Dave Brubeck - Brubeck A La Mode (1960)

I was going to say "bad cover / fine album", but I see on Wikipedia that the cover image may be a deliberate allusion to the civil rights lunch counter sit-ins of the time.

That might be true, but it is more likely a homage to an American idiom: serving something, especially a dessert, with a scoop of ice cream on it is "a la mode". So apple pie a la mode, etc.

That looks fun!

Tonight while grillin' and chillin' at a cabin in the Ozarks:
Bags' Groove (Milt Jackson, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Horace Silver, Thelonious Monk, Percy Heath, Kenny Clarke...never heard of any of these guys ;) )
Dancing in the Sky (Dr. Michael White, Lucien Barbarin, etc.)

Jan Garbarek - Selected Recordings - :rarum - ECM

Borrowed this from a friend. I didn't know Garbarek's music. Most of this I found uninteresting, but there's a few tracks that I was into. Especially the last track of the set, Parse Mihi Domine.
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

The Black Box of Jazz: CD 4


   


The really good thing about the contents of this particular box set is that most of the performances are live.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.
