    I thought this thread was going to be about "Giant Steps" or "Kind Of Blue". I just picked up Sonny Rollins' "Volume 2" on LP and I love it.

    Jessica: Check out my mini-review I posted in this thread of the Blu-ray disc of the concert. The blu-ray has some tracks that the DVD apparently does not (rooftop sessions).

    Since you are such a big Krall fan (as am I) I will have to check out your recommendation in your other thread of Melody Gardot. I am unfamiliar with her work.

    Discovered Melody Gardot the other day on Sirius' Watercolors jazz channel and immediately bought her two albums. She's amazing. Just her voice is enough for me, but her story is truly inspirational. She was almost killed by a car while riding her bike when she was 19, and turned to music therapy to help in her recovery. She's still partially disabled; she wears an electro-stimulator to relieve intense spinal pain, is hyper sensitive to light (she always wears shades) and walks with a cane, but her music gets her through it. But even without this backstory, her songs, and the way she delivers them are inspiring in themselves. I can't get Who Will Comfort Me from My One and Only Thrill out of my head.
