His Columbia recordings, however, remain some of the most inspired, mood-jumping jazz in history. The flowing sadness of "Goodbye Porkpie Hat" (unedited here for the first time on CD!) rings like a funeral ch ... (more)

"1959 Favourite song: "Fables of Faubus" Favourite moment: Lots of 'em. The very last chord of "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat", for one."

I think out of any artist on this discs lineup Dannie Richmond is the best.
