  6. Monoceros

    My New Year's Resolution was to give Evan Parker another try. So i pulled out Monoceros and gave it a spin. "Please" i whispered a prayer to Ayler and Brotzmann - "let me like it - or at least let me understand what is going on here." My ears started to bleed. O.K. not really - but i still don't get it. The circular breathing is impressive. The energy and effort is intense. The music? well still not my thing. Oh well, I tried. Why don't I get it?

  10. Whatever became of . . . Eric Kloss

    listening today to the excellent "One, Two, Free" i wondered whatever became of Eric Kloss? he seems to have stopped recording in the early eighties! by my calculations he is probably in his mid to late fifties! did he become ill? or like shaw - disenchanted? or like grimes - did he fall of the earth? can anyone solve this jazz mystery?

  21. I dig Betty Carter!

    I recently discovered and fell in love with the deep, breathy vocals of Betty Carter. She really belts out the standards and also can scat lightning fast. My favorite (so far) is "Social Call" (see below), but I'm looking for recommendations. Can anybody tell me some interesting tidbits about Betty, her life & loves? B)
