  1. Does anyone have an update on the JATP set that was rumored to be released in December?
  2. so glad to see Monette Sudler recorded again...
  3. I'll take this as a general no... Okay let me try a different bucket list question... Anyone gone to any of the following jazz festivals and was it worth it? Montreux, Monterey, New Orleans, Detroit, or Chicago? Trying to give myself an empty nester gift next year,
  4. Seriously has anybody here taken any of these? Are they any good? My daughter is off to college next year and I'm starting to think about stuff to do as a single empty nester... https://thejazzcruise.com/
  5. Okay so this came across several of my social media feeds but I can't find any more info than the paragraph listed on the website. Does anyone know anything? Twenty-two Mingus tunes should be like 3-5 CDs depending on the length of the tunes. https://www.charlesmingus.com/blog/new-album-from-mingus-big-band-the-charles-mingus-centennial-sessions Ok I found a little more... https://www.charlesmingus.com/centennial-sessions-vol-1
  6. The latest release from Snarky Puppy... At $8 on Bandcamp... it was a pretty good deal... I don't love every track but there's some good stuff in there.... https://snarkypuppy.bandcamp.com/album/empire-central
  7. Absolutely true... I often saw both of them introducing artists at Newport.
  8. I don't think it's been officially announced but it's been closed since COVID and has not reopened.
  9. We will miss him here. Over the years WGBH kept cutting the amount of on-air time to jazz. I stopped listening at that point to move to WRTI and WGBO streams but I know he was a significant part of the jazz community here. Unfortunately with the Regattabar jazz club closing and Eric passing... things are getting weaker up here in Boston... Kinda sucks...
  10. Jeez... they really are shipping these quick... I really hope this isn't going to be another set that's gone within a month... I would really like to wait and get the JATP first then the Freddie (maybe)....
  11. I'm not sure if someone already posted this but I'm looking forward to it. Sounds like two 2-cd releases with a third forthcoming. Looks promising. Has anybody got any more info? https://www.nytimes.com/2022/08/31/arts/music/ahmad-jamal-live-albums.html
  12. Listening to it right now... I don't understand why he is so often forgotten???? My top 5 pianists (probably top 3).
  13. I'm totally into this JATP set... so do we know how much of this set has been previously released on CD in the US?
  14. Wow 10Cds.. JATP... okay I'm going to have to save my $ and hold off with the Hubbard to get that set. Who's likely to get the most tracks on this set??? Which of these has been on CD previously?
  15. I can't get to the web page for some odd reason. Can someone post a synopsis of the set(s)? Also, I've got a question for you guys. Since Mosaic has gone through this new process of announcing a set close to its shipping date, it seems sets sell out MUCH quicker. It used to be that a set could be on the website for 3-6 months. Now it seems like they're gone after a month or so. Do we have an ETA for the JATP set? Also how long the Hubbard set is going to be available? I'm slightly inclined to get it as I only have one of those CDs but cash flow is low this month...
  16. Hallelujah....!! I miss him. Thought the jazz world forgot about him. I'm there. Wish it was a boxed set though...
  17. Christian McBride posted a long note about this on his Instagram page... Joey and a few days after Jamie Branch's death at 39... Not a good week,
  18. Glad to hear it. I received mine last week. Just haven't had the time and space to give it a listen yet.
  19. I've been wondering the same thing. I loved that last boxed set.
  20. Where? There's nothing on the website? How many cds? What period does it cover? The bands?
  21. Am I the only one who wants some unreleased live Betty Carter?
  22. Okay, so I'm going Saturday mainly to see Maria Schneider and Joe Lovano. Does anybody know anything about these vocalists or have seen any of them perform? Lady Blackbird, Samara Joy, and Melanie Charles? I used to like Esperanza Spalding but she's kinda worn on me... I did check out Holly Bowling (I know she's a pianist, not a vocalist). I liked her a lot...Looking forward to that set. https://www.newportjazz.org/lineup
  23. okay so let me see if I understand this... Vol. 6 was a 4CD set that had been published numerous times in several different sets and Vol. 7 is a 3cd set that no one wanted to release in 40 years. Did I miss anything? What am I not getting?
