I guess this is the place to post this:

The World of Duke Ellington, Vol. 1 (Columbia) The first of three late-40s/early 50s two-LP sets. In my case I'm listening to them digitized and dumped to iPod, since I'm away from home. Somebody in the world must have issued these on CD, though - iTunes recognized my home-made CDs.

There is some absolutely brilliant stuff here from a somewhat overlooked period. The best tracks are as good as anything Ellington ever did, except for a handful of absolute masterpieces.

Red Norvo Trio - The Savoy Sessions.

with Tal Farlow and Charles Mingus.

70s twofer of early 1950s sessions. Mono.

Just an aside - Eddie Diehl, a master guitarist who claims Tal Farlow as a major influence, told me that he considers Farlow's playing on these recordings to be some of his finest work.

Thanks. While not an expert, I couldn't disagree.

Sidney Bechet - King of the Soprano Saxophone (Good Time Jazz) French recordings from the fifties. The standout session is the 1954 date with Jonah Jones and a French rhythm section - Sidney was at his best with a strong trumpet player to keep him in line.

And it occurred to me that some here might not know that Good Time Jazz was Contemporary's traditional jazz subsidiary. I wish they had come up with a better name.
