Loved it!

Yeah! Even though it was originally just a stopgap roundup of unreleased pieces from wildly disparate sessions, I've always enjoyed that collection.

now:



Milt Jackson - Goodbye (1974)
George Benson - Bad Benson (1974)



Joe Farrell - Upon This Rock (1974)
Don Sebesky - The Rape Of El Morro (1975)



Milt Jackson - Olinga (1975)
Jim Hall - Concierto (1975)

Yeah, the title track is incredible!

After the incredible concert on Saturday, I felt like revisiting the few Malcolm Braff recordings I've accumulated in the past years ... and I have ordered several missing ones, filling some gaps.
Tornate, o cari baci,
a ritornarmi in vita,
baci al mio cor digiun esca gradita!
Voi di quel dolce amaro
per cui languir m’è caro,
di quel dolce non meno
nettare che veleno
pascete i miei famelici desiri,
luci in cui dolci provo anco i sospiri!

Last night, revisited the fourth (and last) of my current Braff holdings - more are on the way now, inspired by the glorious concert last weekend. Then gave a very first spin to the recent (2016) Les McCann - and that one is very good indeed! Looking for more of those Live in Paris releases, some of which are DL only ... and stumbled over one that has Barney Wilen playing - took crappy amazon music half an hour to load last night, but I was finally able to download it and have played the first half (up to the first - of four - tracks with Wilen) on the commute to the office this morning (the Bennett trio consists of him on organ, Jimmy Gourley on guitar and Kenny Clarke on drums - fine group):

Tornate, o cari baci,
a ritornarmi in vita,
baci al mio cor digiun esca gradita!
Voi di quel dolce amaro
per cui languir m’è caro,
di quel dolce non meno
nettare che veleno
pascete i miei famelici desiri,
luci in cui dolci provo anco i sospiri!

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!
Tornate, o cari baci,

Voi di quel dolce amaro
per cui languir m’è caro,

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.

On the morning commute ... love LH&R, no one even gets close to what they did!

Now:



One of my favorite younger jazz trumpeters. This is an amazing album.
