  1. Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder

    yeah, orchestral version IIRC, but yeah.
  2. *** SUN RA Corner***

    cool! One of my favorites, though I've never had a Saturn copy.
  3. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Good one -- have the original silkscreen private press that Hino did for his "Love" imprint.
  4. Jazzhus Montmarte Is Closing Its Doors

    Sad news! Legendary spot, never been to Copenhagen but...
  5. Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder

    It is an iconic album in the Blue Note catalog, and the title track is very listenable.
  6. Great Finds

    (IMO) excellent session. Ken returned to his native Jamaica and is now a missionary. Sweet man.
  7. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    crazy. The LP is usually $5-$10. It's a good one.
  8. Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder

    yeah, I got a decent $2 Liberty USA copy maybe 20-25 years ago; decided to purge it a while back and was surprised to get like $40 for it. Good record but I did not feel the need to keep one in the racks. Maybe I'll grab a Japanese at some point.
  9. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    fantastic album.
  10. The All Things Van Morrison Thread

    I know a fair amount of musicians that fall into the same camp; most are around Van's age. I tend to disagree with their conspiratorial mindsets but value my connection with them as people and artists.
  11. RIP Stanley Crouch

    Thanks for sharing the Shipp posts, can see 'em now. I guess I am a bit young to have witnessed a lot of what he's talking about, and the outing bit is even worse than I realized.
  12. RIP Stanley Crouch

    no longer on FB, and wish I could read Matt's thread. certainly Crouch was an asshole but he is/was hard to avoid on some level if one engages seriously with this music.
  13. RIP Stanley Crouch

    Wonder if we'll ever get to hear the Black Music Infinity recordings? Or read Outlaws & Gladiators?
  14. RIP Stanley Crouch

    yeah. though much earlier, Ain't No Ambulances... gets deep into some very homophobic zones. Not easy to stomach.
  15. RIP Stanley Crouch

    My thoughts exactly.
