  1. Not to come across as uninformed, but what was the "Black Fire" fiasco? LWayne
  2. Mosaic partials ...

    On my wishlist is getting a new box for the Andrew Hill set. This set was made at a time when Mosaic taped the hinge between top lid and bottom. Then they printed the name of the set on the back of the tape. After repeated use, and countless openings and closings, the tape has splintered and the box top looks awful. LWayne
  3. Gary Peacock, yay!

    Enjoy his playing on "Voices" and "Eastward" LWayne
  4. Michael Formanek Quartet, Pre-Apocalyptic

    Great session from a great group. All players at their peak! LWayne
  5. Maria Schneider Orchestra - Data Lords

    I have not missed any of her releases either, This set is likely the best yet. Worth every penny! LWayne
  6. Bill Frisell--Valentine

    Heard the preview on Facebook as well. Gorgeous music! Question: any additional tracks on LP vs. CD. Any reason as to why two vinyl records instead of one? Running time? LWayne
  7. New Charles Tolliver

    A fair review ! I would agree with ranking of "go to" recordings as well. But I will enjoy "Connect" nonetheless. LWayne
  8. New Charles Tolliver

    Alas, I was at the Saturday gig. Got to spend some quality time with Charles Tolliver though. Nice guy! LWayne
  9. New Charles Tolliver

    Agree with this review. Tolliver is solid throughout and I really enjoy the version of "Emperor March". Saw this group play in An Die Musik in Baltimore at the end of February and this new CD is very evocative of that set. Highly recommended! LWayne
  10. Happy Birthday, Kenny Burrell

    Happy Birthday Kenny Burrell and best wishes for good health! LWayne
  11. BFT 196 -- THE REVEAL!!!!

    Also LOVE Kahil El Zabar. Have seen him perform in many different groups. Never disappoints. Hard to categorize his style, but certainly enjoyable! LWayne
  12. New Charles Tolliver

    Looking forward for this to drop on this Friday. No legal snafus like Monk's "Palo Allto", so hopefully not delayed... LWayne
  13. LF Mike Reed Flesh & Bone CD

    Yes. Looking for something a little less expensive. Thanks, LWayne
  14. Looking for a nice copy of Mile Reed "Flesh & Bone" on 482 Music. Released 2017. Seems to be hard-to-find. Hoping a fellow board member might be willing to sell/ trade at a reasonable price. Thanks, LWayne
  15. Ahmad Jamal

    To me, a VERY major figure. Not to say I like everything he does, but I celebrate his style. Very idiosyncratic. Instantly recognizable from the beginning that it is Jamal playing. LWayne
