  1. Quite correct. A fun story accopanies the reveal on this one. You may know the tune, but unlikely the version. My guess is you DO know all the players. Indeed. He is not. Negative, but I'm glad it's got your mind working. This one has a great story to it. It's an album I was slow to warm up to, but it always captures my attention. A bit outside of my normal sphere. Mmmm... could be.... I will be shocked if both are not true. Agreed. You likely know some of the personnel. Was listening to another cut off this album today and it knocked me out. Perhaps I chose poorly. I will be surprised and impressed if you get this one. Glad you enjoyed, sir! Not Hutch. Definitely a name I have seen in these parts, though. The reaction is no surprise. A terrific band with terrific personnel. Unfortunately, a recording slightly off the radar. Smiling Billy is correct (and now Felser will nail it). Not Jack, but I'm sure he is an open influence. Not the guitarist's date. I can see why your ears would take you there. I think Jimmy gets less credit for his influence on the modern style. A lot of guys, I would say, have him as an influence-once-removed; he influenced someone they consider a direct influence. I mean, I WANT to... but that takes a lot of other options for a test out of play if you're trying to create a cohesive listening experience. The last track has been a pleasant discovery for me. Actually, true of 10-12.
  2. Not Burton (though I'd LOVE to have included some of his stuff -- THE guy of his generation of tenors, IMHO). I see where the instrumentation on #4 would lead you down a Shaw path, but I don't hear the trumpet player from that side of the coin -- definitely more out of the Freddie side.
  3. Correct tune on track 3, and you are correct that it is not Mingus. I'm wondering what you're wondering. I hear what you're hearing, and it's a good, on-point analysis. You are correct that this is someone lesser known, at least lesser known than Freddie.

    Not chancing that I'll be able to get to this later -- had a little time tonight. Don't usually sleuth but had to on a couple and had a moment. Track 01 - Not sure who we are listening to, but accent sounds French (thought it was fake at first). Thought I heard S’wonderful before Time After Time started. Busy fingers, but I’m not sold. Okay, so we’re full on medley, but I can’t give you this song. Oh, I Get a Kick Out Of You. Tea For Two. Track 02 - Sounds like a Harold Land head, but then the tenor voice sounded like Rouse on the head. Now that we’re into the improv, no idea, but it’s neither of those guys. Good ideas, but that tone doesn’t click with me. Sound of the recording reminds me of a later Don Byas record I have, but this doesn’t have the “it” that that has. Sounds like a modern recording going for that sound to me. Don’t recognize the trumpet at all. I like the piano best of the rhythm section. Drummer is kind of bugging me with his fidgeting. Nothing wrong with it, but I’m not feeling like I’d go back to it. Track 03 - Wind bass. Doesn’t seem in full agreement with the piano, though. Could be early Jackie, but I think it’s someone aiming for Jackie. These drums probably fidget just as much as the last cut, but it totally works here. Hmmm… Bill Hardman for sure. Wait a second. That’s Mal Waldron’s left-hand, so that has to be Ray Draper. It IS J-Mac! A little checking the collection and it’s track 1 from this. Man, I love Mal Waldron! Track 04 - Seven Steps To Heaven, but by whom? Nylon-string guitar. Not sure who it is. It’s busy, but it works, particularly the bass. No guess. Track 05 - It Had to be Who? Not digging the vocalist. French horn? Cut misses for me. Track 06 - I want to say Zoot, but recording sounds too new. Also the guitarist is very quote happy. Not Zoot. Good player, but I’m missing the story. Duet breakdown is cool. Track 07 - Well, it’s not by the composer, but this is from The Queen’s Suite. Sunset and the Mockingbird. Glad to hear this song covered, but man… the original is just SO incredible. These are not people I know. Track 08 - Harold Arlen tune? Uh! No. Frank Loesser. If I Were A Bell. Flyin’ vibes! Ah! Tommy Flanagan for sure! That left-hand is unmistakeable (almost as much as Waldron). Okay, sleuthing occurred — tried to think of vibists in my collection who worked with Tommy. It’s from this. Track 09 - Recognize the tune, but can’t name it. I don’t know the tenor. Some Marsh-like feel in there, but no way. More recent recording. It’s just not clicking for me. Obviously a helluva player, but I’m not feeling… “it”. Track 10 - Different sounding guitar (steel body?). Darn That Dream. And a second guitar. Second sounds like nylon-string to me. That tells me one thing for sure: I have no idea who this is. Appreciate the general, laid-back feel, though. Track 11 - Bird tune… Segment. Beyond Daryl Harper, I won’t even hazard a guess at most clarinet players. However, I do know Ed Bickert, and the association makes me think Terry Clarke (perhaps a Concord recording?). So, I’m going to hazard a guess: Ken Peplowski. Track 12 - Goodbye Porkpie Hat. Niiiiiice bari. I can name everybody it ISN’T! Loses me a bit as we move into the improv. Too choppy, not enough story. Like the sound, but disagree with the ideas. Nothing wrong with it, just a matter of preference. Porkpie in 3? Interesting. Always thought if you sped the tune up you’d have a bitchin’ Blakey tune. Track 13 - I *have* Met Miss Jones. She was NOT a Blackbird. Two bitchin’ musicians for sure. Alto sounds a bit more out of the later in-the-tradition guys than I’m familiar with. Perhaps Herb Geller? Time is pretty impressive. Not sure on the pianist. I hear the accomplishment, but I also hear some strange ideas. Track 14 - Creole Love Call. Digging this. About 2:45, it occurs to me who the alto is — gotta be Lee Konitz. I don’t have this, but I sleuthed and this explains why I like it — LOVE the ‘bone! It’s from this. Track 15 - I’m in. I’m ALL in. Can’t tell if this is one piano, or a looped piano. My first thought was Ibrahim, but it’s way too agressive. I’m diggin’ it, though. Going with looped. It's cool, but doesn't quite swing. Some neat stuff in here!

