I’ve overlooked Mary Lou Williams over the years.

She was a very talented stride pianist.


I’ll be exploring more of her albums fo sure.

Bird (Charlie Parker) was just a teenager cutting his music teeth and hanging out in the alleys, behind the Jazz nightclubs of 12th Street in Kansas City, Missouri where Count Basie, Lester Young, Mary Lou Williams and other jazz legends engaged in marathon jam sessions regularly. Mary Lou Williams had a long and productive career in music.

Very good remaster.
I don't know why they call it the Horace Silver Quintet, because I believe it was Art Blakey who was the leader then.
Correct, Wiki says:

Horace Silver and the Jazz Messengers is a 1956 repackage of 1954 and 1955 releases by jazz pianist Horace Silver with drummer Art Blakey as well as Hank Mobley on saxophone, Kenny Dorham on trumpet, and Doug Watkins on bass. By the time of this repackage, this quintet had named themselves the Jazz Messengers, and the band name on the re-release reflected that.

Nice! If you into Jazz Funk, try Victor Wooten if you have not before.

One more of Keith Jarrett.

One of the best recordings for Keith Jarrett's mid-'70s American quartet (whose style differed sharply from its European doppelgänger), The Survivors' Suite opens with Jarrett's aching, breathy sigh on the bass recorder, evoking the sound of a horn somewhere across a great expanse of fog.

Percussion soon punctuates the melodic line to give the opening a more spiritual, ritualistic feel, which is only the first of many mutations that this album will go through. Divided into two parts, entitled "Beginning" and "Conclusion," this suite effortlessly flows between its movements which range from fiery free jazz to open, meditative atmospheric pieces showing heavy input from indigenous musics to instrumental solos that owe a sylistic debt to the music of the previous decade.

Jarrett has strong solos in both the first and second track, but his performances rise to the surface frequently to add warmth to the suite. The greatest contribution that he makes on this album, however, is as a composer, as its complex components seem to nestle together seamlessly again and again, even if the solos occasionally rapidly expand and contract with kinetic energy.

As strong a hand as Jarrett has in this album, however, he definitely owes a debt to his supporting players, especially the passionate Dewey Redman and skilled Paul Motian, but Charlie Haden plays an important role in the execution of the suite as well, even if only to provide a skeleton to hang the more fluid elements on. Like other albums of its time, this was beginning to show the brightness, lightness, and soft edges of contemporary jazz, but the solidness of Haden's bass helps keep it rooted and earthbound.
