  1. Martial Solal

    Nice!!! will be getting these - how did Jordi get access to these tapes ie is this a legit release (like the Hollywood Nocturne box?) Wonder who else he recorded at the Whitney & has any of it seen release?
  2. Billy Harper's Capra Black CD

    I bit the bullet & bought a Japanese Bomba/Strata East version in 2010 (after I started this thread) - this version sounds fine (it's a 24bit remaster) though I havn't heard the Bellaphon version.
  3. October Revolution in Jazz 1964... Any recordings?

    lots of downloadable (free) audio containing Midge from Ian Bruce Huntley's recordings (60's to early 70's) in South Africa http://electricjive.blogspot.com.au/p/ibh-audio-archive-posts.html
  4. Corbett v Dempsey

    Davis, George - Scapula: Bop Acetates, Chicago, 1949 SKU CvsD CD014 "Saxophonist George Davis is an enigmatic figure in postwar jazz. He’s best known for leading the band in which Jackie & Roy met – young singer Jackie Cain encountered pianist Roy Krall in the mid-1940s, playing together under Davis in a club on the south side of Chicago called Jump Town. They cut two 78-rpm records for Aristocrat as the George Davis Quartet; these sides followed Davis into obscurity. In 1948/49, Jackie & Roy went on to work with Charlie Ventura. At the same time, Davis cut a very unusual set of acetates with an unidentified band (bass, drums, piano, trumpet, guitar, Davis on alto and tenor sax), playing some standards and a selection of compositions identified as original but which turn out to have been pilfered from the Fats Navarro songbook. The unique 78-rpm records, which were rediscovered in a record shop in Chicago a few years ago, had not been previously issued. Awkwardly announced by Davis, who pretends that there is an audience though it is clear that they’re being waxed in solitude, these privately recorded bop and r&b tracks are pure Chicago jazz, hot, swinging, and bristling with attitude. Another lovely missive from the dustbin of music history."

  5. Corbett v Dempsey

    John wasn't that forthcoming with details - it's a bit sketchy now - maybe it was estate related - I met so many interesting people (jazz wise) in Chicago & NYC things are a bit of a blur Anyway, he still has copies - I suppose if you go in there & buy a few CDs he may give you one
  6. Corbett v Dempsey

    On my recent trip to the states (September) I dropped in to Dusty Grove & Corbett vs Dempsey (located next to & above DG). I met John Corbett & also grabbed a stash of recent releases including Hats (Billy Bang, Jimmy Lyons, Phillip Wilson, Lacy/Potts - Tips) plus the unreleased Hat session Nuclear Family (McPhee & Jaume) & Wadada Leo Smith, Brotz/Van Hove/Bennink 1971. The bonus item (actually on my wants list) was the wonderful/quirky George Davis "Scapula" - Bop acetates, Chicago 1949 - John gave me a copy as due to contractual issues it had to be withdrawn (not listed on website anymore) & can't be sold. He mentioned the upcoming Willisau & Ra releases but didn't have hard copy at the time. Will order through Dusty Groove.
  7. vinnie golia quartet

  9. RIP Holger Czukay

    RIP Holger Can were a major part of my musical life through the 70s plus I also followed their solo efforts what a loss with Jaki earlier this year, Michael in 2001 & Rebop in 1983
  10. No, just speculation - who would have thought that someone (Membran) would do a Charlie Parker Records Box
  11. LF : Sam Rivers Mosaic

    Just had a look at my box set & I have two copies of disc 1 plus a letter from Mosaic - I'd totally forgotten about this (I'd) placed the old disc & letter under the black plastic inner liner Old (faulty) disc matrix 724381918326D1 Replacement disc matrix 724381918326D1RE1
  12. Lee Morgan Film

    Good news for Australia - it's been available via Netflix Australia since late July
  13. The Spanish (or Andorrans) will eventually (or probably) do a CD box set of these LPs plus other sessions from the KABC Stars of Jazz series that didn't make it to Calliope. Fresh Sounds et al have previously released some of these sessions (non Calliope releases) on CD.
