I remember reading about his UK touring of that time in Jazz Journal. About the same time Al Haig was touring over here I think.

Yes, I saw Haig too, "saw" being the operative word as Band on the Wall was so full that I got inside the street door but no further - the maestro was almost out of earshot! :huh:

an intense, endless seduction totally lacking in the ability to consummate.

I saw Albany play in the early 70s - solo (and untuned) piano in an upstairs room in a Manchester pub. Appearance arranged by British jazz entrepreneur Tony Martin. Did anyone else see the master live or am I the only member of that in-crowd?

I knew Joe pretty well and saw him frequently - he even had a regular solo gig for a while at the top of the World Trade Center - also, he played at my wedding in 1982. I loved Joe, though he could be difficult, and he had these little gaps that caused him to get lost in the music from time to time. I still have some nice tapes of him playing solo. Funny, smart guy who just did too many drugs (he enjoyed telling me about the horse tranguilizer he took, and about sharing needles with Bird).

Awesome Red. Actually, there is very little Red that isn't.

Today's listening (so far):

91-v3ibOL1L._SS400_.jpg

Still strange (at times) and wonderful, pointing very much in the direction of an imaginary Weather Report without Joe Zawinul.

As funky as the "Second Great Quintet" got, no?

Anything with Herbie and Hutch together is special.

Inspired by soulpope's post above, I'm now playing the MJQ's At Music Inn with Jimmy Giuffre.

I have the Atlantic Jazzlore series LP, as below:

This was the first MJQ record I ever bought.

That is a great cover pic.

Now playing:

Gonzalo Rubalcaba - Diz: I inexplicably keep forgetting to listen to another Rubalcaba album with Haden and DeJohnette that I bought maybe a year ago, which is embarrassing.  As a result, when I saw several Rubalcaba albums for $2, I limited myself to just this one with Ron Carter.  I should have just picked up the rest, but sometimes I try to rein in my acquisitions for more manageable listening.
