  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. To my ears so far this set is the best new archival jazz release in years.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!

  10. I was wondering if anyone has heard this Bear Family box set of the Balver Hole New Jazz Festival from 1974-1975. Apologies if this has been discussed, but when I did a search nothing came up. Would like to know if this is worth tracking down. Thanks!
  11. New Jazz Festival Balver Hohle 11-CD Set

    Thanks! I'm kind of surprised that no one has mentioned it here. People on this board, including myself, generally are obsessive when it comes to tracking down box sets!
  12. Please name your favorite ECM Records of the 21st century, (2000-2020). Thanks!
  13. New World Records

    The Cecil Taylor albums on New World Records, Cecil Taylor Unit and 3 Phasis, were absolutely instrumental in helping me fall in love with jazz when I first started listening back in 2003 and 2004.
  14. Covid vaccination: poll

    I got the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on February 6, due to being a schoolteacher. I had a lot of arm soreness from it, but that's it as far as side effects. I should be getting my second dose in about 10 days or so.
  15. For completists only....

    Oh no, that's deserted island material. That's not going anywhere!
  16. For completists only....

    I came close to having every Paul Chambers session that's been released, but as I got near the end, I got to some real dreck and made it me doubt the whole enterprise.
  17. Favorite ECM Records of the 21st Century

    Yeah, that's actually why I made it specific to the 21st century. Most of the time when people list their favorite ECM records, there's a lot of stuff from back in the 1970s. Given how much music ECM puts out, I figured there's probably some good stuff that I've missed.

  20. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Thanks! This is helpful. The only ones of these I've heard are the Leandre and the Dixon. I will check these out.
  21. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    I used to be heavily into this scene about 10-15 years ago but lost track of it since about 2010 or so. I unfortunately don't live near where these performers can be seen live (when there are live performances, that is). What are the best avant-free jazz recordings of the last 5-10 years? I want to get back into it.
