Mingus, Mysterious Blues. Some great moments for trombone, here.




Veit Bach-a baker who found his greatest pleasure in a little cittern which he took with him even into the mill and played while the grinding was going on. In this way he had a chance to have the rhythm drilled into him. And this was the beginning of a musical inclination in his descendants. JS Bach

Wow, never heard of this. Looks well worth investigating.

On my commute today I'm giving a first listen to "Jazz at Massey Hall" ... you know, the Bird/Diz/Bud/Mingus/Roach concert.

Oh, yes, Mingus for sure found a home with Candid for 2-3 weeks in 1960! Candid gave him license to do whatever he wanted and Mingus, itching to record his "Original" Faubus Fables, let 'er rip with the the spoken dialogue which Columbia nixed on Ah Um.

Faubus being the then racist Arkansas governor. It's on the disc below.

Footnote: DO NOT get any other CD edition of this disc: the one below is the one to get. An earlier CD was cut from an inferior source and is in junk sound (I had it :().

more Komeda ... if I had known about this I'd have ordered before traveling to Warsaw, you can pick up the releases from Polish radio somewhere at the Palace of Culture - but shipping is cheap so I've ordered the five volumes of "Krzysztof Komeda w Polskim Radiu" and the first spin was most enjoyable ... today had the above two in the mailbox, ordered via amazon and its marketplace (I've known "Astigmatic" for years and it's excellent, but "Crazy Girl", which is really just a compilation of - very good! - tunes from two years of Jazz Jamboree shows was mostly new to me, just a few short tracks are duplicated between what I've already bought earlier)
