Check out "Zoot Sims Soprano Sax." It's a masterpiece. He plays with Ray Bryant, George Mraz, and Grady Tate. A great band caught on a great day. It truly is one of the best performances by a band that I've ever heard listening to jazz for over 20 years. All the players mesh on a very deep level. Fantastic.

I like Wynton Kelly's "Piano." It has Kenny Burrell, Philly Joe Jones, and Paul Chambers on it. In many ways it's a Kelly/Burrell recording. Can't beat the cast!! This is very good Kelly and very good Burrell, great chemistry all around.

let's share our obscure albums?, ok but let me today be obscure in the sense of "living or enveloped of darkness," so pls. don't play any of them early 10 p.m. or you'll lost part of their blend of passion, elegance and musical roots. "night train" by oscar peterson (p), "easy leaving" by paul desmond (as) featuring jim hall (g), "old fases old places" by joe sample (p). may I ask an obscure question for someone loving of jazz and challenge, is there any jazz session recorded on October 22, 1957, just 44 years ago?
