  1. Allen Blairman (1940-2022)

    That's terrible news. Hung around and played with him in Heidelberg in the 80s. RIP.
  2. so they gave credit to ray leatherwood?
  3. Grant Green: "Iron City"

    iron city was never my favourite GG album. i only ever listened to samba de orfeu and always assumed it was larry young. the harmonic movement from 4:10 on sounds like LY. he sounds similar on the verve. but the rest doesn't sound very much like him imo. neither the organ sound nor the soloing. there is also this distinct dry voicing LY uses for soloing (i know nothing about organs) that is not present anywhere on iron city but is on all his BN records. crazy theory: LY sat in on samba, the rest is BJP.

  6. Lou Donaldson's Here 'Tis

    yeah, i wish i had it.
  7. i did not use software but noticed that sonnymoon was almost in A. but i just did run some software after reading your post. according to my software sonny's "Bb" is at 223,5 hz, a regular Bb should be 233hz. A is 220 as you know, so it is almost a semi-tone
  8. the loosdrecht is almost a semi-tone flat...
  9. For completists only....

    yeah. i think i have most of raney's recorded output including many bootlegs. same for doug. i also have almost everything roland prince ever recorded, again including many bootlegs. i got most of grant green's recordings including the unissued KD and quebec, complete session reels from his BN sessions, etc. i got most of wes montgomery (anyone got the unissued portions of ronnie scotts?) and probably one of the largest pat martino collections out there, including the unreleased vanguard album and tons of live recordings from the 60s until 2018.

  12. Art Blakey 3/8/59 Unreleased Blue Note Sess

    -running blue note records in 1959 is not the same as curating the historic cataloge in 2019. if a jazz messenger session didn't work out in 1959, no problem, just schedule another session. we do not have that luxury. and why would it be worth a sigh if someone wants to listen beyond the official? i thought that was normal, lol. -of course there is no "right" to hear everything, who claimed that? is there some sort of "moral" obligation not to let historically important works of art rot in a basement until they burn one day? maybe? in other art forms it is rather common to donate pieces of art to a museum. is it so laughable that a 1959 jazz messenger recording might be dotated to some institute? or BN records opening their own historic website, podcast, youtube channel or whatever?

    i'm sure you're trying to be condescending but i'm appearently even to thick for that.
  14. Art Blakey 3/8/59 Unreleased Blue Note Sess

    grant isn't good on standards either. on the whole, the trio session is much worse than the quebec imo. so i dont really buy the aesthetic angle there. and does it have to be good to be released? is there no historic value to the recordings of the best in their field? i understand if it*s not released because of money. but surely there are no reputations at stake?
