    Well, here's the Esbjorn Svensson piece I was raving about. One word of advice, though, give it till about 2 minutes in when Esbjorn comes back hard on the piano and it really starts to take off and develop. If you turn it off because of the dissonant opening sound on the bass {bowing technique} you'll really be missing out on a masterpiece, IMHO, of course: Esbjörn Svensson Trio РThe Face Of Love. I think as the piece goes on--if you're anything like me--you'll crank up the old volume and start drumming along. I do hope you all enjoy it!
    Whatever floats your boat May your reach always exceed your grasp

    Hi Gord,
    I have just become a fan of Lee morgan after listening to (bought) his Cd "the Ultimate Collecton".
    I must look for the "Gigola" Cd which I ran from Youtube just to show his ability.
    I think I've been missing something here.
    Cheers John

    I found watching the vibraphone technique totally fascinating.

    JHC posted a beautiful video of Eric Satie's Gymnopedie -1 on the classical site. Here is a solo piano version of 'It Never Entered My Mind' by George Shearing where he includes Gymnopedie into his variations.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUj5_...yer_detailpage

    Lester Young's classic solo on Lady Be Good in 1939 with a Count Basie small group knocked me out when I was fifteen, now 500 years later I still get that tingle down my aged spine when I hear it. It was often repeated by others as a tribute to Lester. Lee Konitz said that when he first heard it he realised straight off that jazz had become a new culture.
    Here is the Pres solo first, then it is followed by a note for note tribute by Engelbert Wrobel's Swing Society with tenorist/clarinetist/ soprano/ stalwart Anti Sarpilla leading the front line. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeqwP...yer_detailpage

    Hi Stu,
    you've certainly got similar tastes in Jazz to myself.
    Try this - I've only found these artists quite recently - Warren Vache, Harry Allen, John Allred are current players but I reckon they compare very well with past masters of their respective instruments.
