    That was the Holy Grail for many years, wasn't it? How about those Leo Parker TOCJs? They're pretty rare...or so I thought? One's on eBay. There was only one Leo Parker TOCJ. "Rolling With Leo" was only issued on CD in the US. Those two US CDs by Leo Parker are hard to find even today. I almost included "Let Me Tell You 'Bout It" in my list of rarities above, but since it's reissue as an RVG, it's been in several used bins around here. No "Rolling With Leo" discs though. I've got both Rollin' With Leo (4095) and Let Me Tell You About It (4087) on TOCJ from Japan.

    TURANDOT The Bob Belden Ensemble is an inventive jazz treatment of the Puccini opera Turnandot. This ensemble includes Wallace Roney, Tim Hagans, Joe Lovano, Dave Liebman and Tony Williams among others. When the music publishers of the original opera found out, they withdrew permission to use Puccini’s music, just before the CD was issued. It was briefly released in Japan where copyright laws are different. But about 50 copies of the US/European version leaked out. This one is verrrry difficult to get your hands on. POPPIN' Hank Mobley Japan TOCJ. Features Pepper and is a great recording. This one can be found and is worth the effort!
  8. I remeber the RVG issued in the States a few years ago had some distortion at the end of one of the tracks. I see this is now available in Japan...does anyone know if the distortion has been cleaned up in this newer version?

Is it worth picking up? Does it contain all the tracks from the original two releases?

    You and me both. any news? Basra is slated for release as soon as those pesky WMD's are found...
  14. Wayne Shorter - Odyssey of Iska

    This is a great Blue Note session. If you don't have this, be sure to pick it up!
  15. Jimmy Smith trio + LD

    Wow, that HMV really is copy came in a matter of days. The sound doesn't seem bad to my ears. There are some clicks at the end of track #6, but it is at least after the music stops. Is it the tape or in the studio? This is a good session and well worth picking up. What are the other Bluse Note Works that are being re-issued, anyone know?
