A good addition to the John Lewis catalogue - contents available in several forms, including a Sacha Distel Jazz Guitar collection.

I only took an interest in John Lewis after hearing 1999's Evolution. Before that just an MJQ related name - Dad's jazz etc. Of course my prejudice, and those of my time: imprisoned by the spectacle of the avant-garde? So, chastened, I try to undo previous arrogant errors and omissions. And of course, as for Sacha Distel ... I never even knew his origins (thanks Wiki).

1956 must have been a great year for JL. The Paris set is from later in the year that saw, amongst other sessions, the WestCoast-EastCoast Encounter - an essential reference point in the JL canon. This is a nice supplement - similar in style and content, although more mellow, with one horn (Barney Wilen, great on All the things you are).

This set has a 50's Paris Jazz Feel (y'know) like the Lucky Thompson stuff, Chet Baker on Barclay,the Miles Davis Scaffold and the Art Blakey one. Well, maybe a bit subjective, but you get the idea.

Good sound quality on this Lone Hill issue, and the 2 trio tracks from 57 are nice enough - but sound quality not quite so good.

See also 1960's Wonderful World of Jazz (and guess what, another Afternoon in Paris version). Get the Collectables issue with a second cd being Evolution (includes a wonderful solo AinP). And Improvised Meditations & Excursions (1959) is good too - get in the edition with Fred Kaz as second album. Evolution 2 (last recording, 2000?) is beautiful. All in all a wonderful body of work. This cd is a very pleasing part of that lifetime's work.

BTW I think that I became 'open' to JL when I read somewhere about his support for early work of Ornette Coleman.
