    I have been on kind of on a Charlie Hunter kick of late...

    This 3LP EVERY BABOON IS GETTING AHEAD UNTIL THEY GET PUNCHED IN THE MOUTH BUNDLE [VINYL] was just the thing!

    A tremendous talent, all three albums, playing in one room together, cut right to tape.

    I'm having a bit of a tension filled week so Jimmy Smith's Cool Blues is helping me out at the moment...

    Thanks, man! This Jimmy Smith is really doing the trick of distracting me. Jimmy's organ sounds nice and dirty and Eddie McFadden's guitar is on a delicious edge of distortion - perhaps unusual for a 1958 live session? It's sweeping me away, in a good way. Maybe I should put on some Dolphy afterwards!

    @Berthold, you made me time travel recently. I was raised on Artie Shaw and Glenn Miller, amongst dozens of other performers. My mother (born in 1930) was a music freak--in an excellent way :agree:

    So, now playing full blast in this house, much to my partner's dismay:



    Artie Shaw's biggest hit, "Begin the Beguine" (this clip is from 1938).

    Hey, mom... :)

    (I know: such vanilla music. But that's a part of me.)

    A long time ago I discovered Howard Roberts thanks to Tribe Called Quest’s track “Jam” which makes sweet use of his guitar sampled from the tune “Dirty Old Bossa Nova.” Also cool is that Q-tip collaborated and produced, at least some of, Kurt Rosenwinkel’s Heartcore album.

    And, I’ve always loved the spaceship opening to the Reachin’ album (Planets) which uses a sample from the first track on Herbie’s Sextant.

    I love Fred Hersch, and I love Fred Hersch best in a trio -- I loved that trio he had with Drew Gress and Tom Rainey and later Nasheet Waits, and I love the trio he has now with John Hébert and Eric McPherson.... and every time I return to that Sunday Night at the Vanguard album by the latter trio, I'm more and more knocked out....not that there aren't muscular, uptempo numbers, but even playing those, that night's performance was just a think of tender gossamer beauty.

    A Day In the Life: Impressions of Pepper Impulse, various artists

    Got this one in the mail today and really liked it. I ordered it on the basis of a Shabaka and the Ancestors cut, but thought the whole set was strong. Recommended.

    This was my parents' "song".

    Howard Roberts was my gateway into jazz. I checked a Roberts LP called Sounds out of the public library when I was in high school. It was filled with cheesy top 40 covers, but "Moondance" was on it and it caught my ear. I soon found a couple of earlier LP's (HR Is A Dirty Guitar Player and Something's Cookin') at flea market prices and got pulled in to the almost soul-jazz vibe. The rest...

    Cool! HR Is A Dirty Guitar Player is the album the song is from that A Tribe Called Quest sampled. I have one other HR album besides that one but I don’t remember the name. I’ll have to dig them out soon.

    In 9th grade I joined my high school jazz band and we played “Begin the Beguine.” I didn’t know a thing about jazz. Unfortunately, playing in the jazz band didn’t lead me to discovering jazz either, that came a few years later (thanks to The Doors and Oliver Stone).

    Yeah but I'm betting it laid the groundwork, subconscious or not.

    Now, Lon, you certainly don't want to start the pronunciation vs enunciation debate on this thread, right, my friend? ;)

    Its a posthumous release from 1980. I have it as a download from the now defunct Pono store which had many out of print releases in lossless format. I really miss that site.

    EDIT: its currently available at the TIDAL store as a download. I tty to avoid physical media these days as I have no space left at home.
