  1. Paul Chambers

    Fascinating stories. He certainly does bear a resemblance to Paul.
  2. Sonny Rollins Recommendations?

    Yes! There are pure nuggets of gold on even the most critically derided Rollins albums.
  3. Rega P1 and P2 turntables

    I have a P1 and am happy with it. I didn't see the P2 as being significantly better enough to justify the difference in price.
  4. Favorite ECM Records of the 21st Century

    I'm a big fan of Wolfgang Muthspiel's Where the River Goes and Barre Phillips' End to End.
  5. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    Wow, there's an amazing range of material there. There's even a mention of our own Allen Lowe.
  6. happy Birthday JSngry

    Happy Birthday!
  7. Black Unity Trio – Al-Fatihah

    I did. Really happy with this release. But yes, pressing plants put out variable quality.
  8. Pete Cosey

    Cosey joined the band in April, so most likely that month. It may be from the Howard University concert.
  9. Derek Bailey

    I don't have any of the Honest Jon's reissues, but Aida, Dart Drug and Cyro are great ones. Not sure if they've reissued them yet, but Figuring with Barre Philips and Village Life with Louis Moholo and Thebe Lipere are great, too. Epiphany/Epiphanies is my favourite of the Company albums, though I don't like how it's now been split across different albums with different speeds. Fortunately, I have the CD and homefromtheforest's old LP.
  10. Diane di Prima 1935-2020

    RIP. She was a great poet.
  11. Blue Note Tone Poet Series to continue in 2020...

    I stopped buying after the Black Fire fiasco, but I understand most of these sound good.
  12. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I actually love the trippy cover on the Barefield LP, but the music is great too.
  13. Vinny Golia

    I saw Golia live with Bobby Bradford, Ken Filiano and Alex Cline and it was every bit of good as you could imagine! I have several of his records on vinyl, which I haven't spun in ages, but they are all good, particularly the trio date ...In the Right Order ... He's a nice illustrator, too--he did the cover to the Dave Holland/Barre Phillips ECM LP.
  14. Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder

    It's crazy how much the vinyl goes for on this one considering how many were pressed back in the 1960s. I have an original mono with lovely punchy sound. Music Matters reissued it a few years back and it sounds OK, but not as vibrant as the original or even the RVG CD. You are probably in safe hands with a King or Liberty era pressing.
