Going overboard... Not posting pictures because I have to order and type on my phone, my laptop sadly being busted  :(

"Five Original Albums" space saver boxes of Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, and Grant Green (these are official Blue Note releases not bootlegs)

- Shelly Manne Live at the Black Hawk (complete box)
- Encounter (Pepper Adams, Zoot Sims, etc)
- Gerry Mulligan Meets Johnny Hodges
- Bags & Trane
- Ballads & Blues (again with Bags)
- an off brand twofer of Bags' albums Statements and Vibrations feat. Hank Jones and others
- Night Train (Oscar Peterson)
- The Jazztet and John Lewis
- Only the Blues (Sonny Stitt, Roy Eldridge, Oscar Peterson trio)
- Out of the Forrest (Jimmy Forrest)
- The Thumper (Jimmy Heath)
- The Sermon (Jimmy Smith)
- Sammy Rimington Quintet
- Screamin' (Jack McDuff)
- Screamin' the Blues (Oliver Nelson and Eric Dolphy)
- Tenor Giants (Zoot Sims, Eddie Davis, Oscar Peterson)
- George Shearing & Cannonball Adderley Quintets at Newport
- Norman Granz' "Greatest Concerts" set on Pablo

That should keep me busy for the rest of 2020.

Most of those I haven't even heard, but considering the personnel I'd think you could scarcely go wrong. I do know the Shelly Manne Black Hawk set is excellent (I have the individual releases). :)

I have some of the albums. The Jimmy Heath disc is my favorite. I haven’t heard Rimmington.

Not a new release, but Tubby Hayes The Complete Fontana Albums (13 CD box) showed up on Amazon for an attractive price.
I ordered it for $48.20 incl. shipping and tax. Will have to wait and see whether it ships (limited inventory).


I have limited experience with British jazz...have long enjoyed Dizzy Reece, Victor Feldman and Harry Beckett (never heard much George Shearing for whatever reason), recently fortunate to discover (OK, rather late) Mike Westbrook and Barry Guy. The Hayes box seems worth a shot.
