  1. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    I'm triple vaxed as well as flu vaxed and I have recently contracted Covid. It is not as mild as I was led to believe it would be for a vaccinated individual. In retrospect it seems inevitable that I would contract this illness, working as I do in that Government sponsored petri dish, the public schools. To its credit my school district has a mask mandate in defiance of the state governor's specific order against any such restrictions.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Alternating new box set disc 1 with this.
  3. Ronnie Spector 1943-2021

    I caught Ronnie Spector at the Limelight in NYC just shy of forty years ago. It was an energetic performance; to this day I have never seen any performer grab his/her crotch as much as she did.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Yeah! Both Bascomb brothers-Paul gets a good helping on Sweet Georgia Brown.
  5. Checked it out and now I want another Sonny Stitt album. i thought I had it covered...
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Mrs. Duckworth put this on and brought me coffee in bed this morning-every bit as good as I could hope for.
  7. I ran across this, and it was the highlight of my day (so far).
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I very much want to find this one.
  9. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    I keep finding new things that I enjoy about this set; right now it's Mel Powell.
  10. Frank Zappa

    I find this sad and puzzling. In his autobiography Zappa talks about being so impressed with a late night Art Ensemble of Chicago performance at The Amougies Festival that he attempted to wake up fellow attendees with, I believe, fireworks.
  11. Chubby Jackson in "The Psychedelic Priest"

    Make a Jazz Noise Here.
  12. Kenton Presents Mosaic

    I regularly go back to this set-usually for the Bob Cooper material.
  13. I like these first person accounts-puts me in mind of this classic covering the first decades of jazz:
