A little twisted music for this morning...

I didn't realize that the actor who played Sweeny Todd has been playing the former police commissioner and patriarch of the Reagan family in the CBS series "Blue Bloods."

I was so obsessed with Sings as a student. Burton Green scraping away.

This is a solid example of the Gene Harris I like as compared to the Three Sounds albums.

This is a good record. not perfect, but good.

Is Wallace McMillan still with us? That "cat" is "throwing down" pretty seriously here..

Impeccably conceived and executed, probably an exemplary release of this type of thing. It's not my thing, not at all, but...that's not their problem.

EDIT: ok, one fault - the string quartet can't swing 8th notes to save their ass. Other than that, though, no problem, they play everything else, especially the whole notes, wonderfully.

Not at all immediately overwhelming, but it's got a helluva lot of staying power for me, maybe because there's no over... ANYTHING.

Is this recognized as a masterpiece or anything? Because I swear to my soul I believe it is, if only for the orchestrations. But not only, and not just.

Johnny Griffin – Lady Heavy Bottom's Waltz (Vogue, 1969)

R-3010804-1311603467.jpg

I was largely drawn to this, to which I am listening for the first time, by the funny title.

It's from 1969, so about the time that Griffin gave the very angry interview that is in Notes and Tones. Interesting to hear the kind of music that he was making at that time, which is almost self-consciously of the previous generation.

It must have been a miserable time to be a straight ahead jazz musician at the top of his or her craft.

Yes, I also read that interview with Griffin. Griffin had a great start in Europe when he came to Paris but maybe he missed the old days.

Louis Scherr - Warm Valley (What's In A Name Records). A nice, if rather tame session that I found in a dollar bin and bought with one glance at the cover. :)

He's not alone. A lot of the interviewees in that book are very very bitter. But I think that Griffin comes across and the angriest.

John Coltrane "My Favorite Things" 50th Anniversary 2 cd set, mono mix cd. Sounds great. I ended up with two of these sets because I chose not to wait for Rhino to mail me my pre-ordered copy which took 3 weeks to arrive.
