  1. François Tusques' Free Jazz

    It looks like it will come in the fall: https://finderskeepersrecords.bandcamp.com/album/free-jazz
  2. Classical music bargains

    There is a sale from UK's Hyperion records on some releases starting at 2.50 pounds: http://www.hyperion-records.co.uk/o.asp?o=1054 (and other ones in 'current offers') I was thinking of getting a couple. Do you have any favorites that I should also order?
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The set for me where to hear the "Ellington sound", fantastic.
  4. Jeanne Moreau has died

    Great loss. What a way of going through life with such energy. Re-watched Elevator to the Gallows on French TV last night, still gripping.
  5. Yo La Tengo

    I like the spirit of who and what they cover and how they do it, the range is big, and they can easily change the list every night on a long tour, from "Friday I'm in love" to Black Flag and many rarities.

    Thank you for this! Just started to listen to the songs and as you said, it is extremely enjoyable.

  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Everybody is so great here! Jaki Byard is such a diverse player. Tony Williams... The fisheye cover. The song titles...
  9. Longevity of the Hank Mobley Mosaic.

    Just been offered this set as a birthday present, obviously from someone special! It will be here soon, coming from JM in Barcelona. Can't wait!
  10. Current Popularity of Jazz

    I only stream during holidays and/or for exploring new music, but always go back to a physical format when I enjoy the music. I don't have a DAC for streaming so sonic difference is huge because of that.
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Sharing the love for Jaki Byard expressed here. My 'opening' for the evening is: 1970, at the Centre culturel américain in Paris
  12. Jan DeGaetani

    I hadn't heard of Ives' songs and have loved everything I have heard from this composer so this will be great to explore.
  13. Clifford Jordan-Strata East Mosaic

    Thanks for the music clips and for reminding me that I have to get this set. James P Johnson is being processed so this will be the next one. I didn't realize there was so much diversity on this set, all behind such a legendary label.

    From the Charles Munch box. Compelling music.
