I long ago lost a hound, a bay horse, and a turtledove, and am still on their trail. Many are the travellers I have spoken concerning them, describing their tracks and what calls they answered to. I have met one or two who heard the hound, and the tramp of the horse, and even seen the dove disappear behind a cloud, and they seemed as anxious to recover them as if they had lost them themselves.

So much good music, too little time to discover it all! In my endless search for masterpieces that have flown under the radar, I occasionally find myself uncovering shining jewels. When it seems these albums have yet to be properly appreciated I will attempt to explain why I feel they need to be brought out from the shadows.

This is not about collecting jazz vinyl, there are other excellent blogs that have that covered. Besides, many fine recordings are only available on digital formats. I am interested in the music and the musicians.
