First music of the day


Actually a second spin of the day as I explore my recently added Blue Note Tone Poet LPs. Classic Kenny Dorham and Jackie McLean on what i’d consider to be an essential Tone Poet reissue.

“Classic Bobby Hutcherson Blue Note Sessions 1963 to 1970” disc VI


This just arrived from Tokyo! 11LP set. Surprisingly good pressing if you are into 90’s Japanese Techno/Jazz.

The rain has stopped. Which makes it easier to listen to this one. Re-listening to “Part 2” of this concert as I was a bit distracted by questions about kitchen colors and textures from my wife when it was last playing.

Fantastic pianism!

“The Bobby Gordon Sextet” Jazzology cd

Mr. Gordon knows how to capture the spirit of my favorite clarinetist, Charles Ellsworth Russell.


Being summer there have been many distractions, a good thing IME. Mostly outdoor activities, enjoying my newly aquired Swift Cruiser pack boat. A most fine alternative to my kayak(s). As such I’ve been away from the forum. A break can be a good thing as well.

Regarding a first spin I’ve had the recent release from Marcus Gilmore’s Black Editions Archie series, Webo, for a few weeks and until this morning have yet to give it a listen. Challenging music, which I happen to enjoy. Having listened to the first two LP I am moving on to the third and final record. The trio on this release is Milford Graves - drums, William Parker - bass, and Charles Gayle. This is available on BandCamp as a digital download or my preferred format as a triple LP box set. Fine sonics to boot.

The birds outside my window are also enjoying these Mozart piano sonatas as they sing along.
