    Yup, I agree... I enjoyed reading about interesting information on many of these monsters. It was educational to me.

    It's the R&D department for music.

    Nice! I probably posted this elsewhere but so be it. I recently snagged fifty-some CDs from a couple sizeable boxes of CDs that had been donated to the museum where I volunteer. Count Basie, Chet Baker, Cal Tjader, Ray Brown, Tal Farlow, Herb Ellis, Kenny Burell, Gary Burton, and lots more. I did make a good donation to the museum for what I took. Now I have to rein in my listening or I won't find my way to the woodshed; and I never tire of woodshedding!

    Jumped in the truck, popped in the CD, and heard what I though was engine trouble, as I drove down the road...

    ... soon realized, it was the intro to the first song, 'Concierto de Aranjuez'...

    ... loosely translated? When my mechanic, Aranjuez, performs a tire balance and rotation, the 'thwip, thwip' of the impact wrench is like music to my ears...

    ... I'll listen to it, again.

    Good one...I'm listening to this now just to get what you're saying.
    :)

    Oh...not good driving music, IMO.
    YMMV.

    Fans of Dave Holland's Quintet-
    Check out Chris Potter Underground.


    Chris Potter on sax, Nate Smith on drums.
    Sorry, no bassist.

    I've seen the entire hour-long set on YouTube. It's great.

    It's a good one. Essential Miles IMO.

    Most of the jazz I listen to is Miles, I couldn't play brass to save my life but there's something so soothing about the sound of his trumpet. He was truly a genius when it comes to music.

    Btw, today would've been his 92nd bday (also my son's 2nd bday today too)

    Essential Miles albums (IMO):
    Jazz in Paris
    Jack Johnson
    Bitches Brew
    Sketches of Spain
    The Man with the Horn
    Kind of Blue
    At Carnegie Hall
    We Want Miles (first album of his to feature Jean Pierre, the catchiest jazz song ever)

    I am a huge Miles' fan, too...I have bought maybe 100 of his albums.
    Anything with the 1st & 2nd "Great" Quintets are must-haves.
    Miles Davis Quintet - Wikipedia

    I'll add the 3rd "Great"/Lost Quintet, too!

    Funny...I do not have Man With The Horn. Why is that one essential?

    It's great stuff. First album after he came out of retirement, Marcus Miller on bass too, a couple songs he's tuned super low. It sounds great!
