  1. ebay madness re: vinyl

    I've noticed discogs prices going crazy too and not just vinyl.
  2. Continuum - Mad About Tadd (Palo Alto Jazz). Quite a nice date with a killer band, well recorded at the Van Gelder Studio by RVG. Slide Hampton, trombone; Jimmy Heath, saxes; Kenny Barron, piano; Ron Carter, bass; Art Taylor, drums.
  3. The Cookers

    Unfortunately, with the shipping costs to the US from the UK, this will be one very expensive LP to buy. I looked into a couple of Gearbox LPs and the shipping was around $20 per LP.
  4. Kimbrough

    I just received an E-mail from Newvelle Records which got me to buy a record in probably the fastest time in my life: Introducing KIMBROUGH: A 61 Track Collection of Jazz Composer and Teacher Frank Kimbrough’s Compositions, Featuring 67 World-Class Artists Newvelle Records is proud to release this 61-track digital anthology of Frank’s original compositions, recorded as the New York jazz scene reopened in May 2021 Available streaming everywhere and on Bandcamp: https://newvellerecords.bandcamp.com/album/kimbrough July 16, 2021 – Newvelle Records today is releasing KIMBROUGH, a collection of 61 original compositions by jazz artist and educator Frank Kimbrough, who passed away in December 2020. Featuring tributes from 67 of Frank’s former bandmates, students, and friends across multiple generations, KIMBROUGH was recorded over three and a half days in New York as the musical world began reawakening in May 2021. All proceeds from this definitive collection of Frank’s music, available on high-quality digital download on Bandcamp, will benefit the Frank Kimbrough Jazz Scholarship at The Juilliard School. The musicians: Piano: Addison Frei, Fred Hersch, Sean Mason, Elan Mehler, Samora Pinderhughes, Ben Rosenblum, Jacob Sacks, Scott Spivak, Helen Sung, Craig Taborn, Isaiah J. Thompson, Dan Tepfer, Micah Thomas, Gary Versace, Elio Villafranca, Joel Wenhardt, Glenn Zaleski Bass: Ben Allison, Jay Anderson, Alexis Cuadrado, Dezron Douglas, Michael Formanek, John Hébert, Marty Jaffe, Rob Jost, Rufus Reid, Tony Scherr, Martin Wind, Ben Wolfe Guitar: Steve Cardenas, Ben Monder, Todd Neufeld Drums: Jeff Cosgrove, Billy Drummond, Jeff Hirshfield, Tim Horner, Douglas Marriner, Allan Mednard, Francisco Mela, Tony Moreno, Clarence Penn, Rich Rosenzweig, Satoshi Takeishi, Dave Treut, Jeff Williams, Matt Wilson Clarinet: Ted Nash Alto Saxophone: Allan Chase, Alexa Tarantino, Immanuel Wilkins Baritone Saxophone: Allan Chase Tenor Saxophone: Michael Blake, Jeff Cornelius, Evan Harris, Joe Lovano, Donny McCaslin, Ted Nash, Rich Perry, Noah Preminger, Scott Robinson, Steve Wilson Trumpet: Dave Douglas, Noah Halpern, Ron Horton, Kirk Knuffke, Riley Mulherkar, Jesse Neuman Trombone: Ryan Keberle Vocals: Olivia Chindamo They're only asking $20. I paid more than that as 100% of the proceeds go to the Frank Kimbrough Jazz Scholarship at The Juliard School where Frank was a professor.

    It's from Newvelle Records. Up until now, they have only released (expensive) LPs, so we might want to consider ourselves lucky that they did it this way. BTW - they offer this music as .WAV downloads as well as FLAC, MP3, etc. You could download the .WAV versions and burn them to CD-R if you choose. Be aware that it would be a lot of CD-Rs. The .WAV download is 9.9 GB, so that is ~14 CD-Rs.

