Recorded August 15, 1970 in Newark's Cliche Lounge. My lord Muhammad is funky, and Bartee is fantastic as well here - of course Green just storms out of the gate on these tracks. Just a straight up funk-groove session. Love this album!
LIVE IN NEW YORK 1971 - PAUL DESMOND with MODERN JAZZ QUARTET (Gambit) CD
Tracks 1-7 feature
Paul Desmond (alto sax), Milt Jackson (vibes), John Lewis (piano), Percy Heath (bass), Connie Kay (drums) - recorded 24th December 1971 (or so it says on the sleeve)
Tracks 8-14 feature
Milt Jackson (vibes), John Lewis (piano), Percy Heath (bass), Mikey Roker (drums) - recorded live in Philadelphia, 1992
I bought this lengthy (79:15 minute) CD prior to being aware that Gambit is one of a number of labels operating out of Andorra that survive by cloning music from other discs or copying from other (unknown) sources. Sound quality is surprisingly very good here on both these live recordings. There is an 8 page booklet included, but no mention of who originally issued or recorded these two concerts.
John Coltrane - My Favorite Things
Pure pleasure has an excellent reissue that is highly recommended. Constant rotation.
John Zorn: The Interpretation Of Dreams
John Zorn: The Bribe: Variations and Extensions On Spillane
Had just posted here some Desmond LPs:
Listenin' to Jazz and Conversation
Probably one of them is on your CD?
Anyway I have a lot of Gambit CD's. All in good quality and with excellent booklets. Discogs files the label under "bootleg" but thats only their opinion.
Wizard Of The Vibes - Milt Jackson (Blue Note) CD
also issued on CD as
MILT JACKSON and the THELONIOUS MONK QUINTET (Blue Note)

There are four two alternate takes included on this edition, two from each session. The CD issued in 2001 was remastered in 24 bit by RVG.
A new John Coltrane album will be released September 27 that includes a session recorded for a film in 1964. So far the only place to order I see is for the SHM-CD version at CDJapan.co.jp

In A Silent Way - Miles Davis (Columbia) CD
Dave Holland (bass), Tony Williams (drums), Chick Corea | Herbie Hancock (electric piano), Joe Zawinul (electric piano / organ), John McLaughlin (guitar), Wayne Shorter (tenor sax), Miles Davis (trumpet)
Outstanding band, outstanding album. I'm particularly pleased with the sound of the edition that was included in the amazing The Complete Columbia Album Collection box set.

John Zorn: Filmworks XXIV: The Nobel Prize Winner
I was searching for two or three years for an affordable original LP - to no avail. The same day I decided to look for the Mosaic Select box set, I found the LP in a store. Fantastic album, except for the vocal part, but maybe that's just me.
