  1. These tracks from sideman dates that Henderson composed to me look like a filler. (A very good filler, of course.) Without them, At least half of a CDs's playing time would have been wasted. The concept looks like that of the MJQ box, where all the alternates where added to one disc that was only partly filled. AFA Basra is concerned, maybe the problems that arose when the Connoisseur CD was planned are still reason enough to keep their hands off this one.
  2. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Getting to the last discs of the Wilson box today:
  3. Randy Weston favorites

    True, but used copies are not that hard to find. The Fresh Sound and Avid etc. reissues have several overlaps.
  4. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Simply beautiful .....
  5. Eric Dolphy on Blue Note?

    Sorry ...... I looked it up: there were seven or eight Blue Note albums with Art Farmer.

  7. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    This was my brunch music today. Excellent performance of beautiful music. Every serious lover of violin music should have this. Inspired by this item that I received and played yesterday. To me , the Benda brothers were very good composers on a level with the Bach sons. Sturm & Drang attitudes in the fast movements, and slow movememts that moved Nend's listeners to tears, as was reported.
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This is right in the middle between earlier Blue Note organ albums and later funky stylistics, and has some hip Wade Marcus arrangements with vibes, guitar, two basses, drums, and percussion. I liked it instantly and learned a lot from it.

  10. Bob Porter has died

    Porter was one of the busiest and most knowledgeable reissue producers. Just found his name on this one: https://img.discogs.com/oZLmOpR6r8HAZDhyL4c4ex3CmVg=/fit-in/500x500/filters:strip_icc():format(jpeg):mode_rgb():quality(90)/discogs-images/R-2185807-1386549241-6740.jpeg.jpg
  11. Eric Dolphy on Blue Note?

    ..... and a Hank Mobley Quintet LP.
  12. Eric Dolphy on Blue Note?

    And Farmer appeared even less often on Blue Note albums.
  13. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Got one of the last copies of this OOP recording for just € 13.00 - originally it was sold for three times as much, so I couldn't resist. Excellent performance of an opera that Handel used for "inspiration" ....
  14. Tell us all!!! Tonight it will be the Joanne Brackeen Quartet, with Seamus Blake, Ugonna Okegwo, and Keith Copeland!
