  1. Yeah, done deal. Love the album cover, everyone has their back turned towards the camera, but you can still see Brotz, drinking his favorite brew while listening to Van Hove.
  2. Hank Mobley

    Right, in Phila I think. Sad.
  3. Joe Chambers

    This. Blew me away to the point I listen to the second half more than the first.
  4. Hank Mobley

    Seems Dexter faired better than Hank in the 70's. Record deals (Steeplechase, Columbia of all places!) gigs, whereas Hank was a ghost. I'd be curious how Hank got through the 70's!
  5. Doors, my father-in-law loves them...and so do I!
  6. Hank Mobley

    Yup.
  7. I have the 3 cd set and with no equivocation, after reading this thread, I'm buying this set. Convinced, done deal.
  8. Keep this thread alive, this is incredible footage!!!
  9. Hank Mobley

    Yeah, that. No Room For Squares was it, then from that, I really like the "mature" Mobley circ, 63-70. Caddy For Daddy, Reach Out! I really dig those records. Hank can write!!
  10. Hank Mobley

    Soul Station, Roll Call, Straight No Filter...Wayne Shorter and Hank do have a lot in common: great composers and players, albeit their own styles and education. Love every single record Hank cut for BN (leader and sideman) and plus. Great composer, unique sound and style. One of my top five favorites. I like the way you put that... If I was to take one album to my albums of Hank Mobley albums to my Hank Mobley album island, it'd be Third Season.
  11. Roland Kirk rankings

    What a great recount!
  12. Hank Mobley

    And the albums left in the can: Slice, Third Season, Poppin', Curtain Call, Thinking of Home...very good, if not very very good. No waste to be had there.

  14. Max Roach - Members Don't Get Weary

    I have this but it's in storage, but I really like Roach's stay at Atlantic, great records!
  15. What music did you buy today?

    biouth= To support my local record store (Record Den!) Don Ellis Orchestra LP with that crazy fraction on PJ and Joe Zawinul, The Rise and Fall of the Third Stream with Money in the Pocket as a bonus LP (Rhino). Bought my daughter the latest Def Tones record. Don Ellis: Pieces of Eight Live at UCLA Roland Kirk: Original Album Series (Atlantic)
  16. Heaven Help Us All, Indeed

    Amen
  17. Roland Kirk rankings

    Excellent way to fill in the Atlantic gap; I ordered this set immediately! Besides Inflated Tear, I hardly see these titles available readily and cheaply. https://www.amazon.com/Original-Album-RAHSAAN-ROLAND-KIRK/dp/B011Q9HH68/ref=sr_1_3?crid=1T368288UHVTA&keywords=roland+kirk&qid=1652535653&sprefix=roland+kirk%2Caps%2C102&sr=8-3 It's a link I know, but it is just to the Amazon website. Take it down if need be.
  18. My topic is this: Why and how Atlantic acquired Mingus (again) and Roland Kirk and stuck with him for a very good run of records through the 70's, while Clive Davis was cleaning house, sans Miles of course who was still making booko bucks for Columbia. And for Atlantic, that means both Mingus and Kirk, who were still big names, then there's Lateef and Harris....did Atlantic have a change of heart? Maybe Zep was their cash cow (alas Jones at BN) to continue to promote jazz?
  19. I know I'm not exactly in the right post but I want to talk about Columbia and Atlantic records in the 70's. I'll just start a new topic if that's the case.
  20. Mingus & Cecil on a TV Show

    I (tried) to listen to what Cecil was saying, I can't follow wtf that dude was saying at all. Just to hear him speak, he's a genius (clearly knows what he's talking about).
  21. Candid label

    Don't know if anyone mentioned Don Ellis's How Time Passes (Byard!) and Out of Nowhere: Bley, Swallow!
  22. This is really cool! Cool to hear Frank Lowe talk!
  23. Mingus & Cecil on a TV Show

    This is cool! Cool to hear Cecil talking too.
  24. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Great record. Now playing: Bill Evans Interplay. Perhaps the most exuberant playing I've ever heard Bill play. Like the play on words, right?
  25. Soft Machine - Facelift France & Holland 1970 (quintet)

    Feel exactly the same.
