  1. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    Which solo are you referring to? I do enjoy his intro to Song of Peace and James Spaulding on Ethos is excellent. The end of the album is stronger to me than the beginning. After a third spin the writing is still good but I'm still not clicking with his solos.

    I don't know why I thought this was one of the albums "from the vault", maybe because it was only released on cd in japan.
  3. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    I came across the cd at amoeba cheap yesterday and decided to buy it based on its praise from members here. I don’t find it that impressive either. The writing is good, woody is great, but I could see why it sat unreleased. Only spun it twice but Tyrone’s solos all sounded the same.
  4. I may be in the minority here but mailing a check is not an effort I’ll make to buy something these days. The only check written is for life insurance and it infuriates me that it can’t be paid online, but it’s a really good deal through my wife’s union.
  5. The Lost Tapes: Charles Mingus Live In Detroit

    Yeah, I've gotten in the habit of pre-ordering through Amazon. This also seems like a set that may not be on streaming services. $35 for 5 discs seems reasonable to me

    Lee Konitz - Spirits Don't know how I actually feel about this one

  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Gloria Coleman - Soul Sisters Features Leo Wright on alto, Grant Green on guitar, Gloria on Organ and Pola Roberts on drums. Nice little soul jazz set thats dirt cheap on amazon if anyone is interested.
  10. Essential Solos

    Agreed! Oliver's solo on Stolen Moments is magic. My favorite solo of all-time is Gary Bartz on Misty from There Goes The Neighborhood. It gets me excited every time I hear it. It isn't a flawless solo by any means but it has so much joy in it. His mastery of time is incredible, plus he burns forever too. Its a ride man. I think its accentuated by the Kennys more sedated solo before it. The way he returns to the theme and flies away, so beautiful.

    Red Garland - Red Garland's Piano picked the SHM-CD mono version cheap locally simply because it was an SHM-CD mono version cheap and boy am I glad I did.
  12. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    I didn't say the release was the same as the tape. i made the comment that the tape Naima had was a session tape, thus it was a recording in the order it was recorded...because it was taken with "tape rolling". The need to document when each song was recorded isn't needed because the tape don't lie. Do they give us the order of each song on the tape is a different issue.
  13. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    Documentation of the session order isn’t needed since it’s a tape of the session. Playback would give you order no?
  14. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    I certainly didn't expect much from this one, but I was pleasantly surprised by it. I've give 4 spins between work and the commute yesterday and a final listen when I got home last night. Haven't cracked the second disc yet but much more than a "one and done" for myself. The Sonny Rollins quote seems a bit excessive though haha. I wonder what Andrew White's analysis of this is. Is he considered the foremost authority on Trane's music?
