Not to mention they even still had the 3LP Sonny Rollins in Holland hiding away. Alladin’s Cave. :lol:

Hope things are okay

oh yes, much better...

I've been catching up on Wadada Leo Smith from zero recently, quite a project and I haven't decided how ambitious I want to be... after getting Sacred Ceremonies a few weeks ago, I now got the two new releases on TUM (w Iyer/DeJohnette + Chicago Symphonies), the Great Lakes 2CD, the Kabell Years box, Divine Love, Tabligh, Ten Freedom Summers, the ECM duo with Vijay Iyer and the NoBusiness Duo w Sabu Toyozumi... more to come...

I'm amazed at how much CD prices continue to fall.  Earlier today, I picked up these CDs in a local shop for a total of $20.

"Pres and Sweets" (Verve). Heard this rec. Nov.15, 1955 album when it came out and thought that Pres was literally and distressingly quite weak -- indeed he was quite weak when I heard him at a JATP concert  in Chicago in early October 1955 (which came out on LP in the early '80s as "Blues in Chicago"); and he would be hospitalized later in November for alcoholism and other physical and mental ailments, only to return triumphantly early the following year to make "Jazz Giants '56" and "Pres and Teddy." While there are a number of moments on "Pres and Sweets"when his control of the horn falters, yet there are others when his state of near incapacity leads him to carve out strikingly oblique musical solutions. On balance, I find much of what Pres plays here quite moving and, if you will, courageous.

Yes!  The ultimate Pres performance for me in that mold is the alternate take of "You're Getting to Be a Habit With Me" from the February, 1958 session, also with Sweets - extraordinary beauty that Lester probably couldn't have even played if he wasn't in such bad shape.

The LP showed up yesterday.   I wanted to display the cover as wall art but the seller neglected to mention that the name ‘TOM’ was written in blue marker on the cover.  Oh, well, life goes on.     🙄
