  2. Keith Jarrett recommendations

    Spheres is hep and actually an excellent idea; there's much to said / heard in "old" instruments that's not present or elusive in "modern" ones. Jarrett on chamber organ and / or harmonium and / or hurdy gurdy would also be interesting. People puzzled over or derided the Gurdjieff / de Hartmann album but look how many others have explored the repertoire since I come and go with "Luminessence" but for channelling a certain sober side of the 1970s, this, Glenn Gould Hindemith Sonatas for Brass w/ members of the Philadelphia Orch will get you there

  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Georgia Gibbs: Swinging With Her Nibs
  7. What 78 are you spinning right now ?

    A bunch of Andy Kirk Decca records (1937-1945), inspired by finding a "sunburst" Kirk Decca for a buck "in the wild" today. I won't list them all, but the highlights were "Walkin' and Swingin'," "Bear Down" (for Mary Lou Williams' piano solo), "A Mellow Bit of Rhythm," and "McGhee Special" - the last one being a tour de force for young Howard McGhee, of course. These discs reminded me what a great arranger Mary Lou Williams was. There are some really imaginative things here, like the low-register saxes with tenor lead in "Mellow Bit of Rhythm" and the four saxes with trumpet lead on "Walkin' and Swingin'."

    Ornette + Joachim Kuhn/ Colors - Live from Leipzig

  25. T.S. Monk to sue beer company

    very interesting, 1st i have heard of his, TS is a good dude and i hope he wins. im actually suprised he ok'd the original deal w/ the beer label. i saw it a few years ago, and thought, oh thats funny. but i know who monk is an have his records, but for a regular person- i would say thats kind of 'characterizing' him in beer form that might not make sense to the lay person
