  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Prompted by hardbopjazz's Lou Rawls thread: Some sizzling "Groove" Holmes accompaniment on this one. Only four cuts. But still...
  7. Happy Birthday Louis Armstrong!

    This is how you program your kid correctly. Put them down for their nap and lay the Glenn Miller Story OST record with these two at the end of each side. Teach your children that all is not as it seems looking out their front door. It's the right thing to do! oh MY!!!!
  8. Any love for Lou Rawls?

    You guys are probably all way too young to remember the 1990s, but back then, when everyone was unloading their vinyl, I found most of Lou Rawls' early- to mid-60s Capitol LPs, most of them in MONO. Been ages since I've spun them, but I've never unloaded them either.

    There is a great twofer combining black and blue and Tobacco Road, Onzy Matthew’s arrangements. Anthony London
  10. Miles Davis "Lost" 1991 Paris concert

    Still wondering what's the story with Sleepy Night Records.

    1954! 1962:
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Caught that band live at the Jazz Showcase. It was magical indeed.
  13. Any love for Lou Rawls?

    The dude was hip to jazz. There were a bunch of tenor players I knew that passed his touring gig around to each other. One guy who I was working with at the time told me about the first time he met Lou. The band was having breakfast with Lou early in the morning. The manager says to Lou, "Lou, here's our new tenor player!' Lou, seated in front of his breakfast extends his hand to my friend, and says "Hi welcome aboard"...and then falls asleep, with his face falling into his eggs!
  14. Any love for Lou Rawls?

    Put me down for this one. Truth.
  15. Any love for Lou Rawls?

    He did some excellent work with David Axelrod at Capitol in the late 60's. This gem from 1966 is my all-time favorite Rawls cut:
  16. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    XT - Deorlaf [OtoRoku] Fataka was a good label but I haven't heard that one
  17. I was 14, and I'm aware of it, but I have started to listen more accurately to it in the 10 last years. So I knew it but have come to fully appreciate it later. And it's great! I'm rereading that book, that was my favorite book for a long time when I was younger. From Alberf Camus. And it's a very old edition (like from the 50s), which I think belonged to my mother.
  18. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Pat Thomas - Al-Khwarizmi Variations (Fataka, 2013) Revisiting one I haven't listened to in a while.
  19. Yes, that's very true. But I know more Regina and less La Lupe... And Regina was all those things you say.
  20. sgcim, It's interesting -- and surprising -- that they were such jazz traditionalists. No Coltrane after he left Miles?!?! Modal music is "boring"?!?! Yowza. Speaking of Aja ... I was 9 years old when it came out 1977. I grew up on that album because my father LOVED it, played the hell out of it. I still have his LP. I rarely play it, but when I do, it's like a time machine -- it takes me back to being a kid. But, aside from Aja (and the radio hits that everyone knows), Steely Dan has never really grabbed me. I "imprinted" on just that one LP. It was the only Steely Dan record that my dad had, and I've never really dug any further. Maybe I will one day...
