  13. Thoughts on the Ahmad Jamal Mosaic?

    'Time out' was on the pop album chart for 164 weeks. But er... Kenny G's 'Breathless' was on for 214 weeks. However, in Ahmad Jamal's period the album charts started off with fifteen places and, by the time 'But not for me' disappeared, it had fifty places. 'Time out' was in a 100 place chart and Breathless in a 200 place chart. So they ain't the same thing at all. Oh, and 'But not for me' was only 107 weeks on the chart, not 109. And there were a good many not quite but almost jazz albums on the chart a long time by the likes of Sinatra, Cole, Bennett, Connick, as well as Henry Mancini's 'Peter Gunn' which was not far off contemporaneous with the Jamal LP and was on for 119 weeks.

  14. Jazz recordings of television themes

    Good idea, except Lee Morgan's sidewinder (I mean his BN recording) is very frequently used in ads, gardening and cookery TV programmes (over here, anyway) so, would ANY other version count? Answer in 2 letters please. MG MG
  15. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?
