Video of our 20 month old granddaughter pounding on her toy xylophone and singing the alphabet song. Limited audience oviously but good stuff for me.

I was listening to Stanley Turrentine / Milt Jackson's album Cherry this morning, and absolutely loved this version of I Remember You

Beautiful! There aren't as many covers as you'd expect of this - one of Bird's favorite ballads.

love the first Foxes Fox CD - will get the new one soon.

maybe my most played Evan Parker recording over the last few years.

Louis Moholo-Moholo is superb on that recording

Wonderful group...the first time I ever played with Louis was when Evan asked me to sub in this group when Steve Beresford couldn't make a show...and in fact, I'd never even met him until that point, although I have the honour of doing a few things with him now...but that was some kind of baptism of fire!

Nine Inch Nails: Closer.

One of the greatest grooves ever! If your toes don't tap wildly and your shoulders start moving involuntarily, the doctor will recommend a Jaegerbomber and a turn or two on the dancefloor!

Can's 'Waiting for the Streetcar' from the recently issued Lost Tapes

Malcolm Moooney at his insane best ranting for almost the whole 10 minutes with a groove that is right up there with Can's best.

Actually, one heard and seen - from the Jazz Icons 4 Bonus DVD

Blue Lou - Coleman Hawkins, Benny Carter,Teddy Wilson, Bob Cranshaw, Louis Bellson - London, England, Dec. 1, 1966. Very good late-period Hawkins.

Utterly bewitched today listening to Christy Moore singing 'Shine on You Crazy Diamond'. A grand, technicolour piece if ever there was one, stripped down to a simple, gentle, poignant ballad. I love the original but Christy makes the song his own by simply not even trying to approach the scale of the original.

Comes from here:

Lee Morgan's "Ceora" from the above album, largely on the strength of Eric Alexander's superb solo against a big band background. Have always felt that the absence of an own name big band album (AFAIK) from Eric's massive discography is a regrettable omission.

Two this week I heard on early morning radio that stopped me in my tracks. Don't know the performers but they were versions of:



  • Bach: Violin Concerto No 1 - slow movement
  • Mozart: Serenade 10 - 'Gran Partita' - slow movement

I've know both for yonks but somehow they hit extra hard this week.
