Inspired by viewing 'Play Misty For Me' for about the 101st time since I first saw it on the box last night ( :cool: ) listening to KRML Carmel on the net. Just hoping that Jessica Walter doesn't come round.. :unsure:

Jazz Library from BBC Radio 3 on the iPlayer: Alan Skidmore

Sorry you missed it, Sidewinder. The more recent selections were truly impressive. Re Coltrane-influenced British tenormen, Dave O'Higgins has received recent praise for his performance alongside Eric Alexander, but those Skidmore tracks, plus hearing him a couple of years ago with the Tubby Hayes Legacy Big Band, leave me thinking he's The Man in this department! :excited:

Yes, he's brilliant. A good article about him in this month's 'Jazzwise' (he's just turning 70). The first time I saw him live many years ago he was with Elvin Jones' Jazz Machine, along with Pat LaBarbara in a 2-tenor front line. Skid mentions this gig in the article.

That band was incendiary !

In terms of music, no real change under the new management. The only difference is the early jazz gets mixed in with the rest; it used to stack up at the start of the programme (to allow dirty boppers to switch on 15 minutes later?).

Too much from the trad revival this week, I thought. Perhaps Geoffrey Smith, available online tomorrow, will be a corrective, as his theme this week is Roy Haynes.

Now moved on to Geoffrey Smith's Jazz. This week's topic is Jimmie Lunceford - great stuff! I'll have to be getting out my one and only Lunceford again:

A lovely Scott Hamilton 'Stella By Starlight' followed by...

Well, Andy Sheppard's playing on 'I Wish I Knew' is lovely too - but the drum machine laying down a rhythmic straight-jacket underneath is straight for Room 101.
