  1. Does Oscar Peterson get a bad rap?

    I like a lot of Oscar's playing. I think the "London House" set is a great set of a working band in situ and some exciting playing from all three of the trio. I like his early work too, the earliest stuff that is on an RCA set and on a Hip-O-Select set. The man is a part of jazz history, in part because of his service as "house pianist" for Granz's JATP period and in part for his status as a popular artist in the genre in the 'fifties and 'sixties and beyond. Decided to play this one, which I like a lot.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Off to spend the day with my Dad. This is a good send off! "Lonely Woman" will remain a timeless classic. Ornette Coleman "Shape of Jazz To Come" Warner Japan cd.
  3. Miles on Columbia

    I have many Miles Davis discs, and even though I have culled the collection considerably. . . still have a lot. There are Japanese releases that sound considerably better than any of the US release, at least to me in my system, and I will keep them and listen to them when I want to hear that music.
  4. Miles Live Evil multi hybrid SACD

    I noticed this as an eBay item the first week of November and in essence pre-ordered it through that seller, one I trusted. Looking forward to this! The Bitches Brew two channel mastering was excellent and anticipate this one will be as well.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Joe Henderson "Lush Life," Verve cd. "Isafahan" is a beautiful performance.
  6. Are you talking about "The Congregation" . . . that's a quartet session with Sonny Clark.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Ray Benson! The man swings. Right now Tia Fuller, "Diamond Cut." Joe Henderson fans will particularly like her "Joe'n Around."
  8. I never became a Bruce Springsteen fan. In part he came up when I was head over heels seeking out jazz and fusion and still in the thrall of classic blues. And also in part that in my then "private Idaho" the people really into Bruce . . . were people I wasn't very impressed with or flat disliked. I definitely don't dispute his talent. The "E Street" stuff has never grabbed me but whenever I have heard or seen Bruce alone with a guitar, electric especially, I recognize that's how I like him best.
  9. Honest to gosh I avoid blows to the head and brain cell destroying things and I have a pretty darned good memory, not "photographic," but pretty darned good. I read those booklets a few times before storing them, and I remember what I need to from them. I do on occasion pluck a few out to peruse while going through the sets, they are in climate controlled storage and in a cabinet I can access easily.
  10. I can see this happening. If I were to pass this week and my wife were to have to deal with my collection she'd see the discs first and sell those and then later find all the boxes and booklets in storage. . . .
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    So nice to have the stereo warmed up again! Listened to Miles Davis "Kind of Blue" from the Columbia Mono Albums box set Miles Davis "Miles Ahead" from the Columbia Mono Albums box set Art Pepper "At the Village Vanguard" disc 3 from the Complete Village Vanguard Recordings box set
  12. "Domination" fell in the domain of another record conglomeration at the time. I really find myself less and less interested in Nelson arranging as time goes by. His playing though is something to marvel at.
  13. LPs that have never made it into CD

    Yes, that's the one I was thinking of, it's out on cd from Europe, I have the LP as well. I was confusing the title with this one I have and love on Bell Records from '61
  14. LPs that have never made it into CD

    I adore the Pee Wee Russell on Dot Records "Pee Wee Russell Plays (Pee Wee Russell)" . . .It has been out on a European cd coupled with another Russell LP. Sound is pretty darned decent.
