  1. Funny Rat

    Just giving Funny Rat another spin.
  2. Favorite New & New-to-You Recordings of 2017

    Props here for the William Parker and David S. Ware releases on AUM mentioned by Sonnyhill. Both include a bit of drift but nonetheless very pleasurable. Not a big new listening year for me in any genre - when I have the time I just rake over old coals... much of which I can’t remember or never played when I bought it...
  3. ECM is now streaming their catalogue

    Their front-page statement reads a bit nostalgic and bitter. Things change Dipping back into titles I once had and sold, as well as a few others, I find this catalog quite faded, even beyond the usual warnings about ECM as MOR comfort listening. At least the appearance on Spotify protects me from any nostalgic repurchasing on my own part!
  4. Confirmation on Teddy Wilson and Mosaic update

    No Black Friday in Stamford then...
  5. Mars Williams presents an Ayler xmas

    You need to grow your carbon footprint!
  6. Thanks Lon. Bit disappointing...
  7. Does anyone know where this set was planned and made?
  8. Any teenagers here care to give their opinion about this box?
  9. Those youths and their CD collections, eh?
  10. Happy Birthday brownie!

    Have a good one, Guy.
  11. Purging for a move - sales advice wanted

    The Smithsonian I suppose. I should think they get a lot of calls from collectors. Maybe not so many archival visits. There’s your problem, by the way.
  12. Please Help Me Go Deeper Into The Collection

    Some albums are just good: That or "Introducing..."
  13. What would you ask Chick Corea?

    Who cuts his hair? Sorry. Styles. Who styles his hair.
  14. Classic Blue Notes on SHM-CD

    Thanks for the heads up. Though I've almost given up on CDs I'll be back in for...the two least interesting albums here! I can't stop myself.
  15. LF : Sam Rivers Mosaic

    Add that amazon prices for CDs are sometimes above list, due to their peculiar algorithms.
