Today in the office, (sub)editing on the sports desk. Hey, I take as much pride in my Saturday work as the rest of the week, but as I'm desk bound and doing mostly football (along with a bit of other stuff), Saturday is definitely the best day for music in the office.

*Jackie Mclean - Jacknife

*Duke Ellington - Such Sweety Thunder

*Gary Bartz - Coltrane Rules! (He's playing Wangaratta this year, so the artiistic director slipped me a rough mix of this. It sounds great. Three Trane tunes (Trasnition, Dahomey Dance, Big Nick), one Dameron (Soultrane), one standard (I Concentrate On You) and one original. I don't what label this will be coming out on).

*Paul Williamson Quintet - Mutations

*John bell Trio - Spirals

*Hank Mobley - No Room For Bears

I haven't posted to this list in a while.


Wayne Shorter .:. The All Seeing Eye | I don't think I've listened to this album since a few months after its re-release! Genesis.

Organissimo .:. Waiting for the Boogaloo Sisters | This disc sort of stays in our player for weeks at a time. Life Wish is such an amazing song guys.

Jason Moran .:. the Bandwagon | Trying to spur some discussion in the new releases thread. If you've heard this, let's hear what you think.

Greg Osby .:. Symbols of Light (A Solution) | Decided it was time I pull this one back out after listening to the Bandwagon numerous times. I actually appreciate this disc more now than I did when I originally bought it. At the time, I didn't think the strings really added much. That has since changed.

Mat Maneri featuring Joe McPhee .:. Sustain | Album of the Week a couple of weeks ago.

See lack of discussion here.

Jackie McLean .:. Demon's Dance | Is there a remaster for this album anywhere in sight? McLean and Shaw and DeJohnette! 1967 MEAN McLean.

Dave Douglas .:. Freak In | I still haven't given this disc "proper" time. I doesn't even seem to be the right sound for my mood.

Bobby Hutcherson .:. Patterns | Spurred from a discussion elsewhere on the board.

Medeski, Martin, and Wood .:. Tonic | After listening to the Bandwagon numerous times...

Andrew Hill .:. Smokestack | I had to hear those two bassists weaving in and out on my new speakers.


Califone .:. Quicksand/Cradlesnakes | Definitely my album of the year. I will post a nice review here sometime. I think this music would be in many boardmembers interest. There is a review in the latest issue of Signal To Noise that I think does a pretty damn good job, if you are interested.

The Sea and Cake .:. One Bedroom | The latest release is always my favorite from this group. I can't wait to hear another Sam Prekop solo album too much longer.

Neil Michael Haggerty & the Howling Hex .:. s/t | Good, and growing on me. Formerly of Pussy Galore, he seems to have a bit of a Beefheart thing going for him at times. Definitely a guitar to be reckoned with. Half of this album was recorded in Richmond, VA.

Ted Leo & The Pharmacicts .:. Hearts of Oak | Very good! The best rock recommendation I had recieved in a long time, until Al Jones recommended

Dismemberment Plan .:. Emergency & I | !!!! Very cool. An excellent singer would make this band more than "indie status." Warshington DC.

Velvet Underground .:. Velvet Underground | This must be a classic. I can't keep up. Candy Says just fills the room.

That's enough for now, I think.
