Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Sunday Music Blogging - 2/14

Jerome Richardson's GROOVE MERCHANT is little more than a riff tune.  Thad Jones' fabulous arrangement makes it something special.  Thad was brutal to his reed players, and liked to write thick line sax solis with soprano lead, and this is a terrific example.  The shout chorus at around the seven minute mark displays his sophisticated ensemble writing.

Best of all these guys are having FUN!  This is 9 minutes very well spent.
