Another death. Tony Allen, the drummer who is credited with creating Afrobeat along with Fela Kuti, died yesterday at the age of 79. I don’t have much of his work but tonight I’ve been listening to album The Good, The Bad and The Queen. He plays alongside Damon Albarn,Paul Simonon and Simon Tong. RIP Mr Allen

Playing "Duets" by bassist Rob Wasserman and a select group of collaborators including Aaron Neville, Lou Reed, and Rickie Lee Jones. I have my original LP that I bought when it was new and another that I bought as a backup. This afternoon I'm listening to my copy on cassette -- it sounds nearly as good as the LPs.
This is one of the best sounding recordings I have in my collection -- it's worth grabbing if you happen to see it.
Alto sax plyr Richie Cole passed a couple days ago @ 72. Phenomenal player taken too soon (not covid related) Here's an incredible set from the Village Vanguard in early 80s. Hold on to your socks, this is unbelievable!
