  1. Thanks for sharing your first impressions @mjazzg Excited about this! Hope I get it in time to give it a first spin before my vacation (starting the day after ascension).
  2. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    Thanks for the correction/addition -- so generally, FMP never owned the recordings, but kind of licensed them from the musicians? Alas I'm not that person with that surplus change ... too bad the Trumpster isn't a free jazz fan, as that would be a terrific deal, greatest deal of all times
  3. Franz Koglmann reissues on Black Monk

    previously partly available on this CD: Not sure I need more than that -- maybe I do ...
  4. It's a one-man affair, and I guess Bertrand got some orders after sending out the info - I ordered/paid right after and was hoping for a faster reply, but never mind, I'm excited about this, no matter when exactly it will arrive!
  5. NEA Jazz Masters - 2020

    Maybe read before you write, just once in a while? Not every woman involved with jazz is a singer (and the rest aren't all pianists or harpists) -- from the NY Times link: Ms. Kirk was already working to support jazz music before the death of her husband, the famed saxophonist Rahsaan Roland Kirk, in 1977. But after he died, she recommitted herself. Ms. Kirk became just the third person hired at WBGO 88.3 FM, the only full-time jazz station in the New York region, and has worked there for over 40 years. She has also helped organize and program concerts across the city.
  6. First spin last night ... on the Subway material (some 100 minutes, the best track is on disc two and almost half an hour long), Gordon is supremely relaxed (though the Brazilian vibe indeed is not for him). The mix is odd, but at the same time very clear. The bonus sessions are about 25 minutes each, and I found "Round Midnight" with George Grunz on piano quite possibly the highlight of the entire set. I wouldn't consider it essential, given that there are around seven gazillions of Dexter Gordon recordings from the seventies, but as one who never had access to sanely priced Steeplechase releases and doesn't own any of the live ones, I guess it's a worthy adition for sure. And for anyone really into LTD, I bet it is, anyway!
  7. Which one? DarkTree itself includes free shipping - globally, it seems. So I don't really see any need for a broker/intermediary.
  8. John Coltrane - 1963: New Directions (3 CDs)

    Old people seem to prefer to take it with them rather than keep the fire burning ... Well, *some* old peopleat least. Some old folks live on a hill, too.

  10. Coincidentally, my copy of that was in the mail and just went into the player for the first time when the mail from Bertrand arrived ... IUCC is wonderful! And with Bertrand being as scrupulous in choosing material as he is, I'm certain the new one will be, too!
  11. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    I know ... but 125 for that CT box, for just a DL? Does it at least include high quality scans of the book? (I guess I'm really old-fashioned in that respect ...)
