The 12 year old in me will always miss these ancient relics.
I love this photo by Malick Sidibé. A Malian man holding up a Jimmy Smith Blue Note record. I can relate to this picture on multiple levels.
The Jack Shainman Gallery in NYC will present a Malick Sidibé exhibition starting tomorrow with a reception from 6-8pm. More info here.
Blue Mitchell - The Thing To Do
It features a young Chick Corea in a period I refer to as his “BS” period. BS stands for ‘Before Scientology’.
Dr. Lonnie Smith doing his thing at the Blue Note Records 75th Anniversary show.
Tony Williams - Spring (w/ Wayne Shorter, Sam Rivers, Herbie Hancock and Gary Peacock)
FLAC rip of Straight No Filter by Hank Mobley.
Mobley and Lee Morgan on the title track going back and forth is incredible. Shit man, I wish was alive to witness this.
Some Reid Miles album artwork and Francis Wolff photos from various Blue Note photo books.
Looking through these again, and I’m so blown away by the photography of Francis Wolff.
Stanley Turrentine - Look Out!
Speaking of Horace Parlan, he does his thing on this Stanley Turrentine record. A thing of beauty.
Just got stack of Blue Note and Impulse records in the mail.
Grant Green - Talkin’ About!
With Elvin Jones and Larry Young.
The good stuff from the fine folks at Music Matters.
