I really, really like the Monk quartet records but some days I like his solo piano sides even more:

Pretty decent lineup here [/understatement]. Waldron's piano (i.e., the one he was given to play) sounds terribly out of tune, but of course the playing by all five men is amazing. I sure wish Dolphy and Monk had recorded together at some point.

This one is underway - sounds very fine so far:

Good one.

Indeed. I don't actually have that edition, but I compiled it from Dolphy's Complete Prestige Recordings and have given it that cover in my iPod. ;D

TD:



First listens to both, and both quite enjoyable. I'm not sure why, but I expected the Carroll to be a bit more avant-garde than it actually revealed itself to be. It isn't straight-ahead by any means, but it isn't way out either - maybe somewhat like David Murray's Ming or something by Booker Ervin if he'd lived another decade or so.

Horace Tapscott - Dial B For Barbra (1980)

pretty sure that opening track called "Lately's Solo" is actually "Milestones"

For me, this box is all you need for this group.  The "Standards Trio" has made probably 20 or more recordings, but this live set, I believe, caught them at their best.
