Jo Jones Trio
"Jo Jones Trio" (Vinyl)

This might be the only Everest jazz recording I'll ever find.  Just like their classical counterparts, not many survive in playable condition to today, and the jazz catalog was certainly put into the hands of more enthusiastic listeners than someone interested in Sibelius' second symphony.

This recording was released in 1958 and is one of the noisiest, dirtiest records I've ever put on my table.  I just couldn't help myself.

The quality of the recording is there; the drums sound particularly present and vibrant.
From the golden age of jazz to my hi-fi in 2012.  It's amazing what endures.
