  • 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. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Thanks or the comment Jeff. My memory has failed me completely here. Well worth pulling out. But then this board is great for this sort of thing. I've pulled out dozens of recordings inspired by this topic over the years which would otherwise still be languishing on my shelves unplayed for goodness knows how long.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I was at this February 1958 concert at the Dominion Theatre London. The Couriers were the support band for the Dave Brubeck Quartet. My first jazz concert.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    One to dig out. IIRC think I found it a bit intense but I must have found it a keeper as I recall replacing the vinyl with the cd at the first opportunity.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Love this one. One of the first records I bought back in the 50s.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Prompted by Paul and Jeff, Some excellent stuff here from the glory days of Silkheart. It would have been breathtaking live.. Though i should say that I'm not so open to this type of music as I was thirty years ago.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Time to give it a spin then. NP A favourite from the off.
  7. Ed Bickert, RIP

    Sorry to hear this.. A fine player.
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Rounded off my short Horace Silver kick over the weekend.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Just not enough time to give these (and other classics) their due.
