Evan Parker, John Edwards, Chris Corsano - The Hurrah [OtoRoku]

I'm still waiting to hear if my copy has been shipped. I appreciate that they are a small concern but they've been exceptionally poor communicators. I paid for my copy over 13 months ago and have only had updates as I've repeatedly chased them up. Now the thing is out I've nothing again.?

That is poor indeed. I tend to get prompt replies from the shop manager Mark but maybe that's because I'm usually about to spend money with them

It probably doesn't help to know that copies are on display at the venue

The Jazz Couriers in Concert Featuring Ronnie Scott and Tubby Hayes

MI0003164720.jpg

 

Nice one.  I was there, my first jazz concert.  The Couriers were supporting Dave Brubeck.

damn - that's pretty incredible.

A great concert and sure a wonderful way to familiarise yourself with jazz!

I gave it another spin tonight, my 50+ years old copy has a beautiful sound!

A new audiophile pressing is currently being cleared out at Elusive Disc for $10.00.

It arrived today and is a great release up to their usual high standards. Communication needs to improve to say the least. By beef was not the delay but being kept in the dark.

Don Patterson - Mellow Soul (Prestige). Green label Van Gelder pressing. Patterson, organ; David 'Fathead' Newman, tenor sax & flute; Billy James, drums. Not the best sounding RVG recording I've heard. For some reason, the reverb is off the charts, making the band sound like they're playing in a airplane hanger. It's worse on side 1. I do like Newman's "Head". Overall, this one won't get on the turntable too often.

The Bobby Jaspar Quartet - At Ronnie Scotts - 1962 (Mole Jazz). Jaspar, tenor sax & flute; Rene Thomas, guitar; Benoit Quersin, bass; Daniel Humair, drums. Recorded in 1962 but not released until 1986. Dusty live sound but acceptable... better than many bootlegs. I bought this even though I'm not usually a fan of dusty-sounding live dates but I just like Jaspar's sound. He does not disappoint.

Can someone tell me why this CD version adds 3 tracks from the session but drops the LP track
"It Could Happen To You"?

 

Pepper Adams, Encounter (Prestige). Love the lineup on this one: Zoot Sims, Tommy Flanagan, Elvin Jones and Ron Carter.

Love this one too. It gets played often.

Hidehiko Matsumoto, The First by Sleepy (Toshiba). Nice 1977 date by one of Japan's more renowned tenor saxophonists. Liner notes are unintentionally hilarious going into obsessive details over the direct to disc recording process. 

Billy Harper, Knowledge of Self (Denon). A recent purchase and the first Harper leader date I've picked up. There's a lot of love for Billy Harper on this board and I can see why--a great one.

Thanks Clifford. No.2 is consistently more expensive so I'll stick enjoying No.1 for a while longer

Yusef Lateef - The Phoenix And The Centaur [Prestige]

Woody Shaw - Love Dance [Muse]

the first made me think of the second. Not sure why, maybe the brass voicings. Anyway both are my favourite leader dates by each musician I think, for today at least
