  1. R.I.P. Cyril

    I remember her from another jazz board where she posted under another name. Very sad.
  2. BFT 193 Reveal

    Another one of Ed Palmero's Big Band albums.
  3. BFT 193 Reveal

    I played it in the past week and was impressed by how good it is. Ed Palermo has had a big band for many years that has recorded many albums of mostly Frank Zappa compositions. I have not heard those albums but have read about them. This album is supposedly his turn to his own compositions and jazz standards.
  4. BFT 193 Reveal

    Thank you! I am glad you enjoyed it. That Rahsaan album was so common in the mid-1970s, that I thought that everyone would know it. I guess my advanced age is showing. Either/ Orchestra has several really good albums, including some of their later ones. After I saw them live I started to buy as many of their albums as I could find. I have to admit that I was drawn to the Ed Palmero album by the cover and album title.
  5. BFT 193 Reveal

    I have some work commitments which will prevent me from posting this Reveal until May 4, unless I post it today (April 29). I hope that the slightly early Reveal is all right.

    Dan, I am sorry that you did not like the Blindfold Test. I am surprised that someone would not like the music played by an entire instrument, the flute in your case. I did not consciously try to include a lot of flute songs. To me, if it is good music it is good music, if played on a tenor saxophone, a flute. a French horn, or a native tribal instrument from a remote area of Africa. I once tried to take a young woman to see Paul Butterfield in concert and she refused, saying that she did not listen to harmonica so I have run into this attitude before. It is not something I can identify with personally. But to each his own.

    Reply--I like this too. i am surprised that no one has identified this. Reply--i think that the Reveal for this track will surprise many. Reply--Thanks for the nice comments. The other recordings of Ahmed Abdul-Malik are very much worth checking out.

    Thank you. I appreciate your nice thoughts and look forward to your comments. I also want to thank you for letting me use your office today in my working visit to Kansas City while you are working from home!
  11. BFT 193 Link and Discussion

    Yes, you have identified it. James P. Johnson and Fats Waller on one song, two jazz giants together.
  12. BFT 193 Link and Discussion

    That is all true. Focal Point is one of my favorite Milestone Tyners. Every track is memorable and performed very well. It is a fun album to listen to. A lot of it is more uptempo than "Theme For Nana." I saw the Focal Point band live in the mid-1970s, and it was one of the best McCoy Tyner concerts I ever went to. The band was Joe Ford, Ron Bridgewater, Tyner, Charles Fambrough, Eric Gravatt, Guilherme Franco. (Gary Bartz plays on Focal Point and was not part of the live band when I saw them).

    Those are some very insightful thoughts about the Teo Macero album. Now that you have articulated them, it strikes me that much of the album has the feeling of someone who was part of the 1970s Miles “immediate orb” as you put it. That is a funny story about having Phil Woods on hand at the same time! That explains it.

    Replies to your comments: 1.This has been identified as Lester Bowie's Brass Fantasy playing a Jimmie Lunceford song. So it is a mixture of older and newer. 2. It is Fats himself, with another jazz giant on this track too. 3. It is not Gerald Wilson. That is an interesting comparison to this artist. 4. Yes, you have identified it. I think that the New Orleans Suite album by Duke Ellington is all just wonderful. 5. I am surprised that no one has identified this artist yet. Your guesses are not correct. 6. The artist would be surprised to know that he had been compared to Phil Woods and Oliver Nelson, I believe. 7. This is not Randy Weston or Muhal Richard Abrams. Your comments are so interesting because this is a band which actually did perform very often together both live and in the studio. 8. Again, your comments are interesting because the bandleader is from the urban northeast of the United States, and has no Los Angeles connection that I know of. 9. You hit the nail on the head. It is Teo Macero leading the album. It is Michael Brecker on saxophone. I am impressed that you thought of Teo Macero. However, this is from many years later than the mid-1970s era which it is evoking. 10. It is not Buck Hammer. It is someone who you might not think of playing in this way. 11. Yes, you have identified it! 12. It is a McCoy Tyner composition from an album in his name. 13. Those are some insightful comments! This is one of my favorite recordings ever by Carla Bley, who has been previously identified. Flute is also prominent on Duke Ellington's "70th Birthday Concert" but not in this arranged way.

    It is Ray Nance on #11.
