    Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers - Ritual (Pacific Jazz) mono, silver on red label.
    This version included Jackie McLean, Bill Hardiman, Sam Dockery, Spanky DeBest and Art of course, from 1957. It's odd that I don't see the label at a website I use sometimes to date albums. This is the first time I stumped it. It's either a first or second pressingthat I'm confident of, just curious to nail it down a bit more.

    I got hold of the 1-22-75 Tokyo soundboard- presumably this is from the same run of shows that gave us Agartha and Panagea. And indeed, the pace of the shows seemed to be uptempo piece-atmospheric piece-uptempo etc. Interesting that (somebody correct me if I'm wrong) some of these pieces were never recorded in the studio (i.e. there doesn't appear to be a studio "Moja" aka "Turnaroundphrase"/"Tune In 5", mainstays of Miles' mid-70's shows)

    After 1977 he chose a path for his sound that I disliked. His link to smooth jazz is a turn of. Even the album covers are uninteresting. But beneath the commercial success the following albums had, there are great tracks you should check.
    Now playing 100 minutes of Grover Washington Jr (KUDU):

    (Part1) Mister Magic, recorded 1974

    Loving Night Dreamer by Wayne Shorter, I bought it in a 5 CD set & neglected it in favour of the other albums to begin with but it's a real grower, what a line up too with Elvin Jones & McCoy Tyner.

    I’d say Night Dreamer might also be a grower but it’s definitely a shower. Today’s material for the back and forth to the office:

    Bill Evans - Complete Sunday at the Village Vanguard

    [​IMG]

    I played disc 2 of this, which would be the 1st two evening sets, for the morning ride.

    Donald Byrd - Fancy Free (SHM-CD)

    [​IMG]


    Miles Davis - The Cellar Door Sessions

    [​IMG]

    And played disc 3 of this.

    Freddie Hubbard - Breaking Point (Blue Note) Heavenly Sweetness reissue

    I have all but given up on getting an affordable version of this album on vinyl so this reissue is working as a place holder in case I get lucky. I prefer it to the Van Gelder Remastered cd. It was the only BN missing in my Hubbard collection on vinyl. Maybe some day I'll get lucky. Yeah right.......The music is wonderful and includes the underrated James Spaulding along with Joe Chambers on drums which is always a sign of quality imo. A friend of mine likes to talk about Curtis Fuller being the secret sauce on his favorite Blakey albums. Imo James Spaulding is the secret sauce on many a blue note album. being proficient on both alto sax and flute provides some textural variety on this and other recordings.

    Second that. One of my favorite recordings. The sound of the recording is a great as the performances itself. I have a hard time getting past the 1st disc because it's so good. The More I See You into Dream Monk is fantastic and the cover of River Man is epic.

    Was playing (I saw this posted up thread also but can't find it right now): Soul Zodiac. I picked this up on used vinyl at a after xmas 30% off sale and couldn't pass it up. Of course my wife being a Taurus she loved it! It probably won't get a ton of spins but sure is a fun listen.

    Back to work and giving this a sample on Spotify. Cannonball Adderley: The David Axelrod Years

    I dig early George Duke stuff so it's hitting the spot at least right now.

    Alto Saxophone, Clarinet – Klas Lindquist
    Bass – Lasse Mørck
    Piano - Magnus Hjorth
    Cornet – Tobias Wiklund
    Drums – Snorre Kirk
    Tenor Saxophone – Jan Harbeck

    This is quite good, surprisingly Ellingtonian in a Lincoln Jazz Center sort of way.

    The first disc -- and I dunno, are these whole sets or just shrewdly edited recordings from a Vanguard run? -- IS better than the second, I think it's just exceptional from start to finish, really one of the best piano trio jazz records I've ever heard, and that includes all the usual acknowledged classics.

    I’ve been meaning to add this one to my collection forever but haven’t gotten around to it. I really dig the River Man version that’s on one of the other Art albums and need to hear this one too. I guess I could always stream the album and check it out myself, but I’ve always been curious what was up with “Dream Monk”, I sort of always assumed it was just a typo and it was actually just a rendition of “Monk’s Dream”.

    Yeah WorldB3,
    Soul Zodiac, the Axelrod years, George Duke playing, that was all mentioned recently.
    But I'm quoting you just to say you're a lucky guy. Not because you bought that album but the fact that your wife likes it.
    Man, my wife hates my jazz :p.

    What about the rest of you guys ?! Is jazz listening a lonely pleasure for you as well ?

    She loves mostly piano trio's and the 60's BN's but doesn't mind something with a little funk also but Miles fusion era and free jazz not so much. She didn't like jazz guitar but I won her over with Grant Green and she has been enjoying the live Wes Montgomery in Seattle and Paris releases almost as much as I this year.

    Hates, hates Prog Rock but that is expected. Pink Floyd and King Crimson is for when I am home alone. Likes the Dead but pretty much sticks to 72 and 77.
