    It's official: Gandalfe is really a BOT.

    Listening to Schickele on American Originals. I should write up a review of that CD.

    I'm not a BOT to argue that. :emoji_rolling_eyes:

    I'm listening to Darren Motamedy's 'Mile High' from his 'Dangerously Close' CD.

    Today I've been listening to The Dave Brubeck Quartet. You can't go wrong with Paul Desmond!

    Last year I reviewed Doug Ramsey's book "Take Five: The Public and Private Lives of Paul Desmond". It was an interesting look at Desmond and his life and times.

    I listened to Bob Berg - Another Standard today. There are some interesting and cool treatments of tunes mostly popularized by Frank Sinatra, although there's also a version of the Beatles' Michelle.

    Bob Gordon - Complete Recordings.

    A gift for my birthday from my wife. If you want to hear a monster bari sax player then you should check out Bob Gordon. He died in the 1950's in a car accident. I would place him along side Serge Chaloff, Gerry Mulligan, and Pepper Adams in terms of important players to come out of that era.

    You can find the CD here:

    Nick Brignola

    His version of "My Foolish Heart" is one of the great ones.

    Wynton Marsalis StandardTime 4--the one with the Monk tunes. This one also features Wessell Anderson interestingly. Anybody else heard of this guy? He's from New Orleans I think--he's not the swinginest alto player I've ever heard, but he's got killer altissimo.

    The soundtrack from the anime, Noir.

    FWIW, the anime's very decent. Not as good as some, but better than most.

    Cat Blues from the Seatbelts "Cowboy Bebop" original soundtrack CD. Listening to that bass clarinet pretty much started me on my quest to learn to play the instrument. :cool:

    See? I got someone hooked.

    While the instrumentals are great, I'm very fond of the vocals, particularly on the Tank! The! Best! recording. Hey, it's even more fun listening to Mai Yamane belting out, "Gotta Knock a Little Harder" (at this moment, probably my all-time favorite song) when you realize that she's not some whisky-voiced 40-something American :).

    Pepper Adams - 10 to 4 at the 5 Spot.

    I'm on a bari player kick. Earlier I was listening to some Mulligan and Desmond.

    He reminds me of Santa in that photo. The cheeks and the beard. Sonny's just great though.
