  1. Andrew White (1942-2020)

    He did play bass on on this 1971 album (as did Wrecking Crew great Joe Osborne, don't know who played on what). Referred to as Andrew "Muff" White, whatever that was all about.
  2. Andrew White (1942-2020)

    Anyone have any leads on where to get that Elvin Jones CD with White and Ari Brown at a reasonable price?
  3. Jimi Hendrix - Live in Maui

    It's amazingly good, and surprisingly diverse. I was on the fence for months, but made the jump and have no regrets.
  4. Jimi Hendrix - Live in Maui

    I've also had it on pre-order from ImportCD's for a while.
  5. Glad to see the Dave Holland on the 2000's and the Maria Schneider on the 2010's. I own 3 total from those two decades, as opposed to owning all 10 of the 70's selections.
  6. Sun Ra Arkestra - Swirling

    Nice article about this album in the Sunday Philadelphia Inquirer.
  7. PM sent on 01612-65073-2 Walton, Cedar/Eastern Rebellion Mosaic $4
  8. Archie Shepp

    Agreed. Saw Harris twice in the 70's, once with Shepp, and once with George Adams/Hannibal Peterson, and he was a monster!
  9. PM sent on Jazz CHR 70009 Adderley Quintet, Nat Good Company $4
  10. Alice Coltrane/Pharoah Sanders

    Correct, with Reggie Workman and Roy Haynes. I love it!
  11. Andrew White (1942-2020)

    Yes, I responded and bought some of those albums based on the Cadence ads. Think I got them at Third Street Jazz, don't fully remember at this point. He was featured on Tyner's "Asante" album also.
  12. Me too, may be my favorite Shepp of all!
  13. Somehow I don't agree with the readers' assessment that Pat Metheny was the greatest jazz musician of the 1980-1999 period. I have a couple of the albums on those lists, but none I really care much if I ever hear again. And I feel bad for those who missed Joe Henderson's 1970's work on Milestone, and think his 90's work on Verve is all that. And when Bob James/David Sanborn makes a "10 best of the decade" list, well, that's a different reality than where I live.
  14. Can someone give links for the other decades? I only see readers polls, thx. FWIW, I own all 10 of the albums for the 70's, as I'm sure many here do.
  15. And "New Africa" and "Bakai", the two most meaningful cuts by a mile, came out as bonus cuts on the original "The Way Ahead" CD. Also, this album can be had as a domestic twofer along with the interesting "For Losers".
  16. I agree, the 70's European records are my first-call Griff. As for the Jazz Times list, 10 is a really small number of albums. Some excellent music on there, but I would think the Return to Forever is the only one that might make my list, and I'm not sure if it would. Just thinking out loud, pick a Tyner, a Tolliver, a Hannibal Peterson, a Billy Harper, Elvin Jones's Lighthouse, one of the European Archie Shepp's, a Max Roach with Harper, Mahavishnu's "Inner Mounting Flame",one of the Clifford Jordan/Cedar Walton albums or the Eastern Rebellion one with George Coleman, Woody Shaw's "Berliner Jazztage" and I'm at 10 already. And that's just off the top of my head, no research. I'm sure there are probably lots more.
  17. Special Prosecutor and enabled NY DA coming soon to a nation near you.
  18. Michael Cosmic Reissue finally here

    Up a bit from the $24.99 price it was listed at. Bet the seller is having a happy day!
  19. John Mayall First Generation 1965-74 **35 CD Set** Coming

    Understand your point in general, but as for Clapton, he had already been with the Yardbirds, and was already well-known, and Mandel had already been with Canned Heat.
  20. Love the Cyrille. That's a good Griffin, but he made a lot of outstanding albums in the decade, and I would have probably gone for one of the live ones with longer cuts.
  21. John Mayall First Generation 1965-74 **35 CD Set** Coming

    Would love to have it for the previously unreleased concerts, but way too expensive for my tastes, and I have all the albums up to about 1971 already. Maybe I'll find a bargain on it someday.
  22. Apologies if this was mentioned elsewhere. No Business is an interesting and trustworthy reissue label.
