Pleased to hear you got a good copy. Mine was okay after a clean or two, which is good news as I've been after a decent pressing of this for ages...!Just finished a listen to side 1 of Idle Moments and it looks like I have dodged the no-fill bullet so far
Update: no issues on side 2 either. Phew
Hadn’t visited Joe Harley’s IG in awhile and have missed some of those titles him and BoomBoom have been working on. Hot damn…maybe these had all been announced and I wasn’t paying attention. Some interesting comments about other titles that they want to do.
Kenny Burrell self-titled
Gerald Wilson - moment of truth
Harold Vick - steppin out
Freddie Hubbard - breaking point
Jackie McLean - tippin the scales
Grant green - the Latin bit
Sonny Redd - Out of the blue
Lee Morgan - Taru and Infinity
Someone asked in the comments if Joe had considered Lee Morgan - Taru for TP treatment and he said “yes as well as infinity”I'd seen a few but not heard about the Lee Morgan's. Any reason why they are 'potential' is it a guess?
On the Deep Groove Mono blog that @JohnnyCashFan posted it had a bin of master tapes which looks to have 5 Lee Morgan tapes & 2 Duke Pearson, so I'm assuming 2 Lee Morgan Albums and a Duke Pearson. Might fit with Taru & Infinity
(I still need to get the latest Tone Poets, might have to wait a little while this time. I've not seen them reasonable priced anywhere for the UK)

With the Bennie Maupin quintet now widely exposed via the Lighthouse set, Taru makes sense. It is a very good album. Infinity is earlier, and less essential, but still very worthwhile.
I knew as soon as I picked up Taru a year or so ago it would be a selection in the series at some point. Happy to see that, the music is wonderful! “Haeschen” is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve ever heard.
Just saw that BN released a “small quantity of overrun” copies of Live at the Lighthouse. I’m not really sure what that means, but it’s available again.
