Favorite Albums

Benny Goodman - 1938 Carnegie Hall Re-issue
historic, great collaboration with Duke and the Count's men, acrobatic drumming from Gene Krupa

Satch Plays Fats-Re-issue - Louis Armstrong & All Stars
Collectors Item-made in the mid-50's..first class small group swing.. huge solo work by Satch, Trummy Young, and Barney Bigard.. re-issue in 2000 adds some old Fats 'cuts' by Satch (from the 30's)

Armstrong Plays WC Handy Re-issue - Louis Armstrong & All Stars
classic sessions by the All Stars with a blind WC Handy (not long before his death) sitting in on the arrangements & talking with Avakian.. sweet vocals by Velma.. solid support work by the small ensemble.. light-hearted..

Duke at Newport 1956 Re-Issue - Duke Ellington
It rocked the foundations of jazz.. Paul Gonsalves' 27 chorus solo in the Diminuendo.. what else can you say?

All The Cats Join In - Randy Sandke
