Fantastic compilation

I'm really enjoying this. I've always liked Wynton Kelly's piano playing with David, Coltrane, Adderley, Gillespie and the like but never owned any of his albums as a bandleader. Over ten of his albums make up this compilation, from 1958 through to 1966 so it gives you a pretty comprehensive overview of his work as a bandleader. The albums are Piano, Kelly Blue, Kelly At Midnite(though you need to buy an extra couple of tracks to complete this), Wynton Kelly, Someday My Prince Will Come, Pot Luck, It's All Right, Undiluted and Full View. Great band line ups and lots of beautiful playing here. Great value for money.
I've put the tracks into playlists to reproduce the running order of the original albums and find they work even better that way.
