  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Yes indeed! Been a while, almost forgot how much I enjoy this one. now playing,
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Bernie McGann - Ugly Beauty (Rufus Records)
  3. Scorsese's "The Irishman"

    Even in Italy, his orders were not given to him explicitly, but Frank knew/knows exactly what is required of him. A trait not lost on Russell of course! His daughter's character was one of the most interesting for me. She managed to 'say' so much in this movie without hardly speaking! Also interesting how she seems to dislike Russell from the very start. Dislike or fear.
  4. Scorsese's "The Irishman"

    Larry, the prisoners are definitely wearing German uniforms (miltary). The insignias are on the collar and breast. Apparently Frank was just "following orders" or so he recounts to Russell in the preceding scene.
  5. Very much so! And a belated thanks Now playing, more Sam Cooke
  6. I second this... Mr. Soulpope has certainly cost me a few dollars! Now playing, Syl Johnson - Complete Mythology (Numero Group)
  7. Jazz musicians that have cameos in films.

    New Orleans (1947) features Louis Armstrong with Billie Holiday, Woody Herman and also the Original New Orleans Ragtime Band (Kid Ory, Red Callender, etc). Paris Blues - Louis Armstrong (again!) and Michel Portal. Man With The Golden Arm (Sinatra) has Shelly Manne and Shorty Rogers and his Giants.
  8. Looks like I'll need to find a copy then! Thanks. Now playing, The Triffids
  9. Willie, I have most of those and a few more. Looks like the Blue Note & Prestige have been updated and released by Rittor Music. The Blue Note adds another 50 pages or so. Here's some photos (there's also a "Jazz Next Standard - Spiritual Jazz" book, but I can't find it now), And here's a page from the 'Independent Black Jazz of America' book - chosen randomly of course! Actually the Abdullah is the only 'About Time Records' entry and Nessa has 2 (the other is Roscoe Mitchell N-5). The book concentrates largely on Strata-East, Tribe, Nimbus, India Navigation, Black Jazz (label). The Hard Bop book is just a selection of, well, hard bop from USA, UK, Europe, Japan and a grand total of 3 from Australia! Obviously, these are not definitive and very subjective, but I still found a few good ones. The Fusion was helpful as I admit I wasn't a big fan to begin with. And there's also these 2 books, The "Rare Grooves" is not essential but enjoyable. A selection of apparently rare Jazz, Funk, Soul and Latin LPs. Looks very much geared towards the 'crate digger' fans. From what I can make out, the "rare" indicates vinyl availability? The cds seem easy enough to find, or at least they were.
  10. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Haydn (Quatuor Mosaiques)
