  1. This was just released on Amazon Prime. Has anyone watched it yet? I knew it was being worked on for the past 4 or so years. I didn't know till this now it is available. https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B08DK6MTHK/ref=atv_dp_share_r_fb_0fea07c937584?fbclid=IwAR1wYwFRksKkW7KvqM9INq0LsBsH6yN8c7PqeN7K0g_htz1CYvRm5ezEC7s
  2. I recently bought an Argo first issue recording of James Moody, "James Moody." The vinyl on this record is so thick, unlike any other records I've ever had. You can see how good the quality of the vinyl used in this recording by just holding the records. Which record company(s) used the best vinyl in your opinion?
  3. Overlooked pianists

    There are two that come to mind for me that have drifted into oblivion, and one day when their names are mention, most might remember them. Both I feel were real fine players who need to get more respect. Herman Foster Albert Dailey Lou Donaldson's "Blues Walk" and "Light Foot", Foster's playing is so good. There not much of Foster as a leader available. I've found these two recordings offered in one package. Explosive Piano of Herman / Have You Heard Herman. Albert Dailey died way too young. Plus he didn't have that much output as a leader, but he was an amazing player. He plays so nice on Stan Getz's album "Lover Man" and Freddie Hubbard's "Backlash." From these two albums I started to hunt down recordings with him. Dailey was also in Sonny Rollins' band in the early 70's, but I don't believe he recorded with Sonny. Any recordings with either of these two that come to mind? Can anyone think of other pianists that for one reason or another don't hit the radar but you think should? I did manage to get a copy of Piano Jazz with Albert Dailey. He is brilliant.

    That’s what happens when I type on my iPhone. It always thinks I meant to spell something else.
  14. JAZZ NOTES He wrote his first piece when a boy, by way of trying to woo a girl. That he failed in his quest didn't cause Wayne Shorter too much angst because he already saw art as a doorway to adventures of a more internal sort. Chasing girls was put on hold while he conquered clarinet, saxophone, and composition. He listened avidly to Stravinsky, Dvorak, and Ravel, and then at the age of 15 heard Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk and Dizzy Gillespie. His world was turned on its head. https://www.theage.com.au/culture/music/assured-and-compelling-wayne-shorter-s-relentless-quest-for-truth-20200928-p55zu7.html?fbclid=IwAR0ppdEEg4t1vICIrWXa7k8QuwVoCkBdZgm4KQGjJSRMrLThMqX2sGWSIuY

  18. Great solo efforts.

    I've been listening to Lee Konitz's "Lone-Lee" solo album. This is a good one.
  19. Great solo efforts.

    Here are some great jazz solo albums (unaccompanied albums). Any others that come to mine? Yes, despite what many people think, this is a good album. Joe Pass always was great playing with himself.
  20. What happens to your collection?

    It will go into a wing named after me of a museum called trash 😀
  21. RIP Stanley Crouch
