  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Charlie Haden: The Golden Number
  2. Oscar Peterson -- further thoughts

    I find his "Night Child" album on the Pablo label to be quite interesting. He plays mostly electric piano. The album sounds very different from every other Oscar Peterson album. I think that he should have done more recording in this approach, exploring other things other than his fast mainstream playing.

    Rahsaan Roland Kirk--Boogie Woogie String Along For Real
  4. Did anything happen with the Saundra Hoffman stories?
  5. Ornette's "Dancing In Your Head" was a surprise at the time, that he would record with an all electric band. It is interesting to read the story behind its release.
  6. Larry Coryell R.I.P.

    Larry Coryell's own Facebook page says nothing about it.
  7. Bob Dylan corner

    I read in Bill Wyman's autobiography that every concert in the U.K. had to end with a playing of God Save The Queen, until some time in the later 1960s. Wyman described how the Rolling Stones concerts in the mid-1960s would end on a very energetic note, then the recording of God Save The Queen would be heard in the theater, moments after they finished.
  8. With the New England Patriots' win in the Super Bowl yesterday, I came across this information on Facebook and thought I would share it. The Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount is Sun Ra’s great nephew, according to the third sentence of the Early Life section of this biography. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LeGarrette_Blount
  9. BFT 155 Sign Up & Discussion

    I know one of the songs. Song 3 is by the Archie Shepp and Horace Parlan duo, from the Trouble in Mind album on the Steeplechase label. This song is When Things Go Wrong from that album. Your Blindfold Test is a consistently mainstream, swinging one. I like it. I will keep listening and trying to guess who is playing.
  10. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Angela Hewitt; J.S. Bach--The Art of Fugue
  11. *** John Scofield ***

    "Birth of the Mule", composed by John Scofield, is my favorite song on this album.
