  1. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Another excellent result for Ajax: after beating Real Madrid in the last 32 they knocked out Juventus in the QF tonight, 3-2 aggregate.
  2. Terrible. One of the great European cathedrals and a centre of medieval polyphony. I'm interested in cathedrals like the Notre Dame purely from a secular perspective, it's part of our history and culture. One doesn't have to be religious to appreciate that.
  3. They were thinking about a complete Fletcher Henderson set a few years ago, but decided to make it a Coleman Hawkins set instead, which, of course, has quite a bit of Henderson.
  4. I suggested a Chico Hamilton follow-up set more or less like that years ago and they told me they had been looking into it but it turned out the licensing issues were way too problematic. I understand licensing for sets with stuff that is owned by more than one rights holder is even more difficult and costly these days. A Revelation Records (not to be confused with the punk label, of course ) set would be very nice indeed, but there might be some licensing issues - I have no idea who owns the material these days or if there's more than one owner.
  5. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    Totally agreed; well put
  6. The Freedom Principle is a great read, even though someone goofed on the contents page and page 105 ("Transition Miles Davis and Model Jazz")
  7. I was sorry to see the Select series go too, but it wasn't commercially viable. I wonder if hiking the price would have helped, sales were were already too low as it was.
  8. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Nice to see Ajax beat Real after all those lean years in the Champions League. They have a good but rather unstable team - excellent one week, rubbish the next.

  10. Happy Birthday Mikeweil

    Belated happy birthday and get well soon!
  11. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    Just heard back from Mosaic why they chose 1963 as a starting point:
  12. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    Sales-wise you may be right, but, as I've said before, I wasn't really impressed by Hoffman's Blue Note hybrid SACDs, way too laid-back and dull for my taste, they lacked "bite" (for want of a better description); I preferred the AudioWave Blue Note XRCDs that were mastered by Alan Yoshida. Same with the Contemporary remasters Hoffman did for a Japanese outlet whose name I forgot. As for the upcoming Mobley set, I have all the albums on CD and I still think the omission of the 1960-1961 recordings is a mistake (unless they couldn't get them licensed), so I'll pass.
