    Holiday in Portugal tomorrow. Will have some time for the Christmas tree and ... Focus - Stan Getz.
    Don't know why but I like my jazz with strings this time of the year.

    Chet Baker - Chet (Riverside) stereo OJC lp

    This is one of those albums that when I hear the opening notes it puts me in a relaxed mood. The entire album is great imo but the opening Alone Together really sets the mood. It's easily one of my favorite versions of that standard.

    This one does that for me as well Les. Again the UHQCD of the RVG edition from King Records. Sounds so good.

    Focus is a tremendous take on the jazz on strings concept. I don't own Cool Velvet anymore. I found it disappointing. It seemed to lack the energy of Focus which imho bristles with an intensity lacking in CV. YMMV as usual.

    Here's a new one, a debut album by an ambitiously large group of LA musicians led by composer and violinist Lauren Elizabeth Baba -- who doesn't play on the record. I hadn't heard of the album or group until Downbeat made it an editor's pick this month, but its a very self-assured and focused debut, with really well played large ensemble parts from a composer who obviously has a fully developed personal style:

    Love it. One of Abrams' best. In fact that string of albums from The Hearinga Suite through Blu Blu Blu to Family Talk is probably my favorite period for Abrams as a recording artist.

    Where the flamingos fly, Sunken treasure... more than once.

    This poll winners set has a curious 1956 version of "Where the flamingos fly" with vocals by Helen Merrill.

    Interviewer David Mar-cheese just had to go political. Yeah, things are so bad these days Sonny...how ya feelin' about the country? That question had no place in between questions about music and technique. These media people make my a-- twitch.

    Otherwise,it's nice to hear Sonny's thoughts on music and his instrument.
