    I've heard a couple of Elemental Music Blue Note reissues and they sound quite good. But as I mentioned in my post earlier, I already have the CD and double dipping would only be an option if I find an original or if it gets reissued by Blue Note for the Tone Poet series (I had high hopes they'd do it in the first run, but they did two Turrentines instead :cry:).

    Anthony Williams: Spring

    Anthony Williams: Drums
    Wayne Shorter: Tenor Sax
    Sam Rivers: Tenor saxophone, flute
    Herbie Hancock: Piano
    Gary Peacock: Bass

    Call me crazy but I've often seen (and heard) this as the album that the "Second Great Quintet" never made. Check the lineup and consider the time context of this masterwork in just a 12 month period:

    7/14/64: Miles In Tokyo w/Rivers, Hancock and Carter
    8/21&24/64: Life Time w/Rivers, Hancock and Carter
    9/25/64: Miles In Berlin w/Shorter, Hancock and Carter
    1/20-22/65: E.S.P. w/Shorter, Hancock and Carter
    8/12/65: Spring w/Rivers and Shorter, Hancock

    Yes, there are additional intresting pieces to this multifaceted puzzle but......enough for now, on to....Echo))))))))))

    Dear Mr. Harley,

    Please TP this!

    Bright Moments,
    Ax

    Yeah, so many hopefuls for the series (see above) and while I'll never complain (yet) I was a little disappointed in the first year offerings, including doubling up on Mr. T. And some of the artists are not exactly underre[resented in the audiophile reissue world. However, I am extremely excited by a few of the picks, namely:
    Sam Rivers: Contours
    Andrew Hill: Black Fire!
    If we can lean that direction a little more I'd be far more pleased and surprised.

    How does that 2002 sound? The 2009 cd has a but too much compression.

    With Jerry Dodgion (af) Peter Phillips (bt) Thad Jones (flg) Ron Carter (b) Mickey Roker (d). From 1968, when Herbie was transitioning from the 2d classic Miles quintet and his solo career that would become increasingly funky and electronic. This is closer to Miles than Headhunters with its horn-centric sound, but you can still hear the experimental side that would characterize his later work.

    Sidney Bechet Blue Note Jazzmen (Jazz Selection/Vogue) CD

    Tracks 1-6 / Sidney Bechet Blue Note Jazzmen (Vol.3) - Sidney Bechet & His Blue Note Jazzmen (Blue Note) 10" 1953

    Tracks 7-12 / Sidney Bechet Blue Note Jazzmen (Vol.4) - Sidney Bechet & His Hot Six LP (Blue Note) 10" 1951

    Tracks 13-14 / Bechet-Spanier Big Four Singles (Hot Record Society) 1940 - also re-issued on a Jazz Selection single.

    It was great these sessions were included in the box set, and in such good sound. Excluding the two Hot Record Society tracks all the Blue Note sides were issued (in a different running order) on the Blue Note CD

    The last track is credited as previously unissued, however, I confirmed that it is identical to the track on his Artist House disc that has never been on CD officially.
