    Jimmy Heath, and Claudio Roditti, both....RIP. Sad news.

    That Theo Crocker vid is pretty great. Love his tone.

    This is a great one for sure! The second volume is worth it too. Some real gems on both collections.

    I agree, although I feel volume one has a few more stand out tracks than volume two. BBE have released a few complete albums that are represented on these comps and there's more on the way. I particularly like this one:

    Tachibana is so good! I have that one on vinyl and CD too. A friend of mine who isn't even a fan of jazz really seems to like that album. I shared it with her on Spotify a while back and she really took to it for some reason.

    The East Plants album by Takeo Moriyama is really nice as well.

    Can’t really go wrong with any of them. More in the pipeline too!

    I concur, and thank goodness for BBE making some of these available again. It's truly a feast for the ears.

    Hello!.
    I have to agree with all of you good Fellows!.

    Next, a nice collection too IMO:
    - 70s Japanese Jazz Mix (Jazz-funk, Soul Jazz, Rare groove, Drum Breaks..) -
    Pura Vida!.

    ^ Nice! That's Tsuyoshi Yamamoto on the cover picture -- I thought I recognized him! I've got his Midnight Sugar album from when the Three Blind Mice CD reissues started back in 2014. Great piano player!

    There were some serious audiophile jazz recordings that came out on that label back in the 60s and 70s. Those reissues were eye-opening.

    Thanks for share and I have to do the homework too!!.

    Maybe of your interest:
    I've also been listening to this other "compilation comprised of young up-and-coming Australian Instrumentalists and Improvisers rooted in jazz, drawing from the 70s' deep spirituality and high grooves of Miles & Herbie to the modern street sounds of Dego & Kaidi."

    Great musics too IMO!.

    I don't think he's well-known enough around these parts to warrant his own RIP thread, but I was sad to hear that the great Boston-area drummer Bob Gullotti has passed.

    I saw The Fringe live in '87 or '88 at the Iron Horse in Northampton, back when it was still a very small room. Incendiary.

    Happy with what I have to be happy with.

    Despite being a disc released January - 2019 by Moonjune Records, totally off my radar: - great music and excellent musicians. -

    Yeah. Bob was one of the greatest jazz drummers on the planet. I studied with him for a couple years. Funny dude, and lots of discipline. Practiced regularly all the way through his career. I last saw The Fringe a few years ago at their seemingly eternal Monday night residency. Those guys really loved each other and were always pushing themselves.

    Straight ahead acoustic quartet sounding so good. Ron Carter, 82 years old.

    Wow! Ron looks so good for 82, and it's great to see he's still performing. Thanks for sharing that!

    I went to see Ron Carter do a clinic around ten years ago. He said he likes to play notes that make saxophone players sneeze.

    I'm listening to him making Wayne Shorter and James Spaulding sneeze right now, actually.

    Ron's work with "piccolo bass" (+ cello) in the 1970s was divine.

    I've never heard of those players in his band but they are all superb! And Carter's tone on the bass is so rich and beautiful. He plays a great solo improv on You Are My Sunshine later in the set.
