    It sounds like you are referring to the 20 minute broadcast of a jam on "Lover Come Back to Me" from Cafe Society in 1950, with Bird, Tony Scott, Brew Moore, Dick Hyman, Ed Shaughnessy and others. Tony's playing is long and generally excruciating. Bird is superb - relaxed, imaginative, melodic and swinging over several perfect choruses ... IMO one of his greatest (and longest) solos on tape.
  2. Interesting about Joe's work with Bird in that 1946 recording. His playing is certainly unsure, especially when compared to the great sides he made with Lester in the same year (You're Driving me Crazy etc.). No doubt he had erratic periods throughout his life, presumably related to his drug supply - but when he was on, he was great, as you undoubtedly know ...

    For anyone interested, the response by Evans to Crow's review can be found at the following site: https://www.jazzstudiesonline.org/content/jazz-review THE JAZZ REVIEW - VOLUME 2, Number 7, August, 1959 (Letters/ page 3) Evans essentially responds to what he sees as a biased attack on a personal friend, rather than addressing any issues raised by Crow. Important Site!

    It would be interesting to know Evans' reply ...
  5. Looks like a great job - many thanks ... Question - How does the Rank Progress work? I joined in 2004 and have just been promoted to "Newbie" (with 3 badges) ! How long before I become a "Grand Master"?
  6. #4 Serves me right - I couldn't hear it, and my French stinks - It's Soft Shoe from the Mulligan Quartet at La Pleyel 1954.
  7. #4 Tune would have to be "Walkin' Shoes", thanks to the hint and my high school French ...
  8. The rhythm on that piece seems unusual (to my ears) - what would you call that?
  9. #4 Brookmeyer is there in the mix (with Mulligan) ... can't quite get the tune ...
  10. At the local level many Shinto shrines incorporate elements of Gagaku into their traditional ceremonies, festival dances and processions, so I have heard these … accompanied by a little sake . Court Gagaku (similar to your selection (?)) is rather rarified and performed in Shinto ceremonies related to the Imperial Family. There are orchestras in the big cities that occasionally give public performances. Some of the larger Buddhist temples also have Gagaku groups which accompany Sutra chanting on special occasions. I’m in the countryside – you’ve wetted my appetite …
  11. #5 Gagaku - traditional Japanese court music ... who is difficult ...
