  1. Maybe because I wasn't that familiar with Queen or maybe because the LA Times was so incredulous that it won the Golden Globes, I really liked Bohemian Rhapsody. But I think "Ray" is even better than "Walk the Line", maybe because I like the music even better.
  2. Now reading...

    And I suggest the 10 Martin Beck books. They're best if read in order.
  3. Don Sleet

    I don't remember why but In 1965 this was the only jazz album my girlfriend owned. Only reason I know about it.
  4. Remembering Art Farmer

    Shit, I was living in LA then. Don't know why I didn't go. Heard Farmer with the local Charlie Biddles trio backing him in a small Montreal bar sometimes in the late '60s.
  5. Remembering Art Farmer

    Wow! When was that?
  6. What's next for Mosaic

    They have a huge amount of Benny Goodman (including some with Charlie Christian) and some very good Duke Ellington but they haven't been able to make a deal with either estate.
  7. Coltrane '58: The Prestige Recordings

    And not electronically remastered for stereo. Could they get it all on one Lp including the dialogue?
  8. The King Oliver Thread

    I think it was originally issued on Hit of the Week which I presume just went under and was not bought by anyone. The master take is available on Vol 2 of the Naxos Ellington series. The cd is titled "It Don't Mean a Thing: Classical Recording vol 2 1930-1934."
  9. Coltrane '58: The Prestige Recordings

    Didn't know that. The dialogue is left off this session in the old Miles box. There could be some interesting notes with a single cd.
  10. Coltrane '58: The Prestige Recordings

    If they want to re-package things why don't they do a single cd release of the December 24, 1954 session with Miles, Monk and Bags and include the conversations. It would all fit on one disc.
  11. Coltrane '58: The Prestige Recordings

    Didn't they already release box sets of all the Trane Prestige recordings? Twice in fact.
  12. I usually don't like wasting energy on negative posts but actually she reminds me more of latter day Sarah Vaughn and I admit I don't much care for that either. I do like some present days singers though: Catherine Russell, and despite the general attitude here, Norah Jones.
  13. That great map of the clubs reminds me that between when the Hurricane Cub and Bop City were there, the Zanzibar (where Duke also played a lot) was in the Brill Building. Anyone know any other clubs that t used the space?
  14. I went to NY often in the '70s and regret that I never went to either club. IIRC Roy Eldridge was in permanent residence at Ryan's.
  15. I remember Jimmy Ryan's was still around in the '70s.
