  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I agree that one shouldn't look back when stepping out.
  2. The Grateful Dead Dark Star

    Cool. I can sell this one.
  3. Wild Bill Davison

    It's a good one. But it's one of many many good Wild Bill records. I love that burry tone! I know a trumpeter in Austin, Dave Bedrich, who shares a similar sound. Exciting to hear!
  4. Phil Woods Mosaic set

    It has been out on cd from Japan.
  5. All the Jamal records I have are far from quiet and quiet surfaces are what this music needs. The Mosaic set sounds fantastic.
  6. Left Bank releases upcoming

    Dan, Zev was very recently promoted to President of Resonance Reconds, I don't believe he is leaving but is expanding his involvement to other ventures as well.
  7. Left Bank releases upcoming

    Interesting news from Zev Feldman who has been producing releases for Resonance Records: THE JAZZ DETECTIVE GOES TO BALTIMORE! I had the pleasure Monday of interviewing and receiving some newly found tapes from my good friend, and original board member of The Left Bank Jazz Society, John Fowler. Over the next two years and beyond you’re going to see a stream of previously unissued LBJS recordings from a plethora of jazz greats come out, officially with clearances. The first is Etta Jones “A Soulful Sunday: Live at the Left Bank” (1972) featuring Cedar Walton, Sam Jones and Billy Higgins, due out this November on Reel To Real, my new venture with jazz amigo Cory Weeds. The Left Bank Jazz Society captured the spirit and community of the jazz scene from Baltimore from the early 1960’s thru the 1990’s. We’re going to document even further the great accomplishments of the LBJS. Maryland and this amazing organization left a profound mark on Jazz. I want to thank Mr. Fowler for putting his trust in me. More exciting news to come. All the way from Baltimore!
  8. The one thing I dislike about the recordings of this "era"--often the bass drum is way away from the rest of the kit. Bugs me.
  9. Charlie Rouse redux

    I think I like every Rouse leader and co-leader date I've heard. . . . But. . . I love Rouse with Monk. For me a great combination. Especially with Frankie Dunlop in the drum chair.
  10. That was one reason I thought of him too.
  11. As there seems to be someone else injecting his voice and perhaps his ideas into the mix on the untitled tune. . . I'll entertain the notion if it may be a Cal Massey tune. . . (so far I only have the single disc version, but Porter mentions "someone else" in his opinion not a band member ((and I presume not Thiel?)) audible on the alternates.)
  12. I'm in. I don't have a copy of the middle album, but do enjoy the first and last.
  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Kamasi Washington "Heaven and Earth." I'm actually listening to the hidden third disc. "Limbo"?
