  1. believe it or not, at that price, I would like the 4 volumes of Devilin Tune, thanks -

  2. the Columbia LP reissues of Wilson's group work - and the Japanese CD of same - have been in horrible sound. I don't know what their sources were. Hep did a much better job but, to answer Jim's question, I hope to pick up the Wilson because of the sound. From what they say on the website, they found a lot of masters, laquers, etc. Because even the European double CD of Wilson solo piano has a lot of bad-sounding cuts. And since Doug Pomeroy, the greatest restorationist in the world, worked on the Mosaic, I have complete confidence.
  3. Louis Armstrong Hot 5 and Hot 7

    the JSP is excellent. The old LPs, pound for pound, sound the best. To my ears.
  4. Berklee in the News (and it ain't pretty)

    sure glad Stalin came up. He was a helluva accordion player. Dmitry and Bigbandrecord have truly gone crazy here.
  5. Christian Scott - Stretch Music

    there was a very brief question and answer period and unfortunately I was not called upon. It is funny because a drummer friend who has worked with him told me the music was fine, but all he did was lecture everyone. Oh well.
  6. Sonny Clark Trio on Time 2 LP reissue news

    actually I assumed that Sonny listened to Duke Jordan.
  7. Christian Scott - Stretch Music

    he is an ok player, but is an idiot as historian. Saw him at Yale last year; he told people that that the ODJB played fast to ridicule jazz (complete bullshit; they played fast because of the popularity of the One Step dance); that the ODJB used the term 'jass' as shorthand for Jackass (complete bullshit); that early bands didn't used drummers with drum sets (he was basing this on not understanding that early acoustic recording processes often weren't able to handle a full drum set); and claimed that there was an actual early record label called "Race Records." Left me totally disgusted, especially as the crowd kept nodding their heads in wonder. No thanks.
  8. Berklee in the News (and it ain't pretty)

    gross and disgusting stuff (and I'm a visiting professor there). I am more and more shocked at what men will do. I mean, there is flirting and 'borderline' obnoxiousness, but the whole 'open season' thing and coercive behavior as described are inexcusable; and it is never acceptable for teacher and student to be involved because of the power relationship.
  9. Sonny Clark Trio on Time 2 LP reissue news

    might be a good idea to actually listen to Duke Jordan first. I will try to assist you; Duke's solo starts ar 2:00 - he uses fewer triplets and double time figures but his touch is very close and, like Clark, as I said early, he is always marking the beat (the second one here is a little more illustrative):
  10. Sonny Rollins - Night at the Village Vanguard

    one of the last pianists that Sonny hired before going to the trio was Dick Katz, who was forevermore somewhat pissed off that just as he got with Sonny, he was gone. and btw, Dawn Finney:
