Andrew Hill "Point of Departure" (Blue Note, NY USA stereo w/ "ear") After dealing with a rather dull sounding Japanese Toshiba LP for over 20 years it's a great joy to finally get this original stereo USA issue with plastylite mark in NM condition for a reasonable price (around $100). Sounds remarkable...

Same version I've got !

It's heavy though I suppose at the end of the day, all their records, whether duos or ensembles, are "of a piece."

Dexter Gordon ---------Our Man in Paris -----------(BN) Music Matters 33

This is still probably my favourite Dexter album. It was my first as I recall. This new edition is up to the usual MM standards and sounds fantastic. I'll be keeping the CD for the bonus track which i love as much as the rest of the album.

Bennie Green--------Swings the blues-------(MVM)

1959 date on the cheapest of budget labels. Pressing makes most Jazzlands seem pristine. None the less, strong playing by Bennie, Jimmy Forrest and Sonny Clark. None of the band are credited on the label/cover.

Amanaz - Africa - (Now Again, US reissue)

great remastering although the pressing could be better. Still, what a great album.

I picked that up on RSD but haven't spun it yet. Which version do you prefer?

I actually like the version with less reverb - which surprised me. Had the crappy Shadoks boot, which was pretty dim-sounding.

Southland_Yonder_FrontBlue.jpg

Earlier today:

Dixieland Way Down Yonder in New Orleans (GHB). Okay, this looks grim, but the music is great. It was originally a 10" album by New Orleans trombonist Jack Delaney on the Southland label. By the time it got reissued on GHB (Jazzology's "New Orleans" label before they aquired American Music), it was given a new cover with Pete Fountain's name and picture. And while the GHB is a 12" LP, it still only has the original four tracks on each side - about 24 minutes of music total. But like I said, the music is really good. Side one has a 1955 session with Alvin Alcorn on trumpet and Pete Fountain at his Irving Fazola-inspired best. Side two is a 1953 session with Raymond Burke on clarinet and the great Lee Collins on trumpet - his last recording, I believe. I sound this at the late, lamented Magic Bus on Conti Street in the French Quarter back in the 1990s when I was trying to get as complete a Lee Collins collection as possible.

Not "grim" at all! What's not to like about traditional music from New Orleans?!?!?! :)

Oh, everybody here knows that I love New Orleans music. I just meant that the title is pretty off-putting, and the abitrary credit to Pete Fountain, who is only a sideman on one side, is misleading and annoying.
