Look at that charming smile, just warms my heart up. This has to be one of my favorite album covers in jazz. This is actually my first time ever listening to #BrilliantCorners and I’m on my third spin in a row! I’m especially fond of side two. The music on that side has me feeling like Monk’s face on the album cover. I was lucky enough to find a super early pressing and it sounds gorgeous. I still consider myself a jazz novice and I always had a hard time getting into people like Monk and Bill Evans. I love me some horns but the piano heavy stuff took me a while to warm up to. Ryo Fukui and the YouTube algorithms really helped me warm up to the piano sounds. And now I don’t fall asleep to Bill Evans. And Monk is really taking the cake today. I really like being able to grow with these albums and seeing myself get out of my comfort zone and really enjoying stuff that i once avoided. I’m listening to side one as i type this and Monk’s playing has me feeling like I’m walking barefoot on a cloud. Good music takes you to those type of highs. I can’t wait to take it slow and learn to savor more albums like these 😊 #JazzAlbums#riversiderecords#nowspinning#recordoftheday#vinyloftheday#jazzrecords#theloniousmonk#sonnyrollins#maxroach#erniehenry#oscarpettiford#vinylcommunity#instavinyl#33rpm#vinyligclub#vinyljunkie#vinylgram#vinylrecords#vinyladdict#vinylcollection#vinyl
Coming home to some new records is a great end to a hot and busy day at work. It’s like a mid-week dance party. Starting the night off with a great, local band that I just found out about. Not too many bands are able to make you want to move your feet AND protest. @oldflameofficial do just that. Highly recommended. On deck, the much anticipated new @tychomusic album. As usual, well-crafted and chill vibes abound. Also got a limited edition copy of one of my favorites by Hot Hot Heat. A super fun band, that sadly, is no longer around. “Future Breeds” is them at their trippy and kinetic best. #oldflameofficial#tycho#hothotheat#youngandindebt#tychoweather#futurebreeds#vinylgram
My friends, this has so far been one hell of a week; and to help us pass this hump day we have the great (stereo) jazzy/psychy/folky rock double album Streetnoise by Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger, And The Trinity from 1969. This would be second album released with Julie in the US and the third release Brian And The Trinity did with ATCO; there were a handful of other albums the group release either with different labels or in different countries. Brian Auger And The Trinity had played and recorded independently before they started working with Julie in 1967. With Julie they group had a number five hit in the UK with Dylan’s This Wheel’s On Fire. Their first album made it to number 12 when it was released in the UK; but were getting off on a tangent. Let's talk about how great of an album this is to listen to, and the pipes Julie has; good god she’s great. The musicianship of this group is pretty spectacular and the instrumental arrangements are incredible. All four sides of this album kick ass all the way through and each song does a great job getting one totally enthralled. I don’t think I could pick a favorite side as each does such a great job at captivating a feeling and each work is almost mystic in how it sets a mood. Brian with that Hammond organ is something else. Simply put, this album is brilliant and everyone should do themselves the favor of experiencing it. To add to the awesomeness of this group, they opened for Zeppelin in 1969 at the Rose Palace, Pasadena, California. Either way, let's look back and hear the streetnoise.

SLEEPY HOLLOW - SLEEPY HOLLOW 1972. This seldom seen album really sounds like a George Harrison record. I checked all the covers and inner sleeve and everything, but I did not see any confirmation that George Harrison was in the band. Nor were there explicit denials, though. Perhaps the three guys in the band were just channeling the essence of George Harrison. But that still made for a solid, harmony-rich mellow jam of a record. The kind of record one would put on to begin a day when you have no intention of putting on socks. For those who care about things, this is a promotional copy, with the hype sticker, and it is a Monarch pressing, as well. If you are ready to get mellow, mosey on out to the Cromwell Record Riot at the Red Lion Hotel this Sunday and snag this slab. Feel free to leave your socks at home. #badkittymusic#sleepyhollow#recordcollection#vinyljunkie#vinyladdict#dustyfingers#instavinyl#vinylgram#cromwellrecordriot#recordalbums#recordshow
▶ THICK AS A BRICK – Jethro Tull (1972)
Quinto álbum de estudio de la banda británica liderada por Ian Anderson.
Una obra sobresaliente de una sola canción de 43 minutos, separada en las dos caras del vinilo, que con su brillante formato de diario, salió a callar las insistentes criticas de la prensa y los medios que sostenían que su disco previo ‘Aqualung’ (su obra maestra del 71) era una obra conceptual, cuando no lo era.
Es por esto que Anderson declaró ante el público que si tanto querían un disco conceptual, él se los iba a dar: “OK, no solo haremos un álbum conceptual real, sino que vamos a convertirlo en la madre de todos los álbumes conceptuales“.
Pero no iban a producirlo de la forma que todos esperaban; ‘Thick as a Brick’ resultó ser una parodia de lo que representa esta idea de lo conceptual. Y para lograrlo, se remitieron a Monty Python, un grupo reconocido de seis humoristas que sintetizaba en clave de humor la idiosincrasia británica de los años 60 y 70. Lo que le gustaba a Anderson era cómo conseguían parodiar con humor y éxito, sin ofender al espectador.
Y así fue como confeccionaron esta legendaria portada de periódico inglés –el “St. Cleve Chronicle”– desplegable de 12 páginas, con la imagen del protagonista ficticio del disco; un chico de 8 años, Gerard Bostock, apodado “el pequeño Milton” en honor al autor del Paraíso Perdido, que había ganado recientemente un premio de poesía que luego se le fue retirado cuando se comprueba que había dejado embarazada a una chica de 14 años. El diario incluye en su interior la historia del personaje, la letra del tema completo, noticias, artículos, juegos. Un formato auténtico e innovador que resulta imprescindible para cualquier coleccionista.
Los fragmentos de la primera cara del disco pueden llegar a ser los más conocidos, por formar parte del popurrí que siguieron tocando en directo hasta el mismo siglo XXI. Pero en la segunda parte se puede hallar una cantidad de tesoros escondidos, destellos psicodélicos, detalles jazzísticos casi imperceptibles, cantos gregorianos y el excepcional final de violines que servirían para definir todo un estilo: el rock sinfónico de los 70.
Record of the day:

Completely missed this release from this band made up of some ex- members of The Chariot! I saw they formed this new band, but didn’t realize they put this album out. Do give this a listen if you’re into chaotic/post-hardcore stuff; you will love it!
