5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth sounds, 19 Jan. 2013
This is a lovely set of smooth of classic tunes, beautifully played. Highly recommended. My personal favourite is a beguiling version of Nature Boy where Bud plays the flute - sheer delight!

although the big names are there (trouble, chuck brown etc) I would suggest that you avoid this compilation as the tunes are very poor indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars waterproof jacket, 25 Sept. 2012
a good product that is light weight and breathable. Comes up rather small so go for one size larger than expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lester young - a great introduction, 26 May 2012

This review is from: Lester Blows Again (Audio CD)
This is a great introduction to the prez and covers some of his greatest recordings from the Kansas City six through to his recordings with Oscar Peterson. No liner notes and no personnel details but at the current price of around a quid for 3 discs it is a bargain. 5 Stars for the music which is sublime.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing CD, 25 April 2012

I love Dizzy but this is a very poorly mastered CD with a desultory selection of tunes from different live performances. Mine's going to Oxfam. Avoid!

4.0 out of 5 stars x-mix 3 is a winner, 2 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Enter: Digital Reality (Audio CD)
Listening to this again after 15 years sure brought back some good memories. Mesmeric, slow burning trance music that builds beautifully. I really love Aquaviva's mix brilliantly executed and well thought through. Trance became the mainstream of dance music shortly after this and as all things do, it slowly declined. This CD reflects an exciting time just before the peak of trances comercialism and the music is melodic, inventive and breathtaking.

5.0 out of 5 stars spinal tap for real, 7 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am not a fan of this kind of 'cock rock' and struggle to understand its popularity, however, I LOVED this DVD. If you thought spinal tap was funny you aint seen nothing yet - this is the same idea, the examination of what happens when a band is well past their sell by date and have run out of ideas. In this excruitating study we see a group of middle aged men struggling to find inspiration after 20 years of making one dimensional music about being 'angry'. when the ideas dry up we see the band become increasingly bitchy to each other and act like spoilt kids. The funniest part is how humourless they have become and how far they have disapeared up themselves. I liked the part when they see a hand written sign on the studio doors and Lars remarks ' matlicca! - we've been together 20 years and they still can't spell it right' - genius!
If I've told them once I've old them a thousand times it's spinal tap first puppet show afterwards.

4.0 out of 5 stars strong offering, 25 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 8 Diagrams: +DVD (Audio CD)
I have only just bought this - a few years after its original release. I needed to hear some more more wu-tang and it's been a long time. I was initially put off by poor reviews but I've got to say this CD is great. A bit over long but the production is creative and original and of course the MCing is 1st class. Only crticisms are that it is a bit over long (could have done with out track 10 and 11), not enough ghostface and the DVD is a waste of plastic. plenty to enjoy though so don't hesitate. You can buy it for pennies now so lap it up - what have you got to lose? RZA is so far ahead of the game it probably sounds better now than when it was first released!

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect mistake, 2 Nov. 2009
It was pure Serendipity when amazon sent me the wrong CD. I had ordered something else completely but this was in the case, and what a delight. Luckily I was already a Bill Evans fan and had the 'Waltz for Debby' and 'undercurrent' with Jim Hall and I must say that I think that this CD may even surpass those classics. So what are you waiting for .... do yourself a big favour and purchase this at once!
