  3. Happy Birthday Louis Armstrong!

    Pops. He will always be the best. Duke once said, “Louis was born poor, and died rich, but he never hurt anyone his entire life.”
  4. Any love for Lou Rawls?

    Listing to "Live!" from the 60's. It too is real good.
  5. Any love for Lou Rawls?

    I am listening to "Stormy Monday" which he did with Les McCann. This is a great session. Lou went mainstream but he could sing jazz too.
  6. The Cookers

    What I was told when I asked someone yesterday working at the club, he was dehydrated last month. But I can't confirm that 100%. I didn't ask Billy.

  10. https://getpocket.com/explore/item/how-to-make-miles-davis-s-famous-chili-recipe?utm_source=pocket-newtab Miles Davis, who was born on May 26, 1926, was one of the most important and influential musicians of the 20th century, and changed the course of jazz music more times in his life than some people change their sheets. He was also pretty handy in the kitchen. In his autobiography, Miles, Davis wrote that in the early 1960s, “I had gotten into cooking. I just loved food and hated going out to restaurants all the time, so I taught myself how to cook by reading books and practicing, just like you do on an instrument. I could cook most of the great French dishes—because I really liked French cooking—and all the black American dishes. But my favorite was a chili dish I called Miles's South Side Chicago Chili Mack. I served it with spaghetti, grated cheese, and oyster crackers." Davis didn’t divulge what was in the dish or how to make it, but in 2007, Best Life magazine got the recipe from his first wife, Frances, who Davis said made it better than he did. MILES’S SOUTH SIDE CHICAGO CHILI MACK (SERVES 6) 1/4 lb. suet (beef fat) 1 large onion 1 lb. ground beef 1/2 lb. ground veal 1/2 lb. ground pork salt and pepper 2 tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. chili powder 1 tsp. cumin seed 2 cans kidney beans, drained 1 can beef consommé 1 drop red wine vinegar 3 lb. spaghetti parmesan cheese oyster crackers Heineken beer 1. Melt suet in large heavy pot until liquid fat is about an inch high. Remove solid pieces of suet from pot and discard. 2. In same pot, sauté onion. 3. Combine meats in bowl; season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, and cumin. 4. In another bowl, season kidney beans with salt and pepper. 5. Add meat to onions; sauté until brown. 6. Add kidney beans, consommé, and vinegar; simmer for about an hour, stirring occasionally. 7. Add more seasonings to taste, if desired. 8. Cook spaghetti according to package directions, and then divide among six plates. 9. Spoon meat mixture over each plate of spaghetti. 10. Top with Parmesan and serve oyster crackers on the side. 11. Open a Heineken. John Szwed’s biography of Davis, So What, mentions another chili that the trumpeter’s father taught him how to make. The book includes the ingredients, but no instructions, save for serving it over pasta. Like a jazz musician, you’ll have to improvise. bacon grease 3 large cloves of garlic 1 green, 1 red pepper 2 pounds ground lean chuck 2 teaspoons cumin 1/2 jar of mustard 1/2 shot glass of vinegar 2 teaspoons of chili powder dashes of salt and pepper pinto or kidney beans 1 can of tomatoes 1 can of beef broth serve over linguine Matt Soniak is a long-time mental_floss regular and writes about science, history, etymology and Bruce Springsteen for both the website and the print magazine.

  11. Happy Birthday, Kenny Burrell

    Happy Birthday, Kenny Burrell. He turned 90 today.
  12. You fear jazz?

    This is funny.
  13. Don Byas documentary.

    I never saw this before. It’s nearly complete.
  14. Pat Bowie - Thoughts?

    I have the two Prestige LP's she did. She surrounded herself with top musicians on these 2 LPs. I enjoy both. "Feelin' Good" - Tommy Flanagan and Charles McPherson "Out Of Sight!" - Kenny Burrell and Ray Bryant. Anyone else like her?
  15. Roy Hargrove & Mulgrew Miller - In Harmony

    This is even better than I expected. I just finished the first disc, and I am on to the second disc. Man, what a tragic loss to lose both of these masters of their instruments at such young ages.