  8. The head to B. Harper's "Capra Black" - crazy!!

    I have a chart for Croquet Ballet (that blew my mind, and showed how bad my transcription sucked!). I've learned Priestess, but never wrote it out. Another great tune. That guy has magic when he writes.
  9. Songs you DO want requested

    Love this answer, but I'll be more specific: There's a Small Hotel, Soon, Isn't It Romantic Also, Wives and Lovers, anything by Billy Harper, anything by Pharoah Sanders... basically, please just give me a hip audience. (Recently ended a set with Pharoah's Greetings To Idris, and as we were breaking down, sound guy put on a live recording of You Gotta Have Freedom that I was not familiar with. That's a good night.

    Yeah, I'm 64, and go through frequent bouts of "I used to know that..." such as with the great Paul Horn cut on #5, sports knowledge, history, passwords, names of people I see in hallways at work (very large company and I've been here 38 years) all sorts of things. A friend recently gave me input from his doctor: Forgetting your keys is not Alzheimer's. Forgetting what the keys are for? Might be time to call somebody.
  12. BFT 182 link and discussion

    Very listenable BFT. Thanks! Track 01 - When Did You Leave Heaven? But who by? A touch of Hartman, a touch of Eckstine, but it’s neither. Track 02 - You Don’t Know What Love Is on what sounds like an upright piano. Not someone I’m familiar with (at least not solo). Can’t decide if I like this or not. Track 03 - Like the feel of this. Almost childlike, but a groove all the same. Needle drop. I want him to play something that makes me commit to Jug… or play a Yusef lick so I commit that way. But he just won’t. I’ll commit to Jug and be wrong. I want a WHOLE lot more of this. Not up on my nylon-string guitarists. Oooo… tasty piano. Maybe Hugh Lawson? Track 04 - Minimalist composition. :D. Last tune made something out of nothing. This one seems to be trying to make too much out of nothing. I don’t know the players. Track 05 - More needle drop. Ah! Yes! I was going to say something from Checkmate, but there’s Paul Horn. Mr. Bond. SUCH a cool tune. I believe it’s the version from this. I think this was in a BFT not too long ago and I found myself getting very into Paul Horn afterward. This is a great track. Track 06 - Vocalist is very familiar. I’m thinking maybe someone I’m more familiar with in the pop realm? No. Maybe Abbey Lincoln? Tune “Something To Remember You By”. Track 07 - Love the vibes. A bit of Buddy Tate in the tenor, but not him. Very nice. Track 08 - Gee Baby, Ain’t I Confused Because It’s Not Who I Thought It was (The Three Sounds). Nothing earth shattering or new here, just a good cover of a classic tune. Track 09 - No idea. Doesn’t really click for me, but it fits into the program. After perusing the thread -- SHAME ON ME!!!! Gotta stop listening on the laptop speakers. Mising Curtis Amy is unforgiveable. Missing Bean and Bags is sacrilege. I suck so bad I shouldn't even call myself a fan.
