    There are 8 new releases in the Classic vinyl series upcoming in Nov and Dec. Available to pre order. See separate thread or Blue Note UK website. But maybe you are just interested in the Tone Poets ?

    So, apparently, hmv.com had some "Chet Baker Sings" available for purchase 20 hours ago... Why only at this store?

    This is one of my favorite TP releases. Check out the live Trio Music (1982) by the same group if you like this one.

    I'd guess a return in the warehouse as i had a similar experience a month or so ago on hmv.com .. i bought then they refunded after a few weeks saying they didn't know when delivery would be ...

    I might be imagining things, but I think this isn't the first time I'm hearing about this. Someone here or elsewhere said he entered an HMV store and saw a few Chet Baker Sings on the shelves just out of the blue (when they were already long gone ofc).

    I'm not much on fusion jazz anymore as I was in the 70s/80s before I sold off much of what I had then. I kept all my Weather Report (everything up to Heavy Weather) and ECM titles. However, over the weekend my wife and I listened to Herbie Hancock's Headhunters on Qobuz and had fun playing it. It such a classic, but is one I sold off decades ago (and I had a release day pressing). We decided to order the reissue from AP. They were out of the 33 so we went for the 45. It showed up today and I'm playing it now. Damn, it sounds really good. They did a nice job on it.

    I have been really enjoying George Duke "The Aura Will Prevail" lately. Can't get it out of rotation.....

    I'm not exactly getting back into fusion. Headhunters is seminal and historic for the genre, but for the most part I still much prefer acoustic jazz and classical above all else. For example, I don't see adding back all my Return To Forever albums, etc. as good as they were (although I've always hung on to and enjoyed the original ECM release).

    TBH: I'm at a loss to even remember a lot of what I had.

    The Coltrane and Charles were, and I remember chatting to Florence about this series and that they were all supposed to be AAA.
    However I’m pretty sure I missed the release when it came out so I couldn’t swear on it.

    That was me, two or three months ago. It was the HMV store here in Cardiff, Wales. It was over-priced, as all the Tone Poets and BN Classics seem to be with them, though I imagine it is selling for more on the used market at the moment. It was gone when I looked again a couple of weeks ago.

    One of the rare advantages of HMV overpricing records; they often have stock when everyone else had sold out. My local HMV had a copy of Chet Baker sings hanging around for ages at £45ish

    understood, some still hold up today but many do not. i cannot remember the last time i put on some RTF (except the first two), McGlaughlin, Cobham, Dimeola, Coryell etc. But some do carry forward, the George Duke is agreat example.

    So after Sonny Clark's "My Conception", which is still exquisite, I picked up the BN80 of Andrew Hill's "Smoke Stack" and I am blown away. I mean, I knew that many people here raves about him with "Passing Ships" in here, but still, wow! I absolutely adore his playing, and although "Smoke Stack" is a bit uneven, I can't shake the feeling that this is the work of someone who makes exactly the music he wants to make.

    So while I still have some others in my backlog (Coltrane's "Concert in Japan", Hubbard's "Open Sesame", more Clark and Ella's "Ella wishes you a swinging Christmas", which thankfully may only be played later this year), I am already wondering if I should go with "Passing Ships" next or any other album by Hill. I might have to sample a bit, although the large orchestration of "Passing Ships" might not be what I'm looking for, but we'll see.

    Anyone dig Medeski Martin and Wood?
    I would love Tone Poets of Combustication and particularly The Dropper.
    While these were recorded digitally (I may be wrong), I would really appreciate them being on wax in record stores again.
