  1. The Nessa Juggernaut rolls on

    Thanks!
  2. The Nessa Juggernaut rolls on

    A quick question regarding the new releases as compared to the 1967/68 Box Set: You mentioned earlier that there would eventually be four single discs and one double. Congliptious (single), Old/Quartet Sessions (double), and All The Numbers (double) seem to cover most of the box set, with the exception of "A to Ericka" and "Quintet" from Disc D. Is that correct? Can we expect (hope) to see one more single disc release?
  3. Best track you heard all week

    Charles Mingus - "Meditations on Integration", Belgium 1964 (Jazz Icons DVD). Hole. Lee. Shit. Eric Dolphy makes me want to cry.
  4. Another One Bites the Dust

    Damn.
  5. New York thru 20 February

    McCoy Tyner, Feb 14, 15, 16 at the Blue Note. He was here (Grand Rapids, MI) last week... very glad I was able to go. (I suppose that the Blue Note may not be "off the beaten path"..., but, in case you didn't already know about it...)
  6. FS: Sam Rivers - Fuchsia Swing Song

    Worth the price just to hear "Beatrice".
  7. Same album titles - WAY different music.

    One for Big Al!
  8. Same album titles - WAY different music.

    and, for extra credit:
  9. embarrassing self promotion

    Up. The full video is available for download. The Kenny G reminiscences have been edited out, but what's left is still interesting!
  10. Anthony Braxton

    I thought Braxton was done with the GTM stuff, but then I noticed the dates (2003). Here's another new one, out February 15. It's been mentioned in other threads, but not here yet: Anthony Braxton & John McDonough - 6 Duos (Wesleyan) 2006 (Nessa) Amazon
  11. 2010 jazz critics top 50 releases

    Glad to see Halvorson's "Saturn Sings" on the list... one of my favorites this year.
  12. One of my near future releases

    ... and the Nessa juggernaut rolls on ...
  13. What's your holiday beef?

    "We serve hard drinks for men who want to get drunk fast". What's not to like about that??? All Hail Pottersville! I'll bet Nick's serve a wicked Long Island Tea. No way. That's a total wuss drink. Nick's was all about Whiskey and Scotch. Neat. Get with the program, FFA. :P:)
  14. Odd pairing.

    Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington - "The Great Summit". Both of those guys suck, individually. But, together... WTF!!!

  16. Tristano Mosaic FS

    If I remember correctly, those notes are also reprinted in Larry's book.
  17. what are you drinking right now?

    Jameson, neat.
  18. all things emusic

    I put my account on 90-day hold, and will end up canceling. I'm done as well. I might reconsider if they had lossless (FLAC) downloads, but I'm sure that won't happen anytime soon.
  19. That is a fantastic deal... order placed. Thanks, Mr. Smith!!!
  20. Are you an introvert?

    Introvert here. I'd add more, but I really don't know what else to say! :blush2:
  21. A fictitious Braxton record??!!! ...they probably needed to make one up, as there are so few Braxton records!
  22. What music did you buy today?

    That is a fantastic record... I have it only as a download from eMusic, but sooner or later I need to find the CD or vinyl. FYI - Cadence has restocked much of the Black Saint & Soul Note catalog, including most or all of the Muhal titles. And Black Saint may release a Muhal box at some point. Thanks. I hope I won't regret it, but rather than buying the individual CDs, I'm going to wait for the box set.

  24. all things emusic

    My inclination is to bail out, for the reasons mentioned above. Even if I completely ignored all of my eMusic downloads, I still have way too much to listen to on CD and vinyl. For the occasional thing "I really need, right now", Amazon seems to be a good answer. The recurring charges of eMusic are easy to ignore on the credit card statement, and of course, they know that.
