  1. I'm passing messages through a third party, and at this stage still waiting for a reply. The people concerned are a couple with 3 young children who have recently lost their family cat. As soon as I know anything I'll get back to you.
  2. I really like this guy's piano playing. I have a few albums by him which are quite avant-garde and free jazz, what's this one like?
  3. I may know someone, will get back tomorrow
  4. @eman not exactly what you had before, but certainly enough to get you started again.
  5. Cal Tjader - Tjader Some great jazzy lounge with a strong latin influence. Heavy on bossa rhythms and percussion balanced out nicely with Cal on vibes and organ, and Al Zulaica on piano and Fender-Rhodes.
  6. I definitely agree with one record at a time, these machines are just not powerfull enough for more. Maybe try turning the US off but keep the record spinning in the fluid at 35 degrees for a longer period, even overnight. After this give it a 10 minute US. I've done this before to great success. Some crud is so baked in it needs the soak.
  7. R.I.P. Bill. Thanks for the iconic somgs.
  8. Another of the old school musicians leaves us, Ray Mantilla, best known for his work with Ray Barretto and Herbie Mann. https://www.wbgo.org/post/ray-mantilla-percussionist-who-blazed-trail-both-jazz-and-latin-music-dead-85?utm_source=Jazz+E+News&utm_campaign=d491c84ec7-Jazz_E_News_May_30_2018_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_515c090776-d491c84ec7-109373453&mc_cid=d491c84ec7&mc_eid=37f8463761#stream/0
  9. Some more on Wallace for those who don't know him. https://www.wbgo.org/post/wallace-roney-intrepid-jazz-trumpeter-dies-covid-19-complications-59?utm_source=Jazz+E+News&utm_campaign=d491c84ec7-Jazz_E_News_May_30_2018_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_515c090776-d491c84ec7-109373453&mc_cid=d491c84ec7&mc_eid=37f8463761#stream/0 And another, Mike Longo, long time pianist for Dizzy. https://www.wbgo.org/post/mike-longo-prominent-jazz-pianist-known-his-tenure-dizzy-gillespie-dies-83?utm_source=Jazz+E+News&utm_campaign=d491c84ec7-Jazz_E_News_May_30_2018_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_515c090776-d491c84ec7-109373453&mc_cid=d491c84ec7&mc_eid=37f8463761#stream/0
  10. Shorty Rodgers - Short Stop. Some of Shorty's big band work. We don't see a lot of Shorty on these forums, but nonetheless he certainly had the respect of his contemporaries, just check the associated personnel in this production. The music is to a great degree swing.
  11. Since we have a few covers happening here, how about one of In A Gada Da Vida, Tuvan throat singing style.
  12. Verve Jazz No. 16 Roy Eldridge with Art Tatum, Buddy Tate, Oscar Peterson, Barney Kessel, Ray Brown and others. While originally released as a cheapie compilation by Metro Records, there is nothing short on quality in this. A nice German pressing with good SQ, and a medium weight laminated slip cover. Musically, it is what you would expect from the calibre of musicians within. What is unexpected is some great organ work from Oscar.
  13. @DarkTree Time and time again I'm impressed with the output on the enja lable. They cross many borders with nujazz, world, avant-garde and more. You never knew what was around the next corner, the next release.
