I won't start spinning until about 10:30 or so.  I will finish the above Brubeck album first.

But what I really wanted to share is that I just offered $60 at ebay for a pair of 1939 RCA 5U4G rectifiers...my offer was accepted.  So now my Torii will get an upgrade to what seems to be the preferred rectifier...well at least by Mike B. and Lon. Can't wait to see what the combo of new tubes does for my system...the above rectifiers and soon to arrive Triple Mica GE 5751 Black Plates.  Mark.

PS...looking at the write up, I think these are 1954 tubes.  The date code is 439...that does mean the 39th month of 1954...right?  The seller had stated 1939 with a question mark...oh well these will still be good. auction details below...

"For sale is (2) matched 5U4G RCA full wave rectifier tubes that test to spec and were tested on a calibrated TV-7 A/U tester.

Matching date codes: 439 (1939)?

Tester minimum value: 40/40

Tube 1: 52/51

Tube 2: 54/53

Note: One tube has a broken guide pin but, does not affect the performance of the tube whatsoever!"

Yes, be careful putting that one in without the guide pin!

Good tubes I bet. Nice price. Should make the Torii sing quite well in a manly baritone! Smiley

Lon,  I don't think I have that CD..."Ballads for Two".  How is it.  I would think it'd give Chet plenty of space to do his thing.  I think there were three CDs where they collaborated. Mark.

PS...I'm almost through watching a video on you tube of Miles' Quintet Live in Paris in 1969.  I wish I could say I liked it...I can't but I tried. I was trying to convince myself to buy the Two Bootleg series sets...Live in Europe 1967 and 1969 that Pop Market has a great deal on currently...they also had a good deal on the Fillmore Live set that you've listened to recently.  The 24 hour sale will be over soon.  $65 for both sets of Bootleg series concerts for those interested.  It ends at 11am CST.  The Fillmore set was only a 6 hour sale that ended yesterday.

Mark, you'd like the Chet. I actually ordered what I thought was a used cd of the one you listed as I didn't have it, and got this one instead, which is not a problem, didn't have it. Very well recorded, sparse, sort of mournful sound on most of the tunes. I love vibes, so this is a good one for me.

Sorry you don't like the '69 Miles. The first music that really excited me when I returned from Africa at 16 in '71 was the the first Miles Davis electric albums, I love these, I love electric piano, etc.

Believe me Lon, I want to like electric Miles but I don't think it will ever happen.  Yesterday I also listened to the first seven cuts of CD #1 of the 1967 Live Bootleg series...I'll have to listen again but that music I may be able to digest. I still need to spend more time with it. I have pulled some live Miles on Labels other than Columbia from '63 and '64 before and after Wayne Shorter joined the group.  Looking at amazon, there are two Live Columbia and one Monterrey Jazz CDs from the '63-'64 period that I don't think I have...I know I'd like them.  The search continues...

Inspired by Mark and his recent spinning of Dave Brubeck albums...I haven't heard this one in a while...Cheers!  

Side note:  Paul Desmond has such great tone.  It really is beautiful...

Well, I understand, there are musical works I'll never enjoy though I've tried. Not a problem. I just happen to always love electric Miles and there really is nothing else quite like it, though some try really hard!

Right now
More Murray Perahia, this time playing Beethoven sonatas. Great box set!

Dave,  it is Paul Desmond that keeps me coming back to this music. That CD has some great music but not in the best versions...fake stereo and only 3 or four of the original live album cuts. You can't go wrong with the studio box Lon and I bought..."Brubeck Time" is in it.  Now for the Live tracks...we'll have to wait for Columbia to put out a Live album box. I'll be first in line. Mark.

1965
Austin Cromer (member of the Ravens) sings
Hubert Laws on flute and guitar
Chick Corea, piano
Richard Davis, bass
Bruno Carr, drums.

First time on cd, part of the amazing series of 24 bit remasters from Japan 2012 through this year. These sound amazing. I've been buying up bunches, just ordered all the Lateef, Jarrett, Slide Hampton and Lloyd.

Dave,  Jim Hall is wonderful.  I always look forward to finding him in new (to me) collaborations...he adds a lot to the proceedings.  I think you've spun some recently with Bill Evans and Sonny Rollins...No?  I also recently purchased one with Art Farmer.

My first CD today is a Live October 1964 German Concert with Miles' second great quintet playing mainly Miles' old book.  It's on Moon records and the sound could be better but overall it's a nice example of  Miles' new group early in it's short life.  Mark.

PS...I played the Columbia "Miles in Berlin" CD not long ago.  It was recorded about two weeks prior to this concert.  It was the earliest example of this line up that I'm aware of...
