  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    No, that's Nick De Geronimoooooooooooooo...
  2. Porgy and Bess, So Many Jazz Adaptations

    Enjoy the Miles/Gil version. The Ray & Cleo version came into KNTU and nobody else would touch it, so I took it home - still have it - but need to listen again after a few decades. Would never be able to sit thru a theatrical version (or movie either). Actually, I’m fond of this version. It definitely unhallows the original.

    It's funny. I don't even remember that French cover. I could've been in Hegewisch or Rose Records and saw it, noticed that I already had it, and put it back. Original pressings probably didn't even cross my mind back then. It was always the music. Still is.

    Ahh, OK, that was the French release. Yeah, the Prestige one is the one that I remember. Probably easier to get then(?) - but, still, a great record and "experience."

    I still like the original 10064 cover. This album had such an enormous impact on me in so many ways. Not only did I start adding more cymbals and "little instruments" to my percussion setup, but the following year I begged to be taken to see them in Ann Arbor.

    It seemed to continue for quite a few years afterwards too. They were distributed thru Polydor, so that really got the LPs into stores - even tho the reps didn't know who any of these artists were. I remember some women running back to record stores with copies of Song X in hand screaming something like "What happened to Pat Metheny???!!!" There was even a decent turnout to many of those 50th anniversary concerts at Big Ears back in 2019.
