    • RIP and all that, but his version of *I Remember You" remains one of the more cringe-worthy items of my life. I first heard it when trying to learn it to play it when sitting in down at The Recovery Room and it was just...every kind of wrong. But yeah, RIP and all that.
    • I saw the MJQ in concert some 60 years ago and quite liked them.  But decades later I read something where  Milt Jackson complained about Lewis and his "goddam counterpoint" (not sure that's an exact quote) and now that's all I hear.  Sort of ruined my enjoyment of the Mosaic set. 
    • I've had a difficult time reconnecting with Black Magic Man, but I adore Tenor and especially The Willisau Concert. I wish there were more documentation of McPhee playing with some of the more familiar names of his era, regardless of the superlative quality of his solo and more esoteric small ensemble work. 
    • Nimbus West Records Quality Albums Since 1978 The IUCC series continues with 3 incredible concerts from Horace Tapscott and the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra. Just landed - NOW SHIPPING March 79 : the Ark in transition , Jesse Sharps has recently left to serve in the armed forces, and the setlist pays tribute to his songwriting genius, with both Mykowski’s 1st Fifth and the legendary “Desert Fairy Princess” written for and lead by the desert fairy princess herself, Adele Sebastian. This is where Sabir Mateen steps into the spotlight with the debut performance of his iconic and monumental VILLAGE DANCE. LIVE at IUCC 3/25/79 cd NS-7903c April 1979 saw the Arkestra further settling into the new lineup after the departure of Jesse Sharps , featuring wonderful takes of both the Village Dance, and Mykowski’s 1st Fifth.. Adele Sebastian and Sabir Mateen really stepping in to lead the group to new heights. An unheard Tapscott gem , Song of Emanon, would fit comfortably in a film, and is painted with delicate detail by the master himself.. finally, Duke Ellington’s birthday is honored with an unforgettable Tapscott take of Mood Indigo. LIVE at IUCC 4/29/79 cd NS-7904c September 1979 features a beautiful and heartfelt rendition of Coltrane’s EQUINOX, which flows into Tapscott’s singular Coltrane Medley. The completely unheard Sabir Mateen composition , A Call For Truth, is here finally for all to devour in its full glory.. After burning down the room with “Leland’s Song” ,Linda Hill takes the mic for the deep soulful take of Come Sunday. A full band take on Alan Hines’s “Speedy Mike” rounds out the proceedings of another classic Sunday afternoon. LIVE at IUCC 9/30/79 cd NS-7907c Limited to 333 copies each- ORDER NOW at www.nimbuswestrecords.com   3 to go!!! - hopefully we'll receive all 10 this year
    • I don't know about that, but I'm personally more interested/impressed when I visit someone's house and see an actual physical collection, versus someone having no library other than digital, with nothing to actually look at.  It doesn't mean they like music more or less, but I feel like I'm meeting a kindred soul. Saying that, I'm also at a point where I'm not interested in growing my own collection significantly larger, so I tend to cull things I don't listen to as much anymore, which makes space for newer purchases.
