  1. Milt Buckner - Rockin' Again featuring Thornell Schwartz...
  2. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    at least, you have easy access to the Utrecht record fair... looked for CDs (and not only LPs) there this November for the first time - some pretty amazing deals (Randy Weston Select for 15, Don Wilkerson BN twofer for 5 and more that I forgot...)
  3. Budd Johnson

    I had the same actually, one of the few jazz records in our household when I was a kid was John Coltrane's Kulu Se Mama which also had pictures of other Impulse albums on the inner sleeve... the name Yusef Lateef among these definitely raised my curiosity
  4. Upcoming Uptown Records releases

    some pages now have what looks like a listing of the participating bands (unfortunately still without the match from line-ups to tracks) https://www.hmv.co.jp/artist_Dodo-Marmarosa_000000000042587/item_On-The-Coast-1945-1947-1952-2CD_9425588 BOYD RAEBURN ALL-STARS: RAY LINN (TPT) BRITT WOODMAN (TBN) ELI 'LUCKY' THOMPSON (TS) DODO MARMAROSA (PNO) HARRY BABASIN (B) JACKIE MILLS (DR) VIVIEN GARRY TRIO: VIVIEN GARRY (B) ARV GARRISON (GTR) WINI BEATTY (PNO) LUCKY THOMPSON QUARTET: LUCKY THOMPSON (TS) DODO MARMAROSA (PNO) HARRY BABASIN (B) JACKIE MILLS (DR) DODO MARMAROSA (SOLO PIANO): DODO MARMAROSA (PNO) DODO MARMAROSA QUARTET: LUCKY THOMPSON (TS) DODO MARMAROSA (PNO) RAY BROWN (B) JACKIE MILLS (DR) DODO MARMAROSA TRIO: DODO MARMAROSA (PNO) BARNEY KESSEL (GTR) GENE ENGLUND (B) LUCKY THOMPSON QUARTET: LUCKY THOMPSON (TS) DODO MARMAROSA (PNO) RED CALLENDER (B) JACKIE MILLS (DR) MISS DANNA ACC.

  5. Nathen Page Plays Pretty For The People
  6. Same here, fascinating material, thanks for the link!
  7. "South African Jazz"

    like most of the Matsuli catalogue, these are also on spotify... the Molelekwa album is very much of it's time (late 90s) but definitely interesting... tragic life story...
  8. around the time of Peace Treaty, I wrote some emails with the owner... memory fades a bit, but pretty sure it's the same guy who now does Sam Records, and that he mentioned he would not do CDs again... talking CDs and Nathan Davis, I got the recent reissue of pianist Scott Bradford's Rock Slides this weekend and thoroughly enjoy it... it's a little bit on the heavily produced side but definitely a fun record with strong contributions from Nathan Davis...
  9. I found this 2013 article about both the reissue label and Strata pretty interesting... played some of these planned but unreleased Strata albums on Spotify yesterday (Ron English, Sam Sanders) and really liked them... surprised that this program didn't get more discussion here until now...
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    on spotify... the reed section is pretty good on paper (Danny Turner and Charles Davis), the trumpet section is insane on paper (Blue Mitchell, Howard McGhee, Eddie Preston, Dizzy Reece)... otherwise it's what you would expect from the cover...
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Philly Joe Jones - Round Midnight live 1969 with Dizzy Reece, Bent Jaedig, Larry Vuckovich, Isla Eckinger...
  12. Musical Hoaxes

    it's this one https://www.discogs.com/Jon-Eardley-Jazz-From-The-States/release/3178918 a Jon Eardley album produced in the Netherlands with a mostly Belgian band... some of the tunes are actually new interpretations/titles for old Jon Eardley compositions from 1950s prestige albums (forgot the details), the producer reused some of the song titles (but not the music) on this record here https://www.discogs.com/Walt-Lemon-Und-Rhythmusgruppe-Dreamin-Piano/master/1204392 There is also a Finnish record, this one, https://www.discogs.com/Suurorkesteri-Tanssin-Iloa-Suurorkesterin-Tahdissa/release/1395897 that combines tracks from the Eardley album with tracks from another Dutch/Belgian production https://www.discogs.com/The-St-Tropez-Jazz-Octett-Jazz-Goes-Swinging/release/2688989 I wouldn't consider these hoaxes but rather a business model that seems strange to us nowadays...
  13. this one has Serrano and Nicky Hill, it's the second album on the Serrano Freshsound twofer (the other, Serrano's Blues Holiday, has Bunky Green)... discogs also shows previous Japanese issues...
