I only recently discovered him as a band leader. His recordings are really great.

That one I thought particularly nice with a more subdued tone and great contributions from Kenny Burrell.

Wailin at the Village Vanguard. Art Taylor.  Exciting band with great tenor and alto saxes.



SimonNZ

Huh. I went through a phase of trying to hear all the albums recorded at the Village Vanguard, but I don't recognize that one.

Hearing a set at the VV would be one of the few things on my bucket list that actually involves travel (mostly its stuff like "learn to play Go")

I don't know the blue album. Looks very interesting as I love Louis Hayes.
I like the album below. Since there is no piano or horn, the music sounds simple/unpretentious and you feel that you really are at the club. You may want wine or Brandy with this recording.

I don't listen to jazz too often, but a coworker likes to recommend music for me to try.

Thad Jones' album Consummation (1970), particularly 'Us', with the Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra.

"All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff."

^ I remember really liking that album, though its been a long while since I've heard it.

Will try and give it a listen later today. Thanks for the reminder.

That Marsalis album and his J mood are vg albums!

SimonNZ



Played this twice today, and a number of other Kenny Dorham albums over the last four or five days

^ Nice recording. I think Miles had a good opinion of him.