  13. We have had some requests for a written directions for preparing the Blindfold Tests. Setting up a blindfold test: Choose your songs, and rip them to MP3 or record them to a CD-R. CD-R: This will automatically strip the song info and is the easiest way. Then mail the disc (I will provide my mailing address on request via a private message). MP3: Please strip the song info (metadata) so the songs are not identifiable to the listener. You can do this in most MP3 management programs (iTunes), or you can use a tag stripper (that’s the name of the program). I check them before I share them, but if you strip them first, I get to take the test. If you don’t, I can’t. Please name the tracks in the following manner: Track01.mp3, Track02.mp3, etc. No spaces, and zeroes before numbers 1-9. This is so they will appear in the correct order in the online player. If you don’t do this, I have to rename the files or the test doesn’t play in the correct order. It sounds like a small thing, but it is actually quiet time consuming. Getting me your MP3 files. There is one acceptable method. If it’s one you’re not comfortable with, you will need to burn me a disc. Files can be uploaded directly to my server using an FTP program (Filezilla, Cyberduck, etc.). Filezilla is open source with no crap involved (it’s a save download) directly from Mozzilla. I get it if you don’t want to have to download something (really, I do), but you will then need to burn a disc and send via mail. I’m happy to host the tests, but I can’t do it as a part-time job, so these are the only acceptable methods of transferring the test moving forward. Thank you for understanding.
  14. BFT 181 link and discussion

    Well, shoot! I wanted to guess Bean on Track 1, but it seemed like an easy out guess. I was thinking Elvin with Yusef, but it just didn't make any sense to me. That's what I get for playing it cautious.
  15. BFT 181 link and discussion

    Apologies -- meant to get to this on stacation last week, but just didn't have time. A lot here I have no clue on, but all worth a listen. Can't explain the weird formatting -- chromebook copies the background from the Sticky Note program and fouls up the formatting. Track 01 - Tenor Madness, but by the sounds, predating that title. An older bari who plays exactly the style I do not like on the instrument. First trumpeter lacks the facility for the range in which he is playing, to my ear. Second presents a more thoughtful statement. No clue on the rhythm section. Not sure on the alto. Maybe VERY early Sonny Criss. Big, bruising tenor that I cannot identify. Track 02 - No idea, no guesses. Track 03 - Early on I thought I heard shades of Rob Brown in the alto, but it's not him. They were listening, I'll say that. Track 04 - Not a style I listen to much, though it's in the collection. This cooks. Could be Bechet. Track 05 - Yusef. Not sure what the recording is, but that's gotta be the big man. Track 06 - No idea. Someone I'm not familiar with. Seems like a more classically oriented Noah Howard. Track 07 - Very much in the KC style but no realistic guess as to the leader. My mind hears Basie, but I know I'm wrong. Track 08 - Afro Blue. Has the air of an Allman Brothers show. No idea who it is. Track 09 - No idea. Growly, bluesy alto. Track 10 - No idea. Track 11 - Good ol' church Jazz. Me likey. In the style of Phineas, but not him. Snappy drums, but the piano doesn't maintain interest as it goes on. Track 12 - One way out, couldn't fathom who by. A fun ride.
  16. BFT 180 link and discussion

    Shut the **** up! Braden was a total guess!
  17. BFT 180 link and discussion

    Curses! I'm going to say Tenor 1 on track two is Braden and tenor three is Josh Redman.
  18. BFT 180 link and discussion

