LP5326-MagicBand-Oxford-minia little late, but here you go…in alpha order.

reissues, or new releases of older music:

Keith Jarrett – Sleeper (ECM)
Jimmy Lyons – Jump Up (hat)
Pat Martino and Bobby Rose – Alone Together (HighNote)
and that Mingus Mosaic I don’t own yet.

There were a bunch of reissues on CamJazz that I discovered, Cecil Taylor, World Saxophone Qt, Bill Dixon, Steve Lacy and few others. Also some grey market European collections by Bud Powell, Jim Hall, John Williams and Steve Lacy.

I’m sure there’s others I’ll think of later!

Edit: It has come to my attention that some Jim Hall archival material came out last year. I don’t own it, but it’s worthy of this list.

    I was un-impressed by the Further Explorations (Chick Corea), but I’m a super hardcore Bill Evans fan.

    Now, that George Russell, on the other hand, is highly interesting. I want to learn more about his Lydian scale, as it influenced Evans so highly. Hmmm. I sense a new musical adventure in the wings, if I could only extricate myself from Beethoven….
