  2. John Coltrane - Blue World

    Perhaps not originally but I can see the logo on the cover. Disagree big time but I guess its different for everyone. I can't remember seeing these sessions in Coltrane discographies either by the way.
  3. 5 Original Albums (Blue Note)

    Yes you seem to take the word "original" quite serious.
  4. John Coltrane - Blue World

    Its an Impulse release, so no public domain stuff I guess.
  5. John Coltrane - Blue World

    Yup... I think there’s quite a lot more but why bring it out all at once if you can milk that cow for decades... But hey, I will definitely get this anyway.
  6. Well I don't thing it's exclusively a 'black musicians' thing, or how white people want to see black artist. People admire the sex, drugs and rock & roll thing too in the ' white rock scene. God I hope we can ever stop talking about 'races'. I can remember quite a lot people talking with much adoration about the enormous drug use by artists like Jim Morrison or Ozzy Osbourne. In the sense that: wow those guys lived a life.... Isn't it the same reason why people love mobsters and big criminals? Its a world unknown to them, tempting but way too scary. I don't know and can't say I actually care. About rap or hip-hop: there is more than gangsta rap for God's sake. Don't like Shrdlu's comment on rap. Don' t know why people always feel the need to bash genres they don't like or listen too. There is quite a lot of good hip-hop made. And a good rapper.... man that is an art form itself. It's not really my favorite genre either but I hear what they're doing. Part from that: I do think it is a particular 'class' thing to expect from people growing up in a harsh environment to sing about butterflies and flowers or to behave like a school choir boy. Music is a product of its environment most of the time.
  7. Well there used to be a jazz specialty shop in Amsterdam that went bankrupt about 10 years ago. By far your best option is: https://concerto.amsterdam/en/ Quite a big shop on the Utrechtsestraat (near Rembrandtplein) with also a large 'used and second hand' section. Lots of vinyl too these days. I would definitely skip the 'Fame' shop that is now in the Media Markt these days. It used to be the largest record store in NL but it has been moved a couple of times. It is still big but they do not have a lot jazz, and only new items which means these days they mostly sell the 50 albums on 1 cd crap from NOT NOW Jazz and those kind of labels. The Velvetmusic store is fine if you are not in to jazz: they don't really have special stuff unfortunately in the jazz genre. I must say that I do not have a lot of experience with other stores. Perhaps other board members?
  8. Wow this is a my first I attend and difficult it is. To be honest: I do not recognize any of the musicians... I like number 2. Passionate saxophone player. Sounds like someone with some southern feel in her playing like Archie Shepp. I leave the rest up to the rest.
  9. Collections

    I feel the same way. I just can’t believe people are prepared to pay 100/200 or even more dollars to obtain an original pressing or a specific reissue. Especially not when a normal prices reissue is readily available. The highest I ever paid for a record was a 100 bucks, and the only reason I did because there were no alternatives and it is one of my very favorite records. But other than that... for me it’s still music first, than audio quality, than packaging and than probably what edition... Same for me with audiophiles. I can hear a clear difference between bad and good sound and I have a personal taste. Maybe I just can’t hear it well, maybe it’s my ears , but come on: people paying 100 dollars for a so called 24k gold disc and other crap like that... it just makes me laugh.
  10. Yes I order a lot through Discogs. Most time a seller just got one item I want. I think probably 10/20% of the money I have spent on music actually went to shipping costs... 😒
  11. I don’t think shipping get much cheaper than that... prices are ridiculous. I know that shipping to the US from the Netherlands with DHL costs about 18 euros...
  12. Monk ordered some take out food.

    Probably a ‘Kapsalon’: a Dutch/Turkish specialty. Contains dönerkebab, Fries, cheese, salad and a whole lot of sauce. A normal portion contains about 1500 kcal which is about the complete amount a woman need for the whole day. But Monk was a big guy wasn’t he? I have always wondered if the Kapsalon would be introduced in the States, would there be a Kapsalon Large, Kapsalon XL and a Kapsalon supersize that contains around the 5000 kcal or something like that.... you’d been having enough for the week.
  13. Monk and Lacy

    Speaking of working duo’s: this would definitely be one. There are few musicians capable of listening to other musicians like Steve Lacy. His sound would perfectly fit. And of course as mentioned: the Monk repertoire is nothing new to the man
