  1. Happy birthday Ghost of Miles!

    😄 Yoga and meditation—helps to slow the aging process!
  2. "It's Jazz, Charlie Brown: the Vince Guaraldi Story"

    Up for the 53rd anniversary of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” today and because we’ve been re-airing it this week on Night Lights—you can listen to the archived program online: It’s Jazz, Charlie Brown: The Vince Guaraldi Story
  3. The Music of the Legendary Hasaan

    This is from Ibn Ali's Wiki entry: "Ibn Ali had further studio sessions, with Odean Pope, Art Davis and drummer Khalil Madi, on August 23 and September 7, 1965.[14] However, the master tapes of the unreleased recordings were said to have been destroyed in a fire at the record label's warehouse[9][14] in 1976.[15] Pope believed that the recordings were not released by Atlantic because the label found out that the pianist had been imprisoned shortly after the sessions.[4] The saxophonist reported in 2018 that the tapes had been found and their release was being considered.[4] "
  4. The Music of the Legendary Hasaan

    Any word on if the box set will include Ali's followup quartet session that he recorded for Atlantic, which may have been located recently?
  5. I’m rereading the original liner notes to McCoy Tyner’s Extensions in which he states, “There is a piano player in Philly who probably may never leave; however, his talents and directions had a great influence on my playing.” Hasaan Ibn Ali, perhaps? Can anybody else hazard a guess?
  6. 2018-19 Hot Stove League

    Agree with you about Eovaldi--I'd rather have him at 4 yrs/$65-70 million than the Corbin deal. And yeah, he's supposedly quite close to signing with Boston, which removes yet another option for the Yankees. Glad we at least got Paxton, because this off-season is not looking promising so far in terms of bolstering the rotation. I'm also worried that if we do make a big free-agent splash (no certainty, what with Hal S's evident concern for huge profits over making competitive offers--that perhaps combined with how badly the Ellsbury signing worked out for NY), it will be for Machado and not Harper, given the steady drumbeat of "his comments about hustle should not define him" chatter from Cashman, Boone, etc. Also concerned that signing Machado would increase the chances of NY dealing Andujar and prospects for a non-ace, #2 or #3 caliber starting pitcher, which would be a huge mistake, IMO.
  7. Which Jazz box set are you grooving to right now?

    On disc 2 and really enjoying this so far:
  8. Complete NORK 1922-1925 on Rivermont

    I noted this as well--was already planning to hang on to the Retrieval edition anyway. Thanks for the heads-up.

    Corbin to Washington for six years/$140 million. At that price & length of contract the Nats can have him. Phillies and Yankees were not willing to offer more than five years.
  10. Which Jazz box set are you grooving to right now?

    And I got a copy of that Machito 1943-48 transcriptions disc that you recently posted about! I think that was what also prompted me to finally move on the Machito Proper collection, which I'd been meaning to get for quite some time. So much appreciation, sir.
