Jazz for aficionados

Jazz for aficionados

I'm going to review records in my collection, and you'll be able to decide if they're worthy of your collection. These records are what I consider "must haves" for any jazz aficionado, and would be found in their collections. I wont review any record that's not on CD, nor will I review any record if the CD is markedly inferior. Fortunately, I only found 1 case where the CD was markedly inferior to the record.

Our first album is "Moanin" by Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers. We have Lee Morgan , trumpet; Benney Golson, tenor sax; Bobby Timmons, piano; Jymie merrit, bass; Art Blakey, drums.

The title tune "Moanin" is by Bobby Timmons, it conveys the emotion of the title like no other tune I've ever heard, even better than any words could ever convey. This music pictures a person whose down to his last nickel, and all he can do is "moan".

"Along Came Betty" is a tune by Benny Golson, it reminds me of a Betty I once knew. She was gorgeous with a jazzy personality, and she moved smooth and easy, just like this tune. Somebody find me a time machine! Maybe you knew a Betty.

While the rest of the music is just fine, those are my favorite tunes. Why don't you share your, "must have" jazz albums with us.

Enjoy the music.

Good , because I look for the Truth .

too lazy to go back to modern President .

It is a FACT that some where between 4 and 8 million Native Americans were

killed after the civil war .

Out .


Perfect mahgister,!    As I have said before many times , IMO Montreal is the best City in  in North America .

Then they are not anti military they are against most useless wars americans did after 1945

In other words, any war fought by America that's not to save their asses, is a useless war.

educate yourself, socialism is not communism

I may have been confused by the Name USSR (Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics).  I am now educated.

Yes like in national-socialism....

Same name...

But do you think Finland Sweden and other similar countries resembling Quebec are communists or Nazis because the name " socialism" is glued to the definition of USSR and NAZISM ?

Do you think a country where corporations had " legal persona" on par with humans and a country where their Lobbies and bankers rules over presidents even if they are completely alike one another like in this crisis, do yo think that this fusion of corporations and of the state behind closed doors, called "fascism" in Mussollini Italia dont exist in any form wharsoever in America because the right "name label " is not used by sold and controlled " journalism"?

If you think so you are deluded....Trumpian or Bidenian voters dont matter much, word dont matter much.... Reality is there to be seen and understood even without "words calling"

I will mute myself.... Dont add propaganda here though which want to make equal word with others words and the REALITY to some other words...

Reality has no name.......


Anyway my best to you and thanks from all of us for all your big work signaling to us the best in jazz...I feel i must apologize for my post....
