  1. went to Amazon site via link but getting "This title is not currently available for purchase" - maybe it has something to do with an out of US customer (I'm in Australia). Anyone from the states having the same issue?? I can't even get into the "sample' info
  2. IMHO it looks like the Benny Golson/Art Farmer Jazztet etc box
  3. Corbett Vs. Dempsey have released (CD) in their latest batch the ICP LP Groupcomposing (Mengelberg, Brotzmann, Parker, Rutherford, Bennink x2, Bailey - live 1970) I'm wondering if it will be a "needle drop" as is the version in the ICP Box set. They plan to release more ICP material down the track - I presume these will be legit but what about the source material? Maybe I'll drop a line to John Corbett & see.
  4. Black Saint / Soul Note Box Set Sale

    So is this the end of the line for these wonderful box sets - 45 AFAI can ascertain I was hoping for so many more
  5. Norma Miller RIP

  6. Sidney Bechet

    I've just picked up the Sidney Bechet Kaleidoscope/Vogue (1989) CD - Salle Pleyel 31 Janvier 52. It is supposed to contain the whole concert (minus 5 unissued titles). The majority of the titles from both the Blue Note 10" LP's (7024/5) appear to be derived from this concert (two songs from 7025 come from the later March 12 concert). The March 12 date was apparently released on a double CD (660504) - can't seem to track this one down. Was it released in the same Kaliedoscope/Vogue series? Most Bechet Pleyel CD's for sale on Amazon (US/UK/France/Germany) are usually poorly detailed (re label & tracks) except for the Masters of Jazz (Italian?) release so it's difficult to know if I'm looking at the right one. I've never seen a double pleyel set advertised. Have the two concerts ever been released as a single set (2 or 3 CD's?)
  7. How much overlap with these two volumes, 1995 & 2000 publications respectively??
  8. just got my email this morning & have ordered - can't get enough of Horace & the Arkestra/UGMAA
  9. Basil Kirchin's legendary Columbia LP, "Worlds within Worlds" has finally had a reissue via Trunk Records (run of 1600 LPs & no CD/digital version, ATS?) Jonny Trunk is a big fan of Basil & has access to his tape library - he has been releasing Basil's material (previously released & unreleased) over the years (LP & CD). This is one of BK's recordings I've been waiting for - lots of Evan Parker (ts & ss) plus Derek Bailey. The original Columbia LP sells for triple figures (thousands) - it's been hyped up the the "Diskaholiks" (Mats Gustafsson, Thurston Moore, Jim O'Rourke)
  10. Keynote label

    Have given up waiting for the Mosaic Keynote set (too many contractual problems I presume?) & I'm not interested in the Japanese LP set, so I'm trying to pick up the individual CD's that were released in the very early 90's. So far I've managed to find the Coleman Hawkins 4CD set (picked up a still sealed copy for a great price), Lester Young & Lennie Tristano. From what I can gather ther are another 7 Cd's in the series 4. The Keynoters With Nat King Cole (Vol. 9) 5. Red Rodney - Early Bebop -> this one always seems to command a high price!! 6. Benny Carter/Arnold Ross (Vol. 7) 7. Red Norvo (not sure of title) 8. The Small Herds (Chubby Jackson/Bill Harris/Flip Phillips) -> have ordered a copy of this 9. The Fabulous Ellingtonians 10. Roy Eldridge & The Swing Trumpets Any more that i havn't found? - I know this is not comprehensive but it cuts a huge swathe through the keynote discography
  11. Went for the 3LP set & very impressed by the SQ of these discs but couldn't resist digitalising them - perfect fit onto two CDr's Gotta be my release of the year The soprano track (A5) is stunning
  12. LPs that have never made it into CD

    The Australian Rufus label contains a lot of McGann material/CD releases. His other Emanem LP "Kindred Spirits" has been rereleased via Rufus.
  13. LPs that have never made it into CD

    One of Bernie's best but has never been released on CD. Lloyd Swanton (one of the Necks) originally financed the session & has the tapes.

  16. Sun Ra "Monorails and Satellites Vols. 1, 2 and 3"

    just received the 2CD set today - I presume it came with a booklet (unfortunately mine didn't) - all my other Cosmic Myth CDs have associated mini booklets the set was sealed & stickered - maybe it was never included? Anyone else had the same problem. Bought my copy from Import CDs - don't really want to return it (they have a bothersome return policy) can't seem to find any contact details for the label either
  17. Mick Jagger Illness

    If it's his aortic valve, he may not even require open heart surgery (chest cracked) - he may get a TAVI aortic valve (newish technology) where it's inserted via one of the femoral (leg) arteries - seats over the old valve which does not need to be removed.
  18. Scott Walker RIP

    Scott was very very very special to me - he never looked back & surfed that wave of progressiveness/avant garde right till the end. He never "sold out" IMHO. Wow!! he even had one of my jazz heroes, Evan Parker contribute to his 1983 LP "Climate of Hunter". RIP Scott
  19. Any *early* Pink Floyd fans? (67-72 era)

    Yep, big fan of the Syd Barrett years - lost interest after "Wish You Were Here". I've never actually listened to "The Wall" except for bits I've heard on the radio (not that impressed). "Interstellar Overdrive" is one of the great tracks of the 60s IMHO.
  20. Ah "Radio Birdman" (Aloha Steve & Danno) - now we're going back to the 70's & you cannot forget "The Saints" - both punk legends & predating the Sex Pistols, The Saints (remember "Stranded") originated from my home town, Brisbane & are all my vintage. Ed Kuepper (ex Saints, Laughing Clowns - now that's a great aussie band) moved back here quite a few years ago & is still very active on the music scene.
  21. Any recommendations on Mary Halvorson's output - where should I start? Have there been other threads on her?
  22. Mary Halvorson - best place to start?

    I forgot about this post I made back in 2015 but I eventually met Mary (plus Sylvie Courvoisier) when they played to a handful of people at "The Owl" in Brooklyn back in September 2017. My partner & I sat at the very front & they both allowed me to take photographs during the performance. Also, it was a real buzz talking to both of them at the bar afterwards. Totally no shit/pretension from either. They were lovely.
  23. I had so much of that US Paisley underground material plus the Aussie & NZ equivalents on original vinyl (including the legendary NZ label Flying Nun) but sold much of it through the 90s to feed my jazz habit (which was voracious) "Under The Milky Way" LP & single were huge "indie" hits in Australia but as you say that was much later in the Church's career (early 90s)
