  1. What Are You Watching

    TWIN PEAKS! SEASON 3!
  2. Marian McPartland's "Reprise"

    Always loved her bossa album on the Time label:
  3. New Thelonious Monk album

    Thanks. I'm waiting for the CD. I'm used to 1990s LP prices.
  4. New Thelonious Monk album

    How is the sound on this? Stereo or mono? Well-balanced? Does any of the cover art or inserts feature stills from the film, or is it all pictures of Monk? Does the book talk about the film?
  5. George Duvivier corner

    He is on a lot of east coast space age bachelor pad albums.

    Dave Pell has the distinction of having the greatest album title ever in the history of LP records: The Liberty LP JAZZ VOICES IN VIDEO! When I first found this LP in a thrift store, I could not stop obsessively saying "Jazz Voices in Video" over and over again. Here is a track: In this capacity, he produced what must be the greatest exotica one-off LP ever, Robert Drasnin's Voodoo.
  8. Is there any video footage of Hank Mobley playing?

    New York New York There. It had to be useful for something.

    Steve Allen was so cool. Steve Allen was so cool. Steve Allen was so cool. Steve Allen was so cool. Steve Allen was so cool. Steve Allen was so cool. Steve Allen was so cool. Steve Allen was so cool.
  12. You start a thread, in a public forum, about the state of a company that manufacturers high-end horse-drawn carriages, and then you tell the participants that they are going off topic because they acknowledge the popularity of the automobile? It is irrelevant whether Mosaic is unable to offer downloads; but the fact that they don't offer downloads is nevertheless relevant. Virtually everything brought up in that thread - including an aging/dying audience, downloads, streaming, pricing, content, and presentation - have all contributed to the state that Mosaic is in. The fact that some of these factors are beyond Mosaic's control does not mean that all of their decisions have been good ones. Oh, and the person starting a conversation cannot control every turn that conversation takes. Someone who allegedly listens to jazz, of all things, should have picked up on that by now.
  13. What's the difference between a sopranino sax and a soprano sax?

    The sopranino is reserved for those special occasions in which the artist seeks to attain a level of annoyance that is beyond the capabilities of even the dreaded soprano sax.
  14. Can Anyone Help me Identify an Electronic "Classical" PIece?

    I had wondered if it might be "Music for Piano with Slow Sweep Pure Wave Oscillators" but it is not. I will see what else I can find. Thanks for your interest!
  15. Heard this on the radio in the early 1990s. It runs about 20 or 30 minutes. Here is how it works: A synthesizer or oscillator of some sort is set on a slow, steady upward glissando from the lowest note you can hear to the highest note you can hear. The span from lowest to highest note slowly occurs over the entire duration of the piece. As soon as the glissando instrument hits the midway point between two pitches, another synthesizer anticipates the next pitch. So, when the glissando is in the cracks between C and C#, the other is hitting the C#. As the glissando approaches the target note, you hear the speed of the vibrations slow down. Eventually, they meet on C#. Then the glissando passes C#. When it gets to the midway point, the other keyboard hits a D. As the glissando approaches the D, you hear the speed of the vibrations slow down. Eventually, they meet on D. The glissando passes D... And so on… This continues until the pitches reach the fringe of our hearing range. I have looked for this piece for a long time. I hope someone knows what this is. It is an incredibly hypnotic experience Apologies if my description is vague.
