  3. Best CTI records

    Truth be told, I found most of the CTI cover very unpleasant. Too bright and glaring and with nothing at all to do with the music. My taste in jazz covers leans to photo’s of the musicians or at least with a direct link to the music being played. i suppose the covers on CTI albums share with the music inside that overproduced quality which fits well as an entire pqckage.
  4. Essential Solos

    Doing some traveling this summer. Listened to the following two below on my iphone while out walking in the Colorado Rockies. Wheatleigh Hall - one of the great Sonny Rollins solos. Full of creativity and swings like mad. from The Eternal Triangles session. Sighin’’ and Cryin’ - this track from the Song For My Father album is all Horace Silver on piano with some horns in the background. The playing here by Horace is so damned good that I want to keep playing this track over and over again.

    Thad Jones / Mel Lewis Orchestra - All My Yesterdays
  6. Best CTI records

    Never cared for most CTI albums. Contrary to what many others have said, Milt Jackson’s Sunflower album is not to my taste. At one time I had both Sunflower and Goodbye and disposed of both. I love Milt Jackson and have countless other of his recordings I like a great deal. Though I am not home to check, my recollection is that the only 3 CTI albums I have and enjoy are : Paul Desmond - Pure Desmond Stanley Turrentine with Milt Jackson - Cherry Jim Hall - Concertierto

  10. Pony Poindexter, any fans?

    To be honest, Pony Poindexter has never been a favorite of mine. One I do like is Pony’s Express mainly because it has many other saxophone players I like, and the arrangements are good. When I think of the alto sax players I like, Pony comes far far down the list. I sense a certain shrillness to his sound, and I don’t find his solos to be interesting, though there are likely a few exceptions. My comments are not in line with what others here have said, but it is just my personal opinion.
