  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. Joe Henderson - Page One Zoot At Ease Very likely!
  4. Artificial Vinyl scarcity

    As most issues in the thread which are on the edge of First-World-Problem insanity /noemoticonintended.
  5. 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.

  20. The USPS SUCKS

    A parcel from UK (Royal Mail) with my right address in France on it has been sent wrongly to the US and has been sitting for 10 days in ISC NEW YORK NY (USPS) ! I hope the Jazz Epistles - Verse 1 reissue is not in a warehouse over 100°F. A very first from my cross-channel purchases!
