  1. Don Pullen Select. Just discovering those records, and really enjoying them. I have the Black Saint/Soul Note box, need to revisit those again soon.
  2. Thank you for all you (and the moderators) do here, much appreciated. -- Mark
  3. Excellent! Looking forward to owning a "proper" copy of this wonderful record. I recall trying to find it on eBay a few years back...
  4. I'm still enjoying the struggle to get my head wrapped around Ride the Wind. That music of that complexity and beauty can even be imagined, let alone composed and executed, is truly amazing to me. I'm interested in hearing this record. The duplicated composition... which one is it?
  5. Von Freeman - Doin' It Right Now. Love me some Von, and really enjoying John Young (piano).
  6. Von Freeman - Young and Foolish. (John Young, piano)
  7. Saw him live a few years ago, I think it was the same band as the NPR concert. Really enjoyed the show, Guiliana in particular. I'm not yet quite sure why, but I'm really loving this right now... from his new album "Blow."...
  8. Many hours of great music and conversation. Thanks, Chuck!!
  9. Thanks, Chuck. I'm gonna need to spend some time with that recording!
  10. "Not gonna be a drama queen"... way too late for that. Dan summed it up exactly right.
  11. I listened to "The Epic" on Youtube, with the thought that I would buy it if anything really "hit" me. Three CDs worth of material is a lot to digest, and while I did hear some things that were pretty interesting, nothing really stood out. It did, however, lead me back to some Coltrane records I haven't listened to in quite awhile. I'll give it another listen at some point. For now, I'll continue to spin Kendrick Lamar's latest record, which is friggin' fantastic.
  12. Not exactly "prog" rock as I understand it, but any band that plays in 7 and makes it work is always interesting to me: Band of Skulls - "Wanderluster": https://youtu.be/N2Rx_Npi4l0?t=5m32s
  13. Last night was Organissimo's 15th anniversary celebration at Randissimo's weekly jam session in Grand Rapids. LOTS of people there, great music, great energy!!!
  14. MS-001 Mosaic Select: Grachan Moncur, Disc 3, "Hipnosis" session. As has been discussed elsewhere on this board, this Select is as much a Jackie McLean set as it is Grachan Moncur. It's the first Select I purchased, and still one of my favorites. Always hear something new every time I put it on. Today, it's Billy Higgins' ride cymbal phrasing and comping (with the snares off) on "Hipnosis"... so good!!!
  15. Interesting question... Charisma is one of my favorite Lee Morgan records, along with Search for the New Land and The Procrastinator. I was always puzzled by the apparent lack of enthusiasm for that record, both here and (if I remember correctly), in the Penguin Guide.
  16. Liking this on first listen. Thanks, Shawn.
  17. Yes! I've been listening to it on youtube... and curious about the re-issue. It looks like it was one of those hard to find/out of print) discs that apparently fetches $30 or more on the used market.
  18. Back in print... relelase date 11/13/2015: Amazon Just discovered this record recently... rather than download the MP3s, I think I'll wait and order the CD. Anyone have any more info on this?
  19. Sorry to hear this. "Latin Dreams" (w/Melvin Rhyne) is a long-time favorite. Love the way he phrases on the ride cymbal!
