  1. MYSTERY: Dolphy/Jitterbug Waltz Opening Head

    I dropped the ball. I did listen to the track but I didn't have this thread available and couldn't remember the details enough to analyze it. Next time!
  2. Brasil '66 Does Beatles Better Than the Beatles

    I started djaying last year at a friend's cider tasting room and I've used their records from time to time with good responses fr M the crowd. I grew up hearing them on the radio but ignored them for years after that because I was too "hip" but I started buying their lps about twenty years ago and found out I was misguided. They are hip in their own way.
  3. funny jimmy smith quote

    Circa 1999 I saw him several times in local venues as he was living here for a while but one of the more memorable times was when he was in the audience for a Eddie Harris show. We were sitting at tables next to each other up front so I could hear things and he was giving Eddie shit all night. Sure it was friendly teasing but weird. Alcohol might have been involved. Another time he came into a hotel that was being used to celebrate the local NPR station going fulltime jazz and Joey Calderazo was playing piano in a room and when he decided to take a break Jimmy sat down and played piano for about fortyfive minutes. That was a real treat.

  11. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Np Andrew Hill - Eternal Spirit (Blue Note) 1989 sometimes this one gets lost in the shuffle but I like hearing Hutcherson w/Hill and Greg Osby is a nice addition. His adventurous soloing mixed wth his lovely tone makes for satisfying listening.
