  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Zoot Sims - Cookin'! (1961) Japanese CD reissue. Unfortunately still with the edited version of Love For Sale - it's cut to half it's length!
  2. Jimmy Deuchar

    Forgot to mention that only one track (Desperation) on that Japanese "Cookin'" CD features Jimmy Deuchar. The original LP "Zoot At Ronnie Scott's" had 3. The Acrobat CD issue of Zoot Sims - At Ronnie Scott's 1961, has them. Also, playing this "Cookin'" disc now and was reminded that the Zoot track Love for Sale (without Deuchar) is edited to half it's length. Damn!

  6. Jimmy Deuchar

    Hey Soulpope, Noticed you asked in November, so you probably already know this, but just in case... Have you considered the "Jimmy Deuchar - Three Classic Albums, EP'S and Bonus Tracks" set on the Real Gone Jazz label. Definitely a European PD label but in desperation I finally bought this set. Damn things are ubiquitous in Australia and cost a pittance. I'd much prefer legit copies of this material but for the time being this does the job. Also this set might be a cheaper alternative to the Jasmine CDs (I assume they're a PD label as well). It includes the albums "Showcase", "Pub Crawling" "Pal Jimmy" plus tracks from various EP's (incl. with Victor Feldman, etc). Around $10 for a 4-CD set. All the tracks on the Jasmine Opus De Funk CD (mentioned earlier in the thread) are also included except the 2 (bonus) Ronnie Scott Quintet tracks - I'lll Take Romance and Speak Low. For the EP's a better option is the Zoot Sims - Cookin' album. And it's actually available from Japan! Cookin' is combines tracks from Sim's other LPs "Zoot At Ronnie Scott's" (except the 2 Harold McNair Quartet tracks) and "Solo for Zoot". I haven't come across proper digital versions of those, so the Cookin' CD works for me. A good option for those Deuchar EP's (with Feldman) would be the Jimmy Deuchar "Thou Swell" CD and also available from Japan.

    Playing this one now... Junior Wells - Hoodoo Man Blues
  8. Colbeck is the one I thought of as well. There was almost a CD version (finally!) from Japan last year but unfortunately cancelled, for some reason. Fwiw, that series (the so called E! Extra Vaganza series) offered nice packaging and the japanese SHM-CD thingy but the few I bought are needledrops!! Spontaneous Music Ensemble's Karyobin for one example. Karyobin's another that could be considered obscure. Fortunately, this one has recently been released by Emanem.
