Julius Hemphill Box Set

77 posts in this topic

Not TOO far north, like Chicago to Detroit north.

$111.93, to be exact.

Don't want to scare people off without looking.

I'm sure it's a nice set, but at a price tag north of $100 for 7 CD's, I'm out for the present.  

Under current business conditions, not unreasonable considering the costs.

Just received email from New World Records with a link to additional information. Check this out:

If you click on the "liner notes" box, you get the full liner notes and complete discographical information.  It looks exciting!

I agree. As I tell my wife, if these endeavors go unsupported, we will not see them in the future. Just because I got the William Parker set and two large orders of Japanese releases in the last 6 weeks I have to hold off for a little bit. This will be purchased though.

+1 on both (emphasis added). I just ordered directly from the label; would rather support them directly than wait in hopes of cheaper offerings.

For those contemplating the digital release, be aware when you buy downloads from New World you have to download each track individually tediously.

Thanks for the warning. I may have purchased this but not if their downloads are presented as you say. Such a shame.

New World also has a Bandcamp page. I am waiting a couple of days to see if it will be available there so that I can have access to streaming and download, along with my purchase of the physical CDs. If it is not available there in a couple of days, I will order directly from New World.

I was just going to post...

Ordered Thursday night, arrived Monday in upstate NY. Pleasant surprise.

And recently (less than a month ago) a 1-CD media mail package from Brooklyn took well over a week to arrive!

I just started discovering his work. His classic Dogon A.D. on vinyl is now on it's way for more than a month now from the US. The duets with Wadud were next in line. Already had my eye on them.

Damn straight!  I love all of the Hemphill/Wadud duo recordings that I have and this one is unique - different compositions than usual played extremely well. 

I have listened to the first three discs so far.  Amazing!   No Hemphill fan can be without this.

Yeah, I'm into Disc 3 right now, listening to each disc twice before moving on to the next, and concur in every regard.

Also, haven't tried to read thru it yet. but the accompanying documentation/annotation seems to be very high-level. Par for the course for New World, in my experience, those folks tend to not fuck around.

Yes, this was put together by Marty Ehrlich with love, and he wrote the notes as well.

Disc 4 (Chamber Music) is very nice, especially the Ursula Oppens performance. Not sure if the Daedelus Quartet was the right choice to play the arrangements of Mingus tunes, but hey, you get a chance to get played by a group of that stature, you take it.

More invigorating music!

I've listened to / enjoyed the whole box twice, agreed on disc 4 which was an eye-opener.

Oppens has also recorded Parchment on this Music & Arts release that I bought back in the mid-'90s:

I'm significantly behind the curve on Ursula Oppens, seems like she's made a LOT of records and I've heard but a few...but that's what time is for, right?

FYI, if you contact New World when you order they can probably send you a link to download the entire set at once.
