  1. Benny Golson

    i saw him with a local Montreal rhythm section in the early '60s. Interestingly the rhythm section was guitar bass and drums: The Charlie Biddle Trio whom I also saw back Art Farmer and Jackie McLean.
  2. Catesta?

    I've heard from at least one other prolific poster that you were why he left.
  3. Catesta?

    Was he one of the guys Jim drove off the board?
  4. Benny Golson

    He was pretty well known amongst jazz fans when I started listening in the early '60s. I Remember Clifford, Whisper Not, Along Came Betty and Killer Joe amongst others by him were as close as you got to "hits" in the jazz world.
  5. Ted Curson/Don Cherry

    The notes go on to say that Curson even took up the piccolo trumpet "to fit the bill". But the notes also quote him as saying "I think (Don and I) were trying to come close to each other. I don't know why, because all we ever talked about was Dizzy."
  6. Ted Curson/Don Cherry

    The liner notes to a Savoy cd which includes 3 cuts from Archie Shepp and the New York Contemporary 5 state that Curson "had been recruited by Charles Mingus in 1960 to play in the style of Don Cherry". Is this widely known? Has it been published elsewhere? I was familiar with Curson before I'd ever heard any Don Cherry because he often played Montreal when I moved there in 1961. (I saw Mingus sit in with him at least once.)
  7. Mosaics on Spotify

    Sort of off-topic: The Mosaic Louis Prima/Wingy Manone set is available for both streaming and downloading on Amazon. A bit expensive per disc but the discs have more on them than the hard copy release. (3 volumes instead of 4.) https://smile.amazon.com/s?k=Louis+Prima%2FWingy&i=digital-music&ref=nb_sb_noss
  8. Are we not counting bootlegs? There are many recordings of Bird from the Pershing Hotel Ballroom: http://www.plosin.com/milesahead/BirdQuery.aspx
  9. Formatting gone nuts?

    Am I the only one who can only one who can't get the "active" format?
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I've somehow got a disc's worth of Infidel's outtakes on my computer and it's way better than the original release, so I'm looking forward to this.
  11. Phil Schaap R.I.P.

    Thanks for this.
  12. Is that the one from the Savory collection? IIRC they used recordings he supplied when they wanted a "sequel" to the Carnegie Hall set. Are the Manhattan Room discs from Savory? And are they a licensed release?
  13. Fire Music - Free Jazz Documentary

    Damn right. And the ad doesn't even mention Cecil Taylor.
