  1. There are only 5 Joe Henderson albums from 1963 - 1966. While that might make a nice LP set, in terms of CDs is far short of what has become the more common format of release 7+ CD sets. I have not done the math relative to consolidating multiple LPs onto a single CDs, but even 5 individual CDs doesn't seem to jibe with their current practice. Could there be that much unreleased material or could this be filled with endless alternate takes? Also wondering if they might do something like the Complete 1963 Blue Note recordings of Joe Henderson. IMHO, that would be a very interesting set based on the artists and titles represented 10 in all - Henderson's Page One and Our Thing Kenny Dorham's Una Mas, Grant Green's Am I Blue and Idle Moments Johnny Coles' Little Johnny C Blue Mitchell's Step Lightly Andrew Hill's Black Fire Lee Morgan's The Sidewinder Bobby Hutcherson's The Kicker. Or maybe some other subset of his collective work from this period
  2. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    Congrats - seems like your hunch about the ordering a few extra was right on. You must have bagged one of the last ones. Enjoy the set!
  3. I voted NO. I wish there was an emphatically no button. I mostly lurk here and occasionally post. I've gained so much information from this forum I would hate to have its existence challenged by what Facebook has become. I don't do social media and have no interest is starting. I'm familiar enough with Facebook to know that it would be tough to go back and revisit older posts for retrospective info and comments. I really like the community that has been established here. It seems like someone comes here to talk about jazz with a few other threads that broaden the scope. I would hate to have this forum whither away and be replaced by a platform in which jazz and music are not the focus. I like the no politics approach here as well. Sorry, but I would not enjoy knowing who likes or hates Trump or Biden, who supports Brexit, BLM, believes in climate change, Confederate monuments or any other political issue. I like and enjoy the respite from that and focus on music. I like that all the information is here. I don't have to check here for an album review and then have to go to Facebook to see if there are any comments there on the same topic etc etc etc I understand the intent and idea was benign. Once in a while, the board goes down. Personally, I can survive. An alternative site - Jazz Talk - has been proposed. I think that's all that is needed.
  4. Does anyone know how many sets are in each production run?
  5. COVID-19

    That's really the key. The healthcare system has two main risk (that I can think of): 1. Healthcare workers being inadvertently/unknowingly becoming infected 2. Lack of appropriate critical care beds and associated equipment I'm reading that "flattening the infection curve" is the best way to avert a horrible outcome here. If only we could get our production of hand sanitizers to meet demand. Cancelling mass gatherings would help too.
  6. Donde Esta, Bev Stapleton?

    I'm about 3-4 year out from retirement and have to say that I dread the day that I leave my job. I am the Director of Pharmacy Services for a hospital system in Western New York State. I started in the same system 40 years ago as a pharmacy intern and have worked my way up to the position I now occupy. As leader of our system, I'm doing tons of things I never thought possible - putting pharmacists in our Emergency Departments, starting Pharmacy Residency Programs, placing Clinical Pharmacists in clinics in under served areas, starting antimicrobial stewardship programs bringing all sorts of new technology to manage our inventory and increase the efficiency of our medication dispensing systems. Years of establishing a reputation and earning credibility have given me opportunities I never thought possible for someone like myself. I am loving every minute of my job and knowing that it is coming to an end saddens me. Not sure what I'll do after retirement.
  7. Does Oscar Peterson get a bad rap?

    That's some nice stuff. Maybe I'll try the YouTube route to check out some more OP. After all, I have sat next to him in Ottawa:
  8. Does Oscar Peterson get a bad rap?

    I have the Mosaic Peterson and enjoy it a lot. I haven't ventured beyond that though - mostly because I keep hearing he plays too many notes and is not interesting. I figure maybe I found the sweet spot with the Mosaic and don't want to ruin it for myself.
  9. Blue Note Review Volume 3

    I was wondering the same thing. So much so that I did some searches a couple of days ago and came up empty. I was thinking that perhaps this thread was an announcement of a new set. I remember seeing something to the effect that Don Was underestimated how much time and effort it took to conceptualize and assemble one of these boxes so I know they backed off their original schedule. It also appears that volume 2 is still available. Maybe they are waiting to sell out before issuing another? Or maybe sales of volume were lower than expected and they're dropping the concept. Who knows?....

  13. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    I just checked my credit card and I was charged today. Looking forward to hearing this after so long of a wait.
  14. Well, I sent the suggestion for a Chick Corea set to Mosaic. Scott thought it was an excellent suggestion and forwarded to Michael. We shall see.
