Play List Update and New Music
Featured are a few new CDs I've recently been given. Of note are Coltrane's "My Favorite Things", Hank Mobley's "Straight, No Filter", and Kenny Burrell's "Midnight Blue."
"Straight, No Filter" is a collection of initially unreleased tracks from Mobley's 60s Blue Note sessions. It really cooks, and it's a fantastic addition to my already large collection of Hank's work.
Kenny Burrell serves up some some great "late-night" bluesy jazz guitar on this essential Blue Note disc. For someone starting a jazz collection, this is an album to buy, along with any of Grant Green's Blue Note work, such as "First Session" or "Idle Moments".
Take some time to enjoy great music this year, whether it's jazz, blues, indie rock, etc. Enjoy life with music that matters.
As Karin Bergquist from Over the Rhine sings in her smoky, sultry, voice, "I don't want to waste your time with music you don't need."
