Went to Rotate this, and they only had Les Stances, which was like $28, not the double release. I'll have to look elsewhere...

On the plus side, I did get:

Sun Ra - Space is the place

The Hummers - Save the Jets

The Poets of Rhythm - Discern/Define

I gots me some listening to do!

$28, eh? Must have been an import... I paid about $14 for mine - although it sounds like it was re-mastered from vinyl (a little hissy at times) it still sounds fucking great.

"Space Is The Place" is a fun album... enjoy!

There. I imagine that the subject line got those who are interested...

Okay, so here's the deal... I've been listening to a lot of jazz over the last two or three years, particularly beyond the Miles Davis/John Coletrane stuff that gets everyone started. I've found a lot of good stuff, but I'm always looking for it - y'know, the feeling you felt the first time you "got" Kind of Blue, or Bitches' Brew, or A Love Supreme, or My Favourite Things, or whatever it was that made you feel that way (insert your own favourite Davis/Coletrane/Monk/Mingus/Dolphy/Shorter/Parker/Hancock/Gillespie/whatever thing here).

I think I found it.

Go check out the new EMI France series "Americans Swinging In Paris" - lots of ol' time jazz like Lionel Hampton, but also the Art Ensemble of Chicago.

That's it. Buy this. Two albums on one CD, 1970's "Les Stances A Sophie" and 1969's "People In Sorrow".

Jesus Fuck.

Spacey, like the Grateful Dead during drums/space... funky... jazzy... trippy... sometimes Sun Ra-ish.... I dunno what else to say. MarcO, secondtube, Esau13, Cyberhippie - I'm lookin at YOU. Go. Now. To the store. As far as I know, this is the only CD edition of these albums.

HURRY UP, for fuck's sake!!!!
