John Patton - That Certain Feeling (BN). I'd hate to have to chose a favorite John Patton album, but if I had to, this might be it.

That one's a favorite of a lot of people , including me , though it might have to share the title with Memphis To New York Spirit .

My favorite would be a tie between The Certain Feeling and Let 'Em Roll.

The way I feel

Been listening to some Ed Bickert lately -- in particular, the one with Bob Thompson on Sackville. Like his guitar playing.

But I got an lp yesterday that I have never seen -- Victor Feldman's All Stars plays the World's First Album of Soviet Jazz Themes. With Nat Adderley, Harold Land, Joe Zawinul, Frank Butler, Bob Whitlock, Herb Ellis, Carmell Jones.

Looks like I should keep this thread open at all times for the foreseeable future, as I need to transfer a good portion of the LPs I've sold before I ship them away. What's great is that for a long, long time I really got away from digging into the vinyl outside of making transfers on certain LPs right when I got them. So now I will be revisiting a lot of recordings I last heard a long time ago - all the ones that I never transferred (many bought before I could make transfers) give or take the odd dud and anything that was replaced by a CD release.

So, up first was:

Junior Mance, Holy Mama (Inner City) - once you get past the first track, a bass happy rendition of "By The Time I Get to Phoenix" this is a nice hard swinging record.

Now I'm revisiting two Dexters from way back when I was a Dexaholic and not yet the Gene Harris Fanatic. Don't know why I never got this on CD, The Tower of Power is pretty sweet. More Power to follow.

Actually, I like his version of "By the time I get to Phoenix", as well as the rest of the album. It's one of my favourite Mances.

Funny - I was playing them a few days ago.

45s tonight, starting with some Blue Notes:

Bill Henderson with the Jimmy Smith Trio: Ain't No Use/Angel Eyes

Freddie Roach: I Know/Googa Mooga

Lou Donaldson: Mack the Knife/The Nearness of You

Sonny Red: Stay as Sweet as You Are/Bluesville

Then on to:

Hank Marr: Easy Talk/I Remember New York (Federal)

Louis Armstrong: The Beat Generation/Someday (You'll Be Sorry) (MGM)

Papa Celestin and His Tuxedo Dixieland Band: Tiger Rag/Darktown Strutters Ball (Columbia - 1953)

The Bill Henderson and Papa Celestin are equally cool in their own ways - both were recorded as singles; neither is extracted from an album. I wish Smith and Ray Crawford has gotten some solo space on the Henderson record, though. The Louis disc is from the soundtrack of a late-fifties movie.
