Now listening to Pat Martino the return with Steve LaSpina and Joey Baron, this was the first album Pat Martino did after recovering from a brain surgery which made him lose completely the memory and thus the capacity to play, he had to relearn how to play guitar and this album was the first public appearance, if I'm not wrong
An amazing live record by a true genius!
My edition of "Straight, No Chaser", by Columbia Records 1967 has the following songs:
1) Straight, No Chaser 2) Pannomica 3) Trinkle, Tinkle 4) Ugly Beauty (take 2) 5) Ugly Beauty 6) Epistrophy 7) Evidence 8) I Meant You 9) Luluīs back In Town 10) Donīt Blame Me 11) Sweetheart Of All My Dreams 12) Round Midnight 13) Straight, No Chaser (take 2).
Btw. This album by Thelonious Monk was remastered by Sony Music 1998.
Thanks for the info on Pat Martino, I did not know this. I have three albums with Pat Martino: "All Sides Now" - "Footprints" and "The Maker".

Miles Davis on his album "Bagīs Groove", Prestige Records 1954, rereleased by Fantasy Records 1987, remast. 1992.
MD (trumpet), Sonny Rollins (tenor saxophone), Thelonius Monk or Horace Silver (piano), Milt Jackson (vibes), Percy Heath (double bass) and Kenny Clarke (drums).
The sound was not good in those mono-days back in the 1950īs, when anyone could walk in a recording studio and have you music cut on a single in no time. But the sound is not the important theme here, the music is and of course one of the very early musical connections between Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins. A meeting they both profitted from.
