If nothing goes wrong ( :o ) my reissue of Warne Marsh's ALL MUSIC (plus bonus tracks) will be out the week of March 15. As I posted in another thread, we will be gone from March 5 - March 14. List members can order for the usual free US shipping (discounts for others). If interested, contact me at cnessa@earthlink.net.

This is very exciting news, Chuck!

I have noticed Melvin before and remember your interest when you were here.

Responding to your email publicly, the price is $15 and if you send a check I will cash it now - I need it (to make this happen, I just spent $2000 I don't have and want to send Warne's widow a check. If you send plastic info, I will hit the account when I ship. Legalities, or I'd hit it right now!

I hope I'm not muddying the waters but now might be a good time to also place an order for other Nessa goodies.

Von Freeman anyone? :party:

Let me get the conflict of interest out of the way up front - Chuck honored me by asking me to contribute a supplemental liner essay, and I did. For a Warne buff like me, it was a supreme pleasure. So that's that.

Now, speaking objectively - this is a SUPERB album, one I've treasured since it was first issued back in 197?. I've had the privilige to hear an advance copy of the CD, and I tell you - the sounds is incredible, perhaps the very best that Warne has ever been recorded, certainly amongst the very best.

But the sound is just the icing on the cake. Besides the greatness of the orignal album, there's some alternate takes on here that would be worth the cost of admission alone. Pretty mind-blowing stuff from a pretty mind-blowing player.

Unhesitatingly recommended, conflict of interest or not.

I was about to mention the "added benefit" of a JS essay, but I's been beat to the punch.

The cd is just over 78 minutes of very fine Marsh.

Now all we need is a Nessa-produced Quartet Out release!

Sunday? Is that the Muskegon gig? I was thinking Tuesday. No problem, I will see you whenever.

We couldn't afford each other, albeit in different ways. :g

Intriguing. I'm not familiar with this album (and only have a bit of Marsh to begin with). Is this Warne in a quartet setting or something more unconventional (for him)? And from the mid-70's? Is it a fairly typical date for him or something more offbeat and out there (as I'd expect from a Nessa release)? ;)

Might be a good opportunity for me to grab a few things I've been meaning to grab from Chuck...

It's Warne w/Lou Levy, Fred Atwood, and Jake Hanna. Tristano-ised standards and a blues. Swings like a mofo. Nothing "out there" about it, at least not more than any other Warne side. ;)

It is a typical quartet setting. Lou Levy (p), Fred Atwood (B) and Jake Hanna (d). This was the rhythm section of Supersax, the band Warne worked with at the time.

It all depends on the tenacity of the damn stores. It is available to them.

Uncle Skid and I heard a pre-release version of this at Chuck's house a while back. That was the first time I was aware of hearing Marsh and I was blown away. It is amazing. I've been waiting patiently for this announcement. :excited:

Will you be at Docker's on Sunday Chuck?

Ann and I will be there.

By the way, my car worries mention in the Newport thread came to fruition. Last night the clutch cable broke and I had to walk home.

Chuck... bring some discs to the Dockers gig. I'll buy one, Johnny Gist will probably buy one, Joe will buy one and Randy will probably buy one, too.

I need some Warne Marsh in my collection.

Not from Newport, but from the corner of Livingston and Elliot. It was friggin' cold.

Put your foot on the clutch and BAM your foot hits the floor and the pedal is gone!
