  1. Yep, this set. As I posted earlier in the stream, I've been thinking of pre-ordering this set for about a month. Seeing the count down of available sets finally made me pull the trigger.
  2. I first got an email from Bandcamp about this set back on May 6, so it's been around a while.
  3. Ok, so I just (finally) ordered this. I've been on the fence for a while on this one. I really liked the "Standards Quartet" series of CDs that were recorded in 2003. Liked the Charlie Parker set as well. So, I guess there's one fewer that's available now...
  4. RIP Chick Corea

    As I mentioned earlier in this thread, I started listening to RTF back in the mid ‘70s when I was I high school. I noticed that Chick always thanked L. Ron Hubbard on the back of the album covers. I also remember seeing commercials on TV back then advertising “Dianetics”. Out of curiosity, I checked the book out from the local library. It didn’t make a lot of sense to me, so I dropped it. Kept following the music though…
  5. RIP Chick Corea

    Well, what I meant to say was that Scientology was the biggest reason Chick broke the band up. Interesting Di Meola interview here...
  6. RIP Chick Corea

    I believe in the mid-70s version of RTF, Corea and Clarke were scientologists but White and Di Meola were not. Di Meola always believed this was the biggest reason why Chick broke up the band.
  7. RIP Chick Corea

    This does hit hard. My first initiation into jazz was Return To Forever (with Dimeola/White/Clarke) when I was in high school. Over the years I've listened to (and mostly loved) all of his other stuff. I got to see him play live many times. RIP indeed...
  8. Live Streaming Concerts

    On 10/23 Charles Lloyd will be streaming from his "home theater" (the Lobero in Santa Barbara, CA) with Gerald Clayton and Anthony Wilson. The Lobero is a wonderful old theater that's had a great jazz series for decades. Hope this - and concerts like it - can help them stay in business.
  9. Ken Vandermark

    Well, what can I tell ya. At the time it seemed like the thing to do...
  10. Ken Vandermark

    My interest really peaked when I got the Vandermark 5 "Alchemia" live boxed set (12 CDs, if I remember right). I'm sure it's way OOP now. Lots of really good stuff on there that I still go back to.
  11. Ken Vandermark

    I was really into the Vandermark 5 some years ago. My entry point was "Elements of Style, Exercises in Surprise" with some free-bop and some just free. I think I heard the song "Knock Yourself Out" somewhere and was kind of intrigued.
  12. Got my shipping notice a couple of days ago (after ordering it on the first day it was offered). I almost missed the shipping notice since it was sent from, which went straight into my spam folder.
  13. What's next for Mosaic

    Noticed this on the Mosaic Gazette today: "The team of Lee Morgan and Hank Mobley was made in Blue Note heaven. Kindred spirits with contrasting personalities, they made an amazing amount of gorgeous, soulful music together in the ‘50s and ‘60s. David Brent Johnson has seen fit to celebrate their partnerships on his Night Lights program. Interestingly, a number of his musical choices were tracks left unissued until after their deaths, which Mosaic Records is revisiting with our set The Complete Hank Mobley Blue Note Sessions 1963-1970. Everything and anything they did together is of value and merit. And a ‘60s Morgan Mosaic set should follow next year!"
  14. Paul Bley's Daughter dies in car crash

    This is a local story for me. I've driven that highway many times. Apparently they've filed murder charges against the driver who caused the collision.
