  4. Blue Train (Deluxe Edition)

    Thanks for the confirmation Lon. John Vancouver BC
  5. Blue Train (Deluxe Edition)

    I pre-ordered the Blue Train Deluxe Edition and CD Japan sent me an e-mail on January 26: "We are sending you this email to let you know that we just received an update from the Universal Music informing us that the release of the item below will be cancelled, unfortunately. Blue Train [Deluxe Edition] [UHQCD] [Limited Release] John Coltrane Release Date: February 21, 2018 Catalog Number: UCCQ-9358 end quote Did anybody else get the same announcement from CD Japan (or wherever they pre-ordered from)?
  6. A quick bump to thank Alan for the CDs I purchased from this thread. John Vancouver BC
  7. PM on the way for: Freddie Hubbard – Fastball — Live at the Left Bank (Label M) $6.50 Clifford Jordan – These Are My Roots: Clifford Jordan Plays Leadbelly (Koch) $3.00 and maybe a couple others (after I research a few titles)... Thanks, John Vancouver BC
  8. Yes, an organissimo member contacted me by PM in late 2012 and offered the Vol. 3 booklet for $40 US. A nice guy... Sorry that I neglected to update this thread in 2012. John
  9. I just bought a copy of the Commodore Volume III Mosaic LP set on ebay. The price was very reasonable, but one of the reasons was the lack of the booklet. This is a REAL longshot, but if any members out there might have a spare copy of the Vol. III booklet (or have an idea where I might find one), I would be very interested. I will pay $40 to $50 US + shipping, I suppose. Thanks very much, john vancouver BC PS: yes, I did contact Mosaic to find out if they had a spare copy for sale (and Scott confirmed that they did not).
  10. https://vimeo.com/50148899 Somewhere in this four-part interview video (if I remember correctly), Michael Cuscuna says that a "live in 1964" volume had been prepared and was ready for release. The interview is around five years old, but at that time "1964" was supposed to be the third volume. Plans subsequently changed, of course. The 1964 recordings have now fallen out of the EU's 50 year copyright protection, but I don't know how much that changes Sony's plans.
  11. That explains it, thanks.
  12. A question for you and/or Lon, or anyone... Just to be clear, the Disk Union boxes are "empty" boxes, are they not? In other words, a product for collectors to buy just to hold CDs they've purchased separately. That's my recollection, but my memory seams to be going (!). So I would appreciate the confirmation... Thx.
  13. Thad & Mel: "The Great Concert"?

    I have this "The Great Concert" CD - I pulled it out and gave it a listen to contribute to this thread. "The Great Concert" CD is definitely a needle-drop of an LP, sourced from a stereo radio/tv broadcast. The vinyl-based pops and clicks during the quieter portions are very audible. The sound quality is a bit "dull" but the band is having a lot of fun. Lot's of great solos, of course, especially trombonist John Mosca on "Fingers" (the up-tempo "I Got Rhythm"-based tune). The CD's tracks: 1. "Fingers" (13:28) 2. "Thank You" (6:50) 3. "Take A Ladder" (8:46) 4. "Greetings And Salutations" (13:44) The CD's tracks and times match up with Poljazz LP ZSX 637, according to the wikipedia page linked by JSangy in post #2. So ZSX 637 would be the source for this CD's needle drop. There is no info on the CD's packaging except for "Recorded Live In Europe" and the personnel. The 15-or-so musicians that Jones verbally introduces between numbers do match up with the personnel in the booklet, so maybe the complete personnel list in the booklet is actually correct.
  14. Sending a PM to request that the following are held: Kirk ,Rahsaan Roland - Here Comes The Whistleman (Atlantic/Label M) $7 Paris Reunion Band - French Cooking (Gazell) W. Shaw, N. Davis $12 Parlan ,Horace - Glad I Found You (Steeplechase) Thad Jones, Eddie Harris $10 Tyner ,McCoy - Journey (Verve) $4 Thank you
  15. Savoy set coming from Mosaic

