I took this to my friend's place today and it got the thumbs up.
Paul Beaudry & Pathways - Americas
I'm new 'round these parts
Listening to a lot of jazz recently. KFSR FM is our local 'College Radio Station' for Fresno State. Its programming is mostly Jazz. While you need to look elsewhere for Albert Ayler and/or Anthony Braxton, KFSR has a very wide range of accessible Jazz, including lots of vocal and big-band jazz. They stream world-wide, though to be honest their broadcast signal is noticeably better, if your tuner can pick it up:
Meanwhile, back at the record store, I recently acquired two Miles Davis reissues on Vinyl. 'Agharta' and 'Pangaea':
'4 Men with Beards' claims these two, though the packaging states that Sony manufactured the discs. They were, as far as I can tell, very well mastered on silent vinyl. I'm only really getting into Electric Miles after all these years [Jack Johnson excepted] Rasputin's has other two-lp sets of Electric Miles on LP, including 'Dark Magus', for little over $20 each two-LP set. These are on my shopping list next time I get flush. I'd recommend these LPs in a heartbeat.
Been making my way through this one over the last few days:
Chick Corea - Circling In
I bought it mostly for the sessions with Dave Holland, Anthony Braxton, and Barry Altschul, but there's also some great stuff here with Miroslav Vitous and Roy Haynes.
The third disc of the new Coleman Hawkins Mosaic set, for the second time. Awesome!
Yes, that trio is PHENOMENAL! As are their 2 discs on ECM.
Looking for suggestions of original TRIO works by Toshiko Akiyoshi - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toshiko_Akiyoshi
I know she is well known for her Big Band works but I know little about her best works within a trio. Would appreciate opinions.

Quote from Ronflugelguy on part 5
If you're asking about the Affinity label then no. They are WB pressings.
No, Bill Evans/ Toots Thielemans- Affinty on WB label.
I found a sealed copy of this 1972 double live album recently at a record show for $2. There are some very good moments on here.
Pete Cosey essentially made his reputation from these two albums, Dark Magus, and Get Up With It. He died yesterday. R.I.P.
Chick Corea ~ Inner Space
2 lp complilation of everything Chick recorded for Atlantic
Ah! of course. No, I haven't picked that one up yet. I have a few Toots albums including his first on lp but I've never heard Affinity and no one I know has ever had much to say about it. I should get it anyway just to hear it. I do like Toots and respect his skill set but in reality I probably wouldn't play it much and I'm running out of space to store lps.
The Many Sides of Toshiko from 1957 is very good.
Technically incorrect. Chick's "Tones for Joan's Bones" was recorded for Vortex, an Atlantic subsidiary. Hubert Laws' "Laws' Cause" was, however, recorded for Atlantic proper.
How is this title? Considering getting this title on 45.
Jeremy Pelt - Soul
Tom Harrell - Time of the Sun
Played about 15 albums since last night but been too busy to post them.
Lee Morgan ~ Charisma
Blue Note BST-84312
Conrad Herwig - The Latin Side of Herbie Hancock
Very interesting. Tyner takes the standards a little off from center, and there's Elvin and Art right there.
Sound is okay. Not the best Impulse recording, or the worst.
Miguel Zenon - Alma Adentro: The Puerto Rican Songbook
Now that my jazz collection has been thinned out, I think I'll try some Japanese jazz artists next.
Here is one I picked up earlier this year.
Jazz Workshop presents The Sextet
Produced and music directed by Junko Onishi
Bert Myrick ~ Live 'n Well
