    I believe the underlying "changes" are Cherokee. Not certain.

    You're welcome, southside. Glad you enjoyed it. That first cut is just phenomenally emotive. Such great Saturday night or Sunday morning music.

    Just going through the stuff in my collection. Thanks very much.

    Was just playing another Jaki Byard piece. You'll like this one, too. You can hear the Basie influence, and that Byard had an impact on Vince Guaraldi, IMO.

    Honestly, I'm not a big Basie fan.... he's a little too upbeat for my jazz likings. Monk is my favorite. This guy kills it tho.

    Thanks, southside. He's a great pianist. I have a few cuts from House on Hill. Your somber disposition must love this one:

    That was good. Even though this isn't quite jazz, I still think it belongs:

    This one seemed to fit a cloudy Autumn morning with snow flurries.

    Along with Byard, that's Rahsaan Roland Kirk on sax.

    Jaki Byard is similar to Grant Green, a guitarist that uses space well. Great songs.

    What an era. That gem is from 1956.

    Rivers is a legend. I like the free form nature of the piece, which we know, of course, it's not. I was digging it. Never saw that clip before. Thank you, WCO.

    Awesome, you know about this guy. Not a fan of free jazz, but the payoff (last 3 minutes) was really on fire. Notice the date; from 1979-84 I was crazy to get more jazz in my ears. The Village Voice had a definite editorial bias toward the hard-working experimentors of modern jazz; it was like they knew where the real jazz was. I went every where that paper told me and I had a great time.

    This is Arthur Blythe; the Voice really championed him. I would spend off days walking NYC listening to this tune, great, bracing autumn days:

    I like the counterpoint of the background strings against the sax. Very haunting and beautiful.
