94 posts in this topic

Lots o' stuff from the B&N Concord sale, plus some others:

Jessica Williams: Live at Maybeck

Andy Laverne: Live at Maybeck

Marc Cary: Rhodes Ahead

Stan Getz: Getz/Gilberto

Don Wilkerson: Complete BN Recordings

Jimmy Smith: A New Sound, A New Star

right now: Chick Corea/Gary Burton, Native Sense--DAMN. If you are a fan of vibes and or/duets you gotta check this out. Some very strong playing by both, and they TEAR THAT SHIT UP on the penultimate track, "Rhumbata." I had no idea that Chick had this strong a feel for Afro-Cuban playing.

I never get tired of listening to this man's music. It never loses the power to move and astonish me. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Ellington.

Yep & I am the Art Pepper too - i didnt get the Art Tatum but got both the Bill Evans (god knows when i'll get to the end of the Evans Fantasy box).

The price of the Live Trane on Pablo from zweitausendeins is very good too compared to any prices here in the UK.
