  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Great music, not so great sound on this CD. But good enough
  2. Any love for Lou Rawls?

    Plenty of love here for Rawls. I’m most familiar with his late 70s into the 80s work. Great, instantly recognizable singer
  3. Most of the McQueen & Langley Park albums are on this comp
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Started today with: Third time trying to get through this one. Kept going back thinking there was something I was missing or just not picking up. Playing is nice enough but the pace is glacial - which is fine, I mean I dig Tord Gustavsen...but there's a decent amount of schmaltz I'm hearing on this and it's just not my thing. So, moved on to: Some of my favorite moments here are when it's just Higgins, Holt & Johnson
  5. Welcome to BFT #209

    It really is a great song. My favorite of this BFT so far.
  6. Welcome to BFT #209

    I'm almost thinking it may be him on 3 as well but I'm not ready to commit to that...
  7. Welcome to BFT #209

    I see #11 is Fuller, but from the 50s and not the 60s. For some reason his tone on his early recordings is recognizable but not necessarily in a good way, even though I really like his playing. Hard to believe that #5 is Frisell on guitar. I've been listening to a good amount of him lately and absolutely didn't recognize his playing.
  8. Welcome to BFT #209

    1 - Well, these players are so good they make this sound like it's easy to do. Swinging the hell out of this tune. Wow. Very nice. Sounds like it's from the 50s, or maybe early 60s. With the stereo separation I'm guessing maybe it's from Contemporary? And if so, would it be Art Pepper? Whoever it is, I dig it. 2 - Lovely piano intro. And a really nice trombone lead. No guesses, but love the tune. Sounds like a mid-60s or so recording. 3 - The guitar and overall production sound make me think at least 90s and possibly newer than that. That guitar sound reminds me of some ECM records...is this Stanko with Bro on guitar? 4 - 'Round Midnight is the tune? If not, it's reminding me of that song for some reason. 5 - African-esque intro with the guitar and drums like that...when the guitar comes back it's definitely sounding like a player coming from that tradition. It's a softer production style than what I'm used to hearing from those types of recordings however. I'd guess it's a recent recording but no guesses as to who. Part of me wants to guess one of those Tony Allen records but I don't think that's it. 6 - I like the mood of this song and the playing is really nice. Sounds like it's from the 60s. Burrell on guitar? Good lord that drummer starting at about the 5:20 mark... 7 - Monk composition by chance? Newer production style...and is that a cello being played? 8 - Man, not sure about this one. Guitarist is real fast but not sure I like how it sounds, or how the ensemble fits together... 9 - Great playing. Song isn't really my thing...no guesses here 10 - Cinematic/soundtrack-ish composition...Very nice in parts but not sure about the whole. 11 - Nice tune, and the playing is good. Not a fan of how the trombone sounds but the solo is enjoyable regardless. Is this a 60s Curtis Fuller song? 12 - No guesses. Very nice composition and playing. 13 - And I've got no idea here. Not many times I've heard an organ/acoustic guitar pairing with horns. So this is unique, at least for me.
  9. Disc 2 from that set, followed by: Very nice comp of pre-Itals songs.
  10. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    While listening to samples of that Luba Raushiek album I found this:
