Liner notes are in Japanese but there is an asterisk after the 6th. The recording was made in 1992.
Joyce "Astronauta: Canções de Elis"
A chill pill I've needed before. Fits just right today.
Up until now John Zorn's catalogue has been unobtainable on streaming. Could I invite those of you with streaming services and a more or less conservative taste in Jazz to check out Full Fathom Five? I don't think you'll feel you've wasted your time.
Wow. I haven't revisited this recording in some time.
This dance remix disc will challenge your system. It's a good tool . . . if you get distortion-free clarity and a huge dynamic punch from this recording, your system can handle almost anything!
Monday Michiru "Alter Ego: Nexus Remixed"
I noticed the Tzadik catalog on Qobuz last night. Pretty exciting that I'll get a chance to check out some of the voluminous number of releases that I'm curious to hear but don't want to invest. Now if only the RogueArt catalog was streaming, or at least was available for an inexpensive annual sub like Dave Douglas' Greenleaf label is.
I have listened to Full Fathom Five three times just this morning. It's very good.
Tzadik on streaming is an incredible wealth of music to enjoy.
Well its possibly offensive to suggest anything like that since it is many people’s favourite Davis Quintet but i like pondering what ifs.
I once suggested to a close friend that Lightfoot should have put one verse of the Edmund Fitsgerald earlier in the song and it went over very badly LOL
It's very odd. The distortion appears on several of these records, and begins creeping in towards the halfway point of the affected sides, increasing as it gets to the end. I attributed it to a form of inner groove distortion, and futzed with the setup of my turntable and cartridge for quite a while but was never able to get any improvement. This isn't something that I experience with other records in my collection, so it seems oddly specific to this series of records. I've heard similar reports from others who have these records, but other people seem to be able to play them without issues. So....it's a bit of a mystery.
(OK - maybe I am actually sort of sure ...)
No doubt that Carter has been a great pillar of the SGQ. But I believe that Peacock likely would have a freer approach and it would have been intriguing for all jazz fans.
I don't know it. A good reason for listening to it on Spotify. A dream band whom I already own some excellent stuff of.
Miles Davis All Stars Quintet/ Sextet
NP: Renee Rosnes Trio - Face to Face (CD, somethin'else, 1989)
Renee Rosnes (p), Robert Hurst (b), Billy Drummond (d)
If it wasn't for this thread, I probably wouldn't know about Rosnes, and, admittedly, I still know very little. I recently found this 1989 Japanese trio release. It is very short (only about 26 minutes), but it is elegant and melodious. I am not sure if this early recording is representative for her work in the 90s and later, but I'm sure that I'll find out eventually.
Thats a great shot of Braxton!
Carlos Santana/John McLaughlin "Love, Devotion and Surrender" Sony Quad SACD
Just in from cdjapan.co.jp Sounds great.
I know Impex and Le Tres Jazz Club have put out some TBM reissues, but any other labels putting out (good) pressings of classic and deep cut Three Blind Mice records?
Well Mike listened to the Joe Henderson album and also sounded very good to me, no distortion. Fwiw I just put a new Rega Exact cart on my TT yesterday and my Neo speed box is running at exactly 33.33 so everything is recalibrated. The very last notes of the Kicker on side B have trumpet and trombone together, if there was distortion I would have expected it there. Maybe i got a lucky pressing?
Agreed, and your note is encouragement to go back and listen again.
Do post your findings if you get to hear the surround mix of the McCoy Tyner recording
Listening to the 4.0 quad mix now. First time hearing it beyond the stereo LP.
Today I finally have Caravanserai in quad too. Excited!
Hearing the 'a love supreme' chant floating apart from the drums (rear) and electric guitar (front left) works well in quad.
I very much enjoyed Edgar Meyer's double bass take on the Bach suites:
On the long drive back from Chicago to New Orleans, I played "A Tribute to Alvin Fielder: Live at the Vision Festival" several times. Alvin's long time comrades Kidd Jordan and Joel Futterman teamed up with Kidd's long time associates Hamid Drake and William Parker for scintillating and moving set to honor their friend. Although Kidd played a few more times after this show, it is in many ways his last will and testament. As he says at the end, "I done had my fun/If I don't get well no more." I was at the concert, and it was wonderful for me to relive the moment and to remember Kidd and Al.
Thanks for following up, Dan. Glad you had better luck with these than I did, as they really are some amazing recordings!
