1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    See the bottom of this page. I don’t know if that undercuts Amazon, but if the prices are even close I would rather support Presto.

    Thanks for that. Those weekly jazz roundups at Presto are also useful for featured albums, new releases and reissues on all formats.

    I ordered those Karen Mantler cat albums.

    It seems rude not to...

    I wish I was called Pablo Calogero. Ethan Winogrand would be closer to the truth, though.

    Presto tell me they will be getting the Tubby Hayes CD box when it is released, although not the vinyl. I’ll probably get it from them rather than direct from Decca as they are a decent, helpful company. Their physical store in Leamington Spa is pleasant to visit, too.

    The Roland Kirk 5 CD Original Album Series looks tempting, all Atlantic stuff.

    Never realised Presto had a store.

    OK - I’ll go for that Henderson box too. And Ethan Iverson’s Common Practice. And I’ve just heard something from Lonnie Smith’s Evolution on France Musique La Jazz that sounded pretty invigorating, I’ll have that as well. So that’s enough for free postage (and all cheaper than ******.)

    It’s the last day for the ECM reductions. I have gone for the Ethan Iverson mentioned above and the 4CD box of Jack DeJohnette’s Special Edition which had passed me by completely. The Blue Notes can wait as there is another week to go.

    I was also thinking of getting this, but decided against it as I realized that once you have heard one piece of jazz improv based on WG Sebald’s ‘Rings of Saturn’ played on a Suffolk church organ...

    Bit late on this, but yes, that is how it started out. When the current owner, who is a real music supporter, bought it (as a bit of a retirement hobby) it was just a local music shop with a few classical CDs. Since then the mail order side has been built up significantly and the music has diversified into jazz as well through the knowledge of the current management.
