well, on the road again, in old madrid, with that trusty solid-state usb drive.  listened to a hank mobley quintet cd and then queued up this lovely show (now playing!) by the great johnny griffin & eddie lockjaw davis.   great way to end the day.  not much to say about these two, individually or together, that hasn’t been said before.  i do forget, sometimes but not for long, that you really can’t have too much of this stuff.

this was shared on dime by ‘kinebee’ back in (wait for it) august 2008.  gracious!
