  1. Looks like Leon Thomas singing “The Creator has a Master Plan” with Santana (1974) is to be released: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MV3SPLJ/?tag=imwan-20 If anyone gets an advance copy, please tell us your opinion of the release.
  2. Analyst: Target should drop CDs

    I bought the CD of the Beatles Live at the Hollywood Bowl and the Norah Jones Day Breaks CD at Target.
  3. I remember one story that Saundra Hummer wrote about – she said she was once walking down the street with a bag that had records she had just bought at a record store. She walked past a group of men who stopped her to ask her what records she had bought, and it turned out that some of those men were musicians on the records she had just bought. If I remember correctly, one of those men was Shorty Rogers.
  4. RIP Greg Lake

    RIP
  5. Wayne Shorter and Norah J.

    Some details from http://www.norahjones.com/: “Coming October 7th, Day Breaks is Norah's sixth solo album and a kindred spirit to her breakout debut Come Away With Me. It finds her returning to the piano and her roots. The album features Blue Note luminaries including saxophonist Wayne Shorter, organist Dr. Lonnie Smith, and drummer Brian Blade on a 12-song set that presents 9 new originals alongside covers of songs by Horace Silver, Duke Ellington and Neil Young”
  6. Wayne Shorter and Norah J.

    Has anyone already heard the songs that Wayne Shorter has recorded with Norah Jones? (I already know that Norah Jones has been blasted on this forum.)
  7. Thefts at record store

    Have you already seen this video?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2e0Fb7qFYmU Loss Prevention specialists converge in coastal Ventura, California where wily shoplifters are wreaking havoc at a legendary record store. And if you think their crimes are outrageous, just wait until you hear their excuses!
  8. I would like to hear how they recorded El Condor Pasa, probably the most famous Andean song. You may have heard the song in the Simon and Garfunkel album Bridge over Troubled Water. But please do not think that Paul Simon wrote the music - the music was composed by Daniel Alomias Robles.
  9. Santana IV

    Original Santana band reborn in Las Vegas http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2016/03/21/original-santana-band-reborn-las-vegas/82098122/
  10. Keith Emerson RIP

    I know many people hated ELP (and Carl Palmer has been trashed many times on jazz forums) - nevertheless, RIP Keith Emerson http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-35787187
  11. Santana IV

    Santana should've invited vocalist Greg Walker - I am assuming that Walker can still sing like he did 35-40 years ago.
  12. Santana IV

    I'm still waiting for the 10 CD boxset of live Santana from 1970 through 1974
  13. Erik Satie

    Has anyone had a chance to listen to the new Erik Satie boxset, Tout Satie? Any comments? http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?pid=9994288&style=music

  15. Sonny Sharrock: Ask the Ages

    Maybe I should point out that I am referring to the guitar playing or guitar solos. I do not mean that Sharrock's band included timbales or that they performed anything that sounded like Black Magic Woman, etc.
