  1. I grew up with classical music. Both parents professional musicians. In my early twenties I took my first saxophone lessons. My teacher was a Charlie Parker fan. Every saturday I went to the music library and copied every LP of Parker I could find on cassette. 52 LP's. Even some Bean Denebetti recordings. I stll have that collection. The sound quality is bad but I cherish it. I have a classic taste for jazz. bebop, hardbop, west coast. I tried Ornette Coleman and such but always go back to my old heroes. About Dean Benedetti : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dean_Benedetti
  2. Great album ! Sun Ra is a band you should hear live. I saw the band twice. Somewhere in the late 80ties at the NSJF when the festival was still at the Hague and again in 2014 when the festival was in my home town. Found a nice video from the Hague 1979 :
  3. Long ago when Stan Getz used to play Bebop ❤️ Watch the expression on Gary Burton's face at 1.42
  4. CD still available at the Dutch Jazz Archive Hank Mobley, the most underrated hardbop jazz musician

  7. Jutta Hipp, I heard her for the first time in in a set of a DJ in SL I looked her up in You Tube and found a lot. Downloaded a lot of tracks and even bought some Japanese import CD's She played together with Zoot Sims. They made some albums together. I found her style special. She had a kind of sad life A special story is when she lives alone in New York at old age, forgotten as a jazz musician. She receives a letter from Blue Note. There were still forgotten royalties of her Blue Note recordings. Blue Note payed her more than 30.000 USD....a bit late, but better late than never... Jutta died in 2003 Wiki : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jutta_Hipp
  8. This is such a heartbreaker. Mr Peterson playing with one hand due to a stroke and still swinging. NHOP still at his best here.
  9. Thelonious Monk's Rhythm a Ning performed by the Eric Ineke JazzXpress and guests live at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam during Eric Ineke's 70th birthday concert on April 1st 2017. The tune was the encore of the concert.
