  1. Universal Music Italia box sets

    Blue Note owns Roost and Universal owns Blue Note so.... Why don't they own Roost?
  2. Rebecca Parris - RIP

    Local Boston legend, the singer Rebecca Parris, passed away recently, shortly after performing at a local club. The Boston Globe just published her obituary: https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/obituaries/2018/06/18/rebecca-parris-jazz-singer-uncommon-range-and-emotional-depth/KLkhLdtZAoAsoMsvtnkFyM/story.html As a side note, Rebecca Parris is the mother of one of our regular posters here on the organissimo forums.
  3. The Gasoline Blues

    My latest commuter car is a 2017 Toyota Prius Prime. It's a plug-in hybrid. I've been averaging over 68 mpg with it.
  4. You really can't shop from home for used LPs. I've only ordered a few used LPs on line and they weren't in a condition that would have gotten me to buy them if they were on a store shelf. I won't buy a record with a scratch I can feel. Not worth it to me when I can just play the CD in most cases.
  5. what are you drinking right now?

    Ayinger Hefeweiss.
  6. Stock is way down at all of the stores I go to these days. Too many buyers. Not enough sellers.
  7. Jimmy Smith

    That may be true, but if an artist was under contract to a record label, the owner of the recording would have to get permission to release this for it to be legal. I believe that technically, the artist's label owns the rights to release it.

    Regarding the Club Baby Grand recordings... according to Cuscuna: "I really don’t remember, but I think I never found the Baby Grand outtakes. Most likely, the material is not in the can. Whatever I got for discography listings probably came from Alfred’s session notes".
  9. Happy Birthday Kevin Bresnahan!

    Thanks everyone. I had a great night with my girls.
  10. somethin' else (label) SHM-CD reissues

    No "Fire And Love" in this list... I'm surprised they didn't go for a few of the real rarities in here like Joe Lovano's "Tenor Time", Benny Green's "Blue Notes" (or "Funky") or Renee Rosnes' "Face To Face" (unfortunately only an EP). I do like George Adams' "Nightingale" where he proves that he can wrangle a Jazz ballad out of "Bridge Over Troubled Water". Although all of George's somethin' else CDs are worth hearing. Ralph Peterson's "V" (I think "5" is a typo) is an excellent recording. I may have to pick up Phil Woods' "Cool Woods" and maybe that Hino disc for Greg Osby.
  11. Phil Woods R.I.P.

    What a great show that must have been. You're lucky you got to see that. I never got to see Lacy or Land.
  12. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    I don't like paying vinyl prices for an LP pressing that's basically using a CD as the source. If it's full analog, I'll pay the extra money. If not, tell me and I'll buy the CD. Renee Rosnes' latest release came out on vinyl. When I found out that it was full digital, I just ordered the CD. I still get to hear it, just not on vinyl. The vinyl resurgence should die quickly if all they keep cutting is a vinyl representation of the CD.
  13. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    If they would say how the vinyl is cut (analog or digital), I would order that. But like most vinyl today, no one wants us to know. I am not buying an LP of a track played back digitally. I'll buy the CD instead.
  14. Phil Woods R.I.P.

    I asked Phil how he was doing with his emphysema at one of his shows and he said that he wished that he had never smoked. He said he had trouble taking a breath and that he needed oxygen when he got off stage. At his later shows, he started playing with an oxygen tube.
  15. Phil Woods R.I.P.

    Good catch. Phil is not smoking in that picture.
