OOPS I Forgot again!
OOPS I Forgot again!
Sorry stu but I cnnot play your track
I've seen this before when th track prints as white and not yellow.
Think I fixed it. Try now, John.
When posting a link from youtube, one must remember that it should be preceded by the space character.
Sorry guys for that Warne Marsh blunder! And thanks Mat for the advice.
Hi Mat,Thanks for the technical expertise but not for allowing me to hear the track.
Sorry Stu - I just didn't like it- 3/10
7/10 for Mat. The harmonica was fine. Toots Thielemens is probably the only harmonica player I can appreciate in jazz. (Blues yes, but jazz hmmm!) However in this jazz context I prefer just the Bill Evans Trio.
9/10 for John, some fine Coltrane - in a hurry!
Here's another tenor - in a hurry!
I'm going to make a confession here.
When I first heard your offering stu, I thought, this Johnny Griffin sounds a bit like Ben Webster,
and then suddenly he turned into a mixture of Bird and Trane, and I turned it off.
And then I realised: I would have preferred it to remain Ben Webster, or Lester Young, or Coleman
Hawkins, or Don Byas, or Danny Moss, or Bob Cooper, or Buddy Tate, or Jim Tomlinson, or well- - -,
I guess you've got the point.
What it comes down to is that I'm just too old to change (79 in March), and although I've been
making an effort to understand bop and hardbop, its just became too much - I'm going back to
concentrate on the jazz I love. I give your offering 7/10 in my trial mode and about 3/10 in my resumed mode.
The following track is the essence, perhaps, of my return to normality.

I am almost wetting myself with excitement at the wonderfull music here. I had almost forgotten how good it could be.
Hi teddy, Great that your computer must now be OK and to to have you back.
Dont wet yourself but Do give a rating please
Coleman Hawkins Body And Soul. One of the greatest versions by one of the greatest tenors! He virtually made that tune his very own!! 10/10
I love Stan Getz 10/10
As jazz 3/10, as a song by Tex Ritter 8/10
