Midnite Eric in the daytime
I'm glad you pulled it off the shelf. Her playing on "I Know You Know" digs a friggin' hole in my living room floor - at a normal listening volume. I don't know what's in the water of Portland's Willamette River, but whatever it is, this wunderkind definitely got a taste of it. This release and the proceeding Chamber Music Society are my absolute favorite from this modern-day giant among bassists. Excellent pick.

We are actually blessed on Oahu because there is a MOST excellent Record Store "Hungry Ear Records" that truly is astonishing. The owner is a Jazz lover so the Jazz bins are well curated. And it's amazing how many stellar Jazz albums you find in Hawaii. My theory is both the Japanese (who are Jazz lovers) and military personnel bring albums to the islands and then leave them there or sell them or give them away. Many times, what I find at Hungry Ear Honolulu astonishes me. So I shop at a record store regularly.
In the old store near Hawaii University, the bargain $1.00 and $2.00 bins were on the floor. I had no problem sitting down on the floor and pawing through the offerings. I found some classic big band Jazz albums once STILL SEALED (factory) for $2.00.
Although nothing can compare to "Sam The Record Man" and "A&A" records on Yonge Street in Toronto. These were icons of the record world and their demise still hurts deeply.
