    There's a drummer?
  3. What are you listening to right now?

    I had missed it too. Stefan Wood had it for sale here not too long ago, and I carpe-diemed upon realizing both the oversight and the opportunity. The mix is kinda weird, they have it sounding like some kind of Child Of Water Babies type thing. But that's the mix, not the music.
  4. Jazz records with small strings sections

    I was just about to call that Konitz/Russo thing. I find it headed in a good direction, but ultimately stifled and mannered. Still, a good ride along the way.
  5. What are you listening to right now?

    As the lineup suggests, straightforward music of depth and substance, no tricks, games, or targets other than to make this music...that's a silly way to put it, but...
  6. What are you listening to right now?

    Had never heard of this record until finding it yesterday for $1.99 (new) at Half-Orice in Plano. George Adams AND Craig Handy, Cecil McBee AND Marcus Miller, Dave Kikowski AND Harry Whitaker. Tightky produced, very much a "diversely programmed prentation", not unlike that one Galaxy record, only alot more controlled, and actually better for it, because I can get through this one ok. Very much designed for a "general audience", bring a blanket, sit on the grass, watch the sunset and dig some jazz sounds of jazz, etc. Watch the little ones dance, watch dad tranceface, watch mom watch eeverybody else, that type of thing. Generality without pandering, not a bad thing, even if not a great thing. The record stays. Oh, they do "Waltz For Debby" in 4. It helps!
  7. Jazz records with small strings sections

    How many stings are these?
  8. A different producer and/or a different front line might have made this a better record. Certainly nothing wrong with the core group or the material.
  9. Death of the iPod (Everyone's buying vinyl)

    And in so many places there is no such thing as silence (or even quiet), so why not exert some choice over what noise you get bombarded with? Granted, that runs the risk of turning into a myopia of environmental entitlement but life is not without risk.

  11. AOTW August 21-28, 2016: Herbie Mann Today

    That's the one. I do like Mann as a melodist.
