  1. Past Hour
  2. Now reading...

    Otherwise known as L'Etranger. Yes, this one also belonged to my mother. Purchase date Sep. 1961. I believe this is where the idea for The Cure's Killing an arab comes from. I think I already read it, but like 40 years ago. So I'm rereading it. That's one I've ordered from my regular bookshop as well.
  3. Dave Burrell - Lush Life (Denon) Pharoah Sanders - Moon Child (MOV) Charles Williams - Stickball Stan Getz ‎– Opus De Bop, The Savoy Sessions
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The Complete Fats Waller & his Rhythm, "Vol. 2 1934/43" King Jazz I had given my Dad all fourteen of these King Jazz volumes when I collected all the JSP volumes, and now I have these back. Great stuff. . . had a lot of fun when my Dad discovered Fats Waller.
  5. RIP Bernard Wright

    According to this article, the Dallas resident died in a car accident. https://www.dallasobserver.com/music/bernard-wright-was-a-true-legend-through-high-and-low-times-14070762 Embarrassing gaffe in the article referring to Lester Young. I heard him a couple of times sitting in with Lucky Peterson, taking over the keyboards while Lucky switched to guitar. The only person I ever heard doing this who sounded like Lucky's equal. Another time there was supposed to be a solo piano concert in a downtown church, but some sort of airline flight issue caused him to not arrive.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    ‘Syndicate’ version - with the bonus Hank Mobley 45rpm.
  7. Which Jazz box set are you grooving to right now?

    Disc 1 of this lovely set from Rhino’s Handmade series—purchase inspired by a recent discussion here on the board:
  8. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Quartetto Italiano - Mozart - String Quartet K.464 and Beethoven - String Quartet No.4, Op.18/4
  9. Hank Mobley

    By some fluke I found the ‘syndicate’ CDs with the 45rpm bonus. Most of it is taken up with speeches by Alfred Lion, Ruth Lion and RVG. Hank gets a big round of applause at the end as he goes to the stage, tells the Lou Donaldson story about which of them was the oldest on Blue Note and that was about it.
  10. Very interesting and well-written article. Thanks for sharing.
  11. Today
  12. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Weller's Prokofiev cycle is very persuasive, IMO.
  13. Hank Mobley

    so, you knew,in 1980, that Hank was at that session? did you know his song was not gonna be on the record. Did you not hear it until the CD came out years later.
  14. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Sassy for me too. "Sweets" sounds divine on this one also.
  15. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Symphony No. 8
  16. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I had forgotten Quinichette played on this album. Pulled the Clifford Brown Em Arcy box to listen to this. Thanks for the reminder.
  17. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    very pleased to stumble upon this. Wade did a fabulous Gil Scott-Heron/Brian Jackson tribute a few years ago and I've wanted to hear more from her. Ernie Watts too!
  18. What music did you buy today?

    Oh! Didn't realize. Another for the list! Very fine late-in-the-game Lester.
