Today I have part of a tooth extracted. Been through it before, not a big deal. Takes about an hour. It does kinda blow the day though, since you usually don't feel like doing much after it's all over.
In bed at 12:52, up just before 8. Not a good sleeping night but some shuteye was achieved. I normally get plenty of sleep, so it'll feel like most any other day- at least once I get a couple cups of coffee in me.
Music news. Last night's listening was an old Sonny Rollins recording from 1956. I was two years old in 1956. Clifford Brown was also on this record. He's probably the most amazing thing on it, even more than Sonny. Max Roach, Richie Powell and George Morrow are the rhythm section. This was actually the Max Roach/Clifford Brown Quintet, but Sonny's recording date.
I am, and always have been, a huge Gerry Mulligan fan. Most of his recordings I like are also from the late 50's. From Gerry Mulligan I learned phrasing. How to leave space. That kinda good stuff.
Cat on lap. She's letting me wrap this up, sort of. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Tuesday to you. Ich bin outa here. More later.
