    NP Joe Henderson - The State Of The Tenor ~ Live at the VV (Blue Note) Vol. 1&2
    I'm not sure what else can be said about this title but it's as important as Sonny's VV set imho. Ron Carter and Al Foster were inspired choices to accompany Henderson. Ron really covers a lot of territory on his instrument. One of my standout tracks is his take on Monk's Ask Me Now. It's up there with Carmen McRae's reading in cover versions and it is in fact their versions that made me pay closer attention to Monk's many recordings of it. Joe really works it on this date.

    Those two Henderson volumes are incredibly good. My favorite is this version of Sam Rivers' "Beatrice."

    That cover reminds me of Speak Like A Child.

    Joe Henderson - Page One (Blue Note) 1988 cd
    Holy moly this cd is thirty years old! I'm a little tired of Blue Bossa. :hide: I think I've just heard it too much. I really enjoy hearing the rest of the album. Kenny Dorham is superb. What a team.

    NP Art Blakey - Indestructible (Blue Note) Music Matters 45 RPM Pressing
    Ph yeah, this is the shizzle! One of his best? Curtis Fuller is the secret sauce in the Messengers. When he's in the line up special things happen. He makes the great even better.

    I am glad you said that! I can't really listen to My Favorite Things any more. When I first started listening to jazz, this was one of the albums I got. I don't think I played it any more often than say, Giant Steps or Coltrane Jazz, but these hold up much much better for me. I, too, can't see why this album is so highly regarded.

    Coltrane is like Miles; all of it is worth listening. But I have problems with the very late free Impulse stuff...

    John Coltrane - Coltrane (AP 45 reissue)
    This is the Impulse AS-21 record, not to be confused with the eponymous record on Prestige.

    I'm reading Ashley Kahn's very interesting The House That Trane Built: The Story of Impulse Records, and listening to what I have while I go. Very fun.

    NP Elmo Hope - Last Sessions Vol.2 (Innercity)

    I've had vol.1 for years and was pleasantly surprised that there really was a vol. 2 when I ran across this copy a year or two ago.
