  2. Oddly I am in the same mood but have some different choices.
    Started out with Brubeck's 'Time Out'. Stanley Clarke Trio 'Jazz in the Garden' Miles Davis 'Kind of Blue' Monk Quartet with Coltrane 'at Carnegie Hall'.
    I may pick a few things off your list as well.

    Nice!! Every day is jazz day in our house...I'm pretty sure I've earned some sort of honorary jazz degree just living with my husband and learning along with what he teaches our daughter at the table each day....Love it!! I can follow form a lot better than I used to.

    To celebrate...I tuned in to the Carmen McRae station on Pandora and also got Billie, Sarah, Nancy and Ella. Sweet!!

    Colcifier-enjoyed the blog and post about Levon. My father-in-law had him in class at Berklee one summer many many years ago...he and the guys stopped through for some ear training I guess. He really enjoyed having him in his class.
    Thanks for posting!

    Thanks for reading! Helm's death is quite saddening; not only was he so great a musician but by all accounts, one helluva guy!
  8. Decided to spend the rest of the afternoon with Rahsaan Roland Kirk.

    Monk & Rahsaan are big influences on my playing along with Cannonball, maybe strange but there you are.

    And what a thing to celebrate!

    Might be a bit of a waste of time, given time zone differences, but here is a show I host with my brother and a mate where they bring in hip hop and I bring in jazz. The time it plays probably translates to some god-forsaken hour for you lot, but even if you just want to read the playlists, it gives you a good idea as to what jazz I like to listen to
