    JJ Johnson and Kai Winding in a funky setting. Benson is really good here.

    Starting the day - even though it's almost afternoon - with this recent MoFi SACD release (in case someone's wondering, no, I haven't compared it with my DCC):

    Sun Ra and his Intergalactic Research Arkestra – Paradiso Amsterdam 1970

    Nice sound. I was excited for this release. . . but. . .I think my tastes have shifted away from this sort of Ra "jazz." It's seeming more like rock or pop music to me these days. . . the appeal has waned over the years.

    There's also 6 minutes and 15 seconds by the CJQ on this set:
    https://www.discogs.com/release/272...Jazz-Festival-1972/image/SW1hZ2U6NDgwMTcwMA==

    As to whether the rest of their set that afternoon still exists, I haven't a clue. I was present to see it though.

    To be honest I didn't notice anything wrong but then again I'm not some Jazz expert. :D

    Although I don’t have this particular one I like the sound on these Columbia records.

    Really great later period Braxton too. Milford’s duets with David Murray, The Real Deal on DIW is a jewel in the limited Graves discography.

    Mark Murphy's last period had some masterpieces.

    Here are just a few, below.

    Did you ever get to meet Mark when he went to his hometown of Syracuse?

    Mark's devotion to his music kept him in poverty for his whole life.

    For his 80th birthday, he sent thank you letters to all of his friends for helping to keep him going.

    When I called him to say something about it, he said, "I meant it, man!"

    Unfortunately, no. I wasn't able to attend his last performance here before he became ill. I did attend the tribute to him at the 2016 Syracuse Jazz Festival.

    Once To Every Heart, with Till Bronner on trumpet, and Lucky To Be Me, are the two I enjoy the most.

    If Mark Murphy ever had a reliable income, his discography would have been even larger.

    He pumped nearly every penny he ever had into paying for his recording sessions.

    I think we discussed this before but as it stands, I'd like to see his Muse catalog updated with remastered sound and compiled into a box set. It probably won't happen but you never know.

    I'd expand that comment to "the Muse catalog."

    PSA for Nathan Davis fans. I’ve had If on my wantlist for about 10 years, very tough to find without spending a lot of $. Reissue coming out, I picked up the CD from Dusty Groove for $19 maybe they’ll get more in (that’s what temporarily out of stock means for DG) and LP arriving in a few months. Note the usual puffery in the summary but they aren’t far off this time! And I’m sure other outlets have as well, just highlighting IF others have been hunting for this funky gem

    P.S. If anyone missed out on the Sam records Nathan Davis with George Arvanitas trio ORTF, highly recommend that as well which seems to be now back in stock.

    I am really enjoying these Brubeck albums with orchestral settings.

    I have always found Sun Ra's music to be neither fish nor fowl. I keep buying his albums when I stumble across them trying to give him another chance, but it never clicks with me.

    Would LOVE CD issue of this and all of their A&M/CTi releases. Sadly, never gonna happen.
