Yeah, I hope these programs stay alive. The music deserves this type of care and attention.
Unfortunately he's not making it up this way on this tour. Is his father a player?
Definitely. I'm sure there's something in the works but nothing new that I can find for now. I'd welcome that Contemporary series, and hope there are some new and unearthed titles. They did announce a second series of RCA Living Stereo but no Jazz. He seems to really be focusing on that Ultra Tape line now.
Yes, father and grandfather were musicians.

Yesterdays on The Song Book is just incredible!
Hopkins in his later years, his earlier stuff is much better in my opinion. The Ervin and Golson are excellent.
Yes, as already mentioned.
Last night he played soprano sax and flute.
An amazing concert (complete, in two parts) by Jim Hall and Scott Colley (b). If you are fans and have never seen/heard this, it's well worth the play I'm telling you! Not much hi-fi, but I happen to like the very low-lit, old school looks.
Awesome performance from both players, and a beautiful set list, including a mesmerizing, brooding, futuristic sounding composition I had never heard before at around 40:00 of Part 2.
From the recordings I have heard so far, Jim to me had two peaks as a guitar player, at around age 45, and here, 20 years later!
Miles Smiles definitely needs an update, just got the Speakers Corner pressing and it sounds like the source they mastered it from has been around the block a few times. There's no depth or body to Wayne's sax and "Herb's" piano sounds flat. Good record though.
I winder if he’s related to Gary? I could find anything online but given the Seattle connection, I wouldn’t be surprised.
Got got my AP reissue of Lee Morgan Volume 3. This is a fabulous album and great pressing. Must listen!!
Lee Morgan - trumpet
Benny Golson - tenor saxophone
Gigi Gryce - alto saxophone, flute
Wynton Kelly - piano
Paul Chambers - bass
Charlie Persip - drums
Believe it or not I've never heard either the Hopkins or Golson before so I'm looking forward to them. That lineup on the Golson, oy! Interesting how many Blues and Bluesville titles were in this Prestige series. It would have been nice if they had just done an entire set of those titles.
Thanks for that, I love to see these types of stories, far too rare these days. He played here last December but it was sold out before we could get the time off. Actually, tomorrow would be exactly 1 year.
It probably has, and that may be the reason for it not having been done before by MoFi. Although, SC would likely use a different tape due to their location. The SC version isn't perfect but it's the best we have outside of a clean OP, or a MoFi from a good source. It's better than any of the digital releases I've heard and better than the MOV. I just checked my email and it was just in May when I was told that they would not be doing Miles Smiles, let's hope that has changed.
I just sort of assumed, thinking it would be far too coincidental for there to be no connection.
I'm listening to this fine and mellow drag again right now, noticing how differently it sounds from listening to it last night in the dark with no distractions. The character of the music is conveyed so much more when proper attention is given and it's not just wallpaper. Still a great listen, but not the same.
Looking forward to this:
