  1. Not inconsistent with 'Cocksucker Blues'. A shame Sony did not put out all the sessions with Sam Rivers as part of the bootleg series.
  2. Unissued Julius Watkins Mercury sessions.
  3. Larry Young Mosaic.

    Or Green Note records.
  4. Jean De Fleur

    Grant Green plays on Joe Carroll's Man With A Happy Sound. Check out the beginning of Route 66.

    Do not try to apply logic in that parallel world. Thank you for further confirming that Iverson is a dick. No wait, it actually makes sense. The process works as follows: 1. Take $25K from the NEA. 2. Shut down the NEA. In that order, not the reverse!

    I am pretty sure there is a full listing on their website.

    She has other reasons to disqualified. It is an award for accomplishments in the field of jazz. As such, she is not deserving as she has aligned herself with individual(s) who have demonstrated hatred or contempt for multiple groups well represented in the Jazz community: African-Americans, Women, Transgenders, Disabled people, the Military and others I am sure. Being a 'jazz master' implicitly suggests you respect all members of these groups and distance yourself from those who don't. All the more baffling as she is a member of two of these groups. It is an award, not a job. Your personal views can disqualify you. My two cents.
  8. "Mary Osborne: Queen of the Jazz Guitar"

    Do you still have this?
  9. George Wallington Quintet at Cafe Bohemia

    And now they are owned by Concord so they should see the light of day any minute now...

    'Minor March' is not the same song as 'Little Melonae'. 'Minor March' was retitled 'Minor Apprehension' on the New Soil record. Maybe that is what you were thinking of?
  11. New to me also! Would like to hear what she does with Clifford Jordan's Japanese Dream. Do not want to hear 'My Way' sung by ANYONE.
  12. 1) I do not think she gets lyric credit, I can check again. 2) No recording of the song before 1973, but she may have been playing it live for a while. 3) In terms of blacklisting, this is the timeline on her recordings between 60 and 73: - A few Candid dates 1960-1961 - Percussion Bitter Sweet and It's Time1962 - Japanese film soundtrack with Max 1963 - A few live bootlegs 1964 - One Italian live bootleg 1968 - Elektra Japan date c. 1973 - People In Me 1973 - Painted Lady Marge 1980 So yes, the majors were not recording her so she had time to work out some arrangements that she was woodshedding live before she got that 1973 record date. But she may have also chosen to focus more on acting during this period, possibly?
  13. That is 1973 though. Will check the Lord later for pre-1969 versions.
  14. Summer of Soul on Hulu

    Great documentary but yes, I want to see complete sets. Also, Wikipedia claims some of this WAS broadcast at the time. So some of it WAS seen before. Is Wikipedia wrong? I asked this in the other thread but worth repeating here: The piece Abbey sings is captioned as 'Africa'. It is not 'All Africa' from We Insist. The credits at the end claim it is the Coltrane composition but I think I would have recognized it. I will check it again later. Not just an academic exercise, there is serious $$$ involved and the correct composer needs to be identified. Bertrand.
  15. So Max is with a larger ensemble. Not sure if it is a house band, but we didn't see enough for me to recognize anyone. Looks like the guitar player is sitting on the floor. Another question arises: The piece Abbey sings is captioned as 'Africa'. It is not 'All Africa' from We Insist. The credits at the end claim it is the Coltrane composition but I think I would have recognized it. I will check it again later. Not just an academic exercise, there is serious $$$ involved and the correct composer needs to be identified. Bertrand.