  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Ahh - I saw the CD cover and missed the little question at the end. That's what happens when you can only quote a post that is quoting another post and not include both of them.
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    You're confirming what I said - the master tape is clearly lost. My point is that the CD cover clearly states "direct from the original master tapes" when it is obviously not. The master tape is lost. A needle drop recording of an old LP is not a master tape.
  9. Teddy Edwards - It's About Time (with Les McCann Trio) (Pacific Jazz). I do like this one. I found it in a used bin and decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. It looks like a radio DJ copy. It has JB-303 written in big letters/numbers across the cover in magic marker and what looks like price stickers on each LP label. Who cares. The music is where it's at.
  10. Smoke Sessions New Releases

    Without the weird stretch, it's much better. My buddy Bob Festa took a nice one too: Alan Dawson would be proud of Joe.
  11. Smoke Sessions New Releases

    I'm sorry if Joe approved this or if it was some sort of "artistic" cover, but this is really a lousy picture. He is scrunching up his face as he looks toward the sun and squints at the camera as someone from the side snaps this. Not working for me.
  12. Next up - Frank Kimbrough... damn... the late Frank Kimbrough - Meantime (Newvelle). Frank Kimbrough on piano, Andrew Zimmerman on tenor saxophone, Riley Mulherkar on trumpet, Chris Van Voorst Van Beest on bass, and R.J. Miller on drums. I am liking this one a lot. The tenor player, Andy Zimmerman, is a new name for me. I've actually ordered Zimmerman's Newvelle LP as well, "Half Light", which has the stellar band of Zimmerman, Dave Douglas, Kevin Hays and Matt Penman on bass.
  13. Kenny Werner - Church On Mars (Newvelle). Kenny Werner on piano, Fender Rhodes, and Hammond B3 Organ, David Liebman on tenor and soprano saxophones and flute, James Genus on bass, Terri Lynn Carrington on drums, and Vivienne Aerts on vocals on "Embraceable You." A very well done record. Liebman's random squeals aren't my favorite solo device - they never have been - but the music shines through. It's a shame that it is so damn expensive though.
  14. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I have heard several of Fedchock's Reservoir CDs and they've all been very well done. I never heard this one though. I see that his 2020 release, "into the shadows" (Summit), was rated 4 stars by Brian Morton in Dowbeat. I may have to pick that one up.
  15. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    So the "original master tape" is a needle drop? Doesn't that imply that the "original" master tape is in fact lost?
  16. Percy France Memorial Website

    Great sound samples in there. He had quite the unique tone. In Bill Easley's remembrance, it looks like 1970 is written with an 'O' and not a zero. Also, in his bio, why are there some random dots? Percy France ... became a regular in those legendary uptown haunts, often jamming but frequently gigging. ... (At Minton’s Playhouse, Percy) really got ... Percy France stayed for several years, including tours, some con
  17. what are you drinking right now?

    Just finished: Now sipping:
  18. Ron retired 3 years ago: He still posts on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ron.mcmaster.92
  19. Chuck - does the CD catalog list Shorty Rogers' "Road To Rio"? If it does, what is the catalog number?
  20. Happy belated 70th birthday to Randy. He still posts on Facebook, but not here.
  21. Blue Note's TONE POET series.

    Nope. I'm done pre-ordering these LPs. I'll wait until I hear that they didn't screw up another one before they get any more of my money. They clearly have no intention of ever fixing their screw-ups and that doesn't work for me.
  22. Great Finds

    My good friend Frank worked at One Way Records for several years. They were a legit reissue label when he was there. Michael Cuscuna once told me that someone at Blue Note screwed up when they licensed Wayne Shorter's "Moto Grosso Feio" to One Way. I think they even tried to pull that back.
  23. Live Streaming Concerts

    I am asking a serious question here... Does anyone know how the publishing rights work with these live streams? I ask because I knew a guy who got into trouble because he had the audacity to play music over his bar's speaker system without making arrangements with the publishing arm of the music industry. They literally came knocking on his door with their hand out.
  24. I miss those old stores. Tweeter Etc, Fred Locke Stereo, Spearit Sound & even Lechmere, which was more of a large department store with a huge stereo department. I too bought an Onkyo receiver from Crazy Eddie when he was selling via the Stereo Review classifieds section as "Stereo Exchange". I remember having to wire the money to them. That was a scary thing for a teenager. The only reason I even did it was that I figured Stereo Review wouldn't list their classified ad if they weren't legit. How naive I was...
