paul desmond
- summertime (1968)
....................

....................

easy was my way into jazz. they're very closely related in many ways, though hardcore modern jazz lovers would surely scorn a lot of what we listen to. fortunate for me i don't have to miss out on either. one of the jazz labels i quickly became a fan of was cti - thanks to rudy van gelder and creed taylor, a whole string of luscious latin jazz releases found their way into my collection. the late and early seventies were a golden era for cti, and included antonio carlos jobim releases, and a host of jazz albums with hubert laws, ron carter, wes montgomery and deodata (amongst others.) They all played on each other's albums. i imagine creed's ultra stylish modern home in the hills of california with the studio downstairs, every one just hanging out and then paul says "say, let's make my record."
this lp is for me much more easy than it is jazz, and i love the smooth laid back sunday afternoon feel it has. hugo montenegro's "lady in cement" is fantastic, and this cover is so cool i have used it in several compilations. if you're looking for something to ease your mind after a vicious week at work, this guy will do the trick.

If you want to know more about it or what wine im drinking, what stock i'm betting on, or the white collar that I don, check out: Abelugalife.blogspot.com

I have you added to my blog roll along with some other fine reads who have added me to theirs. Check out my blog and lemme know if i'm, "worthy" of your blog roll.

Thanks a lot my friend,
