More late May recording anniversaries

We're continuing to add songs to celebrate their recording anniversaries. Cecil McBee's Paradox is now available; it was recorded on May 29, 1980 on McCoy Tyner's album "Quartets 4X4." This was Cecil's and McCoy's first recording together; the song is well suited to McCoy's signature style.

Blue, by Marc Seales, has two anniversaries in late May. Marc played it on his album "American Songs, Vol. 2", recorded on May 26 and 27, 2012. On May 31, 2019, he performed this song in his New Stories trio, with guest Ernie Watts, at the Ballard Jazz Festival to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their 1999 album "Speakin' Out." We have three quartet condensed scores that reflect the 1999, 2012, and 2019 recordings.
