Old Source, new Music

In his hopeful assessment of the future (As We See It), Jon Iverson celebrates downloading as a route to finding new music. No argument from me, but there is another route that I find more fun - the used vinyl rack at my local indie record shop. Picking through the jazz the other day I happened upon a misfiled record (understandably misfiled - the cover picture was Wynton Marsalis).

The recording, which set me back the vast sum of $3 was in mint condition and featured Marsalis and the Philharmonia Orchestra performing concerti for trumpet by Tomasi and Jolivet. In all my years of collecting, I've never encountered any of Andre Jolivet's music. The two works featured were his Concerto #2 for trumpet and his Concertino for trumpet, string orchestra and piano. Very interesting stuff and beautifully performed.

Now I'm looking for more of his work. Anyone got a recommendation?

Don't bother suggesting downloads. They may be the wave of the future, but I'd rather do business while I can with the last record shop in my town.

I feel the same way, Clay. At my age, I should really be on the download bandwagon, but I get way too much enjoyment out of visiting the record shop and going treasure hunting. A 128kbps iTunes download costs $0.99, but I'd much rather have an entire high-fidelity album for as little as a dollar. Even when lossless downloads get off the ground, I'll still be fishing for vinyl. I really ought to get myself a turntable!

Re: Old Source, new Music

Sorry, Rgibran, I guess I didn't make myself clear. I'm not looking for recommendations on Marsalis recordings - either Wynton or Branford. I've got plenty of both. I'm looking for other recordings of Jolivet compostitions. I'm not particular who the performers are, the composer is new to me and I'm interested in hearing more of his stuff.

Interesting that you'd recommend "Standard Time vol. 3" I like that one too. Do you have Branford's recording with Ellis entitled "Loved Ones"? Playing with Dad seems to bring out the best in both of the boys.

It's on my short list now. Thanks Clay.

BTW, Delfeayo's latest "Minions Diminion" is very good with both brothers...if you haven't heard it.
