Fine album. Arguably better than Live in Paris or Berlin.

This trio was featured on Tomasz Stanko’s albums The Soul of Things, Suspended Night, and Lontano. Stanko, for those that don’t know, was at the forefront of the Polish jazz scene and especially so after the death of his former band leader and mentor, Krzysztof Komeda.

Great choice, John!

Sam Rivers was not nearly as right for this band as Wayne Shorter, so my vote goes to the Berlin live recording.  The Live in Europe record, which I assume you mean by "Paris" features George Coleman, who though not as great as Shorter, is still better, IMO, than Rivers for this music. So I'd rank them Berlin, Europe, Tokyo.

But it's all good stuff and your preference is yours.

Sketches of Spain is an album by Miles Davis, recorded between November 1959 and March 1960 at the Columbia 30th Street Studio in New York City. An extended version of the second movement of Joaquín Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez (1939) is included, as well as a piece called "Will o' the Wisp", from Manuel de Falla's ballet El amor brujo (1914–1915).

Yes I like Sam Rivers, plus Miles sounds vg in the Tokyo album. The Europe has Milestones though the sound quality is not great. They all are wonderful.

Fantastic, as are all of Anouar Brahem's recordings.

Sacred Concert by Duke Ellington is one of the following realizations:

    1965 - Concert of Sacred Music
    1968 - Second Sacred Concert
    1973 - Third Sacred Concert

Ellington called these concerts "the most important thing I have ever done".

Heard a little snippet of Clothilde Rullaud In Extremis on the radio. Sounds very intriguing? Anyone know her work?

Dave Brubeck - Brubeck A La Mode (1960)

I was going to say "bad cover / fine album", but I see on Wikipedia that the cover image may be a deliberate allusion to the civil rights lunch counter sit-ins of the time.

That might be true, but it is more likely a homage to an American idiom: serving something, especially a dessert, with a scoop of ice cream on it is "a la mode". So apple pie a la mode, etc.
