  1. Gary Peacock R.I.P.

    RIP, what a crazy situation. I can understand the family not taking the time to make an announcement immediately but it did seem take longer than normal to get,out. I still haven’t seen an obit. in the NYT or WAPO. I got to see him a few times with Jarrett and DeJohnette but my favorite performance was when he came out to the SF Jazz Festival to sub for an ailing Charlie Haden to play a duo set with Yusef Latif.

  7. Lee Morgan: The Last Session

    Thanks for posting. Not only a great interview and a sad reminder that some things never chamge but I am enjoying other articles posted on the site (jazz and more).
  8. This is the beginning of garlic harvest season, at least for California so it's not unusual to see shortages of last year's crop at this time. What is typically more common is green garlic, i.e. young garlic before the bulbs begin forming. It could very well end up being absent from markets as farm workers are not plentiful at ths time and farmer's markets will be difficult with the physical distancing if not unlawful. I'm down to a couple of cloves.

    Very sad story and with women it is too common.
  10. I didn't care for Brand New Key back in the day but......a few weeks ago at an acoustic jam session a young woman sang it and I caught myself digging her version. She looked to be barely voting age and she had that little girl voice that fit the song perfectly. It was the first time I had ever played the song but I admit it was kind of fun. I've been playing the hell out of this one since it came out. My favorite new release this year so far.

    Depression is the bitter part of Valium. :-)

  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
