    It's not, but never mind. This happens quite often, and I'm not the only one who sometimes can't see the images.

Blue Mitchell (tp) + Junior Cook (ts) + Chick Corea (p) + Gene Taylor (b) + Al Foster (dr) .... beautiful toned Blue Mitchell and his near perfect foil aha hard hitting Junior Cook dominate the session inside out .... btw great drumming by Al Foster ....

    Mellow Sunday vibes with Walt and Richard in mesmerizing duets both recrded February 9, 1977 at the same session. Beautifully transparent sound with lots of ambient air in which the instruments exist and two kindred spirits in communion.

    Something odd to note though. The SPARS code for these two recordings (from the same session in 1977) show the first as an analog recording while the second shows a digital recording. I find it hard to believe that part of the session was recorded to analog tape and the other to digital tape, especially considering that the first digital recording in the US (non-Classical) did not take place until Nov 28, 1977. Ironically an Archie Shepp date. So my vote goes to these both being analog recordings/sources.

    Damn, I need to hnt a copy of this. I expected this to fetch largeish money but checking Discogs this OP verson ranged from a low of $1 :confused: to a high of $50. Completely reasonable. Cheaper than what you can get the "Complete" CD set for these days.

    With all the Jackie reissues of late this has sadly been neglected. There is a 2016 Lp by Elemental that is legit (Zev from Resonance) with all rights paid, although I'm sure it's a digital cut. May be better than the Conn and worth checking out?

    Couldn't read this well so searched the image and come to find out Chad Taylor is on drums. That's a deal maker for me always.

    I have yet to receive mine for some unforgetful reason. However, if the CD layer sounds even as good as the Booteg Volume 5 I can't wait to hear the SACD layer. That Boot volume engrossed me for days and I've returned to it as frequeltly as or more than the others, which I never expected to be the case. More of that sort of thing please.

    I don't think you'll be disappointed in this edition.

    I don't know if it's "mellowness of age" but glad you are beginning to appreciate this one. I always liked this one but I've grown to love it. I really dig the contrasts between the drumming of Woodyard and Jones and how they influence the performances, and I really have grown to appreciate fully the energy that Ellington and Coltrane bring to playing together.

    Your right. Next time I'll be better about writing out the artist/title. Glad you looked into it. He shines on this.

    Don Cherry: Live At Cafe Montmartre 1966 Volume 2

    Don Cherry: Trumpet
    Gato Barbieri: Tenor Sax
    Karl Berger: Vibraphone
    Bo Stief: Bass
    Aldo Romano: Drums

    Recorded March 31, 1966 at the Jazzhus Montnartre in Copenhagen (Denmarks Village Vanguard) and volume 2 of a 3 volume release by ESP Disk which was never issued on vinyl and only one other time by a bootleg label. These ESP's are the ones to get and generally sound very good, an honest representation of the sound and room as the gig went down. Only oddity of this particular volume is that Cherry's wonderful "Elephantasy" is incomplete, presumably due to a reel change or a lost reel and when the music returns, with the closin 23' "Complete Communion" the sounds changes dramatically, eliciting what sonds to be a phase or polarity issue, possibly with the deck or mixer/mics. Not to worry though, you adjust and it's worth hearing these tunes (sort of the "Complete Communion" tour, the Blue Note album that had just been recorded 3 months earlier) in a live small club setting.

    Cherry announces each tune, the crowd is both engaged and disrespectful at times, and the band just cooks. Funny to say but the most adventurous player here is the still-fire breathing Barbieri, who recorded as a leader for ESP as well. Always a joy to hear Berger's Vibes as well and they are represented prominently here. A great document of mid-60's Anant-Bop. Collect all three volumes!

    Excellent, haven't benn so far. Also have Porgy coming, another favorite. I truly hope that MoFi continues this program until the entire catalog is covered.

    Ah that's cool, it was a hard design/font for me to figure out, glad it looked it up as I was unfamiliar with the pianist.

    Ty, I paid €20. Original copies on Verve don't fetch that much, regardless of condition.
