  1. Upcoming Uptown Records releases

    Looks cool. Thanks for the headsup.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Incredible sound. Awesome music.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Listening to this excellent date, though not in the edition pictured, in the new Jazz In Paris release edition. Seems to be the non-RVG Blue Note release tweaked a bit in the mastering. Love Bud and Kenny with Dex! I confess I never noticed the difference in the lyrics. . . . Interesting that both "Watch the River Flow" and "When I Paint my Masterpiece," recorded at the same session, are about "writer's block". . . .
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Today's Dylan break: Greatest Hits Vol.2, the SACD version mastered by Steve Hoffman.I've always loved the tunes with Happy Traum that were never released before this issue, and the track that was only a single side, "Watchin' the River Flow" and the outtake from that session that had never been issued, "When I Paint My Masterpiece." That's the reason I bought the album when it was a new release, and they still hold up really well.
  5. Les Liaisons Dangereuses

    I read elsewhere today (can't find where so far) that just snippets were used in the film; this is going to greatly increase the music available. I'm ready!
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Listening to my old LP. . .the "Lonely Fire" side. Just enough age and surface noise to make me know it's my old LP but sounds SO good. So much better than the cds.

    Yes. Listening to Soul Jazz right now.

    Actually they are now not digipaks, but really slim gatefold paper sleeves with the cd tightly tucked into the back piece.
  11. Les Liaisons Dangereuses

    Awesome news! Thanks bluesoul!
  12. Jazz In Paris

    Now playing Hank Mobley, "The Flip" (Jazz in Paris version released this month). Seems to match the mastering of the Connoisseur edition released by Blue Note in 2003; this edition has a production credit of 2003 for Blue Note Records, though it does say "Mastering coordinated by Francois de Xuan". . . . Too bad they didn't use the recent Japanese mastering . . . that is superior. Earlier today I played "Hard Bop" and "Django Reinhardt plays Django"--both sound excellent to me on my system.
  13. I really have never shared the enthusiasm so many do for "Blues and the Abstract Truth". . . I think it's alright but not the cat's meow. I first thought to add this album. . . I love it, it has so much of what I love of Ellington's work within it and it has beautiful sound. And I would include this Coltrane album on a list of jazz albums to experience. From first note to last it shows why this quartet was so influential, and it is music that has kept revealing subtleties to me over the decade. And any such review would need an Armstrong album. There are many possibilities. . . I love this one, a working band cutting a record while on tour, camaraderie and joy and artistry captured on tape:

    Lucy is enjoying the music so I've been selecting LPs she'd like. (Yes, Willie plays a Fender Jazzmaster on this one, sounds really nice). followed by
