  1. Free jazz that swings

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I see recurring mentions of Ornette Coleman, one of my favorite musicians and I agree he fits the thread bill perfectly.
  2. $750 LPs Are Hot Sellers at this store.

    Nothing sounds as real as analog done right, and I wish it weren't that way. (Born in the digital generation)
  3. BBC 4 - Love Supreme show

    I enjoyed it as well, cool to hear musicians talk about what it meant to them and break it down.
  4. Opinions on Analogue Productions Prestige mono series?

    I'll have to give both the Mobleys another spin. I'm a huge fan, but in the past didn't find the two Prestige albums that inspiring.
  5. Opinions on Analogue Productions Prestige mono series?

    I bought several from the mono releases and like the sound quite a bit. I have a preference for their older 45 rpm versions which sound a bit better, but that's not a knock against the new ones. I have a bunch of original Prestige/New Jazz (the former on the older NYC and later NJ address fireworks label) and none of them play as quiet as these reissues. I'm also really happy that for the stereo releases they are releasing some material that doesn't usually get a vinyl reissue like all the Booker Ervin titles. I just wish Space Book was amongst them!
  6. It's not a tape issue. You can hear Kenny Burrell play his lick exactly one revolution ahead of whats coming next. It is very, very low in volume almost buried in the noise floor. But on high sensitivity speakers you can make it out. Since Mule is the softest song on side one that is where it's most obvious. Other than that I like the way the reissue sounds, it has really nice transient snap and dynamics. that sounds like print through on the tape. Very interesting, that makes sense. They have a photo of the master tape on their website and speaking to one of the company producers that is the one they used. I wonder if it is something that occurred recently with the tape? Ok I hear it on my copy too; never noticed it before...gee thanks for pointing it out so I can be annoyed each time I play this record now At least I can only really hear it on "mule"...now I'm curious to hear an original pressing. That's a great record; I believe my copy is a later issue. I had a stereo blue label RVG stamped pressing. It sounded good, but those blue label pressings usually have way too much surface noise for me.

  9. I'm curious what you think about Midnight Blue if you have heard an original pressing as well. I was pretty pissed to find out there is a pressing error on the Music Matters reissue, you can hear ghosting or pre-echo on the left channel, on side 1. Really annoying and obvious on Mule.
  10. Most of the discs were only played once or a handful of times, they are in excellent condition. Asking $65 including shipping within the USA.
  11. Another reduction - $55 shipped in the US.
  12. Make this $60 shipped in the US.
  13. Happy Birthday Rudy Van Gelder

    Thank you for that story Chuck, L-R-G was a good session. Any other stories about Rudy commenting on the music he recorded?
  14. Yahoo groups question

    Larry it might not be any issue on your end. I've been having some issues here and there with Yahoo Groups for a couple of years. The major error where I could only see new posts via email and my Gmail associated with a Yahoo ID blocked me from reading archived posts (telling me I didn't have a Yahoo ID), but it only happened with one particular group. It seems like Yahoo have relegated their Groups to the sideline since most people made the transition to forums. I am going to take a guess that eventually Yahoo Groups will go the way of Geocities and those decades of posts disappearing into the digital ether.
  15. Happy Birthday Rudy Van Gelder

    Back when I started listening I associated his name with a certain style of jazz that I was likely to enjoy since he was the go to engineer for certain labels. For that alone my life is infinitely richer; sort of difficult to express in words.
  16. ebay madness re: vinyl

    I was playing mine today and I noticed it has an 'ear' stamped in the dead wax; interesting finding. I usually don't see this mentioned for this album. Does yours have it?
  17. A nagging question about the death of John Coltrane

    The other thing with cirrhosis, is once you have it, even minor traumas (ie "moderate" alcohol) can cause irrecoverable damage to what was once was an enormously resilient organ. With the increased cell turnover (damage/repair cycle) there is an increased chance of cell mutation, hence carcinoma. Right, in my experience as a physician, 'stopped drinking' can mean just that. More detailed in depth questions need to be asked.
  18. Nice one, how does it sound in mono?
  19. I have a Liberty stereo (Van Gelder in dead wax) and it plays quiet through out Love And Hate. There is a whooshing sound in the lead in groove, but that goes away when the music starts. IMO the Music Matters 45 rpm sounds better; less compression and sounds more open. I would think that a Plasylite pressing without surface noise should exist? I have many that play reissue quiet.
  20. How Blue Note Transitioned From Mono to Stereo

    Also bass is usually summed to mono below a certain frequency in stereo lacquer cutting. So maybe Van Gelder had that in mind when placing the bass in the center? I agree with the author's conclusion from the comments section that from 1959 onwards I prefer the records in stereo. And I even like stereo on some of those early transitional sessions recorded in both mono and stereo.
  21. BFT 124 Signup

    I'd like to partake, download is fine. Thanks.
  22. The Simpkins' book was the first Coltrane bio I'd read. It still holds a special place for me.
  23. Classic Blue Notes on SHM-CD

    I think the TOCJ-4143 disc sounds very good
  24. Record Store Day 2014

    Didn't see this one mentioned- Sun Ra Outer Spaceways Incorporated got a reissue by ORG Music for Record Store Day. I prefer the original Black Lion artwork, but I'm happy to own a copy on vinyl.
