  1. Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest

    Had one last week in Vegas. Awesome!
  2. Woody Shaw Institute

    An email I received: I hope you are doing well! Just wanted to share a few things. First off, we are extremely grateful to inform you that our new crowdfunding campaign for the forthcoming documentary, Woody Shaw: Beyond All Limits, has raised a nice $2,000 since last Thursday! If I may say so — it is precisely because of generous fans and supporters like you that I feel so certain this project will be fully-funded and completed this year. I thank you, sincerely, for continuing to support this cause. The campaign ends June 10th, 2017, so if you haven't already pledged (or you would like to pledge again! ;-), please visit Join The Woody Shaw Institute of Global Arts If you are an avid fan of Woody Shaw's music (of course you are!) and are interested in supporting his legacy for years to come, then one great way to make a pledge for the documentary is to begin your Founding Membership with The Woody Shaw Institute of Global Arts. This allows backers to support the new documentary while ensuring the ongoing preservation of Woody Shaw's music. The One-Year Founding Membership Includes: 20 Unreleased Hi-Res Woody Shaw Full-Concert Downloads 12x12 Woody Shaw Photo Print Beyond All Limits T-Shirt (Ltd. ed.) Printed Handwritten Woody Shaw Manuscript of "Beyond All Limits" (from organist Larry Young's 1965 Blue Note classic - UNITY) Private Facebook Group Access Bonus Footage, and Pre-Release Screening of the Documentary (2018) Please note that, once the documentary campaign is over, this particular membership offer may not be available again (Campaign Ends June 10, 2017). I sprung for this - could not resist the 20 unreleased concerts. Tax refund put to good use! It took a while to download and I am still converting the FLAC files. Easy, but time consuming.
  3. Bobby Hutcherson - Columbia Albums

    Yeah, I received the same notice. Planning to wait for Dusty Grovve to re-stock.
  4. Cuscuna & T-Rex

    Interesting! I presume that is the MTV VJ - J.J. Jackson?
  5. Cuscuna & T-Rex

    So I was listening to a CD copy of "Electric Warrior" by T-Rex. It is a bonus track version issued in 2003. I was prepared to hit eject then heard Cuscuna introduce himself as he begins the interview with Marc Bolan. Interesting to hear him in this context. Candid, intelligent two-way exchange. Not sure if it can be streamed anywhere.
  6. Apple Music/Spotify/Tidal

    True, although I would argue it is slightly better than Spotify. My primary MO is to play music downloaded to my iphone. So a plus for Apple Music (versus Spotify) because both sets of music exist in the same app.
  7. What Are You Watching

    Yep, glad it is back
  8. I am Stonewall15 who wrote the question regarding plastic hard case covers for Savoy CDs.

    Are you a Savoy CD collector, as I am?

    Perhaps we could communicate.

  9. hard plastic mini-lp covers

    Yeah, this has been an "unmet want" of mine so long that I forgot about it. Would love to hear of a source.
  10. Criss Cross New Releases

    Thanks for the update! I buy everything Sipiagin puts out.
  11. ???

    I've looked for updates for several years, but found nothing. Can't seem to find a (current) thing about him on the web.
  12. Bobby Hutcherson - Columbia Albums

    I discovered Highway One on vinyl a few years ago. I enjoyed it and it struck me as being in a similar vein as his later BN records. Pretty sure Un Poco Loco was out on CD at one point. It has John Abercrombie on guitar IIRC.
  14. Nice CJ! Was it really 30 years ago? Have it spinning right now. Sounds like an old friend.
  15. Upcoming Uptown Records releases
