Bill Berry and the LA Band 'Hot and Happy' (Beez)

One of those vinyls that do not seem to have made it to CD.

Bill Berry assembled an all-star big band with musicians of the calibre of Blue Mitchell, Conte Candoli,Teddy Edwards, Richie Kamuca, Dave Frishberg, Leroy Vinnegar, etc...

Two very different hunks of vinyl from about the same time:

Paul Desmond - Pure Desmond (CTI); with Ed Bickert, Ron Carter and Connie Kay.

Wildflowers 5 (Douglas); Two side-long pieces: Sunny Murray with Byard Lancaster, David Murray, Kahn Jamal and Fred Hopkins; Roscoe Mitchell with Jerome Cooper and Don Moye.

Louis Armstrong - Disney Songs the Satchmo Way (Buena Vista). Yeah, I know. Laugh if you must, but this 1968 album has some of the very best of Louis' late-in-the-day trumpet solos. And his singing brings so much life to some pretty stupid songs, cornily arranged. Of course, there are a few good songs, too.

But damn, there's some magnificent trumpet playing here.

Horace Silver 'Silver's Serenade' (BN, mono, NY label, RVG stamp and ear)

Wanted to compare this to the McMaster CD release which I listened to and which left me so disappointed.

No comparison! The CD sounded flat and missed all the sharp outbursts of Louis Hayes' drumming or the deep mellow fingering from the bass of Gene Taylor that I remembered so well from numerous listening of that mono LP!
