GONSALVES Paul 1970-72

Most of this album was recorded at the earlier date. Duke Ellington's longtime tenor, Paul Gonsalves, was a perfect match for the inventive pianist, Earl Hines, who (along with bassist Al Hall and drummer Jo Jones) is in top form on five standards, three by Ellington. The music swings hard and has its surprising moments. The one track from 1972 is a solo version of "Blue Sands" played by its composer Earl Hines. This album should please the fans of Hines and Gonsalves, two masterful players who had only previously recorded together once, on a date shared by the pianist and Johnny Hodges.

Hi Daniel--
Another post of beautiful music--thanks so much! I have a question: Why is your audio a combination of MP3 and M4A files?
(On this one #1,3,4, and 6 are M4A and the others are MP3s.)
I have to open ITunes to hear M4A's and can't burn them to disc with my software. Just curious...
anyway, thanks--the music is much appreciated. --Joel

HI JOEL, GLAD YOU LIKE GONSALVES. MP3 AAC... I'M ON A MAC... WHEN I DON'T RIP ALL THE TRACKS AT THE SAME TIME, I DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO THE CODING BECAUSE MAC READS BOTH AS WELL AND I DON'T BURN ANY CD'S OUT OF AUDIO CD'S... I'LL TRY TO CHECK BETTER. BEST. DANIEL
