Over the holidays I have resolved to stop the incessant hunt for vinyl for a few days and concentrate instead on playing more of what I already have. I pulled out a handful of jazz albums this morning which I also intend to copy onto CD for mum. I've featured a track off this budget label Marble Arch album before. Until now the track here had passed me by, but it's on repeat right now. "Flame And Frost" is a great title, not least because I think it perfectly describes the feel of this track. I close my eyes and imagine the driving rhythmic nature of the music as a perfect soundtrack to the masses rushing (or possibly shuffling) about doing their last minute Christmas shopping - including Mrs Darce. And as I keep my eyes closed I relax and let the effortless cool of the music wash over me. Sshhh! Don't tell Mrs Darce. Sonny Stitt & Benny Green - Flame And Frost 1965
Mostly vinyl, mostly a private pleasure - until now.
Music posted here I have bought and gained much pleasure from listening to down the years (or months, or days!). So in the spirit of an 'all back to mine' it's time to share it.
