  • 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. when Eager played here (he toured the UK as a solo) in Portsmouth he traveled from London by train. He left his horn on the train. Fortunately the club secretary was able to retrieve it.
  2. Happy Birthday GA Russell!

    Happy Birthday GA
  3. Perhaps there'll be a "Rare Tracks" cd one of these days.
  4. Are there any? I haven''t come across any expanded cd issues. But there must be more material from many of the sessions. The only ones i've come across were four tracks on a Musica Jazz cd. Two duets by David Murray and Dave Burrell, one track by the WSQ and one by the Clarinet Summit.
  5. I'd copy it for you if I could.  It's on a cassette and my set up isn't copy friendly, nor is my computer programme.  I might have go some time.  If so I wont forget you.



  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Gil Evans NY Orchestra at the Festival Hall May 1988. Recording from BBC Radio. This was a couple of months after Gil's passing. Excellent cconcert. Vocals by Hiram Bullock on Little Wing and Moondance. Gil Goldstein was on the piano stool.

    I rarely play cassettes (it's amazing the deck still works and sounds pretty good) these days but these two have been awaiting a listen for some tome now. Kip Hanrahan; Days and Nights Of Blue Luck Inverted. Pangea. Conjure: Cab Calloway Stands In For The Moon. American Clave. Impressive lineups but neither of these did anything for me. Not keepers.
  8. Sonny Fortune R.I.P.
