I think "Portrait of Mahalia Jackson" is one of his greatest compositions - in the context of his entire career. It has an unassuming, gently swaying quality that evokes gospel and blues in an interesting, unorthodox key.

(As for portrait subject: I'm not a big gospel fan, but I love a lot of Mahalia's work - especially her World's Greatest Gospel Singer album.)

I don't know any of her work, I'm going to check out everyone who has a portrait on this record sometime. Thanks for the rec!
Speaking of Ellington, I also really got into the Far East Suite

Far East Suite is my favorite Ellington album of all, Marie. First album to bring drummer Rufus "Speedy" Jones's exotic rhythms to the fore. Thanks for rejuvenating my love of Duke - he was truly "beyond category".

It's Time by Max Roach

Missed posting this on his bday, but i've been listening to him and Art Blakey a lot these past few weeks. I believe the true MB-ers would call this particular album "unassailable"

Just ordered a hard copy (3-CD set) of this one. Must have. Not many out there.
