  1. Neil Swainson - 49th Parallel

    Actually, this is a label run by Cory Weeds, a sax player who has been presenting jazz in Vancouver for years. I believe he has a label called Cellar Live that has recorded many CDs over the past few years and Reel to Real is the archival wing I guess. Yes, Zev Feldman is involved with getting the live recordings he is releasing but I'm pretty certain the label is Cory's and he deserves the credit.

    To be clear, I was talking about Atlantis the album, not the specific tune and again, while Twin Dragon stylistically fits right in with every other tune on the album, I hear no part of the melody showing up on any of the tunes on Atlantis. At least I don't recall this to be true, it's been a while since I worked on this music but just singing Twin Dragon in my head now tells me there is nothing there I have heard elsewhere in any of the other tunes on Atlantis. I would need to take a deeper dive into the tunes he wrote for Weather Report to really give you a complete answer there but a lot of this has more to do with the band performing the music then what was written.

    To me, it just sounds like another tune written during the same period that just didn't make it onto the album. Nice tune, totally in the style of the other tunes on the album. I don't recall any parts of the tune being used elsewhere later on....

    Not really, actually hardly at all. He uses the same 3 note melody fragment that is in Universe and Sanctuary on one of the tunes here and on another tune, there is another melody fragment that has something in common with a few notes from Universe and Sanctuary. Other then that, there is nothing in common. I believe the tunes on the unreleased session are probably sketches at best and perhaps a few chord changes written out while Universe is essentially through composed.
  5. New Charles Tolliver

    I believe Lenny White and Buster Williams are on it among others. Recorded in the UK while on tour there last Fall.
  6. Joe Henderson at the Lighthouse

    It's a bootleg and it's actually from the Both/And (same tour though). I vetted these tapes a while back. There is more then just these three tracks. It's decently recorded and it's all killing....
  7. Joe Henderson

    I have the bootleg, it came out first, and there are a few tunes on that CD that are not on the official release and vice a versa. It's all amazing stuff.....
  8. Blue Note's TONE POET series.

    Thanks... I guess they should have coordinated answers or something though.... Kevin's explanation implies that these tapes weren't handled correctly at some point and from my experience, which is admittedly limited, this is certainly not the case.... Some well respected engineers I know actually like the vintage Scotch tape mentioned above as well....
  9. Blue Note's TONE POET series.

    I haven't been following this too closely but I have a question for you guys.... Is this the same guy who went on this same thread on the Hoffman forum earlier and said he didn't hear the issue in question or that there was nothing there? I know some engineers that would have a different opinion then this...
  10. Perhaps donate them to Down Beat. I was told years ago their archives were flooded so they might want to have a complete collection again or perhaps they are relieved they don't have to deal with maintaining an archive...
  11. John Coltrane - Blue World

    I believe pubic domain has to do with when the recordings have been released, not when they were recorded..... I'm sure Rudy did record this on a proper machine with proper tape etc etc... Rudy ran this machine as a back up to give people tapes to take home (at least for Coltrane and Alfred Lion as far as I know).... So, tapes that have been lost are rediscovered when someone associated with someone who was important enough to take home tapes from Rudy find the tapes. Most of the Coltrane stuff comes from the family though I'm told there have been other sources. I'm working on something now that involves one of these types of tape. Even with the slower speed and such, they sound great.
  12. The head to B. Harper's "Capra Black" - crazy!!

    Give me an e-mail address and I'll forward it to you.
  13. The head to B. Harper's "Capra Black" - crazy!!

    It's in 9 but it's not a usual subdivision of 9 which is usually 3,3,3 I guess.... It's usually 4,1, 4 but in one section it's more 4,4,1. I kind of have a soft spot for this version but listening to it now, it sounds tame compared to how we play it live.... Whoever asked about Capra Black, I can hook you up with a lead sheet of sorts for that if you are still curious....

    I thought they were printing unsubstantiated rumors without doing any investigating at all at first and it was very harmful to the process at the beginning of this campaign, casting doubt as to the validity of the page and putting doubt into the minds of people who wanted to donate. I had an issue with that. They did recover and print a correction early on and have since published a long letter from Kenny going into all the details of their issues. I found it sad that Kenny had to take the time to go into such personal detail about his issues. That couldn't have been easy for him. I see the same doubts expressed here and are continuing. I find that unfortunate as well.... I know there is a hunger for content and not much budget to investigate things but to print articles where sources are pulled from the comments section on the gofundme page or going further back (and a personal issue for me) comments on this very board that were used as "news." It's troubling to me.... Sorry Ted, missed this one.... Exactly, no investigation though the post I had issue was the one where they expressed concern about the validity of the campaign and their source I believe was the doubt expressed in the comments section of the gofundme page and apparently nothing else. That is not journalism by any means...
