From the album Tim Hardin 3: Live in Concert

Stunning singing. Sad he left us too soon. Him and Hank, both.

I love this record. (Though the band gets up so much steam on some songs they almost blow by him.)

This week I was tempted to jump back into the Europe '72 box set again but decided to listen to a series of discs compiled for me about five years ago by Dr. Orchid of great Pigpen performances and today I've been concentrating on versions of "Easy Wind." Just love that song and it inspired some great stretching out.

Just listened to the track "Diggin' In" from the Dexter Gordon box set of Columbia recordings. This tune is seriously joyful and swinging with Eddie Jefferson vocalizing and wonderful solos by Dexter Gordon and Woody Shaw. This track brought a very large smile to my face.

The wittily-titled "Parker 51" from Stan Getz at Storyville (1951).

Getz, Jimmy Raney and Al Haig zoom through "Cherokee/Koko" changes.

Got hold of the VJC Carnegie Hall Concert by Ellington (Jan. 13, 1948) - fantastic! And that's the cue... "Fantazm" with Carney on bass clarinet! Wow! :wub:

"Eight Miles High" by The Byrds. Sometimes re-living an old favorite can be just as stimulating as hearing something new.

Not just a track, but a whole friggin' album: McCoy Tyner NIGHTS OF BALLADS AND BLUES. Certaintly not his most essential recordings, and nowhere near as intense as his later solo work and his work with Trane. But as the jazz equivalent of comfort food, it simply can't be beat!

This week a non jazz track, from Pink Floyd's "Animals" the track "Pigs(Three Different Ones)". Listening to this album was like revisiting a long last friend. I kind of forgot just how much I enjoyed this album. Very underrated, IMO. It's a shame classic rock radio, doesn't play this more often.

'Stupidly Happy' by XTC off Wasp Star. Ended the week on a big high, heard a fragment on a UK TV advert and it just fitted my mood.
