  2. "Last Albums" or appearances you can recommend

    Hawes' last session in 1977 for Columbia produced only two tracks that remain unissued.

  4. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Beethoven day, all on period instruments (no covers to be found, rare CDs): Pianoforte & Horn Sonata op.17 - Claude Maury & Guy Penson (Ricercar) Pianoforte & Cello Sonatas op.5 - James Weaver & Kenneth Slowik (Smithsonian) String Quartets op.18 - Smithsonian String Quartet (Smithsonian)
  5. Ellis Marsalis R.I.P. (COVID-19 victim)

    I love that album, too. What a loss ....... R.I.P.

    Well, most of today's pianists have studied at least some of Chopin's music, and since it is based on his improvisations it is no wonder that it is a favourite of many. Clare Fischer said in an interview on Jobim that he finds many chord changes in bossa nova pieces are much like Chopin.
  7. Bill Withers, R.I.P.

    An unforgettable voice. R.I.P.

    Yesterday afternoon after work: Right now:
  9. Bucky Pizzarelli R.I.P.

    This was the first time I heard him, and it convinced me. R.I.P.
  10. All the Ray Brown Trio albums are very good, as are those with guests, and the Superbass CDs.
