a small parcel with new Ellingtonia (I guess in the range of discs 125-129...) has arrived today, and this one is getting its very first spin:



glorious indeed - prime Ellington!

Did you ever hear the British equivalent of Kenton "Ted Heath" he really was one of the top big bands of that era
Andante always true to his word has kicked the Marijuana soaked bot with its addled brain in to touch.

Listening to this album yet again:





Eick's trumpet tone reminds me of the great late Kenny Wheeler and, like Wheeler, his note choice and the emotion behind what he's playing really tugs at the heartstrings.

One of my favorite jazz saxophonists. Such remarkable consistency in his style and playing through his entire musical life.

Last hour I've been watching lots of Lenny Breau on Youtube, he's such an impressive guitarist with such a tender expressiveness  :D


https://youtu.be/TZKUcGTmvos

Yeah, he was a fine, fine player. :) You ever listen to Ted Greene? Or even Danny Gatton?
