I'm a big fan of this late one. All kinds of stuff happening. Should be listened to as a new wave classique rather than a late period jazz record.

Over last couple of days I went through the Bobby Hutcherson Select for the first time in a long time.  Also Barbara Thompson's The Last Fandango.

Is this good?

Norman Connors – Saturday Night Special (Buddah, 1975)

I have always struggled a bit with Norman Connors. Like Weldon Irvine and a lot of "New Note" stuff, it is, to my ears, neither fish nor fowl. At least this one has some decent hooks.

To me "Romantic Journey" was the strongest platter from said period .... covering ground between "Once I've Been There" feat the fabulous Southern Soul songsmith Prince Phillip Mitchell on vocals to a credible version of "Thembi" ....

Thanks. I'll give it a go. Looks like it's from slightly later on.

A kinetic version of “Make A List” on here, as well as a rare live performance of “Winter Moon”:

Yeah and a very fine group. I have an album also in Japan, but maybe a bit earlier and with Billy Higgins on drums, but it´s also George Cables and Tony Dumas, a great bass player.

Small correction. I believe the recording date is 1983. 

Thanks for the correction, John. As printed in the liners the date is really  May 04, 1981 at Emerson High School Auditorioum. Emerson. New Jersey.   ;-]]

Charles Mingus / John LaPorta – Jazzical Moods (Bethlehem, 1954)

This is music to get lost in. It's a shame that the sound quality is quite flat. That smokey mixture of Thad Jones and John LaPorta, and the weird and intricate arrangements.

Have you heard the album LaPorta co-led with Britt Woodman and Joe Wilder, Playing for Keeps, with Jack Wilkins and the Schuller brothers as the rhythm section?  It's fantastic.

Now playing:

I'm going through some of the Reservoir catalog now and never heard Boiarsky before.
