  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I would sign up for set # 0001 of The Complete Cadet Recordings of Ray Bryant, if and when it becomes available!
  2. Sending boundless love to John Prine and his family at this time.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Every single copy of this LP that I have ever seen in a used record store has had the hell played out of it. It's easy to see why.

    The audio in the videos seems to come from a rather "noisy" LP. Has this ever been issued on CD? It is a nice album. (And "Song For My Father" is the very first track on the album if any one wishes to check it out.)
  5. Why Dave Brubeck is the Coolest Jazz Artist Ever

    This album cover, though, obviously was taken in the Wilton home

    I always had my suspicions about that whole teaching old dogs new tricks proposition. i mean, sure, you quite possibly could teach Yo-Yo Ma to play the valve trombone, but why would you want to? He seems to be doing quite well with what he's doing now -- let him stay focused on that. Sometimes it's better to let the old dogs do their old tricks again and again until they have got 'em down perfectly, thus the trick becomes making sure there is no separation, no difference between the dog and the trick. That's how workmen become craftsmen, and how craftsmen become master craftsmen, and how master craftsmen become artists. If your ever in the mood for some sweet ass blues piano, here's an old dog who knew a trick or two and he played 'em with relish and style. (There are moments during his performance of "Apex Blues" when Mr. Hodes rather loudly and exuberantly kept time with his foot on the studio floor. Listening to this disc on the player in my car. whenever his foot hit the floor, I could actually feel the floor of my car vibrate. As Dame Edna would say, "Spoooooooooky".) You're quite right!

    The "Wilton Hilton" sure looks like a lovely home. Does any one know if the Brubeck family sold it after Iola passed away? https://www.townandcountrymag.com/style/home-decor/a28396899/dave-brubeck-midcentury-connecticut-house/
