  2. Taylor Eigsti - Lucky To Be Me

    I think Taylor Eigsti's a prodigy of sorts, and has released at least a couple of prior albums. I saw/heard him live about a year ago. Definitely "real jazz", had a lot of technique, but didn't swing very much or consistently IMO.

    Got the (7/12) order one day late. This isn't too unusual, as I'm in a rural area and the Fedex guy doesn't seem to like the back roads. Fortunately, since the package was big, he came to the house rather than leaving it at a friendly shop in town. Wow. I'm going to be quiet for a while. At least until the second order arrives...

    I'm on the East Coast. For six days, "departed Sacramento" was the last entry. Only today (expected delivery date) did it change to "on truck for shipment". Unfortunately, it now shows a "Delivery Exception (customer not available or business closed)", neither of which was true.

    Ditto (another second order customer). The AMG review was lukewarm at best, but I decided to disregard it.
  6. What's next on your YourMusic.com queue?

    Johnny Griffin "A Blowing Session" A bunch of recent RVGs have turned up in the "New Arrivals" section, eg Silver, Blakey, Mobley, Morgan, Hill (more than one of each). My queue just got longer.
  7. are some OJC limited editions going oop?

    I ordered the evening of July 12 (close to midnight Eastern time). No shipment confirmation yet. Will phone tomorrow. I suspect you will hear something tomorrow anyway. I received my shipping confirm this afternoon for an order placed at about 9:30 p.m. on July 12. They seem to be getting there -- albeit slowly. Finally! Got the shipping confirm today, as you predicted. All 32 items were shipped. [Yes, I now know that 34 would've given me free shipping, but I didn't know at the time. And Concord didn't answer my "may I augment the order?" e-mail. ]

  9. If You Are MF Broke, Stay Away From This Thread

    True. But in light of the apparently overwhelming response to this sale, I wouldn't be surprised if the next sale went out at somewhat higher price points...
  10. Carmell Jones Select. This is the first Mosaic I've bought. Love it. I see how these could become habit-forming.
  11. I would have been interested in the Jazztet Mosaic, but blew the next couple of months' CD budget on the Concord Blow-Out Sale.
  12. are some OJC limited editions going oop?

    Ditto. I asked if I could add 2 discs, to get over $100. Missed the opportunity to call.
  13. are some OJC limited editions going oop?

    How much do you have to order to get free shipping? If it's 40 or 50 CDs, I won't be upset, having been charged $15 on an order of 32 . But if it's "free shipping on orders of $100 or more", I'll e-mail Concord and try to amend the order to add two more discs... [Added: it is free shipping on orders of $100 or more. So I'm going to try and amend.]
  14. are some OJC limited editions going oop?

    I don't know--I just ordered and ordered. Email confirmation also says free shipping. Wow. I just ordered 32 discs @$2.98 and $15 Fedex was the only shipping option. Maybe there's another crossover point at 40 CDs. I'm gonna have to sell off some of my classical discs to fund this purchase...
  15. What's next on your YourMusic.com queue?

    I just got e-mail stating that it shipped. So you have a good chance of getting filled this month.
  16. jimmy rainey trio w/ sonny clark on Xanadu- 1954 recordings

    Besides the Clark/Raney "Together", a handful of other Xanadu discs have been showing up, in quantity, at low prices on eBay and Amazon Marketplace (maybe also at the source the OP referred to?). I noticed Dolo Coker "California Hard" and Dexter Gordon "True Blue".
  17. Sorry, I meant Barry Harris's "Bull's Eye" in the above post. "Luminescence" (same sound man) isn't as bad, although the piano's sound is severely lacking.
  18. If RVG is a must, I second "A Fickle Sonance". I have a number of remastered Prestige/OJC CDs with Richard Alderson as original recording engineer. Alderson's always good for crappy sound, though I suspect the problems stem from the original recordings rather than the remasters. That said, Barry Harris's "Luminescence" CD sounds really horrible, especially the trio selections (much as I like Harris, I find the CD almost unlistenable). Many other Alderson efforts could be cited, the piano suffering out of proportion to the other instruments.
