UHM.jpg?1584393151

The ‘Redux’ 60th Anniversary 2LP edition. Looks like a Mark Wilder mastering, nice, big and crisp sound.  Side 4 has alternates which I don’t think are on the ‘Mosaic Complete Columbia’.

Next up - 60s Scandinavian jam featuring Don Cherry on Gearbox. 45rpm.

Missed this one the first time round. A few annoying crackles, which seems to be a common complaint with this pressing/title.

But I am now listening to Joe Henderson at Village Vanguard Vol. 1 (Tone Poet, 2020). I enjoy it a lot. Superb.

I never ever had any chance with these Bill Evans Resonance records issued in RSDs... Too bad for the pressing.

I see in the alternative universe of the Hoffmann Forum that people are currently reporting paying 60 Euro to $100 Cdn in their stores for the Evans. About 1.5 times what the stores are charging here. Outrageous !

It’s just the occasional random ‘pop’, nothing major. The Mingus was pristine though.

The sonics are excellent at 45rpm - and the music is a winner too. A find !

Much more of a straight-ahead hard bop session than expected from Don Cherry.

Indeed. The sonics are excellent. Nice release this one.

Listen to the Blues with Jimmy Rushing (Jazztone, 1956)
The cover says "with Pete Johnson and Band" -- and it's an amazing band.  Aside from Johnson, the rhythm section consists of Freddie Green, Walter Page, and Jo Jones.  On the front line you've got Emmett Berry, Rudy Powell, Buddy Tate, and Lawrence Brown.  And Rushing soars over them all.

This music feels as vital and fresh as the day it was made.  :wub:

The Jazz Odyssey of James Rushing, Esq. (Columbia, 1957)

Thanks, kh158, for prompting me to pull these LPs out with your post above.  I hadn't listened to Jimmy Rushing in a while.  A terrible oversight on my part!  ;)

Trying to decide if I want to spring for the Super Deluxe Edition that recently came out. The OG vinyl has always sounded so good to me, I want to justify the purchase but can't convince myself. The CD version I have is adequate but sounds slammed to me, unlike the vinyl which makes sense given the "newness" of cds at the time. Also trying to decide if I want to get Emancipation on vinyl given my affection for that album (strangely I know but probably my favorite Prince album) but never being happy with the cds sound.

I'm thankful I did not trigger a trombone choir themed listening party.

I actually love the trippy cover on the Barefield LP, but the music is great too.

Delightful solo piano.  Most of the music has a ruminative, "after hours" vibe -- like he's playing for himself, rather than an audience.

And note the album cover photo. It seems to capture McShann at a moment when his glance is turned inward.

Image and music in perfect alignment.
