  1. Chick Corea- ANTIDOTE new album is out!

    I have to admit this is the first Chick album in a decade I wasn't crazy about when I first heard about it. I'm gonna get it at some point, just not now. The website exclusive Vigilette, Akoustic Band Live, and Japan only Trilogy 2 are great however.

  4. June 19 BN Japanese Reissues - uncommon titles

    Sebesky's thing to my ear always had musical integrity, and that music is very much a product of it's time, but still holds up. Natural Illusions is well played, polite mood music, nothing more.
  5. June 19 BN Japanese Reissues - uncommon titles

    Right. I always felt Natural Illusions was Blue Note attempting to cash in on the success of Milt Jackson's Sunflower but much more watered down. Sure, Don Sebesky's string arrangements on the latter may turn some people off, but the playing is so, so, serious and great. Even with the rhythm section of Hank Jones, Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette purely in session mode, it still sucks. At least Carter/DeJohnette shined more on CTI albums.
  6. Happy Birthday CJ Shearn!

    Thank you! Big 38
  7. Leonard Bernstein Remastered 100 CD Sony box

    Thanks Lon, just ordered. Perhaps these recordings are not the level of Living Stereo or Mercury Living Presence but I grew up on the Bernstein stuff and enjoy the vitality of them
  8. Looks tempting. Anyone have it? I have the Bernstein Original Jacket Collection and Sony Mahler cycle. Is the mastering from 2 and 3 track tapes exemplary?

  11. LF: Chick Corea Five Trios box set

    Edit: Just found a copy on Amazon and buying now.
  12. I've been looking for this one at a reasonable price (maybe $125-150) Dusty Groove just sold out (who knows what they charge) and discogs sellers are selling for the insane price of $337. Send me a PM
  13. Woody Shaw "Tokyo 1981" (Elemental Music)

    Larry is fantastic on this. The thing about James is the DI. pickup.
  14. I don't have a great system either but the odd mix and soundstage is very apparent on my Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro headphones
  15. I got this as well, excellent sound on the main set, but the mix is strange and Irv Rochlin is way down in it
