NOOOOO not Marsalis! I speak of Sir Wynton Kelly. I cannot get enough of this record! I picked it up a few week’s at AUDIOPILE on Commercial Drive a few weeks back and its a freaking DOOZY!!! If you read my blog regularly you know I’ve been into the piano trio format of late and this is one of the best! It’s the classic trio of Kelly, Paul Chambers or Sam Jones on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums. COME RAIN OR COME SHINE is the 1st tune on Side A and it is just ripping and the other highlight is on side 2 with Kelly’s JOE’S AVENUE which is actually SCOTCH & WATER as played by Cannonball Adderly. If Gavin Walker reads this particular post I’m sure he’ll tell me which tune name came first! A fantastic album.
I have been posting a bunch of my pictures here on this blog and I’m slowly starting to get the hang of my SLR….it’s slow but I’m getting it. Here are a few pics that I took that are non jazz related that are kind of cool.
