  1. Craft is reissuing on various formats on September 16. There is also a book of Sun Ra cover art that looks interesting.
  2. 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. Pablo Records

    Mike Longo's Talk With The Spirits is a good record unlike anything else on the label.
  5. 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"
  6. 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.
  7. Contemporary Records series upcoming on Concord/Craft
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Terrific album. The Japanese CD from 2016 sounds great.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Muse UK reissues

    Soul Brother recently reissued this excellent album:
  12. I don't believe this has been on CD before.
  13. Holy cow!
  14. 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".
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. I've been billed for this set so shipping must be imminent and right on schedule.
  21. Mosaic might want to do a vinyl release for this one. On Ebay, Euclid Records was auctioning 4 of his albums, all of which were stereo copies: In 'N Out ($1,592) Inner Urge ($611), Mode For Joe ($609) and Our Thing ($1,225). Holy cow! After my original post some other Joe related auctions ended. Page One sold for $836! A mono copy of Kenny Dorham's Trompeta Toccata sold for $711. Una Mas sold for $304.
  22. Warner Japan Jazz Reissues

    For anyone interested, on April 25th Warner Japan will reissue 50 Atlantic / Vortex / Embryo Catalog titles as part of the Jazz Best Collection and all will be remastered in 24 bit. Some of these titles were previously reissued by Collectables and they can now go in the garbage where they belong (IMO). There will be a second batch of 50 on May 23rd. The highlight for me is Nat Adderley's Autobiography (first CD issue). Here is the link:
  23. According to an Instagram post by Mosaic Images the set is due in March. I wonder if it might include Basra?
