Don't think Cecil McBee's "Compassion" ever made it to CD. It's live at Sweet Basil on Enja, with Chico Freeman, Joe Gardner, Dennis Moorman, Steve McCall and Don Moye

These both are very good ....

Mickey Tucker deserves to be heard by more people than have likely heard him.

By the way,what ever happened to Mickey Tucker? He just, as Neil Young sang, "Faded Away."

Seriosuly, I think he moved to New Zealand to teach and then hurt his back. Something like that.

Heath Brothers-Live at the Public Theater should be on cd. In fact, collecting all their recordings would be a great set.

Still hoping for Brubeck "The Last Time We Saw Paris" and Brubeck/Mulligan "Compadres". Both were on Columbia LPs, now Sony.

Brubeck was unhappy with The Last Time We Saw Paris.

Brubeck was unhappy with "Jackpot" yet it finally was released on CD. Also, what is holding-up release of with "Compadres" on CD?

His Facebook page says he lives in Melbourne, Australia, with his profession listed as "Retired Jazz pianist/composer". To your point about a back issue, the latest picture, posted in June, shows him seated.

So true!  Whenever I listen to these LPs, I'm amazed that they aren't readily available.

Enja needs to make these available again, pronto!!!

I have a CD of Cecil McBee's "Music From The Source" but it's long OOP I believe. I don't think 'Compassion" has ever been on CD. I wish Enja would reissue them both too!

I actually never heard "Music From The Source." Maybe I will ... someday! I have Compassion on vinyl, but don't have my audio system set up for records right now.

Nice record and an interesting combination. Bought the LP a few years AFP but would like to have a nice cd version too.

It's not a CD, but the Japanese original on Victor (and not the French budget-pressing on Explosive, as Discogs claims...) is a much nicer issue.

George Coleman's "Big George." I've never seen this on CD and have been looking for this for years.

Thanks Kevin for alerting me to this Junior Cook Quartet date - I am pretty sure I have the Coleman tunes on an Affinity issue but while the title seems very familiar I can't find the separate Cook date anywhere. He and Mickey Tucker made a nice combination on those Steeplechases so I'm excited that there's more from them to hear.

As mentioned above Dolo! did come out on CD, as did California Hard.

Third Down did not, nor did a solo LP called All Alone (though they clearly should have called it Dolo Solo!).

I came pretty close to pulling the trigger on a used copy of the Third Down LP, but shipping costs are such a killer these days.  Now the price is beyond what I am willing to pay, but I'll still keep an eye out.

Funny I just acquired both very recently. The solo disc was $5 but I think I paid $10 for Third Down.  Worthy recordings so now I am sure there'll be another round of Xanadu CDs that will include both.

That would be great if it happens.  I think they slowed down a lot on the reissue front. 

It turns out that a university library has a copy of Third Down, but I don't know if it circulates, and I am not particularly close with any York University staff or students unfortunately...
