  1. Two older gentlemen have fished by the same stretch of river year in year out, every day without fail. Then one day one of them does not appear. The following day things are back to normal, both men sitting there together. "I missed you yesterday. Where were you, were you ill?" "Nope, not ill. I got married." "Married? My goodness, she must be a real beauty for you to miss a day of fishing." "No, not really, most people describe her as ugly as sin." "Oh. OK, well she must be a real kind lady for you to miss a day of fishing." "I don't think so. She appears to have very few friends. Her family has disowned her, none of them turned up at the wedding." "Oh. Well, she must be a quiet, gentle soul for you to miss a day of fishing for her." "Not really, all the people who do know her describe her as aggressive and cantankerous." "Gosh. Well she must be a great cook for you to miss a day of fishing for her." "Can't cook. She can't even make beans on toast." "Is she great in the sack, then? She must be for you to miss a day of fishing." "I don't know. We’ve agreed to sleep in separate rooms at opposite ends of the house." "Well, then, surely she's loaded? She must at least be rich for you to miss a day of fishing." "Oddly enough she's penniless, and I had to agree to pay off all her debts." "Good grief, man! So what is it about this woman? It must be something for you to miss a day of fishing." "She's got worms."
  2. I think it's mostly breath condensation.
  3. If it was engineered in a lab it gives an idea of what exactly they're doing in there; you and me will probably never know either way, but I'm sure some level of government knows pretty well what happened.
  4. Presto has the hi res 24/96 download for 1/3 of the price of the 2lp set.
  5. Here's some insight into the arcane structure of one of the big three: https://www.universalmusic.com/universal-music-classics-jazz-announces-new-global-structure/ Interesting off-handed reference to Blue Note at the end. BN seems to fit in the Capitol Music Group like shoes on the fish pictured above.
  6. The weird thing I don't quite understand is that, while classical music and jazz seem to be just about neck and neck in sales and overall consumption ( at the bottom), we seem to be enjoying a golden age of classical reissues including many obscure recording artists besides the mega-boxes that seem to take more and more space in my house, while in jazz it's crickets... Not sure how many albums Blue Note has released in its history, but if they would put out everything in a series of 100 cd boxes, I'd be interested.
  7. They came out on labels like Avid, Enlightenment, etc. Looking at some of these sets on amazon.ca I noticed something strange: they have in the "Manufacturer" and "Label" fields Universal Music, or Universal Music Canada: https://www.amazon.ca/Classic-Albums-1954-1960-Clifford-Brown/dp/B00PCWGAFU https://www.amazon.ca/Complete-Albums-Collection-1956-64-5CD/dp/B0124KY5RC/ https://www.amazon.ca/Twelve-Classic-Albums-Eric-Dolphy/dp/B00NW6KONW/ Is this a case of if you can't beat them join them?
  8. If you missed out on this, it seems to be in stock for a reasonable price at amazon.de: https://www.amazon.de/Miles-Davis/dp/B002EOF7U8/ref=pd_sim_36?pd_rd_w=j8b66&pf_rd_p=9a7fe8f3-0fa4-47a4-8b98-93a5088bcc79&pf_rd_r=QHFYGMQVW3TFJYWXHG97&pd_rd_r=1ecaf68e-ee42-4c89-80ba-4dd4d24edbf6&pd_rd_wg=uFsbR&pd_rd_i=B002EOF7U8&psc=1

  10. https://www.talkclassical.com/28254-new-releases.html This thread in the Talk Classical forum stays on top of these things pretty well.
  11. Preorder at HMV Japan with a release date of April 20; available right now on Tidal. The Beethoven Quartet played from the 30's to the 70's, these recordings are from the late 60's and early 70's, and somehow they sound like a single musician playing all the instruments at the same time. For me this is the greatest Beethoven quartet cycle ever recorded, very happy it's finally available!
