  1. He's probably got too many albums to choose from
  2. Lee Morgan Live at the Lighthouse, ?

    The Penguin Guide (sixth edition) insists that the Fresh Sound contains material that was recorded at the "Both / And" in June 1970, a month before the Lighthouse date. I wonder who's right...
  3. ...how about 4) I gave my copy to Big Al Rearick
  4. Scott, Don't get me wrong, I love The All Seeing Eye; it's right up my alley, from A to Z. My question was a general one, just in case... I'm interested in most jazz styles (though much swing-style jazz is "not really my cup of tea", it quickly bores me), but I'm a big fan of bop, hard bop, 1960s "advanced hard bop" and modal jazz. Haven't listened much to free jazz / avant garde since my initial interest in it fell into a deep sleep way back in the early 1970s, but I started listening to it again a couple of years ago and now I'm figuring out which albums to add to my humble free / avant garde collection.

    Bertrand, See the first page of this thread re Soul Fountain. I've never heard it, so I can't comment on it; to be honest it doesn't "look" very promising to me - but then again, I'm not a fan of "organ dates" or "dates with organ", to put it mildly.
  6. Sure, that did cross my mind too, of course, but what if you're absolutely negative about an album? I know, it sounds very negative, but there are albums that I absolutely detest and got nothing positive to say about, such as Donald Byrd's I'm Trying to Get Home and A New Perspective, and it's not my intention to hurt anyone.
  7. Question to all: what to do if you don't like or even hate "the album of the week", 1. keep one's mouth shut and refrain from posting; or 2. simply post "yuck"; or 3. politely but firmly say "this is not quite my cup of tea" (posh accent not required ).
  8. Will I regret it?

    At least those I've bought two times!
  9. Will I regret it?

    I take it you're keeping your Duke Pearson albums...

    I've got that one. Haven't listened to it in a long time. In fact, I even forgot that I had it. Thanks for reminding me! It's a really nice date with Clifford, Hank Jones, Reggie Workman and Freddie Waits. Side 1 is a single tune, "Vienna" and Side 2 is "Bohemia After Dark" and "Love For Sale". There's even a double-sided insert with notes and photos about the recording technology that went into this direct-to-disk session. The only info that's nowhere to be found is the recording date ... weird. According to the AMG it was recorded in the summer of 1978: http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&u...l=Azad6vwvta9lk

    Welcome, Menace! By the way, your first picture got lost somewhere, at least on my PC.

  15. Van Dyke Park: Song Cycle

    Try some of Van Dyke Parks' later albums, they're a tad less weird.
  16. Van Dyke Park: Song Cycle

    I was when it first came out in 1967. Sold it and never looked back (maybe I should)
  17. From Denmark, that is...
  18. Mosaic sales

    Let's hope it'll self-destruct before it reaches that point...

    Did you happen to see BNBB characters marvin and PD somewhere during your trek?
  21. New Coltrane Impulse release!

    Lots of unissued Kenny G material, of course.
  22. New Coltrane Impulse release!

    Rumor has it that it'll be a 2CD-set, with lots of unissued material, including a live set (at Antibes, France, I think it was)
  23. Mosaic sales

    Willkommen Herr Doktor! Gut Sie wieder zu sehen!
  24. New Coltrane Impulse release!

    I'm not so sure about that - did you see the competition? Miles & Norah, Kind of Norah... http://www.organissimo.org/forum/index.php...st=0entry6190, first post
  25. The BNBB is back up again!

    Judging by Africa's current signature April 1 will be a new national holiday in the U.S.
