  1. Available to view on PBS website apparently until 11-18 https://www.pbs.org/video/ron-carter-finding-the-right-notes-p8s8vx/
  2. Finished the book. To be clear, while the search for a specific fictionalized iconic record is central to the book, this is also a detective or mystery book. There are murders that occur as a result of the search and the main character solves them. The vinyl search is London and England centric but I found it easy to relate to the author's depiction of charity shops and bramble sales. Whether because the author is a vinyl collector himself or had great advisors, he accurately (to me) portrays the hunt for a specific collectable along with the arcane music and vinyl knowledge of the active collector. There is also seemingly knowledgeable presentation of audio equipment and vinyl cleaning equipment.
  3. half way through this book, which is the first in a current 5 book series: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26109016-written-in-dead-wax Hilarious. guy knows his jazz records and record collecting. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Cartmel
  4. Just got back from a 47 day trip to the Faroe Islands and Iceland
  5. yup missed that. wrong search terms
  6. Have been out of the county for nearly seven weeks. catching up on new releases and was reading dusty groove. Saw announcement for this previously unreleased Tapscott album recorded for Flying Dutchman. Doesn't seem to be any discussion as yet: https://mrbongo.bandcamp.com/album/the-quintet
  7. If you have a Prime membership than you should be able to watch Prime streaming for free. I know I did. See: https://people.com/tv/prime-video-subscription-benefits/. There is also Amazon Freevee (?), which used to be the IMDb channel and stuff there is shown with ads. I can access this through my Prime app. The new Bosch show, Bosch Legacy is shown on Freevee (?).
  8. Bosch in the original show mentioned Frank Morgan more than once. Pepper was also popular. As was already mentioned this is consistent with the books. In the original shows There was one scene where Bosch went to the evidence room, I think, the cop in the room was playing jazz and Bosch exhibiting his knowledge mentioned that Jack Teagarden was about to play a solo.
  9. https://sluchaj.bandcamp.com/album/respiration Does not appear to be on YouTube.
  10. Harbour: "Still pissed that those two recent Tapscott things were vinyl only." IF you refer in part to the Tapscott Michael Session Avignon 1989 date offered on Bandcamp, that session was made available as a cd in Japan in early 2021.
  11. Lat night, Wayne Horvitz and Sara Schoenbeck at The Avalon Lounge in Catskill performed tunes from their 2020 release on Songlines. They are on a small tour. In addition, Mat Maneri and Bobby Previte did a 30 minute improv.
  12. If we are talking cds rather than lps, at $21.97 Importcds.com seems to have the lowest price. Including shipping and handling and tax, my total cost was $26.96. Importcds still had copies of the Gil Evans when I ordered earlier this morning. However, it indicated the Tyner/Hubbard was on back order. Importcds priced both issues the same. Amazon.com appears to have both. It lists the Tyner/Hubbard at, $26.99 + tax. As for the Gil Evans, amazon currently wants $29.99 + tax. At a total cost of $32.38, I saved a $5+ with importcds.
  13. When I was 12 I liberated Kind of Blue from my brother's lp collection. Had no idea what jazz was but knew I like that lp. Skip forward 6 years and I picked up my second jazz album-"Memphis Underground". still had no concept as to what jazz was-just liked the music.
