  1. Gil Melle - Gil's Guests

    Love his tribute to Herbie Nichols on this record. I actually prefer his Prestige material to the Blue Notes -- feel like that's really when he came into his own as a composer. PRIMITIVE MODERN and QUADRAMA are both superb dates.
  2. Great program! Loved being able to hear that Ellington piece.
  3. Gil Melle

    I would totally have hired Gil Melle to so some VO work.
  4. New Dolphy release on Resonance

    I. M. Terrell! Other alums include King Curtis, Cornell Dupree and Julius Hemphill.
  5. Still amazed at how ingenious and downright musical the results of this experiment are. But:
  6. Thanks Mike. NEVER seen that Bluebird issue.
  7. I don't believe so, at least domestically. This BMG France reissue probably comes closest.
  8. I believe this set includes material not on the Fresh Sounds release. To quote a certain board member, carpe diem!
  9. Joseph Jarman - RIP

    Alvin Fielder and Joseph Jarman in rapid succession... January, 2019, you're aren't doing much to impress me so far.
  10. My mother introduced me to Don Shirley's music years ago. Not exactly my thing, but I appreciated the skill displayed. When I saw previews for this film back in September, I knew I had to take her to see it. For what it is -- a Hollywood production -- it is very, very good. Maybe even better than that, partly by virtue of its being somewhat understated in how it handles its "big issues." Mortensen and Ali are pretty much in every scene; they really carry the film with superb performances. Also surprising (to me, anyway) that Peter Farrelly (one of the Farrelly Bros.) helmed the production.
  11. Mike Nesmith Sings Claude Thornhill

    Nesmith was also involved in giving us some pretty fine records by Bert Jansch, the Kaleidoscope and Charles Lloyd.
  12. Music Minus One + 7... the math on this record is even more confusing than that MJT + 3 LP!
  13. This record, which is kind of blowing my mind.
