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!

johnny-griffin-eddie-lockjaw-davis-1962-10-10-penthouse-front-coveri think that you can never really get enough of johnny griffin & eddie “lockjaw” davis together.  finishing up now and thought it’s been a while… so tomorrow’s forecast is a johnny griffin & eddie “lockjaw” davis tsunami.

i was in budapest all last week, and caught micheller myrtill & her band swinguistique at fat mo’s. swinguistique were great, and much as the name might suggest; micheller has a lovely voice & gets the audience going.  don’t miss them if you get a chance.  and fat mo’s was very much my kind of place, wish i’d run across it sooner than my last day in budapest so i could spend some serious time there (that’s what you get on business trips, i guess…).
