  1. FS/FT - Charles Tolliver vinyl

    "Compassion is especially underrated, and pretty hard (or at least pricy) to get on CD"- "Compassion" is also known as "New Tolliver." https://www.discogs.com/Charles-Tolliver-New-Tolliver/master/302341. CDJapan lists the 2009 Japanese, cardboard sleeve, remastered issue of "New Tolliver" as still being available although HMV Japan does not. http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/BVCJ-35117?s_ssid=e41d095cb59e2dc5ef

  5. Some of these concerts have previously been discussed: Saturday (March 30), 8pm: THUMBSCREW $20 in advance; $25 at the door This cooperative project features a trio of gifted musicians and composers — guitarist Mary Halvorson, bassist Michael Formanek and drummer Tomas Fujiwara — performing their own compositions and selected standards with an exacting prowess wed to a liberated swing that is glorious to behold. Saturday, April 20: SUN OF GOLDFINGER Returning to the Hudson Valley after their memorable closing set for the 2015 Beacon Jazz Festival, alto saxophonist Tim Berne, electric guitarist David Torn and drummer Ches Smith flatten any concept of musical boundaries in this forward-looking ensemble’s bracing embrace of the future unleashed within the present moment. The trio will be touring in support of their debut recording for ECM Records. Saturday, June 22: TICONDEROGA Four phenomenal musicians — Joe McPhee, Jamie Saft, Joe Morris and Charles Downs — invoke the spirit of late Coltrane and their own unique musical paths to forge a stirring, passionate fire sermon of a quartet.

Saturday, October 5: KAREN BORCA QUARTET The innovative, criminally under-recognized bassoonist, with decades of experience in the ensembles of such major artists as Cecil Taylor, Jimmy Lyons, William Parker and others, leads this thrilling quartet of veteran creative musicians including Warren Smith on vibes, Hilliard Greene on bass and Jackson Krall on drums.
  6. Additional Herbie Mann Live at Whiskey

    I wonder from where Thomas unearthed these multitrack tapes? IF Atlantic had them-wouldn't the tapes have burned in the fire?
  7. Nick Brignola

  8. Nick Brignola

    I have lived in the Albany area since 1989ish. Heard Nick in different configurations at different venues. He had many stories to tell. Although he was known for his baritone work, as you can see or hear he played many different reeds. At local concerts he might bring along 5 or 6 different instruments. He was very competitive. Supposedly when Nick was younger if a nationally known musician on a specific instrument, e.g., Phil Woods and his alto, played around Albany Nick would show up with that same axe to take on that musician (Woods confirmed this story). Nick was not shy-he might stop playing to tell somebody chatting while he was playing to shut the f***k up. The Priam lp was financed by a local businessman. Years, maybe decades, after the release of that lp Nick got his hands on crates of that lp. Sold the lp one at a time each for hundreds of dollars to Japanese collectors.
  9. Marty Krystall "Marty`s Mode" (K2B2) 2018

    I have never ordered directly from this label's website. But I have a number of the K2B2 releases, which are all cds. It was my understanding thattThe label was run by Buell Neidlinger. If so, with his death perhaps the label is now run by his estate and/or his spouse. Krystall was apparently a close colleague of Neidlinger's.
  10. good evening.  would you be willing to share the not two source that you were referring to that charged only around $7.00 for multiple cd not two shipments?

     

    thanks
