  1. Happy Birthday, Sonny Simmons.

    I know its here, but in a strange way, I don't want to ruin the experience, but then again, if this is the only way I can listen to it....
  2. Happy Birthday, Sonny Simmons.

    Never heard it, is it worth the cd wait? A stupid question to some, but I'm entirely out of the vinyl market.
  3. Kraftwerk

    Go.
  4. Kraftwerk

    I think there's some Kraftwerk fans here, but they are coming here to Cleveland May 29th. Think their tour is stopping at other major cities like Detroit and Chicago. We will be at the Cleveland show!
  5. Happy Birthday, Sonny Simmons.

    Totally. So happy I jumped on Burning Spirits, promo used! But come on, Bartz, Shaw, Contemporary, in that really interesting period, period? Neglected! And I mean that part of Contemporary, not the Peppers, Hawes, or the Manns ( and I like that later period where Mann was getting freer (Kessel, Tal too.) Deserves reissues!
  6. Happy Birthday, Sonny Simmons.

    This dude is heavy, and anytime I see one of his records, I jump on it, besides the ESP's, I have a weird one on some weird label. Don't understand why he's not in Don Ellis or Albert Ayler's world, he should be.
  7. Kraftwerk

    I get what you mean, I love 311, and after seeing their live show several times, their show doesn't change much either. HOWEVER, this is my first time seeing this band, but it'll probably be my last too.
  8. Clifford Brown

    Don't know this dude; has Hermansader done anything else? I like this though, it kinda reminds me of the Partridge family birds in a way, something that Contemporary Records were doing with their Hampton Hawes jackets.
  9. Clifford Brown

    Guess it doesn't explain the "bird" cover, which is awesome!
  10. Hats off to Rafa!

    Now we in Winby, nothing seems straight, and this is Its been a pleasure to talk tennis on this forum; and largely I agree with everything being said here. Now how about this potential match: Rafa v. Joker. Thoughts.
  11. Where is Jazz Most at Home?

    Billiard Room (drops the microphone)
  12. Clark Terry

    Yup.
  13. This is almost as rare, Golden Number is worth seeking out, if you can find a copy.
  14. Complete Miles Davis - 70CD + DVD

    Would like it, but anything after his "retirement" are not of interest, which is why I sat on this set, probably too long.
  15. Clifford Brown

    Yeah, me too, but the "Birds" cover is my favorite.
  16. That almost convinced me of an episode I saw on Mars on the show "What on Earth?" on the Science channel.
  17. Listening again to this fine disk right now as I type this. To add about the artwork, it doesn't bother me either at all (it has the Reid Miles/Patrick Roques approach.) Yeah, flimsy packaging (you get the feel of the RVG sampler packaging way back in 1999 feel) but I'm happy to have it in a whatever official release format. Its hard bop and glad to shelve it among many other great Blakey dates I have.
  18. Just played this last night for the first time, and yes, this is fine music indeed, and if it was released around when it was recorded, I believe it would've shelved in between what was recorded before and since equally as fine. A very fine and enjoyable date, and more Hank!
  19. Improved It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

    I'm diggin' it and probably will buy it, but I grew up with this stuff, so I have a soft spot for it. I like Guaraldi and Peanuts anyway (my wife has a crush on Snoopy.) Charlie Brown Christmas is my go-to holiday album, this will probably turn into my only Halloween album.
  20. Clifford Brown

    And seemingly, by three different graphic artists! Besides Reid Miles above, I can't see/determine (print too tiny) who designed the other two jackets.
  21. Clifford Brown

    Love those album covers. Wish they were issued like that in the US.
  22. Best Three Sounds Album

    Easy for me too. Yes, Happy Frame of Mind is indeed a small masterpiece (maybe larger.) Anytime Parlan teamed with the Turrentine brothers (or anywhere they appeared together) was always a winner for me, On the Spur of the Moment being an example. I can understand sentiments towards Parlan's piano trios, but Us Three, I still do like it very much.
  23. Ornette's Tenure At Contemporary

    Why two albums? How Atlantic got in there?
  24. Best Three Sounds Album

    Three Sounds on BN are like The Jazz Crusaders were for PJ [(in my opinion) and I already know, gross over generalizations] were just meant to be entertaining party music. I happen to like the (PJ) Jazz Crusaders, but they are what they are. JC, no particular favorites, but happen to like the Festival albums best. Three Sounds, I can't think of one favorite, but all entertaining enough.
  25. Patio livin' and got some 311 and Sugar Ray happening. LOVE RUSH.
