What vinyl are you spinning right now??


Recommended Posts


Trying to decide if I want to spring for the Super Deluxe Edition that recently came out. The OG vinyl has always sounded so good to me, I want to justify the purchase but can't convince myself. The CD version I have is adequate but sounds slammed to me, unlike the vinyl which makes sense given the "newness" of cds at the time. Also trying to decide if I want to get Emancipation on vinyl given my affection for that album (strangely I know but probably my favorite Prince album) but never being happy with the cds sound.

More "Mr. 5 x 5"!


The Jazz Odyssey of James Rushing, Esq. (Columbia, 1957)

Thanks, kh158, for prompting me to pull these LPs out with your post above.  I hadn't listened to Jimmy Rushing in a while.  A terrible oversight on my part!  ;) 


I'm thankful I did not trigger a trombone choir themed listening party.

The Vinny Golia Large Ensemble - Facts Of Their Own Lives [Nine Winds] limbering up for the imminent arrival of the 3LP set


Beaver Harris 360 Degree Experience - A Well Kept Secret [Shemp]


Barefield/Holland/Tabbal Trio - Transdimensional Space Window [Trans African Records]  It's a lot better than the cover suggests.


Anteloper - Tour Beats, volume 1 [International Anthem]


Joshua Abrams - Magnetoception [Eremite] not noticed previously that this isn't credited to The Natural Information Society, only the latter ones in the series are. but what a series and band/concept.

NP a recent dollar-bin find:


Mongo Santamaria - Soul Bag (Columbia, 1968)
featured soloists: Sonny Fortune (as, bs); Hubert Laws (ts, fl); Luis Gasca (tr)

Mongo's version of JB's "Cold Sweat" is off the chain.  Mongo and Pretty Purdie get down! :g

Delightful solo piano.  Most of the music has a ruminative, "after hours" vibe -- like he's playing for himself, rather than an audience.

And note the album cover photo. It seems to capture McShann at a moment when his glance is turned inward.

Image and music in perfect alignment.

Great ! This could have been recorded About the same period when I was lucky to see Jay McShann live. As much as I remember he was booked with a local Rhythm Section, and at one certain Moment in the last set the female singer Etta Scollo (from Sicilia) sat in for one song…...

this guy was No. 1 influence on Keith Emerson and Jon Lord.

So that's who I blame for my early teenage listening then.  Been looking for the culprit for a while now
