  1. I was just about to share this news - WOW! It would be interesting to look at any reissues from the last 10 years from these labels to see of they say they were sourced from the original master tapes...
  2. Blue Note - Vinyl Me, Please Anthology

    Saw via Instagram that the next two albums in the set are Lou Donaldson - Natural Soul (soul jazz) and Wayne Shorter - Schizophrenia (post bop). The ‘fusion’ and ‘modern’ titles are tbd.
  3. BN80 LPs

    Hey guys, Wondering if anyone has picked up any of the new BN80 reissue LPs..... May 10 – Blue Note Debuts, Part 1 Dexter Gordon – Doin’ Allright (1961) Herbie Hancock – Takin’ Off (1962) Robert Glasper – Canvas (2005 And if so, whaddya think? I guess they are sold out and awaiting a repress...
  4. “Nonbreakable”

    Hi folks, I just picked up a copy of BRAFF!! By Ruby Braff (admittedly mainly for the classic cover). The LP says it is “nonbreakable”. Am I able to play this with my regular stylus or is this more like an old 78? Please school me. Thanks!
  5. Oh snap! Love it. Nice internet sleuthing btw.
  6. Yeah, that’s the underside of a lot of great jazz musicians, and artists in general. 🙁 BTW, I opened a show for a recent version of Ides of March not too long ago. Jim Peterik came over and talked to us for a bit. Cool guy, cooler hair. 👍🏻
  7. My preferred version of the above song...
  8. Just started listening to the Dodo Greene on Spotify. Couldn't get past "You Are My Sunshine" - wowza - now I remember why I sold my Conn years ago.
  9. Harold Vick - Steppin’ Out - one of my faves. Highly recommended.
  10. Definitely picking up Merry Go Round, Portrait of Shelia and Cliff Jordan - three titles that have somewhat escaped me over the years. I saw Shelia Jordan a few years ago in Chicago - man, she's a kick!
  11. Blue Note - Vinyl Me, Please Anthology

    I agree - I thought they were just going to be releasing some LPs via Vinyl Me, Please, not creating some expensive faux social club. And what are the six albums? I don't buy records just because they're records. A wasted opportunity. Does anyone own the Vinyl Me, Please version of Fancy Free by Donald Byrd. I'll admit I've almost joined their club to get that record.
  12. Blue Note - Vinyl Me, Please Anthology

    But I wanna join and become a true student of jazz.
