    With Sound Reason - Sonny Fortune (Atlantic) CD

    Dated 1979

    Another 24 bit disc issued as part of the Atlantic Jazz 1000 Best Collection series.

    A mixture of some lightweight style funk and a few pleasant enough easy listening pieces.

    There is really nothing on this recording to get excited about. Overall it is a rather disappointing album.

    Thesaurus - The Clare Fischer Big Band (Atlantic) CD

    Credits

    Dated 1969

    An excellent album, full of varied and interesting material with pieces written by Clare Fischer, Stewart Fischer, Lennie Tristano & Billy Strayhorn.

    The sound on the disc is perfect, and mastered in 24 bit. Issued as part of Atlantic's Jazz 1000 Best Collection series.

    This is the business!

    After giving this another listen it does sound much more pleasing and acceptable now than it did on initial hearing (with the exception of one or two rather bland moments).

    I will try to take it! I own the Japanese shm-cd release of 2017. Wonderful album, but that edition has a different track list from the original.
    I think it doesn't exists anymore like new or sealed. Probably it is available only used, but if it were in good condition...

    (LP Atlantic German Press ATL 60 108) 1975 .... recorded December 1974 @ Atlantic Recording Studios New York .... worth the ticket of entry for a sublime reading of "Duke Ellington`s Sound Of Love" .... a great sounding German quality press of this late Mingus gem ....

    Found this one in my favourite record store today - I've been looking for an affordable copy since 2014. I have the HDTracks 24/192 which sounds good, if not a tad bright. This one on the other hand sounds just "right". I didn't realise that the original first press came out on Liberty, because I had the 1965 recording date in mind (a year before Blue Note was sold to Liberty), but forgot the LP wasn't released until early 1967. And I got it for cheap, knowing what sellers demand for lesser copies than this one...

    Tonight's commuting music...this one's finally starting to grow on me even though I still can't stand the title track:

    "Fall" is probably my favourite on this LP.

    Bill Evans Trio
    - Bill Evans at Town Hall, Volume One

    Does anyone know why Verve designated this "Volume One"? There is no "Volume Two" that I can find. Have been getting into Bill's Verve studio and live recordings in a trio context. Something clicked for me regarding this era after listening to so much of the Riverside era during the last year. Looking forward to getting the Resonance releases as well.

    Just looked at MM's site, it's about $65, which isn't too bad. I guess shipping is where the cost become too high?
