Picked up this mono New York pressing last week. It's one of those "transitional" Liberty pressings—everything looks original, except there's no deep groove or "P" in the dead wax. Sounds great! It's interesting...there are definitely aspects of an avant-garde vibe here, but also the familiar feeling of classic, straight-ahead hard Bop. The sense that Jazz is on the cusp of big changes is palpable...

Tal Farlow!! Another giant of a guitarist. Almost literally. He was a man of large stature. His hands were huge and he could get some really big stretches for wide intervals. But a gentle giant he was. Great player, great man.
Man, what a lineup on that!!
This guy I am not familiar with. But I will be thanks to you!!
Nothing wrong with that!

So I already had Sunday and Waltz for Debby, but I just had to break down and get Bill Evans' Complete Village Vanguard Recordings, 1961 (photo from Discogs). I'm tempted to move my system to the basement, set up some tables and chairs, maybe a few red curtains, grab a drink and put this on.
You should. And invite a bunch of chicks in tight skirts that chain smoke. B-)

Great idea. Although after my college days there've been far fewer chances to meet interestingly-attired, chain-smoking, Bill-Evans-listening, Sylvia-Plath-quoting, brilliant, sarcastic women. Ah well. At least I know a couple David Foster Wallace obsessed metalheads.
