Listening To: Love For Sale (1959)

Love For Sale LP

Technically, not listening to, but still waiting for: Pioneer jazz pianist Cecil Taylor (1929 – 2018) and his fifth album, Love For Sale from 1959, the year I’m fixated on with my own writing work. Vinyl’s been ordered, and back-ordered since forever. Suitable background music’s a must when I’m pounding the keyboard. The Mac keyboard that is. I’m not tinkling any ivories here. Love that album cover, though. The photo could be a scene right out of ‘The Stiletto Gumshoe’.

 

Listening To: (I Wish)

The Music From Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer

From Modernizor at Tumblr and Pinterest, originally from Flickr, The Music From Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer, which looks like it’s music from the Mike Hammer TV series, arranged and conducted by Skip Martin…featuring RCA Victor’s ‘Sound Of Violence’?! Oh I wish that LP was spinning on my turntable right now.

 

Listening To: Ellen Foley’s Night Out

Night Out

Listening to last night: Actor/singer Ellen Foley’s debut album Night Out, more pop than I’d typically have playing while working, but this one’s special. Most folks remember Foley not for her own solo projects, but as the incredible voice on Meat Loaf’s mega-selling Bat Out Of Hell album (though another singer toured with the Loaf, Foley doing a co-star stint on NBC’s sitcom Night Court).
