Yeah thanks, not sure who he's bringing to play with him , hopefully Junius .
I saw him here in London a few years ago (with Junius) with Rosie Turton opening. One hell of a night, he never let up once, constant energy. So fun, you will have a blast!Yeah thanks, not sure who he's bringing to play with him , hopefully Junius .
I was tempted to get the ORG but I'd rather have a 33 than 45....so I ordered the new boomboom.I just picked up the ORG pressing from Plaidroom last week. Pressed at Pallas, BG in the run outs. Sounds incredible. Tip on gatefold jacket. I think it was worth the $47.
Whats the word on the Verve by Request pressings? Seen some bad reviews but are there any good ones?
Haven’t liked any I’ve gotten so far so I gave up on the series. Probably the worst big jazz reissue campaign as of late but we’re also spoiled by how much care has gone into stuff like the Tone Poets, OJC, etc. the few I’ve heard sounded dull and lifelessWhats the word on the Verve by Request pressings?

They are the best they can be considering the tapes no longer exist. RKS does a good job from digital. A true mint OG will be better in every case. For example, an OG Alice Coltrane - Ptah sounds better. The RKS clearly shows a relatively mid-res digital source. But still, it sounds quite good, entirely enjoyable and true to the music. Same with Shepp-Kwanza, and the Roy Brooks.Whats the word on the Verve by Request pressings? Seen some bad reviews but are there any good ones?
Alice Coltrane is perfectly fine. I’m happy to own it bc, for me, there’s a lot of room between OG/Audiophile options and bad. This fits comfortably in that space (for me(, and the relative scarcity of Alice Coltrane vinyl options make it worth owning on vinyl (for me). Then again, i could see many just deciding to stream it over a not-ideal reissue, and that makes sense to me also bc I make the same choice with many albums that I feel vinyl won’t make a difference to my experience.Whats the word on the Verve by Request pressings?

...not gonna be for everyone obviously but this is much better than I expected it would be - especially being all interpretations of the same song.
Fair enough. I very often like jazz that goes outside. But I did not find that to be the case here, it was too often just cacaphony.She thought the church part and the musical quoting was nifty. She hated the dissonance.
My wife’s thoughts on Requiem for Jazz - “this music makes me wish I was deaf.”
I said all these VMP JD “exclusives” would come out on black vinyl for half the price and VMP said it would never happen…now I think they have done 3 of em.Another ex VMP exclusive

Black Rhythm Revolution! Is the first solo album from the jazz-funk legend Idris Muhammad, a New Orleans-bred rhythm king who successfully made the leap from the finest soulful jazz records of the ’60s to the nastiest fusion funk of the ’70s.
Here we catch him literally on the cusp of the two in 1970, with one good foot in the get-down of “Express Yourself” and “Super Bad,” and the other in his own heady excursions into modal rhythm and melody, accompanied by virtuosos Kenny Barron, Ron Carter, Melvin Sparks, who came together for sessions overseen by legendary producer Rudy Van Gelder.
This 180-gram Jazz Dispensary reissue of Black Rhythm Revolution! was cut from the original analogue tapes by Kevin Gray and pressed at RTI, and comes packaged in a tip-on jacket.
