Re-visiting My Favourite Things with Elvin Jones, Bob Cranshaw and McCoy Tyner — the Coltrane group still hot from the Crescent session. 1964 Blue Note reissued by Heavenly Sweetness, a jazz must.

With Larry Young, Elvin Jones and Bobby Hutcherson.

Two LPs: ‘Space Flight’ (1960) with Sam Lazar (organ), Willie Dixon (bass) and Chauncey Williams (drums); and ‘Iron City’ (1967) with Big John Patton (organ) and Ben Dixon (drums).

From 1963 — with Wendell Marshall (bass), Willie Bobo (drums), Johnny Acea (piano), Carlos ‘Patato’ Valdes (congas), Gavin Masseaux (chekere); and on the last two Ike Quebec and Sonny Clark.

With Joe Henderson, Duke Pearson, Bobby Hutcherson. The title-track is lengthily, meltingly gorgeous.

From 1972, including three killer JB’s, the funkiest of them In The Middle. Seventies issue with blue Liberty labels: the vinyl is perfect; the sleeve excellent, still wrapped, with a cut-corner top-right.

The Nigeria, Oleo and Gooden’s Corner sets, including a killer It Ain’t Necessarily So.

With Larry Young, Candido and Harold Vick in 1965. Canteloupe Woman, Selma March…  Coupled with the LP Up With Donald Byrd from the year before, with Herbie, Stan The Man, Candido again…
