Yes that´s cool. I found it in a second had record store in the 70´s. I think it became a bit a model for me for playing solo myself. I love the way Monk plays stride, even on his own compositions like he did on his last album in London. I learned a lot about the use of the left hand from listening to Monk.

I’m a big Randy Weston fan and have decided to begin revisiting his earliest recordings which are great listens.

This one first: “The Modern Art of Jazz,” released on Dawn Records.

 

 

30476715525357472af0eb732e9f6a5d1bf74f71

Recorded in New York City on November 21 and November 22, 1956

Randy Weston - piano
Ray Copeland - trumpet
Cecil Payne - alto saxophone, baritone saxophone
Ahmed Abdul-Malik - bass
Wilbert Hogan or Willie Jones - drums

 

Then on to:

“The Complete Peggy Lee & June Christy Capitol Transcription Sessions” Mosaic Records disc V

 

 

More Peggy Lee sides with the excellent guitar styling of her then husband Dave Barbour. Great singing and playing and great mono sound, both in the original recording and the mastering for cd.

I was thinking of playing a Duke Pearson album, but saw this one first and it has lovely arrangements by Duke with an all-star (imo) cast and it sure sounds nice this morning.

This is a go-to for me:  I love those Duke Pearson arrangements with Lee.
