  1. Geri Allen Has Died

    R.I.P. Very sad news. Among many other things, it was great how she featured her mentor, Marcus Belgrave, will play these CDs later today.
  2. Geri Allen Has Died

    Best wishes. Saw her perform in a trio setting a while ago, she was really good and inspired.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The last of Mobley's Blue Note albums missing in my collection. Had an LP copy and sold it, but never got the CD. But last week I thought it was a shame I didn't have it. IMO it is one of the weakest Mobley albums - the two pop tunes fail to inspire him. Pulled it from the mailbox today after work and played it - I like those typical Mobley hard bop tunes the best, and Lamont Johnsons Maiden Voyage inspired final tune - Hancock sophistication going Boogaloo.
  4. The MJQ box is now on Last Chance! I'm glad I bought that one right away.
  5. Sexiest album covers

    Lucky Louie had taste, for sure. Back to topic:
  6. The Package arrived here a few days ago - sound is excellent. Good to hear Washington Suite without noise (pressed on bad vinyl, at least my copy, as it sounded that way from the beginning). It is still a mystery to me why a flutist of that caliber did not become known better or was offered a recording on a nationally distributed label. Maybe he was too modest about his playing abilities - I don't know. His music has haunted me with its melodies ever since I heard a few tracks on AFN Europe at the time Asha was first released.
  7. Still trying to figure out a way to hook my computer to my turntable and amp - whenever it finally works I will think of you. Where are you located? Cannot be too far from where I live ...
  8. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    One of the best lute recordings I have heard in recent years, with excellent music from a historically unique but neglected composer - and an auspicious solo debut from lutenist Paul Kieffer.
  9. When I click the links for the samples they always take me back to this page!
  10. Yes, but then the Japanese Blue Note (Jap)TOCJ-66014 [CD] is the only way to go - no other reissue of the four Benskin sides.
