Hey Bob! Miss Saturday morning in J.C. I'm out of range now a days, but still locked in tight 9-11.

Your soundtrack gives us sustenance.
We need you now more than ever!

That Rusape Jews of Zimbabwe track was cool.

Donald Byrd did some fine stuff (before he went fusion...I know that statement can generate some heat).

Good morning, all,
Turned the alarm off at 8:30 and just got up. Never a good thing to miss a big chunk of Bob's2 hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/21/17 9:29am Philthy woman:

Byrd gets me ready to FLYYYY!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/21/17 9:30am Philthy woman:

always loved that one, what a line up and what an energy
  Sat. 1/21/17 9:42am Mark R:

Dr. Jazz, Byrd returned to real jazz again in the 90s, put out some nice albums--"A City Called Heaven," "Getting Down to Business," and "Harlem Blues" are all good. He's got very good bands on those records, too. (My apologies if you're already familiar with this stuff.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/21/17 9:48am doctorjazz:

Mark R, no need to apologize, I do know that he "returned to the fold", so to speak. I don't actually have a problem with fusion, Miles, for instance, had a great version of it. Some versions of fusion maintained the energy and didn't dumb it down. Some did. Some made up for it with a soulfulness or other strengths. Just ornery, in the mood to pick a fight, I guess, don't take it too seriously (stuck at work as well...)

wow, cool history to the Rusape Jews. They were "discovered" by an ex-Slave from the USA, William S. Crowdy, who settled in Newark: en.wikipedia.org... en.wikipedia.org... Today I learned
  Sat. 1/21/17 9:51am Mark R:

I just didn't want to be pedantic. I agree with you about Byrd's fusion period vs. Miles. Love early Weather Report, hate "Birdland." Etc. I'm sure we're pretty much on the same page. The original Mahavishnu Orchestra was a cold-blooded motherfucker of a band, maybe instrumentally the most talented band ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/21/17 9:55am doctorjazz:

I'm with you, Mahavishnu was intense, early Weather Report was quite exploratory.
Great Dizzy (who was a "fusion" artist of the first class!)

Sun Ra never ceases to surprise me.

...nice work Bob Brainen!...
  Sat. 1/21/17 10:00am WilliamfromDumont:

Bob, you made me dig out my copy of L&C Exp. I want to like this album, but it's short on good tunes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/21/17 10:04am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

1967 Half Century observations should really make vivd how - though '66 is widely exalted as TheeYear - '67's full technicolor blooming of Rawk was simply singularly awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/21/17 10:33am doctorjazz:

Loving the NRBQ box, great stuff.
  Sat. 1/21/17 10:53am WilliamfromDumont:

My fave Pentangle LP. Yes! Good to hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/21/17 10:53am doctorjazz:

Aw. I missed that great Red Allen track, great Pentangle, though.
