  1. Duke Pearson - when did he leave Blue Note?

    Thanks, that was a nice read!
  2. I've been a big fan of your previous work here for many years now (are there other sites I'm missing?) and thus really looking forward to this!
  3. well, according to what I read, Mutter continued the concert after the incident so nobody except for that one person was robbed of their $130, plus: people paid for seeing a diva so what did they expect, plus: I read elsewhere that the person was making a film recording, not just audio, which is something I tend to find distracting as a listener as well, this sea of phones in front of you, all preparing crappy films of the concert... I won't blame anybody for discouraging that type of behavior
  4. looks like you can get pretty close in there...
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Eustis Guillemet Jr on drums? ... never heard of him but apparently he was a marching band bass drummer turned bass player as I just read in this fascinating interview
  6. Duke Pearson - when did he leave Blue Note?

    The latest BN production credit I can easily find is Saudade by Moacir Santos, recorded in March 1974 (There are other production credits from around that time, e.g., Moto Grosso Feio and Asante, but these were from albums that were recorded quite a bit earlier)
  7. yes, and also Rene Urtreger "Tentatives" (Minium) from 2006
  8. Not much to add, but: Michael Attias - Credo Julian Lage - Arclight Paul Motian - On Broadway Vol 5 John Zorn - Mount Analogue I've lived longer in this century than in the previous one, but even in my collection the majority of newish jazz is from the 90s
  9. For CDs and new stuff I agree re Concerto. For used vinyl, I tried out many shops a year ago. My favorite was Waxwell (Gasthuismolensteeg 8), followed by City Records (Geldersekade 100A). If you come to Rotterdam, don't miss vinylspot, and in the Hague don't miss the Jazz Center...
  10. Bought partly due to your constant endorsement... thanks!
  11. Ann Burton - Ballads & Burton glad I finally picked this up after seeing it so often in stores... I am not a big fan of vocal jazz normally but this one really works for me
  12. So your item FR-656 is distinct from the popsike (link above) SFR-656 which is called "Wheels Car's And Chicks" with "Summertime" and "These Foolish Things" on the A side....?
  13. The article linked to here (in connection with another rare Hank de Mano item) here's the link (Billboard from 1966) mentions a single version of Shadow of Your Smile by the Freeway Quartet (w personnell that matches the Flying Flugelhorn album, Irv Craig/Rochlin etc) as the label's first release. This suggests that your single predates that album but not by much. What is the catalogue number of your record? And yes, it certainly is pretty rare....

    it's definitely on the lightweight side, but for me it works almost perfectly... (what I also learned yesterday and really wouldn't have expected is that the cover photograph is by the legendary Chargesheimer, a contemporary of the musicians in late 60s Cologne)
  15. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    for a while about 15 years ago, Osby had A LOT of material like this as free downloads on his homepage, don't think I still have that, but it was a great band...
