    I will check that out....his story and music have definitely piqued my curiosity.......I'm fairly new to the Jazz that was prominent in the 40's-60's .....I have always liked fusion jazz but nothing from the earlier era.....I'm currently obtaining albums by artists that are considered "must have" albums and this one was getting off track of that objective..but I really liked what I heard of Cliffords...

    There are many great recordings to get. Offhand, I suggest you try something by Sonny Rollins from the 1950's. Prestige label or Bluenote label first, but the Contemporary label or Riverside label Rollins are also excellent. Be sure to try Monk and Bud Powell as well. The list is long

    I have The Immortal Clifford Brown in a 2 LP Mercury mono box set. Appears to be from 1964. I got it 2nd hand in Oxfam for £25. Good stuff.

    Funny. I had a Dave Grusin thing in the early '80s but went off him because I thought he was too smooth.

    Obviously the mastertape sonics and condition of tapes 10 or 15 years later are going to play a role in the sound of any given disc. The vinyl surface is high quality and much quieter than the US vinyl. Also unlike the Japanese pop rock titles they don't add an analytical or SS edge to the sound. The basic sound is quite warm. I buy them with confidence and haven't been disappointed with Japan jazz titles from King, Toshiba or Victor. I would stick with pressings made in the 70s and early 80s though.

    That album is addictive. Fleurette Africaine (African Flower) is one of the most haunting pieces ever recorded.

    I can certainly vouch for that. I have forced myself away from it now but I will return soon no doubt.

    One of the greatest jazz LPs of the 60s and all three musicians are great. Sadly it is afflicted with one of the worst engineering jobs of any major label of that era as well. The Classic Records 200G Quiex is the best salvage job vinyl pressing although a 70s era French repressing isn't terrible either. I have no idea what happened. The CD issue threw extra tracks in there because of the short length of the original LP. I couldn't tell what disc was being played in the post.

    JUST WANT TO ADD: this is an excellent collection of Django in great sound. The numbers with electric guitar are especially great.

    There are stories about the dispute between Mingus and Roach (likely caused by Mingus) during this session; Mingus storming out; and Duke chasing down Mingus and trying to soothe him to save the session. Duke wrote about it. It is great that Duke saved the day, and too bad that this trio did not record again. If so, Duke would have clearly revealed his talents at the keyboard in new ways.

    If a person can play angry bass, that was Mingus on Money Jungle. But quite frankly it was necessary at that stage to provoke or goad Ellington into extending himself. Even on the cover picture Duke doesn't look too healthy.

    I don't get that from the session. Duke was on top of the two youngsters. He didn't need goading, they needed to figure out how to play for him . . . if anyone needed to adapt or be extended in my opinion it was Charlie and Max.

    This is a fantastic session. The sound doesn't matter to me, I'm always drawn in. I sometimes listen to "Piano in the Foreground" in the same listening session. . . .

    I am currently looking at vinyl versions as I want a 'proper' version. I only have the 2013 EU CD with bonus tracks so far.

    I am not sure what you mean by proper version. Is that original pressing or simply a straight repressing with only the original tracklist?
     
  24. Phillip Walch

    Phillip Walch Forum Resident

    Sorry I mean original track listing. Although I like extra tracks it is not usually how I like to approach an album for the first time or one I don't know inside out. So I currently am not playing those tracks that are extras. I know I know it is just hitting stop but I like an album to come to its natural finish. I don't especially mind originals or repress as long as they sound good.
