    Yes, that and that bears actually have a bone there. The descriptions of the bear's playing always put me in mind of Arthur Blythe.
  2. Joni Mitchell and Blood on the Tracks

    My memory from have a/b-ed the different versions many years ago is that I thought 4/5 were at least arguably better (on a track by track basis, not thinking about overall effect on album-as-a-whole), but the one track was obviously way worse, YMMV and mine might by now too. And, IIRC, it was Bob himself who made the difference(s) not so much the band, except as they inspired different approaches from Bob.
  3. Sidney Bechet - Blue Note Mosaic

    I have a full set, not really interested in splitting it up.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I'm very wary of anything called 're-grooving', just a poor choice of word?
  5. Melton Mustafa (1947-2017)

    I too saw him with Bobby Watson/Horizon, at the Dakota in the Twin Cities.
  6. Rick Hall R.I.P

    RIP, I found his autobio a worthwhile read, not just his rags to riches rise but it touched on many different aspects of life in these united states in the 20th century.
  7. What music did you buy today?

    Got this new album the other day, it's not A Song I Thought I Heard Buddy Bolden Sing, but it's good.
  8. Shirley Scott

    If Stanley or another name horn player was on 'em I think they might've been reissued.
  9. I met a young lady years ago who had dedicated herself to playing exclusively alto clarinet, not surprisingly I never hear from or of her again. Beautiful instrument.

    '...But a lot of music doesn't swing that "swings".' And vice versa. as to young Joey, I listened to this hardly the worst Monk I've heard, pretty darned good actually, but worlds shy of being Monk and making that shit up.
  11. Shirley Scott

    didn't Shirley do 2 tribs to Horace, or was that Duke? I have everything Stanley did on BN, plus some of Shirley's on Impulse! and Atlantic (love what they did with the 5 Royales' "Th.ink"), need to get her Prestige stuff. My fav so far may be Dearly Beloved with just her, ST and a drummer, the first side is brilliantly programmed. My fav organ group remains McDuff's with Joe Dukes, Geo. Benson, and Red Holloway
  12. Merry Christmas!

    Merry, very!
  13. Lee Konitz Is 90!

    Living large!
  14. Misleading issues of existing sessions.

    No, I think the last three 'bonus tracks' are from here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comin%27_On! If the misssing tracks from Mintons were found and issued, it would be MAJOR, IMHO...
  15. Joe Lovano - General discussion

    I was there!
