  1. So far, this thread has been respectful without being inappropriately generous. I agree to everything that has been said. Christiern was kind and generous in the brief interactions we've had, now quite a few years ago. Not everything he posted here was polite or in the best interest of our host Jim Alfredson, but he certainly enriched this place. RIP.
  2. Ravi Coltrane signs with Blue Note

    I traded Remembrance away very early in my record collecting days because I did not find it interesting then. A mistake? I seem to recall a faceless guitarist.
  3. Branford slams Miles

    But unless one subscribes to the idea that all of the jazz sales are purely the result of marketing and manipulation, it still appears that people liked the music, based on the relative success of these "young men" at the time. There is really no way of knowing, but I wonder if Dewey would have sold as well as Joshua if he had gotten the contract.
  4. Forum Secure?

    I am not sure that I understand your point. There is no "EU interference" other than that there is a regulation requiring companies to be very upfront with what they do with your personal data, and ask for your consent for the use of data for certain purposes and/or data types (like sensitive data). Tumblr's implementation of these requirements is not particularly user-friendly. Others have succeeded better.
  5. Best approximation for the first occurrence is Esus13, but the later two are more convoluted.
  6. Songs You don't want requested

    Not that it answers the question, but some pop songs, even using the original harmonies, are terrific to improvise on. An example: Up, Up and Away. It has quite a few chords, BTW.
  7. I've been playing Herbie Hancock's tune 'Tell Me a Bedtime Story' a number of times through the years and I think I have all the chords right with the exception of one. It's in the bar right before the 5/4 section (just after the loveliest phrase ever on alto flute). It sounds as if it's an E in the bass, but I can't really hear the chord. Any suggestions? It's in 1:14, 2:46 and 3:52.
  8. Very, very sad. So sorry to hear this.
  9. Forum Secure?

    Assuming you mean the Mosaic Records Daily Jazz Gazette, it is published on the blogging platform Tumblr. It is Tumblr that has introduced the consent page which you may have perceived as a "blocking page". The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) may have its flaws, but I find it easy to sympathize with the general objective of forcing companies who process personal data to be more transparent. Basically, the GDPR applies to all companies, not only inside the EU, but - much to the dismay of many non-EU entities - also to companies outside the EU if they are marketing products towards EU citizens. It is because of the GDPR that Tumblr has introduced the aforementioned page to meet the requirement to enable all individuals to opt out from most processing of personal data that is not required to deliver a specific product or required by law. However, this opt-out requirement is badly implemented by Tumblr, as it is very difficult to manage these privacy settings. A few clicks down the line, you are presented with a list of hundreds of "partners", for which you may enable or disable the right to direct customized ads to you, based on your behavior while on Tumblr. But it turns out that the right for some "foundational partners", like Google, Amazon, Facebook etc to use your personal data cannot easily be managed or disabled. You need to visit each platform separately to take control of their use of data regarding your Tumblr preferences. That's when I chose to opt out of using Tumblr altogether (and so, I can't read the Gazette). So this is all about Tumblr (which Mosaic Records have chosen as supplier of the blog platform) trying hard to appear to follow the GDPR, while in fact they want to make it hard for you to exercise your rights as a data subject.
  10. Forum Secure?

    I assume the warning comes from the fact that the forum is run on a http, rather than a https, website. What do you mean by that the EU has "blocked" Mosaic's jazz blog? Which blog is this?
  11. June 19 BN Japanese Reissues - uncommon titles

    Like I've said before: get 'Total Eclipse' if you don't have it already - all five musicians are at their best. It's such a great line-up. I also like the Elvin album; certainly one of his Blue Notes I return to the most. Good to hear Jan Hammer in this context.
  12. Rouse and Clark

    Maybe because someone else borrowed his copy, and he can't recall the title?
  13. From a Billboard article from 2009, it seems Caiman holdings went bankrupt. https://books.google.se/books?id=S5qHDcGdQDEC&pg=PT5&lpg=PT5&dq=Caiman+building+a+mystery&source=bl&ots=RMwdk9x94y&sig=ACfU3U3XhJglFKjlstZE5nWsA1sUNiqbiA&hl=sv&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi46cPetKjhAhXkwYsKHc5gB7wQ6AEwDnoECAMQAQ#v=onepage&q=Caiman%20building%20a%20mystery&f=false
  14. BLUE NOTE - The 80 Works Japanese Reissue Series

    I asked in another thread, but that post maybe was not read by people who know: do these feature the same masterings as the SHM series?
  15. Mosaic is a business, yes, but it is also a labor of love. Do we sometimes need to pay that back by being loving customers and not just part of the "market"? I'm not sure, but it's something I've been thinking of. And I am too not sure I will get that new Mobley set because I have what I want already.
