Pick of the Week (10/31/05)

Oliver Nelson -- Blues and the Abstract Truth (Impulse) 1961

Nothing Halloween for the week, unless you'd accept some bad pun about how scary good this one is. It's the best jazz album I've heard in a very long time, varied between pieces but wholly consisten, and containing the kind of playing by Dolphy that makes you wish there was more flute in all genres.

On Sept. 15, through a private Web site called, Ruby pleaded for help.
Just like so many Americans my friend loves the clubs and pop r & b lyrics so he went ahead and built an awesome website about pop r & b lyrics. When he's in high spirit he goes to the site and start reciting all his favorite pop r & b lyrics. Says it's good for the heart. Guess what? I gave it a shot and it works great!
