  1. Nonagenarian Jazz Musicians

    Argh. I posted for the first time in almost a year to remind people that Richard Davis is still around, only to see Jim joke about a nonagenarian dying. Back to lurking. Stay classy, Jim.
  2. Nonagenarian Jazz Musicians

    The great Richard Davis hasn't been mentioned.
  3. Joe Chambers - Back on Blue Note

    I listened to his Blue Note album last week and enjoyed it. Once the world returns to normal, I wouldn't be surprised if he plays in Cleveland. I'd see him.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The last track is a tribute to Earl Hines. I didn't realize it until I opened my phone to pull up Earl Hines. Now listening to: Disc 1: Solo Earl Hines
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This has to have some of my favorite Teagarden. The big surprise on this set was Billy Butterfield, who plays some hot trumpet on the sessions with Teagarden. My toddler goes nuts dancing whenever I play it for her.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I found a signed copy of this recently.
  7. Can you guess who they are?

    It has to be. Black is his signature look. Maybe Randy Brecker in the first one?
  8. Can you guess who they are?

    I'm going to say Percy Heath, Charles McPherson with Johnathan Blake behind him and Joanne Brackeen.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Speaking of Galeta and McLean, I caught Steve Davis (super nice guy!) in town and chatted with him. I mentioned Galeta and he hopped behind the piano and played some of Galeta's music.
  10. Joe Chambers - Back on Blue Note

    I also forgot about Ambrose Akinmusire. I don't believe I've heard Immanuel Wilkins. When I saw Joel Ross with Marquis Hill, he split time between vibes and piano.
  11. Joe Chambers - Back on Blue Note

    It's interesting how Blue Note is doing things. It's like they throw a bone to fans of vintage Blue Note by signing Wayne Shorter, Joe Chambers and Dr. Lonnie Smith, while pursuing neo-soul/jazz fusion with their younger artists. I guess that's about the best we can expect.
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    More of the birthday Benny, with a crack band of Dr. Eddie Henderson, Steve Davis, Mike LeDonne, Buster Williams, Carl Allen and a guest spot from Al Jarreau.
  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Some more Benny Golson, via his arrangements on Brass Shout. The reissue pairing it with The Aztec Suite is essential Art Farmer, IMO.
