  1. Purchased as part of a job lot recently on eBay ex-US, all duplicates in my current collection, NZ$12 each (but see below) plus postage (using re-cycled packaging at no cost) or personal pick-up from Takapuna, North Shore: 1. 8th Harmonic Breakdown 80004: El'Zabar/Bang/Bluiett Tri-Factor - "If You Believe..." (2002 Digipak, disc VG++ - some marks but plays perfectly, jacket NM, rare) 2. Delmark DE-533: El'Zabar/Billy Bang - "Spirits Entering" (2001, HPBC, disc VG++ - some marks but plays perfectly) 3. Delmark DG-541: El'Zabar Trio w/David Murray & Fred Hopkins - "Love Outside Of Dreams" (2002, HPBC, disc has swirls but plays perfectly) 4. Delmark DE-572: El'Zabar Ritual Trio feat. Billy Bang - "Big M A Tribute To Malachi Favors" (2006, HPBC, disc NM & plays perfectly) 5. Delmark DE-477: El'Zabar Ritual Trio w/ Billy Bang - "Big Cliff" (1995, disc VG++ - some marks but plays perfectly) 6.

Digital Media 830072302579 (Bar Code) - Ritual Trio (Lester Bowie/Malachi Favors/El'Zabar) - "Magg Zelma" (2008, appears to be a reissue of Sound Aspects CD "The Ritual", disc NM & plays perfectly) All US pressings except (possibly) 8 - which may even be a CDR, it's hard to tell. HPBC = Hole punch through bar code. All of these are obviously 'used', but equally obviously have been cared for. 10% discount (exc.postage) if you purchase 5 or more. Your money back (exc.postage) if not satisfied for any reason (inc. no reason) Never heard of Mr. El'Zabar? Veteran AACM percussionist who was voted Chicagoan Of The Year a few years back. Gimme $$ (payment by direct credit please) Jim
  2. St.Noah are you there? Yup, consider my left forelimb duly elevated. Will be hosting the bFM Jazz Show on Sunday (as Def Jim) - send me a text in the studio! (or phone 309 3879) Been a fan since the mid-70's & around 70% of my LP/CD collection is jazz. Not so much into the Big Band/Trad era however, much more ardent about the 60s/70s/80s & beyond (ie right now). I reserve a special predilection for guitarists eg Marc Ribot, Marc Ducret, Sonny Sharrock, David Gilmore (not the Pink Floyd dude), Joe Morris, Jef Lee Johnson etc.etc. My latest fave rave is the new Rudresh Mahanthappa CD 'Gamak' feat. David Fiuczynski on the frets - listen on Sunday for a first sample. I could prattle on indefinitely but am too time-poor. Jazz is where it's at - 'nuff said. Jim
  3. A few of my personal favourites, inevitably jazz-biased: Downtown Music Gallery New York-based, with the most comprehensive catalogue imaginable especially of new/avant/free/uncategorizable - you can sign up to receive a weekly newsletter regarding new releases and regular 2/h CD lists, deals etc. Klompfoot (AKA Cadence Jazz) Located in upstate NY, almost as comprehensive as DMG Allegro Distribution house with lots of cool labels on their roster (some tiny, some larger), regular 'on-sale labels' offers etc. Dusty Groove Jazz, blues, soul, you name it... Characterised by their relentlessly upbeat potted "reviews" full of exclamation marks!!!! Cheap Thrills Montreal-based, I have ordered from them though not recently Forced Exposure Good for specific labels (eg Tzadik) - again I've not ordered from them for some time Enough already Jim

  5. Like many I was an avid fan of Barney & Co back in the 80s but thought that from Republic onwards they gradually became a sad parody of themselves - and at this point I haven't heard any new stuff from them for years. But I've never seen them live and if they'll be playing even passable versions of some of the old classics.... ie decisions, decisions. Thoughts, people? Jim
  6. Brian Ono;156961 wrote: It may mean that David Murray (87) may be bordering on obsessive:D Guilty as charged I should think. In my book Murray was Boss Tenor throughout the 80's and 90's and then some, with a suitably 'prodigious' output. Seems to have run out of steam a bit recently however, and gotten involved with projects somewhat tangential to jazz, some of which I'm not that enamoured of. Suffice it to say I don't acquire his stuff at anything like the rate I once did. Just means other obsessions have taken his place of course.
  7. Having just come through a big push to finish the data entry required for my collection to be complete in CATraxx (it's taken months all told) I now have everything at my fingertips (well, on a stick anyway) so am well-placed for this exercise. I've taken the liberty of generating 2 lists, one for jazz and another for everything else. Number of items in brackets in each case, box-sets count for 1, CD/LP duplicates (etc.) count 1 each, title quoted is just a personal favourite.

Anybody who's prepared to be truly completist about the Dead needs scads of discretionary $$ and weeks of each year with nothing better to do than listen to them. I fail miserably to qualify on both counts - not to say I wouldn't be there if I could however.
  9. I guess I just thank oblivion that I'm in no way, shape or form a Floyd fan, don't own any, never intend to and have never knowingly sat down and listened to "DSOTM" as I believe it's termed. On the other hand I do have a weakness for Grateful Dead so my parallel universe is subject to the same strictures really. Man that Winter Ale is delicious.
  10. Just listening to it for the first time here. Sounds great thus far to these ears - which is good news as to me the last one was a bit of a dud following on from a string of pearls.
  11. I just spotted some web notices for this (dating back as far as July) and immediately got all gleed-up. My favourite of his thus far is Civilians, which is consistently brilliant IMHO and also happens to feature my favourite-of-all JH track Parker's Mood - just one of the most exquisite songs I've ever heard. The last one - Blood From Stars - is also excellent. Yummy - can't wait! Jim
