  1. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Check out her YouTube channel, Cembalino - she is an excellent player. This morning, before going to work: Claudio Astronio playing William Babell's arrangements of Händel opera tunes - great stuff, when played by a sympathetic soul with capable hands, which is the case here.
  2. Ralph Peterson Jr. RIP

    Very sad news. Such an energetic drummer, but still so supportive. R.I.P.

    Earlier today: Hantai plays an excellent sounding German model harpsichord by Jonte Knif. - Our totally un-musical neighbour one floor down looks like Hantai's brother ....
  4. On to disc 2: Ordered Vol. 3, which has my favourite Waller piano solos. I have very little Waller on CD, so I'm filling gaps.
  5. New Jazz Festival Balver Hohle 11-CD Set

    Haven't heard it, but there are two of these boxes: https://www.bear-family.com/various-new-jazz-festival-balver-hoehle-1976-1977-8-cd-box.html https://www.bear-family.com/various-new-jazz-festival-balver-hoehle-11-cd.html The links display contents, but no samples, regrettably. This is the Pork Pie performance from 1974: More here: A YouTube search will bring up more to get an impression.
  6. I listened to Jimmy Smith's "Softly As A Summer Breeze" this morning, Connoisseur CD version from 1998. The sixth track is credited to Smith and titled "One For Philly Joe", but what is heard clearly is Horace Silver's "Home Cookin'". Strangely, the LP label of the original LP issue has it right. What went wrong here? Now this other CD issue has both titles: Comparing track lists of all issues listed on discogs shows that the Connoisseur CD is the only issue with the wrong title. Later issues had both. Who was messin' up?
  7. Got this today - great music, fine remastering. Enjoy it immensely.

    Probably a misattribution. The article that was to be published in 2005 still is pending, as is the sheet music. Experts say the style is from a later period than when Louis Marchand lived. The compser named is one "Monsieur de Charman(t)" ...... nothing is known of him. Still, good music, and excellently played.
