gdc just jarred my thinking a bit. Not sure who Jim Pepper is but Art Pepper's, "Meets the Rythm Section" should have been on my list. I also should have included Mingus' "Black Saint and the Sinner Lady" and Monk's "Monk's Music."

Always skirted around Black Saint....the live Monk at the Five Spot is a classic for me...Johnny Griffin so freakin wasted/high and so into playing that he's yelling his turn to take solos, that dude was on fire. Jim Pepper was another monster tenor player who's claim to fame was Native American influenced jazz - played with lots of really great players, Don Cherry (my absolute personal fave, though I can't bring myself to nail down my fav album of his), Ornette Coleman, Dewey Redman (see a pattern?), Charlie Haden and some of his best work was with Paul Motian's group with Bill Frisell and Joe Lovano.

Ok, now, I'm sure you're wondering why I chose this particular live album over her oft-praised Liza With a 'Z'. It's not an easy choice, but for me, repeated listenings and comparisons of the two make it clear. First and foremost...the songs. The tunes on Live From Radio City are simply better than the Liza With a 'Z'. A standout is her MINDBLOWING rendition of Some People from "Gypsy" (easily her second best performance of the song, the first being the showstopper she delivered at the Kennedy Center Honors). It also features a phenomenal Stepping Out, done as a reprise, complete with a fantabulous tap dancing routine. I think the album would benefit from a performance of Cabaret, but there's enough live versions of that floating around.

I saw Connie's name as the last poster and my morbid sense of curiosity kicked-in. It seems that my fears have been confirmed.

Wire: Pink Flag Put this on for my morning commute today and remembered what an amazing album it is. Sounds remarkably fresh considering it was released 30 years ago! If you like bands such as REM, Guided By Voices, or anything influenced by british punk (Clash, etc) you should definitely check this one out. Highly influential.
