    Thanks for the recommendations @chervokas and @Lonson . that's exactly what I was looking for! :righton:

    Now playing Art Tatum's 20th Century Piano Genius. Like most swing era musicians' stuff in my collection, it's from the fifties.

    Speaking of jazz piano, and, as I was, about Nat Cole and the late '40s Capitol transcription sessions....dig Nat and Oscar Moore, the man who all but invented post war, small combo jazz guitar during the war... in '46....

    In Toronto we have had ice pellets and freezing rain all day. Now the wind has picked up and the power is out. Looks like I need me one of these after all.

    Bought the 2016 vinyl re-issue of my favorite Pat Metheny album:


    Nice pressing: flat and very quiet, sounds great.

    Don Byas 1945 Jazz Society. I found this in the garage in a box of Jazz the other day. Sounded good while doing supper prep/cooking tonight. Love his tone and playing.

    NP Sonny Clark Trio - The 1960 Time Sessions (Tompkins Square)

    I've had the sacd our host mastered for years but couldn't resist a vinyl version. I haven't done a direct compare but the vinyl seems a little toppy or analytical but I'll need to spin the disc again to be sure.

    Sorry to hear of your power issues. Hope that gets cleared up asap. We're supposed to get some wet and windy weather tomorrow night. This has been a cooler than usual spring for us.

    Btw, I mailed off the book on Tuesday so it should arrive this week sometime depending on our postal services.

    San Francisco, CA
    Recorded February 12, 1964, Philharmonic Hall of Lincoln Center, NY

    Miles Davis - Trumpet
    George Coleman - Tenor Sax
    Herbie Hancock - Piano
    Ron Carter - Double Bass
    Tony Williams - Drums

    This could be one of my 'all time' favorite live recordings and some of my favorite playing by Davis. I can't seem to stop playing this one.

    Maybe if Don Byas had stayed in the USA and signed with Norman Granz' Clef/Verve Records in the 1950's, we would have a series of great LPs that never ended up being recorded

    Mark Shim's Turbulent Flow. Contains a superb interpretation of Joe Henderson's Recorda Me.

    Yesterdays spin, perfect for a Sunday afternoon rain storm.

    The Paul Bley Quartet
    ECM vinyl.

    You think you know where it's going as one of those moody ECM chill type of albums and all of a sudden Frisell drops the hammer and goes nuts and then Surman and Bley skitter off in all kinds of directions. One of those I don't play often but enjoy when I do plus it's always nice to hear Paul Motian. This deserves to be back in print.

    streaming - Jelly Roll Morton - The Complete Library of Congress Recordings By Alan Lomax (Rounder / 2005)

    Jelly Roll sure knows how to tell a yarn. Wonderful. I don't own a physical copy of this although the piano style CD-box looks fun. One of the advantages of working a studio / workshop environment I can often play music at work (although not exactly to audiophile standards - an old ipod speaker re-purposed with an adapter to 3.5mm jack).
