  2. Pacific Jazz Labelography Update

    What a treasure trove! Great to have it all on the one site - many thanks!
  3. Lennie Tristano - The Duo Sessions

    From the Dot Times site: https://www.dottimerecords.com/news/new-legends-series-featuring-jazz-icon-lennie-tristano/ Lennie Tristano’s daughter Carol Tristano exclaims “I am very happy to be working with Dot Time Records for the inclusion of Lennie Tristano in their “Legends Series”. Lennie’s musical legacy is one of beauty and innovation. I am excited that a treasure trove of previously unreleased music from my father will now be made available.” Great news – perhaps there will be more to follow … there have been rumors of a variety of tapes ...
  4. I'm surprised by what he said about his "Tenor Madness" solo. I personally think it's one of his best. It certainly shows Rollins as completely in control of the situation ...
  5. Great Label - what a treasure trove! I did a quick net search but it would appear to be inactive ... anybody know if it's still going?
  6. Post a pic

    Love it !!!
  7. Unheard Bird!

    Very interesting - keep us informed.

    Much appreciated! To make the situation more complex, it seems there were at least two, possibly three takes made of this song before one was used for this LP, including at least one with strings and no vibes at all ... anyway, a fine solo.
  9. Emil Richards 1932-2019

    RIP. Would anyone know if that's Emil who plays that very nice vibes solo on Ella's version of "The Christmas Song" from around '60 on Verve LP MGV 4042 "Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas" , apparently with the Frank DeVol Orchestra ...
  10. Great Bird - Chorus after chorus from a long Cafe Society jam session 1950. Personnel: Tony Scott/ Bird/ Dick Hyman/ Brew Moore/ Chuck Wayne or Mundell Lowe/ Leonard Gaskin/ Ed Shaunessy. Bird takes the 2nd solo after Scott and comes back for 4s with Shaunessy.
  11. Beautiful listening and writing, Larry. I think most people who listen to jazz seriously these days recognize Chet as one of the great trumpet players - but his vocal abilities are still underrated. While it does not always happen, the best of his improvisations in this form (scat or with the added difficulty of phrasing with words) are astonishing in their inventiveness and musicality - “magical mystery tour” indeed!
  12. Volumes 1 & 2 are certainly early. What kind of recording techniques were employed then and how do they sound?
  13. Lennie Tristano used it effectively on solo recordings at one stage in his career - not with a bass player (as I recall).
  14. Anton Webern's genitals

    It seems not. According to the original passage, -- he was conducting in shirtsleeves only -- .
