    I can't believe how clean everything sounds now, especially both guitars - they seem much more intertwined now, and I'm hearing little guitar riffs/licks I've never heard before.

    I just went to Vacation Vinyl for it. Apparently some copies there have a golden ticket which gets you a Baroness prize pack. Mine didn't have it, but it did have a poster signed by the band.

    Have trouble resisting buying from Digitalis, ordered both the new LPs a few days ago...

    The Slaves - Spirits of the Sun LP
    Birch Cooper - I Was a Teacher LP

    The Decimus 11 LP that recently came from them is killer.

    I haven't bought records in a month in order to save a little money. I'm definitely going insane.

    I have the opposite problem. You should invite me over and listen to mine. (Or vice versa, though while I was out of town one of these times, someone has clearly fucked around with my speaker config and I can't figure out how to get it to not be so over-the-top bass-y sounding).

    Just FYI, Polyvinyl has some RSD 2012 titles for sale on their website; I just bought a copy of the Xiu Xiu/Dirty Beaches and Deerhoof/of Montreal split 7"s for $5 a piece!

    What kind of jazz are you into or familiar with? What do you want to explore more of? Personally, I'm a diehard fan of bop and hardbop.

    I know it's super cliche, but Miles Davis is a really good place to start, if you haven't already. Most people are lucky to have been around for the creation of a single new form of jazz, but Miles was instrumental in the foundation of at least three or four. No one else in the history of jazz was as instrumental in the creation and evolution of different styles over such a long period. He's not my favorite by any stretch, but his catalog is much too good and varied to overlook.

    Plus he had fantastic taste in sidemen, many of whom became major jazz players themselves. Coltrane, Tony Williams, John McLaughlin, Sonny Rollins, Bill Evans were all part of Davis' group at some point.

    Tad Dameron and Joe Jones as well. And early in his career, Miles was a sideman for guys like Charlie Parker and Max Roach in the late 40s and early 50s before he went on to invent Cool Jazz.

    Ill start by saying, i absolutely LOVE JAZZ...!!! But i find myself having the hardest time categorizing it when it comes to my vinyl. From what ive gathered there are multiple forms that originated from the original Dixieland type jazz that started in New Orleans and then moved its way north towards Chicago and New York. Then came everything else.... Latin Jazz, Space Jazz, Cool Jazz, etc etc.... but the biggest issues ive had is categorizing the 'Smooth Jazz' era. This is the era i feel somewhat ruined jazz, popularized it to a point where every pop star and their grandmother where attempting to put out a jazz album. For example is Glenn Miller jazz.... is Henry Mancini jazz.....???

    So far the artists that have interested me are; Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Ahmad Jamal, Buddy Rich, Dave Brubeck, few others i cant remember (at work). I love horns, i love drums, and i love keys, which seems to be the primary instrumentation.

    So for now, and until i get home, ill leave the floor open... i really dont know anything and im dying to learn. So please, any insight on the genre would be amazing. What defines jazz.....? What is Bop and Hardbop.....? Who are some of the artists i should deff check out....?

    Heaven 17 - Contenders 12"
    Cerrone - Trippin' on the Moon 12"

    Glenn Miller is definitely Jazz. Definitely. That swing/big band stuff from the 30s and 40s. I don't much care for that stuff, though, I really like the music that sprung as an anti-thesis to big band: Bebop. Younger players wanted music that people couldn't dance to, that the older guys couldn't play along with. Fast, virtuosic, intellectual & completely off its head, bop formed the foundation of "modern jazz," and reached a certain level of maturity in the 1960s as it fractured into different styles of jazz, such as free jazz. Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, Kenny Clarke, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Lennie Tristano, Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Christian, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Al Haig, and JJ Johnson are a few of my favorites. Important also to recognize some of the guys that had a huge impact on bop players, such as Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge (Eldridge is by far my favorite trumpeter of all time).

    Hard bop came about in the 1950s and was basically bop influenced by the rhythm & blues, using rhythms and phrasing from R&B and blues, particularly in the saxophone & piano playing. A large emphasis was also placed on rehearsing and presenting the performance as a deliberate, well-thought piece of art, as opposed to the "Birdland" scene of the early 50s where promoters hired a soloist to sit in with the house rhythm section and solo endlessly on blues & standards that folks recognized. A lot of the same players here: Monk, Art Blakey, Coltrane, Mingus, Cannonball Adderly, Gigi Gryce, etc. Of course there are others, but at this point two hard bop albums you must listen to are Blue Train and Moanin; they're brilliant.

    Ahhhh, Monk was deff one i left out.... I have 'Monk's Dream', and its one of my favorites.

    Youve once again managed to put things in perspective for me!!! Something a lot of other people, including my grandma and her husband couldnt do..... This is the kind of info and education ive been looking for. I will head straight home and check out those albums, as well as a number of those artists. Seems like the Bluenote label is an ideal place to do research.....?

    Also where do Jazz vocalists play a roll in any of this.....? Especially female artists....? Is Lena Horne jazz.....???

    Oh man, yes. I consider Lena Horne jazz, though she recorded a lot of schmaltzy sides for labels in Hollywood. She could really get down, though. As is usually the case, the ladies get left out most of the time, but there were some stunning female singers. Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Etta James, etc are the biggest names, but once you delve in you'll find a lot of ladies that could really throw down.

    Vocalists/bandleaders also get overlooked from time to time, but they're certainly out there. Cab Calloway is one of my favorites.


    EDIT:

    Cool story, bro:

    I went to a Giants games last year, got to the park a bit early and the organ player started destroying "Moanin;" it was incredible. Dude played all the solos verbatim, which is no easy thing to do, and then threw down his own solo. When he was done I ran over to the giant mitt and shook his hand. Shit was tight. Unfortunately I don't think any of the 2,000 other people there were actually listening.

    If anyone wants the other copies, there is an ebay seller who has Baroness' Red Album and Blue Album for sale at list price. They're both going for well above that now, and he has one copy left of blue, two of red.

    I just bought both.
