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.
