Dexter Gordon - Go
Lucked out and found this one today...
The Great Kai Winding and J.J. Johnson
I wish! Unfortunately, it'll be a little while before I get to the Revox—I'm (very) slowly working through my vintage system and getting everything updated/restored. Man, this audio/vinyl obsession is expensive
I had an interesting and enlightening conversation with Fred Cohen at the Jazz Record Center on Friday. He quizzed me on whether I was familiar with Contemporary Records recording engineer Roy DuNann (I wasn't), and then asked whether I knew of other recording engineers such as Tom Dowd at Atlantic (I did). He said it was really a shame that Roy wasn't more well-known, because he felt that the sound quality of Contemporary Records were of an even higher quality (for the period) than Blue Note recordings.
This one is a 70s repress, but the sound is definitely crisp and balanced—almost modern in its presentation. And I really like Hampton Hawes here—

Roy was the sound engineer on the fore-mentioned Coleman "Something Else" album. A very unique sound, rather pure and clear, which I like...you can tell he was particular about his microphones, their placement, and the capturing directly to tape. You have to be careful with re-issue LPs (and especially CDs) as this crispness is sometimes lost. Seek out the original releases (or tapes!) for sure!
I love this one. A lot of great originals on it. I have this exact copy.
I had another one though, that I unfortunately gave away. I'd like to have that one back, with the little checks written in next to certain tunes by my friend Tommy C., when I lent it to him. I was a little ticked at him at the time, although I never said anything. But now, I would like that record back. It was the one I grew up with, and it would be a remembrance of my friend. But sadly, both he and the record are gone.
Traded in my Bobby Hutcherson album and picked up the Charlie Hunter and this JALC on CD with the credit.
Larry Goldings, Peter Bernstein, Bill Stewart ~ Ramshackle Serenade
I rarely buy records at record stores but when I saw it yesterday I had to have it. I don't have enough Billy Taylor in my collection and I'm trying to fix that. Excellent pianist. Sorry to hear about your friend. Music can take us back to places and times like few other things.
Saw these today on the record hunt...crazy.
Hey, thanks montrecott. I didn't mean to kind of overtake your Billy Taylor post, but whenever I see that record, that's what I think about. It's such a great album. Love that tune "Ever So Easy". There are some really nice ballads. Just great originals. Great rhythm section too, with Earl May on bass, and Percy Brice on the drums.
You know, the way I feel about this LP, is one of the reasons I love records.
Hey guys. I was watching a clip the other day where Barry Harris was talking about Terry Pollard. She was a part of the great Detroit scene. Check her out here on piano and vibes. Outtasight...
IMO, she puts Terry Gibbs away on the vibes...
I think this one might not be real common. Found three Brebeck LP's last week all of first release Promo mono's. all three the vinyl in excellent shape with great covers. All at my local thrift store.
