  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Reissue of two Decca LPs. This originally cheap Spanish issue now goes for high prices - I was lucky to find a low price offer. Nice, but not as impressive as I thought it would be. Larkins is the congenial accompanist and perhaps shines the most in that role.
  2. The Rivers set is a must for anyone interested in his playing. But perhaps you should set the price a tad lower.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Perfect music for what is going to be the hottest day of the year, so far .... and to my ears, Jobim's finest US album. That a German wrote the beautiful arrangements with perfect empathy is one of the few things that make me feel fine with being of this nation.
  4. Same here - just last week I noticed another second hand store has vanished. Back to topic - your discussion watered my mouth. I'll buy the new edition.
  5. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    I enjoy this set, but frankly, can understand that the first session in the set was not released at the time. Some of Tommy Turrentine's and Horace Parlan's playing on Comin' Your Way sounds a bit strange, harmonically, to my ears. Jubilee Shout is great (had the Blue Note twofer LP for a while and liked it back then); Another Story is nice but not overwhelming. Wanted to have that for Thad Jones. Looking forward to the rest.
  6. Les Génies du Jazz box set

    Got them through customs without problems?
  7. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Very nice - and a good example that you play what you see and hear in the music. This makes audible just how much late 18th cenrury "classical" composers owe to early 18th century Italian music.
  8. The postman delivered the Mosaic Turrentine a moment ago - took four weeks at the lowest shipping rate. Customs were collected at the door, invoice was attached, they had opened tha package to check its contents, which is routine - nothing damaged. All is well ...
  9. ! There are so many jazz greats whose music I love on the list it is hard to make a choice for the HOF ...
  10. Jazz Messengers takes sets from their website when they are out of stock and put them up again as soon as the new batch has arrived.
