Coronavirus supplies from ArkivJazz.com - mixed experience with them, I had a 15% off coupon which is nice, but the store selection seems quite limited and they didn't send a confirmation email for my order so I'm doing this from memory.



...and I think a couple others that I forgot.

Brian

They never sent a shipping confirmation email, but almost all the stuff in my post above arrived today. Three days is pretty good, especially considering our current circumstance and the total lack of communication from the company.

I forgot that I'd also ordered "Rockin' the Boat" (Jimmy Smith with Lou Donaldson). Wynton Marsalis' "Think of One" did NOT arrive in my box so presumably another is coming.

Brian

Just remembered the other CD I'd ordered from ArkivJazz: "Out Here," Christian McBride Trio. Even though the first box arrived super quickly, if they don't at least tell me when the other two CDs will ship, I probably won't order from them again. Their selection is also quite limited, although they do have about a dozen 80s rarities I want.

I also suspect that the Stitt Plays Bird disc is a burned CD-R so not sure what's up with that.

Did they charge your card for what they shipped? Does Informed Delivery show anything?

This may be like the mess they had last on the classical side of the operation. Shipped me CDs, but did not charge my card until well afterward, and the shipping confirmation email doesn't go until the credit card gets charged. [But they always sent me the order confirmations right away. It was only the shipping email that did not get sent.]

The undisclosed CD-R thing has been happening increasingly often in jazz CD land. I haven't been nailed yet.
Many buyers demand their money back. Given what you've said about the seller, it's unclear how (if?) they'd respond.

Brian

Looks like they billed me for the full total, but now Think of One shows as backordered and Out Here as low stock. Maybe when I bought Think of One, they'd run out but didn't know it. Or, uh, something.

I actually often don't mind the CD-R thing because jazz, unlike classical music, has a scant reissue/remastering history. There are hundreds of great albums that were on CD in 1985 or whatever, and never printed again. I wish that some of the big labels would do mega box sets like in classical - Sony has done some but imagine, say, a complete Swingville box set - anyways, until that happens, I'll buy whatever copy exists. Or listen on YouTube.

Theoretically, your copy of Think of One might have been the last one.

Could be! They should put a "Last one!" sticker on it when they mail it...if they mail it.

Love LMF!  After seeing your post I went to the site and saw this one:

Modern Brass Bands 1990-2005 (3-CD Set)



It 's on Spotify, so I'm listening to it and enjoying it a lot.  All of the bands are on Spotify so I can also listen to the entire recordings from which the tracks were taken to create the 3CD set.

Thanks for the reminder of this great resource.

McBride's "Out Here" arrived today. Looks fun.

Started playing some of the stuff from my LMF package (Wendell Brunious' "In the Tradition") and scouting out another order. Let me know if you see anything irresistible there, San Antone.

I'd recommend this if it wasn't only available as a vinyl Lp: Jon Batiste – Chronology Of A Dream / Live At The Village Vanguard  But maybe it's available as a CD as well. I listened on Spotify and it's really good.

Also this one, Leyla McCalla – Capitalist Blues

This looks especially good, Tom McDermott is usually reliable: Tom McDermott & Aurora Nealand – Live at Luthjen's

Some more:
Evan Christopher & Fapy Lafertin – A Summit in Paris
Kenneth Hagans – Plays Traditional New Orleans Music

This looks to be an excellent compilation of early New Orleans Jazz: This is New Orleans Jazz (3-CD Set)

Nicolas Payton is also a very reliable artist:  Nicholas Payton – Relaxin' With Nick (2-CD Set)  The production is really nice, a real natural acoustic - of course, some great blowing by this group.  It's not all jazz, and includes some funk.  Dunno if that nixes it for you.

I've been touting this recently, just fantastic: Wynton Marsalis – Bolden: Music from the Original Soundtrack

Well, I could probably find many more, that site is the bomb.

Thank you San Antone! Hopefully I can resist for at least a few more days before posting some of those in my next purchase!

A couple third-party sellers off Amazon Marketplace...

Since I posted those recs, I've had a chance to listen more closely to the Leyla McCalla – Capitalist Blues, and was disappointed - see more comments in the jazz listening thread.

Had to go to "the big city" a little over an hour away on business. Took the opportunity to visit my favorite brick/mortar store, well, actually the only CD/used CD/vinyl/book shop I know of within a reasonable distance. They had a lot of good mdse, but I only had a few minutes. Picked up 3 somewhat oddball but interesting used discs:

The two I've bolded are the ones I've listened to the most, although Bags & Trane is riddled with distortion because of flawed engineering.  Gerry Mulligan made several of these "Meets" records, my favorite is with Ben Webster and he also did an excellent one "Meets Monk." 

You invested in some really good stuff.

Skronk is part of Jazz  first  experimentation afro american than later on Japanese that would mold heavy jazz skronk and metallic not metal sound
