  3. Rolling Stone's Rob Sheffield heralds a "CD Revival"

    Exactly, and add to that the fact that most young people don't even store music anymore. They just stream. CDs were once a convenient medium for accessing digital music.

  4. "Rhapsody" is a particularly nice item on Disc 1 - in good sound as well. It sounds to me like he is working with "I Can't Get Started" here but moves quite far from it in a very unique and beautiful manner.

  10. High Note released some other fine live recordings of this band from the same tour, although they took a promotional liberty to headline Woody Shaw's name instead of Junior Cook.
  11. Charles Brackeen RIP

    RIP. It is getting to the point that I dread looking at the Organissimo board in the morning. So many deaths.
  12. Hello.   I have Mp3s for five of the Croscrane J.R. Monterose releases:

    Just Friends, My Old Flame, Jazz on the Quarry, Nightingale, and Buzzy.

    If you need any of those, I can upload the MP3s for you.

      Thanks John. I have all of those CDs (Jazz on the Quarry=Live at Opus 40). I don't know who has  That You Are  (Gemini 3), Top of the Falls, Gemini 6 or Central Park West (Gemini 2). I have one possible lead on them. We'll see.

      All the best/Zoot39
