Today just found two very interesting Pablo LPs, and will give them a cleaning and spin (and conversion to FLAC) next month when I have time:

- Sarah Vaughan "I Love Brazil!"
- Oscar Peterson & Dizzy Gillsepie

That's a good one - two showoffs equally matched. But I like the Oscar and Harry Edison album even more.

Edison and Eldridge! (Not sure though I've heard th Gillespie ... and definitely haven't - and don't intend to - the Faddis, fourth in that mini series).

Speaking OP an Pablo and duets/meetings, those with Count Basie are wonderful - and I guess OP w/Ella ain't half bad (a change of pace from all the lovely Ella/Pass ones).

The Faddis one is bad. I respect his playing, but he has such a shrill, harsh sound - goes for loudness rather than expression - that it's physically difficult for my ears to listen.

Reading similar reviews and having similar feelings towards him I steered clear of it!

Isn't there actually one with Clark Terry? They collaborated earlier and later, guess that could be nice in just a duo setting, too.

There is a Clark Terry one! I need to buy it! Thanks for the reminder.

Just found another interesting LP at my local crackhouse book/record store. I have very little Brubeck in my collection, but I really love this cover. A lucky find--stereo and in absolutely mint condition.

Just bought:



That Bill Frisell recording is very good, imo.  I haven't heard the Charles Lloyd one you bought, which is odd since I usually listen to everything of his I see (will look for it).  Lloyd's work is always worthwhile and he's released some really fantastic records over the years.  The stuff since he came out of self-induced retirement has been uniformly excellent.

Definitely looking forward to hearing both recordings, David. Love Frisell’s and Lloyd’s work. It’s great seeing two of my musical heroes play together.

Following the five-star review on the Free Jazz Blog:



I have only a couple of Breuker's albums - and have yet to hear either of them (a constant refrain from me, it seems). So I've splurged for this retrospective. A bit pricey (a little over $100 with shipping from the Low Countries), so I hope I like it. :)
