    It worked! Of course this is not my latest non classical purchase, I was just trying to see if I could post a picture. It's easier than I thought!

    You're welcome.

    I have a poster of that image of Bach, which I bought from the Bachhaus in Eisenach.

    Well this isn't a poster I would like hanging on my wall, but it would certainly look good in a collage I'm making, which consists of many small pictures and images that have something to do with music, from composer portraits to pages of a score or photos of performing bands. I wanna make a big size poster to decorate one of the walls of the music school where I teach.

    That's about it on the off-topic picture. And now back on the subject at hand: my latest non classical purchase is

    Margaret,
    Could you tell me where you found an orchestral version of Poljushko Polje. I would love to download it.

    My latest non-classical purchase is Focus 8.



    Yes, this is the band that did the insane yodeling song Hocus Pocus in the 70's. They also did some fine thoughtful progressive rock. They have been reformed with original member Thijs van Leer and an excellent tribute band. They are still in good form with that marvelous original analog Hammond organ sound and flute. Van Leer still acts the occasional nutcase to satisfy old fans.

    Fantastic post-bop/modern album. And yes, MI it does have swing. Pat Metheny plays at his optimum and Brecker is just phenomenal - recorded just a few months before he died.

    I've owned that recording since it came out, but I only bought it for historical purposes, certainly not for the music. I wasn't a fan of Brecker's saxophone playing. It's got a great lineup though either Brad Mehldau or Herbie Hancock on piano. I'm a pretty big Mehldau fan. I've got a Charles Lloyd recording called "The Water Is Wide" and this is some of the best playing I've heard from Mehldau since the release of his first couple of solo albums.

    Bach, you must checkout these recordings:

    oh heck, I love Mehldau - the only disk of his that I own is 'Day Is Done' but I've heard more. I must check out those recommendations - definitely!

    Yes, you should check these out. It's straight-ahead modern bebop jazz piano trio a la Bill Evans, Sonny Clark, Hampton Hawes, Barry Harris, etc. You'll dig it a lot more than the "Day Is Done" recording. I hardly ever listen to that album.

    I just got 'Intruducing...' and I'm loving what he does with the Ellington tune 'Prelude to a Kiss' - an old favourite done in a refreshing way. Loving this album, cheers for the rec!

    Yes, that's a great version of "Prelude to a Kiss." I love jazz standards, especially when they're played in creative way.

    Exactly. To me, this is at the centre of jazz.

    I'm currently transcribing the slow movement from Rach Symphony 2 into lead-sheet format. Ready to be played by a jazz trio/quartet. Shame I don't have one, really..

    You don't play bass by any chance do you?

    No, I wish I played bass. I'd love to learn those walking bass lines, which are so important in establishing the swing feel of bebop.
