"Bag's Groove" both takes from the album by the same name. Bought the RVG and kept going back to these. Though I've known these takes for years and years they always bring something to me when they're on.

Yes, great! Some of the most enigmatic Monk on record on one of those takes. Milt Jackson on peak form, too.

Yusef Lateef 'Delilah' from 'Live at Pep's'. Always good to listen to that short gem.

The day's still young, but...

"Straight No Chaser", bonus track from Harold Land's "Take Aim". What a wake-up call!

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.

Been listening to the Dean Benedetti Bird CDs this week. Standouts for me at the moment are *Sweet Geogia Brown*, No. 19 on disc 1 - that pure, inventive, swinging/ driving *Lady be Good* feeling... and *All the Things You Are*, no. 13 on disc 5, where Bird's unbelievable reinventions after Kenny Hagood's vocal send shivers down the spine ...

Tal Farlow. Little Girl BLue... something about Farlow's tone that always brightens me. Late last night, Farlow was a nice antidote to a day that had some tension.

'Louisiana' by the Bob Brookmeyer Quintet off of 'Traditionalism Revisted.' Nothing earth-shattering here, but it has this infectious swing to it, which I largely attribut to Joe Benjamin's bass playing.

Thanks for demonstrating, over and over, how much of an asshole you can be.

Well done!

Not jazz, but I can't get Coldplay's new "Viva La Vida" out of my head. Great tune, with Eno producing!

"Ancien combatant" by Balla & ses Balladins, from the album "The Syliphone years" - Sterns. I've actually had this track for many years on the Syliphone compilation "Discotheque 74" but, having got the Balla set, hearing it in the context of the band's other work from that time has pushed it in a little further (or is it farther?). Anyway, three cheers for the old soldier.

"Be-Bop" from The Sonny Clark Trio (BN)

The music seems to just flow out of Sonny Clark on this one. Sounds as if he could have played on and on, if he had chosen to.
