  1. Keith Jarrett - Sun Bear Concerts

    Greatest piano solo music Jarrett ever produced, IMHO, and that's no small feat. Much better than the over-hyped Köln Concert. Kyoto and Sapporo are personal favorites. Genius at work. Will skip the vinyl reissue, though. I already have SACD version and am quite happy with that.
  2. RIP Chick Corea

    Another very interesting video here. Miles' Lost Quintet but Chick and Jack have switched drums and piano seats.
  3. RIP Chick Corea

    Felt I had to post some some Chick & Keith music here.
  4. Weather Report - The Columbia Albums 1976-1982

    Wayne plays on it. It can be found on youtube actually.
  5. Weather Report - The Columbia Albums 1976-1982

    I have this CD. The bonus track is called "Miroslav's Tune."
  6. Pete Cosey

    The photograph claims "onstage with Miles Davis in Japan," but surely the band with Badal Roy and Lonnie Liston Smith never toured Japan?
  7. I think of Dave Holland outfits with Steve Nelson on vibes and Robin Eubanks on trombone. Recorded extensively for ECM.
  8. CharlesTolliver - The Ringer

    I've got this CD version from 1994.
  9. Jan Hammer was a monster when in right situation. The album he did with Jerry Goodman, Like Children, is wonderful. He also plays some killer drums on it. Also those albums he did with John Abercrombie for ECM, Timeless and Night, wonderful. Robert Fripp interviewing John McLaughlin in early 80s, McLaughlin said something like "Jan's a big rock'n roll lover," must be nicest things he ever said of Hammer after Mahavishnu Mk1 broke up. I guess that he has in common with Eddie van Halen, r.i.p. big rock'n roll lover.
  10. Sound quality is quite good for this vintage, I think.
  11. Miles Cellar Door Update

    These shows were attended by Jan Garbarek.
  12. Kind of weird in this situation that somebody in Finland would get his before geezers in America.
  13. Mine arrived today. Haven't got to listen, yet. But I expect it does not disappoint. The Artist House "Live" album has been a long time favourite.
  14. Frank Zappa

    I like most Zappa from the beginning until "Zappa In New York" but those Flo and Eddie sides elude me. What's the deal here? Those guys can't sing, nor they are funny. The crazed fan who injured FZ in 1971 and forced him to change direction did world a great favour, in hindsight.
  15. Miles Davis - Complete Sessions available again

    The Japanese version of this box set is very different design-wise, both inside and outside.
