  1. Happy Birthday Louis Armstrong!

    Thanks John.
  2. Porgy and Bess, So Many Jazz Adaptations

    To be honest, Porgy and Bess is more DuBose Heywood than Gershwins--he wrote a novel, he and his wife turned that into a play and then worked with George to transform it into a musical.

  5. Happy Birthday Louis Armstrong!

    Happy Birthday to one of the most important men of the Twentieth Century! I'm playing your music today Louis!
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Time to play something from the Birthday Boy! This is the fourth volume of a great series of discs from Storyville featuring great-sounding live appearances from the All Stars in Scandinavia. I think I like this volume best but all four are dynamite. "Louis Armstrong in Scandinavia, Vol. 4"
  7. I've made chili with Ethiopian chili powder as well. I lived in Ethiopia for two years as a Tween. There when you hear the spice pronounced then it sounded more like Peeree Peeree. I like injerra and wot but none I've ever had in the US competes with the memory of the food in Addis Ababa.
  8. People seem to pooh-pooh the product but I find textured protein works quite well as a ground beef substitute with strong spicing. But. . . only kidney beans? That's such an Eastern US thing. These days I make big pots of chili to deiiver to my Dad. I use pinto, black beans and kidney beans--he loves it that way. But for myself I usually don't include the kidney beans.

    Actually I first heard this in the box set and wasn't paying attention to the album title but was amazed at the great arrangements for a hard bop quintet and the drumming of Max "The Architect" Roach. Another great thing about this disc besides the great sound is it cotains alternates.

  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    "Le Ca: New York Romance" Barney Wilen, Venus CD. I have three different cover versions of this release because it's an absolute favorite. Each feature his lovely companion, Marie Moor. This is an RVG recording, and you can sense the seriousness and yet joy of recording in this venue that Wilen likely felt. And it is a great showcase for the beautiful beautiful sound that Wilen got out of all the horns he played. Beautiful sound, beautiful melody and innovative interpretation. He was a master who should have recorded more, but I think he recorded just as much as he wanted to. Bass – Ira Coleman Drums – Lewis Nash Soprano Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone – Barney Wilen Piano: Kenny Barron Recorded at the Rudy Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on June 19-20, 1994.
  14. Thanks. I have all the Bechet thanks to a member here--and that is a treasure trove containing some material I never knew existed, and all the Christians and Young and most of the Ellington and Holiday. Slowly over time I'll complete those issued and be done. An excellent label that released discs that remain very valuable for collectors.
  15. Found both volumes, ironically outside of this advertised "WTB."
