Manuel De Sica - composer. 7. Greetings and Salutations – Greetings and Salutations is a 1975 big band jazz album recorded by the Swedish Radio Jazz Group with Thad Jones, Mel Lewis and Jon Faddis as guest bandleader, performers. The album was nominated for a 1978 Grammy award in the Best Jazz Instrumental Performance - Big Band category.

The distinctive sound of the ensemble is intact; baritonist Pepper Adams has a notable solo; Dee Dee Bridgewater takes a vocal, and the big band was still an all-star orchestra at the time. But overall, this obscure set (not yet reissued on CD), which is rounded off by a later live-in-Italy version of Thad Jones' "Little Pixie," is a lesser effort, worthwhile but not essential.

Live In Tokyo is a live recording of the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra made in Tokyo, Japan, in 1974. Live album by. Thad Jones, Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra.
