  1. Mingus at Carnegie Hall, Deluxe Edition

    I would be happy to buy a 16-CD set of 1970-1975 Santana
  2. Greek tragedy meets American ingenuity in Iphigenia, the long-awaited opera by Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding. A mythical work in progress for the last several years, it has now reached a developmental stage foreign to most other operatic productions: a crowdfunding campaign. https://www.wbgo.org/music/2021-03-15/wayne-shorter-and-esperanza-spalding-make-an-appeal-to-get-their-opera-to-a-premiere
  3. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    Finally got a copy of the Giuffre 3 Live at Graz 1961 CD - excellent album.
  4. Beatles "Get Back" doc in September

    The Beatles: Get Back - A Sneak Peek from Peter Jackson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UocEGvQ10OE
  5. Well, speaking of silence in a record, there is also the "Two Minutes Silence" in the John Lennon/Yoko One album Unfinished Music No. 2: Life With the Lions.
  6. Has anyone heard this boxset: https://thevinylfactory.com/news/john-cage-433-mute-box-set/
  7. Waterloo Records in Austin is letting people make 30-minute private shopping appointments. i might show up with disposable gloves. You can check out the records and CDs without an appointment at the Half-Price bookstore (as long as the store is not already "full").
  8. Let's hope more people discover (or discover) Monk and that there is an increase in the sales of Monk CDs.
  9. "The Cry of Jazz"

    For those who have not seen this 34 minute film:
  10. Helen Jones Woods, who played trombone with the International Sweethearts of Rhythm, a history-making all-female big band that toured widely during World War II, died of COVID-19 on July 25 in Sarasota, Fla. She was 96… After the Sweethearts disbanded in 1949, Woods joined the Omaha Symphony, only to be fired after her first performance. Her father, who had a darker complexion, came to pick her up, which prompted symphony management to realize she was Black… https://www.wbgo.org/post/helen-jones-woods-groundbreaking-female-trombonist-has-died-covid-19#stream/0
  11. Does Your Wife or Significant Other Love Jazz?

    Many years ago, I obtained a copy of Keith Jarrett’s The Köln Concert because I heard a critic say, “The chicks dig it.” And yes, the critic was correct.
  12. “Erik Satie's Vexations — an enigmatic work that exists on a single printed page but devours many hours in performance — isn’t going back into hibernation after pianist Igor Levit’s recent highly-publicized streaming marathon. Only a minute-or-two long, but repeated 840 times, Vexations is alternately called minimalist, Dada-ist, or Outsider Art when it resurfaces every few years… “ https://www.wqxr.org/story/saties-vexations-visionary-creation-or-musical-stalker/
  13. Frank Zappa

    Frank Zappa did release the Piquantique CD and, according to its notes, the recording has at least part of the 21 August 1973 Stockholm concert (including at least part of “Dupree’s Paradise”). Zappa experts can probably provide more details about Piquantique. The CD was part of Zappa's “Beat the Boots” effort: "Beat the Boots is a collection of bootleg recordings of performances by Frank Zappa which were originally distributed illegally but were released officially by Rhino Entertainment in 1991 as part of Zappa's campaign to dissuade his fans from buying illegal recordings of his concerts. The recordings were available as individual CDs and as an CDs, LPs or cassette box set." Some details are here: https://www.discogs.com/Frank-Zappa-Mothers-Piquantique-Stockholm-1973/release/1180047
  14. Gabor Szabo

    Here is a Lena Horne video that some people say shows Gabor Szabo playing guitar in the background. Can anyone confirm that it is Szabo? The two recorded an album together in 1969.
  15. Gabor Szabo

    Benson's autobiography might have some relevant details regarding the song "Breezin". But I do not have the book and the library I would go to has been closed since March.
