"Straight-Ahead" jazz on BendingCorners? Yes, you heard that right. But don't worry, this ain't your standard straight fare. This is BendingCorners after all. Its straight, with a twist; shaken, not stirred. Straight jazz with bent corners.

Just came across your site while I was searching for a download of Effi.
This is a nice compilation - thanks. The Westbrook is indeed track 9 (the final track) with Harry Beckett on flugelhorn. That was one of the first few jazz lps I bought, and my copy seems to have worn as well as yours with similar needle crackling.

A really excellent mix. All I need is the smokey jazz club to go with the super cool sounds, and I'd be in paradise!

whoops. it turns out that mike westbrook is awesome (bit of trouble doing the math on the minutes on my part evidently). is it part 9 from the album (perhaps the best bit, at least from the snippets on the web)?

Excellent. One of the best ever mixes and there certainly has been some competition.

Many thanks.

It's not the early morning wake up call but everything i like is right here in this session (punch). You're taste on this "straight" playground with the edges is moving and inspiring.

Nothing but a treath for the ears... and the way i want my BC served...

"a good punch in the face"??
Exactly what do you mean by that?

Did the set expand your horizons of what "straight jazz" can be; like an early morning wake up call?
Or is it so far off base from BC's usual fare that its jarring (in a bad way)?
Or do you just not like it?

This whole straight thing is a good punch in the face.
