This was delivered this morning, Discs 1 through 4 so far. I do not regret the investment ....


I finally broke down and ordered this as well - it came on Monday. So far I've only listened to disc 1, which included the magnificent Hawkins extended "Body and Soul" and the delightful Hampton jam session with Herschel Evans and Charlie Shavers. Looking forward to more gems in the coming days!

Spinning these right now! They alone are worth the buy!

Besides the Basie sides, my favourites are the Teddy Wilson big band tracks. The Glen Miller band swings much harder than in the studio.

Playing some Jimmy Smith on the show this afternoon in honor of his birthday, so revisiting this set for the first time in many years:


Very good picture. But I'm now with this:


I stumbled about a thread about this box from 2017 or 18 (when it was about to come out) and picked it up. And I'm enjoying it immensely. What I like most are his solos, but his orchestra is also great, with at times Roy Eldridge, Ben Webster and Cozy Cole, or Goodman, Lionel Hampton and Gene Krupa, or his interventions with singers, such as Ella Fitzgerald.
