  1. Scott, I tried to leave comments on your blog but for some reason it didn't work. Just wanted to thank you for your efforts. I started listening to "jazz" in the 70s (my 20s) and this is a lot of fun. Sadly I don't know anything you've posted so far, so I must not have been paying attention back then. I am looking forward to following along and maybe I will even recognize something along the way. :O) Nick S.

  4. Just saw your post, I dont visit much anymore. Thanks but I already got one. I appreciate you remembering.
  5. Richard Grossman & Friends - "In the Air" (Nine Winds Records) This is likely a long shot but might someone here be selling this CD?
  6. peterintoronto, thanks for the suggestion but I had looked at discogs. Two of the U.S. sellers had a number of negative comments and the one that didn't wanted $50. The negative comments give me pause. On the other hand I never worry at all about the guys who sell on this forum. If I don't have any luck I may give discogs another look.
  7. Apple Music/Spotify/Tidal

    Thanks mjzee. If I fully got into digital like Stefan, I can see the virtue of an inexpensive dedicated device. I don't think I have the assembly skills you and your son have, though. One more dumb question. You would need some kind of monitor, no?
  8. Apple Music/Spotify/Tidal

    I hope you guys won't mind a dumb question. What is the benefit of something like this over just running your pc straight to your stereo? Thanks.
  9. The circus just moved into the White House. I know this is non-political but I had to say something bitter out loud today. Sorry.

    Thanks for the BFT. Track 1 is some pretty hot stuff. Also, I think I said this on your last BFT, I will never argue with some piano solos.
  11. BFT 143 ID

    Should be an easy one to find. I think I've even seen it in the sales forum. I wondered if anyone would like this track at all and I am happy you did. Thanks again for listening. As stated in the comments, I included a number of artists that were "new to me" as well. I feel like I am always behind the curve. Thanks for joining it.

    Here is the link for BFT download and streaming provided by Thom. Thanks again. Hopefully you all can find something you enjoy. Any problems, let me know and I will get Thom to fix it. : 0 ) http://thomkeith.com/BFT/bft143.html
  14. BFT 143 Discussion

    I kind of expected you to ID this one. Didn't you KC guys go up to Des Moines to see the ICP?
  15. BFT 143 Discussion

    Funny timing. Henry Butler is another "new to me" artist. I saw him do a solo set last fall at the National Folk Festival. Very eclectic style, you name it, it's in there. Bottom line though, he can really play the piano.

    Thom, You did post these responses in the discussion thread earlier. You are too busy. As far as the money part, I have the same feeling about this whole site. Also, I haven't seen an "EGAD" for a long time. : 0 )
  18. BFT 143

    I don't mean to step on the current blindfold test (I'm still listening) but I wanted to give warning that I am doing the Feb. edition. I think there are some gimmes but also hopefully some things you haven't heard. I will put the download link (thank you very much Thom Keith) in the comment thread as has been recent practice. Give it a try. Thank you.
  19. Looks great and works perfectly. Will this be in place of the previous streaming and download? Bottom line for me is, I will be very happy with what ever works best for you. You are doing the heavy lifting.
  20. BFT 143 Discussion

    Not the leader but there you go.
  21. BFT 143 Discussion

    None of your wild guesses are right. Off the top of my head, I can think of an Anthony Braxton connection to one of the horn players though. The pianist isn't from the Latin side either.
  22. BFT 143 Discussion

    Interesting comment, thanks. Of coarse I have heard of the Cecil Taylor album but I've never actually heard it, so I didn't think of that connection.
  23. BFT 143 Discussion

    So, the bass player is the leader on track 7 and the electronically enhanced answer to the second question is yes also.
  24. BFT 143 Discussion

    tkeith; I found Curtis Clark "Dreams Deferred" on spotify. Very nice album. I think I liked the trio tracks best. I found "Ballad of the Fallen" on my bookshelf. Also a very nice album.

    You obviously know that your ID is correct. Your opinion too. : 0 ) I am a fan of Marilyn Crispell but I've never heard that CD.
