...um Kenny, just curious, but "The Wiggles"?? I watch them with my two year old alot. Paul the Chef is one of the guys from Crowded House. That's the only legitimate music connection I've been able to make.

Listening to a lot of Stanley Turrentine and Shirley Scott records. "Hustlin'" and "A Chip off The Old Block" are killing me! :D

Also, "Moon Rappin'" ;)

Gene Ammons "Boss Tenor" and "Best of the 70's" :tup

And, of course, always John Patton on the player. Lately, I've been revisiting some of his mid-period Blue Note stuff. Looking forward to the Mosaic Select coming out soon for Big John.

Miles Davis: Complete Live at the Plugged Nickel. For some reason, hearing it now is really hitting me where I live.

Don Pullen/George Adams: Song Everlasting.

James Newton: African Flower

There are some 80's Blue Notes that are stonecold classic, these are two of them.
