  1. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    this is the most "blue note sounding" prestige date ive heard....the OJC lp issue i just got (sealed) sounds fine
  2. Lee Morgan Film

    i agree, the entire film should of been wayne shorter telling lee morgan stories.
  3. Lee Morgan Film

    it would of been wrong to of just stand up and give the pre-concert lecture, before my screening, right
  4. is 50s Discovery records the same as 80s Discovery

    it was expensive for a cd but it was kind of worth it- it actually won a grammy. i dont know anything about manhattan transfer but i suppose what ive been missing out w/ them i am gaining back via this cd. Clare exclusively plays yamaha digital piano + organ on this.
  5. Wes Montgomery/Wynton Kelly - "Smokin' in Seattle" (Resonance Records)

    this does look extra-good
  6. is 50s Discovery records the same as 80s Discovery

    @Big Beat Steve be careful, i didnt mean for my thread to have you take 78s out....
  7. "Mingus Three" pianists

    im paring down, curating my collection more and this one just got the ax, i just couldn't find a situation where i'd listen to it over a Hampton Hawes trio date on contemporary. im sorry dog!
  8. Hank Mobley In Holland

    i was suprised how 2 of the tapes just turned up in the archives, like just recently donated. thats so great.
  9. Hank Mobley In Holland

    Who has it, check in. i like how its divided into 3 parts. right now im fully focusing on part one part one: hank tv b'cast audio part two: hank + orchestra part three: hank set in club
  10. Hank Mobley In Holland

    amyone have luck w/ amazon, i just placed an order w/ amazon directly....a cheaper one on "ferndalejazz" amazon seller but amazon question box has been not working for me all day and it doesnt say if they are even in the US or not.....but amazon many times delivers by courier and not usps so they dont have access to the mailbox which makes it hard to receive.

    its amazing dog- he was the 1st black chemist in america. he started the first doctoral program in chemistry at a h.b.c.u, howard. he got a gugenhiem and went to labs in denmark and switzerland, and was chair at cal state northridge, in the 70s and 80s. it really goes to show u the average joe wasnt buying kenny dorham blue notes. this guy was obviously a total genius, i wonder if he jammed k.d. in the lab?

    the UA kenny dorham afro cuban is way better than expected. i was so right in holding off for this one. i thought the music matters was the wrong play for this session, i thought the UA would have more "charm" to it. As a bonus, my copy was owned by a famous back scientist! PHD in chemistry, Dr. Lloyd N. Ferguson- proud to have his copy!

    i overlooked this, eg i forgot it existed. but out of all his lps its the one that really speaks to me. essential.
  14. Candido

    i saw the man himself, it blew my mind. dont let that cover deceive you, hes the rick wakeman of congas- his signature sound was not 1, not 2, but he pioneered the use of a 3-conga setup if u like the debut this is the other one of the abc paramounts thats the best.....some get orchestrated with selections like 'the peanut vendor' (remember abc paramount) but this one is also straight up
  15. so they cut the entire budget, is that correct? what is happening with this
