    Another classic Blue Note that sat on the shelf for 14 years after being recorded in 1962 as part of those double LP re-issue series (along with Hub Cap). Why? I have no idea, this is a gem of an album, Shorter on sax, Walton piano, Workman bass, Philly Joe Jones on piano. Basically Jazz Messengers with Philly for Art and varied material. Two Cal Massey songs and 2 Hubbard originals Philly Mignon and Nostrand and Fulton.

    That was when President Carter said to Cecil Taylor, "I wish I could play piano like that!"

    If any vinyl heads out there are not fussed about getting the original versions of lps these odd 2 lp partial compilations on Jazzland are a good way to get early ( usually early 60s) good sounding pressings cheaply.

    What are the Mingus albums w Eric Dolphy?

    Now playing midnight at noon. I like Mingus when they are nice and noisy, seemingly about to fall apart. Then it snaps right into form! Like transformers (more than meets the eye)

    No, our family lived in Ethiopia from '66 through '68 and Swaziland from '69 to '72. In school I had French as a subject all those years in Africa, and traveled through Europe spending a week in France on the way back to America. I've had teachers who were actually French and one who was French-Canadian. . . I no longer speak French very well, but I can read it a bit.

    When I was a kid, we were on a very tight budget. My mother got me into having bread and milk for breakfast or lunch by letting me tear up the piece of bread and pour milk on it. It was powdered milk. It got soggy real fast, but the fun part was trying to eat it all before it became mush. My sisters still talk about the powdered milk days. I mentioned that my mother once told me she had read that powdered milk had less radioactive Strontium-90 than whole milk (radioactive fallout on dairy farms was a serious issue in the bomb testing days of the late 40's and early 50's), but they said it was all due to needing to save money.

    I think I should try a bowl of bread and milk for old time sake and raise a glass (of water) to my Mom.

    My mom ( like most moms ) tried to get us to switch to powdered milk in the 1970s. She was crafty. She bided her time until after my brother and I came in from playing road hockey all afternoon. She had put the powdered milk in real milk jugs. Naturally we ran into the kitchen thirsty from 4 hours of road hockey , wolfed down a couple glasses each along with the requisite cookies without even tasting it. She waited tell we were watching tv to ask if we liked the milk and after we absent mindedly nodded yes she claimed victory saying “see you couldn’t tell he difference!!!! It’s just as good!!! We suffered through 6 months of drinking that stuff....
    Edit: I forgot to mention how of course now I much admire and respect that clever strategy.

    I was raised on powdered milk too and basically starved throughout childhood, had horrible headaches. Canned frozen orange juice, too. Really nasty stuff and frozen peas and corn. It's a miracle I survived.

    Worst of all, the only two jazz albums in my dad's collection were Kulu Se Mama and a Brubeck record.

    My Dad insisted on a certain brand of coffee, which had gone way up in price. My Mom saved a few empty cans of that brand and put the more economical brand in that can. He never knew.

    Looks like it lost out to Hub-Tones, recorded a couple months before in October 1962, when Blue Note chose a new Freddie Hubbard release in late 1963. And when it came time for another in 1964, they put out the more recent "Breaking Point!" session from May of that year. I also wonder if Hubbard's Impulse! releases in '63-64 might have dissuaded Blue Note from putting out more than one album per year at that time. They probably didn't want the new releases competing head-to-head.

    Anything with Wayne Shorter from that period must be pretty strong, though. Does it sound a lot like a Jazz Messengers date?

    Bureaucracies crush creativity, but they tend to give one a blanket of security. I often wondered which to choose.

    Now that I have that false sense of security (long retired), I think I should have chosen a creative life.

    But my most creative friend is now homeless.

    I have many friends that chose a creative life, some within bureaucracies, some independent, who have homes, and worked harder and became more successful that they say was because they looked forward to getting up and working every day. Doing something just for the sake of making money would've crushed them, they say. I regret not following my creative side further then I did, and believe my life, and my wallet, would've been better off for it. That said, it most likely wouldn't allowed me to the benefits that a stable job did, mostly committing myself more to my marriage and child. And even with that stability there was much room for improvement. But I digress.
