  1. I'm talking about entire albums and, in some cases, artists' entire discographies that were never digitized. I couldn't begin to list all the albums on labels like ABC Paramount, Decca, and Kapp that were never digitized. The original vinyl is what is left.
  2. All of that is irrelevant. Those albums at least were digitized. The outrage is the loss of all the stuff that was never digitized.
  3. In old photos and movies, why do we see famous dead people in crowds? Because there is no one alive to advocate for the forgotten.

    Thank you!
  5. João Gilberto RIP

    They all fit on a single CD! I have it. Three LPs plus an EP. All songs clock in at 1:41 each!
  6. does piano technique suffer from playing organ?

    I always play B3 with percussive settings, and it helps me to think of it as a percussion instrument, especially if i'm doing a lot of left-hand jabs between chords. In fairness, depending on how it is being played, a B3 has characteristics of both a wind and a percussion instrument.
  7. João Gilberto RIP

    Thanks. I saw him also in 1988 and the show similarly covered all sorts of styles. I should add that I have very little of his 80s music, at least until I got all of these remasters. I'm still working my way through the New York period, much of which I already had on Evidence CDs.

    So do you subdivide the post-1968 material in any meaningful fashion?
  10. João Gilberto RIP

    Amaroso, with arrangements but the Great Claus Ogerman, is one of my favorite albums ever. RIP.

    No, but thanks.

    I am working my way through approximately 60 of the recent-ish Sun Ra remasters, from the master tapes. I am sorting them more or less chronologically - I already understand the inherent challenges with this - and have placed them into folders representing, so far, Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia. While the Chicago and New York folders contain a digestible number of albums, there are zillions of post-1968 Sun Ra albums in the Philly folder. I am admittedly much more familiar and intimate with Sonny's Chicago and New York output. What I would like to know is if there is any meaningful for helpful way to chronologically (or otherwise) sub-categorize the post-1968 albums.

    Thank you for the link. Have you ever started a thread here about jazz education? I would love to participate, and I'm sure you would get some very interesting responses.

    Cool, let us know!

    Watched Sun Ra: A Joyful Noise for the first time last night. Loved it. I wish it had gone on for twice as long.
