Today's pick is "Ballads by Cobb" by Arnett Cobb. I don't know too much about Cobb's catalog but I do like this album. This record is bluesy renditions of a bunch of jazz standards you've probably heard before but they are done so well here it doesn't matter. Cobb has his own style as well. This copy is an Analogue Productions reissue that was released a few years ago. 

Reflex M + PSU-1 used with AT VM95ML, Stanton 680mkII + Ogura, and Shure M35X cartridges.

New here but pleased to see this (“old”) thread Smile! I’ll add my two pence worth by suggesting Virtuoso by Joe Pass - an absolute masterclass in jazz guitar.

Today's pick is Sonny Rollins' Freedom Suite LP. This was originally released in 1958 on the Riverside label. My copy is a 70s reissue from the Japanese branch of the Milestone label.

Joe Pass is amazing. I've got a couple things by him including a CD of that album but definitely need more.

Today's pick is a 1968 recording by Charles Tolliver and His All Stars

This album has been released under a few different names with different cover art over the years. My copy is the 2019 version done by Pure Pleasure Records with Strata East.

Just discovered this wonderful piano trio version of 'Stolen Moments' by the great Ahmad Jamal on YouTube:


Another album I'll have to shop for now.... Wink
