  1. A small boxset with only three CDs. The sound is so-so, but the performance is first rate.
  2. Jim Hall 'Jazz Guitar' on Pacific Jazz

    I also have that edition from that time and like it a lot. Though I donĀ“t know about the edited/unedited status of the tracks. Oh sorry, now I see that post was from 2016 and I think I got it at least 10 years earlier.
  3. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    And this is pure coincidence. But today I grabbed this out and am now terribly impressed with Us Three, the track. This is the first Parlan trio properly. I feel I like Parlan more now than when I got it. I should be listening to this more than I do. Or Headin South, for that matter. The Parlan trio backed by Ray Barretto:
  4. Stanley Turrentine & Horace Parlan

  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Nice! With a cover shot by Francis Wolf, I assume, that was also used as the cover for, if I remember correctly, Lewis Porter's book The Birth of the Cool.
  10. Columbia Groovy Songbirds

    Thanks for the answer: I heard references to a garden but maybe didn't pay too much attention to the lyrics. I too have a green thumb.
  11. Columbia Groovy Songbirds

    Grand! But pot song?
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    First And now I have a faible for Valle, I must admit it. But while the first is really Brazilian, the second is clearly tailored for the US market. On Verve and with English lyrics. Something I deeply dislike in my Brazilian music.
  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I've got that one as a CD. Very good.
