Best track you heard all week

Last track on Other Violets

I believe that tenor playing at the end might be the last John Tchicai on record and it is stunning and almost otherworldly

It is preceded by a studied yet intense drum solo by Tim Daisy and the tune by Jeb Bishop is post bop swing and groove and it's finest

Synergy! I just ordered this today after it popped into my mind last night. $5.50.

damn, that's got to be the bargain of the day!

This is lovely - comes at the end of the third disc of Jordi Savall's cruise round various cultures of the Med:

What language is that in? Catalan?

Not sure. I don't have the liner notes. It appears to be a contemporary song with music by Savall - so it might be Catalan. The rest of the set is trad. arr. from across the Med but this one seems to be a specifically written song.

Think it must be Catalan when I read this:

Notice he has the same Christian name as a controversial jazz record entrepreneur from Barcelona. :w

"You Don't Know What Love Is" sung and played by Eliane Elias from her Chet Baker tribute cd, "I Thought About You." It got me. It's a lonely time.

Willie Walker: "South Carolina Rag" from Mama Let Me Lay It on Your (Yazoo)

Willie Walker only recorded a handful of sides before he passed, but they were enough to make his reputation as one of the finest guitarists in the history of the blues.

From James Brown's "Soul Pride: The Instrumentals"--The King

Tighten Up (with an extended jazz trumpet

solo by Waymon Reed, which is exciting)

Waymon Reed had an interesting career, for a musician few people have heard of. Worked with Ira Sullivan, James Brown, Count Basie, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis, All Star Trumpet Spectacular and Sarah Vaughan (to whom he was married), before dying of cancer.

Nice leader date on Artists House, IIRC

"The Night Has a Thousand Eyes" -- 11 plus minutes of joyous, uplifting, hard swing.

From:

nick-brignola-like-old-times-20120821114

This music is 20 years old. Hard to believe that Nick, John and Dick have left us.

Of all the wonderful Nick Brignola CD's on Reservoir this one may be my favorite.

Handel "Eternal Source of Light Divine"

I believe this is something of a lollipop cropping up on Handel vocal discs, baroque trumpet records, general classical favourite records and in it's setting in a birthday Ode for Queen Anne.

I have it on a few discs but it stopped me in my tracks on this new one:

The way the trumpet (cornet? HIP thingy?) and voice interweave just makes the world stand still.

"Passion Flower" from

Not only is Hodges exquisite but the band plays the arrangement superbly and the whole performance is enhanced by the fine recording quality.
