  4. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    The gottiness of some people combined with the deafening silence of others are staggering.
  5. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    I hope the rerouting of the data bypassing the CDC will not affect the trustworthiness of the future reports.
  6. Bennie Green - Back on the Scene (1984 RE Jap) Donald Byrd - Chant (Tone Poet) Jazz epistle - verse 1 (1990 RE) Abdullah Ibrahim - Dream Time Johnny Griffin - The Congregation (1984 RE Fr) Those 80's French repressings with slightly oversized covers really require twofer outer sleeves.

  10. America unleashed

    Founding Fathers ! So much confusion between 0°F and 0 K.
  11. Ahmad Jamal

    Jamal created the concept of samples, without even sampling anybody else! His mixes of outbursts, breaks and furtive lines within an ethereal atmosphere can be quite enjoyable. Of his early recordings, I like the Epic & Okeh records but tends to prefer the live recordings at the Pershing or the Spotlight club. A later recording, Jamal plays Jamal, has great moment(um)s. From his very recent outputs, I have listened to his Olympia concert with Lateef (I only enjoyed the solo Lateef part) and his Marseille recording (solid date).
  12. Keith Tippett (1947-2020)

    So sad news. I had the pleasure to listen to Keith Tippett co-leading Viva la Black in Grenoble in 2008. Thank you for the mujic and for the positive vibrations!

  15. Summer songs

    I'll be seeing you In every lovely summer's day Comes the summer, you can hide behind the door The song is old, The summer days are through Like the drip, drip, drip of the raindrops When the summer shower is through Evening summer breeze Sweet warblings of the meadowlark Moonlight in Vermont The snow looked like dew and the blossoms as on a summer day. But in your arms I melt away Like ice cream on a summer's day Our summer day withers away too soon, too soon That's for Billie, I guess the number of quotes would quadruple with Sinatra. https://www.google.com/search?q=%22frank+sinatra%22+summer+site:genius.com&ei=Co3iXtCjApGKaoLhmLgO&start=0&sa=N&ved=2ahUKEwjQ0NmkxvrpAhURhRoKHYIwBuc4FBDy0wN6BAgLEDA&biw=1920&bih=930
  16. Summer songs

    My temperature rise Like a summer with a thousand Julys Gone my lovely dreams Lovely summer dreams
  17. Summer songs

    The things we did last summer, I like the version with Lou Donaldson & Horace Silver.
  18. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    True, and still a recent study on Covid from a renowned economist allowed a negative number of deaths in his modelling. Spooky.
  19. Max Roach Quartet - Speak, Brother, Speak! David Bowie – Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)
  20. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    And flexible and realistic models that can be confronted to the data.
  21. Out of the 150+ features movies that Curtiz has directed, I never came across to more than 5 of them in dvd stores. Another under-appreciated director: Martin Ritt - Hud
