    • Lennie Niehaus R.I.P.
      Yes indeed. Read today's Jazzwax for a comprehensive account of Niehaus' contributions to the music. https://www.jazzwax.com/
    • New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set
      You HAD to say that. Haha.  I have the earlier Mobley set but only have High Voltage and Straight No Filter from the second set.  I've been very tempted but holding off because I feel like I haven't been listening enough to the many sets that I do have.  Today while working I've been shuffling all of my Mosaic sets (I have them ripped to the computer) and realizing again how great all the music is.  I'm inching toward it . . .
    • Did Sonny Rollins rejoin Miles Davis briefly
      This may have been my source, but I honestly can't remember--and even so, this could be wrong and certainly doesn't settle the question.  From Gerald Early's 2001 book Miles Davis And American Culture (pg. 123): >>Between 1960 and 1962, Miles tried different combinations of musicians in his working band, all fine musicians and some even great.  But soon the band became like a turnstile, with players like Sonny Stitt, Hank Mobley, Sonny Rollins, George Coleman, Frank Strozier, J.J. Johnson, Jimmy Heath, Victor Feldman, Frank Butler, and Harold Mabern moving in and out of it.<< Might be one for Mike F.'s listserv.  I have to do my live show in half an hour, but I'll try to dig a little deeper on this after work this evening.  
    • Late Barry McRae Vinyl and CD Auction
      The Auction sale results are now in. No bargains on the LPs, some hefty prices on the CD bundles and some nice deals on the Mosaics ! https://bid.omegaauctions.co.uk/m/view-auctions/catalog/id/84?page=1
    • So, What Are You Listening To NOW?
      I recall Jim Pugh from way back in the days of the Thad/Mel Orch. The Rhyne is a good 'un, too.
