Just in the last couple of days before sleeping before working overnights. Stan Kenton The LA Neophonic orchestra. Stan Kenton's West Side Story. Alamire singing Eric Whitacre. On YouTube the Dallas Winds playing Warren Benson's "The leaves are Falling." I do mixes like this a few times a week. _________________ "There are two sides to a trumpeter's personality,

To feed my interest in recording industry history, I'm listening to 16 sides for Capitol by Les Paul and Mary Ford, including How High The Moon, the first recording created by overdubbing on a modified Ampex machine. Naturally, these are shellac 78s and are being played on my restored 1928 Columbia 112A gramophone. I am audiophile geekman!
That is absolutely wonderful music. Mary Ford and Les Paul together are so great! _________________ Bb: 1995 Schilke X3L AS SP, Yamaha YTR-6335S

Sticking with Trumpeters - Two players that do not get talked about often, Roy Hargrove and Donald Byrd. Both have a lot of repertoire on Spotify if not too familiar to you. Check them out. See what you think. _________________ When the spiker speaks, nobody listens

I received the "Complete Blue Mitchell Albums Collection 1958 to 1963"recordings as a gift for Christmas. It has been getting extensive play time. There has also been a lot of Clark Terry going in my ears lately. _________________ Music is a fire in your belly, fighting to get out. You'd better put a horn in the way before someone gets hurt.

I've been listening to the late Wallace Roney. What awesome chops he had. While some have unfairly given him grief for sounding so much like '60s Miles, I hear it more as carrying the torch. Just as a generation of trumpet players sounded like Louis, or how Clifford played like the next iteration of Fats Navarro, I think it's wonderful to hear Roney's deep immersion in Miles' concept and taking it to the next level. Just fantastic stuff.
