  1. Same here. I already own different Resonance sets and am very satisfied with them. They're on a par with Mosaic, with good booklets, good notes and overall concepts. Plus the high quality of annotators and collaborators.
  2. That one must be really good. I have another equivalent that's absolutely brilliant: And I was in Togo in the 80s.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I also have this and like it very much.
  4. Complete Cuban Jam Sessions

    Very good piece.
  5. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    A set I like very much. And one with which I learned to like Joe Pass more than I already did.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    From the LPR collection though I have it as a digipack. With Dave Burns, Ray Copeland, Chick Corea and Willie Bobo on the first session only. It comprises 3 sessions. One with Attila Zoller.
  7. That's the way I see them and use them too.
  8. I used to be one too in my teens, in the seventies. First reaction when I saw this I thought it was that movie about that fateful season with the Lauda accident and the great Lauda Hunt rivalry, 1975 or 76 IIRC. And that movie I've seen, in TV some years ago.
  9. João Gilberto RIP

    Will have to check that! And, by the way, I forgot to mention in my earlier posts what a big loss this is. I have always liked and admired Gilberto. Even his daughter Bebel was great in her early 2000s heyday.
  10. João Gilberto RIP

    Yes this one is also called Joao Gilberto aka Aguas de marco and I think is from 73. Yes that's the one I was referring to. The Legendary Joao Gilberto. And my favourite tracks would be O pato (the duck) and Bolinha de papel (paperball) from his second and third album, respectively. And Dave, the second album you mentioned is the same as the first, only from a different (Spanish, from the Freshsound family ) label.
  11. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    One of the Selects I own I like most. Specially the Street Swingers album, as I've said before. With Jim Halll and Jimmy Raney!
  12. João Gilberto RIP

    Oh, thanks. I thought it was a double, but I don't have it.
  13. João Gilberto RIP

    Wow, hadn't heard about this. But my three favourite Gilberto albums are his first three: Chega de Saudade, O amor o sorriso e a flor and Joao Gilberto (1961). They were recorded for EMI Odeon and sometime in the early nineties were released together by EMI in a double CD, called something with Joao Gilberto (I don't remember the exact title right now).
  14. Agreed and recommended in both cases. Ted Gioa's book on West Coast Jazz is also recommended. As is his study about blues Delta blues.
