Lots of interesting stuff there. Thanks for the heads-up, felser. :tup 

As a Roland Hanna-ophile, I would definitely recommend Time for the Dancers.

It's one of Hanna's finest trio records, imo. But don't expect it whack you over the head. It's subtle. But keep listening... after a few spins, it starts to reveal itself, until finally, "Wow!"

I don't think I've ever heard "The Pantagon" by Cedar Walton. From the YouTube videos, it sounds OK if a little dated with rinky-dink piano & fuzzy bass. Is the consensus that it's worth picking up... for $8.87? :)

That was an "instant classic" back in the day on Inner City. For that price, hell yeah.

Agreed it's well worth $9, though it's not as strong as their Steeplechase recordings.  Short cuts and self-consciously latin in places, but of course played well.

.... and the sound is terrific - I have the original Direct-Cut-LP issue.

and definitely not dated with rinky dink piano/fuzzy bass on the original East Wind direct cut LP so a CD should sound great.

My LP of this one gets played often.

My CD from 2015 (reissued in 2017 and now again - with same mastering) has fabulous sound ....

For anyone who likes Cedar Walton, ‘The Pentagon’ is a must IMO.

Several things that look interesting to me.

Anyone who hasn't got 'The one and only Herman Foster' (not Forster :)) needs a copy.

This one is good... and elusive.

Some great Cedar Walton titles in that batch - and at a good price. Wish I was near a Disk Union. :(

Some very nice staff. Amsterdam After Dark... love that record. Such a pity that One Upmanship and Moods are the Waldron albums getting reissued again. Most people including me will have those and I even think they are still in print or at least easy to find. Why not reissue Black Glory or What It Is? A pity...

And "Mal Waldron Plays The Blues Live At The Domicile" recorded during the same gig(s) as "Black Glory" ....

She turns 89 next month.  Pretty remarkable life and pretty remarkable body of work.

Does anyone know how shipping costs are calculated in case of a split order. I want to order some cds that are already release, one that will be released 5th of December and one that will be released on December the 20th. Will they wait with shipping everything till the 20th? Will they split up and count extra shipping costs? Anyone who know this?

You have the choice to have them shipped within one installment, means they will keep your CD`s until the later one`s are released .... makes sense economically ....

That one is good. I got it from Hiroshi, I think, back when he still had his shop.

That was recorded as a direct to disc recording on East Wind. That LP sounds good.

I bought it when it was last available in Japan, in February 2015.  It didn't make much of an impression on me.  Bland and inoffensive.
