  1. Black Lion 24Bit remasters at 2001

    and skip the Mclaughlin plays Evans... its a dull one specially if you like both Artists
  2. Jan Johansson reissue coming?

    Some news on the Jan Johansson remasters: it seems that there is a new rematser of Musik Genom Fyra Sekler out at cdbaby... Has anyone checked that out and compared to the original version and can either recommend an upgrade ? Is there as well some additional footage embedded ? Cheers, Oliver EDIT: the new 2CD set is as well available at www.cdon.com for european orders.
  3. Pick my next Horace Silver

    for me its hard to choose one single disc out of the bunch but if its a single one only... as well the Cape Verdean one. Cheers, Tjobbe
  4. Black Lion 24Bit remasters at 2001

    mhhh, just listened to the three Pettifords (which I was mainly interested in beside the Monk in London Vol.1-3) which are live recordings from 1959 and I would not complain about their quality. I have non of those duplicate as original Black Lions (16Bit transfer) so I cannot comment on previous transfers. The sound is acceptable for a pre-60's live recording, heard much worse stuff. When I recall correctly there was an older thread somewhere in the re-issues vault that as well complaint about the 24bit were a bit "sharper" than the first transfers. Cheers, Oliver BTW: I wouldn't buy them for the full price like JPC charges for them here at 19€
  5. yes Claude have seen that as well, that pricing schema might be now a bit weird but there are two interesting aspects a) download and Hi-res can go together and there will be an alternative. I believe that there are/will be hi-res streaming clients soon as well that have high quality DAC's build in b) that a record company (though being indipendent) is explicitely mentioning to avoid any DRM That is a promising signal... Cheers, Oliver
  6. since few weeks Linnrecords is as well providing all of their catalogue as download without ANY DRM at all. They as well provide artwork with it for downloading and printout as well after successfully loading a record. What I found rather promising is the fact that they as well provide you with different quality for different price model so that you can choose between MP3/320k and WMA lossless but for some they as well provide hi-res WMA download comparable to their SA-CD quality (right now, its 5 records only, but who knows). Best regards, Oliver
  7. it was Mr. And Mrs Google. if you decide to stay longer, be prepared to need one soon.... Cheers, Oliver
  8. the 20bit jewel case and that sounded way superior to the 16bit german version. Cheers, Oliver
  9. Hans, I sold my German 1987 Out of the cool version recently after I compared it to the Japaneses version (guess who that sold to me ) Sonically that was definitely worse than the japanese one. I meanwhile checked my Inpluses and found others (not for sale of course ) which are the Blakey, the Coltrane&Ellington, the Jarrett Treasure Island and the Coltrane Ascencion being manufacture at Record Service GmbH Alsdorf and from 1987. Cheers, Oliver
  10. I got that with booklet and disk in mint condition Hans... the jewel case is not that good. In case of interest (trade possible as well) please PM me. I still have the village vanguard three track as duplicate here but without the booklet but pure CD so maybe that is not what you're looking for Best regards, Oliver
  11. Black Lion 24Bit remasters at 2001

    haven't compared it 1:1 but according to here http://www.jazz-lounge.de/IN.html (go to catalogue) it seems like the 2001 offering is complete. That side is I referenced above is a DA-music.de one from the the german owener of the black lion rights. hope that helps, Oliver
  12. How's the weather?

    Thanks Mike, my direct neighbors suffered more heavy with a destroyed car and the other with lot's of scratches in the roof of his house we couldn't fix during the night so the rain go in there poring into the bathroom where the tried to catch and stop it somehow. In other cases only some damage to trees. The leak I have in the barn's roof is at clear sight not that bad as it is only at an area where few bales where stapled so the majority has not suffered from the rain at all and kept dry. Due to the height of the roof, there was not much chances to fix anything myself. I'm waiting for the guy to fix it at least temporarily but he's late due to all the damage Cheers, Oliver
  13. How's the weather?

    sunny now , the storm was rushing through quicker than expected and left over some rain the night only, so as my Mosiac'S are all save its only the straw that gets a bit wet... Btw, Mosaic's... the famous Dionysos mosaic in the cologne Museum of roman art is potentially damaged by a wooden pannel protecting a fountain 100m nearby crushing the window and falling on to it Cheers, Oliver
  14. How's the weather?

    Do you mean "oops"? Or do you mean the roof flew ups in the air? .... both Scott, the german ups=oops and the ups=up as 10qm is gone with the wind...do not where it landed at least not on my property. Hope that the worst is over now, but I fear it might start raining before I can close the holes. Have about 100 (missed a "0" there...should be 1000) bales of hey and straw in the barn. Cheers, Oliver
  15. How's the weather?
