  1. https://dlmediamusic.com/artists/charles-mcpherson-reverence/ This is now on my to-buy list. I'm curious what the other "live" releases planned are. I can't find anything on their Bandcamp website yet. Anybody else in? And have you got any other info?
  2. I'm going this weekend to see him at the Regattabar in Cambridge MA. I'm hoping he's in as good as health as possible.
  3. I hate that series, honestly. I got out of vinyl when I was a kid. I have ZERO desire to go back. I don't like any vinyl only release programs, unless the music stinks and then I don't feel bad. 🤣
  4. Almost anything by Muriel Grossman which I discovered a few years ago... Amazing. Anytime I need spirituality or grounding that's where I go. But/And it's really nice to have such a large library to "find" artists I haven't listened to in years. (At the moment I'm getting into Bill Frissell.)
  5. On a whim, I went to see Bill Frissell's Trio in Cambridge last night. Gregory Tardy (on sax, flute and I think bass clarinet) and Rudy Royston on drums. I had low expectations as I'm generally not a Frissell fan but the band blew me away. Tardy in particular was incredible. That band understands space and not playing over each other but with one another. It was really great.
  6. Thanks. I'm hoping these RSD releases are going to start appearing with CD versions on other sties soon.
  7. Thanks. I thought I saw it somewhere... but forgot to search... Old age and sleep deprivation....
  8. https://www.importcds.com/nina-simone-blackbird-the-colpix-recordings-1959-1963-import/5013929091832 So what do you think???? Obviously it's at a ridiculously attractive price. "First-ever luxury 8CD box set of expanded editions of the critically-acclaimed and Treasured Albums That The Iconic Nina Simone Recorded For Colpix Records From 1959 To 1963 Which Formed The Very Foundation For The Global Reach She Achieved As Peerless And Influential Artist Over The Decades That Followed. With An Astounding 107 Tracks Covering Over Seven Hours Of Music, The Original Albums 'The Amazing Nina Simone' (1959), 'Nina Simone At Town Hall' (1959), 'Nina At Newport' (1960), 'Forbidden Fruit' (1961), 'Nina At The Village Gate' (1962), 'Nina Simone Sings Ellington' (1962), 'Nina Simone At Carnegie Hall' (1963) And 'Folksy Nina' (Recorded In 1963, Released In 1964), Augmented By 29 Bonus Tracks Consisting Of Single Edits, Non-LP Sides And A Wealth Of Other Material Found In The Colpix Tape Vaults In The Early 2000's. Including the legendary performer's first readings of classics such as 'Wild Is The Wind', 'I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl', 'Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out' and 'Sinner Man' (key cuts that Nina would revisit over later albums after her Colpix tenure ended)..."
  9. I am so confused by what Zev Feldman is doing. I'm sure there are good reasons but it's confusing me. The upcoming RSD releases we've talked about in other threads (2 2cd sets Cannonball, Mal Waldron-Steve Lacy, and the Yuseef Lateef have all been posted to the Elemental Records Bandcamp site. (link below). It's European which significantly increases the cost of shipping the physical CDs. https://elementalmusicrecords.bandcamp.com/album/mal-waldron-steve-lacy-the-mighty-warriors-live-in-antwerp?from=fanpub_fnb https://elementalmusicrecords.bandcamp.com/album/yusef-lateef-quartet-the-1972-avignon-concert https://elementalmusicrecords.bandcamp.com/album/cannonball-adderley-poppin-in-paris-live-at-lolympia-1972 https://elementalmusicrecords.bandcamp.com/album/cannonball-adderley-burnin-in-bordeaux-live-in-france-1969 The Jazz Detective label which has many of the same releases but domestic versions/prices doesn't list any of them. https://jazz-detective.bandcamp.com/ The domestic versions of his prior sets are cheaper in part because of the shipping. Does anyone understand why he's got these two sites? Also one pet peeve of mine... is that at least one of the Cannonball and several of his prior Jamal sets could have fit on one physical CD. Isn't it cheaper to produce and sell one CD vs two CD sets? I mean I'm very happy he's getting this stuff out with regularity but I'm very confused about the different labels, prices, and CD strategies. Can anyone clue me in?
  10. Interesting.... Need more info though.
  11. Let me know if you find a Bandcamp link. I haven't been able to. The Tatum and Sonny are up for preorder, which I did.
  12. This one got my attention after I looked at it more... https://lydialiebman.com/index.php/2024/02/15/new-release-cannonball-adderley-burnin-in-bordeaux-live-in-france-1969-poppin-in-paris-live-at-lolympia-1972-record-store-day-exclusives-out-april-20-cd-digita/ This Record Store Day, Elemental Music will launch a pair of previously unreleased recordings by alto saxophone giant Cannonball Adderley, recorded Live in France. Burnin’ in Bordeaux (1969) and Poppin’ in Paris (1972), both special edition, double 180-gram LP sets will release exclusively for RSD on April 20, 2024. On April 26, the recordings will be available as deluxe, double CD sets, and digitally.
