It remind me I must get the Live at the Blackhawk CD's out again.

Must say that none of Jimmy's later recordings have ever had a cymbal sound anywhere near as good as those Davis, Wes Montgomery, or Wynyon Kelly etc recordings. I'm biased though.
You are right. I can't think Jimmy would be happy with those newer cymbals. My brother is friends with Jimmy and he had an 18" of Jimmy's an Istanbul that he let him borrow and it was super washy.
A company should make a cymbal line just for him.
