  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Great ! As much as I know the only live album of Horace Silver on BN.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Fantastic ! This was the great Mingus Band of the 70´s, with George Adams and Don Pullen (later replaced by Ricky Ford and Bob Neloms). I´ll never Forget how impressed I was by their live versions of "Sue´s Changes". And Don Pullen could play everything from stride piano to free. Like Jakie Byard in the 60´s bands.....
  3. Really great to read about the early days of Sun Ra.

    I also love those early MJQ albums
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Well, I can understand what you say, and I must admit that in the last 20 years I don´t think I spinned it more often than 3 times. My favourite Green Album is the previously unissued "Solid" with McCoy Tyner and Elvin Jones, but as I said, there are days when I have a Special mood, when I had a few bad days and am grateful that Things are ok again, and than I have those Beautiful voicings of "Am I Blue" in my mind. That intro really has a moving Quality. But you are Right, there are hundreds of other Blue Note Albums that are better…..
  6. I saw the notes and my first thought was : DEXTER , especially in his later period, it´s one of his favourite licks…..

    What a wonderful relaxed thing after some heavy days , now things start to calm down and this record really does relax me. Even my wife likes this version of "Am I Blue"....
  8. Oh yes, I´m also a big fan of Fats Navarro, and the Tadd Dameron bands, especially the live broadcasts from Royal Roost.
  9. Happy Birthday, Kenny Burrell

    I´ll never Forget the first time I heard him on record. It was his solos on "Whims of Chambers" and how much I like what he Plays. I never saw him live, but have a lot of his records.
  10. Happy Birthday, JoAnne Brackeen

    Same here ! I also saw here in Joe Henderson´s quartet in Vienna in late 1978. I don´t remember who was on bass and drums, but it was a great concert. Not Long after, or during here tenure with Joe Henderson there was an interview with her in "Jazz Podium". I remember that she may have been slightly influenced by McCoy Tyner.

    Horizon is one of my favourite McCoy Tyner Albums. And on some tracks is Ran Blake on violin. I saw this Formation live in march 1980.
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This Jackie McLean Album is great. I think it was the last Album he did for BN. I like it more than the shortly before recorded "´Bout Soul". Strange cover art, it Looks more like that eerie and Abstract cover art Miles´ Bitches Brew or even more "Live Evil"...….
  13. Rarest "classic" BN in CD Era?

    The hardest to find for me was Paul Chamber´s "Bass on Top". It was not on RVG and not on Conoisseur and not on the other regular reissues until I finally ordered it from Japan, even there were not many reissues of it, my copy is one of those mini LP cover CDs.
  14. Archie Shepp

    When I saw Shepp live the first time it was the same personnel like on this record, minus the to me unknown trumpet player. But it was the great Siegfried Kessler , german born but french based, on piano, Bob Cunningham, and Clifford Jarvis......such a great concert.....
