From the Making Lemonade Out of Lemons Dept. -- If you are suffering through part of the heat wave right now, the hot, sweaty weather does provide the perfect atmosphere for listening to a version of Porgy and Bess.

Disc 1 of 2.  I had not listened to this version of P&B in probably 20 years.  Mel Torme as Porgy and yet somehow, we are not in Bizarroworld.  It's hard to know what to make of this at times, making the reassuring presence of Al "Jazzbo" Collins as the narrator very welcome indeed.  Gosh, I miss Jazzbo.

Tonight this seemed to perfectly fit my mood. You need to be in a certain place to "get" this.

Sonny Rollins Newk's Time (Blue Note 75th anniversary SHM-CD)

From all BN albums Rollins made, THIS ONE is my favourite. And one of the highlights is the Rollins Philly J.J. duo "Surrey with the Fringe on Top".

I love this. Una Mas is a tune I love to play myself. We did it a few years ago, usually as the last number of the first set....
