    Truly saddening news. So long, Moose!
  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Yes, 2017 will be the year I re-discovered Waldron while listening to old favorites (including Reflections) and a bunch of new platters (including Sweet Lover, Bitter). Hope I finally manage to listen to One-Upmanship in 2018! This evening was: Radiohead - In Rainbows (either the record aged very well, or I did not, maybe both!) I have not listened to their 2016 record yet, another record I plan to discover in 2018. Dexter Gordon - Doin' Allright (just noticing the 2 l) Clifford Jordan Quartet - Glass Bead Games This album (Side A in particular) always moved me. I love the rendition of Dear Old Stockholm (almost as much as the one from Jutta Hipp) Ervin on Portrait of Vivian!
