  1. news of the Teddy Wilson had me dig out some of the Hep CDs of his material. The music is just so fine that I'll be sure to go for this set. I also spun some Hep Goodmans Plays Mel Powell & Plays Jimmy Mundy which really didn't do a lot for me at all. Sorry Benny....
  2. Who are you just discovering?

    Not so much as what. I followed my nose to Strut Records. They've put out some excellent Sun Ra issues including RSD 2015 release Planets of life or death. I've been listening to their endless fascinating world music ( for want of better word) such as .... Reunion Island 1975-1986 Peru Bravo- Funk soul and psych
  3. Donde Esta, Bev Stapleton?

    I'm getting used to it. Not had any problems with it so far....
  4. I've never corresponded with Valerie but I've loved her stories. She told these well with insight and humour. It was clear to me that on this evidence alone she was/is cut from the finest cloth. I like others here hope that she'll be comfortable with those she needs around her.
  5. Steve Lacy 1965-1972

    I had this a few days . It's a typically excellnt Emanem reissue with unreleased material. It's all in great sound and as ever with Lacy , the music is as great as it's fascinating.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Veryan Weston-------Gateway to Vienna---------(emanem) disc one , just not sure how memorable this is. It's well played but it's not engaging my soul much. I'm not familiar with Weston, so I must give it a chance .
  7. Lucky Thompson

    I might be forced to get this if only to get "Plays for the Club" which to the best of my knowledge has never been reissued. Otherwise I have all of this and as LT obsessive I can thoroughly recommend the music.
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Steve Lacy -----------Free for a minute (1965-72)-----------------(emanem) disc one - Disposability. Immaculate reissue plus 44 mins unreleased music. A bargain
  9. Over the long term rather than immediately after purchase , I'd think that Herbie Nichols , Lee Morgan and Konitz/ Marsh probably would be the top three. Least played would be Herman Columbia, Basie Verve and Basie Live Roulette. You might think I don't like Basie, quite the contrary but a little goes a long way.
  10. Basso/ Valdambrini Quintet-------Fonit H602 H603------(Rearward) Very fine library music from what clearly on this evidence a superb outfit.
  11. Newly arrived James P Johnson set - disc one now 👍😀
  12. Isn't vinyl the future for a physical music product . I wonder why Mosaic haven't looked back to their vinyl past. Perhaps it's an issue of licensing but a vinyl oriented approach appears to be working for the likes of Resonance, Music Matters etc. i'd love to see a vinyl Nathan Davis set or Lucky Thompson's obscure Parisienne recordings. The Blue Note well of goodies has been dry for many years and whilst their sets reflecting the roots of jazz are often as essential as they are welcome, I'd be great to see branching out in other areas.
  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    hmm.....that looks interesting NP Neil Ardley --------BBC Sessions 1971---------(BBC/Duskfire)
  14. great album, this prompted me to go to Discogs only to realise just how few dates Wilson had as leader (or otherwise) and just how expensive Frank Lowe's LPs are.
