Today just found two very interesting Pablo LPs, and will give them a cleaning and spin (and conversion to FLAC) next month when I have time:

- Sarah Vaughan "I Love Brazil!"
- Oscar Peterson & Dizzy Gillsepie

That's a good one - two showoffs equally matched. But I like the Oscar and Harry Edison album even more.

Edison and Eldridge! (Not sure though I've heard th Gillespie ... and definitely haven't - and don't intend to - the Faddis, fourth in that mini series).

Speaking OP an Pablo and duets/meetings, those with Count Basie are wonderful - and I guess OP w/Ella ain't half bad (a change of pace from all the lovely Ella/Pass ones).

The Faddis one is bad. I respect his playing, but he has such a shrill, harsh sound - goes for loudness rather than expression - that it's physically difficult for my ears to listen.

Reading similar reviews and having similar feelings towards him I steered clear of it!

Isn't there actually one with Clark Terry? They collaborated earlier and later, guess that could be nice in just a duo setting, too.

There is a Clark Terry one! I need to buy it! Thanks for the reminder.

Just found another interesting LP at my local crackhouse book/record store. I have very little Brubeck in my collection, but I really love this cover. A lucky find--stereo and in absolutely mint condition.

That Bill Frisell recording is very good, imo.  I haven't heard the Charles Lloyd one you bought, which is odd since I usually listen to everything of his I see (will look for it).  Lloyd's work is always worthwhile and he's released some really fantastic records over the years.  The stuff since he came out of self-induced retirement has been uniformly excellent.

Definitely looking forward to hearing both recordings, David. Love Frisell’s and Lloyd’s work. It’s great seeing two of my musical heroes play together.

Following the five-star review on the Free Jazz Blog:



I have only a couple of Breuker's albums - and have yet to hear either of them (a constant refrain from me, it seems). So I've splurged for this retrospective. A bit pricey (a little over $100 with shipping from the Low Countries), so I hope I like it. :)

Just bought Julie London All Through The Night (Cole Porter song book) LP off Ebay, albeit the Stereo version. My first ever purchase through Ebay! I could have bought the CD, or the new vinyl release, but this was just too cool to pass up on original vinyl!

Thanks, I'm going to pick up Around Midnight soon too. I heard a piece or two from that one (as well as All Through The Night) on KCSM and have had them on my Amazon list for a while--but so much more fun to get them on vinyl.

Won an eBay auction for this Albert Ayler box set from Revenant



Holy Ghost is the first comprehensive attempt to build a monument in sound to Albert Ayler. The settings — radio and TV sessions, studio demos, private recordings, live concert footage — find his music at its most liberated. And with the sponsorship and assistance of Ayler’s family, friends, and colleagues, Holy Ghost documents his never-before-heard first and last recordings, bookending rare and unissued music from every stage of his career.

Albert Ayler: heard ABOUT more than heard. But that’s all about to change.

9 CDs of rare & unissued recordings
208 pg. full-color hardbound book
new essays by Amiri Baraka, Val Wilmer & other Ayler scholars
unpublished photos & family memorabilia
artist testimonials of first encounters with Ayler’s music
exhaustive chronology of Ayler performance activities
housed in lavish Spirit Box cast from handcarved original

Nominated for two 2005 Grammy Awards.

I figured it was time I upgraded my OJC issue of Monk’s classic: Brilliant Corners to the 24-bit Keepnews Collection issue:
