We welcome you with open arms David. That's a marvelous beginning; remember, we are all still learning, there is no end to this journey.
Your honest and sincere beginning has brightened my day, and I wish you an enjoyable journey.
David, if you've been following this thread, you know how much I like Grant Green and Ike Quebec. Here's one of my favorites by Ike;
That vinyl will be worth the wait.
Acman, I've never heard that Max Roach before. I'm glad it's nice and long; I'm listening to it as I type.

Oliver Jones -- A CLASS ACT
A Canadian pianist. His international reputation is far greater than his rep here in the USA. I love his playing. He is like another Canadian Jazz pianist, Oscar Peterson, in that, he is not a creative innovator, but a very fine player. A Class Act indeed.
His career shows the importance of being fully merged into the Jazz scene in this country. It makes a difference.
Here are three tracks from the CD, two written by Jones and one by Bill Evans. All very easy on the ears.
