  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    My God, if I think how I translated the title of that album when I was a teenager: "eine f***ende Sonate" Well, everybody is playing great on this. One of the few recordings of Tommy Turrentine, who is really fine and it´s a pity he was so underrated. On the BN documentary film you can see him and he talks, but he looks very very frail. Butch Warren , on the last tune "Love" quotes "Old Devil Moon". I read the story about that session in Max Bolleman´s book "Sounds", he was the owner of the studio where most of the Timeless records were made. It was a terrible stress on that session because of the very unruly and uncoperative behaviour of Woody Shaw, and even worse, of his then girlfriend. But the music was great which is astonishing under those terrible circumstances.
  2. Eric Dolphy on Blue Note?

    Now without thinking, I can mention Horace Silver´s "Further Explorations".
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I saw so many album postings and albums in your ´70s thread that I always said: Same tastes like me, same period I witnessed, and now I notice you listen to some things that are completely unknown to me. It´s sure it´s my fault, I thing I´m not very open for music that is not strictly the so called "jazz". My knowlegde goes from bop, hardbop, modal,free to electric jazz (jazzrock,funk) , but it´s quite hard for me to dig into other stuff
  4. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    A wonderful album, I love those Freddie Redd compositions. Above all, "The Thespian". That beautiful rubato playing of the theme with Chambers bowing the bass , and that that break and the them played fast. And Jackie McLean and Tina Brooks are wonderful. Freddie Redd´s style is very interesting. He got his own style, I like it.

    That arrangement of "Love for Sale". Chet kept it also on his small group performances mostly live in Europe. Very fine on the 1979 live at Onkel Pö´s in Hamburg, Germany It´s one of my favourite Miles albums. I purchased it when I was a teenager.
  6. Bobby Timmons - The Soul Man

    Well, I must admit I like it very very much on Shorter´s BN. Actually "Schizophrenia" was the first Shorter album I had purchased when I was a teenager and it really grooves. About Bobby Timmons I really was impressed by those heavy chords on many of Art Blakey´s albums, and especially when I was young and loved that simple hard swinging things like "Moanin´" I would play it over and over again and enjoy it together with friends and we had a ball listening to those things like Moanin and Blues March, but I don´t listen so often to it now. On other BN albums where Timmons is a side man, I also thought that he doesn´t always sound comfortable....
  7. The All Things Van Morrison Thread

    The only occasion I saw and heard Van Morrison was on the Chet Baker video from London 1986, I think he sang "Send in the Clowns" but it didn´t kill me. About the other music I don´t know to much, it´s not my style. I only know a saxophonist Sam Morrison, who played with Miles in 1975, and an austrialian multiinstrumentalist James Morrison.

    It´s one of my favourite Miles albums. I purchased it when I was a teenager.
  9. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    The last record Charlie Parker made, the december session with Billy Bauer......
  10. Most-Recorded Jazz Drummers

    Maybe I scrolled too fast, but is it possible that THE GREAT AL FOSTER is not listed ? He must have made many many records and last not least, he is maybe my favourite drummer.
  11. Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding make an appeal

    Great Picture. When I saw Wayne Shorter around 2005 he still looked younger than 71 or 72 that he was. Here is is much older, but looks fine and happy. Reading that the opera is about greek-mythology I think about most BN albums I have from Wayne Shorter and listen very much to them: Many titles are dedicated to some mythology and you can hear it in the music. It sounds great to me, even if I´m not really into mythology, but the music speaks for itself. I think, Wayne Shorter has been quite a difficult personality, I read the book about his live, and when he says something or este interviewed, I don´t really understand everything he says, it´s some heavy complicated stuff.

    Ebenfalls tolle Scheibe. Wahnsinnsbesetzung.
  13. I think Monk, who was quite a strange and difficult personality, could be very very nice to youngsters. I think he was impressed that a 16 year old Danny Scher organized all that. And I remember I read somewhere, that in 1969, when he had that very young drummer, the son of bassist Herman Wright, the drummer still had to finish school work during the tour, and Monk somehow even supervised Wright´s school work. On a film you see him, how he talks to two very young girls and writes on a paper "Forever: Thelonious Monk" for them, and I think it was on an airport.
