Awesome score. I'd be jealous if I didn't know you would take care of them and enjoy them. If you ever want to read the essay about Commodore that was part of the booklet, it's available in a book, "Reading Jazz." Fascinating stuff.

I love the music. I bet you'll enjoy a lot of it too.

Lon, I have that book.  One of hundreds of books on Jazz and Music that I bought but, as usual, I've only read a tiny fraction of them.

In the liner notes of the "Complete Recordings of Billie Holiday on Decca" there was a write up of Milt Gabler's history with Billie Holiday and his work with her at Commodore Records then Decca. Fascinating stuff. Mark.

Well, good, you have the essay then. I bought all three of the booklets from Mosaic a few years after the record sets sold out. They still had booklets.

An amazing history, those three sets.

One of (many) albums that I appreciate more and more as time goes by, they spin, and the system keeps slowly blooming.

This CD now..."Masada 2".  Yesterday I played John Zorn's "Circle Maker"...Mark Ribot's guitar playing sometimes reminds me of Dick Dale's surf music.  Listen and tell me if you hear it too.  Mark.

Also last night, I played this favorite CD...Just exquisite with the Audeze headphones, Taboo MK III and Silver Widow cables....of course the CSP3 and Jolida 100 are there too.

Then I played this promo with selections from the 8 CD Box set of Coltrane's Quartet...it had at least three cuts from Crescent, one from a Love Supreme and more....nine in total for over an hour of this marvelous Quartet in action.  Mark.

I just don't enjoy the Hartman collaboration the way I used to, over time I've just lost interest in Hartman's voice and phrasing. Probably the one I listen to the least of all the Coltrane Impulses.

Not saying it's not great stuff, I've just become finnicky about volcalists and how they're recorded makes a difference too.

Yes Lon,  you're finicky...hehe  But then aren't we all?
After finding that you tube clip, I've again been trapped in another you tube adventure....ear buds on.  It's begun with more Zorn cuts but may venture else where....I'm thinking Avi Cohen.  Mark.

PS...I've decided to listen to this concert on you tube...Avishai Cohen - LIVE @ Cully Jazz   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEhz_0yTavE

Yeah, I'm even more finnicky now that I don't really live in my own home and have less and less time it seems to listen to "my" music.  I wish I could play more of my music at Mom and Dad's but . .. they don't "get" a lot of it.

By the way, Cohen's bass looks a lot like mine (that sits far too long in its corner looking good but unplayed) even down to the pickup, but I could use a real heavy duty "peg leg" for mine like that.

I just finished listening to the Avi Cohen Trio in concert from above.  Here is a song from the album they were promoting...I may have to buy it soon.

Here's a cut from the album..."Seven Seas"

Next I'm going to listen to this concert at the Blue Note in 2006 documented on both DVD and CD...below is the link to the DVD...

PS...for those unwilling to invest an hour listening to the whole set, here's one song, 10 minutes..."Nu Nu"... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1n8n3HiPmw

Reading a dissertation someone forwarded to me written on Miles Davis' "Jack Johnson." Fascinating. Wish I could listen to the recording but can't as I am here at my parens' all day (no goodnik brothers aren't coming to give me some time away). Listening to Beethoven piano concerti instead.
