  1. Has anyone heard this new offering from BE trio recorded in '76 in Madison,Wisconsin ?
  2. Ciao Lon,

    I saw that you ordered the new Hank Mobley from Jazz Messengers.I used to order from them monthly for years-great store ! I visited them in Madrid.

    I was wondering if you've received it,how is it and how is the sound?

    Thanks Lon,  Jeff

      Just saw this, only shows up on my profile page, and noticed it because for some reason it shows up on rooster tie's phone when he looks at the board and he's seeing things that look like private messages to him. Interesting!

      No Jeff, haven't received this from Jazz Messengers, usually takes more time than has passed since the shipping date, probably will be a week or so more before I have it. There are favorable reviews of the release though on the thread about the release, and most seem to say that the sound is quite good on two of the three sessions, and okay on the third.

  3. XRCD Blue Notes, where are the new titles ?

    Thanks Kevin, I have always enjoyed your posts.
  4. Great article ! I had the pleasure of hosting Ray Brown' s group at a local Italian Jazz festival maybe 12 years ago. Besides enjoying a great show and dining with the band (sitting across from Ray and next to Hank Jones),I acted as translator for Ray for an Italian jazz magazine writer. The writer asked several questions along the lines "Miles Davis continued to innovate his sound his entire career but your bass playing has remained in the same style, why"? Mr. Brown didn't take too kindly to this line of questioning and was visibly perturbed. He said to me "Jeff , this guy better get some new questions or this interview will be over fast". I said Ray don't shoot me I'm just the messenger." Rest assure I gave theoblivious writer the lowdown but the interview was pretty brief ! Don't mess with Mr. Brown ! Great article !

  5. XRCD Blue Notes, where are the new titles ?

    Yes I did. They list the same titles (S. Turrentine, L. Donalson) that have been available for pre order for what seems like 6 months or more.
  6. What happened to XRCDs from Elusive disc ? They haven't released anything new for awhile. I have about ten of these titles and all are excellent ! Please Elusive disc get it together. Three cheers (or more) for Alan Yoshida's mastering = EXCELLENCE !!

  10. Hello board members, Am going to Japan (Tokyo/Kyoto) in mid-April.Can anyone give me some tips on good venues for live Jazz as well as Jazz music stores (cds) new and used? Thanks much, Jeff
  11. Jeffsjazz here. I must agree with several posters.This cd is simply fantastic and a concept cd that hits it out of the park. By far her best recording ! "Too young to go Steady", gives me goose bumps.Listen to it on a nice valve system to get that warmth ! Absolutely gorgeous !
  12. New OLD Monk,Brubeck and DEX- anyone know these ?

    Not to ruffle anyone's feathers but why are clickable links frowned upon?

  15. Smallish Stereo Speakers with Decent Sound

    I bought a pair of LS3/5 clone design,or actually based on them on ebay UK several years ago,for $300 (used) and sound fantastic ! AVI Neutron 5 speakers- assembled in Britain. Check them out,you won't be disappointed. My second system,much like your needs,are filled by a pair of Epos (also English). I can't remember the model but they don't make them anymore but other models are available-great value.I paid $150 used in pristine condition. Hope that helps.
