I've got the Lone Hill packaging of that Blue Note material and need to listen to it again. BTW, in those fine Shelly Manne clips (what a together band!), the J. Williams who wrote that first pensive piece that Russ Freeman plays so beautifully, "The Isolate Pawn," is none other than John Williams, future film composer of large reputation and income. "The Isolate Pawn" is from Williams' score for the TV show "Checkmate," starring Sebastian Cabot. The Manne group did a fine album of "Checkmate" material. BTW, Richie Kamuca is in great form on these clips.

Came across the Lonehill in a used record store a couple of years ago and it was certainly a good buy! Of the four sessions that make up the album, the one with the New York quartet particularly appeals. Thanks for the intriguing background information on the blindfold test sides. I well remember that feature in Downbeat's heyday!

Marc thank you for this wonderful piece on Conte Candoli.
What a superlative band on Speak Low.
Russ Freeman on piano, Monte Budwig on bass, Shelly Manne on drums and the explosive front line of Richie Kamuca and Conte.
What happened to musicians like this?
How did it all go upside down?

Anyways thank you Marc.
Keep the good work.
