    Joe McPhee & Dominic Duval - The Dream Book
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Keefe Jackson & Jason Adasiewicz - Rows and Rows Took a pass on this when it first came out. Listening now and it is hitting the spot big time.
  3. That reminds me, being stressed is another things that exacerbates it for me.
  4. Yup. Mines not too bad, similar frequency to a CRT TV. It's always there but not bad enough to keep me from sleeping etc and i can forget about it sometimes. No tips for decreasing it sorry mate. I'm conscious of things that exacerbate it like caffeine, alcohol, being tired, being sick. I do everything i can to avoid further damage.

    Clifford Brown - The Beginning and The End
  11. http://www.5049records.com/podcast/ken-vandermark Interesting interview. I was looking for info on why Vandermark quit the Chicago Reed Quartet and disbanded Audio One (both fantastic 'Chicago' groups). The answers aren't here, although towards the end he does talk about how he's been frustrated with Chicago artists taking the Chicago scene for granted, in terms of getting complacent. There's not necessarily any correlation but i found it interesting. Anyway, it's an all-round interesting interview and an enjoyable conversation to listen in on. I'm not a huge Podcast guy but i've been getting more in to them lately. I'm looking forward to exploring Cymerman's other interviews.

    Antônio Carlos Jobim - The Composer Of Desafinado, Plays I apparently didn't make that much of an effort, but i've always wanted to get the Antônio Carlos Jobim album with the version of Insensatez that was used on David Lynch's Lost Highway soundtrack. Finally i have it. Maybe it's partly the familiarity from listening to it for 20 years, but i think it's a perfect piece of music.

    Earlier: Nick Mazzarella Trio - Ultraviolet Chicago... NP: Miles Okazaki - Trickster Second listen. Intriguing album. Not quite sure what i think really. All of it is impressive, some tracks take flight more than others. Some tracks i tire of quickly, others finish too soon. Despite the apparent ambivalence, time for another spin...
