The wonderfully diverse blog Birds With Broken Wings brought a smile to the face of this cold, displaced blogger this morning. Nancy and I are still reeling after the massive October snowstorm killed power, heat, Hallowe'en and cheer last week. None of the above have been restored as of yet, with no sign of recovery on the horizon.
But Gool ol" Miles at Birds has posted a
delightful collection of music titled
"Three Steaming Cups of Joe: The Tones of Joe Henderson
1937-2001)". Ever the clever indexer, he has given us one set
called "Hard Bop Roast" featuring tunes like "Inner Urge" and "Mode
for Joe"; "Exploratory Roast" featuring more adventurous outings
like "Black Narcissus" and "Bwaata"; and "Supreme Roast" giving us
"Fire", "Afro-Centric", and "Mind Over Matter". A discogrpahy
indicating source material is included for further exploration. Get
it soon, and get caffinated the Henderson way today!
