I love vinyl.

I love to go searching in thrift stores and flea markets. I love finding the most obscure stuff that I've never heard of. It's partly a function of the fact that I love music. And it's also partly that I love to sample obscure things for my compositions. But I also just love the feel and smell of an old record.

So the other day I was in this thrift store, and I found this record by Jean Pierre Mas and Cesarius Alvim called Rue de Lourmel. It's the most beautiful jazz piano and bass improvisations, but especially if you pitch it down about -10 and play it through some delay. It's quite eloquent in its melodic phrasing. It was recorded in Paris in 1976.
