Charles Mingus - Let My Children Hear Music [CBS]

Mingus was my entry point to Jazz and for many years top of my listening pile. Having just acquired this I realise quite how long it is since I've listened to him. Far too long. Time for a reacquaintance. Superb music and playing

Bill Dixon - 7-tette - (Savoy, US orig)

Nice!  Just have a French BYG issue of this..a good reminder to upgrade to an original.  I do have a minty original of his other Savoy date with Archie Shepp.

Earlier:  Jackie McLean "destination out" (Blue Note, mono NY USA) it took me about 3 or 4 copies, but I finally found a truly mint copy with no clicks or pops or crackles!  Call me obsessive, but this is one of my all time favorite blue notes and I needed a perfect copy!

Right now:  Freedom Unity "something" (Liberty, Japan red vinyl promo copy).  A heavy Japanese rarity..a recent acquisition.  Killer album...

Those Freedom Unity LPs are extremely rare. Never even seen Something for sale other than the CD reissue.

Destination Out! is one of the best jazz records ever. Could use a cleaner copy myself, but what can you do...?

Pick up the Music Matters 2x45rpm in glorious stereo !

Grant Green 'Live At The Lighthouse' (BN UA blue/white label 2LP). Thinish vinyl but excellent sonics, capturing well the Lighthouse atmosphere.

Horace Silver 'The Stylings of Silver' (BN NY USA DG both sides, ear)

Yeah, I just can't bring myself to buy those MM titles. I have a stereo Liberty that I've owned for many years - pulled it out recently and it didn't sound or look as good as I remembered (I think my young ears didn't mind the surface noise, counterintuitively).

Failing that, the King pressing of 'Destination Out!' is pretty nice..

Just out of curiosity I've popped my copy of the Music Matters on deck. Spinning Moncur's 'Love and Hate' the first thing that comes across is the incredible sonic detail of Roy Haynes' tom toms and brushes. Can't recall the original LP ever capturing that in such fidelity but I'll check against the NY USA for further impressions. Can't go wrong with the MM - although the frequent disk turning may well be a negative !

I have an audiophile friend who owns the entire 45rpm series so I have heard it and agree it sounds fantastic!  I also have the King pressing, a stereo orig, and the old Connoisseur CD...

Just checking against my NY USA stereo 'ear' copy. Also a very pleasant listening experience. For 'character' and bite it has the edge I think but for sonic level of detail the MM wins. Either way, both are great.

Thinking about it - I have this one on Conn and Mosaic Select CDs, a Pathe Marconi LP, King LP, NY USA and Music Matters. Dammitt - I need a Liberty.. :lol:

Sidewinder - I have the Liberty that I'll happily swap for any of the other LP versions, apart from the Pathe, to help you out ;)

Yeah, I stopped keeping doubles+ of albums years ago, even ESP cover variations. The only double I did keep was a Barry Guy solo on Incus with an original Alan Davie print set into the cover design as a 'custom' job.

I love that Rendell album!

Yeah, makes an interesting contrast after the McLean/Moncur. Wonder what became of Peter Shade?
