  1. 55 Bar

    A tragic loss. This was a wonderful little hole in the wall to go listen to jazz, and drink beer.
  2. Nonagenarian Jazz Musicians

  10. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    It’s going to be on time this one. Usually Mosaic doesn’t charge my credit card unless somethings going to be shipped soon. If The release date is out into the future, they usually don’t take payment. The last set, Lenny Tristano, I ordered that one was first available to order, but not anywhere near the shipping date, I wasn’t billed until 15 days or so prior to the release date. My credit card was charged $169 yesterday for this new one. I placed the order a few weeks ago.
  11. Tune that affect you emotionally.

    Another one that hits me emotionally, Billy Stayhorn's Lush Life.
  12. Con Alma = With Soul. The title is so apropos for the mood it gives off, regardless to who is playing it. This tune bring me into a state where I am almost in tears, but not a sad sense. So beautiful. In my opinion, it is Dizzy's best composition. I was just listening to a live Mike Longo recording from 2012, "celebrating Dizzy and Miles." He plays this on the CD "with soul." Any others?
  13. Allen Lowe, Jazz Hero!

    Go for you.
  14. Charnett Moffett, R.I.P.

    Very sad news. Too young.
  15. Jazz musicians that have cameos in films.

    Dexter Gordon and his band appeared in a Danish porno. While the couples had sex, him and the band played the background music. I had a copy of this but don't know where it is anymore.
