Art Blakey - Tough (1956)

Interesting - never seen that before. I assume that's some kind of reissue because the photo of the lady looks like it was taken later than 1956 - in the '60s, maybe (she looks a bit like Mary Tyler Moore, actually).

TD:



This is actually my first time to listen to these recordings - well, most of them. I have heard two or three on other compilations. I'm not really a fan of these comps where the alternate takes are placed right before or after the "official" version - but of course these are such legendary sides that such quibbles are ... well, quibbles.

Looks like Blakey is 1966 release

Thanks - my alternative idea was that it wasn't released until several years after it was recorded, which seems to be the case. Blakey had at least one other album like that (Roots and Herbs) and probably others, too.

This set


Has been sitting on my shelf with its companion (for 1959-1963), and two similar sets from Sonny Rollins, since January. High time to actually listen to them.
There are 4 CDs in the set, with 2 complete albums per CD.  So CD1, playing now, is these two

Hal Galper - Wild Bird (1972)

not sure if I've ever heard Hal Galper before, but this has made me keen to investigate further

Skip to 8.47. . . . Maybe this isn’t strictly jazz but if it’s not, what is it?

Ella & Louis : Porgy & Bess

One of my favorite jazz treatments of the Gershwin masterpiece.  Norman Granz put Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong together on several recordings (Ella & Louis; Ella & Louis Again; Live, P&B); all are excellent, IMO, and you can find the complete set on a 3CD collection, although OOP it is widely available.

A discussion about Andrew Hill on the recordings your are considering thread, got me back into listening to Andrew Hill.  This is a Blue Note recording, that was recorded in 1965 but not released on the Blue Note label until 1975 as part of a compilation album One for One.



Andrew Quintet - Pax

    Andrew Hill - piano
    Freddie Hubbard - cornet (tracks 1-4 & 7)
    Joe Henderson - tenor saxophone (tracks 1-4 & 7)
    Richard Davis - bass
    Joe Chambers - drums



A GREAT band!
