Johnny Hodges - I'll Get By.pdf
This album features some of the great legends of jazz playing side-by-side in what is essentially a jam session environment. During a multi-ballad medley, Johnny Hodges' version of "I'll Get By" stands out as a great feature of his style of playing.

Greg Osby - East St Louis Toodle-oo.pdf
This opening track from Osby's "St Louis Shoes" serves as a representation of the rest of the music on the album. It opens with a very faithful rendition of a very old tune, followed by a virtuoso but traditional bowed bass solo, followed by a more contemporary trumpet solo, followed by this, a thoroughly fresh and modern solo.

The Gratitude album is a series of tributes to past masters- this one is a tribute to Charlie Parker and Mr. Potter plays alto on it. It's a trio version of the tune (with Scott Colley and Brian Blade on bass and drums respectively) that features a 7/4 version of the classic intro.
