  1. Douglas Edwards: a "vintage" CBS news reporter.
  2. Mosaic plans Beehive box

    I've had the Hartman album since it came out and it's one of his strongest dates, IMO.
  3. There's an interesting festival that's been happening in Knoxville, TN called the Big Ears Festival. It's not a "Jazz Festival" per se, but blends several different genres. This year they had such diverse acts as Wilco, Carla Bley and Henry Threadgill. I'm already planning for next year's dates in March.
  4. Mosaic Records a seller on Ebay?

    Looks like Cuscuna is unloading some stock on ebay.
  5. Clifford Jordan-Strata East Mosaic

    Besides being music that will probably be hard to find, the clips sounded really good to me!
  6. The Nessa Juggernaut rolls on

    Will there be a "bundle" offer for the CDs and T-shirt?
  7. Tim Berne's Snakeoil US Tour Dates

    I already have a ticket for the SFJAZZ show. It's a very small venue, too ... should be great!
  8. Amazon Prime Day

    I didn't see much of anything worth buying.
  9. Me FOUR! The notice said: "Please note that we are behind in shipping and we expect to ship your order in about 7 days."
  10. King Crimson

    I saw them a couple of years ago for the first time. Really enjoyed it. Even though they played a couple of the "hits", it didn't seem like an oldies act to me.
  11. Agreed about "The Free Slave" with the all-star cast of Woody Shaw, George Coleman, Hugh Lawson and Cecil McBee! Not to mention a smokin' version of Cecil's "Will Pan's Walk".
  12. I was seeing if I could find any current info on Cuscuna and stumbled on this interesting 5 1/2 minute monologue by him about his approach to reissues. Check it out.
  13. I think the discussion here was that "old people" are the only ones going to see jazz. I'm not saying that younger fans are going to see the older musicians. I don't see them at those shows, either. But I think there IS a new generation of jazz or jazz-influenced artists out there who are appealing to younger audiences.
  14. Good to see this thread again. If anyone's interested, both Compost albums are available for streaming on Amazon Music.
  15. I think there's a new interest in jazz as personified by Kamasi Washington and groups like Snarky Puppy and their offshoots. I've been to shows by both that were packed ... with a large percentage of enthusiastic "young people."
