2019 Eastern Conference First Round Playoff Prediction

It’s that time of year and that’s the NBA playoffs. This has been a wonderful year and in the Eastern Conference, we’re going to crown a new champ. For the last 8 years, Lebron James have ruled but he’s in Los Angeles now. Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of mine and everyone else’s MVP list as it seems it’ll come down between him and James Harden. Giannis have led the Milwaukee Bucks to the best record in the league and the path to the NBA Finals goes through them. The Toronto Raptors, Philadelph...

Trying To Find Affordable Child Care Is Not The Job I Wanted

In the past month, I’ve spent close to 60 hours trying to secure child care for my two-year-old son. This is not the kind of job I ever wanted. It’s a high-stakes, unpaid position that often leaves me quite literally with a bellyache. But as the keeper of the family calendar and bank account and the mother who works from home, this task inevitably falls on me.I would generally describe my partner as supportive, but he has done very little to help with this process, balking the one time I asked ...

Perfect Album; Plays for Bird

It's hard to pick a perfect Sonny Rollins album. So many of them are great. They all have distinct personalities, and nearly all are monumental expressions and achievements. So I made my decision based on feel. I know Sonny. We frequently have long phone conversations. I can hear on albums when he wasn't in a good mood, when he was ferociously competitive, when he was upbeat or unhappy, and so on.

Ronnie, Meredith and Dorothy

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed Ronnie Spector of the Ronettes for my "House Call" column in the Mansion section (go here). We talked about life in the suburbs of Connecticut, the wild animal that caused her to move from a house to a condo and the reason she started to cry during our touching interview.

Meredith d'Ambrosio in 1981

One of my regrets about my college years in Boston during the 1970s is not going to see Meredith d'Ambrosio perform around town. Back then, I was either at the Harvard "Coop" buying jazz LPs, at Paul's Mall and the Jazz Workshop at night during the week and at discos on the weekends. Soon after I started JazzWax in 2007, I made up for lost time, and Meredith and I have been pals ever since. Yesterday, I spent much of the afternoon with Meredith's Another Time.

Perfect Album: Louisiana Slim

One of my favorite 1970s Hammond organists is Leon Spencer. Along with Melvin Sparks (g) Idris Muhammad (d) and Buddy Caldwell (cga), Spencer was a virtual house organist for Prestige during that decade. In addition to recording behind Sonny Stitt and Gene Ammons, Spencer was on several Blue Note albums by Lou Donaldson. In between, Spencer recorded a handful of leadership albums for Prestige. His finest, Louisiana Slim, is perfect on every score. Recorded in 1971 and produced by Bob Porter, t...

Perfect Album: Wess Quintet

By May 1954, tenor saxophonist Frank Wess had spent a year in Count Basie's newly formed New Testament band. To hold onto top players like Wess in the 10-inch LP era, Basie wisely let them record as leaders whenever the band took a break. Basie band trumpeter Joe Newman had started doing this in March '54 on Joe Newman and His Band for the Vangard label, an ensemble that included Wess. In May, Wess recorded his first album as a leader, Frank Wess Quintet, for Commodore. Seven tracks in all wer...
