  1. 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 ...)
  2. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    Mine is on the way from Barcelona ... too bad about shipping stuff around all the time, but with no stores left (or just ones that would as 35$ for such a disc and take a month or more to cater it to me), I have no other options alas.
  3. June 19 BN Japanese Reissues - uncommon titles

    Okay - for those I checked, there were no tracklists yet (or possibly "Conquistador" as a one-track disc just won't get one?)
  4. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    I'm not sure I got the whole story right, but it seems: - Uehlinger sold his entire catalogue (with some exceptions such as McPhee) to the Outhere group, which seems to try and get a foot into jazz on a broader basis (in classical, many of their releases - through labels such as alpha, Ricercar, aeon etc. - are tops, in jazz they're negligeable and will likely remain so) - he got a substantial amount of money for that (not sure who made the better deal, he or Outhere ...) - Uehlinger was not pleased by how Outhere handled its chores, there was some kind of argument (on money, but isn't that always what rows are about?), which was settled eventually (and Uehlinger put that up on his site, too, after he had published that announcement about Outhere being crooks or however he had worded it, I don't remember and didn't catch it live) - Uehlinger has started his own new label (or series still running under the Hat Hut moniker), "ezz-thetic", and one of the first releases, which was scheduled in 2017 already, still on Hat/hatOLOGY at that time, is the Giuffre Graz recording (which has made the rounds ... I think it was one of the very first ROIOs I ever got, thanks to a kind person here). The design for the new ezz-thetic releases has changed a bit, with a white frame added to the usual grey/orange design: https://hathut.com - I'm not sure who owns what exactly, as Outhere runs a promo-blurb that sounds like Uehlinger and gives no specifics about the deal or the takeover at all: https://outhere-music.com/en/labels/hathut/about - possibly Outhere owns the recordings and is somehow allowed to still release them under the name Hat Hut, but Uehlinger still owns that name? On his site, there's this: "Hat Hut Records Ltd. established 1975, still owned by Werner X. Uehlinger restarts independently introducing the series „ezz-thetics“ in honoring the exceptional LP of George Russell and the great soli of Eric Dolphy on it." - which indeed doesn't help a bit in understanding what's going on. - Either way, it does seem that not like FMP which was just shut down, without anyone being allowed to market the great legacy of recordings (what a shame!), there's still some light ... I still have a faint hope of seeing the missing half of Braxton's Willisau set being reissued, eventually ... Plus, I do wonder wtf this is supposed to be:
  5. June 19 BN Japanese Reissues - uncommon titles

    fotofuckit still exists? and allow you to up stuff without you having to pay 300$ a year or what? either way, very cool ads, thanks for sharing! -- btw, the Conn of the Dodo Green (I like it, but it took me a few rounds) has plenty of bonus material, the CT has a long first take in its RVG guise, too - will these be included in this new series? Anyone knows?
  6. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    Sorry, misread @jazzbo ... but still missed the info on that bonus track (got one each of the Shorters and Larry Youngs in the LT series)
  7. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    A shame indeed!
  8. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    Thanks, that had escaped me! Got some of those expanded SHM reissues, but none by Mobley.
  9. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    So that's a bonus track that was not on the Conn CD?
  10. But forced sale to the *other* party (the one that got the other half of the cake) is a bit ridiculous (MPS was sold to Edel, a German label much smaller - that's more like it ... but you merikins like it big ).
  11. Ok, thanks! I knew that (MPS is a case as well), but was unaware Roulette was part of the divestment.
  12. They had a 50% share in Mosaic if I remember correctly? Also I think Universal (not Warner) owns the Roulette catalogue? (Most of EMI's classical holdings went with Warner, most of the jazz with Universal.)
  13. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    I saw Frith in the living room of a friend, about two years ago, in duo with Hans Koch - that was amazing! Had to buy their Intakt disc after that but still haven't listened to it thoroughly ...
  14. Charles Mingus, The Complete Town Hall Concert

    so Mingus stole Coles' trumpet, thinking he was dead and he could sell it later on?
  15. Used to be that a 5-10 minute wait would omit posts being merged ... no intervening posts needed. If that's the case now, that's relatively new.
  16. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Regarding recent Intakt releases, I'm not looking forward that much to explore the two latest subscription discs I'm afraid (Yves Theiler Trio and Aki Takase sol), but I bought this one by Fred Frith with a variety of collaborators, reviews were most favourable, looking forward to checking it out: http://www.intaktrec.ch/320-a.htm
  17. The notification using the @-sign didn't work - it only works if/when you pick the username from the list that will load while typing (for some reasons, that list will not always load). It's convenient in cases where you don't have a post to quote (or don't want to quote).
  18. I understand ... and will myself not dump the "Original Vogue Masters" and "Jazz in Paris" CDs either (no originals, alas), partly because for the large band material I didn't even consider getting the Fresh Sound disc, and I think the wonderful trio session with Peter Trunk that's on one of the Vogue discs is nowhere to be found on the Fresh Sound box, though I could be wrong about that. Regarding LT in Paris, there's also the phenomenal "Lord, Am I Ever Gonna Know", one of my very favourite among his Albums.
  19. You need the larger bands on a separate disc, too, if you want to dump your earlier releases (there's the small group box, a larger ensemble disc, and the live disc I mentioned, which is pretty good, though I'm not that fond of Ms Thompson's singing - she's not present on too many tunes, luckily).
  20. Yes, that Bobby Jaspar looks great indeed - haven't come around to buying it yet though.
  21. I have eventually bought it (also the single disc with live material that I didn't yet have) ... but having owned the two Vogue discs and all the Jazz in Paris, I got the Thompson set for I think about one disc's worth ... so while I think they indeed have done several very nicely presented set (Keynote, Nocturne, Shelly Manne, Shorty Rogers), they are still masters in adding some rare to the common and then having people re-buy the whole shebang to get the rarer part (which is often the same with their twofers or three-on-two sets).
