today was a pablo held day, for no particular reason but a good choice.  i nearly picked a great show where pablo held is joined by chris potter , but in the end, this organ-trumpet combination won out.  both shows are mostly his compositions, which only made the choice more difficult.

you’ll be no doubt overjoyed to know that cipjazz is now on twitter, we’ll see how long that lasts.  on the downside, though, the site was briefly hacked and searches on google have gone wonky.  i’m trying to work it all out.  it’ll no doubt hurt traffic here, but then i’ve never put much effort into “seo”.

finally, past daily has a great recording from rai of a 1962 chet baker / rené thomas show in bologna.  and the recordings seem to be in mp3/320 now, a definite improvement.  check it out.
