    There are a couple more parts to that rehearsal footage. Just type in Emerson Lake & Palmer rehearsal on YouTube.

    Jazz Contemporaries - Reasons in Tonality

    There isn't very much information about this one out on the internet. Seems to be quite the under-the-radar release.

    "One of the greatest Strata East albums, and one of the few albums ever by Keno Duke (and all of them are great). Duke leads a crack group of soul jazz players, featuring Clifford Jordan and George Coleman on tenor, plus Julius Watkins on French horn, and Harold Mabern on piano, who is in excellent excellent form, and who really drives the whole thing with beautiful crashing chords. Two extended tracks, both of them over 20 minutes in length"

    Well, I'm currently in the midst of listening. It isn't my first go around with it, however. It is the first record Terry played Flugelhorn, as well as the only Riverside sideman date Monk played. I am of the opinion that Monk did not play enough sideman dates. It really was a rarity, only eight of them! Not hard to collect them all. My opinion on this disc is that is is very solid, but not extraordinary. It features a very nice Monk composition in "Let's Cool One" which is heavy on the Monk and has a nice drum solo for Philly. Monk gets some nice playing time on this disc. You'd almost be fooled into thinking it was his album. Quite the laid back and light affair all around. Largely to do with the flugelhorn playing, which is just very mellow. It isn't a Brilliant Corners Part 2 with Terry and Monk or anything, and it is before my favorite Monk period, but still a nice disc to have in the collection. The rhythm section does a great job on this disc and Philly gets several chances to strut his stuff.

    I feel like I'm selling it short. It really is a nice album that I would recommend. I feel like I'd take several Monk albums over this by far though.

    Well I do hope you enjoy it. Sometimes it can be those discs that fly just below the surface in player's discographies that end up being the real gems to your ears.

    Listening to this. 200 Years. Nice folky disc.



    This to go into bed with. The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid. I wanted to hear some strings instead of piano tonight. It is 1:41 AM and I am back to school today. I have a two large essays to do this week and a big test today. I feel like I am prepared to do well. The only draw back is having to wake up in 6 hours! Goodnight Samurai and TC.
