her latest flame


obssessed with this at the mo... can't quite tear myself away


deathly horace and all the serious youths of the netherlands


singing along to myself the jeri southern version


and the sweat dripping


and all those stupendous shots of big chords and rimshots and fat strings



oh boy

horace silver quintet - senor blues (live)

Lovely lovely stuff. And it does look just as good as it sounds.

Have you noticed that Fopp are banging out 'Horace-Scope' for three quid? It's from 1960 so it's pretty much this group, and it's got some great tuneage on it.

Three of the musicians (Cook, Mitchell and Taylor) also turn up on a Blue Mitchell album from 1965 called 'Down With It' which I personally consider to be the biz, featuring a shakin' 8 minute twist-friendly version of Hi Heel Sneakers. Recommended.

But what are Junior Cook's albums like? Don't think I've ever heard any? Have you? There's always something to buy next!
