I wish he would keep his website up to date. I have no idea if he's touring anywhere near my area. Sonny Fortune is the same way.

Barry's Bop Quintet (so called because the three hornmen met at a Barry Harris masterclass in Rome) at Malcolm Frazer's house last Sunday afternoon. Trumpeter Lewis R Taylor is aged 21 and guitarist Jack Kinsella 19 and both are students at Birmingham Conservatoire. So there's hope for the younger generation after all!

I'm going to see Pharoah in October at the Rialto Theater here in Atlanta. Really looking forward to it! :)

It was nice but even 5 years ago, you got about 50% talk, 50% music with Benny (and Lou Donaldson).  Now it is about 25% music.  Still definitely worth it to see one of the last giants (and these at least were new stories for me).  He did play "Horizon Ahead" off a fairly recently album, and the rest were his standards - "Whisper Not" and "I Remember Clifford."  They closed with Coltrane's Mr PC, taken at a fairly fast clip.

Amazing how Sonny Fortune used to (and sound likes he still does) appear unexpectedly at gigs (at least to me). I had a couple of experiences like that when he was with Elvin Jones. Charles Tolliver sideman appearances were similar.

The Charlie Parker Jazz Festival is (again) looking good for this year.  Sunday, Joshua Redman and Lou Donaldson will be worth missing work for.  Louis Hayes on Saturday is another.

THE SUN RA ARKESTRA PLAYED THE ECLIPSE FESTIVAL IN ORGEON AND I DIDNT KNOW ABOUT IT.  IT WOULD OF BEEN A 350 MILE/PER-WAY TRIP, BUT I WOULD OF STRONGLY CONSIDERED IT.  MY ONE CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE THE SUN RA ARKESTRA AND I MISSED IT.  MY ONE CHANCE. :(:(

 

A reveler dances to the Sun Ra Arkestra as the Eclipse comes to an end.

 

THAT COULD OF BEEN ME DANCING NEXT TO DANNY RAY THOMPSON.   DOES THAT OREGON HIPPIE CHICK EVEN KNOW SHE IS DANCING NEXT TO DANNY RAY THOMPSON?

Eclipse-watchers look at the sun while the Sun Ra Arkestra plays behind them.

 

Marshall Allen, legendary bandleader, and a gaggle of galactic sungazers.

u know it dog!

to tell u the truth the trip does look like it would be a little nuts, with all the traffic down there that day + the distance in a weird direction, like in the middle of the state which ive never been to (350 mi up or down I-5 would of bothered me way less)---

Yesterday at the Bedford Blues Festival I enjoyed: Larry Lampkin, Ally Venable Band, Nikki Hill, and Ronnie Earl and the Broadcasters.

I wasn't previously familiar with Nikki Hill; it was hot in Bedford, but her band was hotter.

Does Berne still play with just socks on his feet, or has he graduated to clogs?

I'm excited to be seeing Bill Charlap, peter and Kenny Washington this Saturday at the Vanguard. It's been 15 or more years since i  heard him in a club.

Get there early to get your preferred seating. I have been there twice and both times they had a nice turnout. I thought about taking that drive, but I am more likely to head up to Goshen, MA to catch Tom Rainey Trio tonight - if I go anywhere.

I'll be there by 7:15 or so. Show starts at 8:00. I hope that's early enough.

Enjoy that, Steve. He's over in London in November so hopefully he'll be nicely in the groove by then...I saw Moholo-Moholo's 4 Blokes at the weekend. The most intense and joyous two hours of music I've witnessed in a long time
