    When it comes to jazz, I dig all the more progressive acts that Blue Note, etc. are cashing in on lately, but, to me, nothing, and I mean goddamn nothing, beats Dixieland. 

    It’s a trip, it’s got a funky beat, and I can bug out to it. 
    Preservation Jazz Hall Band. For sure! Happy feel good stuff that will continue forever.

    I've never been a big fan of Dixieland but several years ago my father invite me to go with him to see the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.  I was really surprised how much I enjoyed seeing those guys play!  And the venue added to the whole affair- they played under a tent with saw dust on the ground.  That was a good time!

    my entry was really Brubeck. That laid backish loungy feel.Took me a minute to come to Miles(50s and 60s) and other artists of that era style/mindset....

    havent delved too much in big band but have a couple compilations....

    these are more brass oriented.

    tried Wes Montgomery, not sure I follow yet...
    I don't like orchestra jazz.  Just can't get into it.  Even my MOFI Porgy and Bess gets little play. 

    I respect the hell out of good big band jazz outfits- Ellington, Basie- for sure.  But like you, it's just not my thing, with one major exception- Sun Ra and company.   But that's a whole other thing! 
    I’ve been enjoying this since it arrived. Some folks on discogs have complained about the paper sleeves and finger prints on the new wax but I had none of those issues. Really good pressing

    Nice!  I might have to watch for that one.  I really like the three Sun Ra I have on Yard Art/ Strut- Abstract Dreams, Discipline 27-II, and In the Orbit of Ra.  Great sounding pressings!

    I’ve got Sleeping Beauty and Singles Volume 2 on my Wantlist from Strut/Art Yard. You would love this boxset. It has the original Philly Jazz commercial pressing and a 1978 alternate pressing which is the version only sold at the shows if I’m not mistaken.

    Here's another one of those less-often listened to jazz album I have that I played today:
    Song X album cover

    I will confess to the fact that I had actually thought of moving this one on.  But when I played it today, besides some others here, the last cut, "Long Time No See", easily convinced me to keep this one.  Just following the last few quick notes of that last song, my reaction was a totally involuntary brief burst of laughter.  I find that only happens when something musical is startlingly brilliant.  And, oh, that it is!

    Continuing my diving back into Ornette Coleman, I just listened to all four side of this 1965 concert.  Want to fry some brain cells whilst expanding said brain?  Try this one on some time.  Whew!  I'm done in!

    Excellent article, thanks M!
    I notice the name Buddy Bolden comes in to play there.  I read something about him recently in the Ornette Coleman biography I'm reading that ties in nicely:


    "There are four artists whose music and presence were major turning points in the course of jazz history: Buddy Bolden, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, and Ornette Coleman. Bolden, the legendary first player of jazz may be only a legend: his playing career ended years before the first jazz recordings were made, we we know of him only through his contemporaries' memories and Bunk Johnson's imitations of a Bolden performance, three to four decades after the event. We know, however, that Armstrong's late 1920's masterpieces virtually defined the word jazz for all time, separating this young and fragile music from the American popular musics that surrounded it- music that had the potential to wholly absorb it, in the way ragtime was absorbed. Nearly two decades later, in the decline of the Swing Era that Armstrong had inspired, Parker climaxed a generation's harmonic and structural discoveries with a matching genius, all as elements of a lyricism whose purity and exaltation are almost unrivaled in the art's history. Three years after Parker's death, and slightly over a dozen years since he had led his first recording session, Ornette Coleman emerged on record, with a musical principle- "the pattern for the tune will be forgotten, and the tune itself will be the pattern"- to overturn the very foundations of jazz for its entire previous existence."

    From Ornette Coleman, A Harmolodic Life, by author and former editor of Down Beat magazine, John Litweiler.

    Strut is doing a fantastic job on all these Sun-Ra reissues. Just a wild ride. No wonder Pete Townshend went into a record store in Chicago asking if they had any Ra and when the guy said “yeah, all of it” Pete just grabbed them … all 250 of them.

    Today I went to see one of my friends who I haven’t seen since before Covid. Her apartment is two apartments combined into one giant apartment. Anyway, the reason for posting is because her bedroom (which used to be its own apartment) was where Charlie Mingus lived. Here is a photo of the space. Interestingly, after Mingus died the apartment was used by Jim Henson to build and repair muppets. Cool history. 



    This is only 1/2 of the whole apartment. For some reason whenever I come home from there my own apartment looks like a shoebox. And she only lives down the street from me.

    Ahh!   Mingus, Henson- fantastic!
    That's only half?  Compared to a few apts I've visited in NYC, that place is huge!

    Nope. She owns it. I will just say she is a woman of means. This is just the bedroom. The other half with the living room and kitchen is about the same size. But really cool that it used to belong to Charlie Mingus.

    Question for Sun Ra fans familiar with the highly rated Atlantis record:  Thoughts on this one?  It's highly rated on a few sites (not that I necessarily pay too much heed to reviewers), and widely enough so as to make me wonder what it is I'm missing.  I have several Sun Ra records and have been a fan for a long time, but Atlantis, though certainly not "bad", is one of my least favorites.  I guess part of it is that the screeching keyboards on the long side B cut are hard on my damaged ears, but I try to listen beyond that to the music itself and I just can't seem to dig out what it is that makes this a highly regarded Sun Ra LP.  Thoughts?
