  • Interests I'm a retired postal administrator. Loved jazz since my teenage years. I'm particularly interested in 50s/60s hard bop, Miles Davis, Gerry Mulligan, in fact I like most thing from that period. I'm partial to a bit of free jazz too as long as it's not too noisy. Also I've been a big David Murray fan ever since his first album in 1976. Outside of jazz I enjoy a bit of fishing when the weather's nice and can spend a lot of time watching movies (mostly dvds these days rather than the cinema.<br /><br />

  1. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    I've just sampled the Copenhagen concert. Sounds fine, taken from the original radio tapes, so much better than my Royal Jazz boot.
  2. What Are You Watching

    Deadwood Couldn't receive it fist time around and missed a lot of it on a repeat showing. Catching up now. Also finishing off Hell on Wheels.
  3. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    No cause for complaint there then. It's hardly any different from the UK price.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I often think I should play this again. Somehow I never quite feel up to it.
  5. Not on here at the moment. Looking forward to the next series.
  6. I don't think you should look for anything too deep in Lytle's music. But some of it is quite uplifting. That's how I find it. Plenty of others will differ.
  7. Nice one. I always enjoy the Lytle Riversides. They always leave me with a good feeling.
  8. Best track you heard all week

    Chasin' Another Trane from
  9. Happy Birthday ROOSTER!!

    Happy Birthday
  10. Buell Neidlinger RIP

    Very sad news. He graces some of my favourite records.
  11. Discs 1 and 2. Disc 2 with Giuffre and Hall is particularly enjoyable for its nice easy swing.
