    It can't get any simpler than this! Piano and bass. Wonderful improv by the two masters. Great recording, too.

    damn i forgot about this one.
    will make a note of it so i wont forget to buy that.
    thnx

    @ clark
    youre right. a fart will definitly sound better on jbl ore altec.
    i listen to a lot of audiophile sets over here in the lowlands.
    the trend however is to reduce the diameter of the bass drivers.
    One of the reasons i love jbl so much is the big ass woofers with a huge magnetic field wich make bass sound very naturally. at least thats my opinion.
    finally i have a pair of 604 8g's....there not easy to find in the netherlands

Tony Williams, drums.I just realized why people keep listing names I already mentioned.
    if I were not me and I used ignore lists, I would probably be on mine.
    Enjoy your new blue faced toys,

    Hi Clark!

    This list is getting really good, thank you for digging through your archives, I appreciate it. I found something on amazon but it doesnt list much about it, do the track listings ring a bell.....
    http://www.amazon.com/Great-Jazz-Tri...3945331&sr=1-2

    I am curious about this album with all that you've said and now Tony Willimas on it, last I heard of him was when he was quite young playing with Miles, this is worth searching out. Thank you for your time!
    As far as repeat posts I have to agree with Heather's assesment for I am guilty of the same, sometimes I just stumble into a thread and bounce around its pages especially if its a large thread, there is just so much information/knowledge here

    Been trying to enjoy the new toys, but I think Bo summed it up perfectly, "so much gear so little time" (excuse if misquoting).

    Steve K,
    Duke Ellington & Ray Brown, thats got to be simply beautiful, thank you for the suggestion!

    Almost forgot... do you guys remember the Barney Miller tv show from the 70's, am I off targer here or did that have a great musical intro real funky with great bass and equally great guitar, I always wanted to hear more of it. Does anyone know any more about this? I know Larry Carlton did a lot of stuff for tv.
    Just play music!

    Yep, I just ordered that Basie CD myself! Thanks, SteveK!
    Plus Joni Mitchell's "Don Juan's Reckless Daughter" -
    I'd heard that was some of Jaco's better work with her ...

    I drove in today listening to some Eberhard Weber - from "Stages of a Long Journey" -
    I used to enjoy his stuff in the past but somehow I lost touch ... very nice!

    EDIT: I found the quote about Jaco on the Joni Mitchell albums - wikipedia bio on Jaco -
    "During the course of his musical career, Pastorius played on dozens of recording sessions for other musicians, both in and out of jazz circles. Some of his most notable are four highly regarded albums with acclaimed singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell: Hejira (1976), Don Juan's Reckless Daughter (1977), Mingus (1979) and the live album Shadows and Light (1980). His influence was most dominant on Hejira, and many of the songs on that album seem to be composed using the bass as a melodic source of inspiration."

    I ordered "Don Juan's Reckless Daughter" this morning as I already own the other 3 - and the DVD of Shadows and Light !
    2ch - Oppo981, JoLida502, JBL L200+, KEF 105.4
    HT7- XDA-2, BDP93, 4b NRB, B&K 5ch amp, Vandy 3A, 2Ce, VCC1, TF600 & JBL 4641

    I'll be damned, that is it. Same cover even. I hope it is a Japanese (virgin) Vinyl pressing. When you get it you can tell by holding it up to a light. You will be able to see through it. The fidelity of these pressings is unbelievable.

    No problem on the research. Thank you for this thread! It is proving to be a gold mine for anyone willing to read it. I can always "suffer" through someone helping me rediscover my own collection.

    I'm a huge Barney Miller fan. I will try and find out who that was.

    My Alzheimers moment for the day. Of course a recent issue remaster would be a CD. Don't worry, CDs with the sash in Japanese - an Obi - are usually very high quality. If you do ever see any Japanese vinyl you like for a good price, jump right in. This CD should be a nice addition to your music library.

    Many USA remasters stink. They are compressed to hell and are often worse than the original CD. Take the obi to be a Good Housekeeping seal of approval generally.

    Speaking of Alzheimers, how did I forget Eberhard Weber? A staple of the ECM house band as well as a leader. An all time favorite of mine:

    A follow up CD, much darker and more somber :http://www.ecmrecords.com/Catalogue/...inrubchooser=9

    Great Bass Players

    Just about everyone on my short list (Headed by Jaco Pastorious and Stanley Clark) has already been named and/or listed. I've seen Yes listed frequently on the thread having to do with bands people hate, and I have to admit, Anderson's voice drives me up a wall, and I own no Yes albums; however, because of circumstances beyond my control, I did see a live Yes concert back in either 1979 or 1980, and I have to say that Chris Squire is one of the best I've actually seen perform. He played every part of the instrument.

    Hi Clark, I jumped the gun a bit and ordered it prior to your last post, not the import version but not a remaster either, got it for 10 bucks so I figured I'd take a gamble. Picked up the Ellington & Ray Brown, I love the Duke, one of his last recordings (not the last) also took a shot at the Joni Mitchel album you recommended, its a nice start, thanks again.
    I know I'll be checking this list from time to time and slowly make my way through it, will check the library as well, they come through with obscure/non main stream stuff from time to time.

    Whizzer I believe it, as per the buffalo 66 reference on that thread, that bass was wild, I would love to hear more in same vein. Sometimes circumstances out of our control are not a bad thing

    We are on a Roll! no kidding, I think it would take me a year to sample the material that has been listed so far.


    BARNEY MILLER theme song (quality not so great but its just funny hearing that after many years....

    http://www.sitcomsonline.com/sounds/...usicbedtag.wav

    Someone should redo a version of it and really go to town on it!
