That's a rare album. How's the pressing? French-made LPs weren't that great back then.
Jaspar is another underrated and forgotten tenor saxophonist.
Me too! Might even get it today if they do a Sunday delivery (which they sometimes decide to do if deliveries are getting backed up).
Today is Hank Mobley's birthday, so I've been playing his records. Put this on a moment ago. Beautiful, rich, powerful mono sound.

This is a japanese reissue from 2012, so I can't tell how the original LP sounds, but this one really shines (sound wise). Atelier Sawano (the reissue company) reissued this also on CD as a digipack version, in case you're interested: BOBBY JASPAR QUINTET - it uses the same mastering from the original master tapes as the LP (there's always a digital step involved at Sawano's, but I couldn't care less).
And yes, Jaspar is highly underrated. Except for Liège, his hometown, where I happen to be 2-3 times a month. Even non-jazz listeners happen to know him.
Pittsburgh, 1958 - Dodo Marmarosa (Uptown) CD
Tracks 1-13 recorded at Midway Lounge, Pittsburgh, Pa, March 5 or 6, 1958
Tracks 14-16 from the TV program 'Jazz Scene', WQED, Pittsburgh, Pa, Spring, 1962
Track 17 recorded at University of Pittsburgh, Stephen Foster Memorial Hall, Oakland, Pa, Sunday afternoon, March, 1956
Tracks 18-19 recorded at Wayne Pazcuzzi studio, Pittsburgh, Pa, November 8, 1957
Great music and very interesting recordings (from a historical point of view) that were privately taped at four different sessions between 1956 & 1962, and by the sound of it in front of a small groups of people each time. The sound quality does fluctuate a bit from date to date but overall is acceptable enough.
There is a 32 page booklet included in the package.
Thanks for the link. I listened to the audio samples but decided not to get it; I have other, more pressing priorities at the moment. Thanks anyway.

Joe McPhee Po Music - Oleo & A Future Retrospective
I had the pleasure of listening to this one a few times this weekend and I totally agree that it's very good. Worth seeking out most assuredly. The 'Deep Jazz Reality' series can be 'hit or miss' for me but this one's a keeper! Thanks for the recommendation.
If you haven't already, I'd highly recommend adding some Johnny Smith in the mix. He's a recent discovery for me and I've fallen in love with a lot of his records.
One Night In Washington - Dizzy Gillespie with The Orchestra (Collectables/Elektra) CD
Dizzy with Orchestra and specially added rhythm section for the Latin Music captured live, and everyone in crackin' form too!
I don't know it, but it seems to me really interesting.
I can imagine a sound that reminds Centipede, Keith Tippett, Brotherhood of Breath and so on.
