Bags on Bags - nice! i've been listening to Bags' Opus a decent amount lately. not a MJQ record, but a Bags solo album. it's a really good album; mellow, with a nice lineup:

Milt Jackson (Bags)
Benny Golson (underrated sax/composer)
Art Farmer
Tommy Flanagan
Paul Chambers (Mr. PC)
Connie Kay (MJQ drummer)

it's from 1958 and was originally recorded for United Artists. i have the Blue Note reissue on CD.

thelarmis, I went to an old cafe yesterday and heard some great classics on vinyl, including an Art Farmer & Donald Byrd duo album that knocked me out.
