  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    First I heard the wonderful ballad album of Trane with Johnny Hartman, and then, thinking about "Village Vanguard Again" (Trane with Pharoah) I decided to spin only Pharoah.
  2. A rare photo of Hank Mobley.

    now I can see it, I remember I saw it once. I think 70´s , in any case after he recorded his last BN album and entered in his difficult semi inactive phase. But i don´t think it was from the 80´s. I saw one photo of Hank Mobley on the 1980 Tete Montoliu album and there he really looks like an old man.
  3. Hilton Ruiz - Ceora

    "Ceora" by Lee Morgan, I hadn´t known that tune since I didn´t have the Album "Cornbread", but the trumpetplayer we play with had suggested it for our set list, since than I love to play it, nice changes.
  4. Hilton Ruiz - Ceora

    I also saw him with George Coleman, Ray Drummond on bass and smiling Billy Higgins on drums ! It must have been early in 1979. I couldn´t have recognized Hilton Ruiz from that Video. I remember him as a small tiny guy…..

    I can´t see the pic on my PC
  6. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I´ll never Forget the exitement of all of us when we read that Miles would return to record Studio and tour, and how we waited to be "Man with the Horn" and "We Want..." published. I have listened to Miles live on almost all ocasions he was in town from his comeback until his death, but this first band was the one I like most. It was brandnew then, but even had Moments were it seems they looked back . "Back Seat Betty" reminds me of "Miles runs the Vooodoo down" from Bitches Brew. "My Man´s Gone Now" is great, and "Kix" even has a lot of swing rhythm for long sections. It was said that Miles´ trumpet still didn´t sound properly, but play he does on those sides, much more than on the more celebrated later Shows which I didn´t like that much. "Star People" still was a quite good Album, but with "Decoy" I started to loose interest and if I spinned "You Are Under Arrest" or "Tutu" or "Amandla" more than 3 times in my life, I´d be very surprised…….

    Always great to listen to. A great live recording of the "second quintet". Maybe the only Occasion on which Bud played "Satin Doll". Evidently because it´s reported that Ellington produced this album. The choose of the drummer "Kansas" Fields is a bit strange, normally Kenny Clarke was Bud´s drummer in Paris .

    Yeah, Bud´s first trio recordings 1947 and a very fine set from 1953, when he still was at his peak. But he could still play up to his highest standards even 15 years later, as the 1962 set in Lausanne shows. I played it yesterday.
