Is the Manne cd the Son of Gunn date?

No. Recorded 5 months later, with an even worse cover. :D

Joe Gordan and Kamuca instead of Condoli and Geller.

Where do you see this? I don't see it on their website. Do you know any of their plans to release 20-bit K2's?

Where do you see this? I don't see it on their website. Do you know any of their plans to release 20-bit K2's?

You can find it on the news page:

Concord Records, Inc. has announced (12/1) its acquisition of Fantasy; the two companies have been merged into a new entity called the Concord Music Group, Inc.

During the lengthy negotiations this summer and fall, longtime Fantasy president Ralph Kaffel has noted, "we got to know the principals and key employees of Concord quite well, which reaffirmed the correctness of our initial judgment that Concord is the proper home for our catalogs. Having spent fifty years in the record business, 33 of them at Fantasy building up the catalogs, my primary concern--as well as that of the other principals--was that the acquiring entity should have the proper understanding and respect for the treasure that we are turning over to them, and be willing to perpetuate the historical legacy these catalogs represent. With Norman Lear, Hal Gaba, Glen Barros, and all the other talented people now at the helm of the Concord Music Group, my colleagues and I are convinced the Fantasy catalog is in very good hands."

While countless large and small details remain to be worked out, we can announce that plans are under way to release 10 new 20-bit titles and 5 new Original Jazz Classics sometime in April. The 20-bits are: Art Pepper, Winter Moon; Miles Davis, Dig; Coleman Hawkins, Soul; John Coltrane, Standard Coltrane; Yusef Lateef, Eastern Sounds; Kenny Drew Trio; Thelonious Monk, Thelonious Alone in San Francisco; Cannonball Adderley Sextet, In New York; Bill Evans Trio, At Shelly's Manne-Hole; Abbey Lincoln, Abbey Is Blue. The OJCs will be Shelly Manne & His Men, Play More Music from Peter Gunn; Cal Tjader Plays, Mary Stallings Sings; McCoy Tyner, Passion Dance; Mary Lou Williams, Mama Pinned a Rose on Me; and Mose Allison, Ramblin' with Mose.

Yes Brandon, the Pablo lp. It's quite a nice lp! Listening to it right now. . . could definitely enjoy a sonic upgrade.. . though the lp has really nice piano recording (that resonance that MLW gets out of a piano is well represented) . . . .

Thanks. I'm relieved that the K2's will still be issued. With the merger and the advent of SACDs, I thought perhaps these would be phased out. There are some interesting selections to be re-issued in April, though I would have preferred different Adderley, Pepper, and Lincoln, and would have liked some Montgomery and Rollins.

Thanks for the info.

The OJC titles are too exotic for me, except maybe the Tyner. Good selection for the K2s. Though it's odd to release "Standard Coltrane" on an audiophile CD while it is still available on a hybrid SACD

Cool. Thanks Lon. I'm looking forward to hearing it--especially those so beloved "resonances". :wub:

I'll have to give Mary Lou's Mass a spin when I get home this evening. It's been ages...

I listened to it again recently, which was fun. The cd's going to have about 7 additional tracks on the cd. And will probably have one of those big thick booklets. . . I'm glad to see they're giving her music attention!

I'll definitely pick up the Mary Lou and the Manne right out of the gate. You can never have too much Joe Gordon, I always say... at least, whenever I'm talking about Joe Gordon.
