    (LP Blue Note King Record Japan GXK 8120) 1979 .... recorded on December 11th, 1960 .... to me one of the rather unsung Blue Note gems .... Hank Mobley + Freddie Hubbard fit together perfectly (as they already did on Mobley`s Blue Note date for "Roll Call" recorded a few weeks earlier on November 13th, 1960) and Kenny Drew puts on display his considerable talents both as pianist and composer .... it took me some time to appreciate the intrinsic qualities - but obviously old(er) mills grind slowly ....

    One of my favourite Blue Notes from that era, and an excellent Japanese pressing.

    I have never really listened to Hargrove however I listened to a few clips and like what I hear so I am going to fix that and delve into his catalog.

    This session is a bit of a departure for him. He was primarily a hard bop player, a protégé of Wynton Marsalis and regarded as one of the "Young Lions" in the 1990's.

    Booker Ervin's That's It! Candid CD from '61 with George Tucker, Al Harewood & Horace Parlan.

    He's become one of my favorite tenor players at this point & I'm planning on getting all of his recordings. If you like tenor players and don't have any Booker Ervin, treat yourself and snag some. He's amazing - very expressive and unique. This album is a smoker!

    (CD Blue Note Universal Music Japan UCCQ-5059 SHM-CD) 2015 .... recorded October 2nd, 1963 @ Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey (the "Andrew Hill session") .... Hank Mobley (ts) + Lee Morgan (tp) + Andrew Hill (p) + John Ore (b) + Philly Joe Jones (dr) .... another rather neglected Blue Note release aka Hank Mobley leader date - probably due to the fact that the original vinyl (and subsequent vinyl releases) featured tracks from two different sessions .... later CD editions finally disclosed all tracks from the session with Andrew Hill on piano - and what a beauty these are ....

    Problems at home lately, haven't had much of an urge to listen to music. Agharta is enough to perk me up, though...I swear, come hell or high water, one o' these days I will learn that incredibly funky bass lick Michael Henderson starts playing about eighteen minutes into the "Prelude" section:D

    (CD Blue Note "Blue Note Connoisseur Series" US Press CDP 7243 8 28978 2 8) 1994 .... recorded January 15th, 1961 @ Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey .... rounding off my re-listening of rather unheralded Blue Note classics with this platter aptly featuring superb - but comparatively unsung - Kenny Dorham as leader .... this is great music in pin point execution ....

    In Sweden
    1958 - 60 - Stan Getz (Dragon) 2CD

    with various musicians
    Benny Bailey (trumpet), Ake Persson (trombone), Stan Getz / Erik Norstrom / Bjarne Nerem (tenor sax), Lars Gullin (baritone sax), Ian Johannson / Bengt Hallberg (piano), Gunnar Johnson / Ray Brown / Torbjorn Hultcrantz / Georg Riedel (bass), William Schiopffe / Sune Spangberg / Joe Harris (drums)

    A great mix of studio, concert and radio performances.


    I'm only hearing these two discs for the first time and am impressed with the quality (and quantity) of all the recordings. The package includes a 16 page booklet.

    (CD Prestige New Jazz Universal Japan UCCO-5390 SHM-CD) 2013 .... recorded May 27th, 1960, New York .... Oliver Nelson (ts, as) + Eric Dolphy (as, b-cl) + Richard Williams (tp) + Richard Wyands (p) + George Duvivier (b) + Roy Haynes (dr) .... Oliver Nelson holds his own versus Eric Dolphy and the George Duvivier + Roy Haynes groove ist priceless .... spectacular sound via this japanese SHM-CD series released in 2013/early 2014 - what a pity they didn`t reissue the complete catalogue ....
