  1. An excellent trio recording. If you open with a Larry Willis tune, you have my full attention.
  2. I grew up watching Sesame Street and my daughter still loves it. When it moved to HBO, they dumbed it down and several beloved cast members, including Bob McGrath, were dropped. We watch the older episodes. Bob McGrath always approached his role with enthusiasm and a twinkle in his eye. RIP.
  3. I think I read that Art Pepper used to call Cables Mister Beautiful. That pretty much sums up his playing and sunny disposition. I know that it is a waste of energy to lament award snubs, but how is Cables not an NEA Jazz Master?!? I just checked and neither are Harper, McBee and Henderson. That is nuts.
  4. This is a really strong big-band date. I plan on checking out more of his music.
  5. I really enjoy Floating in Winter, a duo album with Self and guitarist Chiodini.
  6. Ron Miles and Rudy Royston join Hess on this and another Capri date.
  7. I've acquired several Benny Carter albums over the years from bargain bins and haven't spent a ton of time with them, although I revisited them a few months ago. The newly released Princeton concerts have me thinking that I should be listening to him much more often.
  8. Stanley Jordan also guests on Volume 6. I listened to 4 volumes on YouTube over the weekend. There's a good chance I'll end up buying all 8 volumes.
  9. After 3 days, I think that I am nearing the end of my Burrell albums. I also had the tracks from the Oliver Nelson and Quincy Jones Mosaics. After that, on to
  10. More Kenny Burrell with The Bass on Top and Whims of Chambers sessions. The sessions with Billy Mitchell, Burrell, Tommy Flanagan, Oscar Pettiford and Shadow Wilson.
