  2. When you get it, and have given it a spin or three -- report back! And as long as I'm bumping this thread... For everyone else here's track #1: "Isis Unveiled" - which kicks off side 1 (which is all live). As with most of the tracks on this album, it gets incrementally more interesting as the whole thing unfolds. (Which is to say that the tenor-solo really gets going about 2-minutes into the track.) I like how the tenor player just keeps adding more heat, bit by bit, until things are a whole lot hotter than you expected a few minutes earlier. And then they slide back into the theme near the end of his solo, very gracefully. The transitions in intensity are very well thought out and executed, and land on these ears damn nicely.

  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Disc 2 - has sets by Rex Stewart, Jack Teagarden, Sandy Williams, J.C. Higginbotham, Jimmy Jones, Babe Mathews & joe thomas. In season 4 of the Netflix TV series "Bosch" there is a scene where detective Bosch, a serious jazz fan is listening to a track by the Jack Teagarden Big Eight, and comments leave that on because a Ben Webster solo is coming next. That material is on this CD.
  6. Monk - Friday the 13th

    Others artists have liked the tune. In my collection I have versions by Joe Henderson, Steve Lacy, and Steve Khan.

  12. I've been watching for this one it now finally shows as available for pre-order on their site, release date a week away: http://www.dottimerecords.com/product/ben-webster-valentines-day-1964-live/ plus $5.50 flat rate shipping worldwide, this looks to be a better source than Amazon, which has never updated the listing page for this release and has a nonsensical photo up for the item: https://www.amazon.com/Valentines-Day-1964-Live-Webster/dp/B073CSCNGT With that flat rate shipping I threw in the Joe Bushkin/Buck Clayton release discussed here: Looking forward to these two for sure.
  13. Monk - Friday the 13th

    Thelonious Monk recorded many of his original tunes numerous times. Yet there are some he recorded very rarely. One such tune is "Friday The 13th", a favorite of mine. I was surprised to find that Monk only recorded this tune 3 or 4 times. To select just one example for comparison, Monk's "Straight No Chaser" was recorded by him more than 25 times.
