Happy New Year to all!
I guess one resolution I have is to try to keep this blog up for at least the coming year. Another should be to cut back on my purchases, but who knows if I can keep that one -- I already have a list of cds I know are coming soon, like the Monk Project on IPO, Aaron Goldberg on Sunnyside, Dialogues Trio on Babel, Billy Hart on ECM, and Mark Soskin on Kind of Blue. Not to mention non-jazz, like a big disk of Bob Dylan songs for Amnesty International.
My last disk for 2011 was just purchased -- Norma Winstone "Stories Yet to Tell." I did get a few at J and R in New York yesterday which pushed me over 800 for the year, but most were older OJCs -- Coleman Hawkins, Gene Ammons, Lockjaw Davis.
So enjoy the holiday with food, laughter, music, friends, and family, and see you again in 2012.