    Don't think I nailed anything, but here's what I DID come up with: Track 01 - Broadway. Don’t think I know the tenor. Thinking it’s a regional guy. Really solid player, time skips at times. Of the Bergonzi generation by the sounds. The second guy is David Murray. Unmistakeable. Guy is a beast. Third guy has chops but also feel. Maybe Josh Redman? Has the history of the horn like that, but also seems very much in control, even when he’s not (a Redman trait). That’s Big George (fourth guy). This is more recent, but Big George is Big George. John Hicks on piano. I’m going to say mid-90s. A fun ride. Track 02 - Intriguing track. I like the languid groove. Some of the improvs are less inspiring to me. That choppy, 70s Wayne Shorter approach. He did it and everybody afterward felt they had to but nobody’s done it as well. This could be later Wayne. It makes me want to listen to Sun Ra and hear Gilmore do what this makes me want to hear. Track 03 - Not sure who this is. Quite sure of the list of who it isn’t. What happened to all these guys? Man, I would LOVE to go hear somebody play like this, today. Track 04 - Huh… not really the spot for a repeated A Love Supreme quote, but hey, that’s just me. Okay, that reaffirms my initial thought — James Carter on sopranino. I assume this is James’ organ trio (Gerard Gibbs, Dr. Professor Leonard King), but not sure who the guitarist is. If James could just forget he is James for a few minutes, he would be scary. I mean, he IS scary, but… I mean, it’s amazing what he can do with a saxophone, but you don’t need to show me ALL of it on EVERY track. Yes, that is Gerard, so I’ll go ahead and double down that it’s also Leonard King. Track 05 - Not sure, but love the groove. Love that Bari sound. BALLSY Bari sound. Of the Carter generation, but more controlled than JC. Also, somebody owes Eddie Harris some royalties. Hummy keyboardist doesn’t excite me. Sounds like Jeff Coffin on tenor to me, but I wouldn’t expect him to essentially layout on a cut like this. Track 06 - Huh. Heard Big George earlier, and he was the first guy I ever heard play this (yes, I heard his version before Newk’s; likely not true, but when I heard it, I wasn’t awake to the music, yet). Not sure of the tenor, other than I’ve heard him. Okay, there’s James, again. Could the tenor maybe be Don Braden? Track 07 - Sounds like Cedar Walton to me at first. And by 52 seconds I’ve talked myself out of that. Had hopes for the way this started, but — and I think it’s the bass — it’s just not firing. Actually liking the pianist, but my ear wants a nice, loping, Connie Kaye feel coming from a trap kit. This needs that. Yeah, loving the pianist at 2:12. Great time, but this just calls for that ringing ride cymbal. Bassist seems to be taking a nap. He’s playing everything an octave higher than I want. I was leaning George Mraz, but the sound is wrong. Walton/Mraz was my first thought in the beginning. Like to hear some more of this record. NHOP on bass? I could be convinced to go back to Walton at 6:40. I’m going to go with Walton/NHOP. Final guess, moving on. Track 08 - Don’t care for that bass line. Again, like the piano. Stevie Wonder tune. Forget the name. Could be a bunch of peeps. I mean… there’s times I want to go with my standard BFT guess of Gene Harris… Track 09 - Respectable take on I’ll Remember April, but I don’t know who it is. Track 10 - Loving the pianist on this one, too. This whole track works. Always loved the song. Just before the 3 minute mark, really sounded like Tommy Flanagan, but on the whole, seems flashier. Thanks for the listen!

    Repeatedly victimized by my upbringing and limited exposure to the current state of things with my frequent comments about "this guy". You'd think Erica Lindsay would have taught me my lesson.
  20. BFT 179 Link and Discussion

