stevign,

i didn't know i was acting that defiant. the first time i heard carter doing "stange fruit", i almost ran from the room. but i then realized that his version is the most powerful i ever will hear. sometimes i actually listen to more gentle music like "camaleao" by grover washington, "a single petal of a rose" by joe temperley, theme from "the mission" by Morricone and the french horn version of "lullaby" from mangione's children of sanchez.

your earlier post said "guano?" it's bat droppings, but i honestly think you know that and were searching for Bat. but, on the surface, i could not let it go by. hench

Mr. Porter,

I didn't like Carter's version the first 2 times I heard it, but on the 3rd try it all fell into place. Afterall, it was a very violent act and his inclusion of said drama is quite powerfull.

re: "your earlier post said "guano?"

I thought Prof. Jim, (alias Guano) was using the name "Steveg" to mess with me. If he didn't, some new guy named "Steveg" is out there wondering why the heck I put bat-droppings on his post.

Sure, Mt. Vernon is great, "fine dining" is defined as "not having to take your tray back", afterwards we can can go cow-tipping in the rain.

I just found "Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime" sung by Michael Wolff - sweet.

Someone mentioned Mangione. I am gonna review his career now...bye

jay,,

i quietly mentioned mangione 'cause a lot of his stuff was almost more pop than jazz. he had a good ear for a beautiful melody, but fleshed it out in a pop vein. the "children of sanchez" was, i think, the best writing he ever did and "lullaby" was a gorgeous interlude from the more aggressive sound of most of the album.

stevign,

as a wee child we used to play cow pattie football. your team lost 3 points every time a receiver stepped in one on a pass pattern. we didn't try to tip as the angus, hereford and charlious (?) were too sturdy. my wife and i go to a drive by restaurant for our anniversaries, so eating inside would be a treat.

to keep the thread honest, i would add "Grace" by quincy and phil woods to the list of moving ballads. i'm surprised you haven't added "king of the road" as a moving ballad.

just about anything mentioned in this discussion, though i will second stardust by nat king cole, which would had been my first, and not just by nat king cole but also louis armstrong and john coltrane's stardust, and john coltrane's violets for your furs.

If You Could See Me Now, especially the version on Chet Baker's recording The Best Thing For You.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 7, 2008 8:26:19 PM PDT
I'm a wee bit surprised that no mention has been made of Lush Life, Billy Strayhorn's ode to late night living.

I also missed seeing "Goodbye Porkpie Hat" Mingus' tribute to Pres.

And, then there is Mingus' "Duke Ellington's Sound Of Love."

I agree whole heartedly with many of the other recommendations. And, there are a few I plan to check out!
