Re: Yeah I saw the thread
I bought volume two of Genius of Modern Music just my last record-store trip. I like it better than vol. 1 -- my gripe with that one is that the entire middle dozen or so tracks are his standard compositions done by piano trio only. Not awful, but alternate takes following each track without any difference in tone color between the tracks, and the tracks being so familiar on top of it, is kind of grating. The other two vol. 1 sessions and everything on vol. 2 I like.
I think Blakey plays on every track in the two albums.
