    Thanks guys! Live At The Village Vanguard and Live in Europe are the records that attract me the most on this moment. Will dig into it
  2. It’s a nice record 👍 I only know Sonelius Smith on this record and he is great here. But bassist Milton Suggs (unknown to me) is also playing very strong. Pure Pleasure’s reissue is one hell of a remaster. Spotless sound. And Strata wasn’t exactly known for good sound quality...
  3. Yes definitely my choice too. Love that record!

    What about mr. Howard? Bought an LP version of the Black Ark yesterday and like the first time I heard it: I really dig that stuff. He doesn't get much attention here on the board. His discography is mostly spreaded on obscure labels. His live albums seem to be more liked on Rateyourmusic. What's your favorite Howard part from the Black Ark?
  5. With these tunes, I feel blessed already!
  6. Awareness was one of my christmas/birthday gives by my wife this year. On vinyl to be precisely. What an awesome album. Intense stuff! Terry is on fire, so is Cowell

    Mal Waldron

    With Spanish Bitch, it’s the only record I payed more than 60 euros for in my life. My copy was 75 dollars incl. shipping. A record needs to be very special to me to pay that amount and The Reminiscent Suite definitely is. Together with Trane, Mal is my big hero. And where Trane has always been far away (I was born in 1990) I could have seen Mal in the Bimhuis in 2001 but I wasn’t aware of him at that age. Unfortunate and a funny feeling he was there playing 28 kilometers from my home but I didn’t even knew his name then
  8. I do like all those songbooks on Clef but also think it is very much of the same thing....

    Mal Waldron

    Never liked the stuff with the singers indeed but the rest makes it definitely worth while. My personal favorites from this box are Our Collines A Treasure, Update, the duets with Lacy and the session with Braxton ( and just like you, I am no Braxton fan). I paid 28 dollars for mine On jazzmessengers. That’s a steal anyhow. The Reminiscent Suite is one of my all time favorite jazz records. That session is just stunning...
  10. Yeah that definitely sounds like my cup of tea! I haven’t heard Hutcherson play a bad note in the ‘60’s. You are the one and only official Hutchfan but I also count myself among his fans
  11. I can imagine that! So he still played in those days?
  12. Yeah Tristeza is a great record. To me, his work on Pablo never did much to me. I prefer the Verve and MPS stuff.
  13. Ok Hutchfan you convinced me to buy another one. Well maybe with Oblique I go for the cheaper cd version
  14. Fully agree with Justin V. I don’t see how being an artist or musician yourself makes it ok to be disrespectful about other musicians. Cause the remarks about anti jazz, that is what I see as insulting. It made me laugh that Allen was talking about ‘insulting’ remarks. Differing in taste is a whole other thing. I can fully understand people don’t like Peterson’s style. Hell I can fully understand people not liking my favorite jazz artists like Mal Waldron or Billy Harper. Isn’t that wat makes jazz the greatest music: all those styles, all those different streams and different tastes? I am personally not a big fan of mr. Allen Lowe’s music but I still do not disrespect him, let alone call it anti jazz or some other insulting word. And as I stated before: it always stuns me that people from the free/avant-garde scene make such remarks about colleagues. Always thought people in that scene were open minded but have been dissapointed more than once.
  15. Promised myself not to buy this overpriced stuff but ok im definitely in for: Bobby Hutchersons Kicker! The cd reissue goes from 30 euros so not much of a difference. I prefer this vinyl reissue.
  16. Not really Ebay madness but some Discogs madness.... Check out the October top 30 most expensive items.... Quite a lot of jazz in it: Fats Navarro's Memorial Album for 1318 dollars, Horace Parlan's Us Three for 1675 dollars, Clifford Jordan's Blowing in from Chicago for 2300 dollars. An the top one: Albert Ayler's Something Different for 2300 dollars?!?!?! You must really not know how to spend your money if you pay 2300 dollars for a very subpar Ayler record.... https://blog.discogs.com/en/top-30-most-expensive-items-sold-in-discogs-marketplace-for-october-2019/?utm_source=homepage&utm_medium=discogs&utm_campaign=top_30_2019_12_10
  17. For more than that. It’s a great record.
  18. Never understood all the hatred against the good man or his music. Sure, everybody can hear this guy is no big innovator nor is he the most creative pianist. But the guy can really play and most of all: you can hear joy in his playing. Sad to see fellow musicians making such narrow minded remarks like fake-jazz.... like that even exists. I can understand if something is not your style or cup of tea but to make such degrading comments... Did not expect those kind of words from somebody from the free/avant- scene. Anyway, mindblowing or world changing definitely no. But enjoyable to myself: yes it is. I like his bands with Brown/Thigpen and Sam Jones/Louis Hayes. So that’s mostly his ‘60’s stuff. Try not tapping your foot on the Sound of the Trio record. Just a lovely no nonsense jazz session. I sometimes need that kind of jazz and all apart from that: like Ken Dryden mentioned, he was a warm and gentle person. A guy who dedicated his life to the music.
  19. Yes, Bridgewater, Buster Williams, Mickey Roker, Stanley Cowell, Woody Shaw, Eddie Enderson and more of that... can’t go wrong with these guys
  20. I’ll keep them on my wishlist, thanks! Already had a feeling these albums were great.
  21. That’s a pity I was recently searching for a thread about him but couldn’t find anything. Was doubting to buy the Awareness and other Mainstream album. Not really a well known player but the personell on those dates look very good.
  22. Is on my Christmas wish list. Hope Santa will be generous. It’s also my birthday so if that ain’t a good reason to give me some Tolliver....
