    Hints:

    1. Jazz Me, Please
    2. Pre-1960
    3. Young Flowers
    4. Two dudes and a lady
    5. Very good chance it's a solo artist
    6. 3, 3, 4
    7. Not Billie Holiday

    Clues/Sleuthing:

    1. Possibly Latin Jazz and/or on Verve
    2. Regarding Hint #4 above, sleuthing courtesy of @bfly:
      • This appears to indicate solo artists on all tracks
      • RHH is almost certainly a dude, so Classics could be the lady
      • Or... maybe "Two dudes and a lady" was just a hint for one of the tracks and doesn't apply to all three? Not clear yet...
    3. Something is happening with Blue Note in 2019. Is January classics the kick-off?

    Herbie Hancock - Sunlight

    Reason: It's jazz. Case closed. :barefoot:


    Bonus Reason: more of the world needs to know about dat leisure suit

    Edit: Damnit Storf AMA hint already ruined this gag for me. Whelp, enjoy Mr. Hancock's chest hairs and medallion at least.

    That's a title that actually needs a good reissue in the US.

    A label would be great.

    Is the recent MOV reissue considered the best available reissue right now? I have a 2008 Columbia pressing that sounds fine, but this is definitely an album I would consider upgrading.

    I’d love to see Art Blakey’s Moanin’ if only for the reason that I’ve been meaning to pick it up for some time now. Are there supposed to be some 2019 BN Classic selections? (Not sure if I’m making that up or it was mentioned in an AMA.)

    I’m throwing in this guess:

    Herbie Nichols - Herbie Nichols Trio.

    It has only gained love and reverence with each passing year. Plus, Max Roach on drums, and we have seen him getting some love and reissues through VMP In the last year.

    If you want to spend $125, that will be a MOFI One Step release next year.

    This would be great.

    But ONLY with unedited versions. I don’t want a reduction that the original pressings have, and this would far and away set it apart from other editions.

    Yes please. I still can't believe this didn't get a Music Matters reissue.

    Would also love Love, Gloom, Cash, Money as I use to have a burned CD-R of it that got lost in a move.

    I'll go with Sarah Vaughan - Sarah Vaughan, because that album is amazing and features two legends (Sarah Vaughn and Clifford Brown). And all the recent reissues of it are underwhelming.

    I can always get behind some Clifford Brown.
