  1. George Adams, anyone?

    The two Adams/Ulmer Phalanx sessions on DIW are really special. Sirone and Rashid Ali on those. Very majestic. There are compositions by all except Rashid I think. Some very deep playing by George Adams on those. The DIW albums are 'chamber jazz' for want of a better term, while the band with Amin Ali and Calvin Weston above is a 'harmolodic bar band' for want of a better term
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Luxuriating on this newly discovered delight no end.
  3. The Bad Plus

    I resemble that remark. The Necks used to play annual sell out gigs at my local Rock venue in Melbourne every New Years eve. Not a small venue either. I guess they're also bit old hat now these days...
  4. The Bad Plus

    True. I guess I picture an audience that probably also listens to The Necks. Not that there's anything wrong with that Necks lovers!!

    Knock Knock - Has anyone been essentialising me today? Essentialiser #1 No way...not me. Essentialiser #2 No ma'am, no way, not me either.

    They kinda/sorta form the same function as Smooth Jazz but for a different audience. Cindy Blackman should have gone around and paid them a visit
  7. The Bad Plus

    oooooohhhhhhh 'musical clitoris' Bad Plus is just Smooth Jazz in sneakers anyway. Oh the irony.
  8. This is very sad. Ms Brown was a very big presence on the TV and entertainment seen over here in Australia when I was younger. I often wondered what happened to her. Many African American entertainers came over here in The Seventies to be in Stage shows and theatre and often stayed or became citizens. Sammy Davis jr also had a special relationship with Australia and was here constantly. Great memories of great people and artists. Here are a few moments from time!!!
  9. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    Well that would make sense then. Carryin On was recorded on Oct 3. Is it the liner notes to that one that mentions GG has just returned from playing a guitar workshop in Europe? If the Ronnie Scott date of 24th Oct is correct, it makes sense the Paris film was made sometime in the last week of Oct before Green may have returned to New Yorkand participated in the Reuben Wilson 45 session, if indeed the date of that session is correct. So maybe GG was only in Paris and London for a week or a few days, while Burrell and Kessell (who was living in London at the time if I'm not mistaken) remained for the body of the tour? Interestingly Grant plays I Dont Want Nothing in Paris, which he has freshly recorded for the Carryin On album a few weeks earlier. I'm assuming the Carryin On album hadn't hit the streets until after the Guitar Workshop gigs? All this is conjecture at any rate?

    I might have known I read about it on a thread here!!
  11. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    That's right, now I remember, it was Tal Farlow!!! But where did I read this? Liner Notes, The Andrews Green bio?
  12. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    Same drummer too, Don Lamond. i think Barney Kessell's got the same suit on as well. Why no mention of GG in the Braff discog? Three amps set up? Maybe Grant didn't make those gigs? I seem to remember reading somewhere that Grant Green was a late call up for this tour when someone else cancelled? Maybe Herb Ellis or Charlie Byrd? Can't remember. Fascinating information anyway. And Grant backed it up the following year with a return visit by playing Antibes.

    RIP A true great.
  14. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    I think it's just High Heel Sneakers and Upshot. Probably from a French Radio broadcast of the concert from Antibes 1970. Great stuff!
