  1. Sonny Stitt and Joe Pass?

    Did Sonny Stitt and Joe Pass ever record together? If so, on what album(s)?
  2. Harold Rubin (1932-2020)

    Clarinetist Harold Rubin died on April 1st at the age of 87. I only know him from pianist Alon Nechushtan's excellent Ritual Fire (with Ken Filiano and Bob Meyer), an album many here would enjoy. Thank you for the music, Mr. Rubin, and rest in peace.
  3. Bill Withers, R.I.P.

    He was a storyteller with so much soul! Thank you for the music, Mr. Withers, and rest in peace.
  4. What music did you buy today?

    Peter Tomlinson - Momentum, with Dick Oatts, Anthony Cox and Jimmy Cobb: Amazon must've been clearing off some shelves, because I paid $2.69 after tax. I have never heard Tomlinson, but that band at that price was a no-brainer.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Disc 8 (Jess Stacy, Joe Sullivan and Mel Powell)
  6. I haven't been ordering from Amazon much. I ordered coffee on Monday and chose the 'no rush' shipping because I still had some left. I expected it next week and it arrived in three days. The 'no rush' digital reward has been bumped up to $3 from $1, incidentally, so waiting an extra two days paid off.
  7. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    I have a friend with 3 small children who isn't taking social distancing seriously. He attended a funeral that required a drive of 800+ miles and was attended by a large extended family. Knowing his kids, he certainly stopped a million times along the way there and back. He then came home and recorded a podcast in person with a friend, which could have been recorded differently. After reading an article about how a large funeral in Georgia touched off a number of infections and deaths, I hope that he and his family didn't contract the virus by being careless.
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The Konitz sessions with Jimmy Rowles, Leroy Vinnegar and Shelly Manne.
  9. Bucky Pizzarelli R.I.P.

    I saw Bucky Pizzarelli twice, once with Aaron Weinstein and once with Ed Laub. I'll always remember the radiant smile he had on his face as he gleefully strummed away. He swung so hard! It was touching to hear John Pizzarelli talk so warmly about his father during a blindfold test last year. Thank you for the music, Mr. Pizzarelli, and rest in peace.
  10. Ellis Marsalis R.I.P. (COVID-19 victim)

    With all of the passion on both sides of the Wynton debate, I think that Ellis has been lost in the shuffle a bit. That is a shame. From what I've heard, he was an elegant pianist with touch to spare. Thank you for the music, Mr. Marsalis, and rest in peace.
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    After listening to the Marsh album, I'm now on to the Konitz/Marsh material. With all of the awful news, I needed some pure melody. The interplay between Konitz and company brings back fond memories of the times I've seen Konitz. I hope he is safely riding this out.
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Today's listening so far: Gary Thomas - While the Gate Is Open The Konitz live set from the Midway Lounge Joe Newman - At Count Basie's
  13. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    In my opinion, not recording James Spaulding as a leader was a huge missed opportunity for Blue Note.
  14. RIP Steve Ellington

    I stand corrected and deleted my comment. That was sloppy on my part.
