  1. Which Jazz box set are you grooving to right now?

    Disc 1/Sextant from The Complete Herbie Hancock On Columbia 1972-88.
  2. Ella Fitzgerald: The Complete Piano Duets

    I have a fair amount of this material, scattered across various releases, but I'll probably be picking this up anyway. Especially fond of the sides with Ellis Larkins: Ella Fitzgerald: The Complete Piano Duets
  3. Star Trek TV Show

    Green Acres indeed!
  4. 2019-2020 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    So Nolan Arenado's apparently deeply unhappy to be a Rockie now (dude, why did you sign that extension?!), but it doesn't sound as if Colorado's going to trade him. Sounds as if retirement's likely. So Dan, who are you favoring to lead the Red Sox, now that Mr. Cora has left in disgrace? Varitek? (I seem to recall your mentioning him shortly before they hired Cora.) Other? I've heard they may be interested in Mets bench coach Hensley Meulens. Some Yankees fans were pulling for him when he interviewed before the 2018 season. I don't know all that much about him. Seems like there's going to be a real scramble for the Astros, Red Sox, and Mets, with two top-tier managers fired/suspended (I would not be surprised to see somebody hire Hinch after this season; murkier waters ahead for Cora, given that he may face a longer suspension and has been so directly implicated in the Houston scheme, but I could see him coming back eventually as well) and a promising newcomer (Beltran) out of the picture as well.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Much appreciation--I will definitely check this out!
  6. Star Trek TV Show

    Picked up where I left off with Season 1 last night (Blu-Ray set, choosing the "original effects" option, hooray), and watched "The Corbomite Maneuver" plus both parts of "The Menagerie," which cleverly works the show's rejected pilot into a new story. Also picked up Cushman's book about Season 1 again; I can't say enough about its depth of detail and anecdote for anybody who's interested in the actual production of the original series. It's amazing that they pulled this program off. I was born right around the time that the series commenced and have found myself wondering if it was a hip stoner show for its time... what *were* the hip stoner TV shows for the late 1960s? Laugh-In? Smothers Brothers? Others? Same here. I've read only several of Shakespeare's plays, for starters. And the world's filling up all the time with more cultural product. That's another bonus about this board--it serves as a sort of curatorial service if one so desires, given that the folks who post here tend to be a pretty savvy bunch, and not just in matters of jazz music. How have we not talked about this yet?!? We need to get together and watch a couple of our favorite episodes.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I'm sure it's been done before (& would love any relevant recommendations), but it's cool to hear so many of Wayne's tunes in a big-band setting:
  8. "Portrait Of Jimmy Heath: The Riverside Years"

    We'll be re-airing this show on Night Lights stations next week in memory of him: Portrait Of Jimmy Heath: The Riverside Years
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    One of my favorite box-sets. Right now:
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    We have this in the station’s library, but I couldn’t resist picking up a copy for myself at the bar after seeing the VJO for the first time last Monday night:
  11. Which Jazz box set are you grooving to right now?

    Listening to it as well—on Down In The Village right now, an excellent live date. This is a superlative set.
  12. "The Big Speakeasy: Jazz and Prohibition"

    We re-aired The Big Speakeasy: Jazz And Prohibition this past week (which marked the centennial of the 18th Amendment coming into effect) and it remains archived for online listening.
