  1. George Mraz (1944 - 2021)

    Me too, but no relation. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sdut-1c01jmraz21636-no-headline-2009feb01-htmlstory.html
  2. Bargain Audio Equipment

    Are Klipsch speakers still any good? I'm not current, but got the impression that the name had changed hands a few times and the quality gone down a few notches.

    +1 Another rough year so far.
  4. CharlesTolliver - The Ringer

    Definitely am. In a rare spending spree, I also bought Japanese reissues of Julius Hemphill's Dogon A.D. and Stanley Cowell's Blues for the Viet Cong. Extravagant but worth it, all three are outstanding.
  5. Stanley Cowell - Brilliant Circles

    I recently picked that up, based on the excellent review by Rooster_Ties: http://www.organissimo.org/forum/index.php?/topic/86349-freedom-mini-lp-series-paul-bley-dewey-redman-dollar-brand-ted-curson/&page=5 Previously owned the Black Lion, which sounded like absolute crap, Tyrone Washington practically inaudible. I almost never do sonic upgrades, but felt it necessary for this. Speaking of which, 3 more Freedom reissues from DG just arrived today ! Charles Tolliver The Ringer, Stanley Cowell Blues for the Viet Cong and Julius Hemphill Dogon A. D. Yowzah.
  6. The It Club in LA? There are Monk and Gene Harris / Three Sounds recordings, but no others I'm aware of.
  7. These were (at least partially) recorded at the Regattabar: I think somebody recently posted the Kohlhase disc on the Listening thread.
  8. There's the memorable Tristano/Konitz recording from the Confucius Restaurant in Manhattan! Only one I know of from that venue.
  9. Noticed some Uptowns above. A number of their releases were recorded in obscure venues, for instance I don't recall seeing any others from The Flamboyan. This one's from the Lark Tavern in Albany:
  10. https://www.discogs.com/label/319067-Slugs-Saloon Counting boots: Sun Ra, Art Blakey, Rashied Ali, Charles Lloyd, Mingus.
  11. for one. I thought of chiming in with this (grew up in suburban Chi. and find the album/song title funny), but figured there'd be too many recordings at that venue. After some research, there are a whole lot!: https://www.discogs.com/label/347535-London-House-Chicago
  12. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    I think Jeff occasionally purchased via the "Offering and looking for" forum. If so, some seller might still have an old PM with his address (at that time). Long shot, though.
  13. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    First name Jeff, but that's all I know. Many years ago, I may have had USPS correspondence with him regarding some kind of bet or contest, but didn't retain anything and don't recall details.

    +1, this really hits hard. RIP and thanks for the music.
  15. Fire Music - Free Jazz Documentary

    Thanks, looking forward to the report. I checked the website, hoping for one near me (there are a couple of potential eventual sites in Mid-Hudson Valley), but only announced E. Coast screening is Friday 9/10 @ Film Forum. "More upcoming showings soon..."
