Some of Thomas' best recordings were in collaboration with organist Eddy Louiss, most notably the Dreyfus album "Eddy Louiss Trio" with Kenny Clarke. Another good one is Stan Getz' "Dynasty" with Louiss, Thomas, and Bernard Labat.

Allen Lowe

the best thing on that show is Jaspar - and especially astounding because I've never heard him go that far out of the changes on any recording - amazing stuff -


Allen, You can hear more of this side of Jaspar on the Mal Waldron album "Interplay" reissued under Coltrane's name. (Trane, Idrees, and Freddie Webster are the other horns.)
