  1. In the booklet for this Select, Richard Seidel mentioned that Mosaic hoped to reissue an expanded edition of Live at the Trident. Shame it never came to fruition.
  2. Contemporary Records series upcoming on Concord/Craft

  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Terrific album. The Japanese CD from 2016 sounds great.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I've had this album for years and I'll pull it out every now and then to see if my opinion has changed. Nope, still kinda boring.
  5. Kenton Presents Mosaic

    I found this box set today at a local store for $50 Canadian ($40 USD) and all 4 CDs were still sealed. I noticed that the the lid and bottom box are attached via the spine. Is that how Mosaic used to do their boxes? Every box I have from them (beginning with Elvin Jones #195) the lid comes off entirely.

  7. Muse UK reissues

    Soul Brother recently reissued this excellent album: https://www.dustygroove.com/item/981531?label=131015&incl_oos=1&incl_cs=1&format=cd&new_status=new&sort_order=artist

  9. Jazz Room Records

    https://jazzroomrecords.bandcamp.com This label has been reissuing some interesting stuff on vinyl and they've teamed up with a Japanese label called Mocloud / Ultra-Vybe for the CDs. So far only the Hugo Heredia (which features Horace Parlan) and the Robin Jones Seven have been released as CDs but hopefully the Khan Jamal will come out on CD as well because it's fantastic! I did a quick scan of their Instagram and future releases planned include Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble "Le Le", Hal Singer Jazz Quartet "Soweto to Harlem", Tata Vasquez & His Orchestra "Ecstasy" and John Patton "Soul Connection".
  10. Blue Note Tone Poet Series to continue in 2020...

    The back cover of Passing Ships contains this "analog remix by Malcolm Addey...". Kevin Gray did the LP Mastering.
  11. Blue Note Tone Poet Series to continue in 2020...

    I have the Passing Ships CD which sounds great and I wasn't desperate for a new edition but I picked up the Tone Poet because it's my favourite Andrew Hill album. I'm not an audiophile or vinyl fetishist but the vinyl does sound really good to me.
  12. Blue Note Tone Poet Series to continue in 2020...

    I picked up Andrew Hill's Passing Ships and Dexter Gordon's One Flight Up yesterday. Both releases are excellent.
  13. https://www.amazon.de/-/en/gp/product/B08WV71GCW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A3JWKAKR8XB7XF&psc=1 I don't believe this has been on CD before.
  14. I've been on a Gary Bartz kick lately and I'd be in for a Complete Milestone and Prestige box. The previous CD's omitted "Etoiles Des Neiges" from Follow The Medicine Man, "Du (Rain)" from Taifa, "Disjunction" from Libra and "Sifa Zote" was edited on the I've Known Rivers and Other Bodies reissue. Also, Home! has never been reissued which is crazy.
  15. I've been billed for this set so shipping must be imminent and right on schedule.
