  1. Happy Birthday, Dan Gould!

    Happy birthday, Dan!
  2. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    I had all the LP's back in the day, but it's nice to become reacquainted with this music.
  3. What is your favorite hot sauce?

    My personal favorite, from Louisiana
  4. Happy Birthday Stereojack!

    Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes!
  5. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    Also saw two TV spots promoting the album this weekend during CBS Sunday Morning. How many new releases, in any genre, get this kind of hype?
  6. Stuff You've Found Inside of Used LPs

    Once while going through a pile of LP's that the customer told us had belonged to his late son, we found a small envelope of weed tucked into a gatefold cover. Unfortunately, it had lost its potency over the years.
  7. LF: Everly Brothers Recommendation(s?)

    As a lifelong Everlys fan, I have to weigh in. I bought all three Bear Family boxes as they came out, even though I had all the original LP's. The boxes include many singles and outtakes. Agreed, the Warner Brothers years are inconsistent, but there are plenty of gems throughout these two sets (the 2nd also includes the early 70's RCA sides). I agree with Felser's recommendations if you want to get your feet wet. I saw the Everlys in the 1980's and again in the 90's, and they were still outstanding.

  9. Chasing the Trane documentary release date

    I watched it on Netflix over the weekend, and overall I really liked it. Could have done without Santana, but at least we didn't have to suffer through Stanley Crouch! There were several moments that really touched me emotionally, and I was impressed with all the home movies and concert footage, some of which I hadn't seen.
  10. Happy Birthday jazztrain!

    Jeez, ya blink and another birthday rolls around! Hope it's a happy one.
  11. Robert Sunenblick RIP

    Wow! This is a shock. I can't imagine anyone willing to put out the kind of "labor of love" releases that Uptown did. I had my problems with Bob and some of his business practices, but I have nothing but admiration for his productions.
  12. Tom Rapp (1947-2018)

    The first Pearls Before Swine album (on ESP) was a favorite of mine back in 1967. Followed his musical path for the next few years. RIP.
  13. Wesla Whitfield -- sad news

    A great artist, someone who has taken the lemons offered her and made lemonade. Sad news.
  14. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Have been working my way through these three for the last few weeks in the car, one disc at a time. The small groups set is a mixed bag, but worth while for the Ruby Braff sides (including one whole unreleased date), and the Coleman Hawkins-Clark Terry date, which annotator Dick Sudhalter trashes in the notes - I STRONGLY disagree! The Shaw set is excellent, although I'm disappointed that most of the female vocals were omitted. I've known most of this music since I was in high school, and it still sounds good. Having owned most of the Ventura and Flip sides on vinyl over the years, I'm being reintroduced to this music once again. The Flip Phillips stuff holds up quite well, but I find that I'm not all that impressed with Ventura, who to me seems rather a gimmicky player with a lot of flash, not a whole lot of substance.
  15. What Are You Watching

    It seems that the evil Sharon was gradually morphed into the likable character we've come to know. Especially feeling for her in the final episodes. I agree about Rusty - can do without him and his angst-ridden boyfriend.
