gradually ticking them off. Wholly driven by the enthusiasm on this board for all things BH

That’s a very, very good Billy Harper record. One of my favs!

I'm in Chicago for a few weeks.  Yesterday, I spent a good bit of the time kicking around in record stores.

Here are a few things I bought:

91gam-TuThL._SS500_.jpg

Richard Beirach - The Breathing of Statues (CMP, 1982)
I have the domestic LP issue of this album -- licensed by the short-lived Magenta label -- but I'd never even seen a German CMP original until yesterday.  Normally, I'm not much of a player in the incremental sound improvement game, but I made an exception in this case.  Since it's one of the finest records that Beirach ever made (IMO) and Beirach is one of my favorite pianists, I was HAPPY to scoop it up.  My gut tells me that the pristine German vinyl will be a big improvement in sound over the Magenta LP.  (The AQ of all other CMP records I've heard has been wunderbar.) 

 

R-14381770-1573521722-9115.jpeg.jpg

Alma Con Alma: The Heart & Soul of Celia Cruz & Tito Puente (Tico, 1970)
Craft LP reissue.  Tito Puente put out a TON of records; he was crazy-prolific -- but I'm discovering that he was also consistently interesting, a superb musician.  

 

81O0j+Z4Y0L._SS500_.jpg

Sonny Rollins - Dancing in the Dark (Milestone, 1987)
CD.  A Sonny Milestone that I didn't have.

 

61iJrcpWrtL._SX500_.jpg

Steve Coleman and Five Elements - Sine Die (Pangea, 1988)
CD.  I've been exploring Coleman's beginnings, back in the 80s.  Really digging what I'm hearing.  Vital music.

 

71whwzMk6zL._SS500_.jpg

Mads Vinding Trio with Alex Riel & Enrico Pieranunzi - The Kingdom (Where Nobody Dies) (Stunt, 1997)
CD.  Love Vinding. Love Pieranunzi.  Easy decision.

 

71YUkdPyATL._SS500_.jpg

The Don Rendell / Ian Carr Quintet - Change Is (Columbia, 1969)
BGO CD reissue.  I've been meaning to check out this group; I'm especially interested in the latter releases with Michael Garrick.  So I guess I'll begin with the last one and work my way backwards.

Went on a jaunt today and found a couple of records that I've always loved but hadn't seen in the wild before:

You got that sharpish. Mine's in the post from Presto so they claim anyway.

Does it have a download code? I've read mention of in some listings

Yes, ordered for overnight delivery. Both ‘Space Walk’ and the double do come with the download voucher. Thanks for mentioning - completely overlooked that.

The only negative I find with that 2LP version is that the two single CDs (and the Mosaic) include some very good extra tracks.

In The Little Record Shop on Tottenham Lane in Hornsey, which if I recall rightly is your neck of the woods.

That teaches me to be a cheapskate and choose 2nd class postage. It will be good to have a mobile copy.

Wasn’t planning on getting this one but on the evidence of the sound samples the music and tangible club atmosphere is brilliant. With Gearbox doing the honours, can’t go wrong !

Anything by Kirk of that vintage is a must for me but Gearbox is definitely a bonus

Some finds from a record store run this afternoon:

Pic02-Bags-Miles.png

How about the Miles Davis Stockholm 1960 set for $7.95 !?!?! 

I wonder if the shop owner even realized that it's a four-disc set, not two.  In any case, I snapped it up.  ;)

I ordered an autographed copy of Ron Carter's Golden Striker Trio LP from his website. Looking forward to spinning this later.

Picked that one up as part of the RSD purchases. As it is raining today, good day to play it as well as the Harold Land. Good of Carter to do this signed edition for In-and-Out. Have been hearing good reports of their Rolf Kuhn 2x45 too.

At Half Price Books yesterday, Benjamin Grosvenor's Decca debut album, with a stunning Gaspard de la Nuit. Probably will be going back today or tomorrow for his second album "Dances" and a 1964 London LP set of La Centerola (sp?) with Simionato and Bruscantini -- this stimulated in part by Jon Vickers' statement that Simionato was the best singer with whom he ever shared the stage.

I waddled over to Qobuz, and for $1.49, I bought a lossless download of the track "Fantasia Africana" by Lou Perez.  I had the LP, but this was the only track I liked.  At the time, I burned the title track from the vinyl, and sold the LP to Dusty Groove.

Interesting - a place I was in this weekend had that ‘Statements’ on Philips. Not sure if it was a UK issue. They also had the 2LP ‘The Young Rabbits’.

Both worth the low prices paid. A Philips would have been preferable but this edition sounds OK, good album

That version looks like the 1966 World Record Club. Looks like Philips would be the German issue. Unusual for a Bob Thiele Impulse album.
