Art Pepper plays "Summertime". MS-15, disk #3. Carl Perkins (at the pianist chair) is doing an amazing job too.

Yes, that is a great one!

My favourite for the week is the Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra playing "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square", arranged by Ed Neumeister, solos by Kenny Werner and Dick Oatts from this album:

Miles Davis: Ascent from Directions. I found it incredibly beautiful last night, especially Wayne Shorter's soprano sax solo.

Sonny Clark w/ Ike Quebec, "Deep In A Dream" off Leapin' & Lopin' which I listened to for the first time. Exceptional, like everything Ike did at the time.

Well said. This phrase "Exceptional, like everything he did at the time." applies equally as well to either player.

I've been transferred stuff from several portable hard drives onto a new hard drive bought solely to back up music. Still have a long way to go, but most of the core stuff is secure now -- or at least saved in a couple of places.

Anyway, revisiting some old favorites.

"Work" performed by Chris Spedding & Peter Frampton from Side 4 of the double LP "That's The Way I Feel Now - A Tribute to Thelonious Monk"

And now "Walk Spirit, Talk Spirit" which is Side 4 of McCoy Tyner's Enlightenment LP.

Hattie Hudson: "Doggone My Good Luck Soul" from Before the Blues Vol. 2 (Yazoo) - mainly for Will Tyson's piano accompaniment

and

Blind Joe Taggart: "Been Listening All the Day" from Before the Blues Vol. 2 (Yazoo) - Maybe the races weren't supposed to mix in the old south, but their musics sure did.

K-Man's Crew from the Joe Locke/David Hazeltine Quartet CD titled Mutual Admiration Society.

Very nice. Those Mutual Admiration Society albums are pretty nifty.

The track that's been hitting the right notes with me lately is from Paul Lieberman's new album Ibeji. The song is "Azul No Verde e Amarelo". Reminds me of Don Pullen's African-Brazilian Connection work on Blue Note.

"Hot Sauce" by Elmo Hope, from Trio and Quintet on BN. It's simultaneously sophisticated and primal, and couldn't be by anyone other than Mr. Hope.

Cajun great from the 60s-70s Doris Matte, J'aimerais danser avec toi. He could really sing in that Belton Richard style. Sounds like the melody Dewey Balfa copped for his song J'ai pleurer.

Pack it Up, from Pretenders II.

Cranked this album up this weekend and it really socked me hard. Memories and body rushes and butt-shakingly so.

Pack it Up just seems like a cathartic anthem for any new venture, an avalanch release of frustration. This track, and this album, I feel show how Chrissie Hynde had taken the Hendrix psychedelic-pop template and revitalized it at the close of 'seventies.

Gonna go with "Tin Tin Deo" by Junior Mance from the album "Happy Time" Great chemistry here between Junior and Mickey Roker who is outstanding on this track. I've played this a number of times the past several days.

"Round Lake Burnt Hills - a very interesting Peter Leitch compostion from this very interesting CD. Listened to the whole CD 5 times in a row on a recent car trip.

Excellent jazz music.

Jan Kopinski - "Dream Road"

It's from a soundtrack he did back in, hm, I want to say 2003. I only discovered Kopinski recently when emusic began offering several of his albums (as "new releases"). Dream Road is so heartbreakingly beautiful, I get a little teary-eyed just listening to it when I'm in a sad mood.

You can stream the song on his site...

Foster is on soprano on this track but Wess steals the show with a wonderful tenor solo.

The whole album is :tup .

"Base on Balls" from this, especially for Horace Silver's solo, not to mention Doug Watkins' beautiful sounding bass:

Yes yes! This just might be THE song to use to describe the sound of Blue Note in the 50's!

Very interesting and most excellent album! I remember hearing "Song for Jobim" for the very first time and just feeling that all was right with the world.
