Midnight at Minton's
I can't explain my love for Don Byas's music. There is just something magic in it for me. Found this expensive CD at Dave's Music Mine, and picked it up. It's a collection of Don playing with Thelonious monk and others at a club in 1941. You can hear the conversations of patrons there, which really adds to the ambience of it. Maybe one day I'll find a vinyl copy... this stuff doesn't sound right on CD, somehow.
