  1. Geri Allen Has Died

    Really sucks.............. huge loss.
  2. Chris Potter

    Potter is a beast and the new album is very good, still gotta review it. He came on my radar with Dave Holland but in 2002 or so, and been a fan ever since.
  3. Roscoe's new ECM album due at the end of the month is really fantastic. I love how he uses the four trios separately and all together, especially with various people playing the AEOC's percussion instruments.
  4. Happy Birthday Chick Corea!

    HBD birthday Chick
  5. Great for Pat! Saw him Saturday night at the Beacon Theater. Great new quartet. Great for Joanne and Diane Reeves too.
  6. Drummer Mickey Roker 9/3/32-5/22/2017 - RIP

    Damn.......... I thought he passed a few years ago actually, so this was a shock. I love his playing on Lee's "Lighthouse" date and "Gene Harris Trio Plus 1" especially.
  7. Happy 80th Birthday Ron Carter.

    Happy birthday Mr. Carter!
  8. Isn't Collectables notoriously shoddy about remastering? Their remaster of Johnny Guitar Watson's "A Real Mother For Ya" was ok, but nothing compared to Shout Factory's which was so much better. Funny that this wasn't an Elektra Musician LP reissued by Wounded Bird, when they did quite a few a couple years back, but they use existing sources I think.
  9. Adam Rudolph in conversation with CJ Shearn

    Thanks Lazaro!
  10. Chick Corea "The Musician" new 3-CD live release

    Got my copy ordered............. couldn't get a promo unfortunately.
  11. Happy 77th Birthday, Herbie Hancock

    HBD Herbie. The new album he is working on is with the Flying Lotus crew, so I would imagine it's heavily electronics focused which should be very interesting.
  12. So I'm thinking about buying a new tv.

    I have a Samsung KU6300 4K UHD TV. Really nice, I mainly watch boxing, mixed martial arts, kickboxing, and Japanese animation on it, concert and anime blu ray's look particularly good, but some well mastered DVD's still hold up as well.
  13. Looks great............. but I have the 2009 remaster which sounds really nice. It was my mom's. I'm not getting the deluxe edition
  14. Really sad to hear. Hope he can get sober. For the past 20+ years he's been one of my favorites, when I first heard him when I was 13 or 14 years old.
  15. Still better than "Closer to the Source"! Leo Parker back there on "Let the Sunshine In"? IDK bop licks over that groove and progression is just corny
