The Things They Say!

Some outstanding, previously unreleased, vintage albums released this year.

Thelonious Monk: MØNK.
Jazz City UK Volume 2: The Jam Sessions.
Chet Baker: Live in London Volume II.
John Coltrane: The Lost Album.
Jazz City UK: Volume 1.

For reasons known only to the distributors, we don't get many vintage albums for review other than downloads which I very rarely load down. If someone is prepared to put a CD/LP in an envelope, stick a stamp on, stand in a queue at the post office and fork out the required revenue then they will always get first call and that applies even if it's a download of the legendary Buddy Bolden cylinder they've rescued from the bottom of Lake Pontchartrain and lovingly restored in a stereo-enhanced quadrophonic mp3 format.

The above 5 are all previously unreleased albums and essential to any collection.
