    Obviously there is no such thing as a complete jazz discography anywhere. I reviewed one CD-Rom edition of Lord's Jazz discography and bought a couple of later editions and there's always going to be older stuff that is missing or incorrectly listed. For example, when I wrote liner notes for Jaki Byard's The Last From Lennie's, the CD producer sent me all of the leftover music that was not placed on the CD or on the earlier live releases (Live! Vol. 1 & Live! Vol. 2, plus the compilation Live!). None of it was present in Lord's discography at that time.

  6. Richie Beirach - Inborn

    I bought it from Jazz Messengers recently and haven't had the chance to play it, part of the growing backlog of unheard music.
  7. Most CDs of Beethoven's Ninth easily fit on a single CD that I've seen. The LP era was another issue. Either the movements were spread across two LPs or one was faded midway and faded up on the second side, which was about as enjoyable as the resequencing, fadeouts, omissions or long silences on 8 track tapes, which I never collected in any volume. I do find that second and third tier artists generally wear out their welcome faster and don't generally put out 75 minutes of music worth hearing in one sitting. I am probably due for another purge, especially of all original CDs by artists whom I can't remember playing again since the first time I heard the CDs and made room for them on the shelves. Young artists are repeatedly getting bad advice from their teachers to "record your originals so you don't have to pay royalties." If you are a prolific, compelling composer that is one thing, but most twenty-somethings are hard pressed to have more than two or three originals that hold my attention in a single CD. Thinning out such CDs will make run for the stuff that will stand the test of time.

    Track 1 isn't Warren Wolf, though you obviously knew that. Track 2 is definitely not Chick Corea. Keep those guesses coming.
  9. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    I was listening to Zappa long before that book was published. Oddly enough, I've owned a copy for a long time and never gotten around to reading it.
  10. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    I am a bit different as I discovered Eric Dolphy before John Coltrane. I bought either Outward Bound or Last Date first after hearing Frank Zappa's Eric Dolphy Memorial Barbecue. Soon I was exploring Coltrane, Mingus and others with whom Dolphy recorded. It is a shame that he didn't live into his eighties.
  11. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    I have always been more interested in the 1961 Village Vanguard sessions .
  12. An unmarked box that no one investigated...
  13. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    A Love Supreme is not among my favorite John Coltrane albums. I look forward to this discovery.
