  1. tl;dr version:

    CD1 is '55 and 58' (previously released as "Newport '58")

    CD 2 is '66 and '67

    CD 3 is '69 (all previousle released on "Bitches Brew Live"), '73 and '75

    CD 4 is entirely '71

    Well, strange move. I guess "Newport", as well as "Fillmore" is a better key word to sell a product than "Miles Live from 19xx"

    Obviously adding cuts from "Bitches Brew Live" (which is a must for a Davis maniac, and so as the bootleg series) is a very, very uncool move.

    As well as shrinking the '75 sets from a 2CD material to just one short track.... anybody remember disappointment with the great Montreux DVD boxes with only one track from the 70s? (possibly the weakest one).

    Of course the '71 set is fine, as well as the Berlin 1973, although a well known gig.

    I'm curious what they're waiting for with "unleashing the vaults"? For all older fans becoming old and deaf :D? Why no more complete sessions boxes (all OOP), why no big live collections? This "Newport" key really makes me thing they want to target as many jazz fans as possible, vast Miles fans horde is not enough.

    ....and why no more video from 1969-1973 period?

    There's a lot of excellent pro-shot stuff recorded by European TV and it would be great ufficialize some of these concerts....for example the beautiful Oslo concert (Chateau Neuf,November 9,1971)


  2. I have many of the original Blue Note CD issues done by Ron McMaster in the 80's, these CDs were made by transferring the one step analog master (two track analog tape) to digital.

    To my ears many of them sound better than the RVG editions and 24bit TOCJ.

    Can anyone confirm this?


  3. These three albums are Just what you expect...Very relaxed swingin' jazz piano trio,a classy collection of standards,blues-oriented and bop tunes of the age.

    Not jazz milestones or indispensable albums but a great add to any Blue Note collection..

    If i'm Not wrong both "Here we come" and "Hey There" have never been reissued outside of Japan,

    ...definitely all the three titles are Worth of purchasing for me.


  4. Is the Jack Wilson SHM-CD remaster of "Something Personal" a transfer from the 1990s remix? Or the original 1966 stereo mix?

    Nothing is written in english for this matter and I do not have the remix. However, I can say that I am very impressed by the interplay in the session. And Charles Williams' bass solos at Coleman's "The Sphinx" are a wonder (I was not prepared to listen to such sound in a BN record). If this CD had not been mentioned earlier in this thread, I would not have purchased it. Thanks!

    I believe this is Buster Williams under an alias ......

    I agree....born as Charles "Buster" Williams


  5. This is my opinion..and i'm speaking for myself....

    but i wonder..finally, is it more important the MUSIC or maybe the technical data?

    I really don't care if these upcoming reissues are SHM-CD or what else...

    For me...the real focus is the music, so welcome these new BN reissues..

    .....but i'm speaking for myself :Nod::Nod::Nod:


  6. I live in Italy, i'm involved in music in a way or another and i can personally confirm that at least two smalls but very active italian labels have contacted the family

    to discuss and make a CD reissue program but the answer was Always negative...and apparently it's not a matter of money.

    it's just..they seem not to be interested in the Whole thing..to sell the music rights and to have access to the catalog masters.

    Only a few titles have been illegally reissued (??)..actually someone in Spain has just rip a good vinyl copy and put it out on CD and that's a shame!!!

    If we take a look at this Amazing catalog we can only hope that before or after the Sinesio legacy open his eyes and donate his music to us.... :Nod:

  7. The entire HORO Records label would need a real serious and organic CD Reissue program...

    Founded in Italy in 1972 by the now defunct (2009) producer and filmaker Aldo Sinesio, The HORO Records is one of the most prestigious italian jazz label

    In its series we find more than 70 titles documenting some of the best jazz recorded in the 70's....

    Just to begin...if i could choose one/two or more titles...i love these..i have both on vinyl and they sound really great!!!!!
