  1. Nelson's Stolen Moments

    Yeah, but they probably wouldn't dbl check and would thus create errors which would then be replicated.
  2. Blue Note Groove Things, imaginary box set

    Oh yeah, that's definitely on the list.
  3. Blue Note Groove Things, imaginary box set

    Yes to both of these. Yes, that totally works. Nice track, kind of borderline for this concept but I'd like to have some some Kenny Garrett if at all possible...
  4. ??? Pre-Bop Blue Note CDs

    Yeah, it's amazing he could play so well when his fretting hand's on backwards! Does anyone here know if the other sides Shirley cut for BN have survived?
  5. Joe Henderson Blue Note 1963-1966

    Given Cuscuna's antipathy to Son of Sidewinder groove tunes, I'd just as soon they didn't.
  6. ??? Pre-Bop Blue Note CDs

    IIRC, he recorded more but that was all that was issued, no idea if the unissued sides still exist. I think there's some other unissued BN from this era as well but again no idea if it still exists in any form. It's in the print and online discographies.
  7. Imaginary Mosaics

    Rudy Wiedoeft and Benny Krueger - YouTube Rudy Wiedoeft and Benny Krueger a couple of tricksters on C-melody
  8. Sonny Sharrock

    Not bad. Ask the Ages is all that, and more.
  9. Rejiggered version of the Band's Stage Fright, 2 CD edition; not bad, both the re-sequenced SF and the concert on CD 2, this will probably be my go-to version of this now.
  10. Imaginary Mosaics

    Nah, just Oregon west of Hwy. 97 would be plenty.
  11. Imaginary Mosaics

    The Complete Atlantic Recordings of Tommy Cogbill and Roger Hawkins.
  12. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I don't even think of some things that actually were on BN initially as being 'really BN' - if they were done after they moved to LA or show the imprint of an outside producer like Monk Higgins, or just don't feel right to me.
  13. Eric Dolphy on Blue Note?

    I think we're more on the same page here than not, selling the label and having more $ to play with led in the short term to a sort of Indian Summer - although we will probably never know exactly who was calling what what shots and when. And I own and enjoy Vibrations, and love Live at the Lighthouse - if they were to issue the as yet unissued tunes from that date I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I also love most Leo/Idris' work for the label '67-70. He owned that groove even more than Higgins owned Son of Sidewinder. And, unlike Cuscuna, I think groove tunes of various sorts are at the heart of what the label was about. And I wish they would just go ahead and issue everything done at/for BN until Francis left (1971?). Things like the Sounds Soul Symphony or Blue Mitchell's Collision in Black, i don't love but the're still part of the story.
  14. Eric Dolphy on Blue Note?

    Oh, I know... for one thing, without Liberty's $ no one comes back to BN in the later '60s - not Lou D, not Grant G, not the 3 Sounds. At least 2 of those would be a loss. They might not have signed McCoy or Elvin either. Also BN's thinking on publishing may well have been that if they didn't get it then some slimeball like Morris Levy would and then they'd have to deal with that.
  15. Mosaic Sets but Especially Tina Brooks

    When I worked at the Electric Fetus (89-91), knowing about Mosaic (which we didn't even sell) was the test of whether you were really a jazz fan or not. I'd first learned about them before I moved to MN because the Multnomah County Library in Portland , OR bought them and I soon came to trust that pretty much anything they did was worth checking out even though I couldn't afford to buy much. I had friends in MN who would call me if they saw used Mosaics at better than new prices. I currently own 11 big boxes, 3 Selects, and 3 singles, both LPs & CDs, if I counted right. Wish I owned more They did good work, in every sense. And even where the material is available elsewhere (and often for less $), I would usually rather have the Mosaics, unless my other choice is BN 1st pressings in mono... But I haven't bought many used recently (and probably should've taken my cheaper option on the last one I bought), and haven't bought a new one in forever.
