  1. The 80-20 principle of listening to jazz albums

    I had my iPod classic for Jazz expanded to 768 GB. I've filled it with all of my usual suspects as well as assorted other things that I was once enamored with or curious about. Shuffling by song, album, and artist has helped me to curate a collection (playlist) of tunes that I enjoy coming back to. I import as ALAC files, so I'm happy with the fidelity, the portability, and the options for listening. 18,000 tunes spanning 470 GB. Then again I have many times that over in CDs to also visit and revisit. A good problem to have. So 80/20 seems reasonable but I'm working on changing that up. As FZ said, "Without deviation from the norm progress is not possible."
  2. Black & Blue Records - CD Offer

    My Black and Blue CDs arrived yesterday along with the Fresh Sound titles I had ordered.
  3. Box Sets For Sale

    PM sent on Ben Webster.
  4. I like the Apple Iphone 7 and 8. i had the Plus version of both models. They are the last two generations to have the home button. I'm not ready to live without it. I went for the 256 GB of memory which allows me to carry around one of my iTunes libraries so that I always have music for my car or with me- since I always have my phone. This is my fourth iPhone and we have many in the family. We've never had an issue with reliability. Quite the opposite actually. Never had a problem. And your iPhone is six years old. I've heard that future models may bring back the home button while in other places I've seen that the home button is gone for good. I expect to get another 4-5 years out of this phone.
  5. $89.99 after the 10% off and including the $21 to have it shipped stateside. The box doesn't seem to show up on any of the expected retail websites.
  6. Reggae/Afropop/World music boxes

    PM sent in Tougher than Tough box.
  7. Some cd's for sale

    PM went on Change of Time. I really like Adam Kolker. I’m not previously aware of this record, but John Hebert’s stuff tends to be mighty tasty too. 👍
  8. This is such an excellent set. I had a half dozen of the albums and a four CD collection of Fela's work before I sprung for this set. I was impressed by the high level of consistency with his music.Wonderful stuff. Highly recommended.
  9. Black Saint/Soul Note CDs

    I'm not sure what kind of interest there may be for these but I'll float these out there anyway- These are authentic BS/BN cds, not the "on-demand" cds that Amazon is doing. All discs/inserts are in mint/near mint condition. Prices include shipping to CONUS addresses. Paypal only please.

  10. Greenleaf $3 CD Sale!

    I've been considering it. They were $50 last year so they've recently gone up. Since I'm not much of a download person, preferring physical product, I didn't see the benefit for me. I signed up for their mailing list finally too. I've shopped there before but somehow didn't get on the list. Now I'll be informed and it will cost me even more money. Good thing I'm single.
  11. Apple is getting rid of iTunes: report

    I would expect, and hope, that the new Music App will end up being iTunes for the next generation. Or maybe Apple will allow those who use and rely on iTunes the opportunity to continue with it on that platform. I have no videos, photos, podcasts, etc. on my iPods so a stand alone music app/program would be fine for me. It seems to me like reports of iTunes demise though are somewhat overstated. Apple has sold a lot of people and awful lot of music through the years. I can't imagine that they would take away ability for people to access and play that music. I know that those of us who use iPods are lower on their list of priorities, but I also have a lot of music on my 256 GB iPhone. I suppose you could call it the end of an era, but a new era surely awaits.
  12. Greenleaf $3 CD Sale!

    I sprung for most everything except the Keberle...I listened to the samples and the vocals weren't really something that drew me to his music. But to each his own.
  13. Greenleaf $3 CD Sale!

    Thanks for the heads up. I ended up springing for ten titles. Only gripe, and a minor one at that, was the $22 shipping charge. Oh well.
  14. Franz Koglmann reissues on Black Monk

    I emailed the blackmonk address and got a swift reply. The discs are $15 each with shipping of $6.50 for the first and $2 for each additional to the US. The charge was actually for Euros not US dollars...
  15. Franz Koglmann reissues on Black Monk

    After poking around a bit, these appear to have been Record Store Day 2019 titles. The LPs are still readily available but the CDs not so much. I'm afraid that they might be tough to come across...which is a bummer because I really enjoy Koglmann. Particularly the Hat stuff that he's done.
