    I'm in my 30s so those phone books stopped being around kinda early for me. But yeh, Yellow Pages for businesses and White Pages for individuals (had totally forgotten about the distinction). And what I meant was that I've never seen us, Portuguese, sorting names by surname first unless on the White Pages (not Yellow). The White Pages were obviously arranged by last name, I think it made sense. But that was the only thing that I remember that worked like that over here. For example, in forms, first name is always asked first. Lists of names are always "First name Surname" (ex.: John Smith and not Smith, John). We never organized names like that afaik unless on the phone books.

    Got Dexter Gordon’s One Flight Up from a local bricks and mortar yesterday, after seeing some of the Forum reviews.
    BTW, has anyone compared please the Charles Marvel Tone Poet TP vinyl with the CD ? I bought the CD earlier this year, and it’s one of my favourite new albums of 2021, but the vinyl is close to £50 over here, so I’ve not pulled the trigger yet. (I bought other TP Black Friday stuff like Katanga and Witch Doctor instead). Thanks.

    I haven't listened to Ornette in decades, and didn't really give him much of a chance at that point. I must admit its a shame its not coming out on CD as its a nice looking set and as such I would have picked it up. Not sure I will go to the effort of picking up the albums individually.

    I have well over 1000 Jazz albums mainly from the mid 50s to early 70s and have been buying and enjoying Jazz since the late 80s but have never got into Ornette Coleman. The box looks very cool but his music just isn’t for me.

    and another Immanuel Wilkins LP coming in January, he's on fire!
    i wish they'd give the TP treatment to more of these new artists.

    I went for the color variant on the Blue Note website. His Blue Note debut smoked, so looking forward to hearing this follow up.

    As a CD collector you really shouldn't be without Beauty is a Rare Thing, if Ornette catches your ear at this point and you don't already have it. I have the most recent repress and it's great. It goes on sale on Amazon from time to time.
    The originals don't go for much either.

    It's a great way to get his classic quartet (and octet) sessions in one fell swoop.

    I am hoping it goes down.
    I don't know exactly what is going on, but companies have been very comfortable charging way more than they should for records as of late and people are buying them up. Often times, I swear the higher the price is for the product the faster it sells. Everyone wants to equate price with quality, which has less correlation than a lot of people will admit.

    You Beatle fans are certainly over the top in love with your Fab Four! I mean that as a compliment.

    The vinyl versions of Ross, Wilkins, and other new Blue Notes are digital transfers, correct?

    Thanks! This is the only TP I’ve been waiting for. It’s been out of print for so long! My inability to find it motivated me to just start pre-ordering everything I was remotely interested in

    Sorry to go a bit off topic but since we’ve been discussing Ornette on Atlantic I’m interested to know if there are any AAA 33rpm cuts of This Is Our Music & The Change Of The Century?
    On the Ornette boxset thread an early comment alluded to some previous BG cuts of some albums on Rhino but didn’t elaborate.
    I already have The Shape Of Jazz To Come and feel the above two will do me and then go with the TP box when released.

    70s pressings of both albums are AAA, sound good, are easy to find and cheap.

    You missed out buddy. Used to be listings in the Yellow Pages like "Dial a hit."
    You would ring a free number and listen to the current "number one".

    Wow, I never heard about something like that. And, honestly, I doubt there was something like it in Portugal. But, man, thinking how those things will never exist again... even though I'm in my 30s, it's nostalgic.

    Somebody was mentioning Cannonball Adderley's 7 Riverside LPs that Adderley gave the masters to Capitol when he moved there. These would make excellent Tone Poet LPs.

    i don't think many studios are rolling tape in 2021.
    Immanuel Wilkins 'Omega' was recorded at Sear Sound in NYC, likely with contemporary digital technology.
    The LP credits Bernie Grundman for vinyl mastering.
