First music of the day

Another cool morning! I’m treasuring these as they will get fewer and fewer in the coming weeks.

Robert Hunter “Tales of the Great Rum-Runners” Rounder Records/Rhino 2 cd set, disc 1

I bought this when it first came out, and I was then a recent Grateful Dead explorer. I loved the cover. . . the record not so much. A lovely gal (in all ways) I then knew liked it a lot so I gave it to her and never replaced it.

I like it a lot more now in this new release, in part because it sounds so good and my system is so different (in important, improved ways) than it was at that time, fifty years ago.

Followed by

Phil Woods Quintet “An Affair to Remember” Evidence cd

Alto Saxophone – Phil Woods
Bass – Steve Gilmore
Drums – Bill Goodwin
Piano – Jim McNeely

Clandestine Amigo

Have not heard anything about or from Jesica Carson in ages. Is she still with Octave Records?

Tom Harrell “Wise Children” Bluebird cd

A cool morning to cherish and this disc is pulling me into the music. The system is sounding so good!

A great way to kick off the week with Nat KIng Cole Live at the Blue Note Chicago. I had hoped for more open sonics, but these are fine, just a bit closed in. The audience is also having a great time!

Goro Ito and Jacques Morelenbaum “Rendez-vous in Tokyo”


Another beautiful album.

Pharoah Sanders “Ballads with Love” Venus cd

Emily was a real talent. A box set would be great.
