  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The best jazz band that isn't an exclusively jazz band.
  2. What was the first Jazz Lp you bought?

    Cannonball Adderley Quintet - Mercy, Mercy, Mercy at K-Mart circa 1970-72 when I was in high school.
  3. Jazz musicians that have cameos in films.

    Jack Teagarden is in the Bing Crosby movie "Birh of the Blues" playing a character named Pepper.
  4. Wayne Shorter

    The first time I saw him with Weather Report in 1973 he was turning gray. When I saw WR in '74 he was no longer gray.
  5. Baritone Madness

    What I thoughtt of when I read the topic.
  6. Emailed you about a couple of the Black Saint/Sour Note boxes but haven't heard back from you.

    I am interested in 1041 Richard Muhal Abrams   9 CD   $26 and 1035 Archie Shepp 4 Cd    $20 if still available.


  7. That seems to be a popular one among jazz musicians. Richie Cole - I Love Lucy

    Great stuff. Thanks @Chuck Nessa
  9. LPs that have never made it into CD

    My vinyl is terrible. Al's not in the finest of voices but he sure can hit those low notes.
  10. Herbie Mann

    This set is what got me interested in procuring more Herbie. The Collectable twofers are a great deal too.
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I had never heard any of his solo stuff before. Really enjoying it.
  12. Any *early* Pink Floyd fans? (67-72 era)

    I lost interest when Dark Side came out partly because it got overplayed, especially in my college dorm. The two I play most are "More" and "Obscured By Clouds." "Ummagumma" was my intro so I always enjoyed the more avant garde PF. PF with Syd was kind of like the Beatles with Pete Best in that the core PF was Gilmore, Waters, Mason and Wright. Any deviations from that line-up weren't Floyd to me IMHO.
  13. Art Blakey, Johnny Griffin, Marian McPartland, Vic Dickenson, Count Basie, Gerry Mulligan, Dizzy Gillespie.
