  1. Willie Pickens - RIP

    What a shame. Another one of the greats. Will be missed. LWayne
  2. Tyshawn Sorey

    I have many CDs where he has been a sideman. Always enjoyed his interactions; particularly with Steve Lehman Octet. Since he has deservedly gained a lot of publicity recently, my question is where to start in his recorded catalogue as a leader? "Verisimilitude" seems to be pretty esoteric from the samples I have heard. Any recommendations? Thanks, LWayne
  3. Richie Cole - Latin Lover

    Saw the group premier the CD last Saturday. They played the album straight through in chronological order. Richie Cole still has a great tone, and it really comes through in a live setting. Enjoyable CD. Agreed that the song selection is "interesting" to say the least. LWayne

  8. Happy 3 year anniversary (or not)!
  9. R.I.P. John Abercrombie

    Now I am confused. Postings on Social Media attributed this to being a hoax. Quoted his representatives as stating that he is alive and well. But if ECM posted this news then that provides credibility. LWayne
  10. The best dressed man in jazz.

    What about Ron Carter? Surely a contender for best-dressed!
  11. Arthur Blythe R.I.P.

    R.I.P. Arthur. A true original and an engaging voice in jazz. You will be missed LWayne
  12. Opinions on Select "Recent" Releases

    I would also rate "Cities" by Chris Potter much higher than "Sirens", but I enjoy both. I have all the CDs that you mention. "Apex" is probably the best due to my admiration for Bunky Green. "Science Friction" has not really made much of an impression on me. LWayne
  13. Jim Hall-Red Mitchell

    What about the Red Mitchell/ Jim Hall CD release on ArtistShare? LWayne
  14. Michael Formanek Ensemble Kolossus

    One of my favorite records of this year.
  15. Bobby Hutcherson RIP

    Very sad news, whether expected or not. The man leaves behind a considerable legacy. God Bless Bobby!
