  1. Tell Me About the Cuban Laud

    This is the time of year when I transition from drinking Old Fashioneds to rum cocktails. And with this shift in cocktail choices, I start to drag out the Latin jazz and exotica albums. A lot of my older Afro-Cuban records include an instrument that a gringo such as I would assume is an acoustic 12-string guitar. In fact, what I am probably hearing on these records is the instrument known as the Cuban Laud. I have seen these only in pictures. I have never attended a gig where one was used, let alone played in a combo that featured one. So tell me what you know - facts, impressions, and rumors are all welcome. This thread is intended as your convenient one-stop shop for all things related to the Cuban Laud.
  2. Complete Cuban Jam Sessions

    How about the Fajardo album with the giant tiki on the cover?
  3. Complete Cuban Jam Sessions

    Or just go on a diet! Says Oddjob!
  4. Complete Cuban Jam Sessions

    Yes, my brother has the LP version.
  5. Complete Cuban Jam Sessions

    There doesn't seem to be a thread about this recent-ish box set, consisting of five classic Cuban jam session albums recorded for the Panart label.
  6. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    Late to the party. I have listened to this a few times today - the one-disc, 47-minute version. I have most or all of the classic Coltrane Quartet albums, and this seems like a very solid, if not exactly earth-shattering, addition to the catalog. The 11-minute blues doesn't do much for me. Was this a warm-up? If you get rid of it, you end up with a 35- or 36-minute album, with two 18-minute sides, ideal for LP length. Very worthwhile.
  7. I assume you guys mean "contemporary" classical and not "modern" classical.
  8. New Gil Mellé - The Sentinel

    It would be a four-way, if you included the guitar.
  9. RIP Chuck Barksdale

    The Dells had one of the longest stable lineups of any group ever. Four of the five were there from the early 1950s until 2012. The new guy joined around 1960. Love the Dells.
  10. Doris Day R.I.P.

    So many sad things that I didn't know about. Her son Terry Melcher said that the nicest thing his dad ever did for Doris was dying in 1968.
  11. New Gil Mellé - The Sentinel

    Ha ha! I hope you didn't get any body fluids on your guitar.
  12. New Gil Mellé - The Sentinel

    OK, I did not realize this. I can't see the images you posted. Was this released on an LP and never reissued on CD?
  13. New Gil Mellé - The Sentinel

    To my knowledge, the Gil Melle scores that have been released are The Andromeda Strain, The Organization, and Borderline. I'll keep my ears open for Waterbirds.
  14. Trying to help out Mosaic by suggesting sets

    Oliver Nelson - The Six Million Dollar Man.
  15. New Gil Mellé - The Sentinel

    I'm talking about the Disney True Life Adventures films, with scores by Thee Great Paul Smith. I would love a CD set with all of these scores, but Disney is a bitch when it comes to licensing.
