  1. Not much of a reveal as almost all of these were guessed! But here they are in one convenient list. Thanks to all who participated and shared your thoughts! 1. Kahil El'zabar Ritual Trio w/ Pharoah Sanders - Miles' Mode https://www.discogs.com/master/1178318-Kahil-ElZabars-Ritual-Trio-Featuring-Pharoah-Sanders-Africa-Nda-Blues I just had to put some Pharoah in this one. 2. Ron Carter - Rufus https://www.discogs.com/master/365021-Ron-Carter-Etudes A long-time favorite of mine. Definitely an unusual front line on this one, as some noted. 3. Eddie Harris - The River Nile https://www.discogs.com/master/669461-Eddie-Harris-For-Bird-And-Bags Love this track! Though sadly the rest of the album is not in a similar vein except for one other. 4. Buster Williams - Pinnacle https://www.discogs.com/master/286850-Buster-Williams-Pinnacle This album doesn't seem to get much attention but I think it's great. Buster grooves hard and I love the 70s vocal ensemble bits throughout. 5. Onaje Allan Gumbs - Waiting… In Love https://www.discogs.com/master/1263682-Onaje-Allan-Gumbs-Onaje One of only two tracks nobody guessed! Some of you probably know Onaje from many Muse and Strata East sessions (including the track above). This solo piano record was a recent discovery for me. 6. Eddie Lockjaw Davis - Three Deuces https://www.discogs.com/master/411960-Eddie-Lockjaw-Davis-With-Shirley-Scott-And-Jerome-Richardson-The-Eddie-Lockjaw-Davis-Cookbook This was easy for many of you but believe it or not I've only gotten into Lockjaw pretty recently. This track is a burner for sure. 7. New Air w/ Cassandra Wilson - Side Step https://www.discogs.com/master/40844-New-Air-Featuring-Cassandra-Wilson-Air-Show-No-1 I just love the way this track evolves. And Wilson's vocals are fantastic. 8. Vic Feldman - Evening in Paris https://www.discogs.com/master/557087-Vic-Feldman-On-Vibes This is here because of Harold Land! Not to slight the rest of the band, who are in top form. 9. Piano Choir - A Whole New World https://www.jazzdisco.org/the-piano-choir/catalog/#the-piano-choir-pccd-9501 Was hard to pick one from this, but I went with the Disney tune. The whole disc is excellent. Not an easy one to find now, but let me know if you want to hear it. 10. Kip Hanrahan - Shadow Song https://www.discogs.com/master/141310-Kip-Hanrahan-Verticals-Currency Again, this entire record is outstanding and I highly recommend it. Unreal lineup too. 11. Anthony Davis/Jay Hoggard - The Clothed Woman https://www.discogs.com/master/698559-Anthony-Davis-2-Jay-Hoggard-Under-The-Double-Moon Magical playing from this duo. 12. Django Bates - Discovering Metal https://www.discogs.com/master/597893-Django-Bates-Summer-Fruits-And-Unrest Bates is kind of a wizard…a brilliant composer and performer IMHO. And the sense of humor is most definitely intentional. Check out his version of New York, New York, if you dare… https://youtu.be/N19rEz26Ufw 13. Shadow Vignettes - Quiet Resolution https://www.discogs.com/master/1199675-Shadow-Vignettes-Birth-Of-A-Notion I can't come up with words to do this one justice. So I'll just say: Ed Wilkerson, Rita Warford, and Light Henry Huff!
  2. Last call for guesses on track 5 and track 12! I'm pretty sure everything else was ID'd long ago. Oh well. I'll make it harder next time. 😉 Here's a hint on track 5-- the pianist appears elsewhere on this BFT. And here's an impossible hint on track 12-- the leader played for some time with a drummer, who played with a bass player, who once played on two tracks by the saxophonist on track 3.
  3. Oh, and I meant to say thanks to all who chimed in on the Chico Hamilton recommendations. More to check out! 👍
  4. Hey all! Apologies for vanishing, crazy week here. I've been trying to catch up and it looks like you all made quick work of this. I think almost everything has been ID'd? Except maybe for that track near the end that not many people liked. I forget which number, I don't have it in front me right at the moment. Yes! And it's a favorite album of mine. I have to give Hanrahan's other LPs another chance, but I don't remember any of them immediately grabbing me quite the way this one did. I'm a big Jack Bruce fan, number one, and it certainly only helps matters that Murray plays his ass off on this record too. Yep! Good digging, everyone who figured this out! I do own a copy of this coveted CD, bought back when the Piano Choir actually had a website for 10 mins. This must have been around the early 2000s though I can't remember exactly. It was very old school, I think I had to send an email through the website, to which I think maybe Stanley Cowell's wife responded? And a couple weeks later the CDs arrived. The other disc I ordered besides Handscapes 95 was a CD reissue of the first Piano Choir CD (minus a couple tracks that wouldn't fit on one disc). That one apparently is also pretty hard to find. No idea how many of these were made but I'm guessing not a lot. Ah, I guess I didn't read your comment clearly before I responded above. Someone else who has the Handscapes CD! High five! I'm also disappointed about the missing tracks, I really love every track from the initial release (luckily I have the LPs too). As far as the second LP, I agree it doesn't compare to the first but after my initial disappointment I've grown to like a lot of it. But *very* different from that first record. Whoa! I need this! I see cadnor.com has it... sounds like this is worth picking up?
  5. Sorry all, life has temporarily gotten in the way but I'll post more comments/responses soon!
  6. Thanks for listening! Glad you enjoyed it. You're of course correct on #6, but on #8 there is no trumpet. I won't say any more than that since you don't want spoilers.
  7. Perhaps parody, but what I hear in this track is the beauty of the singer completely losing control, in perfect, uninhibited expression of the lyrics. And what a gorgeous arrangement. Absolutely theatrical, and I might even be tempted to use the word "EPIC"... although that feels too impersonal, maybe. Correct on all counts. Track 8 is neither Rosolino or Land's date, but yes, they are the horn players. Correct!
  8. Ha! I feel like this happens every time I do this... the track I think is the "surprise" is the one that's guessed right off the bat. I thought some of the first several tracks were the easiest to ID, but bam, you went right to #13 and nailed it. Well done! I love this track so much, it makes me cry. Love the vocal and that soprano solo is off the charts.
  9. Hi all, I'm very pleased to present this month's BFT. I'm more interested in your impressions of the music, good or bad, than whether you can actually identify anything (I'm not always very good at that part myself). Also, a note for those who might think this BFT is not for them after listening to track 1-- skip ahead and I bet you'll find something you like. Enjoy! http://thomkeith.net/index.php/blindfold-tests/ Thanks to Thom for keeping this train a 'rollin!
  10. They do! I just passed by this one and remembered his name from that collaboration w/ Freddie Hubbard that I still need to get... https://alphastate.nyc/products/ilhan-mimaroglu-complete-finnadar-atlantic?_pos=2&_psq=ilhan&_ss=e&_v=1.0 And I'll give a listen to those 2 you mentioned. Good to know about these, thanks!
