  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Disc 3: I keep pulling up album covers from Discogs and finding bargains. Someone is selling this for $45. That's a deal. It's a good opportunity to hear Teagarden with his underrated working group at length. I really like Don Goldie, whose tone was outstanding.

    I pulled out this one and will bring out Facing You soon: Recorded while Jarrett was battling with CFS. It was a melancholy listen for a few reasons. It made me think of Gary Peacock's passing and Jarrett's current health issues. The mood took me to thinking about the friend who was with me the only time I saw Jarrett or Peacock at the penultimate Standards Trio show. She has since ghosted me. On to closing the night on a happier note: Disc 3: I forgot that Art Taylor was on the quartet session with Hank Jones and Kenny Burrell. I don't know if I have anything else with Taylor and Jones together.

    Disc 3: Someone has this on Discogs for $30. I paid $40 last year and that was a bargain.
  4. Happy 95th Birthday, Terry Gibbs!

    96! I hope he had a good birthday. I'll spin some of his music later.

    Disc 2. I asked my daughter what she wanted to listen to and she said Duke. Afro-Bossa!

    I am winding up a crappy day with a ray of Ornette sunshine.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I am thinking of Keith Jarrett after reading the sad NYT story. This is still probably my favorite Standards Trio album and the first one I heard.
  8. With Gary Peacock's passing, I found myself listening to most of my Standards Trio albums and being thankful I saw their penultimate concert. I still hoped (and hope!) to see Keith Jarrett again one day. I think of musicians like Frank Foster, Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Eberhard Weber (to name a few) who have been silenced by strokes. Here's wishing Jarrett the best.

    I think this is only my second time listening to this. I am buying less and diving deeper into my collection.

    The likely sketchy disc has 4 tracks not on the DVD, including a Stan Getz guest spot. It is prime Griffin, so the 4 bonus tracks are a welcome addition.

    Disc 2: This set has become one of my favorite Mosaics.

    My second listen since buying it last year. I forgot the personnel and was not surprised when I found out that Jack Walrath was the one playing some damn good trumpet. I'll be playing this one more for sure.
