    Thanks for hipping me to that Coffey! I somehow missed it and now find out that it was an RSD vinyl release last year. Looks mighty tasty.

    For we hockey fans I believe this would be a "Hat Trick".

    Damn! Technically they were: Puttin' It Together :D Thanks for that, only wish they panned back a bit to capture more Elvin during the tune, after all it was his trio. And Jimmy burns it down.

    For those wanting more (and who wouldn't?) that tune and tour support comes from the following album, IMO Elvins finest and his debut on BN. (The title is misspelled on the viddy, it's "Sweet Little Maia", a tune by Jimmy, natch.

  4. Seriously folks, how many records did Jim Hall cut in Japan and for Japan only?

    There are truly amazing ones available to hear on Youtube, like Jazz Impressions of Japan... Live In Tokyo... both from one of his peak periods IMO, and also another one yet I can't remember the title of, which was more easy listening, strings laden and not much to my liking (little boy carrying an umbrella on the front cover). JIOJ apparently has never even been available on CD!

    So did he record any other ones over there? The first two titles I mentioned feature Don Thompson on bass and Terry Clarke on drums, my favorite rhythm section for Jim!

    I always thought (assumed) those were the only Japan dates, at least with Thompson and Clarke.
    But, though not recorded in Japan, you may like "Commitment" (released on Horizon Records), recorded just before those Japanese dates and again with Don Thompson and Terry Clarke! I agree with you about them, btw. :thumbsup:

    Jim Hall - Commitment

    The good news is that all 3 have been released on CD, fittingly in Japan, at least twice. The latest issues are very cheap too.

    CDJapan : Search result by ( jim hall ) OR "jim hall"

    Edit: I see that "Jazz Impressions of Japan" is showing as out of print, but it should be easy to find.

    I think Hall's JIOJ gets short shrift because of a much better know album of the exact same title, plus, it plays like an EP at only ~10' per side:

    Yes, great point and you reminded me! The latest CD version of Jim Hall's "Jazz Immpresions" has extra tracks and is now at least LP length (approx. 40 minutes) :thumbsup:

    Ashes To Ashes - Joe Sample (Warner Bros.) CD

    Recorded 1990

    Not one for lovers of 60s & 70s (Crusaders) funk but still worth a listen.

    Mastered by Doug Sax and presented in stunning sound quality

    Recorded August 23. 1957 in Hacky Sack. Coltrane's third but lots of room for Paul Chambers on this one.

    Wasn't on my radar at all until I got that Resonance comp Jazz Haunts & Magic Vaults (comp with a Bill Evans pre-order). Same with the live Hubbard. Those tunes they included on that sold me big time.

    AxiomAcoustics Relaxin' On The Axis

    Can anyone who has experience with the set comment on it please? Fred Kaplan's rview in Stereophile when it was originally release is very positive and states that the sound, recorded direct to 2-track, is "stunning". This was recorded 3 years after those great VV live sides and I don;t belive I've herad any of this material. Last copies seem to be around, and Pure Pleasure has it for 150# or about $200 USD, Elusive has it for $250. Seems reasonable considering that individual PP titles are $35.

    Features:
    • Limited Edition
    • Pressed at Pallas in Germany
    • Audiophile Re-Mastering
    • 7 180 Gram Vinyl Box Set
    • 16 Page Booklet with new notes by Alun Morgan and four interviews with Art Pepper by Les Tomkins from 1979, 1980 & 1981.
    • 17 Performances Previously Unavailable
    • Includes all the tracks released on the two Mole Jazz LPs: Blues For The Fisherman and True Blues

    Edit: Even those who do not have this particular set, how was the music being played by this band at the time?

    That comp sounds cool. Let me know on the sound of that Hub, the samples sound a bit didgy but the setlist looks tasty.

    Yeah man, he's been pretty active on the music scene here in Orygun and Greg Goebel plays locally quite often, nice to see him pop up here :thumbsup:

    Oh it's dodgy sound-wise that's for sure - at least the track on that comp is and I have to think the rest is the same...but the groove is there. I've certainly heard worse, but it's not bad enough that I wouldn't give it repeated listens (Coltrane's Inner Man is one like this, great music and playing but SQ effects how many time I return to it).
