  1. Miles Davis: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 7

    Miles's 1980s music is bad. Every time I give it a try it disappoints me. They really, really, really need to release a set around the Cosey band. It's criminal that they haven't done so. Don't tell me that it's too uncompromising. A lot of people love that music.
  2. Which Box Sets do You Regret Buying, and Why?

    Pretty much any time I bought a Mosaic box based off of the fact that it was Mosaic rather than really wanting the music. Mosaic has done so many forgettable (from my perspective) sets.
  3. Hello, I am looking for this 28-disc Sun Ra set that was released on Transparency awhile back. If you have one that you would be willing to part with, or know of a place other than Discogs where one can be had, please PM me. Thanks!

    I picked this up at my local record store this week. I think it is one of the most beautiful box sets I have ever seen. The photos and everything are absolutely incredible. Of course, I had almost all of this on CD, but I haven't listened to the CDs in years and I didn't have any of it on vinyl. I am enjoying the set a great deal, mainly because other than the Golden Circle albums I have never paid too much attention to Ornette's Blue Note period. For me, there haven't been many good jazz box sets in the last couple years. I haven't liked/been interested in any of the Mosaic releases. The best ones that have come out have been the Blue Note Lee Morgan box and this one.
  5. Miles Davis: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 7

    I don't understand why they didn't release it years ago. All the metal spine boxes they did seemed to be heading towards a culmination with the Agharta/Pangaea material. Why was that box never released?
  6. Active Trombonists

    Thanks for the responses. Would love to see recommendations for specific recordings featuring trombone, say from the last 20 years or so. I know the question is revealing my ignorance, but listening to older jazz I realized this is an instrument I have always loved to hear, and yet I don't know a lot that has been produced in the 21st century... Thanks for reminding me of Petrella. I saw him play live in New York with Enrico Rava several years ago, and he stood out for sure.
  7. Active Trombonists

    This will seem like a ridiculous question perhaps, but who are the best jazz trombonists working today? Especially interested in those who have recorded as a leader. Thanks!
  8. Hello, I'm looking for the Golden Years of the Soviet New Jazz series on Leo Records. If you have any that you would sell or trade, please send me a PM. Thanks!
  9. The photos are fantastic. It's a beautiful set. I'm so grateful that they released all this material and gave it the treatment it deserved.
  10. To my ears so far this set is the best new archival jazz release in years.
  11. I never understood why people weren't more pumped for this release. Yes, it was going to be repetitive. So is the Miles Plugged Nickel set. Lee Morgan for me is second only to Miles Davis as far as jazz trumpeters go. Previously unreleased high-quality recordings put out in an affordable CD box set? Yes please. I've gotten through the first two discs and it's fantastic.
  12. Hi, I'm looking to see if anyone has a copy of the Black Saint/Soul Note Steve Lacy box set. I'm looking for the first one, which covered his Solo, Duo, and Trio albums. If you have it and would be willing to sell or trade, please send me a PM. Thanks!
  13. Updated, with price drops on remaining sets.
