GUEST,TheOldMole What Music is in Your Car Stereo? (103* d) RE: What Music is in Your Car Stereo? 09 May 00

Well, I just took out a bunch of CDs that had cuts of mine on them, so I don't have to answer that.

I'm listening to two things, over and over. One is the Lionel Hampton Decca recordings from the 40s. I don't think people appreciate just how good Hampton was, and how important an influence. He's pretty near as important as Louis Jordan in the development of jump blues and rock 'n roll.

Second...more and more into latin music, especially Afro-Cuban. Just picked up a CD reissueof a 1975 ablum of Dizxzy Gillespie and Machito playing compositions by Chico O'Farrill, and I could listen to this one forever. It has the richness of the Miles Davis-Gil Evans collaborations. O'Farrill is one of our greatest, and least recognized, composers...and I trust I don't have to explain hw good Diz and Machito are.
