    Last weekend I picked up a $2 minty copy of Little Feat's double album "Waiting For Columbus" from 1978. Hadn't heard "Don't Bogart That Joint" in many a moon.

    Also for a buck I scored Cat Steven's "Catch Bull At Four". Back in the day a local hifi store used to play this album to show off their EPI-100's.

    I heard Candy many times on Wed nites at the Cafe Alto, my all-time favorite jazz club. I'm a party type of guy, and I never stayed until the Cafe closed (latest time I left was about 4'30 AM). When I asked the bartender when they were closing, she replied: "when the last customer leaves"! They sure know how to party in good old Amsterdam!

    That's him. The album features Anita O'Day and Roy Eldridge. There was a nice little batch of records there, that day. Someone with tastes similar to mine must have come in and sold some records right about that time.

    That's "Zoot" Sims. I took a shot in the dark on that one. I saw the sax and decided I wanted it. I'll let you know how it sounds.

    Wow, real nice. If you like that Jamal LP then you must check out The Awakening. Zoot Sims can blow as good as any of em.

    Zoot turned out to be fantastic. A real toe-tapper. It was enough to make me stop and just listen without distractions. I love the energy of it. It's not like it's technical perfection or anything. It's like the guy in The Big Chill said, though, "Sometimes you have to just let art flow over you."
