Somewhere in The Carolinas – I recently relocated from Georgia to North Carolina for reasons that are only good. Every place I’ve moved to has been slower than the last. Here, I am breathing with a full heart and eyes open. It is a positive move and movement.

This past weekend I ventured to a few local thrift shops and scored the following gems. Who says one dollar used l.p.s don’t exist anymore?

Swinging Brass with The Oscar Peterson Trio [1959/ PNR] – Oscar Peterson

Look Around [1968/ A&M] – Sergio Mendes + Brazil ’66

These Foolish Things [1975/ Island] – Bryan Ferry

The Sensational Ray Charles [1965/ Coronet] – Ray Charles

Libra [1975/ Motown] – Libra

The Oscar Peterson Trio And The Gerry Mulligan Quintet At Newport [1963/ Verve] – Oscar Peterson + Gerry Mulligan

Late this afternoon, I scored this copy of ‘Cecil Taylor Unit’ for two dollars while thrifting. This title has been on my list forever. It’s in very good condition. (I) almost didn’t hang in there (i.e., keep crate digging) due to the copious amounts of empty covers. Far out, man.
