Brilliant blowing from Wayne

Foot tappin’
Head noddin’

Lovely

I will select early this week.

More Blue Note? ECM?

I have a gem I got recently I may surprise you with.

To be revealed in due course.






Go for the surprising gem!


It is a live recording. I will have to check length and availability on line.

Thanks.

I usually fire up the stereo on time with my phone using spotify.

Then comes the arduous task of making my first post of the evening on BCB using my laptop or tablet.

Not sure why, but each time I post I have to review 'new posts made recently, you may want to review your post in light of this'. Other sites have cried out for a function to disable this useless facility.

To no avail.


Where’s the Jethro lad when you need him?

Does anybody know how is doing etc?

Facebook?




.


To be clear, it is a feature of all message boards of this type.

I don't think Jethro could do anything.


Fair point - it was a flippant point really, I was more concerned about Paul’s whereabouts and well being

Any ‘sightings’….?

Jazz generally does have a tune but they don’t necessarily play it to you.

Gnomic.


Something to do with gnomes

We have three around our tiny pond

I built the pond when the boys were tiny to attract the frogs - which it did

Trouble is they weren’t as interested as their dad and then a few years later they buggered off on mass

We still see the occasional one or two but no regular frog spawn




.







Very pleased to see newts in my neighbour's pond this year - I renovated it two years ago and there are also well developed dragonfly larvae. No gnomes required.

I love live recording providing the recording is of very good quality and the audience aren’t too loud and noisy!

Availability on line can still be an issue. Scuppered some of my jazz/PSL picks.

None.

I am a stranger to Facebook. I cannot fathom how to navigate it.

I need a child of ten to show me.

I wonder if Shorter and Hancock realised what a magnificent, influential sound they had together?

My guess is 'Not to the full extent'

I was thinking, do you think we should keep the JSL acoustic?

Electric c starts into the jazz rock/ fusion category as far as I am generally concerned and can feature in the PSLs

Weather Report, Nucleus, Brand X, Bruford et alia

What do you think?

Spot on

The chemistry is phenomenal

The whole band actually - particularly the rhythm section

Think we tend to gravitate that way anyway, so I wouldn't make it a formal rule.

Go with a broad church.

Hate to disqualify a sixties album for having an electric bass or keyboard on one or two tracks. Or all of them.

Imagine most great artists don't realise the full extent of their impact.

Another fair point well made

I have no hard line on it

Just put it out there

Thanks both
