  1. Biographies, autobiographies, documentaries, whatever .... I took Pony Poindexter's memoirs out once again, and I am astounded/delighted what a difference thirty years of listening and reading make!
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    A very underrated album, IMO. Now playing:
  3. Tell us all!!! Tonight it will be the Joanne Brackeen Quartet, with Seamus Blake, Ugonna Okegwo, and Keith Copeland!
  4. I am looking for a DVD copy of the music video that was made in connection with Robert Altman's Kansas City movie. I have the soundtrack and the CD with the additional tracks, I want the documentary-type DVD. I had a VHS tape but that seems to be lost. https://www.discogs.com/Jesse-Davis-3-David-Fathead-Newman-Ron-Carter-Christian-McBride-Tyrone-Clark-Don-Byron-Russell-Malon/release/15554885
  5. CDs that are unreadable

    A Hi-Fi dealer once told me there is no player on the market that reads every CD without problems. The percentage is very low, but every now and then it happens. Last week I got a new recently manufactured CD and it took three attempts until my Marantz would read it.
  6. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Surprisingly, it is not my favourite Duphly recording. A little too majestic and pathetic for my taste. His brand new Armand-Louis Couperin recordings, on the other hand, is the best and tops all previous versions, IMO.
  7. LF DVD Robert Altman's Jazz '34

    The DVD I posted seems to be different from the VHS tape I made from TV. I will have time tomorrow to make a last search attempt and get back to you in case I need it.
  8. Album covers with people jumpin'

    There's a whole eries of photos showing Whitfield up in the air in the booklet!
  9. Sexiest album covers

  10. Thanks a lot. Just downloading the files.
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Whitfield and his peers recorded some excellent albums in the 1990's - IMHO there may come a time when they will be regarded as classic jazz albums just like the Blue Notes and Prestiges of the 1950's and 1960's.

  13. Andrew White (1942-2020)

    Rush was on an Atlantic LP by Father Jack Herrera but played only one solo IIRC. You can listen to it on YouTube. After recording with McNeill and White he alternated with Rene Koopman at the piano chair of the Hot Cotton Jazz Band which recorded ten albums in the 1980's. Nothing more in the Tom Lord Disco.

    Great playing and sound.
