My copy arrives today.

Going to see him at the Lensic Theater in November? I thought about it, but probably won't travel for it since he is at the Big Ears Festival next year, which I'm planning on attending.

Three listens this morning to chronicle. Did a tube swap in my ZROCK2 that is giving me interesting results, and my little furry companion Fiona sleeping on my chest caused me to have a fifteen minute nap in the middle. . . which is probably a good thing.

First

Miles Davis "Filles De Kilimanjaro" Mobile Fidelity Lab SACD

This is one of my favorite recordings ever and this is my favorite digital version.

Then:
Vandever "Regrowth" New Amsterdam cd

Kalia Vandever: compositions and trombone
Immanuel Wilkins: alto saxophone
Lee Meadvin: guitar
Paul Cornish: piano
Nick Dunston: bass
Connor Parks: drums

Interesting music. Kalia Vandever's compositions are interesting as is her playing and there's Immanuel Wilkins here. . . a sign of quality.

Now:
Yusef Lateef "Eastern Sounds" OJC RVG Edition cd

Great music. There are numerous criticisms of Blue Note's RVG series, some of which I can agree to on some issues, but the Prestige series is overall very good sounding.

I've heard a few before that didn't really floor me. Wilkins led me to this one and he's possibly the highlight, though the trombone playing is quite good.

Right now

Svensk Jazzhistoria Vol. 5 – Swedish Jazz 1943–47 – Jazzen Anfaller disc 1

This series of releases presenting the history of jazz in Sweden are excellent--I have eleven volumes, all I think Caprice Records have released so far.

I like that Vandever album a lot.  I think I may know of it because of an earlier post of yours. In which case, thank you

It is pretty new to me, so I think someone else may have led you to it. ;)
