  1. Harold Vick - Commitment
  2. Keith Tippett unwell and needs our help

    Thanks for the heads up.
  3. Gibson Guitars Files For Bankruptcy

    The operating company that manufactures the guitars is fine and profitable. The parent company had too much debt and so the only ones hurt here are their shareholders. Someone else will end up owning the company but day to day operations should stay the same.
  4. Lee Morgan: The Last Session

    I find myself listening to this one quite a bit. Lee plays his ass off and the tunes are nice too. Definitely not "in the solid hard bop camp". As mentioned earlier, it really is a group date - plenty of solo room for all. Just makes you wonder what else he could have done.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Bobby Hutcherson- “Conception”
  6. I am enjoying both the Hubbard and the Shaw. Great opportunity to contrast the two trumpeters, bands and tunes. Giving the edge to the Shaw, but having Caliman is nice on the Hubbard.
  7. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    Managed to score both of these at Record Store Day - was pretty amazed as I was not there early. Looking forward to spinning them both later.
  8. Kansas City Jazz Museum in Trouble

    I live in KC and have not been in years. My impressions are similar to those above. Not even remotely close to the country music hall of fame in Nashville.
  9. WTB: Yama by Art Farmer on CD

    Since it is available at a decent price, any opinions on the music? Front line looks great of course.
  10. How do you search for buyers on eBay? Thanks
  11. Thelonious Monk and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    So he was 18, maybe a senior in HS or freshman at UCLA. Didn't realize the jazz bug bit him that young.
  12. R.I.P. John Abercrombie

    Wow - missed this until I saw today’s Jazz Times. Too bad - what a great artist. His ECM work is tremendous.
  13. Yeah, that was one of my first, along with The Procrastinator. Two-fer BNs of the early 80s.
  14. Not much of a Dylan fan but I love BOTT. And Bootleg No. 8 (go figure). I get the love and all for him, but these are the only two that stuck with me.
  15. Received this DVD for Christmas and just now watched it. Really well done, utterly fascinating in fact. It really plays like a biography of Morgan, with Helen as one of the contributors. And then of course it turns. The first hand observations of Billy Harper and others are chilling. Lee Morgan is one of my all-time favorites. His music has been important to me for 35+ years. If you feel the same way, this is a must-see.
