  2. Andrew White (1942-2020)

    Lloyd McNeill has already been mentioned. How about Eric Gravatt, Gene Rush, Steve Novosel?

    That's the band I saw perform! Didin't know about that one.

  6. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Vinyl day today: Jimmy Rowles with Buster Williams and Billy Hart. A true free mind at the piano, free of any cliché. Recorded live at a Polish festival. Side one is nice, solo piano with Rowles reminiscing between songs. But side two is a jam session with players not up to his level and an average singer, and in bad sound. A compilation of two Eddie Heywood and one Barney Bigard session for Signature, with Manne and Heywood as common denominators. Someone really should issue a box set with all Sigbature sessions. Heywood is very underrated. His 1940's sessions are all great. Very original arrangements. Another free-minded veteran pianist.
  7. Andrew White (1942-2020)

    AFAIK, no recording session, although he toured with Elvin. IIRC I saw that Jazz Machine edition in Darmstadt, Ari Brown being the second tenor. There was a Blue Note session with McCoy Tyner, Asante. He studied Coltrane so much, and still was no Trane clone. That deserves respect. I love his playing on that Tyner album. R.I.P.

    Exactly!
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    John Lewis displays so much musical humor in his solos, and you write his acompaniments down and use for big band charts. He was so great ...

  11. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Brandnew release, the best recording so far of these pieces, methinks, and the first one that is really complete with all repeats and all on one release. Rousset was concentrated and relaxed on that day, the harpsichord used sounds great and is perfectly recorded: Later this afternoon: Wanted this for a long time but only now found a cheap copy in perfect condition. Four original Italian keyboard instruments from the Nuremburg museum.

  13. R.I.P. Nadi Qamar (1917-2020)

    What a life! And proof that a great musician much too often is not widely known or on a lot of records. I always enjoyed his playing and especially his love for African instruments. Like here:

  16. Noal Cohen's Recent Discographies

    Thanks for accepting my conclusions on the Jon Hendricks session with Wes and Pony Poindexter - just correct my last name to Weil (I'm not related to composer Kurt Weill).
