OK as far as I know all vinyl repressings have been original tracklist.
Cool, thank you. I will likely look at the French route as it is affordable and choices are aplenty right now.
Agree! It is a great demonstration of Duke's piano (as is the other you cite). I used to play this for friends and ask them to guess the pianist. They never got it. (Back then, this was a rare record).
To learn about this session and the story, read pages 242 to 244 of Duke Ellington's memoir titled "Music is My Mistress"
Now playing Hank Mobley, "The Flip" (Jazz in Paris version released this month). Seems to match the mastering of the Connoisseur edition released by Blue Note in 2003; this edition has a production credit of 2003 for Blue Note Records, though it does say "Mastering coordinated by Francois de Xuan". . . .
Hank Mobley was one of my Dad's go to artists so I always knew him as a kid but only recently have I started listening again. I love the Blue Note 50's Sessions.
Yes indeed, a wonderful artist. He was subtler than many tenor saxophonists with rhythmic interplay and melodic invention that doesn't smack you upside the head, but seeps in under your immediate attention.
My Dad was a swing and classical music nut (still is, especially the classical. . . ) so I didn't encounter Hank at home but rather through following Miles Davis from the electric albums that were being released as I was a teen back to earlier works. In fact it was Hank and Wynton Kelly who led me to Blue Note and thus a lot of hardtop and adventurous post-bop, and Miles also led me back to Pops and Duke, due to his reverent comments. . . . Miles led me deep into jazz, and Hank was one of the first artists I followed after Miles. . . .

Louis Armstrong "Legacy Series" on Dot Time Records
Joe Lovano- Trio Fascination ( Blue Note 1998: edition one)
Joe- Tenor, Soprano, Straight Alto Sax's & Alto Clarinet/ Dave Holland- Bass/ Elvin Jones- Drums.
I usually play Ptah, The El Daoud when I need to hear some Alice Coltrane but this is just as good, though with the imtensity lowered a notch (no Joe Henderson duelling with Pharoah this time around). Trying out the 1997 vinyl re-issue I picked up recently. I see Alice Coltrane original vinyl about as often as I eat peanut butter...never.
Would that be less often than you eat broccoli?
Hells yeah! I picked this one up back when it first came out when I was a freshman in college and I've always been absolutely crazy about the title track. Pali Gap and Midnight were my other favs from here. Back then I was a little disappointed with the version of Little Wing that's on here, but now I appreciate hearing the different take on it.
Trying to get a little late night work in and didn't feel like getting the usual listening gear set up, so doing a streamed session tonight using my phone, which is nice because it is allowing to continue my Miles tour with an item that I do not have in my physical collection.
Miles Sess 4 - Workin' with the Miles Davis Quintet
Jazz: Had some Miles on myself yesterday, Seven Steps to Heaven.
Conversation: Recently read that Paul Chambers and Wynton Kelly both died in the late 60s, along with Coltrane of course. How shocking and sad is it that half of the sextet that made Kind of Blue would be gone about a decade later?
I have the Milestone 47002 twofer The Village Vanguard Sessions. Is there a better way to own/hear that material on vinyl?
Wow, great news for Monk fans: a two LP and two CD release of the studio recordings Thelonious Monk made for the film "Les Liasions Dangereuses" featuring tenors Charlie Rouse and Barney Wilen. Another great release with Zev Feldman involvement.

Nice story and great photos!
I only have the 87 US Jazz Heritage. it is a bit noisy, it is not in great shape to be honest.
That is great news! New recordings to me so very exciting. I doubt the vinyl will be available where I am but CD will do fine.
Yes, the CDs will be fine. . .can't wait.
It was in 1959 that Charlie Rouse started working regularly with Monk, though they had played together (and were recorded live) earlier
