Bill I did not know who Dudley Moore was. You Tube showed me how good a pianist he was
I just picked up this near mint 1972 United Artists pressing today (and at a great price!)
I like really Jutta's playing here, though I wonder if earlier pressings would have brought her out more in the mix? Considering what those go for nowadays, though, I'll never know...

Well damn. Before the end of side 1 I noticed that the music was sounding lifeless. Started out good. Went to my #1 system and all is well. I hope the evg stylus on my m93 just has a glob of junk on it. Not gonna mess with it tonight.

Fats Navarro featured with the Tadd Dameron Band
Some of the greatest listening experiences I had were when I went to see Illinois Jacquet. I saw him many times with his quartet, and then later with his big band. Even met him a couple of times. What was so thrilling about watching Jacquet, is that you were watching one of the great tenors who was in that very select club of players with guys like Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, Don Byas, and Lester Young. Jacquet was a HEAVY HITTER. He was one of the guys who put the tenor on the map. And what was wild, is that he was born later than the other guys, so if you saw him in the late 1970's, he was only 56 and in his PRIME. He was something else...
This clip is so funny...
Kenny Barron - Canta Brasil
I'm a little slow. Dudley Moore the pianist is Dudley Moore the actor/comedian.
Ha ha, give that man a cigar!
Jack Lemmon was another guy who played the piano.
Hank Crawford - Midnight Ramble
Bought this tonight on vinyl. But it's warped. Gonna return it tomorrow. Looks like I will make do with Spotify.
Just came back from a live performance with Christian Tamburr playing vibes. Unfortunately he was directing a band featuring Clint Holmes, the "King of Schmaltz". One has to ask why he gave up this great quartet:
to be musical director for a guy like Clint? I guess Vegas ($$$) truly does change people.
Anyways, home now listening to the quartet stuff.
Don't you hate that? But this has a good side, you get to go look for more music
Yes I do. Seems way to common these days, but that's a whole other discussion.
But yes you are correct. The vinyl jazz is slim aside from this and who ever ordered every Nina Simone album on the planet. Literally. Half the jazz records where Nina Simone. Very frustrating. But I will find something else. I always do. On a good note the limited edition Lightning Hopkins album was perfect.
Late nite Jazz radio, listening to it over the air.
