  7. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Don't forget forum member Buddha the Magnificent. He's in Georgia too, down in Savannah. And Ken Dryden is just across the state line, up near Chattanooga. . . . A few slightly more famous Georgians: James Brown (raised in Augusta, GA) and Otis Redding (born in Dawson, GA; raised in Macon, GA). Georgia stakes an honorary claim to Ray Charles too -- even tho' he was raised in Florida -- because he was born in Albany. All sorts of Georgia connections. I don't know what's in the wax. If you'd like, I can look tonight when I get home from work.

    James Moody - The Blues and Other Colors (Milestone/OJC) Still grooving to this. Moody on soprano sax (rare) and interesting Tom McIntosh arrangements (as usual).
  10. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    sidewinder -- are you referring In Walked Sonny, the LP that Stitt made with Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers? Or is there another one?
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Well put! Still rolling with EKE this morning: The Complete 1932-40 Brunswick, Columbia and Master Recordings of Duke Ellington and His Orchestra (Mosaic) Disc 1 Duke Ellington - Blues in Orbit (Columbia/Legacy)
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I like Grayson and Hibbler and Jeffries and all those guys. I just prefer Ivie's singing. For example, has anyone ever done a better version of "I Got It Bad (and That Ain't Good)"?
  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Dipping into the big RCA Duke box again tonight: The Duke Ellington Centennial Edition: The Complete RCA Victor Recordings (1927-1973) Discs 11 & 12 Ivie Anderson. The best Ellington vocalist ever? ...Betty Roché comes close, but she didn't stay long. Nell Brookshire was wasn't half bad. Adelaide Hall's and Kay Davis' wordless vocal things were beautiful. ...But I'd put Ivie in the pole position. Anderson may not have had a knock-you-on-your-booty voice -- but she had soul. IMHO, none of the men come close. I do like Herb Jeffries "Flamingo"; otherwise, I'd rather hear the ladies sing.

    Dizzy Gillespie - Odyssey: 1945-1952 (Savoy) Disc 1 Duke Ellington - The Private Collection, Vol. 2: Dance Concerts, California, 1958 (Saja)
