I had to make a decision––so for TODAY I decided on

Kenny Wheeler, „Music For Large And Small Ensemble“

Marc Johnson (with Bill Frisell & John Scofield), „Bass Desires“

But now I’ve just listened to a bit of „Sol do Meio Dia“ by Egberto Gismonti––which I haven’t listened to for years its so wonderful but I can’t decide on which album of his is the best.
