  4. Stan Kenton Live: any recommendations please?

    Amazing resource for the 52/53 Kenton band. See: Index of /OTRRLib/Library Files/S Series/Stan Kenton Collection. What else is in this library?
  5. Buddy Rich Big Band

    Conte is young - or old?
  6. Nice experience with the Jamal Mosaic set

    How about the pianist - or was she damning with faint praise?
  7. Warne Marsh on youtube.com

    Any details? Just get a "Video Unavailable" message here in Japan.
  8. Musings on how music means

    Isn't this what Tristano was seeking, on the "feeling" side of his "feeling/ emotion dichotomy? He called it "playing from the id" (in the Freudian term of the day). Interesting discussion ...

  11. Charlie Rouse redux

    Did Monk ever really "develop" after about 1948. As he became fashionable in the 50's his sidemen (at least on record) got better, his music was orchestrated etc. but the tunes and the piano style were already there ... The changes that occurred in the late 50's, 60's did not affect his playing in any way. As be-bop based straight ahead jazz (of which Monk's music was an idiosyncratic offshoot) fell out of "fashion" in the 60's, Monk went with it. Musically he was pretty conservative (in his own way, of course) ... Q
  12. Charlie Rouse redux

    That's beautifully said. Q
  13. Great Finds

    Thanks for that. It certainly sounds like Billy Bauer on guitar, which would probably date it as 1946/7 in NY. Unfortunately I have no idea who the accordionist might be, but he can play! Q
  14. Great Finds

    Remarkable finds. I heard that Lennie sometimes played accordion in the early days. Just maybe he put it on disc. Can you hear the piano behind the accordion? Q.
  15. Clare Fischer Discography

    Know his work mainly from the very fine "Thesaurus" from 1969 which I picked up for the Warne Marsh solos (regardless of 'behind the beat'). But recently came across a CD version of his "Extensions" (1963) which IMO is a remarkable recording - for the originality of the arrangements, the overall musicianship and for the intriguing tenor of little heard Jerry Coker (author of Patterns in Jazz). CD sound by Jonathan Horwich is excellent.
