  1. So there was never a single bonus track released from Crescent? Maybe I am thinking of the 2-CD 'Coltrane', which I have.
  2. Universal Japan Fall 2021 Reissue Series

    I just found out that the woman on the cover of Street Lady was the sister of a friend of mine. She died in an unresolved homicide 40 years ago. Terrible. Did we ever figure out what is on the cover of Mother Ship?
  3. I only have the GRP of Crescent, so I might upgrade. Was there once a 2-CD version or am I dreaming?
  4. Sunny Murray unissued

    It was. Pumped that I recognized Alan Shorter right away!

  7. Excellent. If Feldman is looking for some more Blakey, there are two tracks with Kenny Dorham subbing for Lee Morgan at Newport in 1961 at the Library of Congress. This would have to be coupled with other material, e.g. the Blakey 1959 Newport with Mobley and Morgan that has never been officially released. I would buy it.
  8. Fire Music - Free Jazz Documentary

    Is a stream possible in the future?
  9. I respect that some people prefer vinyl, but the fact that it is driving the reissue market right now is absurd, and the price-gouging is shameful. There was a reason they only released four tracks in the vinyl era.
  10. They talked to the right people and got some great quotes out of them. Hank had it rough, and his life was ultimately very sad, but it makes me happy to see what an impact he had on future generations.

    What was he calling about?

    WPI’s Jazz History Database kicks off a hot listening session Thursday September 9 on Zoom 3pm An extended meditation on the life of Phil Schaap (1951–2021) 5:30pm Hot music from 78s played by Charles Iselin and/or others 6:30pm Ras Moshe on Sam Rivers’s early 70s orchestra music 8:00pm Sunny Murray sounds (Crossing Tones Power Hour, David Beal host) https://wpi.zoom.us/j/97495476280 [more options below] All Times are Eastern (EDT) All are welcome to join any time. Details: From the Lab (JHDB) 3:00pm to .... Historian, teacher and broadcaster Phil Schaap died earlier this week. Respectful apologies for the abruptness of that announcement to those who are just now hearing this news. During this Thursday’s session we’ll consider Phil’s deep Jazz work on the planet. While listening to some of the timeless recordings that he helped us to hear better, we’ll collectively reflect on Phil’s influence on the study of Jazz as an art form, the lessons of his teaching, and his indelible mark on friends, colleagues, students and generations of listeners. All are invited to fold in your observations and reminiscences with those of our several hosts, who have all studied in the Schaap school in one fashion or another. This extraordinary session of Thursday’s Jazz Potpourri is expected to blend in some or all of the following in an organic way: 5:30pm 78 session with Charles Iselin and co. 6:30pm to 8 Ras Moshe presents some rare ensemble music written and led by multi-instrumentalist Sam Rivers (1923–2011) 8pm to 9 David Beal guides us through a sampling of music from drummer Sunny Murray’s Untouchable Factor, out of the Kazunori Sugiyama collection.
