  1. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    But one can find oneself in a difficult situation as did Mrs. Duckworth last week. She was swimming at an out of town friend's house when unmasked landscapers arrived. They seemed to take it as a personal affront that Mrs. Duckworth was wearing a mask and after several tense minutes as she gathered her things to leave, one of the fellows intentionally coughed on her.
  2. Tito Puente in the 1940' and 1950's

    This thread has done so much to untangle those box sets; otherwise, they would definitely have continued to gather dust.
  3. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Today-I'm going with the Cootie Williams elements of this box.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    What really got me was Eddie Bert doing Flamingo. Doug Mettome and Roy Eldridge on here.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This looks really good and I bet I will love it.
  6. Tito Puente in the 1940' and 1950's

    This thread has been so helpful in straightening out the confusing Tito Puente Complete RCA box sets. I've been using the excellent research here to make playlists that actually make sense. Thank you.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I was just going to put this one on. It's a favorite.
  8. "Compost" by Jack DeJohnette (1971)

    I'm quite interested in Life Is Round by Compost as it has local (Memphis) legend and my one-time teacher Ed Finney on guitar. I fail to find it all that compelling despite my interest in the personel.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    My Sun Ra listening has shifted: I used to like the exotica from the early records, but now I'm really enjoying the more boppish and blueish stuff especially when John Gilmore plays. This one made me literally jump this morning-not something that happens much these days.
  10. Good tunes with racist titles/lyrics

    I really love hearing Louis do Sleepy Time Down South, but when I hear Benny Goodman do it, I am uncomfortable.
  11. BFT195 Belated Reveal!

    Charles Brackeen's Worshippers Come Nigh is amazing as well. Excellent array of music on this test!
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    It took decades before I caught the "joke" that every time he says "Strictly Commercial" someone plays the first notes from Midnight Sun.
  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Thanks to previous discussions on this site and a strong recommendation from Mr. Felser, I procured this and happily dug it today
  14. R.I.P. Annie Ross

    This is the one I go to regularly.
  15. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Willard Robinson songs done by Big Tea is a winning combination!
  16. Most days I actively enjoy her choices-particularly when we listen to Mississippi Fred McDowel, R.L. Burnside, or Mississipi John Hurt. But on the very rare occasion I will be exposed to the Beastie Boys, the Black Crows, or Pearl Jam and then I switch from appreciation to endurance.
  17. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I was compiling a Calvin Massey playlist but stopped to listen to this in its entirety.
  18. Archie Shepp

    A long time favorite-I spent close listening time with this one last week.
