  2. Steeplechase burn!!

    Unfortunately CD-R`s for quite some time (not "on demand, you buy a CD and receive a CD-R) .... you have to be lucky to get a CD copy from "old stock" .... also here Steeplechase doesn`t give any guidance/info about this .... a rare chance to buy SteepleChase CD`s for sure was via the japanese Think! 45th Anniversary Series - with sensational transfer ....
  3. “Schiltz Salute to Jazz”

    Diz said back in the 60s: I was waiting for the brothers to show up in the 50s, and I'm still waiting."
  4. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    It's unfortunate that 'If Ever I Would Leave You' from the CD version had to be left out (LP playing time constrictions...?) since it was a very fitting opening track for that album.
  5. FINALLY! Here it is! 🎉 The graphic design is killer. Even the record sleeve itself is really cool. It included a reproduction of the poster from the original performance and the program with all of the notes in it and advertisers also from the original concert. Excellent work. Sounds fantastic too. Very happy
  6. Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder

    Of course at first I was thinking wow that’s cool people discovering jazz now because of a commercial. But then I remembered despite as long as this year has felt, there’s been years in the past that aren’t 2020 when this could’ve happened
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Wow. That is something! What a find! ... Not to mention, it's probably worth scads more than you paid for it. NP: Sonny Stitt and Don Patterson - Brothers-4 (Prestige, rec. 1969)
  8. Today
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Still an (intriguing) mystery. For sure though, the LP is genuine (or I’ll eat my hat).
  10. Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder

    Couldn't you say that Watermelon Man was the start of the "Blue Note Boogaloo" (more than a year earlier)?
  11. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Sadly with added reverb - but Mosaic sorted it out in their stellar box. I have a copy of that Sonny Lester LP too. ’Live In Munich’ was also on A&M Horizon but I’m not sure it had a UK release.

    jlhoots, you're referring to this one?
  13. Steeplechase burn!!

    Tommy, can you get this title? You were out last time: 31090 Dexter Gordon Swiss Nights, Vol. 2
  14. That one I don't know, but this was the first I bought:
  15. Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder

    Not the usual sort of arrangement:
  16. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Such a great record! Gato had an astounding run in the first half of the 70s with Flying Dutchman and Impulse. I love all of them!
  17. Steeplechase burn!!

    Wasn’t it a Amazon on Demand disc. Had that with a couple of Soul Notes... what always surprised me is that the SteepleChase catalogue never seems to get OOP? But when I order I always receive originals and no cdr’s. Not even with a 1990 issue. Did they press so many?
  18. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    That's interesting re: Motown psychedelia as an influence on Patton. I barely know that music. Sounds like new turf (for me) for exploration. Thanks. Also, did you ever find out more about your LP? Is it the only one in existence? No doubt.
  19. Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder

    Jim, can you say more about the timing around this? It's interesting that neither SEARCH FOR THE NEW LAND nor TOM CAT included a "Sidewinder" knock-off, but then the next 3 albums (RUMPROLLER, GIGOLO, CORNBREAD) all did... and all 3 were recorded before the 1965 World Series. So clearly Morgan and Lion thought they had a winning formula on their hands before the Chrysler ad aired. I'm curious whether anyone has done "census" of these "boogaloo" type pieces and around when they started becoming a feature on straight-ahead jazz albums. Was "The Sidewinder" a cause or a symptom?
  20. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Today I received a set of 4 reissues from Japanese Savoy which collects I think (I still haven't heard them) this material. They're these: I wanted this, but didn't find it:
  21. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    My favorite song when I was in high school was Constant Rain from Brasil '66's second album Equinox. So twice a year I pull out the album and give it a spin. So today's the day.
