I usually use this space on Thanksgiving Day to write about the state of the world and how music can help us through hard times, giving us hope for a better world. This year, I am going to forgo my editorializing––chances are good you're talking about the world at your dinner table and/or on ZOOM calls with the family. You don't need me to go through that. I just wish you the best and hope that this is a time of good health and quiet reflection.
In the meantime, this month brings a number of fascinating "historical" albums, some with music not released before by Sonny Rollins, Bill Evans Trio 1968, and Wolfgang Lackerschmid/ Chet Baker Quintet with Larry Coryell, Buster Williams, and Tony Williams––let us take a look.
