What vinyl are you spinning right now??

One of the three from the label I have. Along with Bley's Axis also solo

Easily one of my favorite Bley dates, and the first one I bought years ago.

Now spinning on my 'table:

The Pee Wee Russell Quartet - New Groove (Columbia, 1963)
Another LP from a recent dollar bin haul.  It was covered in dust when I found it, but -- after a couple spins on the record vac -- it sounds great.  The audio fidelity of the mono LP really is astonishing -- especially since I'd only heard the music previously via YouTube.  (There aren't any production credits on the cover.  Fred Plaut, I wonder?) ... Music-wise, it's not typical Pee Wee.  The quartet is more reminiscent of a Mulligan piano-less group -- or Jimmy Giuffre with Bob Brookmeyer -- than anything you'd normally associate with Pee Wee.  But it's always fun to hear Russell's clarinet -- in any setting.  ;)

I’ve got an old mono pressing of that one and I agree, it sounds great.

This one from a past RSD. Good stuff.

Really strong straight up bop from a guy who is known for a few records with McGriff and more than a few on Pablo as last leader of Basie's reed section.

Sun Ra "Solar Myth Approach, Vols. 1 and 2" Corbett v. Dempsey 2 cd set, disc 1

R-2858779-1574705892-5420.jpeg.jpg

Hard to describe how transformed this release is by the new mastering. . . it never sounded half this good before.

Then on to a new fave, Marcela Mangebeira "Simples". . . a Brazilian singer doing bossa nova with new elements, not unlike Paul Morelenbaum has done this century as well. I totally dig this cd.
