Thats a great one,well worth getting...if you like Piano based Jazz(like me!) then Bill Evans is the man for you,"Waltz for Debby" or "Portrait in Jazz" are both great,theres a really good website here,for long time Jazz afficiandos(i probably didnt spell that right but you get the idea)and newcomers alike......

http://forums.allaboutjazz.com


theres a good radio station i like as well,from Toronto i think,its how i discovered Bill Evans,Iceberg Radio.....

You should check out some Sun Ra. I was just thinking about how I should be listening to him more.

Late to the party as usual, just found out Dave King does a radio show on the current. Should be interesting. http://blog.thecurrent.org/2015/05/the- ... -airwaves/
