A couple of CD's I ordered online just came over the transom---Southern Scene/The Riddle (Brubeck) and the aforementioned Adderley Sextet in New York. About that last, when somebody mentioned it recently on the board I thought surely I must have the album, but a look through my collection proved that I did not, strangely enough. Newbury Comics soon cured THAT.

Buying a CD is a big deal for me these days. In general, anything I buy I have to discard/give away within a week or two. But I couldn't resist Sonny Simmons, LIve in Paris, a two-CD set on Arhoolie. I used to hear Simmons outside my office window in the 80s (San Francisco, New Montgomery Street). Amazon reviews call it unlistenable (or close to it) and AllAboutJazz says "In 2000, Arhoolie music re-issued a long out-of-print live 1969 album Manhattan Egos to fill in a curious gap in the Simmons story.

This time Arhoolie found Mr. Simmons in Paris, live in a recent concert. Audiophiles beware; the recording has a rough bootleg feel with the audience talking through some solos and the overall feel of a Dean Benedetti recording.".

But in my rental car, it's enjoyable so far (Disc One); thank goodness for failing hearing. This could even be a keeper.

Used copies of Dvorak's "Russalka," cond. by Neumann; Paray/Detroit Symphony doing Sibelius 2nd and Dvorak "New World"; Martinon CSO Ravel program; Martinon CSO Bartok Miraculous Mandarin, Varese Arcana, Hindemith Nobelissima Visione.So far I've listened to the Paray/Sibelus, which is terrific (but so is Hannikainen's) and some of the Martinon Rapsodie Espagnole -- its first movement astonishingly brisk (3:58) compared to Reiner's great CSO recording from twelve years before ((5:47), though I suppose one could say that that Reiner's is astonishingly languid. Sounds like two different pieces of music -- could both conductors be "right"? Why not?

I've had that one for years and like it a lot. Not audiophile sound, but I've heard worse. The music and and the spirit of the playing carry the day. When I listen to it, I don't notice the sound quality. Given your memories of Sonny Simmons, I'll bet you'll end up keeping this recording.

If you're not familiar with Raymond Burke, who never left New Orleans much, I think you're going to like his clarinet playing on the Hodes album.

I've spent a bit more time/mileage with the Simmons "Live in Paris". The sound is raw and livley - both the audio and Simmons. While lacking the echo of the canyons of the San Francisco Financial District, it does bring back memories, even with a decade-plus displacement between SF and Paris.

The Incognito has a guest spot by Ursula Rucker, & Raphael Saadiq produced the Clouds (which could be a really good thing or....not).

The ritual trio lineup more than speaks for itself.
