  1. Pablo Records

    Mike Longo's Talk With The Spirits is a good record unlike anything else on the label.
  2. Tyrone Washington - ROOTS!!! (first ever CD reissue)

    I saw this and others from the Perception / Today vaults announced on Dusty Groove and my first thought was that when DJ Spinna did the compliation pictured in Rooster_Ties' post above, he said the tapes were missing. I did some digging and found the source Here's the relevant passage: "they weren’t a label that I can say people really knew much about. There’s definitely a lot of mystery surrounding the label because there’s no tapes, no multi-tracks or masters. Everything on the compilation for the most part came off of records, so something happened somewhere. I don’t know if the [pressing] plant burnt down or something like that, but something happened"
  3. According to this article the next edition of the Miles Davis Bootleg Series is coming later this year and will cover the period of 1981-1985
  4. 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.
  5. Contemporary Records series upcoming on Concord/Craft
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Terrific album. The Japanese CD from 2016 sounds great.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  10. Muse UK reissues

    Soul Brother recently reissued this excellent album:
  11. Holy cow!
  12. Jazz Room Records 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".
  13. 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.
