Great album, I have the original vinyl but would love to hear the new HD Tracks re-master.
Here's a couple of my all-time faves, both have plenty of "attitude and energy":

"Wings Over America" on HD Tracks is outstanding. Just bought that two days ago. I had the original vinyl but insanely gave it and many other vinyl albums away. McCartney and crew have spent time remastering and working with some of his older albums and are slowly rereleasing them. "McCartney", "Band on the Run", and "Ram" likewise were redone and I expect "Venus and Mars" and "Speed of Sound" to come out eventually.
Its hard to beat clean vinyl on a high end player but the 24/96 download sounds great.
#BAM Live at Bohemian Caverns, Payton’s latest release, is the first for his own imprint, BMF Records ™. Recorded at the historic Washington, D.C. club, Bohemian Caverns, on November 3, 2012, the album features a blistering set that captures Payton’s now renowned prowess on the trumpet – while simultaneously playing the Fender Rhodes piano. His genius and unmistakable originality is on wide display for this recording.
Picked up this double LP for $4 at a used record store. I don't believe either record has ever been played. Ahmad Jamal is outstanding on this live recording - faster paced and harder hitting than what he is normally known for.
Recorded live at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Montreal, Canada in 1985. This live concert was released on a 1986 double album, Live at the Montreal Jazz Festival 1985. Pianist Ahmad Jamal and his quartet (which also includes bassist James Cammack, drummer Herlin Riley, and percussionist Selden Newton) dig into three originals, an obscurity, Jack DeJohnette's "Ebony," and a trio of jazz standards (including "Footprints"). This particular group is often reminiscent of Jamal's trios of the '50s, although with more modern bass playing and some denser piano than before. ~ Scott Yanow Originally released as a 2-LP set. Personnel: Ahmad Jamal (piano); James Cammack (bass); Herlin Riley (drums); Selden Newton (percussion).
