  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Been listening to this particular Tony Williams group all week-it all started with listening to Mulgrew Miller.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The Hot 5's and many of the Hot 7's (Discs 1 and most of 2).
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Finding the complete Verve recordings of Bud Powell to be exactly the correct choice-a disc a day-this week.
  4. pm on Ornette Coleman Soapsuds Soapsuds Harmolodic – 531 917-2 $12
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Lots of good Jabbo Smith, but for some reason, I am particularly fond of Monette Moore's reading of Don't You Leave Me Here.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    In my youth it was common for drug stores, grocery stores, etc to have a small selection lp's for sale. Along with Mingus Ah Um, Ellington Indigos was seemingly omnipresent in these small clusters of record offerings. I, of course, purchased it, but failed to understand it for many, many years. Luckily I have a copy now as it is strangely challenging to find in the digital domain.
  7. Trying to help out Mosaic by suggesting sets

    I feel that Mosaic (actually) could put together a set of the Classic Bob Crosby and His Orchestra featuring the Bob Cats. On the negative side, I have no idea if there is any interest in such an endeavor. On the positive side, Chronological Classics did not issue any of their material nor has much anyone else. A set of this type would collect some great work by Yank Lawson, Billy Butterfield, Jess Stacy, Joe Sullivan, Muggsy Spanier, and Matty Matlock.
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I really like trolling through So What Are You Listening To Now as I am often reminded of great records that I need to reinvestigate. This one, on the other hand, I knew nothing about, and it definitely looks like one I need to know.
  9. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    Now there's one from which I definitely got my money's worth! Jumpin' Like Mad also worked for me big time-and it does have a Lester Aladdin track. https://www.discogs.com/release/9828776-Various-Jumpin-Like-Mad-Cool-Cats-Hip-Chicks-Non-Stop-Dancin
  10. My old friend Bob Palmer used to talk about this a bit... He had also had a hand in a film that documented Randy Weston's group going to Morocco to play with the Master Musicians of Jojouka. It was a striking film which was apparently rejected by whoever had commissioned it. I managed to view a VHS copy...
  11. Now reading...

    Stanley Booth is a Memphian and, I believe, lives in my neighborhood. He has a collection about Memphis musicians called Rhythm Oil that I can hardly recommend highly enough.
  12. My Interview With Duke Ellington

    I have an interview disc like this for Joe Henderson as a promotion for one of his Verve records.
