I haven't posted for a long time - too busy listening to jazz

Recently picked up the box set of the Complete Art Pepper at Ronnie Scott's by Pure Pleasure Records. Fantastic music and sound quality.
Also Shirley Horn , Softly by Org Music and A Lazy Afternoon on Steeplechase. She was a phenomenal singer.

I have just read back though all of the postings and there are only a few mentions of Bill Evans who was arguably the founder of the modern jazz trio. The Riverside Collection Box Set by Analogue Productions is excellent. Currently backordered although you can find almost anything on Discogs.com.

Also the recent releases on Resonance Records are worth looking for. The LPs are hard to find unless you want to pay silly money in the used market. They were released in limited editions for Record Store Days. They are available however on CD and download - some DSD.

A relative newcomer that I highly recommend is Yuko Mabuchi and her trio. She is based in Los Angeles and records for Yarlung Records. The recording quality is exceptional and her playing is beautiful, full of energy - and really swings! Watch her on YouTube. She has two releases, one of which is available on vinyl. Both also on cd and dsd.

BTW, Yarlung is also worth checking out for their other releases - they have a website of course.
