That was a good haul, 'SK.

OK, so I may already have Waltz for Debby twice (once on CD, once on vinyl) and Sunday at the Village Vanguard and the combined disc, At the Village Vanguard, but I couldn’t resist this, all five sets complete from 25 June 1961 in playlist order. It is, after all THE most divine music. 

Ordered 4 more CD's from the Hubro Label - http://hubromusic.com/news/ 

Morten Qvenild | Personal Piano
Christian Wallumrød Ensemble | Kurzsam and Fulger
Moskus | Ulv Ulv
Frode Haltli | Avant Folk

Excellent interview with Andreas Meland, whose recommendations at the end will make me poorer, but richer.

An edited exchange!
AAJ: Still, what is jazz to you and is it important at all to have this definition?

 

AM: But rules are not important to me. I'm not against anything or pro anything, it just has to be interesting.

Paul Simon - Graceland The Remixes

Absolutely nothing like the original but very cool with lots of toe tapping opportunities.

I'm impressed you have found something positive in this. I have given it a couple of spins (streaming it) because as a Paul Simon fan, it was on my list. I have tried but really can't find anything positive to say about it. I didn't find anything particularly inventive in the various approaches or that they brought anything to the original songs. I would recommend anyone interested try to give it a streaming listen first.

Star compilation tribute album to Muscle Shoals, covers of some of the biggest hits that came out of Alabama. I don’t know a lot of the artists, so it’ll be a good learning experience, I usually find at least one new act to collect from this sort of compilation. It’ll be worth it just for  Gotta Serve Somebody - Jamey Johnson, Willie Nelson, Chris Stapleton & Lee Ann Womack.

A visit to Fat Cat Records last evening.........
