  1. Carla Bley

    No. Seems like a lot of wife-swapping to me.
  2. Carla Bley

  3. Carla Bley

    So Paul Bley is married to Mike Mantler.
  4. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    All day, all night.
  5. Carla Bley

    That's Paul Bley's wife, right? How and what (i'm nosey) did that weird-ass thing with the switch-aroo happened? Like (I think) Gary (Peacock) and Paul sorta switch wives? Please correct me if I'm wrong immediately.
  6. Jazz musicians that have cameos in films.

    This movie was on just a few days ago on TCM and it is cheesy as shit, but the clips of Stan Getz (practicing for that nights gig in that cheesy club, but cool to see Gary Burton (I think)) and the Jimmy Smith Trio (who is the band) and Eric Burden and the Animals in full color was pretty decent. That alone was the price of admission and got me through it.
  7. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    All morning, because I inherited a batch of it: quite like Holiday Diary (Virgin Classics).
  8. Naxos CDs set to rise to more-or-less full price

    Wife on a whim (knowing that I own nearly 50 Mozart cd's) picked up "Complete Piano Concertos Vol 6" on Naxos and neither did I not own it, but am completely happy with it. I've heard( haha) that the production values, sound and presentation are up to premium standards at budget prices. She found it for 50 cents, guess that's true.
  9. Tina Brooks

    Right, why it fetches those ridiculous prices at auction houses.
  10. Mal Waldron

    I really do like Mal 1-4 and the Quest, Little/Dolphy. Honestly, anywhere Mal was on (especially the Prestige days) I bought, distinctively for his uniqueness; but in my opinion, Mal is best when left alone to do what he wants, for example his ECM date. Maybe in a unusual collaboration, Marion Brown got closest to understanding Mal's style on those great duet records they cut for Bicycle Wheel in the 80-90's. My opinion of course.
  11. Tina Brooks

    Right Dub, I wasn't trying to exemplify this aspect either, all I was trying to say is that it doesn't matter to me; if I like the music, who cares? Right?
  12. Leo Cuypers 1947-2017

    RIP to this fascinating pianist/composer who I just discovered recently; this film/footage of the "Zeeland Suite" is just simply mesmerizing to watch. Awesome to see Willem Breuker, Harry Miller and such in 1977!
  13. Stanley Turrentine

  14. Tina Brooks

    True Blue is a great record. Back to the Tracks (partially Street Singer/ J's Bag I think) for Jackie alone is awesome, and the other two Connie's are sweet. Glad to have all the BN's. I really don't care if Tina (whoever) is gay or straight, this is simply great music.
  15. Miles Davis Live Records

    Anything by the LOST quintet. Period. My Funny Valentine/ Four and More is hands down my favorite from the second quintet. Love basically Electric Miles up to retirement (1). One, wha? Two, this is the most kick-ass pic of Miles I've ever seen. Yes and yes.
  16. Les Baxter Centenary March 14, 2022

    Funny, TTK, but I've been having a bachelor pad/ exotica weekend at my house while playing pool, and the wife and friends are really digging the program.
  17. Albert Ayler

    The best way I can put it was congenial. It seemed he didn't understand what an imprint Albert had (and Donald) who I also met)) had on this music. My older daughter was speaking like he was a rock star, and I guess why not?! He had some pretty awesome kids.
  18. Fred Van Hove, R.I.P.

    Jaw-dropping for me. To see so many legends on one stage was mesmerizing.
  19. Chet Baker, misjudged?

    Love Chet Baker. Anybody seen this?
  20. Fred Van Hove, R.I.P.

    Is there a thread on forward-thinking European jazz drummers? Just wondering.
  21. Fred Van Hove, R.I.P.

    Ooof. I think you're right. Sorry fir that blunder. Nice footage of AVS I guess....
  22. Something I've never seen before, albeit, post your parameters: There is a solo by Joe.
  23. Fred Van Hove, R.I.P.

    Should be on both Brotz and Fred's pages; just great, great footage of them both.
  24. Fred Van Hove, R.I.P.

  25. Peter Brötzmann Corner

    Don't know where else to post this, but check out this nut footage!!!
