  1. LF - Dale Fielder cd’s

    The shipping charge is $6 for a second CD. If you think of it as $16 per disc with a flat shipping rate of $4, it feels better. It is one of my favorite tribute albums. The song selection focuses on less obvious Shorter tunes matched with strong Fielder originals. Fielder also has a good band with him (featuring Jane Getz on piano).

    Yeah, but ~$20 for a CD including shipping is what you'll often pay on Bandcamp, even if the breakdown would usually be something like $15 plus shipping. I recommend his Wayne Shorter tribute and The Hipster.

    Lots of great playing here by well-known and lesser-known players alike. I never regretted a Mosaic Single purchase.

    Don Cherry's Art Deco led me here. This has to be some essential Cedar Walton (with longtime colleagues David Williams and Billy Higgins) joining him. I'm glad that Art Deco brought Clay some attention in his final years.

    I hope that he had a happy birthday. His daughter posted an update yesterday saying that he is still struggling financially in addition to having failing eyesight. Here is a link to the fundraiser: https://www.gofundme.com/f/r85ysv-assistance-for-jazz-tenor-sax-nonagenarian.

    I saw no reason to not listen to more Don Cherry today.

    I have it lucky. My mailman is a super nice guy and my toddler likes to shadow him as he makes his way to our house. In a year of isolation, a friendly face goes a long way.

    After finally getting around to Art Deco a few days ago after it had sat for 2 or 3 years in a pile waiting to be heard, I'm on a Cherry run today. I've listened to Art Deco, Symphony for Improvisers, Brown Rice and now this. I also spun Ornette's To Whom Who Keeps a Record and Charlie Haden's The Montreal Tapes, Vol. 2. Complete Communion and Jim Pepper's Comin' and Goin' have also seen play. While having a large collection means that albums can be neglected, it also makes binges possible.
