    I listened to this record yesterday. Another beauty with Riley. More featuring the drummer this evening: Sonny Rollins - The Bridge (RCA twofer) Alice Coltrane - Ptah The El Daoud Thelonious Monk - Underground And certainly some Sphere's ROIO later on, I never quite warmed up to their official releases but love their live stuff.

    It reminds of my recent read from Desmond/Hall Mosaic: Brubeck, who has never spent more than ten minutes of his life at an electric organ, much less the one he is now at, is producing sounds like an early Atwater-Kent Synthesizer. (Later he makes a few major breakthroughs, like locating the volume control pedal and figuring out how to wiggle his right hand, achieving a tremolo effect similar to Jimmy Smith with a terminal hangover, but doesn’t help much.)

    Thank you for the music, Mr. Riley.
  12. And prime NHØP! I wonder whatever became of the fine drummer Norman Fearrington. Just finishing Genesis - Wind & Wuthering and I am quite disappointed or at least strongly underwhelmed compared to old-time listenings. Spinning now Benny Carter All Stars on Sonet (with Norvo, Parlan, Nat Adderley).
