  1. Mike Longo R.I.P. (COVID-19 victim)

    Longo's best recordings as leader, in my opinion, were those he did for the CAP label. They include trio sessions, and a few with horns.
  2. Your music cataloging "system"

    What I have noticed from looking at some example given above, my 3X5 card catalog system may have more complete information. All my 3x5 cards, with just a few limited exceptions, list the musicians on the CD with an abbreviation of the instruments they are each playing. One thing in hindsight that I wish I had included was the recording date or dates of the session.

  7. McCoy Tyner has died, aged 81

    I am an "outlier" when it come to McCoy Tyner. I smiled when I saw the lengthy list of Tyner recordings on Milestone. It turns out that I only have one of his Milestone CDs. I had a number of them on LP and disposed of them when I came to realize that I did not like them. I have 5 of Tyner's sessions on the Impulse label, 3 on Blue Note, 1 on the LRC label, 1 on Chesky, 1 on Telarc and the Verve Big Band session. For my taste, Tyner is at his very best as a sideman on numerous Blue Note recordings by leaders such as Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Hank Mobley, etc. He also played well as a sideman on a few other labels in the 50's. I also like his early work with John Coltrane on Atlantic. Much of his playing in his later years lacked interest for me. Often a heavy bombastic touch and ideas I did not care for most of the time.
