  1. GoFundMe Campaign for Vic Juris

    Was looking forward to seeing his trio tomorrow at the Side Door [possibly one of the best jazz clubs in the country right now, imho], but at the last moment his trio is being replaced with Dave Stryker's. Wish Vic Juris well!!!
  2. One of the words in your response is the same as a word in the previous post, doesn't matter whether it's name, or part of the the album title, or a song title. Following from above - Art and Aviation - Jane Ira Bloom Interaction - Art Farmer Me and the Farmer - The Housemartins The Famer - Thin Lizzy Dizzy, Miss Lizzy - Larry Williams A night in Tunisia - Dizzy Gillespie Hope that explains it. .
  3. Have you guys been doing this, and I missed it? For instance, I say: So What - Miles Davis ,you counter with Life - Art Davis ,then Art Lives - Art Pepper , then Bird Lives - Ira Sullivan , then Art and Aviation - Jane Ira Bloom
  4. I haven't been wearing a watch on a daily basis in more than 25 years. When I was a teenager in the 1980s, I got my first one, and would wear it daily, as most of us had then. The horological need disappeared when I got my first cell phone in the late-1990s, and with my schooling, and then the job for the last 25 years I couldn't really wear a watch. Until recently I've only had one for convenience on vacations, where my cell phone wouldn't have signal. For that purpose ten or 11 years ago I bought a plastic Swatch in some airport, and it still runs, as long as I remember to replace the battery every few years. i don't even remember what watch I had prior to that. My wife, otoh, can't step outside without a watch on her wrist. Some years ago I bought for her a 26mm Rolex Lady-Datejust chronometer as a very special gift. No gold or diamonds, just a reserved stainless steel piece, as she wanted. It has been flawless, and went with her on many a trip, both terrestrial and aquatic. Recently my wife's eyesight has gotten worse, and telling time on a small dial with tiny hands has become problematic, so we decided to sell the Rolex, which I did, to an excellent, reliable on-line dealer. The process was a breeze, and the price I received was substantially more than from the other big on-line luxury watch dealers. If you want the name, PM me. It is truly amazing how Rolex watches keep their value, even after years of wear! We were initially considering buying her another one, but the prices are obscene at the moment, especially for the stainless steel models. On a whim, I bought a used mechanical 1990s 39mm Seiko in a consignment store for $30, and she's wearing it for now, and loves it. The hands are so much bigger than on her 26mm ladies watch! Since we've started to look for a new watch for her, I, myself, have gotten a bit into it. I have held on to a couple of watches that belonged to my late father; one is a giant perpetual calendar quartz Seiko from 1990, which needs to go to the Seiko service center to replace the battery and reset the calendar. It's a huge watch; my dad, unlike me, had massive wrists, so I don't know if it'll be comfortable for me once I size the bracelet, but we'll see. Another one is a self-winding no-name Swiss job from the 1970s that I remember him wearing since I was little. I've already taken it to a watch-maker for service. The plated case is brassed and dinged up, the plastic bezel has a burn mark from a hot car engine or tool surface, wherever he was working when it happened. Once it's back, I'll wear it. Are you guys wearing watches?
  5. Good call on the plugs, I'll bring them! and sun block. 85* and full sun tomorrow. The beer garden opens at noon.
  6. Dallas-Providence is an easy flight. Newport is only a short ride from there. I can help with the logistics for next year. I'm really looking forward to tomorrow, and will keep you posted on everything that goes on. There are twenty acts appearing on 4 stages, but I'm planing on catching just 4 or 5. Too bad the Arkestra is playing the early show, because my wife doesn't want to go that early. So I'm going to miss that. Otherwise, I'm planning on starting with Tia Fulle, the Spanish Harlem Orchestra, then Gary Bartz Another Earth 50th anniversary band [that's the one I really want to see], Thundercat, Billy Hart, and top it off with Herbie Hancock. Never seen him live.
  7. Friday is the day when I’ll be there. Will take some photos. Herbie Hancock Thundercat Corinne Bailey Rae The Bad Plus Sun Ra Arkestra directed by Marshall Allen Gary Bartz ANOTHER EARTH 50-Year Anniversary featuring Ravi Coltrane Kandace Springs Women of the World Spanish Harlem Orchestra Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society Billy Hart Quartet w/Ethan Iverson, Mark Turner & Ben Street Tia Fuller’s “Diamond Cut” DOMi & JD Beck The Dayna Stephens Group Mwenso & the Shakes Alphonso Horne and the Gotham Kings Tom Oren Ben Morris Quintet (ASCAP Winner) Mark Stryker: “Jazz from Detroit” Berklee Global Jazz Institute Workshop
  8. Collections

    It was pretty slim, actually, ...just the albums he produced, or wrote the liner notes for.
  9. Kenny Burrell

    Almost a 40 year difference between them...could be love, could be anything. Could be that's she's milking him [and everyone who sent the money] dry before he goes to that jazz club up above.

  11. João Gilberto RIP

    I really enjoy this cd, which combines the Amoroso / Brasil albums.
  12. João Gilberto RIP

    I'm surprised not to see Jim R's comments here. He's a bossa nova connoisseur. Haven't seen him post in the forum for a while, actually.
  13. I don't know what's not slow about it. It takes me 1 hr. to get to Boston and 2 hrs. to get back sometimes. There were 10 automobile-related deaths in Boston last year. As bad as it sounds, it's not a lot So you are safe!
  14. Watched the Broken Flowers again, first time after I saw it in the theater on its first run. Love Mulatu Astatke's music, but the film is pretentious, empty dreck, imho..
  15. I can tell you one thing - straw skimmer hats were very popular in 1915!
