  1. If anything, I like the new one better.
  2. Yes, but that's a little earlier (the not issued at the time Rainbow series albums with Jackie), I was thinking of '69 specifically and Larry Young's Mothership in particular.
  3. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Thanks, kinda what I suspected but good to hear from someone on the scene.
  4. Stairway To Heaven Meets Gilligan's Island

    It's good and funny, but not as good or as funny as I remember. Still anything that takes Zep and their fans down a notch is fine with me.
  5. I agree that Elvin Jones date with Lee is very fine, but it's not really a quartet since there are two percussionists on it, Or don't they count in your book? It's interesting to me that Elvin would add Candido, etc. to his dates in this period - it's not like he 'needed' them, but he must have enjoyed their company. Lee did a bunch of interesting sideman dates in this era, many not issued at the time.
  6. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    The Sound of Wide Open Spaces is a nice album, but do locals in Dallas still play in that distinctive Texas Tenor style or have they become just like everyone else?
  7. Ellis Marsalis R.I.P. (COVID-19 victim)

    RIP
  8. Garth Brooks and Gershwin Prize

    Just realized I missed the show on PBS, darn.
  9. Which Jazz box set are you grooving to right now?

    They could do Lou D and/or Rueben W, they both have significant amount of unissued material.
  10. Which Jazz box set are you grooving to right now?

    I actually generally prefer Joe Hen BN sideman dates because they push him in different directions than his leader dates, which are fine but more of a piece. Feel kind of the same way about John McLaughlin, prefer his work with miles to his own. Joe Hen as a sideman: Idle Moments, Brown Sugar, Point of Departure, Basra, Real McCoy, sidewinder, Song For My Father.
  11. It's just fine, what's your problem?
  12. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    Sometimes I really think someone must have made fun of Cuscuna's dancing...
  13. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    Maybe I need to listen more carefully, but I didn't hear that. At this point Lee Morgan's reputation is secure, folks know if they like him or not.
  14. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    I've heard the rest of the session from which 3 tracks were added to 6th Sense as a bonus (they are on YouTube, or at least were) - IMHO the're fine and if they put the session out on its own i'd buy it, YMMV. At this point I'm close enuff to having everything from the Alfred & Francis years that I'd actually kinda like to have it all, especially for time like these...
  15. Singer Kenny Rogers Has Died, Really

    Yes, yes it is. Good eye/ear.
