  1. I always did months with a reed. If the fungus comes up, change it
  2. Jimmy Heath RIP

    Such sad news. Thanks for everything mr. Heath and may you Rest In Peace!
  3. Tollivers website mentions a worldwide 2020 tour with ‘Strata East’ All Stars. Anyone with some more info about dates/locations. I would drive 400 km to Köln or Düsseldorf to see this live!
  4. Mal Waldron's Mal-1

    Yeah they are pretty good
  5. Mal Waldron's Mal-1

    Yes that is very true Larry. Perhaps I should listen to Mal 1 with that perspective. But I have to say that Mal 4 and Impressions would be my Prestige picks. This I just cannot believe. Being a fan of Mal Waldron is of course a matter of taste. But if you’re not I cannot believe you’re still preferring his ‘50’s stuff above records like The Reminiscent Suite, The Call, Encounter, One Upmanship or Seagulls.
  6. Very accurate description! The version you have is quite rare and goes for quite a lot of money. But I do believe it is not the only rare thing in your collection The Japanese version on mercury is a little easier to get. Sound quality is very good.
  7. It is pretty damn good Sonny Grey is in prime form and this is of course Mal’s great period although he doesn’t get to much space. Definitely interesting and worth hearing.
  8. Mal Waldron's Mal-1

    Not bad at all but in my opinion, it isn’t that great in comparison to his ‘70’s and ‘80’s stuff. And this comes from a Mal completist. Oh yes and The Quest of course!
  9. Playing music in the car

    God I miss playing music in my car. I have lived in Purmerend for 2 years. Not really a beauty of a place but it was a 40 minute drive from my workplace in Heemskerk. I always took a stack of 5 cd’s a week in my car. A wonderful opportunity to explore and listen to music in a very busy week. I am happy to live in Heemskerk again (my birthplace) but I really miss the drives with the music.... Now, on working days, I haven’t got any time to listen to some tunes
  10. Had one bad experience too. But with most Japanese sellers it is a pleasure doing business indeed. Gave my only negative feedback I have ever given on Discogs. Waited for 6 weeks to tell me half of my order was not available. Most of the time you can see it at the feedback rates. Exception for me is madpierrot who also gets a lot of negative feedback. Indeed he does not communicate and shipping can take up to two weeks without any notice. But he really underrates the condition of his items for a very good price. And after all: that is the most important. Ella Records is my favorite by the way. By far!
  11. Not for new jazz vinyl. I do know a couple of great Japanese Discogs sellers.
  12. Mal Waldron

    Yeah got that one on vinyl. The reissue of course. The original is very rare: Dusty Groove did not lie bout that. It is definitely not essential Mal but interesting to hear his development. Just like All Alone and Ursula from this period: you can definitely live without them but if you’re a true Mal lover I would not hesitate to buy them.

    Does anyone know who Leslie Waldron is? Is it actually a person or an alias? And if that is the case: anyone recognize who it is? Can’t find anything on the web...
