    How the squandered 7-8 top chances in H1 is beyond belief ....
  4. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Good first half for England. Impressive attacking but defence looks a bit uncertain. Need to convert some of these chances, obviously
  5. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Who "guys"?

  7. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    You guys must be happy with the start so far
  8. I've found the liner notes, compared to many previous Mosaic sets, to be a real hash at times; Loren Schoenberg is not at all the top of his game IMO (at times it's like he SELLING the set to us; hey, we've already bought it), and there are some semi-pointless or worse contributions from other writers. Thanks be, Dan Morgenstern remains calm and himself.

  14. BFT 171 Discussion Thread

    Phil Woods is playing clarinet on track 8. Track 9 is from an old favorite. I attended a prerelease concert featuring most of the music from this CD. Keep your thinking cap on for the rest of the tracks.

    Is that Phil Woods on clarinet on Track 8? I hear some of his distinctive sound. I do not know who the guitarist is, or which album this is. I like it and want to find out. I love Track 9. It features very interesting writing and great playing, with soulful feeling. I love the baritone saxophonist's playing. I am trying to count how many instruments--it seems to be either eight, nine or ten. I do not know who this is, but I want to get this album. Sometimes when there is writing this unique and interesting, there is no soulful feeling, but this track has it all. Track 10 is weird. Who would play that combination of keyboards? The organ sounding keyboard has an unusual sound. For a few seconds toward the beginning I thought it could be Sun Ra, because I thought I heard his sound in the left hand on the piano. He would have definitely experimented with unusual sounds on multiple keyboards. But as the track progressed I could tell it was not him. The rhythmic feeling is too stiff to be Sun Ra. I have no idea who this is. It is most intriguing. Track 11 sounds like something I should definitely know, and probably have in my collection. I just can't place it at all.
  16. Also expands the Prez on clarinet discograpahy.
  17. Couldn't agree more. The notes point out how important this set is for expanding Hershel Evans's discography. His version of "Star Dust" on disc one is really lovely. gregmo
  18. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Disc 1 - The Small-Group Sides I think Vol. 1 is just a shade better. But I'm with you: Vol. 2 is no collection of barrel-scrapings. Both volumes are well worth hearing.
  19. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Picked up this two-LP 1977 set: https://www.amazon.com/Ellington-Forever-Vol-Kenny-Burrell/dp/B000000XHF/ref=sr_1_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1529336962&sr=1-2&keywords=burrell+ellington at an estate sale the other day for $2 and have been pleasantly surprised. Nice mix of players (Joe Henderson, Jimmy Smith, Jerome Richardson, Snooky Young, Thad Jones, Gary Bartz, Quentin Jackson, Nat Adderley, Philly Joe, Jimmy Jones, Roland Hanna, et al.) in shifting groups of various sizes, and everyone (Burrell included) seems relaxed and very engaged -- it's like a party where all involved are happy they've been invited and are having a good time. Smith's unusually thoughtful linear solo on "A Train," for example, is a gem, and Hanna's comping and solo work are superb. Vol. 1 (recorded several months before) is said to be even better; I've ordered it. Only drawback is Fantasy's somewhat claustrophobic mid-'70s studio sound, but the ear adjusts.
