  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Ray Mantilla Space Station featuring Bobby Watson - Dark Powers (Red, 1989) and Ray Mantilla Space Station - Hands of Fire (Red, 1984)
  2. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    More Foster & Wess, but further back in time: Recorded in 1956 and 1957 Interesting instrumentation on most cuts: Two saxes, two trombones (Benny Powell & Henry Coker) and no pianist. The rhythm section cooks just fine though. Not a surprise given the players -- Kenny Burrell, Eddie Jones & Kenny Clarke. I wonder if the pianist was a no-show... or if they were intentionally going for a lighter "West Coast" sound à la Mulligan & Baker. The author of the liner notes doesn't say anything about it.

    Daniel Ponce - Arawe (Antilles New Directions, 1987) Transcendent.

  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Eternal Wind - S/T (Flying Fish, 1984) Fascinating music from a band led by Detroit trumpeter Charles Moore and Chicago percussionist Adam Rudolph. ...There's been some recent discussion on the board about the sub-genre "spiritual jazz" (another problematic term, but whatever). If you think that sub-genre went dormant in the 1980s, give this a listen. With the players involved, I suppose it's not surprising that this music sounds like something that could've been released on Strata or Tribe or Strata-East during the heyday of "spiritual jazz" -- if only slightly updated for the 1980s. I dig it.

    Hilton Ruiz Ensemble - Something Grand (Novus, 1987)
  10. Dan, I have a Record Doctor vacuum-type LP cleaner. I'd be happy to clean your LP for you. Right now, I'm not set up to do an analog-to-digital transfer. If you can handle that part, I'm happy to help with the vinyl scrub. Let me know if that meets your need. Completely understandable if you're looking for someone to do the end-to-end process.
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Prompted by Rooster's revival of the thread about Oliver Nelson's "Stolen Moments": Mark Murphy - Stolen... And Other Moments (32 Jazz/Muse) I wish 32 Jazz would've reissued Murphy's albums complete, rather than chopping up the records and reissuing the tunes in a series of compilations. That said, as far as comps go, this ain't bad.
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Kamal Abdul Alim & The Brothers - Dance (Stash/Soul Brother, 1988) with James Spaulding, Bobby Watson, Ron/Rahn Burton and Manny Oquendo's Libre - Sonido, Estilo, y Ritmo (Montuno, 1983) with Andy & Jerry Gonzalez and many others

    Nice selection of Tjader's Verve material chosen by Eddie Palmieri. Excellent! Cream skimmed from the top of ON's Mosaic set.
