What's To Ya from The House of Blue Lights by Eddie Costa with Wendell Marshall and Paul Motian. 1959 and all over the place - from Tristano to Taylor to Evans to Garland, but always EC. Wish he had made 20 more piano trio records.

"Autumn Serenade" from John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman. Coltrane's solo is spine-chilling! :excited:

Actually two, and they may come from last week:

- Scrapple From the Apple on Jim Hall Live (Horizon/Verve)- it's not just Hall's great playing but the interaction of the whole group that really grabs me. Collective improvisation (without being 'free') at the very highest level. No wonder Hall loved this group. (And yet another incentive to think about getting the Hall set on artistshare, in spite of the $$$)

- Blues for Philly Joe from Sonny Rollins' Newks's Time (Blue Note) - always loved this performance; one of my favorite jazz tracks of all time.

A hard swinging version of John Coltrane's "Red Planet" from c403589x340.jpg. Outstanding tenor solo by Chris Potter. In fact, the whole CD is very good with an excellent rhythm section of Gary Mazzaroppi (bass ) and Glenn Davis (drums).

Honorable mention- "Gloria" from a private CDR of the Clarke-Boland Big Band, May 16, 1968, Stuttgart, featuring a wonderful tenor solo by Tony Coe.

"Brownie Speaks" from The Clifford Brown Memorial Album (Blue Note), with an amazing trumpet solo that must be still sending trumpeters to the 'shed nearly 60 years later. I can imagine Lou Donaldson waiting to solo and thinking, "Oh man, I hope my solo is going to be OK. I don't want to screw up this take." He didn't, but it's really all Brownie. Wonderful.

"I shall be released" The Band from Music from Big Pink.

Hadn't listened to the album for nigh on twenty years and was inspired to by the sad thread about Levon Helm. Could've chosen many of the tracks but the vocal performance on this track really resonated

"Machado" from the Mike Ledonne album "Common Ground". Some nice work by Ledonne and Kenny Washington on that track.

Bluebird B-6918

Clarence Williams' Washboard Band

Top of the Town/More Than That

Didn't care for Eva Taylor's vocal, but the ensemble playing is fantastic! See this lineup: http://www.redhotjazz.com/cwwbb.html. Easy tempos with a lot of New Orleans feel, even though Top of the Town is about Manhattan.

"You'll Know the First Time" from Sounds for the 60's by Onzy Matthews. Overall, this album isn't as good as Blues With a touch of Elegance, but this beautiful, moody piece got to me.

Daniel Johnston: Story of an Artist. For some reason, this song knocked me flat on my butt today.

"The sun don't shine in your tv" What a great line.

Ralome - Plaid. Exquisite use of guitars in an electronic track

Zimbabwe - Miles Davis. Still IMO one of the most intense and coherent live recordings. The intro still gives me chills 16 years on.

In New Orleans St Charles Hotel 1936 during Little Brother Montgomery’s notable run of 23 tracks laid down in a day, jazz band banjo luminary Guesnon asks if Bro will play behind him on a song he’s written - his first recording, and on vocals only in a great outmoded manner.. not everyones cup of tea but I love it - (the sound quality here is poor)

Merzbow - "Noritsukehousei" (from Japanese Birds, No. 2)

Incredible stuff - he's featuring live drums a lot more lately, and a lot of guitar-ish feedback. This is the heaviest track off an excellent album. The whole series is fantastic and stands as one of the best things he's ever done IMHO.
