    You're an all-star calibre poster with an astonishing versatility running across all genres and for that you have my genuine admiration but some really-first rate music may be inadvertently overlooked through a lack of the judicious use of graphics to draw attention to your posts. People have a tendency to scroll through threads quite quickly and graphics can help give them a visual cue as to the contents of the post.

    It's just intended as friendly advice and it's certainly your call to make but there are so many incredible jazz photos/album covers that you could bring to the attention of the forum - look at Starthrower's use of graphics in his posts as an example of just how effective the utilization of graphics can be.

    But it's your call - perhaps you're a minimalist at heart - which is cool - but as mentioned previously your posts are really first-rate and it would be a shame for them to be overlooked.

    Just as an example this is a really attractive album cover that would have helped to highlight your Sun Ra selection -

    The life affirming music and joy that is exuded from this ensemble never fails to inspire me. And this record in particular is a great example.

    Thank you for your kind comments which I very much appreciate. My first visual link was posted today on Melody of the Day so I will try to extend that now to other threads. Ironically, this comes at the time when I have probably exhausted the more unusual material much of which surprised/delighted me when I first viewed/heard it although in some ways that might well be a good reason to do it. Let's see how it goes.

    Good, but not too unusual. Maybe too much octane because it's still morning over here. I'll have to try it again later in the day.

    Strata-East's live recordings of his quartet (re-released on Mosaic Select) are my favorites, especially Live in Tokyo. Beautiful trumpet tone, exciting ensemble, and good compositions. I have the previous big band album (With Love) but have not heard it many times.
