  1. Great Finds

    Nice! Have had many great finds there. Funniest story. I was at my favorite Half Price a few years ago, and noticed a copy of Miles (Blue Haze) on Prestige on their display wall, and once I asked to see it, it was a Fantasy reissue LP that they were asking for (bar code, used and all) a $100 (chuckled). So, I go through their jazz bins and find a very fine ++ (with full gloss and sharp corners, no seem splits, no ring-wear, and really despite some writing on the back (probably the owner) was excellent) of a Milt Jackson/Monk LP with the NYC address on it for $3.99 (and got it with a teachers discount;) I should really get a job there.
  2. What music did you buy today?

    To support my local record store (Record Den!) Don Ellis Orchestra LP with that crazy fraction on PJ and Joe Zawinul, The Rise and Fall of the Third Stream with Money in the Pocket as a bonus LP (Rhino). Bought my daughter the latest Def Tones record.
  3. Andrew Hill - Passing Ships

    I even like the goofy engineering, important record? As important as finding the Titanic.
  4. ORNETTE COLEMAN - ROUND TRIP: ORNETTE COLEMAN ON BLUE NOTE

    I'd like to repost that it's not that I don't like Ornette's records less in the BN period (Love Call, NY is Now, are my favorites) and Cherry's more; what I meant to say is that Don's records were more interesting to me. Maybe Cherry's BN's I favor, instead of Ornette's outfit at the time (meaning I miss Cherry with Ornette) a lot.
  5. Best Three Sounds Album

    Sleeper. Up there with Grant Green's Am I Blue, yawn.

  7. Best Three Sounds Album

    Fair. A "best of" would do me fine. And to explain, I've owned several cd's from the period mentioned above, and one kinda sounds like another. My opinion, of course.
  8. What music did you buy today?

    Good one. Didn't even know Michael C

  10. Toshinori Kondo (1948-2020)

    Word, dude.
  11. Bob Saget - RIP

    Half Baked. Funny, funny, funny.
  12. McCoy Tyner

    Learned this much in 3 minutes. Thank you Gheorghe. I actually couldn't stop reading, and that is sincere.
  13. I like teams, I like coaches, but I didn't like Oakland nor Madden...until I watched him coached. He could eat this game like a piece of pie. Brilliant behind the scenes and a great strategist and that earns my respect. RIP sir.
  14. Contemporary Records series upcoming on Concord/Craft

    Well yes and no ( don't count on it.) Cover art is superb for it's time. Burning Spirits was it (good luck getting a copy).
  15. ORNETTE COLEMAN - ROUND TRIP: ORNETTE COLEMAN ON BLUE NOTE

    Excellent question!
  16. Drum solos, bass solos, put them at the front, middle, back of the record, I like them!
  17. Been missing Neil Peart and Rush recently, so I played 2112 for my 17 year old daughter last weekend, and she wants the record.
  18. McCoy Tyner

    Know very lit Was Jimmy or Elvin marrie3d? Who knew? Guess I still don't. Thinking the same thing. Know little about McCoy, less about Elvin, Pharoah, Rashied. Did these dudes have a personal life?
  19. Toshinori Kondo (1948-2020)

    This dude, Parker, Drake made sense. In a Iron Maiden way, this band was mind-boggling. Heavy metal jazz, and we are afforded this incredible footage of an incredible artist: new to me!
  20. Khan Jamal (1946-2022)

    Speak Easy. It's a weird looking record, almost looks like a Toto record, but this record is incredible! Signed it too, glad to have it. And his work with Shipp and Parker are keepsakes.
  21. Charles Brackeen RIP

    Yessss.
  22. Greatest Jazz Albums of All Time - Ranker

    Yup. And some great vintage footage too,
  23. Greatest Jazz Albums of All Time - Ranker

    Agree. Same here. I love Miles Smiles more than Kind of Blue; Ole Coltrane more than a Love Supreme. No Ayler, M. Brown, Shepp, Roach on that list lends credence to subjectivity. I like a lot of things too, hardly anything that will make any list: Just enjoy what hits the ears, lists won't matter afterwards.
  24. Stuff You've Found Inside of Used LPs

    Not an LP, but the cd reissue of Ornette's Crisis/a 12. I was at an Exchange location n was gonna buy it, but the cd was gone and in its place was this packet of fake nipples. I took it to the front desk and they laughed n I got to keep the empty case/inserts and the packet of fake nipples for free; my 20 yr old daughter who was with me at the time asked for the nips. Awkwardly, I gave them to her...weirdest experience ever!
  25. Lee Morgan: The Last Session

    Yup, would've made good sense for Lee to transition to these labels. They cater to artists that have the insight to transition, but on the artist's terms, at least from an outsider's point of view.
