  1. Xanadu Gold Series

    Off-topic, with respect to Xanadu Gold Series, but on-topic for Xanadu and Wardell Gray, there's nice early Wardell with the Earl Hines Orchestra on this one: https://jazzjupiter.blogspot.com/2017/09/swing-into-bebop-earl-hines-and-his.html ...alongside my old buddy Kermit "Scotty" Scott.
  2. Happy Birthday Ken Dryden!

    Happy Birthday. (You'll need to provide your own fireworks.)
  3. Richard Wyands, RIP

    Nice man. We shared a hometown and a few common friends (the amiable Vernon Alley, for one) and so a few pleasant conversations at concerts. Mr. Wyands never seemed his age, so 91 seems almost unreal. I'm glad our paths crossed. Rest peacefully.
  4. Interesting. I just figured that the things I remember squeeze together to fill in the gaps for all the sh*t I forget, compressing time.
  5. Thanks for the tips. Is the Jonathan Fisher with guest Shelley Carrol a standing/regular Sunday gig? I ask just because the calendar for the Balcony Club ends September 19th, then picks up again mid-October. Maybe those are just the non-"standing" shows. Maybe in a couple of days, all will be revealed. Again, thanks.
  6. Up. Coming back in October, just for a few days, 7th through 15th. Any information? Thanks.
  7. Time for my annual trip to the United States. Historically - 33 years - it's been to the United Nations headquarters "near" New York City. So why am I posting here? This year, I'm going to...Richardson, TX (and later to Cincinnati). It's going to be a great change from Manhattan. Ahem. I won't have a car, though I'm near a light rail stop at Galatyn Park Station, and I will be loading the Lyft app to my mobile. The other little bummer is that I'm working Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Any suggestions for my annual chance to, like, hear live jazz? I poked around and found this place: https://www.sohofooddrinksandjazz.com/music-calendar ("Ron Jones brings you classic solo saxophone all night". Somehow, I'm not picturing five hours of "For Alto".) This place http://www.balconyclub.com/ seems to be dark during my days. This place https://kitchencafedallas.com/ looks nice, as a place, though I can't say the music offered during my days (pop vocals?) appeals much. And Dallas is pretty far. So, hey, if I'm SOL, I can live with that, but any suggestions appreciated. September 22nd - October 3rd (again, minus Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights). Thanks.
  8. Happy Birthday, Dan Gould!

    I be late too, but Happy Birthday, Dan.
  9. Happy birthday, sssssssssidewinder.
  10. Happy Birthday Shawn!

    Happy Birthday!
  11. Collections

    I haven't had access to my collection since 1999, aside from two or three holiday weeks, now decades past. At that point, my life expectancy aligned well with my collection size. Now, the years have passed and my continuously renewed expectation of "next year" feels delusional.
  12. YEN 200.000 (=USD 1.900+) ....

    But look, it comes with 6,000 points! (Sorry, I live in a world where people are always grubbing for some form of "points" - airline, restaurant, hotel... Or "likes". Jeez, I'm old.)
  13. Happy Birthday CJ Shearn!

    Happy Birthday!
  14. Fast forward six years...Happy BIrthday!
  15. Sssssoulstation - Happy Birthday!
