  1. Curtis Fuller - RIP

    R.I.P. I always enjoyed Curtis Fuller's playing. A wonderful trombonist. One of the very best. The only time I saw him live was with the Basie Band. I really enjoy this record which is now part of the Beehive Mosaic box set.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Mel Lewis' playing here is incredible. To put it bluntly, this is a perfect example of someone swinging his a$$ off! I saw Mulligan's 1980 Concert Band in concert. A little different than the 1960 version, no big "'star" musicians like Zoot or Clark Terry or Brookmeyer, but still swinging with Gerry's wonderful comp/arrangements and his great baritone playing, still understated as far as typical big bands go, but still really good, perhaps for that very reason.
