Eric Dolphy - Out To Lunch! (1964)

In the days before I listened to lots of jazz, I listened to lots of Frank Zappa. Like everyone else I had a copy of Kind Of Blue but had no real idea of what I was listening to. 1,127 more words

Rahsaan Roland Kirk - Prepare Thyself To Deal With A Miracle (1973)

Many Of Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s albums may well resemble a crazed carnival ride, but inspired artistry is ever-present. As a soloist on sax, clarinet, flute, manzello (a customised soprano sax actually called a saxello), or stritch (an alto sax with a French-horn bell) he could play with explosive outrageousness or with incredible poise and grace. 619 more words

One of my favorite all time tunes

Begin the Beguine is easily one of my favorite songs. Because of its rather byzantine form, it’s not really a great improvisational vehicle but as a complete song with words AND music by Cole Porter, it doesn’t get much more profound. 6 more words
