  1. Walter Bishop Jr. - Coral Keys

    I don't know Keeper of My Soul. I'll keep an eye out for it. But I do know Valley Land (Muse, 1974): It's good. But not as good as I wanted it to be -- especially given Billy Hart & Sam Jones. Sometimes the magic works; sometimes it doesn't. Re: the write-ups -- It's just gobble-de-gook to sell stuff, no? Like the descriptions on Dusty Groove ...
  2. Walter Bishop Jr. - Coral Keys

    I'll be getting this one, for sure. Woody Shaw? Harold Vick? SOLD.
  3. Doug & Jean Carn - Spirit Of The New Land

    Very nice. Thanks for the heads-up, mjzee.
  4. Peter, Here's the discogs entry for Sweets' Just Friends LP on Black & Blue: https://www.discogs.com/Harry-Sweets-Edison-Just-Friends/release/3475684 Per that entry on discogs and allmusic.com, the music was recorded on July 26, 1975 in Nice. In this particular case, I don't have the music on LP or CD -- just a download -- so no liner notes. I was just relying on what I could find on the web. Honestly, I wouldn't be shocked if the info on both sites is wrong. But neither would I be shocked if it's correct. Regardless of the recording date, the music is stinkin' fantastic. EDIT: Check out the discogs entry: https://www.discogs.com/Harry-Edison-Just-Friends/release/14441765 It's the CD release of Edison's Just Friends. But unlike the URL above (for the LP), the CD page states that the recording was made on February 14, 1977 in Paris. Nice or Paris. 1975 or 1977. I dunno! Either way, Sweets made the record during the 70s, so it still makes the cut for inclusion in my survey.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Kenny Burrell - Handcrafted (Muse, 1978) Beautiful. I would put this record right up there among Burrell's very best.

    This CD arrived in my mailbox this evening: Wonderful.
  7. Weekly Recap - PLAYING FAVORITES: Reflections on Jazz in the 1970s Hannibal & the Sunrise Orchestra – Hannibal (MPS, 1975) Chico Hamilton – Peregrinations (Blue Note, 1975) Hilton Ruiz Trio – Piano Man (SteepleChase/Inner City, 1975) Andrew Hill – Live at Montreux (Freedom/Arista-Freedom, 1975) Harry "Sweets" Edison – Just Friends (Black & Blue, 1976) Buster Williams – Pinnacle (Muse/32 Jazz, 1975) Eberhard Weber – Yellow Fields (ECM, 1976) I said it last week, and I'll say it again: 1975 was an amazing year for jazz.
  8. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Two masterpieces of solo piano.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Recordings from the stockpile made between 1970 and 1972. Late-in-the-game brilliance. No one could ever replace Johnny Hodges. But Norris Turney's contribution -- especially with his flute -- on these late recordings (and others) is considerable. ... It seems like Ellington really enjoyed having that new "flute color" in his palette.
