  1. Another Waldron I am still looking for is this: https://www.discogs.com/Mal-Waldron-Both-Sides-Now/release/9823790 anyone?
  2. Definitely the Harper set, that would be great! And as Soulpope mentioned: Waldron’s ‘70’s output on Japanese labels. That would be one hell of a release including -Spanish Bitch - The Call - The Reminiscent Suite - Number Nineteen - Tokyo Bound and more great stuff. Best in both cases (Harper and Waldron) would be if there will be some previously unreleased stuff!

    I never saw Harper live unfortunately and I am afraid I never will. I don’t thinks he or The Cookers ever play in the Netherlands in the future. Jazz is dead over here. Or maybe jazz is not but a lot of fans are. David Murray was able to fill just about half a Bimhuis last year. That says enough I guess. Glad to see he has more fans around the world. He is one of my very favorite artists too. One of the few sax players that is able to play pretty much inside but still sound deeply intense. And indeed I haven’t found one record that is bad although I really don’t like the singing on the DIW record.

    I am listening to these two on my recently bought vinyl and I am blowed away by them. Expected them to be good but not this good. Started with Knowledge of Self and decided instantly I want to be a Billy Harper completist (which is probably easier than being a Waldron completist ). I thought Love on the Sudan would be a bit less interesting but it is just as good. What also blows my mind is that the whole band is killing, but that part from Kenny Barron and Mickey Tucker, I really don't know any of the other guys. Everett Hollins, Malcolm Pinson, Greg Maker: they all seem to have played with Harper only (small exception here and there). Anyway it is time for a Billy Harper '70's recordings Mosaic: with all the stuff he made for Denon, Baystate and MPS and maybe include some Capra Black too! Vinyl quality is excellent but this deserves a new remaster . I know Felser is a huge fan, Hutchfan and Soulpope also as I can recall?
  5. I am in again. Can’t get enough Shaw, especially not with this group.

    That whole group is just: wow. Mosaic should do something with it.
  7. Ah i see. Yeah shipping prices are ridiculous these days.
  8. There are quite a few for sale on Discogs: https://www.discogs.com/Stanley-Turrentine-In-Memory-Of/release/5297439

    Most of the Baystate Spiritual Series are a not cheaper and easier to get. A pity. Probably because the demand for this Harper disc is higher?
  10. That is so awful. Every fathers biggest fear.
  11. Oh yeah AbdulLah Ibrahim’s African Recordings. That is great stuff! sorry I did not attend. Promised myself because I pittied the low attendance with my BFT and now I have the lame excuse I really had no time... but I really hadn’t.
  12. Thanks I will. No I have to wait impatiently for the post companies to do a proper job 😁
  13. Time for some Gap Sealer! Happy bday mr. Heath!
  14. Everything was fine after all. Better than that even: he really undergraded his items. Now that’s rare on Discogs, altough Japanese sellers seem to be the most reliable. Found myself a copy of this one finally today! Very, very happy 😃
  15. The only jazz record my local store sold! Still has a special place in my heart
  16. Very curious how everybody liked this one. I was so excited when I heard about the release but to be honest I am a little disappointed. It’s not bad but none of the musicians sound really inspired. It sounds like an ordinary jamsession and I miss interaction. Anyone else who feels the same way or am I just very wrong?
  17. I am very careful with my vinyl. I’ve got Charles Tolliver’s Music Inc. Reissue on Pure Pleasure Records (Strata East). It’s one of my favorite records and with 30 euros a pop they aren’t really cheap. So there I was, taking the record very carefully of my player and in just a second... I dropped it, tried to catch in scratch it all across the wall. Now I won’t repeat the swearing words I used but boy did I hate myself that very moment.... still hoping for a miracle I took a good look at the record hoping it was ok but there were scratches all over unfortunately. there is no protection against human stupidity unfortunately
  18. Yes there is: Voice of Africa Blues for a Hip King African Sun Tintinyana The Mountain All music taken from these LP’s: Mannenberg is Where It’s Happening Abdullah Ibrahim & Ekaya Black Lightning Natural Rythm African Herbs Bra From Kilimanjaro Peace Underground In Africa Blues for a Hip King Dollar Brand Plays Sphere Jazz Dollar Brand + 3 This is highly recommended music from one of his best era’s. A great look into the South African jazz scene of those days. Quite a lot of it is OOP and sometimes quite rare.
  19. Excellent choice. I’ve got the whole series on Kaz. A good way to collect most of the fantastic ‘African recordings’ with Kippie, Robbie and other African talents.
  20. Jeez I wish I had the budget to have blind picking as a hobby. Unfortunately for me it is a very serious consideration in what to buy and what to let go. A possibility to try the album first is very helpful to me. oh and Erwbol: just pass them to me 😜 just let me know when you throw them away and I will stand aside your trashbin 👍😉
