    Inner City (US) did many LP issues that were licensed from foreign labels which they had no involement in creating. I think they did some original work. It was great when they were coming out, as they selected good material.

    I love this late Tapscott album along with Thoughts of Dar es Salaam. It got me exploring the earlier Tapscott and luckily this was during a time of little interest in records. I managed to pick up quite a number of his records on Nimbus and other labels. It's a shame these are now very expensive and rare. Luckily some of them are being reissued recently in decent sound I think.

    I really liked Simmons' earlier albums and more recently I found an original pressing of this album in nice condition. Unfortunately I found the music hard going; it was a lot more free and avant garde than some of his other albums which had a nice balance between 'in' and 'out' playing. Too bad, I really wanted to buy it.

    :love:

    My favorite Getz album. Chick Corea is absolutely exquisite from start to finish.
     
  7. Indeed a fine record but Getz was a man of many styles during his career and there are others which are on the same level.

    Freddie Hubbard - Red Clay

    Japanese Blu-Spec CD from 2013... kind of disappointing that there is a little digital pop/blip/glitch in the first 3 seconds of track one, kind of mars that iconic opening. Even the Japanese aren't perfect at making CDs all of the time!

    A couple of weeks ago I stepped out of the jazz carousel. I've been playing rock music mostly and it's been hard to get back. Haven't found that perfect horse to jump in the carousel again.

    My soul misses jazz. Can't remember a longer period, in the last 2 decades, without jazz.

    Anyway, I still read this thread daily. I don't have any kind of doubts that it's the best and most enduring thread of the entire forum. Humor, respect, great discussions, genuine posts...

    So keep on writing I'll jump back in soon.

    PS: @Mirror Image, the "sweet rain" album. That sure is a favorite of mine too. And not only a Stan favorite.

    I'm doing it constantly. Right now I've jumped into neo-soul; drinking coffee and playing Moonchild's newest album Little Ghost, which arrived two days ago.

    But I'm not worried, because it has happened to me before. I know I'll get back to jazz again.

    While wandering not quite aimlessly about YouTube listening to the latest from Martin Taylor, Stefane Grapelli's guitarist from the late 1970's). I stumbled upon a gem in the form of a guitar duet plus acoustic bass. Martin Taylor and the powerhouse flatpicker Bryan Sutton tear it up on "Napa Swing".
    There are really some great musicians who can cross and meld genres, contributing to the future of good music in new ways. Which I think is a crux of a biscuit, listening to the progress in those "alloyed forms" as well as the positive effects to the genres of the constituent melders. Plus it's great to listen to.

    It has the emotional shadings of a rock record.

    Recorded shortly before Waldrons death it is a deeply moving tribute to his pal Billie H
    The emotions are raw. If you like Shepps Steeplechase records of the late 70s this has some of that minimalist feel and the two of them wrench the emotions from each note.
    Its truly raw moving stuff.

    If you like neo-soul, then definitely.

    Take a listen yourself

    In this post in another thread, I summarized my perception of 3 different versions of Agharta (and Pangaea) that I own and am aware of. Maybe my descriptions correspond to the versions you have(?). I've kept all these variations as they offer something a little different from one another and Agharta in particular is a real favorite of mine for decades.

    Ach du liebe zeit, how many versions you have! Hank mobley its sounding super relaxed here, some albums he its more like this and others more rough, do you agree?
     
  25. I had the version once with the silver - blue stripes and the portrait of Horace. But I gave it away.
    When seeing your copy I did remember about the cover variations and looked them up at Discogs.
    Here is a critic and rating of this LP from there
    Decent Hard Bop - Silver's first album after leaving the Jazz Messengers recorded with two different ensemble's. Mobley isn't one of my favourite sax players, but here his velvety sounds work well against Silver's soulful piano. My highlights are the bluesy title track, "How Long Has This Been Going On", and "Shoutin' Out".
