  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. It's just fine, what's your problem?
  4. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    Sometimes I really think someone must have made fun of Cuscuna's dancing...
  5. 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.
  6. 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...
  7. Singer Kenny Rogers Has Died, Really

    Yes, yes it is. Good eye/ear.
  8. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    Like to put in a good word for the Jimmy Smith with Cecil Payne, only thing I didn't like was the running order.
  9. Singer Kenny Rogers Has Died, Really

    She is indeed, RIP Kenny.
  10. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    More Rainbow Series goodness, every bit as good or better than some stuff that was issued at the time (see the album of ST with Less McCann upthread), Alfred apparently though about issuing part of this along with part of another unissued session with Blue Mitchell and Herbie Hancock from the same period - maybe Blue Note should do exact recreations of some of these woulda/coulda/should've beens? Must say I do prefer the rendition of "Can't Buy Me Love" from wife Shirley's live date, also pictured upthread.
  11. COVID-19

    I work in a downtown city library, I figure I'm exposed to worse than this every day. No telling though how bad it's going to be in the end. Semi stocked up and my wife is going out for more.
  12. Wynton Kelly

    Naw, I think Hank is off at the Blackhawk, on at Carnegie Hall, YMMV.
  13. Wynton Kelly

    I think he 'steals the show' on Miles @ the Blackhawk, and is dependably excellent elsewhere. Bop. ballads. blues; all no problem. Mainstream but with his own personality.
  14. Lou Donaldson 24-bit Japanese RVG's

    Is this the edition with the extra tune on Here 'Tis?
  15. As some here may remember, my wife had two stints put in her heart 6 years ago. It's been all good since then and I hope your wife's result will be every bit as good. Our love to both of you.
  16. You're probably right about that...my understanding is the tunes weren't finished, and Mick danced out what he wanted Sonny to contribute!
  17. Don't think so. And regardless of what Sonny thinks. if he was going to play on a Stones/ tunes could there be a more perfect one than "Waiting On a Friend"?
  18. Rest Easy Mom & Dad

    What a sweet picture, hold on to your memories.
  19. What live music are you going to see tonight?

    I was there with my wife, we both enjoyed it very much.
  20. It's original church music, not traditional hyms or spirituals, and the voices are a little strange but Stanley Turrentine shines on this. This and New Perspective may be the most personal music Byrd ever made. I also love GG's Feelin' the Spirit, the Shepp/Parlan duets, and both Charlie Haden/Hank Jones albums.
  21. More unheard Herbie Nichols!!!

    This is a pleasant surprise indeed.
  22. Best track you heard all week

    Yes, there are times when I totally get why my dad listened to very little other than Ellington and Morton.

    Montana State U. Northern is, of course, in the lovely jewel of the highline, Havre which is just shy of 10.000 persons while the school has just over a thousand students. I would've guessed Havre is bigger because it sprawls along US Hwy 2 for quite some distance. I was quite impressed by this little tidbit from MSUN's website: MSU-Northern is the #1 school in Montana for economic mobility, and #15 in the nation. Rankings focused on the university's "mobility rate," or the number of students that started college in the bottom 20 percent of income distribution and reached the top 20 percent.
