What vinyl are you spinning right now??

Maybe. But the point is just that people sometimes give off a vibe.

Not saying that was the case with Haig, but it could have been. "Race" is certainly an issue (still!), but it's also any easy blanket-blame that can be used to deflect closer scrutiny of an individual.

Besides, where/with whom did Haig want to work that he couldn't because he was white? Did he want a gig with King Curtis or Miles or who, exactly? The Club Baby Grand? House gig at the Apollo?

"Crow Jim...." a construct created by Stan Kenton and Leonard Feather. Proceed accordingly.

now playing: Jon Eardley / Al Haig - Stablemates (Spotlite, 1977)

easily recommended, they both sound so pretty... (and Art Themen sounds pretty good, too)

Amen to that.

Not sayin' that it didn't happen.  I'm just sayin' . . .

Besides, lots of jazz musicians -- bebop musicians -- were on the outs during the 60s.  I've been listening to Duke Jordan today. He didn't make ANY records from 1962 to 1973. He was driving a taxi to support himself. 

Lots of factors at play in that.

I'd be cautious about simplifying it as a race issue -- especially in Haig's case.

My 2 cents.

Quintet Boy Raaijmakers

He may mostly be remembered as a Free Jazz trumpeter but this album is straight hard bop from Nijmegen 74 with a Fender Rhodes in the center

I have that one kicking around somewhere; can't recall very much about it, sadly.

Is this one of those double albums they had from Prestige during the 70´s ? This one features the early sessions 1949/50 ? Those with Bud, the sides with John Lewis and J.J.Johnson ...... I have the LP with maybe the original cover, that´s some strange cover with some "angry birds flyin around".

Helen Merrill / Dick Katz - A Shade of Difference (Landmark)

Originally released on Milestone in 1968.  This is my first listen. Just picked it up today.

Really digging it, so far.

When I moved back to Chicago in 1975 Don DeMichael (a hero for me) asked me to join the board of the rejuvenated Jazz Institute of Chicago. Helen was a member of the board. She was an involved member until she moved away. Nothing but "props" from me.
