Spinning some Wynton and Wes from RSD:
I am, can you hit me with a link? Thanx!
Edit: That was shipping for just one item, no minimum? Seems reasonable.
Weird - looks like it doubled in price...
Here it is for 23 euros. When I ordered this am, this was 10 euros, plus 3 in shipping which came to $16.70
Sahib's Jazz Party [Hqcd] - Sahib Shihab [Ltd.Papersleeve]: Amazon.de: Musik
Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers - Mosaic
1961, Blue Note Records
Music Matters 45rpm reissue
This was one of the two I missed. Can't get 'em all... I might go for the high Rez flavor...
John Jenkins w/ Kenny Burrell
D'oh! I see they're engaging in MMMP (Music Matters Market Pricing). Maybe I'll check at CDJapan? Thanks for that though.
I bought both the RSD LP and the CD and the CD does sound quite good. I'd not want to pass on the packaging and the booklet, which are quite nice.
Agree, the Monk and the Wes with Wynton are both excellent. I would grab them on CD if you can't track down the vinyl for the packaging.
NP: Keith Jarrett - Belonging.
There are some really nice piano solo's and drumming on side 2. Garbarek gets a little out there on Solstice also.
Lester Young/Count Basie
Classic 1936-1947 Count Basie And Lester Young Studio Sessions, Disc 1 [MD8-263]
Louis Armstrong Saturday Night!
The Complete Hot Five and Hot Seven Recordings (Disc 1-4 on shuffle)
Digging the yo! Miles ensemble right now...
Penthouse Serenade - Nat 'King' Cole (Capitol Jazz) CD
Nat 'King' Cole (piano & vocal), John Collins (guitar), Charlie Harris (bass), Bunny Shawker & Lee Young (drums), Jack Costanzo (bongos & congas).
Recorded 1952 / 5 tracks recorded 1955
A very classy sounding, mainly instrumental 19 track CD.
I have never previously bought anything with Nat 'King' Cole on vocal, so the 6 tracks that feature those ever so smooth (easy listening) vocal tones on this one are new territory for me.
Washington D. C., 1948 - Charlie Parker (Uptown) CD Flashback Series
A well presented package with 50 page booklet included. Everything housed in sturdy cardboard slipcase.
Barney Kessel / Ray Brown / Shelly Manne – Poll Winners Three! (Contemporary Records / OJC)
Porgy & Bess - Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong (Verve Originals) CD
Recorded 1957. LP released 1958
Left Alone - Mal Waldron (Bethlehem/Verse) CD
I found this online artricle on Mal Waldron to be very interesting...
Mal Waldron’s Ecstatic Minimalism
Give it a go if you're in the mood for a long and detailed read.
Verse (not to be confused with Verve ) announced a comprehensive Bethlehem reissue program a few years ago, but after the first few releases nothing was heard from them anymore...
Great article. Thanks for sharing the link.
And now, something completely different from Mal Waldron.......
Embryo: Steig Aus
Mal Waldron: Electric Piano
Organ, Mellotron: Jimi Jackson

I've abandoned any attempt at getting work done with this slab of Psych/Spiritual/Groove/Fusion/Jazz engaging all available grey matter:
I love all three of their releases, two on SACD surprisingly. I wish they'd have continued with this project.
This conjured images of:
Nat Adderley Work Song
Cannonball and Bill Evans Know What I Mean
