  1. Yesterday, I saw the great Abdullah Ibrahim yesterday in Leuven. It was.... just stunning. 82 years old and still going strong. Playing solo piano, practically all of his amazing compositions past in an 1,5 hour improvisation. Small concert hall, 200 listeners, no microphone, just Mr. Ibrahim and the piano. So incredibly intimate and beautiful. After 1.5 hour of improvisation the man stood up and made a few deep bows. What a beautiful person! What an experience.
  2. MPS Reissues - More Box Sets from Universal

    I can see the pictures... I’ll keep hope then...
  3. MPS Reissues - More Box Sets from Universal

    MPS is celebrating their 50th birthday. Does anyone know of they are going to reissue some stuff on cd? Or will it be streaming only? i would die for a reissue of this one:
  4. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    I really think it is a pity that so much Blue Note is out of print these days. I am 27 years old. That means that I didn’t have much time to collect al those Blue Notes. Sure I got plenty but I am still looking for a lot of Grant Green, Lee Morgan, Andrew Hill etc. Nowadays my only option is Discogs which is ok but the shipping costs are ridiculous a lot of the time. I still hope for some nice reissues.
  5. Charlie Rouse redux

    I love Rouse. I also never really understood the disdain for Monks quartet and for Rouse. Favourite Rouse: With the fantastic Rouses Point. Don’t really know the rest of the band all that well but they are all great. favourite Rouse as a sideman: Playing together with Woody Shaw... it doesn’t get much better than that.
  6. No of course not another A Love Supreme but still: what a great record. The classic quartet in top form. This is insanely good music. I love the Originals and of course One Down, One Up. I also think Slow Blues is the least interesting one. very thankful for this release! Got all of his studio and live work as a leader. But to be honest I will never have got enough Trane.
  7. Alan Braufman "Valley of Search" Reissue

    Wish you had distributed a whole lot more Chuck, haha. Have been looking for cd reissues by Chico, Murray, Bluiett and Anthony Davis for a long while now. Very rare Unfortanatly. Same goes for a label like Strata East for exemple.
  8. Chet Baker.

    To me the ultimate Chet is: I love these Barclay sessions. It got such an indescribable atmosphere. It feels actually like Paris in 1955. Not that I would know how that feels, but as I would imagine of course. Also a change to hear the great Dick Twardzick who would die the same year. I have never liked the boxed set of these sessions as it contains way to many alternates, false starts, studio chatter and farts by Chet (or Dick, who would know). But these Barclay discs still got played very often. Prefect music for the depressing autumn like weather these days in Holland.
  9. harold in the land of jazz OJC screwup?

    Sounds very strange indeed. It is also on the YouTube version.
  10. Does anyone know whats happening out there with the jazzmessengers website? Anyone who recently ordered something? I havent recieved an order confirmation or any e-mail at all. They dont respond to my sent e-mails either. On the order page my order is standing on pago acceptado for 4 days now, everything I ordered was in stock but nothing has been shipped yet. Very strange.
  11. Christmas Jazz

    My favorite one:
  12. Roswell Rudd (1935-2017)

    Rest in peace mr. Rudd. I have always loved your work, especially with Archie Shepp. Wonderful trombonist and a wonderful man. This was my summer vacation soundtrack when I visited Tibet and Mongolia last summer.
