    • I went to the Roman Schwaller quartet tuesday night.  Roman Schwaller is one of the leading saxophonists here in Europe. He´s from Elvetia but lives in Viena.  He recorded with name musicians like Johnny Griffin and hundrets of others and is a great composer and arranger also.  The first time I had heard him was jammin with Sonny Stitt, when Roman still was very young and had played with the Viena Art Orchestra.  He had a very talented young bassist from Serbia, my favourite Oliver Kent on piano and my favourite Mario Gonzi on drums.  Interesting, they did a lot of Monk tunes that evening, like "Trinkle Tinkle" and so on.  And an astonishing medium tempo swing version of "For Heaven´s Sake" which is usually done as a ballad, at least that´s how I had played it once.  After the show Roman told me that he had heard Joe Lovano doing it that way.  If I go to a show just for my pleasure for listening,  I always sit as near to the drummer as possible, because I love to hear the drums loud and also feel it from the bottom....
    • Now listening. But who is "Fudd Gumjaw"? 👍 👍 Now playing:
    • The interesting thing is that the first "Walkin" I heard was one of the live versions of the "2nd Quintet" that means with Herbie, Ron, Tony, which I played over and over again when I was a kid. So when I bought a then available Prestige Double album of pre-first-quintet Davis recordings I was kinda puzzled that it´s  such a relaxed medium tempo. Then, in my early youth I didn´t find it as exiting as the herbie-tony-ron-thing.  As I said, that´s a generation thing..... The "second quintet" walkin´ seemed to be a hit of my generation, everybody hummed it and said it´s fast and strong.  Once when I lived with my 10years elder sister she had called a craftman  to fix something in the 1st floor and I was up in my room and had Davis second quintet, maybe just "Walkin" spinnin and as always during that time, very very loud. And later my sister came up and said "that craftman  said "wow, great music you are spinnin´" I asked her "why didn´t you send him up ?"
