    Freddie Redd - Straight Ahead (Interplay, 1977) with Henry Franklin & Carl Burnett
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    That's likely true for MANY of us here. Now listening to some late-in-the-game Ben:
  3. Greatest LPs to never make it to CD

    Chuck, that LP was briefly available on CD. For some reason, it was re-titled Empirical.

    Miles Davis Quintet - Live in Europe 1969: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 2 (Sony) Disc 1 - from Juan-les-Pin

    Very sad news. R.I.P.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    More of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers with Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter: The Witch Doctor (Blue Note, rel. 1968) From the The Complete Blue Note Recordings of Art Blakey's 1960 Jazz Messengers set on Mosaic. (Usually, I'd rather hear the music as programmed on the original LPs, rather than just listening to the tunes in chronological order.) It's amazing just how much stellar music this band made in such a short time.

    John Coltrane - The Classic Quartet: Complete Impulse Studio Recordings (Impulse!) Disc 1
  8. A Long Weekend in New York City

    My wife & I had a great time in NYC. I caught most of the shows described in my original post. I also heard Joel Ross' Parables -- a bunch of young, up-and-coming jazzers -- at the Jazz Gallery. The band that knocked me out the most? Jacob Sacks' Quintet at Cornelia Street Cafe. Gorgeous, spontaneous, fun music. As I mentioned in my original post, I wasn't all that familiar with Sacks, but he really impressed me a ton -- both his playing and his compositions. I'm going to have to track down some of his recordings, although I don't think the particular line-up that I saw has released any. Billy Hart's band was also wonderful -- subtle and Monkishly oblique. Joe Lovano's Us Five and Arturo O'Farrill's Big Band were great too. Hell, it was ALL good. I only wish I could've stayed longer and heard more.

  14. A Long Weekend in New York City

    I didn't realize Weiss was playing. When I checked Mezzrow's site a few weeks ago, another artist was slated to perform. Thanks for the heads-up.
