Miles Davis is awesome.  John Coltrane is awesome.  The two together...absolutely sublime.

Love the Chet Baker album also.  Thanks for posting, Chris.

Good stuff, Chris. Thanks for sharing.

Chet Baker

Miles Davis

'So what' is one of my favorites from Miles Davis. I think with John Coltrane, this performance is just superb.

Yeah, Art is "God", whose prodigious talent became the standard by which all others strive to attain. My own father was greatly influenced by him--Nat King Cole later. (My dad was REALLY good!)

Loren, really nice! Thanks for sharing Dave with us.

Loren, that Dave Grusin piece is beautiful.  Love the melding of the piano and vibes. 

Randy, another pianist who is definitely on my short list is Art Tatum.  I could listen to him all day.

Thinking about the artists you mentioned, Randall, do you enjoy the music of Dave Grusin?  He's done a lot of work in several venues, from the soundtrack to _Heaven Can Wait_ and the theme to the television series, _St. Elsewhere_ to his own jazz stylings, such as the following lovely piece, "A Child is Born:"

Ah, the Errol Garner classic. Beautiful rendition. Garner ranks in the top 5 of my all-time favorite pianists (jazz wise). Oscar Peterson, Andre Previn, John Lewis, Dave Brubeck perhaps round out the list, although I can think of several others.

Ages ago, my Uncle Ed introduced me to the music of Henry Mancini via his album, The Blues and The Beat.  It was jazz, but with Mancini's own touch (French Horns?).  The album grew on me, and over half a century later, I haven't been able to shake it ... nor would I want to.

One of the premium cuts on that album is the classic, "Misty."  I include it here.  Please enjoy.

Randy Brecker was only about 20 years old at the time. It's hard to believe he's around 70 now! I certainly had no idea he was going to be famous, along with his brother (who I didn't meet). Mancini often featured him on improvised solos. Man, could he blow! I just occurred to me that I have no Brecker albums. Think I'll look around.
