Can't go wrong with it, methinks!

There's no rule that says you can't give a gift to yourself.

The Complete 1975 Toronto Recordings
Paul Desmond was an artist who stood alone on the alto saxophone. His tone was light, but full. His improvisations were complex but always lyrical and direct. If Johnny Hodges was the seducer on alto, Desmond was the cool intellect always willing to engage all of your senses.

Limited Edition: 2,500 copies
7 CDs


--- Quote from: T. D. on April 24, 2020, 05:42:42 PM ---Dark Tree (  in France has some Horace Tapscott projects upcoming. I already purchased  WHY DON’T YOU LISTEN? – Live at LACMA, 1998 from them.
The info below is copied from an e-mail I received; the Ancestral Echoes doesn't seem to show on their website yet. BTW, Isoardi's previous book The Dark Tree (now oop, it included a fine CD) is outstanding.

Dear Friends,

A PAPA/UGMAA Oral History
of Growing Up In Postwar
South Central Los Angeles

and The Union of God’s Musicians and Artists Ascension

In the post World War II era, dozens of young African Americans in South Central Los Angeles found their way to careers in music. In a community facing challenging social conditions and with little to no outside support, they would become artists, supported by the best that their community and culture had to offer, from neighborhood and family to schools and churches, private teachers, formal and informal spaces and institutions, and more than a few unsung heroes.

“The neighborhood was tough, but it’s not like it is today.... I mean I knew that we were not rich people, but I never, ever felt poor.” — pianist Bobby West

“I was sitting up there tripping off of James Brown, and my cousin came in very angry. ‘You need to stop all that bullshit and get turned on to jazz music, because it’s a way of life.’ That freaked me out, man, and I was freaked for the rest of my life.” — trumpeter Jon Williams

“Our music is contributive, rather than competitive.” — pianist Horace Tapscott
100 pages (in English)
Front cover illustration and design by Paul Rogers

The vinyl is ready but still waiting at the pressing plant: we can't stock it in our place, so we have to wait the end of the French lockdown (probably May 11) for a delivery to another address. However, Pallas (the pressing plant), was kind enough to send us 3 copies: it's gorgeous!!
It's already listed on Discogs where you'll find more photos and specifics.

Le vinyle est prêt mais toujours à l'usine de pressage: n'ayant pas la possibilité de l'entreposer, nous devons attendre la fin du confinement afin de le faire livrer à une autre adresse. Cependant, Pallas, a eu l'amabilité de nous en faire parvenir 3 copies : le résultat est merveilleux !
Le disque est déjà renseigné sur Discogs où vous trouverez plus de photos et de détails.
