(1994/Delmark) 8 tracks, The year 1994 marked a transition for Ed Petersen, it was in 1994 that the tenor saxophonist left Chicago to accept a teaching position at the University of New Orleans. Chicagoans were surprised to see him leave -- he had been a fixture at a famous Windy City jazz club called the Green Mill. But the offer was too good to pass up, Petersen knew that he would be working with pianist Ellis Marsalis (father of Wynton and Branford) in the University of New Orleans´ jazz department. Recorded when Petersen was getting ready to move, this 1994 session was, in effect, a fond farewell to the jazz community of Chicago. The Haint, Petersen´s second album as a leader, finds him leading an all-Chicago cast that includes Dr. Odies Williams III or Billy Brimfield on trumpet, Willie Pickens on piano, Brian Sandstrom on bass, and Robert Shy on drums. The influence of John Coltrane -- Petersen´s primary influence -- is impossible to miss on this album. It comes through on his own songs (which include the exuberant ´Larry Smith´ and the abstract ´Walking in the Sky´) as well as performances of Thelonious Monk´s ´Green Chimneys,´ Dizzy Gillespie´s ´Bebop,´ and Fats Waller´s ´Jitterbug Waltz.´ Few surprises occur, and no one will accuse Petersen of being the most innovative or forward-thinking player in the world. Nonetheless, his performances are competent and swinging. With The Haint, Petersen ended the Chicago period of his life and did so with enjoyable, if derivative, results.
(2017/Modern Harmonic) 10 Tracks - Digipack! Beyond Hip! From Cool Jazz to Hard Bop! This extraordinary soundtrack, featuring many of the finest jazz musicians this side of anywhere, is a collection of small ensemble and large band arrangements so perfectly indicative of its era. It’s beyond hip and runs the gamut from cool jazz to hard bop. Moreover, it authorized the virtuosic freedom of the best of New York’s jazz community. The swingingly cinematic score was commissioned for a Sexploitation classic entitled Satan in High Heels, the story of a woman caught in the decadent nightlife of the Big City. Mundell Lowe’s compositions aptly complement and enhance the story’s mood and atmosphere while often juxtaposing humor with strains of profound symbolism. The score, a stellar example of ´´jazz noir” however, is never decaffeinated. It’s relentlessly vibrant and engaging. Mundell Lowe’s virtuosity knows virtually no bounds. His comprehensive and artistic musicality has placed him in among the top players in jazz. In addition to working at both NBC and CBS in New York he was the staff guitarist for Dave Garroway’s original Today Show. Both the film, and this score are respective examples of classic cult cinema. The music is often sensuous and sexy but at times as tough as a two-dollar steak. It’s the real deal.
David Ames Wells (1828-1898), a prominent American financial economist, political activist and apostle of laissez faire, was a staunch advocate of free trade and the abolition of the tariff. Wells wrote a large number of books, pamphlets, and articles ... His chief interests were the tariff, the theory of money and the currency question, and taxation. His discussion of all of these took character from his inspection of American economic life, which was marked in his period by progressive lowering of costs of production through the application of science. He, more than others, was the expositor of the nature and consequences of the machine age ... Some of his most effective writing was in opposition to fiat money or depreciated monetary standards. An excellent example of his work in this field is his ROBINSON CRUSOES MONEY, issued first in 1876 when resumption was in doubt, and again in 1896 when the free silver advocacy was in full swing. Wells was among the earliest to appreciate the importance of what has since been known as technological unemployment, the displacing of men by machines ... His writing and speaking was marked by simplicity, candor, and extraordinary facility in the popular adaptation of statistics. His aptness in illustration was as charming as it was effective ...

They wrapped their arms around each other and swayed together to the music and Alan felt a thrill rush through him from the mischievous way his mother was looking at him. Bringing her lips up to his ear, she said in a low husky voice, What do you think peoples reactions would be if they knew that it was your mother you were dancing with like this?

What do you think they would say, she continued as she brought her face up to his, if they knew it was your mother kissing you like this?
