    Miles Davis "1958 Miles," the cd from the Complete Columbia Albums box set.

    Lovely music. Very nice sounding cd.

    I just received word and it’s official now. This is the first time that an Olivia Newton John song and an Eric Dolphy Lp have ever been referenced together in a post. Congratulations

    NP Kenny Barron and Dave Holland - The Art Of Conversation

    Listening via my Pono player as I'm on a road trip. I've never regretted buying the Pono player as it's great for travel.

    I'm using the 120-CD IRIS Media Box for most of my storage. After I repack the CDs from their jewel boxes into the JewelSleeves, these bins hold many more than 120 discs.

    I used to use basic cardboard file boxes that you can get easily at any office supply store, but after a minor flood in the garage due to a tree root blocking a drainage pipe, I realized that having a plastic bin would provide more protection from small floods than cardboard boxes and I made the switch. The IRIS bins seem like a good size overall--they hold a reasonable number of discs and don't weigh too much for one person to lift when they are full.

    Cheers!

    One caveat: the hinges for the lid clasps tend to break during shipping on these bins. I still use them, though.

    I have th Mofi LP of Sahara, and I liked it better than the original Milestone LP, less strident. I also have the Mofi sacd but not the OJC to compare to.

    David Murray – Ballads For Bass Clarinet (1991)

    1993 Disk Union Japan DIW-880 (compact disc)

    David Murray – bass clarinet
    John Hicks – piano
    Ray Drummond – bass
    Idris Muhammed – drums

    Recorded at Power Station, NYC, October 14 – 15, 1991

    A funky, soulful, stress-eliminating date that immediately brings you in and gets your toes tapping. Very nicely recorded and mastered, too. There's nothing quite like the dark, mellow, earthy sound of the bass clarinet, and it's a rare treat to hear it as the lead on this session, and not as merely sidelined into the traditional role as a 'background' instrument.

    I am on that 3 hour train ride down the misty Hudson River through the Catskill Mountains on the way to my cancer doctor. This is a great way to soothe any anxieties. I counter that with depressing Sinatra songs just for some balance.

    I have often wondered how the prisoners in the legendary (and still operating) Sing Sing Prison felt as they heard trains, the symbol of freedom, rumble through the tunnel below them.

    I heard that Liberace was supposed to make that session but his purple suit was at the cleaners so he called his friend Bill Evans to fill in for him. That's "The Abstract Truth".

    A subway platform cop just sang happy birthday over his megaphone to a passenger on the full platform. Everyone applauded. Only in New York.

    On the subway, a group of old men doowop singers sang This Magic Moment for small change. I love New York.
