Bob Florence, Westlake (Discovery) used vinyl from the French site priceminister.com for 15 euros. Not in perfect condition, tho' pretty good, and I'm not complaining as it seems to be quite a rarity and amazon.uk wanted £65 for the used CD! Oh, last but not least, the music is great!

Well, DG had a bunch of late 1980s/early 1990s Muse CDs for sale for $5 each, so I picked up a few.

Johnny Lytle's Possum Grease and Jack Walrath's Gut Feelings are probably the two most notable.

I also picked up Bossa Tres Bottles, which is what I am listening to right now. What great stuff.

It turns out this is an Andorran compilation of their 1963 album with 7 cuts from "Jazz Tempo Latin Accents" from 1965. It looks like they took the "purist" route and only put on the tracks that were Bossa Tres by themselves, while the other 5 tracks had Sonny Simmons, Prince Lasha and Clifford Jordan! It would be nice to hear this as well of course. As far as I can tell, Jazz Tempo has never come out on CD, though the LP is reasonably available. (Bossa Tres 1963 is available as a CD import.)

The Alternate Miles Davis, Miles 75 Anniversary

Demonstration • Not For Sale

nice collector's item

Dick Twardzik Trio • Complete Recordings

with Carson Smith or Jack Lawlor on bass and Peter Littman on drums

recorded 1954

2070.jpg

I only became aware of Dick Twardzik when exploring the discography of Charlie Mariano. Dick plays on Charlie's "Boston All Stars" (rec. 1953, Prestige PRLP 153) and on "Serge Chaloff plays the fable of Mabel" (rec. 1954, Storyville LP STV 3117).

Dick Twardzik died in Paris on October 21, 1955, after the injection of an overdose. He barely grew 24 years old. Serge Chaloff, his friend and colleague, shaken to the core, wrote in an elegy for Dick Twardzik: "He had a completely new way of approaching the piano and producing the sound of his harmonies. Dick's hunger for educating himself was insatiable. He never traveled without books about all topics of art and philosophy. He listened to symphony concerts as often as possible and as a matter of course he always practiced. I never met a guy dedicated to jazz on its highest level to this extent at this juvenile age. I'll miss him forever, and the music has lost one of its most passionate and most inspired disciples."

source: Metronome, USA, January 1956, page 25

PS

If I can still trust my ears at age 58 the piano seems to be out of tune at times.

:huh:
