How are you going to eat lunch now, Irwin?

You should be asking that question of the Old Codger.

Irwin, is Dualplover still in business?
Avatar    Wed. 5/31/17 3:39pm Irwin:

Dunno. Recent record fair score.
Avatar    Wed. 5/31/17 3:40pm Irwin:

You can always recognize the grunts of Erroll Garner.
  Wed. 5/31/17 3:42pm MONEYBAG$:

the other day I was actually trying to remember who it was who grunts during jazz tunes, thank you
Avatar    Wed. 5/31/17 3:43pm The Oscar:

I remember hearing that on my dad's jazz albums as a kid, and I thought it was the weirdest thing I'd ever heard.
  Wed. 5/31/17 3:43pm Dean:

Make a nice theme for a compilation of pianists who tickle the ivories, grunting. There's a bunch of 'em.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/31/17 3:44pm Michael 98145:

shades of Sharapova
  Wed. 5/31/17 3:44pm MONEYBAG$:

I hear it a lot on the local jazz station because they only have about 12 CDs, mostly Ken Burns collections
  Wed. 5/31/17 3:45pm Stan:

And Garner was self taught--grunts and all. Grew up listening to particularly Concert by the Sea...
Avatar    Wed. 5/31/17 3:47pm Wild Neil:

I heard on Catholic Radio that 3am is Satan's hour. Kinda funny hearing this tune which sounds like anything but....

Marvin "Smitty" Smith with Branford?
Avatar    Wed. 5/31/17 3:53pm Irwin:

These drums are killer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/31/17 3:53pm Ken From Hyde Park:

That one from YouTube reminds me of visits to Storybookland amusement park in Aberdeen, SD.
Avatar    Wed. 5/31/17 3:54pm Irwin:

Justin Faulkner on the kit.
  Wed. 5/31/17 3:54pm Dean:

On a good day, Branford and his group are stellar. I'm especially fond of the live record from Bloomington.

A young gun, I see. This one grew on me within a few minutes.

Joe's vignettes are often quite sensory.
Avatar    Wed. 5/31/17 4:21pm Irwin:

wiki: "Another contributor to Kaempfert's music was guitarist/bassist Ladislav "Ladi" Geisler, who popularized the famous "knackbass" (crackling bass) sound, using the Fender Telecaster Bass Guitar, which became the most distinctive feature of many Kaempfert recordings — a treble staccato bass guitar sound in which the bass string was plucked with a pick and immediately suppressed to cancel out any sustain. It was Geisler who lent his guitar amplifier to The Beatles for their recording session with Tony Sheridan, after the band's own equipment proved to be inadequate for recording purposes."

Blue Sands sounds like a Moondog composition to me, for some reason

Also a bit like Les Baxter

IMO, Big Bro weren't very good musicians but they had heart to spare. Kosmic didn't necessarily play the shit out of the thing, but they had the chops. For me, much like choosing between apple and pumpkins pies on Thanksgiving, I'll take some of both.