    Good listen, Bill! Oddly, it just worked out that my wife came home between tracks 6 and 7 so I took a break. It seems like the test shifts at that point. Here's my expanded thoughts, such as they are: Track 01 - Rhodesie. Early on, I wasn't feeling this, but when it broke into that Woody-Shaw-Love-Dance groove, I was in . In spite of the bass. I am ashamed of this, but this reminds me of a Herb Alpert tune that was on pop radio when I was going up (soundtrack to the infamous Luke-and-Laura rape scene on General Hospital). Ah, yes... that era when playing a soprano did not require one to play in tune [OUCH!]. That's a shame, because that reedman takes a giant dump on this groove. I would be critical of the tenor player, but he takes exactly the approach I would, and I don't wish to be a hypocrite. Track 02 - Strange. Like, you know, meeting someone you don't know in a really nice place. Guitarist had that Ben Monder thing going, but is clearly a predecessor, so I shouldn't say it that way. Love the tenor. Has a touch of Dexter, but is a modern player. Early on I'm leaning Chico Freeman, but may be a cut above that. Man, I love this. Taking a tune that, well... it is what it is... and doing something unique with it. This is perfect. Not Chico, but I'm in the right neighborhood. All over this. Must have. Track 03 - Man! Same vibe. Dex-ish, modern player. Has less of the nostalgia of the previous cut, but still very much working. Right up until the harp... I mean... sort of works, but I would have preferred it to stay where it was going. Synth strings later are a killer, but I still like the cut. Why do I not know this player? Track 04 - Oh! I thought for sure this was going to be Fela's Zombie. Isn't, but has the right feel. In fact, probably a tad more musical than Fela. What a great groove! Track 05 - Has a mid-70s Don Pullen feel (not him -- nowhere near that aggressive). Maybe even a Pharoah feel to the melody. Could be Joe Bonner. In fact, doubling down on Joe Bonner. Head borrows a bit from Wayne Shorter's Yes Or No. Again, has that Chico vibe. This guy has a bit more of Pharoah in him in than Chico. Sort of like Chico towards George Adams, but with more shedding chops. Could actually be Chico -- got that... that thing. Could actually be Dannie Richmond on drums -- has that frenetic thing he taps into. Hints of John Hicks on piano, but not him. Maybe Michael Cochrane? Track 06 - Beastly, post-Coltrane tenor. Not Wendell Harrison, but in that neighborhood. Damn it, Bill! You're going to cost me money! That is one manly sounding tenor! Almost an Ed Blackwell sound to the toms, but the rhythm is wrong. Digging the tenor, but the drummer I am not sold on. Maybe Franklin Kiermeyer? Wants to be Elvin, but too much Buddy Rich in there. He seems to be holding the tenor back, to my ear. I'd still buy this in a heartbeat -- tenor is a beast! Track 07 - Another Rhodesie cut. This one seems like early math-Jazz to me. Seems to lack the groove of the other cuts. Gets a little cute with the middle-eastern themes for me. Track 08 - This one is missing... for the same reason as the last cut, only more so. A lot of the music in my area is in this vein, and I'm just not hearing it. Very much out of that Bill Bruford/Brian Blade school. Track 09 - I like the version. On something like this, I'm less bothered by the hybrid feel. I'm gonna guess Kamasi, because I *almost* like it. Track 10 - Has a Zappa feel to me. Yeah, I'm pretty confident -- that's Frank being very controlled on the guitar. Thanks for the ear candy!
  21. BFT 178 Link and Discussion

