@jazznut had posted this and I thought it worth repeating, mine is on order:
I was enjoy listening to good improv with the playing transcribed, replete with the changes. Great fun.
Sold out. Though at $99 for a single LP I think it’s more than I’d consider paying.
Interesting as they accepted my order, I’d better swing back and ensure it is available. I agree $99 is rather steep for Lush Life or any other LP. Just confirmed, so I’m thinking I got one of the last of 1,000. Thanks again for the recommendation.
I read that Rudy Van Gelder cited the session that “Lush Life” was recorded as his favorite recording session.
I just hope that they don’t deliver multiple orders to those who want to make some money with rare releases.
Wow, I did just slip under the wire. Thank-you!
I agree, one per customer would be fair. Did you get a copy?
A fantastic hard bop set, Soul Station. one of if not the best from tenor sax player Hank Mobley. This version a re-issue on Music Matters vinyl.
Hank Mobley tenor saxophone
Wynton Kelly piano
Art Blakey drums
A core entry in any jazz collection.
Yes, got one…1000 for the world in vinyl hip times is not a lot … was easier the decades before Those AAA releases since the beginning of Acoustic Sounds and others are like a master tape collection compared to the digital releases. I just sit in front of o a Stan Getz one…before that I compared a Classic Records Zoot Sims to its DAD sibling, just made perfectly from the same tape by the same Bernie Grundman/Classic Records mastering to 24/96 …no chance…don’t know where so much gets lost. But he told so in Paul’s interview with him.
Assuming you are a BN fan, the Kevin Gray masters on Tone Poet and Music Matters are pretty strong. There are only a handful of Tone Poets I do not have, passed up on Cassandra Wilson, and Elvin Jones. A few clinkers in there and a handful of bad pressings, warps, off center and noisy surfaces. For the most part the Tone Poets are winners, 3 Tone Poets are about the price of one Music Matters here in the “states”,
Yeah, the Tone Poets are great. I have all of the various audiophile releases or partly originals I wanted/needed since the 70‘s/80‘s, where of interest also doubles or kept the best. The records are the real treasure, the equipment is just there to play them
Music is always first in this house, the equipment is merely a means to an end.
