  1. The USPS SUCKS

    Detroit and Chicago have been dead zones where media mail goes to sit for a month or more. I guess the workers are playing solitaire rather than sorting packages. When buying from vendors near them, I always pay for priority mail.
  2. Complete Miles Davis - 70CD + DVD

    I thought about this set, but since I already own the music that I listen to in it, the small amount of bonus material doesn't make it a priority to acquire.
  3. Post a pic

    I took this cat photo circa 1986 at a friend's house in Central Kentucky. I think many of them were siblings.
  4. Frank Zappa

    The younger two got 30% each and the older two 20%, if I remember right. A crappy thing to do to your kids. Remember that the Zappa Family Trust was insolvent at one point after Gail’s death.
  5. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    I got in touch with Scott and my order shipped via UPS yesterday and is due July 6. It sounds like the company they subcontracted to ship orders is shipping them in random or alphabetical order, instead of by order date. Now I need to learn what the mystery package that is due to arrive from Stamford, CT, that very same day...
  6. Clifford Brown

    I'm sure he's an "artiste" who is of no interest and will never come close to approaching the quality of Clifford Brown's compositions and recordings. It is puzzling why so many young artists persist in filling their CDs with originals. Every once in awhile, one of them surprises me, but all too often, they come off as either knockoffs or run of the mill songs that don't stick in one's mind. I've heard that some of their mentors encourage them to write a lot, because they aren't making royalties from playing other's compositions. But if the CD ends up in the 99 cent cutout bins, they won't be cashing in on royalties. Even veteran artists who are prolific songwriters usually include a hefty amount of standards and/or songs by fellow jazz artists when they play concerts.
  7. Clifford Brown

    It is amazing how much he recorded in such a brief life and that several of his songs have long been jazz standards. There are plenty of veterans who are prolific songwriters where you could ask most jazz fans, name two compositions of the artist and you would get no answer.
  8. 2022 MLB Season Thread

    Too bad we can’t witness Aaron Judge battling Mickey Mantle in a home run derby for distance. With his height advantage, Judge would likely win, but Mantle loved hitting distance shots. He came the closest to hitting one out of the old Yankee Stadium, hitting the upper facade in right field.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    A little twisted music for this morning... I didn't realize that the actor who played Sweeny Todd has been playing the former police commissioner and patriarch of the Reagan family in the CBS series "Blue Bloods."
  10. Dave Brubeck Trio Vienna 1967

    That happens when a label thinks a shorter version of a song might have a better shot at airplay for a new release. I remember even Telarc Jazz creating some for a Dave Brubeck CD that was sent out separate from the regular CD, although they do appear on regular CDs as well. I don’t make a big deal about songs being too long for my show, if I want to play it, it fits and I don’t resort to fade-outs to do so.
  11. I'll take: Marcus Roberts Trio New Orleans Meets Harlem Vol. 1 (digipak) J-Master Records – none $8
  12. what are you drinking right now?

    Cline Pinot Noir 2019 with my bride…
  13. I think that I recorded the movie on a VHS, though I'm not sure where it is and if it would still play. My wife periodically purged VHS tapes without asking me.
  14. For those who have no problem with Yoko Ono

    Yoko Ono would be the perfect choice for a torture chamber soundtrack.
