aphrodite - check out Art Blakey's album " 'S Make It " and Gerry Mulligan's album " At the Village Vanguard "
you might like those. i don't know if i have any feel for what you like, though.
Beat - pete fountain is one of the best, he is my favorite dixieland musician of any instrument. and Pete Fountain Day is a fantastic album! i have also never been able to find it on CD.
have you heard his album "Pete Fountain's French Quarter"? that is a great one as well. i looked on my vinyl copy, and it has some of the same lineup as Pete Fountain Day:
Godfrey Hirsch on vibes, and Jack Sperling on drums.
it differs in that Stan Wrightsman is on piano, and Morty Corb is on bass.
i have the vinyl, and i am pretty sure this one never made it to CD.
