  1. Selling a Mosaic set on ebay without a proper mention of Mosaic or no mention at all is major mistake and the ending price does not represent its actual value. The poor filters/categories on ebay make it difficult to track down a specific record, unless you make multiple searches, a real hassle. And it's got worse over the years. My steal of the year was the Nat King Cole 27 LPs, almost sealed and delivered for $120. When discogs will start selling lots and do auctions, Ebay will look even more pathetic, musicwise.

    Paul Bley - Solo in Mondsee Michel Petrucciani - Promenade with Duke Randy Weston - Berkshire Blues
  6. That would be great indeed! In the same vein, I wonder if there is any book of Robert Guidi/Tri-Arts covers, another great favorite of mine!
  7. Classy! I happen to have the Moondog Esquire LP but without the cover ( the LP was in The Second City Jazzmen 32-053 that I got for almost nothing). I may consider having the corresponding cover art, thanks for the thread. I have a soft spot for Esquire original covers and the sound of the records is unique (if I manage to listen to them as some platters are a bit over 30cm and my turntable won't spin, like Hawk Eyes).
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I have fond memories of this one but have not listened to it for ages. Time to remedy that! This morning was: The Conversation - O.S.T. Mankunku - Yakhal' Inkomo (from Deezer but it has been reissued on LP last week!!) Bennie Maupin - Penumbra

    Crescendo this evening: George Shearing - Burnished brass Mike Mainieri - Blues on the other side David Amram - Havana/New-York Bill Evans - Conversations with myself Lee Konitz - Very Cool max roach - members,don't git weary.
  10. It's youuuur thing + Wayne = !!!! Yes, I usually don't change sides right away, so I was a bit surprised. Reading a bit online, I am still miles and miles away from the Fully-Manual-Is-The-Only-way-To-Listen-To-Music purists. Today has been: Laurent de Wilde - New Monk Trio The Jazz Messengers - Soul Finger (how come Bartz is credited nowhere!) Duke Ellington - Piano Reflections (finally listening to this beauty!!)
  11. Thelonious Monk ‎- Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960 On both sides, my automatic-return turntable got stuck in the runout groove. Do you know if it affects the wear of the stylus?
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Miles Davis ‎- In A Silent Way My first spin (those obstinate commonplaces I always had about post-68 Miles )
  13. Officially starting tomorrow after fueled debate, French Christian churchgoers will say "Do not let us enter into temptation" rather than "Do not submit us to temptation"... Back on topic, now playing Lionel Hampton!
  14. It is part of the 4 volumes issued by Pablo and recorded in Washington D.C. with the Bill Potts Trio in early December 1956 (https://www.discogs.com/search/?q=pablo+lester+young+potts&format_exact=Album&type=master). I realize just now that there is a fifth volume issued in the late 90s (https://jazztimes.com/reviews/albums/lester-young-in-washington-d-c-1956-volume-five/). No exact recording dates are provided on the LPs. Pointless to rank/rate them, but the series as a whole is beautiful, my go-to records from Pres in the 50s.

    Gildo Mahones, that's a new name to me! Browsing quickly the 55-65 RVG sessions on Wikipedia early this week was of no avail to identify this track, but it's well and truly there! Thanks for the BFT!
  16. "Prez" Vol. II (Pablo) 'Bird' is Free (Esquire) Two great Live records! I am surprised there is no "album covers showing kitchenware" thread!
  17. Gary Burton - Dreams So Real
  18. Mal Waldron Plays the Blues (formerly from Herning CentralBibliotek) McCoy Tyner - Trident (formerly from Troyes Médiathèque) Two piano trios I really like and the records are surprisingly in excellent condition!
  19. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The World of Cecil Taylor Silver's Blue (Portrait)
  20. Yes, I love those records! I have the same GXC edition as yours, soulpope. Zounds (Vol. 2) is a great record too. I still have to listen to Volumes 1&4. My morning LP was: The Gary Burton Quintet - Ring.
