  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Saw this group (with Turre added) within days of this performance. Some of the tunes played here such as ‘Eastern Joy Dance’ were at my gig too.
  2. George Coleman In Baltimore 1971 (Left Bank) out Nov 27/Dec 11

    The RSD vinyl still seems to be up for sale at Jazz Messengers. Just ordered a copy !
  3. Tea and Sympathy ???

    Can’t go wrong with Tetley’s. Usually my preference at the supermarket and I go through lots of it !
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    MPS 5CD set. Very interesting ! The ‘Little Suite’ with Jimmy Woode and Albert Heath from 1965, released on Preiser, is stunning.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Resteamed CD. Recorded in Abbey Road with photographers and film crews present, no pressure on Stan and the band then.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Pulling out the vinyl of this one, after the 1968 Resonance LP spin. These are significant releases !
  7. Picked up my LP copy of the Maupin at the old ‘VinylWest’ store in Stuttgart. The owner told me at the time that he had recently bought cover designer Barbara Wojirsch’s collection of ECMs from her. So my copy is quite possibly one of those. Sad that she got rid of her personal set of these wonderful designs but at least one of them got an appreciative home.
  8. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    First spin of the new Resonance, copy #795. Considering the sound source, quite acceptable sonics, better than expected in fact and what seems to be an excellent pressing. Great music by this trio and the live atmosphere at Scott’s is well captured (). Recommended ! The trio were at Scott’s for a month during that stint and the cohesion and ease with the venue shows in the performance.
  9. Black Unity Trio – Al-Fatihah

    I would hazard to guess that the sound on this one is better than on the original ! Agree with your comment on the packaging - they could have used a sturdier cardboard, I guess this was an ‘eco’ job. On the whole, happy with it though.

    More good stuff from the Black Forest..
  11. Not sure what is going on at RTI but too many clicks and pops on their offerings of late.
  12. Jazz CD bargains

    Yeah - mines got the Dusty credit too. Picked up in London (Rays) when it appeared for sale for a millisecond. I like those Dusty/Prestige reissue obscurities - they did the George Braith ‘Musart’ too.
  13. Sorry to hear that - they seem to be having QC problems with RTI at the moment. Discogs already has reports of problems with this one - duplicate LPs. They are very helpful on replacements so you should hopefully be fine. Mine will be with me next week so hopefully I don’t get a dud. Was able to source the Bill Evans locally so hope to collect that one by hand tomorrow. Result !
