  1. The Leaders

    I haven’t listened to them in some time but I remember liking a couple of live dates I came across.
  2. PM sent on Dave McKenna featuring Zoot Sims and Dave McKenna, Double Play.
  3. Streaming questions

    Another streaming question, do most services show or give a choice of which issue of a date you can stream? In other words, can you choose mastering that is better than others? I became curious when reading about the recent Candid reissues here.
  4. Tune that affect you emotionally.

    Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole, because it was played at my dad’s funeral. I also get an emotional charge from Don Byas playing I Remember Clifford and George Adams playing Send in the Clowns. For lifting my spirits almost every time, Danny Gatton playing Linus and Lucy.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Chicken or Beef, Reptet. Milestone 1000th post! And it only took 19 years.
  6. Wordle

    Still playing, got stumped once, ouch. Like Chuck I compare scores with my kids every day. They’re younger, smarter, thinner, faster….
  7. Miles Davis Live Records

    I am curious about the responses naming Live at the Blackhawk, were people referring to the vinyl issues that were significantly edited or the subsequent cd versions with sidemen solos put back in.
  8. Nice post, it was this group that basically pulled my listening habits out of the ‘50’s. Happy to say I got to see them several times at the 1369 Club in Cambridge and once in downtown Providence for a lunchtime concert (yeah, that happened).
  9. Joe Henderson - So Near, So Far

    I am a huge Adams/Pullen fan, most people who are also into Adams/Pullen that I know tend to not like the live lp with Scofield included. I like it and wish there were more examples of people sitting in with Adams/Pullen (excepting the concert with Archie Shepp joining, it’s awful).
  10. Athletes who were/are jazz fans

    Long time sports writer from the Boston Globe, Bob Ryan, is somewhat of a jazz fan. I remember he mentioned in an article from the 1980’s that then Red Sox lefty Bruce Hurst was a jazz fan
  11. Prestige LPs: 1960s Blue Label Pressings

    Are those KLH 23’s?
  12. Wordle

    Avid player for the last month or so. I’ve solved in two twice but most often take four tries. Haven’t been stumped yet, only a matter of time I suppose. Funny aside, I recently saw a Urologist and somehow Wordle came up, his starting words are either urine or penis, staying on brand.
  13. El Cerdo Gordo - Doug Webb

    Yikes, that was something else. Thanks for posting have definitely not seen quite a few of those instruments. Also looks like a shitload of work to get that down.
  14. Joke of the Day

    What happens to duck when it flies upside down? It quacks up….
  15. Kenton Presents Mosaic

    Yes it really was. It was a store selling instruments and sheet music. The EP’s were sold at $1.98, 2.98, and $3.98. Over e few weeks I probably bought 30 or so. I sold most on eBay about 4 years ago along with another 40-50 I had picked through the years. I still have some that didn’t sell.
