Whoops! Is it? My mistake!
The list is already amazing.
Feelin the Spirit
These are all A+ titles imo. Honestly I prefer this music over the vast majority of the big titles with a few exceptions. In a lot of ways I think the Tone Poet series is better than MMJ because the titles are so unique and every bit as good.
I think the cd set is the best option for those not willing to fork out the dough ( specially us Canuks who get hammered with our lousy exchange rate on the dollar and shipping costs)
(If amazon.ca distributes it I may break my dont buy Bezos rule and get the LP set maybe ...because it will be nuts money to buy from US sites. )
cd or Lp this is essential music IMHO
Mothership would be on the top of my list as well. Good call.
Ok @scotti enough is enough... spill the beans!
NO FREAKING WAY!!!
Ah man. Dude. I was super excited for a minute. Even knowing TP won’t redo an MMJ. But damn.
Do it @scotti and be a legend!!!
Come to think of it, @scotti hasn't been on here raving about any of his recent TP acquisitions yet today.. that may be a first since I joined. IT'S HAPPENING PEOPLE
Maybe it's both! Fingers crossed. Only one I saw was All Seeing Eye.
Did someone say Happenings...
i think we already know about the next 4 months worth of releases, keep some good news for later!
Oh look, we are about to hit 600 pages now...thought I would politely avoid the above post. I noticed above about "The All Seeing Eye", but that is not 2021, pretty sure 2022. The Soothsayer is not going to be a Tone Poet.
And lose a good friend, I don't think so. My oldest son is a Jazz lover, and he could not even get it out of me. Don't read me wrong, I realize we are having fun here and I respect that you all know it has to go through the proper channels now. I was within an hour of posting it when Joe had to put the breaks on it because of some last minute date changes. They do not want to release a schedule and then have to go back and modify dates because of any issues that come up. Believe me, it will be well worth the wait.
So from the Craft One Step thread to this, can't imagine what folks are going through waiting to drop over $100 for "Lush Life" and how many more Tone Poets they will purchase once they see the 2021 list. Not to mention everything else that will be coming out.
I can't remember now what was already announced, but that sounds about right from what I'm looking at.
On a side note - if anyone missed out of the Impex 45 of Friday Night In San Francisco, Elusive Disc is taking preorders now even though it says discontinued. About a 6 week wait for my order that I placed this morning with them. It will most likely not say available again as the stampers sell out during the preorder phase I was told. @Crazysteve told me I need this one, so it's on him if I do not like it...ha!
Just fun and games my man, no offence intended!
I've actually got a three blind mice original pressing and Kenny Drew - Undercurrent arrived today! That should keep me occupied!
Oh yes I know that. Many of us know each other here since we are on similar threads. All I can say is I love hanging out with all of you and talking about all of these cool records, not just the Tone Poets, but everything Jazz that is done right. Being retired gives me much free time, plus I'm under strict doctors orders to just relax and enjoy my music and some games of pool.
Ha! Feet up, whisky out and shush about the craft as there is only 1000!
Ha indeed! Unfortunately, maybe not, I'm only allowed to have some beers, but I have not one complaint. Getting kind of thirsty now and I'm ready to go fire up my MMJ 45 of Kenny Burrell's "Freedom". Just can't get enough of his great music now, can we...
You bum! What original TBM did you get? I can't quit listening to "Greensleeves" does that ever sound amazing! And "Undercurrent" love me some Kenny Drew!
edit - even though just some cold ones, I have @Mazzy's awesome pictures with his beverage of choice near by to look at, which does help a bit.
I say original but it’s a first repress! It’s “Ryuhyo” or Sailing Ice in English by the Motohiko Hino Quartet + 1
Motohiko is probably the best drummer to come out of the jazz scene in Japan, absolutely incredible! The version of Soul Trane is mind blowing horn blowing as well! The last track New Moon starts off with a lot of bowing of the bass onto bass work, it really is fantastic!
I’d highly recommend anyone who hasn’t heard any of this amazing Japanese label to invest in some!
Also, if someone could tell me how to put images on here properly that might help!
To be fair, you could just tell us the titles so if the dates change, no harm no foul.
That's what I thought at first. But Joe is not the one to publish the list, it comes from BN. And because of what's going on, the powers that be might not like it if I announced the complete list before they do. It was going to be okay because I had all of the original dates, but since modifications are being made, I hope folks understand that it now has to go through the proper channels.
That’s understandable (pm me )
Any idea when they will be releasing? They must have come across some more issues if they haven’t met their intended date!
No more issues and I was asked to not say anymore other than what I already have. It's all good and I know it will be anytime now. I really should not say much else until it's published now, but if Joe tells me before it does get announced, I will post that here, I promise.
Hey, some good news is that Joe is with Kevin today and tomorrow mastering 4 more titles. So that's pretty cool!
So many great TBM records to consider, though the prices are so skyhigh that “considering” is about as far as I get with most of them. But I did manage to acquire this one after a long search and it’s a stomper: Sunao Wada Quintet +1* Featuring Minoru Ikeno - Four Scenes
Agree that Motohiko Hino is one of the best drummer to come out of the Japanese jazz scene but he’s got quite a few at or nearly at his level, including Koji Yamada who’s on this one.
I understand what you’re saying! A lot of them just demand too much cash on Discogs! You can find some cheap though! I’ll listen to Koji! Otsuka is also fantastic!
The only problem is finding enough time to enjoy all these wonderful releases. Last year I purchased way over 50 jazz albums, and they all deserve a lot more playing time than a spin or two.
Now spinning The Cooker