    Finally got around to this. A lot of nice stuff in here (even that last cut). Track 01 - Jump For Joy, but by whom? Not an alto I recognize. In fact, sounds more like a tenor player playing alto. Phrasing seems to be out of a similar school to Plas Johnson. I'm calling this one not Gene (which means I'll be wrong). Not sure it's one I'd spin often, but if it came on somewhere, I'd be happy it did. Track 02 - Jumpin' With Symphony Sid. Later recording. As it goes on, I'm more convinced it's a more recent player. Doesn't seem to have that pure swing feel (definitely has some signs of the post-Coltrane influence). Something doesn't quite gel. I think it's the time. Drums are a bit... not stiff, but they just seem to lack natural swing. Tenor... can't put my finger on it. It's more of a modern sound, and it doesn't completely fit what he's playing. Again, I'm not sold, but if it came on the radio, I'd probably be into it. Ah! A clue! It's live. That could explain some of what I'm hearing. The audience doesn't seem too engaged, and that's the feel I'm getting. Organ is fine, but man, those drums... just not doing it for me. Tenor is clicking more second time around. I do not care for the drummer. Track 03 - This already has a better feel. Even though the keys are angular, the drummer is firing and it's clicking. Hummy pianist. I should know the song, but not quite placing it. Another more modern player, but this one is clicking. More out of, say, a George Coleman era (perhaps a shade later?). The time is smack on for this whole band. For my ears, this is about the fastest tempo I need (better than 99% of the time). It's in the pocket, but right at the opening. Swings, flows -- diggin' it. Sadly, not a friggin' clue who it might be. Weird guess on the drums: Idris Muhammad? Track 04 - Man, this is some jive! Of the samba variety, that is. Wait. That "ah, yeeaaah!" certainly sounds like a familiar voice. I don't recognize these people. I like the tenor -- not as much as the previous cut -- but I do like this. A bit busy, and perhaps not quite as spot on in terms of the time, but still a good ride. Don't care for the way that tenor is mic'd (splitting hairs, I know). Track 05 - I like where it's aiming, there's nothing "wrong" with it, but it just isn't resonating. I appreciate the second-line feel, and like the trumpet player's phrasing, but the whole only seems to add up to the sum of the parts. Track 06 - Tune seems familiar, but can't place it. This trumpeter is a survivor. The whole date has that feel. In fact, seems a bit older (early 80s?), but the players seem to be "of a certain age." It's real and it shows. The style strikes me as Ruby Braff (which is a regular guess of mine, but that's what I'm hearing). Track 07 - Okay, calling this Gene. Can't place the tenor. Seems like a hybrid between Harold Ashby and Buddy Tate, but not enough like either guy. Ballsy, but perhaps a second tier guy? Nice quote of Organ Grinder Swing there at the end. Oh, and obviously, Bye, Bye Blackbird. Track 08 - Easy Living. Another survivor (it's in the vibrato). An almost Marsh-like quality to the tenor. It's not Christlieb, this guy is older than that. This is just a classic ballad, perfectly executed. Very nice. Track 09 - Summertime, nicely done. Thinking a more modern band. A very tasteful rendition. Trombone, especially, staying within himself. I can name all the guys I'm sure it ain't, but otherwise, I got nothin'. Track 10 - And more of that warm weather. Sure has that Gene sound, but I'm going NOT Gene! I accept your challenge, sir! But, boy... I'm doubting the absolute f*** out of that. Yeah... I'm caving. Gene. What's not to love about this? Man, I thought sure that breathy tenor was Ben, but... damnit... I'm bouncing back and forth. It ain't, but man, he's got it. Harold Ashby on a great day? Man, I'll take a LOT more of this! Track 11 - Ah! I'm working backward because I lost a track. Apparently, I should know this tune. I'm saying NOT Gene on this one (reversing what I originally said about the next. Track 12 - Not Gene, and sticking to my damned guns, this time. I love it, though. Aaaaaand, changing my mind -- Gene. Track 13 - There we go! Bolivia, but not a version I'm familiar with. GREAT tune! CEDAR! Not Cedar, but a very nice recording. Funny, I have a few covers of this, and all are excellent. MAN! That guy wrote some GREAT tunes! Arrangement isn't really getting me in any place special, but it's not a negative, either. Could this be a later Curtis Fuller date? Not feeling the drummer (on the breaks, especially), but that bassist is killin' it. Track 14 - More second line. Sure sounds like Kenny Garrett to me. Yeah, sure of that one. I like him, but man, I really liked him when he first arrived -- very hungry. He's more polished now, but the hunger is not the same. Tenor player is too lick happy. Could even be Grover (if not, certainly has listened to a LOT of Grover), but just doesn't... swing. That out-chorus sounds like they're not in the same room to me; just doesn't mesh. Track 15 - Another later tenor. Very accomplished chops guy. Not someone I'm familiar with. Also out of that trilly, smooth school. That B section of of the head he manages to sound just like Pharoah at times (a good thing). I do not know this record. Not a thing wrong with it, just doesn't click for me. Live, it'd be a fun ride, though. Oddly, there is a band here in the NH area that plays this feel really well. Track 16 - I like the feel, a lot. Guitar solo is a chorus too long. No, it's TWO choruses too long. Maybe three [enough, already!]. Track 17 - Thought I had a virus window pop-up in the background from YouPorn. Hit stop and realized I was in the clear. My wife IS a little curious (glad I didn't listen to this at work!). Not sure what this is, but sure would like to hear the music minus the... other (or are they just sharing an ice cream sundae?). Gene? Jesus Christ! What the hell is track 17 and. who the hell IS the show off?!? Hell, *I* arrived four minutes ago!

    No doubt in my mind you've have nailed The House On Maple Street. Awesome story! I feel like there is no much I need to learn about all the people who participate here. Gotta figure out this retirement plan so I can get TO that!

    Per the other discussion, it's also worth noting that I had encouraged Webb City to give this test a listen. He had a rough month at work and had forgotten about it until I messaged him on a different issue. He sent me his comments, but I'll encourage him to post them to the thread.
