Duke Ellington - Unknown Session (Columbia)
1960 septet recordings from the stockpile.  ... Another instance of Duke's utterly distinctive, everyday brilliance.

Jus about to give it a spin. A Boulez maven tells me that this is by far the best recording of Le Soleil Des Eaux, and I've heard good things about Dorati's Chronochromie and Les Bander-Log.

Just hope the used LP is in decent shape. I just bought a used Odyssey LP of works by Maderna snd Schuller, and the surface noise was louder than the admittedly rather quiet music. When I contacted the bastard third-party seller on Amazon, he  said, 'Tough s---; we didn't grade it "like new."'

 Some of the performances are a bit dated in style (though still good for the most part) but the version of Thomas Tomkins' stunning madrigal "Fusca, in thy starry eyes" is worth many times the $2 I paid for this vintage two-LP set.

Yep - an unlikely combination but seems to work well enough. I am unfamiliar with her ‘schlager’ material/style, it is about as well known here in the UK as TV showings of ‘Dinner For One’ i.e. pretty well unknown. :)

Charlie Mariano - Crystal Bells (CMP, 1980)
After buying this music on emusic.com years ago, I recently decided to upgrade to LP.  Aside from the enormous improvement in sound quality, I still enjoy collecting the "thingy" stuff, whether it's vinyl or compact discs.

Helen Merrill - Chasin' the Bird (Inner City, 1980)
Required listening for Pepper Adams aficionados.  The combination of his baritone sax and her voice is unusual, but it works really well.  I suppose some of the credit has to go to arranger Dick Katz as well.

Never seen it in this part of Europe.

 

Oops, is that political? ;)

I used to have that lp, but relinquished it in a vinyl purge.

As far as I know only Chronochomie has been reissued.

Here she be. But IIRC the CD  with all three was rather pricey so I went for the much cheaper vinyl, which plays just fine. Both the Messiaen and the Boulez seem to me to be terrific performances. Special kudos to Dorati; that piece must have been a beast to conduct, especially right out of the box in 1962 or so. His performance will take the skin off your back.

Supraphon 10", an object of no small delight!!!

Record plays well-enough too, an extra bonus, but the object is the thing here, especially the cover painting, still a nice glossy laminate on thickass cardboard, with no wear or peel to the sheen..
