    Hmm... sounds promising. I'm sucking in Miles and Trane doing Straight no Chaser on Disk 4 of their self titled CD set. Did I tell you my manager got this for me for Christmas two years ago? Best gift from a co-worker ever. :D

    Haha Amen :!:

    Right now I'm listening to Sublime's "Robbin the Hood". Raw, vulger, honest experimental stuff. What amazes me is that there is jazz mixed in with that ska, reggea, hip hop, and punk. I can't help but wonder what John Zorn could have done with them.

    Lester Young - In Washington D.C. 1956 Vol. 1

    I really love his playing on Tea For Two on this disc.

    Thanks. I appreciate that.

    Listening to Cake again. "He's going for DISTANCE. He's going for SPEED."

    I'm listening to this young alto player, Wessell Anderson. I've got him on his own cd, The Ways of Warmdaddy, and with Victor Goines on Wynton Marsalis's Plays Monk cd. Quite a player.

    Rory

    ps. There are some good photos of him and his gear on the cd. He plays a very shiny looking black lacquer Selmer--so I guess it's not a MarkVI. His mouthpiece is hard rubber with a big white dot on the shank. I've never seen that one before.

    ... Sports Talk Radio saying the Suns are trading Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks for Shaq.

    Which I think is a horrid idea.

    Oh. Music. Still doing Cake. I'm thinking I'll listen to Shickele, tonight.

    Don't get me started, dude. I've got a 30gb MP3 player and I'm not afraid to list the contents!

    Take Off!
    To the great white north
    Take Off!
    It's a beauty way to be

    Or something like that.

    First comedy album/cassette I ever bought.

    I finished the day with Art Pepper, Pepper Adams, and Warren Zevon.

    Shall I start with the "Veggie Tales" classics (some do feature sax) and go from there, or just go all the way to selections from The Rocky Horror Picture Show?

    Daughter #2 and wife have gone. I went out to something else with daughter #1.

    Daughter #2 enjoyed it, but it was a bit too long for her.

    This is what we should ALL be listening too! Cake is great! Gotta love "Fasion Nugget"

    I am, however, listening to something else...

    All through a headphone setup that cost 2x what my computer did. <g>

    I'll counter with Focus by Stan Getz.

    I've come to believe that it is hard to compare Getz and Coltrane since Coltrane was active in a lot less styles of music than Getz.

    Poncho Sanchez - Listen Here

    The Jazz101 albums are great. This is from the "Introduction to Latin Jazz" album from the Concord Jazz label.

    Resistance is useless. It is useless to resist us.
