  1. Unedited clip here:
  2. I am a bit uncertain whether 1961 is the correct year for the Brew Moore Steeplechase album. 1962 would seem more probable, but maybe there is evidence? I didn't think Niels-Henning played on TV as early as 1961.
  3. Kevin Gray interview

    The "problem" with the Sweet Honey Bee master tape is that it is lost.
  4. Borje Fredriksson

    Yes, I believe the 1963 date is correct. Fredriksson was sounding a bit "edgier" already in 1965. Link to previous thread:

    Warming Up is on Spotify. The cover says "Vanguard Digital Vault". The copyright note says "(c) (p) 2006 Vanguard Records, a Welk Music Group Company".
  6. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Same! It's in a GRP box from 1996, "Music Forever and Beyond". It was recorded at Van Gelders, but is not listed in any discography that I've seen. Allegedly, the session was unsuccessful because Getz was drunk. He sounds a bit lost at times, but it's exciting to hear the different rhythm section. In the early 2000s, there was talk about a potential 'Sweet Rain' reissue that would include some of this material (or potentially other unreleased tracks). According to what I heard, the Getz estate blocked it. There is a thread on that somewhere here.

    Well put. This album resonates with me in a way I cannot really explain. Even though I was born in the 70s, it feels like a slightly nostalgic flashback to the 1960s, as if I had memories from that time. Now I'm listening to Joni Mitchell's 'Court and Spark', on a 1974 pressing (Discogs lists many pressings from that year alone, so it must have sold really well). Tom Scott usually does not get much attention over here, but his arrangements for this album work so well. He's not credited except for a couple of tracks, but it surely sounds like his voicings all over. I don't listen to him as a jazz saxophonist, but he's done really good work as a soundtrack composer and arranger, and really has a personal touch. Edit: BTW, HutchFan, have you heard the only track that has been released from a failed first attempt at this album, with Roy Haynes and Steve Swallow? There was a take of Windows on a Chick Corea retrospective box.

    I am not a big Getz fan, but cannot help liking the bossa nova stuff. But I also like 'Sweet Rain'. Super-quiet Japanese vinyl: All of the other players make this album especially enjoyable for me; Chick Corea, Ron Carter and Grady Tate. In the light of another recent thread on Getz, this statement in the liner notes does not come off too well: "Whatever Stan Wants Stan Getz".

    Isaac Stern/Mstislav Rostropovich, Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. Not the best vinyl (late 70s) but I am drawn in by the playing. I was just supposed to check whether cleaning the LP made it sound better, but now I cannot really turn it off.

    Herbie Hancock 'Flood', Japanese 1975 original. A bit of a nostalgia trip for me; I listened to this album a lot at age 20.

    But I guess they are still personal, as nobody else sounds remotely the same. I have not followed him in later years. Did he become more "mainstream" as the years went by? Now playing a bit of an oddity, the first Revelation album; a mono copy of Dennis Budimir's 'Alone Together', mainly consisting of Budimir overdubbing himself on acoustic guitar. The production is a bit idiosyncratic. During the first track a telephone can be heard ringing several times in the background. Note the comments under "Technical Data" :

    Chick Corea 'Septet', Japanese ECM
  13. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Steve Kuhn, 'Childhood Is Forever' (BYG) Though I generally like 60s Steve Kuhn, I sometimes feel that his free-ish outbursts are sometimes a bit mannered, or at least samey. But this album has some really atmospheric and satisfying playing.
  14. 1970s: a golden age for TV show theme songs?

    Lots of good music there, but I don't have a problem with Mike Post either. I quite like the theme from Magnum P. I. The less well-known first theme by Ian Freebairn-Smith is also good (and jazzier).
