John Coltrane "My Favorite Things" 50th Anniversary 2 cd set, mono mix cd. Sounds great. I ended up with two of these sets because I chose not to wait for Rhino to mail me my pre-ordered copy which took 3 weeks to arrive.

Plenty to like (like the rhythm section, especially when the Rhodes come on!), not a whole lot to love. Recommended for the listener who loves to just like.

Recent ish reissue of an obscure Strata thing. Not really digging it. I feel like there are hundreds of records that I would have reissued before this one.

Is that Strata-East or Strata?

It's important to keep our obscurities in order. Otherwise they become post-obscure. :g

Lots of good Jabbo Smith, but for some reason, I am particularly fond of Monette Moore's reading of Don't You Leave Me Here.

Listening now...opening track ain't so bad. Those creeping 70s intros are so on point.

I liked the first track most. But even then it’s nothing that we haven’t heard before. The later tracks are just jam standard with quite a lot of audible mistakes.

David Boykin Reads Sun Ra               

https://www.dustygroove.com/item/113568

The wisdom and knowledge of Sun Ra – read by saxophonist David Boykin, an artist who is definitely carrying on the spiritual legacy that Ra began on the Chicago scene! The album is all spoken word – no music at all, but instead these really well-done readings by Boykin – who clearly embraces all of the ideas in the writings of Ra, and delivers them with an understanding that really makes the words leap off the page! Selections include writings from the late 50s through the start of the 80s – with titles that include "Of Variable Universe", "The Empty Space", "Sound Silence", "The Sounds Of Planets", "The Space Age Cannot Be Avoided", "We Hold This Myth To Be Potential", "The Visitation", "Visions Out", "The Three Dimensions Of Air", and "On Solar Planes".  

A niche item, but...I am not at all turned off by Ra's writings, nor his philosophy (once "decoded", which I may or may not be getting all wrong, but...it makes more sense than anything else right now). Boykin does justice to the words. In particular, I like "We Hold These Myths To Be Potential".

Indeed.

These past few days I've been wanting to hear "Ruby My Dear" and today I'm listening to the solo piano version on Thelonious Monk "Solo Monk"
