So it looks like every one who spent time at Argo/Cadet will have a "black hole" in their careers when it comes to their CD discography. That's a shame, but it is also still puzzling. Even if as bresna suggests there was a problem with a lack of original masters, it was not uncommon for record labels to reissue a CD from the best available vinyl source. Why would a major record label sleep on reissuing classic albums by so many legendary musicians? Other labels were reissuing their old Jack McDuff, Lou Donaldson, James Moody and Kenny Burrell albums on CD and finding a market for them. Why couldn't the owners of Argo/Cadet even be bothered to try?
Yes, I was thinking I have seen several Muse LPs in used record stores that have never made it to CD. I just could not think of a specific artist who has been particularly poorly served when it came to CD reissues.
Only attended a Jazz Showcase event the year I was in Chicago for the Jazz Festival, and it was at a fancy hotel downtown, but I like how it was never a "place", it was a "thing".
Pretty amazing run, and kudos to him for attempting to always keep it real, as he knew it.
