    Yeah, they're a great, great band. I'm also a Blasters fan. I listened to More Fun In The New World last night also. I've seen X three times dating from the early 00s. Ray had great taste!

    I just listened to Van Halen's first album, and now I'm trying to bring it down a bit with Thelonious.

    In the earphones the past hour, Michel Petrucciani Trio - Pianism

    I saw Michel live at the old Yoshi's in Oakland in the 1990s. He appeared with the great bassist Dave Holland and a drummer whom I can't recall.

    He had a medical condition similar to dwarfism, and was very small. It was astounding how he could play jazz piano like a master with such short arms and hands.

    After playing awhile, I think just before intermission, Holland lifted him into his arms and held him aloft to wave to and recognize the audience applause, before carrying him off to the intermission break room.

    His condition caused other medical problems, and he sadly died in his 30s. Quite a talent.

    Listening to the mono mix, which is only a fold-down (except for the opening track). I like listening to it, anyway.

    Trivia: Björk in Scandinavia is the name of the Birch tree. But in Iceland I think it's called Birki. Yeah you get the similarity.

    It's a beautiful name - Björk

    It's late per
    It's late period Monk and not his best live stuff, but it's still very good. I bought it because it comes with a DVD of the set.

    That's exactly my thought, with the difference that I didn't buy it.

    Spun an old classic today. Those boys are still timeless. Have to say that Joni Mitchell's Coyote guest spot is about my favorite song of her's too.

    Adding a smoky bonus track here as well, from a Robbie R. solo album:

    Take it easy on yourself. I have this one and do not know it well.

    Neither do I know this one well, but I like it.

    New Yawk mini-salute.

    This CD sounds great. And "Song For The Man," what genre is that? I have no idea. Early 70s game show?
