  1. Surely it's important that the new laws pay something to performers (or at least their record companies) for streaming, unlike over-the air-radio which only paid composers.
  2. The All Things Van Morrison Thread

    BTW When I saw him at the Santa Barbara Bowl he began Moondance just as the full moon appeared over the stage. Coincidence? Or, despite appearances, does he have a sense of showmanship?
  3. The All Things Van Morrison Thread

    I've seen him live about once a decade since 1970 or so. Last time I saw him was a couple of years ago and he was great. (He dos seem to tease the audience at the end-- walks off stage and the band vamps for about 10 minutes looking offstage as if he might return but he doesn't. Though I do think I have seen him play encores a couple of times. )
  4. The All Things Van Morrison Thread

    There are some good concerts at Wolfgang's Vault or whatever it's called now.
  5. Moanin' with the bonus tracks. SMH issue

    I think the same is true on the domestic regular cd. What makes for the time difference?
  6. Alexander Hawkins - Iron Into Wind

    Nice review of an Alexander Hawkins piece here:
  7. Sun Ra: "SPACE IS THE PLACE" - 30th Anniversary

    Part of a book being done about 2 Toronto music promotors called The Garys. I saw the band during that engagement.
  8. The Searchers

    One of the great American movies. Maybe Ford and Wayne's best. BTW The Searchers like many British groups seemed to get songs from American composers before US groups. E.g. When You Walk in the Room is by Jackie de Shannon.
  9. Everything Sonny.

    Nice. Here's the front page obit from the LA Times: And I won't repeat the story of how I once mistook Newcombe for Newk in a club.
  10. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    I'd pre-ordered before they sent this. (And I'm not even as big a Hank fan as most of you seem to be. However that meant I didn't have most of these records.
  11. Don Reed, Rex Hollywood 27015

    Do you know which Jubilee broadcast this is on?
  12. Happy Birthday Medjuk!

    I've had "76 Trombones" in my head all day. Just figured out why. Thanks guys.
  13. Ken Nordine Took the A Train

    Or "left town"? As in "Lester Left Town"?
  14. Bruno Ganz (1941 - 2019)

    From American Friend poster (Dennis Hopper is cropped out). First noticed Ganz when that film was new.
  15. Makes you aware of how great Monk was as a composer. I've listened to the whole thing twice and there's not one piece here I would have rejected.
  16. Philharmonic Hall LA 1/17/45 broadcast on some AFRS One Night Stand shows?
  17. John Coltrane Prestige Box Set

    Is much from the Concord catalogue available on streaming services? That seems to be the main source of income for record companies nowadays. (We may soon have to stop calling them "record companies".)
  18. Archie Shepp Article in the Washington Post

  19. Archie Shepp Article in the Washington Post

    How do you do that? I'm being asked to subscribe.
  20. Me too. But what's an "echo coronet" and how does it work? I thought it was two trumpets one with a mute.
  21. It was fifty years ago today

    When the Lp was released in the UK and Canada it came in a box with a book of pictures and dialogue. IIRC the book contained some disconcerting dialogue not in the film. I still have the book but it's falling apart.
  22. It was fifty years ago today

    But was that film ever released?
