29 Jan 2007, 06:19 by dalemcbdnlI had a friend who was a big Horace Tapscott fiend. His house had Nimbus records floating around everywhere. It was like there was a billion or so of them. Horace was on ALL of 'em. The logo looked like a stick figure tipping a frisbee. Something like that but we're talking an LA record label here. I exaggerate a little but it WAS surreal! All the Nimbi jackets were a dull blue and you couldn't tell one from another. I felt like a Nimbus bigot. I'd show up and John (that was the guy's name) would pull out one of those awful nondescript blue sleaves and play some Tapscott. The thing is, I kind of liked the music. It "swung" and Roberto Miranda was really pretty good on bass. I had to admit Tapscott played "tasty" jazz. But for me that was sort of like telling an artist whose work I actually found boring: "hmm, very nice." The music felt like something you'd find at an upscale and smokey LA jazz bar before the LA-LAs realized cig smoke was indoor smog. It just wasn't my "thing."
