Is this the first time that Wes Montgomery's "Incredible Jazz Guitar" has been reissued?

:P

I might go for the Miles and Tyner (don't have that one on cd)

It is pretty uninspired, though I am not sure I have the Tyner, so I might get that.

It's the closest thing to a classic CTI album Tyner ever made. Title track is pretty great.

Sorry, didn't mean to imply the Tyner was uninspired. I meant the re-issues, as everything has been on CD once and generally several times.

Till There Was You (Take 1)

That alternate take was on the OJC reissue.

There Will Never Be Another You

This is a bass/drums duet recorded when OP and Max where waiting for Sonny to arrive - it was added to Roach's "Deeds Not Words" OJC reissue.

Duh - I made my own burn of the complete session ...

====================

Nat Adderley - Work Song

Coleman Hawkins - The Hawk Flies High

The Nat Adderley was on SACD - now which disc has better sound?

The Hawk is available on a great sounding Mobile Fidelity SACD.

So they put the same bonus track on 2 different Keepnews Collection remasters - Freedom Suite & Deeds, Not Words.

Brilliant! :crazy:

The Nat Adderley SACD sounds rather awful. I recently got the japanese K2 remaster, which is slightly better. But either the recording wasn't very good or all the reissues used damaged master tapes, because none of them sounds fully satisfactory, like most other Riverside sessions from that time.

Oh - I have to admit I didn't compare take numbers and didn't assume there was another take. So Keepnews is still mining in the vaults, even though Iron Mountain keeps them ...

I think I will hold out for a reissue of Freedom Suite that contains the elusive take 2... :blink:

The way it's going these days I'm not sure I'd hold out for anything.

Totally agree with you. And "classic CTI album" is damning with faint praise when it comes to 70's Tyner, which was my meaning. Except for the title track, the Tyner underachieves (and is uninspired) considering what he was capable of in that period.

Really? I've not heard the SACD layer, but the Redbook layer of the SACD sure sounds nice to these ears. YMMV.

I thought the original lp sound sucked and have never listened again.

That whole list is just one big ho-freakin-hum for me.

That said, I might get Incredible Jazz Guitar simply because I don't have it in any other form and heard "D-Natural Blues" on the radio tonight. Might also get Freedom Suite for the same reason, but really: if I'd wanted them by now, I would've gotten the OJC's, so why bother? I guess those won't be in print any longer, so...

Both are more than worth "getting sometime" so get some version of each.

Freedom Suite is also available on the box set: The Freelance Years, Complete Riverside and Contemporary Recordings. 5 CDs for 30 dollars from Newbury. I have the set, good remastering too (though the programming is a little odd).

That's probably the best description of this album, for better and worse. If you're a CTI fan and wondered what a McCoy Tyner CTI album might sound like, this album answers that question.

I have the record, though, and I can answer for you: boring.
