  1. Fresh Sound & Lone Hill Reissues Discussion

    Yes, that's true: they're changing their policy of being as obscure as possible about sources, to giving more detailed information and even repros of the original covers (see the Lucky Thompson set of parisian Small Group Sessions, which won a French reissue project prize) as of lately.
  2. A very good box. One need only have a look at those involved.
  3. Universal Music Italia box sets

    I once read about them but they were a fan released rarity that was unavailable at the time. I didn't know anybody had rereleased them. Thanks for reminding me.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    And Jim, I'll follow your advice.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I was listening to this exact trio the other night on the Basie/Young Mosaic. Very, very good. https://www.discogs.com/Miles-Davis-The-Complete-Bitches-Brew-Sessions/master/51315 Or this longbox version, or the 40th anniversary edition. https://www.discogs.com/Miles-Davis-Bitches-Brew/release/7080006 Thanks, Mike. Now I know what to look for. I think it will be the longbox, rather than the 40th anniversary edition.
  6. Universal Music Italia box sets

    Among these there is a very fine Jim Hall live recording from 75 (I think), which I have as one of those mini-LPs Universal or Verve released domestically at the beginnings of the 2000s.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I'm on a Miles binge lately, pulling out pieces here and there. Maybe because I'm rereading his autobiography. But this is great. I'm looking out for Bitches Brew, which I don't have. Is it in one of the volumes Sony/Legacy put out in the nineties, one of which was devoted to the second quintet and others to his work with Gil Evans?
  8. Chet Baker, misjudged?

    That album is also one of my favorite Baker albums. With top shelf European musicians (Rene Thomas and Bobby Jaspar among them) and recorded in Rome in the normally weak Baker 60s it is very good.
  9. Chet Baker.

    I love that Barclay album, which must be contained in the Barclay sessions mentioned above. It's with Dick Twardzik, one of the best pianists he ever played with. But I also love the Mulligan/Baker quartet, mentioned before. Being a big Baker fan I think what I like most (as in most artists cases) are his early works.
  10. I have a Taschen edition from some years ago. Though I remember browsing through that Rock Lexikon (a combination of the drawings from Rock Dreams and a kind of rock encyclopedia) back in my school days, that went from hand to hand. It was so used that all the leaves would come apart.
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I recently got this through a third party seller frem amazon, and I really like it, specially the first session with Charlie Christian (playing unamplified here) and Meade Lux Lewis on celeste. It's a drumless session.
