  1. Kind of weird in this situation that somebody in Finland would get his before geezers in America.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Miles Davis - Complete Sessions available again

    The Japanese version of this box set is very different design-wise, both inside and outside.
  5. Miles Davis - Complete Sessions available again

    I sold my US / European Plugged Nickel box set a few years ago when I found the Japanese box in a Disk union store somewhere in Japan. I know, the Japanese version has 1 disc less and probably does not sound as good, but it has a special meaning to me. I used to drool over it in 1990s when I was poor and could not afford one, plus I like it's design a lot better.
  6. --- and 1 hour after posting this, I've got confirmation of the order shipping.
  7. Ordered last Friday, not shipped yet. But I have confidence in Mosaic, I remember there was a problem with a disc from Andrew Hill Mosaic Select set and they sent me replacement. The replacement had the exact same issue, and they sent me still another. Which was fine. Tzadik on the other hand did not even care to answer me when I reported one of their CDs was missing a booklet.
  8. Alice Coltrane/Pharoah Sanders

    Yes, Zawinul's excellent biography makes it quite clear. Burton plays practically all percussion on WR 1st album. Airto just added few minor touches (he can be heard vocalizing somewhere, if I remember correctly.) So this unreleased thing is basically Weather Report with McCoy instead on Zawinul. :-)
  9. Aketa Disk/Deep Jazz Reality reissues

    Just dug this one out, hadn't listened to it in ages. It's fine, but not too interesting or memorable, similar to the other piano album he did in the 1980s.
  10. Lee Konitz R.I.P.

    Only time I witnessed Lee Konitz in concert he was playing in trio with Marc Johnson and Joey Baron. I feel privileged. R.I.P.
  11. Trombone/Guitar Duos?

    Yes, a nice one here. 3 tracks by Albert and Scofield.
  12. Trombone/Guitar Duos?

    Good call, similar instrumentation is this long time favourite of mine: [edit] Now, it would be cool if Lewis and Frisell did a duo session. [whew... saved ]
  13. LPs that have never made it into CD

    This John Abercrombie Trio album, thank you very much.
  14. She made some records as well. Haven't heard any of those, though.
  15. Onaje Allan Gumbs R.I.P.

    I was also listening to an album he participated on just recently. A nostalgic favourite from late 1980's when I was starting to like "jazz."
  16. Speakers for desktop computers

    I've been using Genelec speakers for decades. Fantastic monitors and the only one you'll ever ever need in this lifetime. I've got 2 rigs, one has 2x 8020 + subwoofer, another 2 x G One (the smallest and cheapest Genelec monitors).
  17. Palle Mikkelborg

    Really like this Terje Rypdal trio with Palle and Jon Christensen (rip!). There's a phenomenal audience recording from Cambridge, Massachusetts, March 1980, being shared on dimeadozen. Their studio album was awesome, as well.
  18. Frank Zappa

    I listened to snippets available at amazon and was very impressed. Now I need this. Badly.
  19. Miles Live Evil multi hybrid SACD

    I picked up the Bitches Brew 7-inch cardboard sleeve SACD used in Japan for cheap (also some others in same format: Santana Lotus and Jeff Beck Wired), probably will do the same for this.
  20. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    BTW, is this a CD-R (or "CD on demand") ? Pressed CDs are always silver (or gold), never colored, as far as I can tell. I thing Promising Music also did those MPS reissues on black CD(-R)'s.
  21. What music did you buy today?

    This arrived today. Had been looking for the Japan mini lp replica sleeve version for ages. Yes I know about the upcoming Mosaic box, but it's one of my absolute favourite albums of all time.
  22. Jeff Goldblum - I Shouldn't Be Telling You This

    I can sense the Thrill is not only Gone, it might have never been There in the first place.
  23. Jeff Goldblum - I Shouldn't Be Telling You This

    Amazon has 30 sec snippets, check it out (you can hear Miley Cyrus singing Thrill is Gone.)
  24. In my opinion the sound is fantastic for this vintage, I also listen with headphones. Fantastic stuff, Roy Haynes especially shines.
