A real treasure. I remember when I bought it 1977 or 78 when it came out with that album cover. First I was annoyed by that long and strange introduction speech over the music from the start of the theme Rifftide into Miles´ solo.

Miles is really strong on that, he almost had reached to point where he could get near Fats Navarro. James Moody sounds astonishing "modern" and plays some of the most brilliant bop tenor I ever heard, with all respect for Dexter and Wardell.

And it´s a rare occasion to hear more solo feature by Dameron. He´s much more than just an "arranger´s style pianist". His solo on Don´t Blame me is beautiful !

Antonio Arcaño y sus Maravillas 1944-51 (Tumbao)

I listened to a couple of songs on YouTube. I didn't like them as much as the album you posted the other night, but not bad.

This morning, I've been listening to The Individualism of Gil Evans:

What an astonishing record. Today, "The Barbara Song" made my hair stand on end.

Astonishing is the word.

Just reacquainting myself with this one. I can't believe that I disposed of the vinyl soon after I bought it.  Can't think why listening to it now.

Got the Fresh Sound reissue on CD today - nice surprise. This 1972 date would have fitted nicely into the Prestige catalogue of the time. The girl on the cover is Pony Poindexter's daughter Deana, who even sings a bit on twp tracks. Her dad taught her to sing along with the themes.
