Excellent line-up


Continuing to enjoy the music of Mars Williams. Tatsu and Mars have been friends for ages, and played frequently at Fred Anderson’s Velvet Lounge in Chicago. A most simpaticao duet with fine sonics. Miss you Mars.

Super Trio, maybe so. The instrumentation is not what one may expect from these three. Well excluding Hamid, a wonderful drummer and superb on the frame drum on this particular set. Worth exploring. Heart Trio - Hamid Drake, Cooper Moore, William Parker.

Yet another Chico Hamilton to investigate, :grinning:


Somewhat like Eight Bold Souls in its tonality as it leans into the lower registers, differing in a strong percussive element. Taiko drumming may be a bit much for an early morning listen.

It seems Sonny Stitt’s Tune-up! and Constellation gets a far amount of play here. Rightly so, both are exceptional latter Stitt performances.

Have you had a chance to listen to the records yet? I ‘m really enjoying this via Roon, not sure I want to drop 60 on the vinyl…what do you think?

I have a strong preference for vinyl and thus went straight for the triple LP box set. In addition to that my digital servers are basically full-up. Having a box set in hand is a personal preference. That said in your case I’d think having the digital download is satisfactory.
