One of my earliest vinyls and still a top favorite.  The "loose" swing of these guys is remarkable and timeless.

Everyone should be talking about Lafayette Gilchrist! He's a huge talent imo.

Recorded radio broadcast of George Russell in Venice, 1980.  Amazing stuff.

Is it possible that Johnny O´Neal played with Blakey´s Jazzmessengers for a short time ? I think he was the pianist in summer 83, when I saw a Messenger Group with I think I remember Terence Blanchard, Donald Harrison, Jean Touissant, Johnny O´Neal and Lonnie Plaxico ? 

I remember that event because Dizzy sat in for "Wee", (but only scatting, no tp maybe due to contractual reasons). 

In the course of a ballad medley I think Johnny O´Neal played "Summertime", a very fine version. After that I haven´t seen him any more here in Austria.

Scroll down to 1983.

Pretty sure I saw O’Neal with the Messengers and yes, it would have been 1983. Probably the same tour. That lineup sounds the same as well.

Johnny Richards "Mosaic Select" disc 2

Which includes

"Experiments in Sound"
s-l300.jpg

and
R-9300803-1524246563-4002.jpeg.jpg

Every time I play something from this selection I hope I really, really, really get into the music. Hasn't happened yet, bu maybe one day. At least it seems each time my system is better and the music sounds better.

It's a noble effort, but,,,I'm afraid that what you hear is what you get. Enjoy the show, just know that dinner is not provided.

It does, I know what you mean. It happened for me with the Brookmeyer Select. Finally got over the glib and found the greater groove.

But I've been trying with Richards at least as long as you have and...like I said, nice show, but dinner plans should be made either before or after. Probably after?

The one thing of his that has worked, "clicked", for is Adventures In Time, with Kenton. That's just steroids on speed (or vice-vers). Put on your space helmets and fly faster than the speed of loud! Other than that...I too will keep trying, but I don't see it happening.

What ended up putting a big strike in the Richards column on my scoreboard, was when I went on a Boyd Raeburn binge a little while ago. The first band, great. The George Handy seized the reigns...interesting, often enough. But then Richards took over and I was like...seriously? This hit-you-over-the-head OBVIOUS, like bad movie music. So...left a sour taste in my mouth, that did.
