  1. Gimme some Pi (Recordings)

    Nor I. I tried to pick up the Sam Rivers and the first Threadgill release. Inputting "Twitter" into the discount code box did not work.

    Is this one as good as everyone says????
  3. Ambrose Akinmusire

    His release before the latest one -- A Rift in Decorum -- is a very nice double album recorded live at the Village Vanguard. Lots of good playing on that one.

    I saw Code Girl -- the band is named Code Girl -- at this year's Vision Festival with Adam O'Farrill substituting for Akinmusire. It was not entirely my cup of tea, but I liked much of what I heard.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Yes. This one is severely, severely, underrated. I view the Dorham/Henderson releases as co-leader albums. This is the best of them IMHO. Pepper Adams was apparently also a fan. He uses three tunes from In 'n Out on:

    Thanks JSngry! Here is another video from that concert. Sam Rivers the multi-instrumentalist is great, but Sam Rivers on tenor only is one of my favorite things. Sam Rivers, tenor sax Darryl Thompson (Lucky's son), guitar Rael Wesley Grant, electric bass Steve McCraven, drums

    One of the Champion recordings.
  9. JJ Johnson Mosaic

    Thanks for the rapid response. It is a great set.
  10. JJ Johnson Mosaic

    I slept on the J.J. Johnson Mosaic. I downloaded it from a friendly source and just got around to listening to it. It is one of the best box sets from start to finish that I have listened to. Question to those familiar with the set: On my digital version there are noticeably glitches at the 2:00 mark on "Walking" on Disc 4 and at the 1:20 mark on "Laura" on Disc 4. Is that the case on all copies? I just want to know whether it just was an issue with the download. I will probably be looking to score 2d hand copy.
  11. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    Agreed. If Mosaic is taking a "Kickstarter" approach, it should embrace all aspects. Including how many "backers" a project attracted so far, the goal, and how much time left until the project needs to meet its goal. I am not that much into Woody Herman (and I have spent more than a few bucks at Mosaic this year), but if it is close, I would probably pre-order it just to get it in production.
