Do you have this one, on here now?

Ray Bryant - Somewhere in France

MG, I don't have that CD.  Do I need to hear it?  ;) 

 

 

Earlier this AM:

Art Pepper - The Trip (Contemporary / OJC)
with George Cables, David Williams, and Elvin Jones

I've never heard a better version of "The Summer Knows."  Like much of Legrand's music, the tune can easily slip into something that sounds overripe, almost maudlin.  But Pepper's version here -- Oh man, by holding back just a little, he kills it. And it's soooo bluesy -- not a adjective that you'd ever naturally associate with this song.

 

NP:

The Cannonball Adderley Quintet - Country Preacher: "Live" at Operation Breadbasket (Capitol)
with Nat, Joe Zawinul, Walter Booker, and Roy McCurdy

I think Zawinul sounds great on this record. (And I don't always feel that way about his playing.)

Ah, got it to work.

Joel Dorn described it as the most exciting live jazz recording he'd ever heard. Well, this from a man who'd previously released Sonny Stitt's album with Don Patterson & Billy James live at the Left Bank is saying a bit TOO much - but he was trying to sell records. It is indeed very, very good Ray Bryant, a solo gig, recorded by him, somewhere he'd forgotten after all the years - hence the title.

Sounds good. I'll add it to the list. Thanks for the heads-up. :tup

A superior recording by Mr. Hamilton with superb assistance from Tommy Flanagan, Bob Cranshaw and Lewis Nash.

Scott Hamilton is 64 today.  Steve Turre is 70 today.  Wow!  It seems like only yesterday when they were among the young guys on the jazz scene.  But wait a minute -- if they're no longer young guys, then that might mean I'm no . . . lon . . . ger . . .

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!
