Every jazz lover and his dog knows this one, it is easily the most recognizable Blue Note album, and understandably so. The groove is low down (and dirty sometimes), the interplay between these top-notch musicians is exemplary, a perfect companion for those relaxing, late-night sessions with the proverbial scotch at hand. Even the late Stevie Ray Vaughan covered the famous Chitlins con Carne (albeit not very successfully). Here's your chance to taste the real thing the way it was supposed to be heard in its original 1963 monophonic version from my private collection (complete with surface noise here and there, perfect for evoking that all-important time capsule effect)...

The attitude of the gallant Six Hundred which so aroused Lord Tennyson's admiration arose from the fact that the least disposition to ask the reason why was discouraged by tricing the would-be inquirer to the triangle and flogging him into insensibility.

Music posted here is for information purposes only. I don't subscribe to the notion that record companies are ripped off by the proliferation of blogs like this one. It is my firm belief that quite the contrary happens i.e. by bringing awareness to hitherto virtually unknown artists to the general public the music benefits greatly and a new level of interest is created.
Listeners are therefore kindly requested to buy the original music and support artists if they fancy what they hear - remember: if you like it, buy it!
