  • 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 />

    Maybe not the best of Wesley's Minor Music recordings but it's always good to have a little more Hugh Ragin
  4. The Bird Curtis Quintet were the regular band at the Green Man in Blackheath, S.London I saw them several times there in the late 60 or thereabouts. I can't recall them making a very big impression on me back then.
  5. Discs 15 and 16. Disc 9 up next.

    As a teenager I used to live quite near to Ms Regan. I never met her but was acquainted with her son. She was a regular on tv and variety bills in the 50s. Thanks for the reminder JIm

    Love this one. Saw the band live at London's Union Chapel during this tour. Hopkins was especially memorable, all over the bass. Great night.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Some very nice playing here especially the trio tracks featuring Richie Beirach.
