Fine post, Marc! "Grand Encounter" and "On Stage" are favorites in my record collection. I was lucky enough to hear Perkins in the 90s with a latter-day Bill Holman orchestra at the Wigan Jazz Festival here in Greater Manchester UK.

Informative and enjoyable, thank you very much. Perkins was doing fine work a decade later with the relatively unmentioned Clare Fischer.
