Blues Piano

Saturday morning. Brought out an album of LP's that I hadn't listened to for a long time. CD's are convenient to pop in and out and these days the LP's often lie neglected. I cannot be the only one who finds himself in that situation. But there are aficionados out there who have high-priced turntables and treasured LP's that are loved, cared for, and listened to with pleasure and respect. I admire them.

I'm listening to Mosaic Records' excellent remastered issue of The Complete Blue Note Recordings of Albert Ammons and Meade Lux Lewis. The boxed set (No.1367) was ordered from Mosaic Records, Santa Monica, CA, around 1984, not long after Michael Cuscuna and Charlie Lourie launched the admirable venture.

What brought this about? Simple. A friend lent me the video of Scorsese's The Blues - Piano Blues directed by Clint Eastwood. Watched it last night and thought about some of the albums by artists who appeared or were talked about in the documentary.

Currently on the turntable: Solitude, Side IV, Track 3. Sweet sound.
