Disc II.  Wow.  Quiet, ambling, relaxed, fun.  Fantastic sound.  Really like they are in the room.

Darryl "The Munch" Jones plays bass on Decoy (and You're Under Arrest), who I know better from Sting's first two jazzy solo records (before Sting became an insufferable "m.o.r." a-hole). I'm also learning just now that he took over as bassist for The Rolling Stones after Bill Wyman left.
Tutu contains compositions of Miller.

Good stuff - thanks for the info guys :)
I am copying Tutu, Amandla, Decoy and Star people to my music player and will listen to them soon too!

Just listened to a few tracks from Tutu and now listening to this compilation (I changed my mind and was feeling like listening to some older style Jazz) :):

That is a great album.

I listened to this today, which sounded like your regular Sanders' recording. No big surprises here.

Listened to a few albums from the Blue Note box today (see below)
Now Playing:



Like a lot of the people here im a box-set freak and if I had to choose I would say this is one of the top 2 or 3 boxes in my collection - I think I like almost everything in this box and its a very handsome physical object too.
It seems to have gone OOP now and is selling for silly prices which is a shame but im pretty sure the individual albums are not at all rare :)

That is a great album.

Yeah, it is. Wasn't really interested in Dolphy till I saw him live playing on television with a Charles Mingus group. His appearance stroke me and I got his playing more. Still need to explore him more and listen more closely though to really connect.

Need to listen to that one also more closely. Could be one of the best jazz albums all time.

Similarly, for me it was Mingus Live at Antibes album that made me appreciate Dolphy playing, followed by the Five Spot live recordings.
