  5. I hear you, the time elapsed between the end of WWII and my birth is less important than my age by now, but the majority of my jazz listening has been recorded before I was born. Here are a few records I have enjoyed in the present century, the ones in bold maybe a little more. Jarek Śmietana / Gary Bartz - African Lake Abdullah Ibrahim Trio - Cape Town Revisited Michel Graillier, Riccardo Del Fra - Soft Talk Mal Waldron / Jeanne Lee - After Hours Rene Urtreger - Onirica Paolo Fresu - Kind Of Porgy & Bess Archie Shepp & Mal Waldron - Left Alone Revisited Mal Waldron / Jean-Jacques Avenel / Steve Lacy - One More Time E.S.T. - Seven Days Of Falling Tony Kofi Quartet - Plays Monk Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey - Walking With Giants Kora Jazz Trio - Part Two Organissimo - This Is the Place The Bennie Maupin Ensemble - Penumbra Paul Bley - Solo In Mondsee Reptet - Chicken Or Beef? Sophie Alour - Opus 3 Abdullah Ibrahim - Sotho Blue John Tchicai, Charlie Kohlhase, Garrison Fewell, Cecil McBee, Billy Hart - Tribal Ghost Yusef Lateef Part- Live At The Olympia June 27.2012 Stéphane Kerecki Quartet - Nouvelle Vague Heads Of State - Search For Peace Ahmad Jamal - Marseille Laurent De Wilde - New Monk Trio Nicolas Moreaux - Far Horizons Plus I have discovered and enjoyed many musicians from attending their concerts or from heavy collecting from Dime around 2005-2010 and I should seek out their corresponding recordings at some stage.

  8. That's a pity, sorry if I might have directed you to this dealer, he processes slowly but I hope all will turn out well.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The Bo Harwood Film tapes Hallelujah Chicken Run Band - Take One
  10. :party: !! Happy Birthday Joe !! :party:
  11. A great one! I got my copy from TrueAsia/madpierrot on discogs two years ago for about $20 without shipping. This seller regularly adds this Waldron record in his Marketplace. He is one-of-a-kind fella but I have never been disappointed by the records I received at long last.
  12. Art Tatum - Solo Masterpieces Vol. 12 Shelly Manne & His Men Vol. 4 - Swinging sounds. Not clear whether the record title is not Contemporary Swinging sounds on the UK Vogue issue.
  13. Abdullah Ibrahim - The Balance

    A fine record. I like the rendition of the title track. From his recent records, I think I've enjoyed Sotho Blue the most (Nisa!) released around the time I saw the group in Ramatuelle. It was a great night. From his post 1990 outputs, the ones I return the most often are Yarona, Cape Town Flowers, Cape Town Revisited and African Magic. A new record is coming soon called Dream Time on Enja!
  14. Joe Henderson - Page One Zoot At Ease Very likely!
  15. Artificial Vinyl scarcity

    As most issues in the thread which are on the edge of First-World-Problem insanity /noemoticonintended.
  16. Artificial Vinyl scarcity

    The main reason I buy vinyl is that my attention span is more important with this format. I feel incomparably more active both listening to the music and reading (liner notes or online) about it. Becoming a cover freak has been a secondary effect though. As long as the record is legit and VG+, the sonic & fidelity aspects are way secondary to me. I take care of my records but I am nowhere near a maniac when storing/manipulating/cleaning them. If the stationary state I'm living in remains, I'm certain than the vast majority of my records can be enjoyed for another good dozen spins.
  17. No Fedora hat was allowed on the early French versions of Monk's Dream, only a French beret! Great photograph by JP Leloir! https://www.discogs.com/The-Thelonious-Monk-Quartet-Monks-Dream/release/2810778 NP: George Russell Sextet at Beethoven Hall (MPS Spain)
