135 posts in this topic

has anyone mentioned this release (55 Records Japan) due for April 26 - looking at other 55 Records discs it looks like this may be a Dutch Jazz Archives release

Anyone know more about this?

Check the Mobley You Tube link below

Wow!

I wonder if I should go straight to the Japan market to pre-order or try Amazon. Hank in what promises to be good sound is pretty big news.

Well his known visit to Europe was what, '68 - '69? Whenever Reach Out was recorded. The known recordings of Hank in Europe is spring of 1968 if memory serves.

I gotta get this one. I haven't used HMV Japan in a long time. Should I pre-order or wait? Hmmmmm.

It sounds really lovely!  I'd get a copy, sure, why the heck not?!

Does anyone have a link to where this can be pre-ordered?  (From anywhere?)  I can't seem to find it on Amazon (US nor UK), nor Amazon Japan, nor CDJapan -- and my Google-fu is coming up snake-eyes too.  (Thanks in advance!)

Yeah, actually you know, HMV, they're shady. Let me give it a shot, I'll let you know if they come thru.

And if they run out quickly, you got me covered, right?

Who's my buddy, who's my pal?

:g

But seriously, I see the release date is not until April. Not knowing this company or this label or what the future holds in terms of exchange rates, I am hesitant to just preorder and que sera that shit, you know?

OTOH, that YouTube clip sounds DAMN good to me.

They want $17 to ship a $17.80 CD to Maine! Ouch. I may have to wait for Da Bastids to get this.

Why can't I select PayPal as a payment option?

I figured but I was at their site and didn't see it.

Some other sites that sell CDs in the series: cdjapan.co.jp, dustygroove.com, jpc.de and amazon marketplace sellers.   Probably too early for them to list the Mobley.

I just E-mailed Da Bastids (Dusty Groove) to ask them if they're going to carry it. I would rather order it from them if only to save on the exorbitant shipping that HMV Japan is charging.

The final clip on this site (Frank Jochemsen aan tafel) seems to discuss this upcoming jazzarchief release (the clip is from last December and apparently matters were still more uncertain then).

http://www.nposoulenjazz.nl/colive/uitzending/389411

importantly, starting at minute 6 there is a track of about 9 minutes from the concert (Like someone in love). This is apparently not the recording from the youtube clip but rather from 29 March 1968 at the B14 club in Rotterdam with

Hank Mobley
Rob Agerbeek (p)
Hans van Rossum (b)
Cees See (dr)

apparently, van Rossum was substituting for Jimmy Woode who is in the newspaper announcements... but still!

FWIW, the catalog number (from the HMV link) appears to be:  FNCJ5621  <<< now a link that goes to the Google search.

Which seems to bring up 8-9 various Japanese sites with early pre-release listings.  None with artwork (yet), and seemingly none with any sort of track-listing -- though eventually those may start to appear in time (perhaps only in Japanese).

All of which is to say that searching on that 'cat-no' only in the coming weeks or next month, and then looking at the "translate page" link results -- may (at some point) give an early indication of the track-listing (even before it appears anywhere else in English).

I like the guy who runs that site but their listing isn't very exhaustive if 55 CDs includes Japanese versions of all of the Dutch series.

That's some fantastic Hank Mobley in that clip.

From Dusty:

Dear Kevin,

Thanks for the heads up! We haven't seen a solicitation from our distributor yet, but it sounds like something we'd like to carry. We'll keep an eye out for it. We don't have a waiting list system, but check back on our 'Coming Soon' section.
