Clifford Brown & Max Roach - In Concert
I've actually heard this one, recorded in 1954, once already. Filed under Roach in the store, and the classic Brown/Roach lineup is introduced as "Max Roach's All Stars, featuring Clifford Brown." There's another lineup on the second part of the disc. Pretty good stuff so far.
Miles Davis - Miles Ahead
Dexter Gordon - Go!
J.J. Johnson/Kai Winding/Benny Green - Trombone by Three
Quincy Jones - The Dude
Rahsaan Roland Kirk - Blacknuss
Lee Morgan - Candy
Not as fruitful a trip as usual because I spent a good deal of money on the complete Bruckner masses and on string quartets by the Second Viennese School that together were like $40.
The comparative bunching up of jazz artists in the first half of the alphabet, with artists after Thelonious Monk kind of rare, has something of a parallel to the absurd number of classical composers with names starting in B. In my LP collection the B's fill more than an entire shelf, and not just because of the "Three B's". Does this make sense?