    Regarding the upcoming Mosaic Savoy BeBop box set: I hope Cuscuna & Co. plan to include the “rare” version of “Groovin’ High” with Dexter Gordon from the February 9 1945 Dizzy Gillespie session for Guild. The liner notes to the Savoy 3 CD set “Dizzy Gillespie: Odyssey 1945-1952” (released 2002) state this rare take of "Groovin' High" did not appear until the 1970s, when it was discovered on a mis-pressing of Guild 1001*. This rare take has since only appeared on bootlegs, to the best of my knowledge. Guild sessions under Gillespie’s leadership were apparently purchased by Musicraft, and then eventually came under the ownership of Savoy. Does this transfer of ownership chain apply to all of Guild’s “jazz” material? I’m bringing up this subject to see if I have the details right (corrections welcome), with a hope and plea that Mosaic is on the case for the first official reissue of this February 9 1945 “Groovin’ High.” The February 9 take is a great performance, and the sound quality of my bootleg CD's version is just fine. I'm sure Mosaic can find a better source and do much better... John *The February 28 1945 Gillespie session provided the take of "Groovin' High" chosen for Guild 1001, subsequently reissued many times on Savoy (including Savoy’s “Odyssey” 3 CD set, mentioned above).
  16. I've stumbled across a couple other "hard to find" pages over the past couple years. Thanks for starting this thread - it's a great reminder. As usual with jazzdisco.org, one can't really rely on these being anywhere near 100% correct, or up to date.

  17. Woody Shaw/Louis Hayes The Tour Volume 1

    Just a heads-up about the other "recent" (well, released in 2012) HighNote Woody Shaw release entitled "Woody Plays Woody": The CD is simply a compilation of previously-released tracks from the four other volumes of live Shaw material on HighNote. The CD features only Shaw compositions - hence the title. The current description of the CD at the HighNote website doesn't mention it is made up of previously-released tracks, either.
  18. Slightly off topic: Producer/archivist Steve Lasker answered reader questions and gave his own corrections for Mosaic's 11 CD Brunswick set in a DEMS from 2011. I think all of Lasker's corrections have to do with errors/omissions/mis-spellings in his liner notes and the discography. At the very end of this same section he also offers similar corrections for what he calls the "7 CD box booklet" (i.e.. Duke Ellington: The Complete 1936-40 Variety, Vocalion And Okeh Small Group Sessions). DUKE ELLINGTON MUSIC SOCIETY 11/1 April - July 2011 http://www.depanorama.net/dems/111.htm (scroll down a bit to the section titled "The Mosaic 11 CD Box Set")
  19. Woody Shaw/Louis Hayes The Tour Volume 1

    Thanks for the heads-up, Tom1960 and Lon. I had missed out on hearing of this new release. And it's "Volume 1...." Woody Shaw III and HighNote deserve recognition for all their archival Shaw releases the past 15-or-so years... John
  20. Happy Birthday Julian Priester

    I donated some money to that fundraiser. I met Priester at a jazz trombone clinic (circa 1985, when I was 15) and he was very kind and supportive. He handed out a leadsheet of an original theme of his, based on the changes to "All The Things You Are." It was titled "Juliano" - and I still have that leadsheet. I saw him again twenty five years later when he played a club date in Vancouver BC. I thanked him for coming and he was just as kind. I am happy to hear he is doing well in 2016.
  21. Hi Guys, I waited too long after Jonathan Horwich’s October 2014 CD reissue of Horace Tapscott "The Giant Is Awakened" to find a reasonably-priced copy. So if anyone has a Tapscott/International Phonograph/Horwich CD to offer, I have a sealed/mint Julius Hemphill “Dogon A.D.” CD (International Phonograph) to offer in trade. It's now long out of print. I wouldn’t require the Tapscott CD be sealed, just that it be in well-cared-for condition and hopefully with the paper inserts/liner notes. I'm of course willing to purchase a copy of the Tapscott if anyone wants to sell one. I’ll get a list together of additional stuff to offer in trade and add it to this thread within a couple days. Thanks, John Vancouver BC
  22. Bertrand's reply above was in regards to the following question earlier in the thread: - Quote - On November 18, 2015 at 1:05:12 PM, ghost of miles said: Fans of the early-1970s edition of the group--have you checked out this 2-CD release yet? Weather Report Agora Columbus Ohio October 17th 1972 http://www.amazon.com/Agora-Columbus-Ohio-October-17th/dp/B00V6XVUFO/ref=sr_1_1ie=UTF8&qid=1449016412&sr=8-1&keywords=weather+report+agora - end quote - I don't question Bertrand's information on this, but the release IS confusing. I checked out the current releases on this "Hi Hat" label and the others (about twelve or so) all appear to be live bootleg CDs: Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, etcetera. The kind of big names that would be on major labels with lots of press attention for a new "from the vaults" live album. Plus, web searches show the Hi Hat label itself doesn't seem to have an official website or available contact information. Any more details (from anyone) would be appreciated... John PS: forgive my clumsy attempt to quote from two different posts in one reply
  23. Mr. JSngry, I've enjoyed so much of your writing here at organissimo for several years. Sometimes I actually have to think. Damn funny, too. So thanks, finally... John, Vancouver BC
