  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Greg Osby, "Inner Circle" Blue Note cd. This one continues to grow on me.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Goro Ito/Jacques Morelenbaum "Rendezvous in Tokyo" I've had this cd on repeat as I pop in and out and listen this weekend, experiencing the new Windom OS for my DAC. Beautiful music, with interesting arrangements and the lovely lovely voice of the lovely Paula Morelenbaum.
  3. Duke Pearson - The Phantom

    This is a great date and it's too bad it's so hard to find at the moment. I wouldn't call it the "best" of the Mosaic Select as I really like all the sessions on those discs, though all the others are better than the Christmas album, which is okay but Christmas music doesn't get a lot of play here. Hutcherson makes the date special for me, and it's well-recorded.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    It's very nice. I'm not a huge Pepper fan, but this is very well-mastered and well-presented.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Miles Davis/Gil Evans "Porgy 'n Bess" Mobile Fidelity Lab SACD
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This new Pepper set sounds very good. I'm not a huge Pepper fan, but these quartets are good listening.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I love this and have neglected to spin it for too long. Cassandra Wilson "Coming Forth by Day" Blue Note Japan SHM-CD
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    A new arrival. . . . Barney Wilen Quartet "Live in Tokyo '91" Followed by Art Pepper "So In Love" from the new "Complere Artist House Recordings" box set
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Nat Birchall Quartet "The Storyteller" Very good sound, wonderful music.
  10. Eddie Bert

    I have them both on separate discs. Bert was a great player. And Kenny Clarke!
  11. I managed to find a very well-priced set of these SACDs discounted because the binding in the folios had come undone. Beautiful sound. I am only intimately familiar with two other complete cycles of these sonatas, but I think the playing is very good.
  12. Record Store Day - Black Friday 2019

    From Zev Feldman's facebook page, fourth album discussed: QUADRUPLE PLAY for RSD BLACK FRIDAY! I'm spreading the love for Record Store Day Black Friday this year with a quartet of recordings I produced for 3 different record labels. ALL available, Friday, Nov. 29th: For Resonance, we have the first vinyl edition of our widely acclaimed release by the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra "All My Yesterdays: The Debut 1966 Recordings at the Village Vanguard" and, back by popular demand, a new 2LP gatefold pressing for the first time at 33 1/3 RPM of Bill Evans "Live at Art D'Lugoff's Top of the Gate" feat. Eddie Gomez and Marty Morell from 1968 in NYC. Both of these albums are were recorded by Resonance founder and co-president, George Klabin, and are being released as limited-edition, hand-numbered sets mastered by the legendary Bernie Grundman and pressed at RTI on 180g black vinyl. More info at resonancerecords.org On Cory Weeds' Reel To Real label, I'm thrilled to present a previously-unissued 1962 recording of Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis & Johnny Griffin called "OW! - Live at the Penthouse" with pianist Horace Parlan, bassist Buddy Catlett and Art Taylor on drums. Boasting remastered audio from the original 10" tapes, "OW!" comes with an extensive booklet including rare photos; essays by noted writer Ted Panken, pianist Michael Weiss; plus interviews with saxophonist James Carter, drummer Kenny Washington and more! More info at cellarlive.com Last, but not least, a never-before-released 1969 STUDIO album from the legendary Brazilian jazz-bossa group Tamba 4 called "California Soul" on Elemental Music. Originally produced by jazz icon Creed Taylor for A&M Records and recorded by Rudy Van Gelder at his studio, "California Soul" was set to be the follow up to the album "Samba Blim," but the release was shelved and 50 years later is finally seeing the light of day thanks in large part to the efforts of DJ Greg Caz. The limited-edition 180g LP is mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearant audio and pressed by Memphis Press. More info at www.elemental-music.com
  13. Record Store Day - Black Friday 2019

    There's a previously unreleased Tamba 4 album made for A&M coming out. . . that should be a good one.
