  1. RIP Malcolm Cecil

    Remembering Malcolm Cecil, Synth Pioneer and Stevie Wonder Producer - NYS Music Sort of "old" news as Cecil passed away earlier this week, but didn't see a thread on it. Man, I need to check out those Expanding Head Band albums.
  2. Love the IASW box, but the background coloring of the liner notes in the accompanying book has accounted for much of my poor vision while trying to read them. . Don't know who at Legacy/Sony signed off on that clashing orange/blue/white design. The words are barely decipherable in many parts of the notes. Yes, if only they would reissue that one too. But I'm definitely jumping on the OTC set. It was pretty pricey even when it was available the first time around.
  3. Downbeat Magazine Collection

    I don't think so. Apparently, I missed it by a hair.
  4. WTH is this?
  5. Record Store Day 2019

    Did anyone pick up the jazz oriented releases for RSD '19 this past Saturday? Some are listed here: Others included: AEC - The Spiritual Bolden - Soundtrack Ceremonial Healing
  6. I don't have a subscription login or car package, but have been able to access all of their channels by just going to the site or using the mobile app for more than 2 months now. Is this a glitch? Their free previews only last about a week or two and no trial was signed up for. Hmmm...
  7. RIP Louis Smith

    There appeared to be a 20 year break in recording between his albums for Blue Note and SteepleChase (1958-1978). So this month, we have lost Hutch, Mr. Smith, and a guy who worked closely with both of them at BN, RVG.
  8. RIP Louis Smith

    The avalanche of musicians leaving us continues as the underappreciated trumpeter, Louis Smith, apparently passed away a few days ago.
  9. FS: Grachan Moncur Mosaic

    Why is nobody grabbing this? Absolute steal. If I didn't have this, I'd be on it in a heartbeat.
  10. Farewell Robin Williams

    Had the chance to meet him once back in the late 90s. Down to earth and a supremely kind individual. RIP.
  11. Tim Hudson wasn't too shabby the other day either.
  12. Looks to be back in stock, however temporarily.
  13. Wax Poetics back issue sale

    A bunch of 'em as low as $.99, which is a great deal considering the cover price and their value & collectability in the secondary market. Looks like some issues are sold out already and prices changed as well.
  14. One of the most creative and consistent hip-hop groups as well as breaking records longevity-wise...
