One of my favourite live albums from about my start, I mean the first year when I discovered all that great music of the 40´s. I must admit I bought it mostly for Fats Navarro , but listen also to the great Roy Eldrigde organization, with the wonderful Flip Phillips. And dig how Eldridge on "How High the Moon" in the outing "Ornithology". Roy was so much ahead of his time. He was the natural link from swing to bop, wasn´t he ? 

 

And talking about jazz of the forties, that´s what I´m listening to right now. A lot of great music, vintage bop.

Miles Davis, "Live/Evil" Sony SACD (stereo/quad--stereo layer) disc 2, again. . . because I love Bartz on this and it was still near the transport.

Followed by Freddie Hubbard "Breaking Point" Blue Note/Analogue Productions SACD. Clifford Jarvis gives this a unique feel. . . .

Then on to both discs of Miles Davis "Live/Evil," the new stereo/quad SACD from Sony (stereo layer). I love this music so much, have since the 2 LP set was first released. 

Then on to Flora Purim "Stories to Tell," Milestone LP. Another favorite from the 'seventies on. Just a wonderful album.

Pretty sure that Live/Evil was my first Miles album in the early 70s when I started getting into jazz. Took a while to 'understand' it, but became one of my favorites, too. I still have the CD, too ... and maybe the vinyl.

I like that Flora too, and was a huge fan back in her Milestone years. I like Butterfly Dreams a bit better, but she was a real force when she emerged with the first RTF.

Prysock/Basie - supreme and succinct, with just enough Jaws to not just hit the bullseye, but to go all the way through it.

Apparently it found a market? Sure hope so!

I mean, hey, this is totally what it is, if you know what I mean.

Grown folks' music. No whining, no angst, no reveling in the suffering, just matter-of-fact truth about it.

Is Arthur Prysock falling off the radar, like Billy Eckstine? That should not be allowed to happen.

The CD includes the three cuts released by Old Town as part of their reciprocity agreement with Verve. They might be the best of the bunch!

Richard "Groove" Holmes' Comin' on Home is the subject of today's entry on my 70s jazz blog.

Earlier this evening, I also added a bit of text to the previous two entries, which had been "bare bones."

 

I have a few of his albums but, in all honesty, wasn’t familiar with this one. Thanks for the YouTube link. I need to seek this album out.

Carla Bley, Andy Sheppard, and Steve Swallow - Life Goes On (ECM 2669, 2020).  Carla Bley - piano; Andy Sheppard - soprano and tenor sax; Steve Swallow - bass.  Solid playing all around, but Andy Sheppard really sings.
