    I agree, the Nathan Davis w/Georges Arvanitas Trio reissued by Sam Records is excellent. Big fan of Sam Records. With Sam Records, Music Matters, and now Tone Poet series, this is a great time for jazz fans.

    Congratulations to Wayne Shorter for just winning a Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Album for his masterpiece 3-LP set Emanon! I'll post a photo if someone can remind me how to do that!

    You probably need to first upload it to a hosting service like Imgur, copy it's direct link and paste it on the field that shows up when you click the button next to the emojis on top of the editor.

    Is the Nathan Davis available anywhere other than acoustic sounds. Looks like it is back ordered and not sure if they will be getting anymore. Any leads would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I’m pretty confident that Acoustic Sounds will procure some of the repressing so this is one of those marked “back ordered” where you will likely end up receiving the album. I, too, recommend this album highly. Don’t sleep on the rest of Nathan Davis’ catalogue either as it is incredibly consistent and rewarding.

    Good news. But how many fans have heard it? Very overpriced.

    It's streaming now.

    Why? I listened in hi-res on Qobuz.

    I quite like the orchestrated sections, though I prefer the live dates with the quartet, simply because it's stunning to hear these four masters communicate musically with each other. I'd put Wayne's quartet on the same level as Miles' Second Great Quintet; they're seriously that good, and the more live recordings of them available, the better.

    Now streaming Dexter Gordon's Clubhouse. What a killer title! I'd never heard it before and am thrilled it's coming as part of this series. The Harris/Cranshaw/Higgins section never disappoints, and Hubbard and Gordon are great as ever.

    My Etc came from Amazon with no bag/shrink. No issues at all, so I’m not going to make a fuss about it. I wonder if there was an issue with these where they needed to open them back up — maybe the wrong record made it into some jackets?

    I'm just kidding. But seriously, "Emanon" is way overpriced on CD/Vinyl, and I think many of us would prefer a physical release at a reasonable price over streaming.

    Agree. I thought about getting it last month until I saw how much it is.

    I'm guessing it'll come down eventually. Or maybe the Grammy win will encourage UMe to put it out in a less ornate package.

    Several of the upcoming titles I am planning on going in blind, knowing the music was chosen by @Joe Harley to be released for a reason. So pumped for this title especially!

    Apparently enough for it to win a Grammy....

    Right? That this was not released at the time is a total mystery to a whole lot of folks. But it was like that at the time for Blue Note. So much going on and only a very few people besides Frank and Alfred working for the company at the time. From what I understand, there were times when they simply became overwhelmed and projects they had recorded fell by the wayside.

    I'm really looking forward to the Cassandra Wilson Glamoured release. I had been hoping for a vinyl reissue. Great to see that analog tapes were discovered. I assume that means 'masters'.

    I was seeing Patricia Barber at the Regatta Bar in Cambridge when, at the same time, Wilson was performing across the hall in a ballroom, supporting this album.

    That's exactly what it means. Surprised me too. We had to assemble them into the running order for the album since that had never happened before.
