|Grant Green suggestions|
All the classic Blue Note recordings mentioned previously are great.There's a trio session from 1967 called Iron City with big John Patton worth checking out. It's funky and bluesy and intimate. It's been reissued on CD but sounds great on vinyl i...
|Gruv Glide - Do you use it?|
Tried it.I found it left a film on the records and didn't improve the sound.
|Leben CS600 Owners - Help|

|Art Blakey experts please ... ?|
Free For All (1964)A little harder hitting than some of the earlier recordings mentioned here. Blakey's on fire and he pushes Freddie and Wayne to the edge of hard bop and beyond while keeping it deep in the groove.Highly recommended.

Free for all...One of the great Blue Notes of all time.... and Art's on fire.
