Default What are you listening to (II)

Dedicated to Jeff Scott, without whom this saga would have never reached this stage.

For my part, my vinyl jazz collection is presently in storage, so I won’t burden you with the details of those.

Also applicable to “listening to” is “on your mind” which at this time for me is “Heartless” by Heart as posted previously in the 1976 footage from part 1.

Charles Mingus [and friends]: Blues & Roots
Atlantic 1305, from February 4, 1959/ released 1960

I think all in all 1959 was a year of crisis for horn based American jazz - here, in 6* original composition/arrangements by Mingus, melodic elegance takes a back seat to raw emotion & expression. While all this cacophony was going on, the cool jazz guitarists elsewhere were honing their craft to take jazz into a new (and solidifying) classic direction and purpose. This Mingus album I’ve found is a difficult but ultimately cathartic experience.

*6 on vinyl/ 10 on reissue compilation

PS. Fantastic vocalist/keyboardist/recorder player Peter Jones is blind.
Guitarist/flautist Andy Latimer has polycythemia vera which progressed to myelofibrosis. He was near death until he went through a rather harrowing bone marrow transplant in 2007 that reduced him to a skeleton. He has made substantial steps towards recovery since but still lives with restrictions.


It was a real treat for them to sell out Royal Albert Hall last year. I pre-ordered this BluRay earlier this year and am waiting for it to arrive.

Nice voice, great band and a mighty fine picker!

I've been listening to what the robots send me purposely staying away from old favorites or what I know. I've tuned it with some like and dislike and go to the Apple Music "New Music" mix. If I like something I add it to a specific playlist and then go pursue similar but must be unknown stuff.

Please get my humor in the context of another thread. Okay boomer? (I am a boomer).

My exceptions to it must be new are a list on my Apple Watch ideal for running tempo, stuff the family plays, and old Jamaican greats fueled by planning some excursions to spots in Jamaica most tourists probably do not visit.

What's funny about the kids into some old stuff and the OK Boomer theme is I keep realizing how bad a lot of people's good old days were.

Grant Green: Grant’s First Stand (from January 28,1961)
Grant Green: Green Street (from April 1,1961)
Bill Evans Trio: Sunday at the Village Vanguard (from June 25,1961)

1961 was a hot year for jazz/ all of the above before the Beatles broke through and the end of music (humor)

Also have been listening to:

Wes Montgomery: Boss Guitar (from April 22,1963)

All these recordings are in the jazz trio idiom, which should be recognized in a class of its own for inventive melody and counterpoint, and maximum room for the soloist in a group setting.

As I am planning to go to the Celtic Colours International Festival in October on Cape Breton, I am going through their past performances.

Here is one of the more "zen" offerings. Beautifully played, sung, filmed and recorded.
