Cuban vibes on an Autumn's day...

Today I took the day off of work. All alone in the apartment. That means I got some time for myself to listen to some jazz. I decided to put on Jackie McLeans 4, 5 & 6 first. Listened to the whole album. And what an album that is. McLean is one of my favorite jazz artists. And speaking of him, I have an album by him which is the next on the purchase list. The deal is confirmed and I'm aiming to get it secured at the end of the month.

Next I put on Side A of "Afro-Cuban" by Kenny Dorham on Blue Note 5065. This is an album I haven't listen to for a while... it's a beautiful album for sure. Those Cuban vibes... filling my room here in good ol' Stockholm where the Autumn breezes are blowing outside. Speaking of 10 inch albums, I just won an auction on eBay the other day. I never buy anything from eBay or very, very seldom anyway. It was a 10 inch album. I'm super excited about this album, because it's one that I've been after for a long time. This particular album is extremely rare. It's very difficult to find in any condition. I had a copy of this title borrowed home from a dealer in Stockholm a few years back, to see if it was up to scratch condition-wise. It didn't make the grade unfortunately. But now at last I've found another copy which should be tip-top. We'll see when it arrives. I'm very hopeful. So, look out for that one here on the site...

Looking to post more beautiful albums from my collection very soon, stay tuned everyone. Have a great Wednesday! Cheers...
