  1. Stan Kenton Johnny Richards Cuban Fire - Other Version

    There is/was this DVD at CD Japan by the Afro Cuban All Stars, but it doesn't seem to be related to the Johnny Richards version: https://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/COBY-91266 Apparently "The Afro-Cuban All-Stars is a project led by Juan de Marcos González that features veteran singers" ...
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Clifford's solo on "Theme" is excellent - Tadd's is remarkable!

  4. The Jazz Wax article on Hipp is here: https://www.jazzwax.com/2013/05/jutta-hipp-the-inside-story.html It seems she preferred life away from the spotlight ... reasons are given.
  5. Now reading...

    Fascinating - I'd never read Baldwin's "Sonny's Blues" before - 50s, heroin, jazz ... Followed up with the Gerald Early/ Ethan Iverson discussion. Many thanks
  6. Konitz's "Loverman" w/ Kenton in Sweden

    Thanks for that Larry and Mark - one of the great solos.
  7. Blow, Brother Konitz, BLOW!

    There is so much with the Kenton band that is superb, as Larry has mentioned; and then there is the great playing on the Storyvilles etc. The hard- heads around Tristano give/gave 1955 as the cut-off date. After that his playing started to change, gradually at first - by 1960 it is obvious. This is not to say that, with the right band, there were not flashes of the "old" Lee, but they gradually became fewer and fewer. Just what caused that is open to question ...

  11. LF Los Angeles Jazz Institute (LAJI) CD

    Vol. 17 sounds pretty interesting - great band! Any more information? I checked Jack Goodwins' Warne Marsh site but couldn't find anything ... also the LAJI site.
  12. Where the hell is Phil Schaap?

    Congratulations Phil - keep it going - we need you!
  13. Going forward or back pages

    Experienced the same problem after downloading HTTPS everywhere for security purposes. This site is HTTP and the new installation caused that problem. As there were similar problems on a couple on other sites I uninstalled it and the problem went away. So much for added security
