What vinyl are you spinning right now??

50,190 posts in this topic

Had a Japanese press of that Jym Young LP many years ago but got rid of it because it didn't really do much for me.  I'll have to dig out my CDR some day and see if my ears are more receptive to it these days!

Tonight's spins:

Kenny Burrell "on view at the five spot" (Blue Note, 47 w 63rd mono)

Takeru Muruoka "Takeru" (Philips, Japan)

Bobby Bradford / Frode Gjerstad / Ingebrigt Haaker Flaten and Frank Rosaly - recorded the day before Silver Cornet.

how does it compare? I don't mean which is better but rather  does it have a different feel , mood or style etc.  I'm impatient to know as my copy hasn't arrived yet.

great album!  Been at least 15 years since I played it..a nice reminder to dig it out again!  "Springbird" and "etiquette" are worth hunting for too

It is obviously from the same tour but it does have differences including a surprise in the final track. I had a number of concerts to choose from (Houston, Buffalo, Philadelphia and Baltimore) and this was my second choice.  YMMV.

Steve Lacy - Stamps (Hat Hut). Still not on CD, I think.

Milt Jackson - Bags and Flutes (Atlantic stereo). First hearing of this in probably over 20 years. The first wife was a flute aficionado and a Milt Jackson fan, and had this one. I recently found a nice copy.

Carsten Meinert kvartet "To You" (MS, fredricksberg reissue). Finally bought this reissue after searching in vain for a reasonably priced original for many years..this reissue sounds fantastic..excellent music and quality pressing/sound.

Barney Wilen "Barney" (RCA, Japan). At $25 much cheaper then an original, and sounds great.  An excellent record!! Really enjoyed this one..great music.

Yamashta & the Horizon "sunrise from west sea" (Liberty, Japan). Have not played this in over 10 years..a fantastic album with Masahiko Sato and Takehisa Kosugi..stunning sound quality and performance.

"To You" is a great album. I have the Spectator issue which came out immediately after the private label original. I'm verry happy with it, but a high quality reissue could be useful.

The Yamsh'ta with Kosugi is stunning. Every bit as essential as the Taj Mahal Travellers records, which have been reissued/bootlegged to death... BTW: it's on the London (Japan) label, not Liberty.

The Meinert is awesome. The Fredriksberg pressing, licensed from Meinert himself, sounds amazing. I would be happy with a clean Spectator copy if I could find one... especially one of the hand-colored copies! But it'll still set you back around $500 at this point...

oops yes London label indeed..I swear I'm losing brain cells everyday!

Agreed a fantastic album that I don't play often enough..first heard it around 20 years ago via a local hippie collector that had it.  A few years later I found a mint copy for myself!

I didn't know about the hand coloured copies, but there are some small black & white drawings on the cover which you can colour yourself.

Roswell Rudd - The Definitive Roswell Rudd (Horo). Overdubbed trombones, piano, bass, drums, and vocals.

Jerome Richardson - Going to the Movies (United Artists mono). Prompted by someone else here (Clifford, I think) spinning this recently. It's very nice - the tunes are all from movie soundtracks, but treated interestingly and uncompromisingly.

Yeah, that Richardson is really good. I bet it sounds better in mono; the lo-fi stereo separation doesn't do it a lot of favors.

Would love to get that Rudd someday - pretty tough to find!

Now;

Han Bennink - Solo East/West - (SAJ, GER orig)

Joe Henderson w/Masabumi Kikuchi, Terumasa Hino "in concert" (Philips, Japan). Had a single sleeve later issue that I sold over 10 years ago.  Found the original gatefold recently for dirt cheap and I really like it now..probably because my stereo system back then wasn't nearly as good as it is now!  

Francois Tusques "free jazz" (Columbia/Disques Moulodji, Japan) another recent score - white label promo with OBI..mint vinyl and a fraction of what an original would have cost me..let alone finding a clean original!

Nice - would certainly have grabbed a Japanese pressing but I did luck out on an affordable, clean original maybe a year ago (after searching for something like 15 years!).  I believe those Japanese Mouloudjis are promo-only and that no commercial version was released.

Zo-Ko-Ma------(BASF)

 

Pretty sublime offering apart from the electronic sax effects on Konitz's great playing . Sat in the can for 8 yrs before a 1976 release , wonder why?
