well, i was going to upload something completely different a day or two ago, but the flacs turned out to be corrupt!  i was able to decode them to wav, and then i said ah to hell with it.  instead, here’s one of several james moody shows that i’ve been listening to since.  i could listen to this all day.  these are just fun shows, between the music (‘natch!), and the sense of humour that comes through so well.  of course, i’m a sucker for a cheap laugh, being practically weaned on p.g. wodehouse.  ok, those are perhaps more dry than cheap, but be that as it may, it was hard to pick, so we’re going for the longest of the james moody shows on offer — sure, you have a better tie-breaker?

fronthere’s a quickie, just somethink that i was listening today while doing not much of anything…  the covers were in the original download by lewojazz on dime.  needless to say, the impossible gentlemen for some fairly obvious reason always makes me think of the league of gentlemen.  maybe the league of impossible gentlemen?  anyone pay money to see the film-of-the-concert for that?
