Maybe from Larry Young I expected something else, something more like the Albums he made before for BN. (Unity)

I've REALLY been enjoying Of Love and Peace lately. It's hit me hard -- in a good way. But you're right that it's quite different than his Blue Notes before it.

My toddler is slowly killing me with sleep deprivation.  This is restoring some bloodflow to my head.

My two year old is a self professed Herbie Hancock fan. It can be done.

My daughter will be 3 in February.  She heard Wayne Shorter, Lee Konitz, Larry Willis, Jack DeJohnette, Chucho Valdes and other greats live while still in the womb, so I started her early.  :D  She routinely asks for Sonny Stitt and Joe Pass, so those two Mosaics see a lot of play here. 

When I told her today that I was going to put on the Miles classic, 'Round About Midnight (I've been in a Coltrane mood), she said, 'Listen to Monk!'  We then listened to the Monk/Coltrane Carnegie Hall concert.  Never has a compromise worked out so well.  She then said 'Coltrane' with a mouthful of lunch during a solo.  She was dancing to the Dolphy album, by the way.

Although I was disappointed that the Deteoit Jazz Fest shifted to streaming this year (Abdullah Ibrahim was originally scheduled), it was fun talking to her about the music while streaming a few sets.  She'll tell me what instrument is soloing and what instrument she wants to hear, which helps me narrow down our listening queue.  She'll also turn a plate over and 'play drums' with a knife and fork.

Fine work by the late Gary Peacock on this one. Actually, my copy is disc two of the Rustbox.

Inspired by the Ambrose Akinmusire thread, I am revisiting this.  I've listened to it probably a handful of times since it came out.  Having checked out a more recent release of his earlier today, we'll see where there this one stands.

I've been celebrating Gary Peacock by revisiting the Standards Trio.  I have 6 albums with the classic trio and At the Deer Head Inn, with Paul Motian in place of Jack DeJohnette.
