    The amazing genius of Bud Powell vol.2 has to be one of my favorite records of all time. I think its vol. 2 with him on it...

    There is so much and the recordings suggested here are all fantastic. George did a lot of recording in the 50's-60's like his friend Milt Hinton.
    Here are a few of my fav's :

    Sonny Clark Trio on Time - Late 50's w. Max Roach.

    Shelly Mann 2-3-4- on Impulse, 62-63 w. Hank Jones, Coleman Hawkins.

    Cool Sounds of Pepper Adams w. Hank Jones, Elvin Jones.

    This is just a few but he did a lot of dates w. Lockjaw Davis, Hank Jones, Benny Goodman, you name it....

    Check out YouTube.... I am trying to find the other tune that George plays w. Ben Webster, Hank Jones, Papa Jo Jones, etc. They play"Chelsea Bridge" and George bows on it w. shades on !!!! I have it on DVD. They just followed Ahmad Jamal's trio and all hung out around the piano.. Priceless !!!

    Ok, combined w. C Jam Blues.... w. the breaks.... Ya, man....

    Ben and Sweets is one of my favorite records of all time. George sounds fantastic on it.

    I haven't heard lots of his material, but really like The Heavy Hitter from Eddie Davis.

    "It's What's Happenin', The Varitone Sound of Clark Terry" on Impulse. George is recorded
    clearly at a number of tempos playing blues, rhythm changes with a five and dime bridge, and standards. Easy to transcribe bass lines and features the underrated Don Friedman on piano. A fun album.

    I like his playing on Thad Jones' "The Magnificent Thad Jones, Vol. 2" (him and Elvin.. ooh, yeah.. and really great tunes/arrangements by Thad).

    I'm not sure that I'm qualified to say which are his best, but I'm listening to Ben and Sweets right now and it's very tasty in an old school, easy, blusy, fat sound kind-a way.
