I need to try and find some samples of these records you keep putting up...I can't afford to buy a lot, so I need to be selective about what I purchase. Some of your selections are a bit difficult for me to find!

If you're addressing me, I've been collecting lps since '71 or so (though I have had some since '68 or so) and cds since '88 and have over 15,000 recordings. Many have gone in and out of print over the years. Amazon.coim marketplace sellers and half.com are good sources.

LR, what I've been doing is using Spotify or you tube to listen to new music.  For example, all the Bill Evans Discs both Lon and I have talked about are on Spotify for free (only an occasional audio commercial) and the sound is rather good via computer...less so with mobile devices. I just looked and the first set I would reccomned of Bill Evans... The Complete Live at the Village Vanguard 1961...is on Spotify in addition to many box sets...all verve output box, all Fantasy output box, 1980 Village Vanguard box,  1980 Keystone box, etc.  Some albums sometimes won't be available, for example the label ECM doesn't allow it's albums on Spotify usually. The Art Farmer album Lon recently showed...Isis.... is there and I plan on listening to it soon. Anyway, today, unlike 10 years ago, there are many ways to listen before you buy.  I hope this helps.  Mark. http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Village-Vanguard-Recordings-1961/dp/B000AMJEKA/re...

Lately I've been listening to Keith Jarrett's Solo concerts of the 70's and his more recent "Standards Trio" work all of which is fantastic!  Below a couple samples...Mark.

Anyone listen to Chris Botti in Boston? This live set struck me for its realism and transparency. Very nice live recording.

LR, glad to help.  Part of the joy of Music is sharing.  I'm sure Lon would agree.  I listened to the Soul Note disc Lon gave us....Isis with Art Farmer, which was very nice.  That lead me to this disc released March of this year, which I am really digging as I type....Mark.

OK LR, this might be more help than you want but I've read a lot of books on Jazz and Jazz Artists and for someone just starting the "Jazz Journey" I would recommend the below two books.  They're a lot of fun to read and will educate you on the most well known East Coast and West Coast players from the 20's to the 60's and their most notable recordings.  

LR, remember to take your time and enjoy the journey...don't get in a hurry. These two books are not all inclusive and may not mention artists that will become your favorites but they're a good start. Also the All music Guide to Music is a wonderful resource for all types of music and it's free on line website is easy to use...www.allmusic.com. Have Fun, Mark.

Thanks for that, Mark, that's some great info!

I have trouble getting into Jazz, so I agree with you I need to start out slow. I've played A Kind of Blue till I almost wore out the laser and know it very well. But not much else has captivated me like that album has.

LR, Do you know these albums? They are good jazz albums that are not that hard to get into!

They may open up a window. . . .









But hey, if jazz doesn't reach you there's nothing wrong with that. It's more and more a niche genre and in my opinion all genres are valid and valuable if they bring you real enjoyment.

OK LR, all of Lon's recommendations are on Spotify.  I won't overwhelm you with albums but check out Hank Mobley's Soul Station on Blue Note Records....Mobley is less challenging than Coltrane...I think you'll like him.  You could spend a lifetime listening to just Blue Note's recordings and die a happy man...at least I could...hehe.  Now go sign up for Spotify. I'm sure you could even figure out how to stream it through you Hi Fi.  Mark.
