Seems like a good place for this, especially for people looking for recommendations to listen to.

Thread duty:



Damn, that's good!

Well played, O Gurn!

I've been listening again to a juicy adaptation which I like every bit as well as the original:

Oooh! I don't have any Red Garland Quintet recordings (or anything by him that isn't led by Miles). I see this session produced two other albums? Presumably all mandatory listening?

Garland never made any album that wasn't worth listening to IMHO.

The other album I have is Soul Junction, and wow, it's fantastic. Definitely mandatory if you're a jazz-piano affictionato. Aces!



It's how I'm starting my morning today :)

Just received this. I really liked at least one of the tracks on the radio, but now I'm having trouble getting excited about it.

Here's what I'm planning to take on my July Fourth road trip to visit the parents.

- Cookin' / Workin' / Steamin' / Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet

plus these albums, which I've never heard before:

- Blues in Orbit, Duke Ellington
- Monk: Live at the It Club
- Complete studio recordings by the Clifford Brown, Sonny Rollins, Max Roach quintet

and a Clark Terry box set that contains:
Serenade to a Bus Seat (w/ Griffin, Kelly, Chambers, Philly Joe Jones)
Duke with a Difference
In Orbit (w/ Monk)
Out on a Limb
Color Changes
Everything Follows
All American

I've never heard any of these before, either - only Clark Terry I've got is in the Duke Ellington big band.

Being a jazz beginner is fun!

Some really good stuff there.  How far is you road trip?
About 9 hours total.

EDIT: Oops! "Everything Follows" should in fact be "Everything's Mellow", the Clark Terry album.

Und do die roten röslein stan:
Fick mich, lieber Peter!
Fick mich mehr, du hast dein ehr.
Kannstu nit, ich wills dich lern.
