    Checked the liners and it's noted that CEDAR was used by Paul Brizzi. I have to say, it hasn't bothered me at all just yet. And I've gotten rid of my share of CEDAR'd jazz discs as they sounded like I was listening to the music from a heavily blanketed speaker in another room. This one's not like that yet, but I haven't gone through the whole thing.

    Side note, need to edit my comments on the music of What's New. Turned out to be pretty kitschy overall. Not my thing. I wouldn't buy this album on its own.

    Format: 6 × CD, Remastered, Compilation Box Set

    Listened to the first 2 discs in this box set. Terrible packaging for the discs inside, but I'm loving the rest of it even though it's a bit of a mash-up.

    Just played quiet kenny preceded by Freddie Hubbard "going up". These albums share a song but it goes by two different names. Lotus blossom= Adriatic Raes on the Hubbard album. Both are good records. Which do you like better?

    Dorham's version is my preference between these two. Hubbard's (Asiatic Raes btw)is good but there's a bit more going on in Dorham's: atmosphere, mood, and his tone.

    Edit: went on a bit of a Lotus Blossom listening spree via streaming this morning and heard another version Hubbard did with Woody Shaw, a version from Roy Hargrove & Antonio Hart and a Corea/Blade/McBride trio version among some others. Got to Sonny's Asiatic Raes from Newk's Time which was a bit more languid. Went even deeper with lots of live versions from all over the US. Going to keep listening but hard to best Dorham's original!

    DOWN HERE ON THE GROUND - WES MONTGOMERY (Verve Originals|CTi/A&M) CD


    Recorded 1967/68 and originally issued on A&M LP in 1968.

    Re-assessment time! It has taken a few months (and a number of plays) but the initial disappointments I had when I listened to this title for the first time have gone. I only wish now the album had a slightly longer running time.
