  1. This is indeed a magnificent set - I bought my copy in 1995, new from the Jazz Record Center in NYC - purchase & shared info was by snailmail & "old style" credit card (letters, typed by Fred Cohen - communication over a period of 3 months - those were the days - he mentioned that he had the CT set so I pounced - still that was a shitload of money for me then). The set was $US250 & shipping to Australia was a mere $23.45 (still had surface option available then) - plus this set is a heavy sucker. BTW I visited the Jazz Record Center while I was in NYC last year - Fred wasn't there but I met his wife who was managing the shop (she was the only person there). Bought a few T's (Hawkins, Young, Coltrane - had sold out of my size in Monk & of course no Cecil Taylor).
  2. Wow!! didn't know it was that scarce on CD - bought my copy new from CD Japan in 2010 (was it that long ago??) for about $12 aussie
  3. Some discussion on Dolphy newsgroup re upcoming Resonance release - see extract below - very excited about this indeed!! Zev Feldman came to Japan last year, so he commented on Dolphy's materials in "JaZZ JAPAN"(vol. 92) magazine interview by journalist, Kiyoshi Kojima.( New release will be from "Douglas session", it is being prepared as beginning of 2019. Zev has 8 hours tape(mono-ver. not master tape) from James Newton, originally Dolphy had taken to Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Sorry for my poor English. Atsushi Yamaguchi, Japan.
  4. Hank Mobley In Holland

    has anyone mentioned this release (55 Records Japan) due for April 26 - looking at other 55 Records discs it looks like this may be a Dutch Jazz Archives release Anyone know more about this? Check the Mobley You Tube link below
  5. 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?)
  6. Just wondering if Rudy's Englewood Cliffs Studio still exists or has it been disassembled since his passing? If it is still extant is it open for inspection?
  7. Peter Brötzmann Corner

    Tickets went up for the Brisbane concert (May 5) last night - they're FREE!!! but very limited numbers/space (scored two)
  8. Peter Brötzmann Corner

    Totally blown away!!!! just seen that Brotz is doing an Australian tour & playing here in Brisbane on May 5 (Institute of Modern Art) Misterioso, How did you manage to buy the tickets? I've looked on a couple of sites here in Australia & there do not appear to be any tickets on sale as of yet.
  9. Wow!! new Monk - was browsing my local music store (hardly ever do this anymore) - yes we do still have them in Australia (lot more vinyl than CDs these days) & found this gem - thought they were alternate versions on initial glance but once home soon realised these bonus tracks are live. Must have missed this original thread. Any new Thelonious material is always precious to me. Have the original material on a variety of releases.

  11. 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?
  12. Looks like Karyobin is going to be released in Japan in March (a bit pricey - 2667 yen)
  13. I'm looking for Billy Harper's Capra Black on CD The Strata East CD release appears to be long gone - went to the Strata East site-> have downloads there but it's all Charles Tolliver. Dusty Groove has a "Strata East/Billy Harper Fan Club" version for a reasonable price (approx $15) that is currently OOS/OOP? - anyone know about this one - is it a CD-R? If you go to the Billy Harper site & buy from there (is it the same CD as Dusty Groove's?) it's going to cost me $35 to land here in Australia. For that price I may as well try & search out a Japanese release. While I'm on the subject of Japanese CD's, could anyone give me contact details regarding Hiroshi (there's a continuously ongoing thread re Japanese releases) - is he a US based CD dealer or does he deal from Japan I've been purchasing my Japanese CD's via CD Japan ( - they're are selling the most recent crop of BN's for just under US$12 - have just ordered the Jutta Hipp 10" CD & the 2 Hickory House CD's plus the Hank Mobley Quartet (10")
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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." Squidco has copies
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. vinnie golia quartet

    one for me too!!
  20. Any jazz recommendations for SF (concerts, festivals, clubs etc) - checked SFJAZZ I've sorted out NYC & Chicago so just the West Coast left Anything like The Stone (NYC) in SF?
  21. 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
  22. No, just speculation - who would have thought that someone (Membran) would do a Charlie Parker Records Box
  23. 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
  24. Lee Morgan Film

    Good news for Australia - it's been available via Netflix Australia since late July
  25. 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.
