  1. Again - the next BFTs ...

    Here I am, ready to go. Sorry - I changed my job, moved again, my life has been a big mess. But I am back for my BFT
  2. It's a Wonderful Organissimo Board

    Chris, here's my mail: luca.conti@gmail.com
  3. Nelson's Stolen Moments

    Btw, the Zappa version (on Broadway the Hard Way) isn't bad at all. Nice trumpet solo by Walt Fowler. Funny how at the end of the tune the band starts to play The Police's Murder by Numbers, with Sting as a guest singer
  4. Frank Rosolino

    It's a Conn Multivider. Electronic gizmo or not, however, to me some of Frank's performances in this CD are among his best ever. His solo in "Misty" is incredible (and the rhythm section is a pleasure to hear)
  5. Frank Rosolino

    This is quite good: Frank Rosolino The Last Recording SeaBreeze 3080 1. Misty (Radio Edit) 2. I Thought About You (Radio Edit) 3. Waltz For Diane (Take Two) 4. Misty 5. I Thought About You 6. Waltz For Diane (Take One) w/Larry Willis (piano), Kevin Brandon (bass) and Billy Higgins (drums). Recorded August 1, 1978
  6. Emmett Berry

    Yes, it's really a shame. That's why I kept my Swing LP (that was a great reissue program, btw).

Tracks h and i constitute a ballad medley of 6:22 in duration. On some issues, these tracks appear separately.
  8. Reed trumpet/ trumpophone

    I seem to remember that Eddie had also written an instructional book on how to play the reed trumpet (which he held the U.S. patent to). Maybe it's still available from his website.
  9. Paul Bley - Solo in Mondsee

    I particularly like Questions, an earlier Steeplechase with Jesper Lundgaard (b) and Aage Tanggaard (d).
  10. Paul Bley - Solo in Mondsee

    Try to find (maybe it's still available) his quintet CD for 9Winds, In the Air, with John Carter, Vinny Golia, Ken Filiano and Alex Cline
  11. Paul Bley - Solo in Mondsee

    IMHO, the new ECM is a great album. I think you might as well give it a chance

    Definitely not Texier or Humair! Can't identify the other musicians although I think I recognize Stu Martin on drums but can't be certain about it. The pianist might be Joachim Kuhn!

  14. Paul Bley - Solo in Mondsee

    Well, the second track is Ornette's "Latin Genetics", even if the CD says "all compositions by Paul Bley"...
  15. where is 1010?

    I have the Columbia double LP (C2 38232) issued in 1982. Here's the tracklist: 1. The Time and the Place 2. The Shadow of Your Smile 3. One for Juan (aka Far Away Lands) 4. Nino's Scene 5. Short Cake 6. Make Someone Happy 7. On the Trail 8. Blue Bossa 9. Is That So? 10. Dailey Bread 11. Satin Doll 12. Misty The last two do not belong to "The Time and the Place" session, but are unissued (and short: 6 minutes total) studio tracks from "The Art Farmer Quintet Plays the Great Jazz Hits".
