  2. Happy Birthday, Kenny Burrell

    I recently picked this up; recorded in 1989. Was pleasantly surprised to see him do a version of Midnight Blue!
  3. John Jenkins Jazz Eyes (Savoy)

    The 1978 reissue Star Eyes goes for reasonable prices; I picked one up from DG not too long ago. It has 5 tracks (the 5th, not on the original Jazz Eyes, is Darn That Dream).
  4. Received today, in good condition. Thanks, Allen; can't wait to hear it.
  5. Happy Birthday, Kenny Burrell

    Happy birthday, Mr. Burrell!
  6. But there have been other live recordings from Monk's Columbia time released on different labels. For example, this on Thelonious/Hyena (Joel Dorn): Or this, on Concord: Or this, on Blue Note:
  7. I don't know that Sony is the problem. If Monk owed them a record, how was Black Lion able to release the London session? I just checked my two Giants of Jazz albums; neither say "Monk appears with kind permission of Columbia Records."
  8. Issues with my stereo

    Back when I was in high school (late '60's - early '70's), I would regularly read Stereo Review. I got a good grounding, for the time, on the basics of putting together a stereo system. I so miss that sort of source today. I recently subscribed to Stereophile, but find that their reviews of insanely-priced equipment verges on audio porn. I so wish there was a middle-class, middle-of-the-road source for audio information. Larry's Schiit Magni 3, for example, would never be covered in Stereophile. We need a source (publication, web site, whatever) that would cover: What options are currently out there? When would you use one versus another? What are the various ways you can use equipment? What are the different ways of putting together a great-sounding stereo? What are the innovations in stereo equipment? What verities have been supplanted by newer equipment? When is older equipment still good enough? That's what I'm looking for.
  9. Issues with my stereo

    I don't know; that's why I'd like to know more, and in what other situations are they useful. I see some headphone amps have tubes or tube/transistor hybrids, so maybe one purpose is to get that warm tube sound.
  10. Issues with my stereo

    No, he plugs the Schiit into his amp's "rec out" jacks (presumably to get a clean flat signal).
