Excellent!

  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Thanks for the recommendation - I will check this out. I heard Jovino Santos live in Hermeto Pascoal's group many years ago and he was great!
  5. Groups whose sums are less than the parts

    I found the session Ike Quebec recorded for Blue Note with Duke Pearson and the Israel Crosby - Vernel Fournier team disappointing. Nice, but somewhat uninspired. Three tracks can be heard on this CD - most of what is heard fits the decription in the thread title.
  6. Bobby Few (1935-2021)

    That was his recording debut! R.I.P.
  7. Importing/exporting UK/Europe after Brexit

    Current delays of goods from the UK may be Covid related as well, due to the new variant. It doubles the trouble.
  8. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    This will be at th center of my box set listening activities during the next weeks:
  9. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Debut recording of a pianist we will definitely hear from in years to come. Very expressive playing, the instrument's dynamics by far surpass that of a modern piano. It is anonymous, built ca. 1785, a type known to all four composers, in perfect shape, and possibly built by Friedrici from Gera, who was C.P.E. Bach's favourite builder.
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The day over: The Pepper is a 1986 Japan CD, which sounds great. I wish all Blue Notes were recorded that way ....
  11. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    Ordered on Sunday, delivered on Tuesday! it was on my doorstep when I returned home. Compared only two tracks, but the sound on the box set seems to be a bit more detailed and have more space between the horns. But I will keep at least some of the CDs -those with the first three sessions into recording order.
  12. Gil Evans & Ten

    The name is an anagram for guess who?

  14. Eugene Wright, RIP.

    Great bass player with abig, warm sound, not just with Brubeck. I have several Cal Tjader albums with him, like this: Duncan Reid gave me a copy of the CD Wright had signed for him ....
  15. My last three Mosaic sets: Young/Basie, Savory, and, tonight, Mobley.
  16. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Excellent! One of three fantastic Haydn discs I purchased this year (the others by Pierre Gallon and Rebecca Maurer). Like Gallon, Corti makes the Italian influence audible.
  17. The last batch a few days ago, on New Years's eve, was this:
  18. A truly seasonal thread ..... Just finished this one, picked up after reading about it in the Xmas Jazz recomendations thread: That's where I got a pointer at this one, too: The late Jon Hendricks sings on a few tunes here.
  19. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    Jazz Messengers has it back it stock: https://www.jazzmessengers.com/en/81688/hank-mobley/the-complete-blue-note-sessions-1963-70 I gave in and ordered one, can afford it right now.
