I really like that one, Peter. A 12 bar blues on altered changes, with a key change at the beginning of every chorus - or so it sounds to my amateur ear. ^_^

Hadn't heard it for a while, but I really enjoyed "West Side Story Medley" from

The CD sound is great, the band is tight and inspired, the soloists are good, Rich's solo is shorter than the usual live versions. A great Bill Reddie arrangement. Lead trumpeter Bobby Shew left his blood on this chart (literally, according to later Rich lead trumpet players).

OK - 2nd time in a week.

"Easy Living" fromtumblr_inline_mu07fw97rV1rxv6dg.jpg

Could have chosen "Come Rain or Come Shine", equally as good.

Love this CD. Can't file it away just yet.

I love that Frank Wess CD, as well. Have u heard 201? Am curious if it's as good. Hard to believe, but you never know.

Just listening to this, which blew me away. Not jazz, but still great.

"Hey Harold" from this new SHM-CD.

There's weather reports, and then there's this seismic forecast. Just sounded and felt so so good this week.

Remember seeing/hearing Rich's band play that suite live at Ronnie Scotts..

Listening highlight of a week filled with listening highlights - The multiple takes of 'Keen & Peachy' on the Woody Herman Columbia Mosaic last night.

Eva Taylor with Clarence Williams' Blue Five - Cake Walking Babies From Home. Taylor sings one chorus on this 1925 jazz masterpiece. The rest of the record is a no-holds-barred duel between Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet, each of whom plays as if his life depended on it.

Haven't listened to it for a long time, but Pete La Roca's drumming on that track is still fresh in my memory.

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

Yes, it's really nice. Jimmy Forrest is great on it, too.

Track 7 of BFT123. Thanks Tom, it's bloody wonderful!!!!

"Angel Eyes" 1979 Art Pepper + Russ Freeman + Bob Magnusson + Carl Burnett (Atlas LP Bill Watrous "Funk n`Fun") - this is only one of two quartet tracks on said album featuring otherwise Bill Watrous.......the band is execellent, Art Pepper is magnificent but the real highlight here is Russ Freeman`s solo......beyond belief.....then Art Pepper reenters, but much too soon his wailing is faded out.......I would have begged to make this last longer....every single second.....

The backing track version of "Thank You" by Led Zeppelin from the deluxe edition of Led Zeppelin II. All these work-in-progress versions are fascinating to listen to, like taking a time machine back to the studio.
