A little bit of Jazzy-Sinatra!
Peggy Lee - Black Coffee
I'm a programme on BBC Radio 3, about Alice Coltrane. Wow. Some of it's weird, but it's rather brilliant, in its own way.
I love Tony!

Hey, have you listened to Lalo Schifrin's non-film stuff? Here's one of my favorite pieces of music, his "Latin Jazz Suite" (this is the first movement)
I'm also a big fan of Chucho Valdez, here's a piece he wrote with his band Irakere:
I feel like you'd like these, so I figured I would share them!
Great stuff, @Nick Parker ; thanks.
The Irakere has a Chick Corea feel, and the Schifrin has a Dave Weckl feel, if you know what I mean.
"Bet.e & Stef deftly transport their listener into an intricate fusion of the lush and sensual worlds of Bossa Nova, Samba rhythms and timeless Jazz. Bet.e’s natural, seemingly effortless vocals are supported by Stef’s guitar. In turn, his vocals intertwine beautifully with hers, resulting in one of those ultra-rare intuitive, 50/50 collaborations akin to Louie & Ella.'' ---- from a CBC Radio concert review
Bet.e & Stef is a Canadian bossa nova and jazz group from Montreal, Quebec, consisting of vocalist and percussionist Elizabeth "Bet.e" Provencher and vocalist and guitarist Stéphane "Stef" Carreau. They are best known for their 2002 album Day By Day which sold 200,000 copies and were shortlisted for the Juno Award for New Group Of The Year at the Juno Awards of 2003.
Thelonius Monk's Japanese Folk Song. I believe it was used in La La Land.
Litte cozy evening... drinking my favourite scotch.
Gotta love Claude Bolling.
20 years ago, Frank Sinatra left us.
I could encode some CDs for my new FLAC player.
But which albums too choose, that's always the problem!
My current Frank Sinatra 3 top Choices:
- In the wee small hours
- Come Fly With Me
Listened to Dave Holland Big Band (this CD) today. Amazing musicianship and musicmaking!
This guy does plays the sax and the piano like there's no tomorrow.
Here he demos for Spectrasonics.
I'm listening to this wonderful new album of traditional Cuban mambo/jazz this morning and imagining myself under an umbrella on a hot day drinking a mojito and eating arroz con pollo and fried plantains. Preferably while wearing a panama hat, sunglasses, and a linen shirt like it's 1958 or some shit. This is the Westworld park fantasy I'd pay to go to. The 1950s Cuba of Godfather Part II, Graham Greene, and Hemingway (with a side dish of Dr. No Jamaica).
