    Hey all,
    I am looking for some good jazz arco recordings. I've got most of the PC stuff. Can anyone maybe recommend some recordings of Mraz playing lots of arco? Any suggestions would be great. Thanks/ Pat

    Michael Moore, his duos with Rufus and his other recent work.
    Trio Music by Chick Corea, Mirislov Vitous and Roy Haynes has some great arco playing.
    "Tijuana Moods" by Mingus has nice arco. You should also Check Slam Stewart and Major Holley.
    Getting more out, Ornette Coleman's "Live at the Golden Circle" has amazing solos by David Izenzon.
    Pattittuci is great with the recent Wayne Shorter quartet.

    There's a good Ellington 3 cd set called "The Blanton/Webster Years." There are some really nice arco solos done by Jimmy Blanton on this album (including "Body and Soul"). Hopefully you'll find something good. Keep us posted.
