    Hi all,

    I suppose I have now reached the stage where I need some Joe Pass in my collection. Preferably solo, or with a singer like Ella or Frankie. It could also be a boxset if it's really worth it.

    There is sooo much stuff available on Amazon, where shall I start ? Thanks.

    Intercontinental on MPS is really good. The Pablo Virtuoso range is good too, here’s Volume One, there are three or four IIRC (I have at least two on vinyl). Ella Fitzgerald’s Take Love Easy is good too, late in her career but she’s still on decent form and Pass accompanies very well, there have been a few fancy audiophile pressings of this one over the years, I just have the original vinyl and it is really good but quite hard to find a properly quiet one.

    - Northsea Nights w NHO Pederson

    - Take Love Easy w Ella, and possibly the follow-up "... Again". There's two or three others which mop up the other tracks from their sessions, but they'd already picked the good stuff for the first two albums

    - For Django

    - Virtuoso

    AFAIK, Ella was the only singer he recorded with...
