    Do they actually play any songs on this or is it another repissue of random notes?

    I will have to play them on Pandora or Amazon to find out if it is worth owning.

    I do like Horace Silver and Jimmy Smith. I just do not desire to be (Hep Cat ALERT!!) “catfished”.

      Donald Byrd, Jimmy Smith, and Horace Silver any day of the week.

      There are some quality albums on this list.

    Thank you, Ian!

    Hard Bop can be good so I will give these a listen on Amazon and Pandora first!
