  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    No, I don't think so. The source for this is obscure, it is strange there are no videos of the other tracks, and the visual and audio quality sucks, like that of the existing videos of the performance by Les McCann & Eddie Harris from Montreux. Probably bootleg copies of Swiss TV tapes.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    That was a smokin' band Mongo had at Montreux. Only bummer is they didn't restore the percussion track for the CD issue - Saoco, a tune by Armando Peraza. (You can watch it on YouTube, search for the title.)
  3. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Disc 4 with the For Django LP - a great guitar album, but Pisano's 2nd guitar is too low in the mix.
  4. Discs 5-7 - the Groove Yard session and the encounters with Shearing and Milt Jackson.
  5. I have encountered the same problems. What makes things worse is that the replacement cases you can buy are made from thinner plastic than those the manufacturing plants use. I once bought a set of five empty 4-CD boxes and broke three right away when opening them for the first time. It's become hard to get decent replacement cases.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This the Groove Hut reissue with all fifteen tracks recorded at those sessions in 1964. Nice Onzy Matthews charts on some tracks, great guitar by Ray Crawford. This is just as good as any other 1960's Groove Holmes recording.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Before that: Yesterday in the car and at home, and this morning for breakfast, it was a string of Carmen McRae discs, most of them with Brubeck involved:
  8. Herbie Hancock Live 2017

    Thanks - I looked at his website for other dates, but they're all too far from where I live. He tours Europe again in November. When he was here in July I was on vacation on the other end of the country. https://www.herbiehancock.com/tour/
  9. Herbie Hancock Live 2017

    In case he takes this band over the pond, I'll go - if it's not too expensive. Always been a big fan or Herbie - great to hear he's kind of remembering the progressive side of his career. The tickets for Diana Krall in September are too costly for my budget (and I don't like the acoustics of the venue).
  10. Same here - she always posted substantial and personal contributions. My thoughts are with her.
  11. Sexiest album covers
