Some good ol' Dexter Gordon. Great Encounters.
This was an ex public library set that I picked up for a sawbuck....
Well bought! Wish my library was so literate.
The Art of John Coltrane- The Atlantic Years
I love albums that evoke 50's jazz bachelor pad listening rooms, with Jet Age furnishings, an AR Turntable etc...this album has all of it to the tee...just close your eyes and listen..
Nice playing, but a distant sounding recording...

I'm listening, I hear something...is that the sound of cocktail shakers making their magic potions?
That's what I heard, However the potion only leads to hangovers. Cool follow up post Kingpin
My John Coltrane "The Complete Sun Ship Session" box set on Mosaic records says it's limited to 3,500 albums. Mine is the 1247 pressing. This is the only Mosaic album I have.
Bud Shank - Tomorrow's Rainbow (Contemporary Records)
Lady luck has been with me the last couple of days. Went to the ole' local record store today to see if anything interesting showed up within the last month or so. Flipping through seeing nothing but the same stuff that was there last time. All of a sudden a copy of Lee Morgan Sidewinder appears. Very cool I thought. $18 bucks. Must be a 70's black note. Pulled her out of the stack and flipped it around to look at the back cover. No Liberty. Mmmmmm....getting interesting. Pulled out the vinyl and low and behold its an original NY stereo, ear and all. Couldn't believe it. Vinyl looks barely played. I almost feel guilty.
The search continues. Keep flipping, keep flipping and a copy of Duke at Newport appears. Pull the vinyl out...minty fresh....$9. Hallelujah! Up to the counter, hand the man some cash and out the door. Drove away with a huge smile on my face in disbelief. To me, I came upon two works of art today. I might have to go buy a lottery ticket tomorrow.
Spinning the Duke as I write...
Great scores. Keep on hunting. It does payoff. That Sidewinder is a steal.
