  2. Billy Harper

    Yes I’m gonna be a Harper completist just like you I think! Way easier anyway than my other goal: being a Waldron completist. Fortunately Harpers discography is a bit smaller. Saves me some bucks haha! I already own: - Capra Black - Somalia - Destiny is Yours (killer album) - In Europe - Black Saint - Soran Bushi what should be my next step? Still hoping Mr. Harper will visit the Netherlands or Belgium with The Cookers some day. That’s an asskickin group

    Yes that is it with Billy to me: feeling. It’s like he is talking directly to my soul, and I am not even a spiritual person. He’s just stunning. Added to my wantlist

    Anyone know this one? Bought it for 5 euros at the Utrecht fair and it's pretty freakin great! Steamin session, wow! It's with Everett Hollins, Harold Mabern, Greg Maker, Horacee Arnold and the very great Billy Hart. So that's two drummers Seems to be one of those lesser known pearls,

  7. What music did you buy today?

    Exactly! You clearly know how it works within 48 hours some ultra rare recording on my wantlist will pop up and than I have to buy it... I mean it would be ridiculous not to!
  8. What music did you buy today?

    Had to promise my wife this will be the last for a while... all on vinyl!
  9. Branford slams Miles

    Ah in that case I agree. Don’t like all his output but Pursuance, Standard of Language and Beyond the Wall are all very nice records. But also think it’s hard to compare a saxophone player to a trumpet player... anyway thanks for explaining Scott

    Thanks! Very happy with it. Took me a day to collect, the fair is quite big and the prices are ridiculous a lot of the time. And now almost no time to listen because of work unfortunately haha. But holidays are coming here

  14. Branford slams Miles

    I do not like Branford either. Never heard him play anything mind blowing, although he is surely more mind blowing than his brother... Branford isn’t bad at all but that goes for quite a lot of saxophonists. if I have to name a saxophonist of that generation that is way better i’d say Kenny Garrett for example. But I really don’t like his negative comments on such an old master... I don’t like that whole club of arrogant and jealous musicians with low self esteem: Wynton and of course the biggest gaping asshole in jazz mr. Stanley Crouch. I don’t like jazz musicians talking negative about others anyway.
  15. all nice records!
