  4. Wallace Roney R.I.P (COVID-19 victim)

    I had the pleasure to listen to his group in 2011 at the New Morning in Paris for a tribute to Miles. Thanks for the music!
  5. Duke Jordan - Tall Grass (SCS 1100-2) Time for Tyner Lee Konitz - Chicago'N All That Jazz!
  6. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    No idea how essential it seems to the vast majority to go to the bakery store every single day. No idea how not essential it seems to our institutions to provide more tests and more masks. Such a guilty nonchalance. Telecommuting - what an oxymoron - is working just fine here. Commuting from my desk to my turntable was a bit too frequent so I had to adjust. CDs only in the daytime. Wishing the best to every person on the board and their relatives.
  7. McCoy Tyner has died, aged 81

    I had the pleasure to listen to McCoy Tyner in a trio format in 2005 with Charnett Moffet and Eric Gravatt during the Grenoble Jazz Festival. Your music meant and means a lot to me, thank you for everything Mr. Tyner!
  8. Jack Sheldon

    Thank you for the music! https://www.bilibili.com/video/av9076247/ "I nearly miss you I've hardly seen you When I do, I get a feeling that Something should be there"
  9. BFT 189 link and discussion

    I look forward to the identification or the reveal of the tunes ! I still think I should know better about the second track. Thanks for the truly enjoyable selection!
  10. BFT 189 link and discussion

    1. Wonderful track. I have never heard of the Visitors before today. The record is on my wishlist ! 2. A tyneresque pianist with the vibe of Jazz Contemporaries. I liked it from start to finish and only recognized the India's outro. Tyner or Mabern? 3. Sacrebleu, not Fauré ! It reminded first of a masterful use of Pavane in the Sopranos, and now I also want to watch Life of Brian! Great fun track! 4. I like the atmosphere. A bit of an early Jazz Crusaders. 6. It sure has the mood of Lateef! 8. Great arrangements from Schneider & solo. The saxophonist reminds me a bit of Alour. 9. The trumpet attack is sooo Woody ! Ilistened to this concert quite a bit when compiling the discography of Shaw. A great set in his sessionography in the 60's along with the ones with Horace Silver.
  11. The USPS SUCKS

    Yes, those high-speed automated mail-sorting/ZIP-readers machines can sometimes miss the essential information, the country! The Jazz Epistles record (2014 RE) arrived fine about 10 days after my post. Great music but a bit désappointé that it's more a compilation than a proper reissue.
  12. Very sad news. So long, John, it was a pleasure to cross our ways on the board!
  13. Jazz musicians who became expatriates

    Bill Coleman
  14. Roy Eldridge And His Orchestra ‎– Rockin' Chair
  15. Great fun BFT, Pim! Our men Waldron and Harper are present ! I almost thought it was a cut from Candy Girl, but it's the Call! Cora Jazz Trio for the third track. I know the tune, and it's not on Part II, so it has to be on Part I ! I still have to listen to Part III and IV. Wardell Gray on the fifth track ! It's on a great Fontana record with early Dex! Not much clues about the rest. Pianist on Tr10 sounds like Barron. Tr12 sounds like E.S.T. featuring A.M.Z on vocals, it might me Aziza all the way. I like Tr14, and it sounds quite familiar. Bojan Z on piano?
  16. Here Is Phineas (London) Bud Shank ‎- Heritage Gene Ammons ‎- Up Tight! (Transatlantic)
  17. Dizzy Gillespie Quintet - The Cool World The record and the movie director with the OST composer: two others, is it Moody on the back on the first picture?
  18. Joe Albany Trio - Birdtown Birds J.R. Monterose, Jon Eardley, Rein De Graaff, Henk Haverhoek, Pierre Courbois ‎- Body And Soul Lee Konitz ‎- Inside Hi-Fi (Atlantic Special)
