Knocky Parker and his Backwoods Boys (Audiophile). An enjoyable, pretty lightweight LP from 1964. The interesting personnel includes both New Orleans clarinetist Raymond Burke and 23-year-old Delbert McClinton on harmonica - his first recording session, I think. As usual with Ewing Nunn's Audiophile label, the sound is excellent.

The Paris Quartet - Jazz a Confronto 28 - (Horo)

Jeanneau, Graillier, Jenny-Clarke and Romano diving into some Coltrane-esque modal hard-bop regions. Not particularly ground-breaking and maybe a bit anachronistic for the late 70s, but nice.

The Sunny Meadows Radio Show - 1929 (Sunbeam). An extremely interesting collection of very early radio transcription discs - in this case the "Sunny Meadows" show sponsored by Meadows Manufacturing, a company that made washing machines. Side one features Ray Miller's hot band, with Muggsy Spanier featured pretty extensively. The liner notes imply that this side reproduces one complete show, which it doesn't. The notes also claim that Miller's guitarist, who plays one single-string solo, is Eddie Lang, which is definitely not the case.

Side two, featuring a pseudonymous band calling themselves the the Dixie Two-Steppers, is less enchanting. Again, the notes imply that this is a variation or sub-group of the Ray Miller orchestra, but I seriously doubt it. Next time I take this one off the shelf, I'll try to remember to just play side one.

I love Corky Laing's drumming on "Never in my Life." There's some cool bass on that record too.

One album out of a series of 5 on the Japanese Venus records. All 5 are ballad albums. Superb fidelity.

I had actually forgotten all about that - early incarnation of Trio 3 + Crispell. Wonder if they'll revisit?

Very much so - top-notch band that blends well, playing excellent compositions (five by Workman; one by Crispell). I was going to say that I particularly enjoyed Crispell's playing, but that's not fair, because everyone is great. This was apparently reissued on CD with one more track and a different running order (I assume to restore the original playing order of this live date), but I'm more that satisfied with my very quiet, well-pressed vinyl copy.

Nice one.  I was there, my first jazz concert.  The Couriers were supporting Dave Brubeck.

had this for years but I'm still undecided regarding it's merit. Slightly fuzzy recorded sound doesn't  help.
