  1. Miles Davis "Lost" 1991 Paris concert

    Don't disagree.
  2. Porgy and Bess, So Many Jazz Adaptations

    Rhapsody is in the public domain.
  3. Miles Davis "Lost" 1991 Paris concert

    I do have what I guess is a bootleg of it. Also I made a DVD from a VHS of the broadcast which was not the whole concert. Biggest surprise to me was that they did Watermelon Man.
  4. Tony Scott

    IIRC the Darren McGavin Mike Hammer used Harlem Nocturne as the theme. No idea whose version it was.
  5. Porgy and Bess, So Many Jazz Adaptations

    IIRC the Miles/Gil record was the best selling of the lot.
  6. Porgy and Bess, So Many Jazz Adaptations

    Yes, but with the arrangements Gil did for Miles.
  7. Duke Ellington - Afro Bossa

    They haven't been alive anywhere near 50 years. It's easy for old farts like us to know this stuff. I mean, I studied with Marshall McLuhan-- twice.
  8. Duke Ellington - Afro Bossa

    The DJs have a show called Morning Becomes Eclectic. and their taste is indeed that (more so than mine and I expect yours) but they weren't born when this was a new record.
  9. Duke Ellington - Afro Bossa

    On Monday "Press Play" on KCRW started a week of listeners picking their favorite tracks and though most of it was recent pop/rock/dance etc the host began by playing her favorite: Chinoiserie from Eclipse. She included part of Ellington's spoken intro and the guest djs on the show were blown away by it. (One of them exclaimed something like "How did you find that!")
  10. Tito Puente in the 1940' and 1950's

    I can't resist.
  11. I'm surprised that no one's mentioned The Willem Breuker Kollektief.
  12. There's a lot about Riot in the book about music in 1971 ("Never a A Dull Moment") as well as the tv series derived from the book ("1971: The Year the Music Changed Everything"-- or some silly name like that.)
  13. I didn't know that. (I do remember him stating after the release of Tijuana Moods that RCA was the first label to have paid him any royalties. ) How well did 3 or 4 Shades do commercially?
  14. Happy 91 Helen Merrill.

    Saw her sit in with the Gil Evans memorial band (or whatever it's called) at the Jazz Standard a few years ago.
  15. Miles Davis - Merci, Miles! Live at Vienne

    Been listening to this while I work out at the Y. I thought I never wanted to hear Human Nature or Time after Time again but I was wrong.
