- From the 2011 album on the Brainfeeder lable – piano prodigy Peralta delivering exciting modern jazz with the assistance of Zane Musa (alto sax), Ben Wendel (tenor and soprano), Hamilton Price (bass) and Zach Harmon (drums).
- Cannonball with an all star band from October 1958 on the Riverside lable with Percy Heath(bass), Art Blakey (drums), Wynton Kelly (piano) and Milt Jackson (vibes).
- Recorded in New York in 2000 and released on the Birdology lable – Ahmad Jamal: piano; James Cammack : bass; Idris Muhammad: drums.
- This 1960 album was Etta’s first album for Prestige , and although she had been releasing records since 1944, including a dozen reords for RCA in 1946 and an album for King Records in 1957, she was treated as an overnight sensation when the title tune from the album went gold, hitting the Top 40 on the pop charts and reaching number five on the R&B charts.
- Classic ‘Trane from 1961 and a co-composition with McCoy Tyner – great solos from Freddie Hubbard and Eric Dolphy.
- Blanchard’s debut recording on the Concord label from 2009. The band features pianist Fabian Almazan, with Derrick Hodge on bass, drummer Kendrick Scott, Lionel Loueke on guitar and saxophonist Walter Smith III.
- Columbia Records 1962 debut release featuring the Thelonious Monk Quartet of Monk (piano), Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), John Ore (bass), and Frankie Dunlop (drums).
- The name of the band, album and tracks are derived from the letters of the forenames of Collin Walcott (tabla, sitar), Don Cherry (tpt, p, hunter’s guitar), and Nana Vasconcelos (per). This is multi-ethnic improvisational music, emerging from Walcott’s interest in Eastern Indian rhythms and Vasconcelos’s Brazilian heritage.
- Walcott appears again here with Paul McCandless, Glen Moore and Ralph Towner which was the classic Oregon line up. A 1974 release on the Vanguard Lable.
