    It's been a while since I've listened to Red Garland. This is a very enjoyable album with a good mix of uptempo pieces and ballads with Sam Jones on bass and Charlie Persip on drums. I discovered a side of Red Garland that I hadn't heard before as seen in his renditions of "On Green Dolphin Street" , "Blues in the Closet" and "So Sorry Please" showing the influence of Bud Powell.

    On Record Store Day I was at a shop I had only been to once before. In the new arrivals section they had a Red Garland Quartet/Quintet 10” first pressing. I brought it up to the owner and he looked it up. Crazy money, even when he offered a sizable discount for bring it to his attention. Had to pass but it sure had my interest.

    Thought so. I rented a few and recognized that dash. I drive a German import, and although I absolutely LOVE the Bose sound system in my car, I'm done with high end automobiles. You need to take out a 2nd mortgage to service them. My Father (RIP) loved Buick. My next car would have been a Ford Fusion, but I'm not buying until 2020 and Ford won't be making any more sedans in the future. Honestly, I wish they still had the Mercury Cougar. The old style from circa 1990 ish. Basically a 2 door Mercury Grand Marquis. I loved that car.

    Previous to this was a Lincoln, previous to that another Buick. Next one smells like a Cadillac, but probably a couple/few more years on this one, yet. I drove a Chrysler 300C rental all day yesterday (service work on mine) and was not very impressed with the “premium” Alpine sound system.

    SWMBO has a Caddy and she really likes it. She wanted a Benz but test drove the Caddy and fell in love. I've been an Audi man since 1998, but that run is finally ending. Outrageously expensive to keep an Audi on the road, especially once you have past the warranty period. I may consider Lincoln. Glad you posted that. I keep forgetting about that brand. Never owned one. I've actually been super impressed with renting the Kia Optima. What an amazing car especially for the price, and with a 10 year 100k warranty. They are designed by Audi engineers. That's probably why I like them. Every Kia Optima owner I talk to loves the car, and has had ZERO issues, some with ownership around the 8 year mark and that's as long as I will ever own a car. But I will probably really look at Lincoln now that you have me thinking about that upscale Ford brand. Thanks.

    I really like the new Continental. Have you thought about a Lexus ? I love the LS460 and new LS500.

    I also forgot to mention it's a great reference album for checking out systems. But I guess that's to be expected coming from Chesky.

    I just read that the Continental will have a "Short" run and go back OUT of production soon. But I also like the MKZ/MKX just from the research I did tonight. If the Continental goes out, that may be a good time to buy actually as they close them out probably in 2020.

    I was super disappointed with the Toyota cars I have rented, so I kind of poo-pooed the brand in my mind. I realize that's not fair because a Lexus is a totally different animal than a Toyota.
    I will take a look at the Lexus lineup tomorrow. Thanks for the tip.

    Easy answer, it's both. A few weeks ago I posted a Bessie Smith compilation that was all blues and more than a little jazz as well, especially considering that Louis Armstrong appears on several sides in that set. During the early years it's mostly pointless to say it's one or the other since everything is so close to the source of that branch of American music.

    Great tune you picked out, and I like the new avatar as well.
