  1. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Two great sessions: On side one you have Roy Eldridge with Flip Phillips, really great, and I Always said that Roy Eldridge was so much ahead of his time, his Generation. He went as far as playing the strictly boppish "Ornithology" Theme on the Outing of "How High the Moon". And "Flip and Jazz" is really hot stuff. The second side is famous mostly for the participation of the great Fats Navarro, but all the others , Allen Eager, Charlie Ventura, Ralph Burns, Bill Harris, Chubby Jackson and Buddy Rich with his great solo on "Sweet Georgia Brown" are also great. I purchased this "America" LP in 1978 and still like it very much.
  2. sounds like a really exiting program. All those great musicians.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    A very interesting album, two sessions, one with Bennie Green and Sonny Rollins, Morpheus is quite a strange sounding tune, and the more easy listening set with the tenor tandem Al Cohn Zoot Sims.

    So relaxed ! And one track with Mingus on piano.....
  5. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Oh yes, this was a favourite of mine in my first years of listening to jazz as a Teenager. I was really fascinated by the title tune, one of Trane´s best ballads of the 50´s. And Garland´s solo is also great, and of Course, the great bowed solo by Paul Chambers,
  6. Dexter Gordon - Live in Chateauvallon 1978

    oh this are very good News. 1978 was a very good year for Dexter. He recorded "Manhattan Symphony", Maybe his best Columbia Album , Maybe one of his alltime best Albums and Maybe one of the best acoustic Albums of the year. I´m really Looking Forward for this, it´s a must have.
  7. RIP Stanley Crouch

    thats really sad News.
  8. "Rollins '57: Sonny Rollins Takes the Lead"

    1957 was indeed a very good year for Sonny Rollins. Recently I listened to "Way out West" from that year.
  9. Pangaea and Agartha

    The Album was visible in all the record stores in......what year it might have been…..1977? Well I wouldn´t say it got me into jazz, the Album that first got me into jazz was "Steamin´" and when I first heard Agharta shortly after that, I thought "wow, Incredible, this is the same Artist?". But it helped me to listen to everything, from 40´s bop into the Electric jazz of the 70´s . Most of the guys who helped me to get more and more into jazz were 3,4 5 years older than me and were much into free and Electric, but also had Deep respect for Charlie Parker etc...... I later purchased Panghea and Dark Magus. I like them all.
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I love this ! I first had it on the Brown Paperback doublealbum from the BN LA series, it was Griffin´s Blowin Session on the first LP, and the "Blowin In from Chicago on the second LP. The whole double Album was titled "Blowing Sessions". When I listen to the CD, I still use to listen to it together with Griffin´s "A Blowing Session". The Tenor Tandem Jordan-Gilmore is fantastic and the rhyhthm section really Cooks, those are some of the best Players of the period. And the almost forgotten Horace Silver compositon "Everywhere" is Beautiful....

    Maybe I should give this another try. I spinned it once but didn´t like it, especially the first tune. The strange Thing is, that I am familiar with a lot of 60´s Avantgarde stuff and listen to Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, Cecil Taylor, but Maybe from Larry Young I expected something else, something more like the Albums he made before for BN.
