  1. The Rivers is a great set, but three out of four albums have been released in improved sound on SHM-CD at the time of Blue Note's 75th anniversary. From memory, the first album as contained in this set does not sound all that different from the 24bit Connoisseur. The book contains mostly reproductions of the original liner notes.
  2. Wayne Shorter - Emanon

    Now also on offer at JPC and Amazon as an import. No sign of a domestic release yet, I think.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Yes, like you said, great performance and sound is better than comments on the original Steeple Chase CD release would have you believe.

    Clifford Jordan Quartet Half Note (THCD-520) Steeple Chase 45th Anniversary 24bit remaster
  5. Yes, just drums, piano, and bass on L'Interrogatoire de Julien (5:17).
  6. That's why I waited for Criterion to release their DVD in 2006 before even listening to it. On the other hand, this new edition sounds so handsome, both with (disc 1) and without (disc 2) reverb, that the images won't be missed. The booklet also contains many excellent photos, two essays (Franck Bergerot & Ashley Kahn), a glossy cover, 58 pages in all, so if you are already familiar with the movie, the new packaging will do just fine as a substitute imo.

  9. John Scofield Combo 66

    According to one Italian site this will be released on Blue Note.
  10. Probably. It's the kind of music you can pick up at the local record store at your convenience.
  11. I bought the Criterion DVD twelve years ago as I wanted to experience the music as a soundtrack first. It also had a bonus feature on the music. I only picked this up as a Japanese SHM-CD recently, and the new French CD is much better. I never heard the previous EU and US releases, but I honestly cannot imagine them sounding better. The Japanese CD has now been demoted to beer coaster, but one of Super High Material.
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I was not as enamoured with this as last week on arrival.

    John Coltrane Sun Ship (SHM-CD, UCCI-9204) The real deal!
  14. Wayne Shorter - Emanon

    Ah! Wayne's Emanon: ... Monday brings the most expansive sounds yet with the North American debut of his newest work “Emanon.” The Detroit Jazz Festival Orchestra joins Shorter, who happens to be a lifelong science fiction fan, to perform this suite, which is also the score for a graphic novel by award-winning comic book artist Randy DuBurke (The Moon Ring and Malcolm X: A Graphic Biography).
  15. Wayne Shorter - Emanon

    And wasn't Emanon supposed to be a new composition for orchestra and quartet? So where is it?
  16. High blood pressure!

    I'm sorry to hear this, Scott. Get well soon.

  19. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Disc 1 fourth time today. This French release sounds f-ing great.
  20. OK, so I picked up a copy at the local record store today. This is a real classy reissue. The booklet is glossy paper, so very firm and durable. Beautiful packaging. The sound is great so far (first disc now). It was mastered by François Lê Xuân who is also responsible for the recent stellar French Centennial Edition of Thelonious Monk's Piano Solo, Paris 1954.
  21. Steve Coleman Corner

    Your post made me reconsider the Steve Coleman Label Bleu studio albums. I ordered a sealed, mint copy of On the Rising of the 64 Paths through Discogs this morning. Cost me €16.50.
