  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I also love it very much. I think the Red Garland Trio was a Dream Rhythm section for any Artist, I wonder how it would have sounded if they would have had the opportunity to record with Lester Young. I think it would have been something great !

    One of my favourite albums by one the artists I admire most.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Really underappreciated. It´s a unique experience to hear Rouse playing Bossa Nova only. But interesting his "Monkish" phrasings. It´s a beautiful album.
  4. "Last Albums" or appearances you can recommend

    Bird´s last album from 1954. The "I love Paris" from december 1954 has a moving quality. As on Bud Powell´s last album. The "Round Midnight" from 1965 also has a moving quality, and there is a rare version of Coltrane´s "Moment´s Notice" on it. As much as I know the only time Bud recorded a Coltrane composition.

    Great concert, Dizzy with guest stars James Moody and Milt Jackson ! Also very fine the guitar of Ed Cherry and the outstanding bass solo of Mike Howell on Night in Tunisia. Great to hear some old tunes with new arrangements......

    This , I think, is an album of superlatives: - IMHO Dexter´s best album on Columbia (from the span from 1976 - 1981) - Maybe one of the best "acoustic albums" of the late 70´s - - Wonderful cover photo - great liner notes
  7. Interviews for insiders, very interesting, I mentioned this book above since Hampton Hawes is one of the musicians interviewed. Others are Ornette Coleman, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Johnny Griffin, Freddie Hubbard, Leon Thomas , Betty Carter etc. ......
  8. an excellent choice ! I remember I bought this book in the late seventies. Hampton Hawes was really a great piano player and as the book shows, a great story teller also. I´ve also read an interview with Hampton Hawes done by drummer Art Taylor, which was later published in Taylor´s book "Notes and Tones". It´s a very angry and frustrated Hampton Hawes there…...

    Oh this one is really fine, those longer tracks like "Boppin´ a Riff" and so on. This would have been most welcome in the thread "late 40´s " also in this Forum. The Album "Ornette" with Don Cherry, Scott LaFaro and Ed Blackwell was very important for me when I started to listen to so called "Free Jazz". It is "easy listening free jazz" since it has still a "swing Feeling". More advanced Free Jazz with completly non - swing , at that early stage was still to hard for me to understand…..

    If I remember right, this was the first Dizzy album I heard as a teenager about lat 76, early 77. Great the tenor tandem Griff and Jaws, Milt Jackson, fine Tommy Flanagan and a lot of Diz...... On the CD there is a bonus track "April".

    My "Gordon-mania" continues ! I was lucky to see Dexter live on several occasions. We were a little group of big Gordon fans and I remember our exitement when the appearance of his next album "Gotham City" was advertised in the news-folders of our favourite record dealer. Finally in spring 1981 the "new album" Gotham City was in the shop, I bought it and went few blocks down to the little hip jazz club "Spelunke" were we were regulars, and they spinned it and we all listened to it. The other record from 1982 is very fine live playing, though the sound quality is not the best. It´s great to hear the live version of "Moment´s Notice" and "Body and Soul".
  12. I heard him with Max Roach. Also Tyrone Brown became a member of Max Roach´s quartet a little later.
  13. Dexter Gordon

    this must be very interesting, since most of the live material of Gordon on Steeplechase was made in the summer 1964, and later in the 70´s there was more Studio Recordings (with the exception of the fantastic "Meeting" and "Source" where he plays with Jackie McLean).

    Very sad. He was my favourite trumpeter from the Generation of musicians from the (for me) "younger generation" (1960 Born).
