  1. What Are You Watching

    Just watched episode 1 and it was good. It has been so long since I have read the books I can't be trusted as to faithfulness to those but I think there were quite a few liberties taken--still I sense this will be an entertaining show.
  2. What Are You Watching

    Got caught up on "Evil"--what a show! Now watching the premier episode of "Foundation" . . . .
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Muggsy Spanier and Bud Freeman "The Complete V-Disc Sessions" Jazz Unlimited cd
  4. #NP:Make It Up!

    "Mose Allison sings and Plays Duke Ellington" Prestige
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Mose Allison "Creek Bank" Prestige LP I love Mose on Prestige
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    "Ella at Duke's Place." Oh my. I forgot how lovely this one is in every way.

    Stan Getz Quartet with Astrud Gilberto "Live at the Berlin Jazz Festival 1966" Lost Recordings 2 cd set, disc 1 I love "Getz a Go Go" with this outfit and this one is also very very good.

    Okay. I am still unconvinced. Got an early start on listening today and re-listened to the first two discs of this set. Not all of it is "riveting" in the way that previous sets in the series have been for me--but I think the next three discs will be much more so. Sound is excellent. . . Mark Wilder and team doing a great job of mixing and mastering yet again. Bob Dylan "Springtime in New York: the Bootleg Series Vol. 16, 1980-1985"

    Okay. These are radio concerts so I think they are potentially as legit as for example the Dragon Miles Davis release; releases signed for the broadcasts seem to have provisions that bypass record company contracts. Not saying I ame totally convinced either way, also not completely satisified with the conclusion of an unnamed riessue industry person who is "pretty positive."
  10. I agree it could have been performed. . .more than twice. But dozens of times unreported? I don't think so.

    I don't believe these are bootlegs--they may be operating under European copyright laws but I can't imagine they would be full out bootlegs if a) Diavelet, which is a successful European high end audio brand would endanger themselves legally by being associated with the label from the inception and b) discogs.com would allow the sale of these on their website. https://www.discogs.com/label/1363946-The-Lost-Recordings
  12. Owning multiple copies?

    I'm guilty of owning multiple copies of a number of works I really like. And multiple cycles of Beethoven's string quartets and sonatas etc. I am not ashamed.

    My wife has been off since Thursday and is off til Thursday so not much stereo time for me at all. Snuck this one in. New expensive release from Japan of an often enough bootlegged Miles Davis concert, Tokyo July 12, 1964. I must say it sounds better than ever before. And the system sounds really good. I added a pair of Duelund resistors to the tweeters in my HR-1 speakers to good effect.
  14. King Komp

    My first thought was Jimmy Rowles. Second thought was the Duke.
  15. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Got to squeeze in two listens before I was told to come down and watch the Browns. Fats Navarro "Vol. 1 1943-1946" Masters of Jazz, France cd Andy Kirk and his Clouds of Joy tracks and Kenny Clarke and his 52nd Street Boys tracks. and Stan Getz "Live at the Berlin Jazz Festival 1966" Lost Sessions cd
  16. For me, this week, it's "Eclipse" by Mingus as performed by Dolphy on "Out There." I've always loved this composition and I remembered listening to this version years ago that I had this idea to start a label called Eclipse and require each of my artists to record that tune on every other release or some such methodology, just to get to hear different interpretations of that. This version with the clarinet and the cello. . . just beautiful and stimulating. When Eclipse Records became a success, I was going to start Equinox Records and feature the same methodology using the Coltrane composition. Hey a fella can dream can't he? Anyway, this Dolphy performance made an impact on me this week. Anyone else want to share a track that socked them?
  17. You are not in touch with reality.

    Erroll Garner "Symphony Hall Concert" Mack Avenue cd, out tomorrow (I pre-ordered from the label and received it yesterday). Very good sound! I'm really enjoying Garner of late. This is included in the new box set of Garner material released by Mack Avenue, but luckily also released separately as those who bought all the Octave/Mack Avenue releases don't necessarily need to rebuy them in the box set.
  19. From that clip I think this is going to be good.
  20. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    As good as a shot of expresso. Mac Gollehon "In the Spirit of Fats Navarro"
  21. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I can't stay away from this set. Lee Morgan "Complete Live at the Lighthouse" disc 6
