Duke really was something. He could make credible records with Louis Armstrong or Coleman Hawkins one day, and then hang with Mingus and Roach the next.
He certainly was. An incredible artist.
A recent purchase.

Bass – Drew Gress / Drums – Tom Rainey / Piano – Fred Hersch
Recorded at the Village Vanguard in New York City on July 18, 1997. Issued in gatefold cardboard sleeve.
Fred Hersch Trio & Fred Hersch Solo albums have been one of this years great discoveries for me. This is another impressive live album and yet another release that was recorded at "The Village Vanguard".
I'm gonna guess that's not available on streaming services or CD.

The Complete Hank Mobley Blue Note Sessions 1963 - 70
This is some great music. Dreamy, spacey, and classically influenced, even by the usual ECM standards. I enjoy the piano of Florian Weber as much as the trumpet playing of Markus.
I'm a fan of Markus, not so much of his father Karlheinz Stockhausen, but am not very familiar with Florian Weber's work. I'd love to hear recommendations from anyone familiar.
Happy birthday to jazz musician and composer, Sam Rivers — born September 25, 1923.
Sprinkle a little hard-bop and post-bop, a touch of the blues and a good dollop of the avant-garde into a mixer and you get these two Blue Note masterpieces . . .
