The Lateef Nocturnes was quite unusual and interesting - brooding soundscapes you might usually associate with better modern noir-ish films. Unlike anything i've heard from him before, though I've still heard less than half of his discography.

Thanks ... not sure that is for me then. Got some unplayed yet late 'teef around I ought to check out.

A recommended one is "Ballads", and there are also the "Tenors" albums of course ... oh, and the double album with the Belmondo brothers is magnificent!

Guess I'm still in market for more, he is one of my very favourites for sure ... but he seems to have made some new-agey stuff in the late seventies and eighties and I guess I better steer clear of that.

Shorter's early Blue Note albums are perennial favorites of mine.  I go back to them often, today it is this one.

Love Martial Solal ... 90 years and from what I know still going strong. This encounter was recorded in August 2016, first spin, and first impression is mighty good.

Listening to Wayne Shorter reminded me of Dexter Gordon, whom Shorter was obviously influenced by, soundwise.  The BN album Ballads - there's no word to describe it other than "great".

^Take note, though, that Ballads is a compilation album - have you heard the albums those tracks originally appear on?

now:

Of course.   ::)



Sorry, that must have come off as harsh.   But I have a long involvement, over nearly fifty years, with jazz both as a listener and professional musician, having performed with many of the guys you know from their recordings.  So, yes, I have heard all of the basic literature and know the music.

Good one.  This one and Ballads were a nice time out before Coltrane commenced his journey.

Recommenced his journey  :)

Of the three "mellow" (others say: commercial) ones, I like the one with Coltrane best. But Coltrane realky hasn't made a bad album.

I don't understand you here, did you mean to say Hartman, or someone else?  What is the third mellow recording you are thinking of?

Ooops, sorry, put "Ellington" for "Coltrane"  :)

Oh.  I think of that as an Ellington album.  Speaking of which, Ellington's records with Armstrong and Coleman Hawkins are also fantastic.  I feel like I am forgetting another of Ellington's duo recordings.

Agreed! Great stuff. And "Money Jungle" falls into the same period as the Impulse albums.

Not sure what else you could have in mind - Duke & Ella, with Blanton, the hommage to Blanton with Ray Brown ... or maybe rather the Ellington/Hodges co-led 1,5 albums on Verve?

I was thinking the one with Mahalia Jackson, Black, Brown & Beige since I had just been listening to it recently, but I later also thought that Ella at Duke's Place as fitting the bill.

Frank Sinatra also did a "Duke meets" album, but it is not among my favorites.

The two with Johnny Hodges, Back to Back and Side by Side (I know, not really a Duke led session, and he only appears on half of the record) are great.  Money Jungle is good, but something about it does not appeal to me as do all these others.
