    I'm a retired postal administrator. Loved jazz since my teenage years. I'm particularly interested in 50s/60s hard bop, Miles Davis, Gerry Mulligan, in fact I like most thing from that period. I'm partial to a bit of free jazz too as long as it's not too noisy. Also I've been a big David Murray fan ever since his first album in 1976. Outside of jazz I enjoy a bit of fishing when the weather's nice and can spend a lot of time watching movies (mostly dvds these days rather than the cinema.<br /><br />

  1. Very fond of this version of the Messengers
  2. Nigel Price Organ Trio + Vasilis Xenopoulos. Live At The Crypt. A new release from one of the UK's best groups. If you don't know Price he's worth a punt.
  3. Agreed. I have the Finnish cd - excellent music. For an odd version of Flowers try the Skatalites with Murray.
  4. After several weeks of Blue Note only its time for a change. Astonishing stuff. So is the following.
  5. Byrd's Eye View is particularly important to my listening. Sixty odd years ago I had an Esquire EP with Hank's Other Tune on one side. I was totally knocked out by Hank's composition, his playing and that of Byrd and the other participants. I'd never heard these players before and I knew this music was for me. So this was my introduction to Mobley and hard bop. Love it still.
  6. Gave my SHM cd a spin yesterday. Nice stuff. Also yesterday
