Miles Davis - Porgy and Bess - under the direction of Gil Evans on Columbia.

I like this almost as much as the Louis Armstrong/Ella Fitzgerald performing this beautiful musical.

Miles' take has a marvelous list of personnel, including Philly Joe Jones on drums.

I have these two, plus a really interesting version featuring Ray Charles and Cleo Laine.

Yeah, I guess the DMM factor is the problem with OJC LPs. They just never sound 'right' to me. I'll even take a blue label Prestige reissue (or a purple New Jazz), but even those are tough to come by in nice shape. Don't think I have any of the twofers anymore - went out with a major culling a few years back, along with a lot of other things I'd forgotten about...  :mellow:

Interesting. According to a member of a different listserve, most OJC's, at least the US variety are actually analog mastered despite what is printed on the spine or cover. He works for Fantasy and has been involved in the reissue program and vouches for US pressed OJC's only, he did not have any info on the German based OJC's. Assuming he is correct, the problem with OJC's may not be mastering, but the horribly thin pressings and vinyl quality!

At one point, someone on the list actually contributed a posting on how to determine the age of OJC pressings. I'll post it if I can find it.

Death Cab for Cutie - Plans. Nice major label "debut" cut on three sides with a bonus track on the fourth.

Paul Weller - Illumination.

Lou Donaldson - LD +3. Japanese Toshiba.

I've always thought the older versions with paste-on jackets were better-sounding, but for sure I'd rather have blue-labels at the least. New Jazz pressings, on the other hand, are better left to OJCs, Japanese and CDs!

Hmmm. Not only have you now got a Mobley vinyl set but also it would appear a A. Hill vinyl set.

Grrrrr. - It shouldn't be allowed !!!!!! :g

Dave "Fingers" McKenna-Chiaroscuro- beautifully recorded

Charles Mingus- My favourite quintet- Liberty- very nice session

Omer Simeon- Decca ( Ace of Hearts comp)

Lionel Hampton - Live- Fontana- 1954 session ( ?verve) has Nat Adderley playing but you'd never know it, Hampton hogs almost all the solos

Just found a mint copy of A.Hill double album ONE TO ONE at my local shop. I already knew 10 February 1965 session, but I never listen to the 1 August 1969 and 16 & 23 January sessions. I presume all these music, and more, is on Mosaic select now. Should I get it? YESSSS!! :excited:
