  1. Rarest "classic" BN in CD Era?

  2. Rarest "classic" BN in CD Era?

    My favourite Jimmy Smith Cover! It has nothing to do with Frank Wolff or Reid Miles. It is from Akiyoshi Miyashita.

    It is not a CD
  4. Rarest "classic" BN in CD Era?

    In 2006, all four titles were bonustracks of the classic album "Softly As A summer Breeze" In 2014, only one track "Ain't No Use" was part of Blue Note: Uncompromising Expression - The Singles Collection
  5. Vic Dickenson on Blue Note

    Blue Note: The SP Days 1939-1952 (TOCJ 5231-5238, Japan, 1990)
  6. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    If you want to pay: In 2014, Cuscuna wrote new liner-notes:"That session was plagued by some problems with the audio an with Lee Morgan's lip. Only three of the six tunes were worthy of release ..."

    You need a chat with Ravi Coltrane. In 2018, he told a german newspaper: Naimas family has unissued tapes, and his mother Alice has unissued tapes, too. There is more to come. (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, June 28, 2018).
  8. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    I can't believe Horace Silver was proud of "Total Response". Blue Note should have rejected this complete session. They did not! I did buy it, and it annoys the heck out of me. Alas, no chance for Silver to destroy the tapes.
  9. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    Hoping for the "recently discoverd" last Blue Note Session from Jackie MacLean with Woody Shaw, Tyrone Washington an Bobby Hutcherson from July 5, 1968. I really can't believe that every track of the session is so bad that it must stay in the vaults for all eternity.
  10. 2019: Blue Note's 80th Anniversary

    Seven were chosen: Art Blakey: Drums Around The Corner Lou Donaldson: Man With A Horn Grant Green: Blues For Lou Bobby Hutcherson: The Kicker Dizzy Reece: Comin' On Jimmy Smith: Six Views Of The Blues Various Artists: The Lost Sessions
  11. But this volume does not move forward into color photography. The musicians remember Lion screaming at Wolff "Stop! You are clicking on my record" Has anyone ever heard a "click" on an Blue Note session ?
  12. The book ist out, I hold it in my hands. It's very expensive, but o.k.
  13. Best and worst sounding RVG Blue Note CD

    Best: Lonnie Smith: Think!
  14. New - Grant Green - Sunday Mornin’ LP reissue

    "Legendary recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder is like a 5th member is this session capturing the instruments, the air, the vibe of the studio, the stereo soundstage (unusual in those days) just perfectly. Upon hearing the Sunday Mornin’ analog tapes used for cutting this release, mastering engineer Kevin Gray gleefully proclaimed, “Rudy’s sound doesn’t get any better than this, it really doesn’t”! I can't believe the high praise, hearing the 25 years old japanese Blue Note Works TOCJ 4099 edition. You can hear a falling bottle in the studio in "God Bless The Child" after 5:36 minutes. Did they correct that ?
  15. New - Grant Green - Sunday Mornin’ LP reissue

    Is there still the bottle in "God Bless The Child" (5:36) ?
  16. Late 60's Early 70's Blue Note Lesser Known Gems

    Wayne Shorter, Lou Donaldson, Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, Bobby Hutcherson, Horace Silver, Jackie McLean, Andrew Hill, Elvin Jones, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Turrentine, Ornette Coleman, McCoy Tyner, Gene Harris, Donald Byrd, Grant Green - they are all Blue Note family, Alfred Lion/Francis Wolff family. After Alfred Lion left Blue Note in july 1967, Blue Note indeed hits a new note. Try Eddie Gale - Ghetto Music Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra - Consummation Jimmy McGriff - Electric Funk Ronnie Foster - Two headed freap Marlena Shaw - Who is this bitch, anyway? Moacir Santos - Saudate Alphone Mouzon - Mind transplant Ronnie Laws - Fever Eddie Henderson - Heritage Earl Klugh - Living inside your love and, of course Bobbi Humphrey - Blacks and Blues They have nothing to do with Alfred Lion. The Worm by Jimmy McGriff is not really a Blue Note record, it was released on the Solid State label.

    Waiting and hoping for Ashley Kahns "Somthin' Else". It's about time !
  18. Blue Train (Deluxe Edition)

    Would have been Donald Byrd a better choise ? You can check this ! I have a small problem with the titel track: It sounds much like Sonny Clark's "Sonny's crib", recorded two weeks before "Blue train". Clark's sidemen were: Byrd, Coltrane, Fuller, Chambers and Art Taylor. A really great session, too. Certainly no "Blue train" without this predecessor. By the way: In 1987, they put Coltrane's record on the grave of Blue Note Records Founder Alfred Lion. It was one of his favorite sessions - along with Joe Henderson's "State of the tenor".
