  1. Ron McMaster Retires From Capitol Mastering

    For the longest time I had thought this was Ron McMaster:
  2. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    How long have you been here? Back in the blue note bulletin board days we would froth at the mouth over the latest Connoisseur, OJC, etc. reissues. Pages would be wasted discussing them. The well has run dry, except for live dates, and anything that isn't the 100th reiteration of an album does gets people's attention. There hasn't been much to talk about that hasn't been discussed before. This is something different.
  3. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    Who's getting wound up? It's a marketing push, for sure, of an artist long dead, pilfering through what scraps of unissued material remains. That it still makes for good listening, even for a rehearsal session, says a lot about the high standards of performing everyone involved did. It's just different now. Jazz is different now.
  4. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    Never. It just shows that they performed at a high level, all the time.
  5. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    Clearly he had expectations that just was not going to be there. It's not like finding a previously undiscovered live date.
  6. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    Yes, there's nothing revealing, just hard playing and creatively executed. Even the filler is killer. Brody must have been drinking when he wrote the review. Low boil???????????? No way in hell.
  7. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    The whole group is coming out swinging. Nothing held back.
  8. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    Listening to this now. Damn, this lives up to the hype.
  9. WAMU has had a long history of initiating outstanding programs, then after many years and successful fundraising campaigns, suddenly deleting them. I stopped supporting them over twenty years ago. DC is a news and talk junkie town; unfortunately, this program and the jazz and latin and world music programs from a Pacifica station WPFW, are either being cancelled or moved to the graveyard shifts. While people can always stream in the offices and cars, I miss the concept of individually curated music radio programs -- this is how we get to listen to new music. Not any more. Now I have to dig and search for it.
  10. somethin' else (label) SHM-CD reissues

    Jackie McLean Fire & Love Junko Onishi at the Village Vanguard The Legendary Oscar Denard Any Ralph Peterson disc.
  11. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    This is the only jazz multi disc set I have purchased this year and I have been playing it non stop. Sound is excellent and the playing unbelievable.
  12. Woody Shaw "Tokyo 1981" (Elemental Music)

    Looking forward to this release.
  13. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    Scott, I prefer this kind of release over the 100th iteration of A Love Supreme. Granted, it is scraping the bottom of the barrel for material, but unless unissued broadcast performances are discovered, this is a nice surprise.
  14. Missing CD

    I've had instances where someone would buy a disc from me, and I ship it with tracking. It would travel across country, looping several times in a full circuit, before finally arriving at the proper destination three states away from me.
  15. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    The SHM Japan reissue series of the past few years have been really affordable and have the best sound quality of all. They could just cut and paste those for the US pressings.
