Third time trying to get through this one. Kept going back thinking there was something I was missing or just not picking up. Playing is nice enough but the pace is glacial - which is fine, I mean I dig Tord Gustavsen...but there's a decent amount of schmaltz I'm hearing on this and it's just not my thing. 

So, moved on to:

Some of my favorite moments here are when it's just Higgins, Holt & Johnson :tup

Time to play something from the Birthday Boy!

This is the fourth volume of a great series of discs from Storyville featuring great-sounding live appearances from the All Stars in Scandinavia. I think I like this volume best but all four are dynamite.

"Louis Armstrong in Scandinavia, Vol. 4"

Nothing quite like feeling you are being made to do homework. 

I am currently enjoying:

Dob Pullen and the African Brazilian Connection's Kele Mou Bana.

Lee Konitz' and Peggy Stern's The Jobim Collection on Philology.

Art Farmer Quartet - Sing Me Softly of the Blues (Atlantic, 1965)

R-3054331-1562161391-9020.jpeg.jpg

That rhythm section of Steve Kuhn, Steve Swallow and Pete La Roca was one of the most magical from the 1960s.
