For all vinyl fans

BING & SATCHMO will be released again on vinyl on May, 20 by Waxtime (in akustik) records. On this LP are all twelve titles of Bing, Louis and Billy May + the bonus of Now You Has Jazz.
I like to hear quality pressed vinyl LPs very much, because of the warm and fine sound, this not the best CD equals, when you compare the same titles, also on the same quality HIFI player and with the same loud speakers. Especially the warm, full voice of Bing is never matched by CD and is ideal for vinyl and shellac, to get his best vibration and sound.

BING & SATCHMO is DMM remastered and pressed with 180 gram Virgin vinyl.  You can fin the new LP on German and British AMAZON, but not on US AMAZON.

Dieter, I agree with you. There is something 'warm' and 'full blooded' about a well recorded LP played on good equipment, that is lost in the clinical sound of CDs, for all the technical brilliance that has been brought to bear on them, though the 'snap, crackle and hiss' that usually eventually creeps up on even the best cared for LPs is not something I want to return to.

I'm afraid the label 'Waxtime' is not known to me.  Some searches on the internet have revealed very little, apart from the fact that they seem to specialise in jazz reissues of largely 1960s material, some being on vinyl, and nowhere have I been able to find a 'Bing and Satchmo' listing for them.

Do you know, Dieter, if they are working from master tapes (which implies both top quality and licensing arrangements)?
And are you able to provide more information?

(Later note: Dieter, our postings coincided. The link for German Amazon is here http://www.amazon.de/Satchmo-Vinyl-Louis-Crosby-Armstrong/dp/B004S7ZZ4C/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1305122640&sr=1-3

but I have failed to find it on Amazon UK, which lists several used copies of earlier LP issues, and CDs.)

Re: For all vinyl fans

My Bing LP collection is up around 30 or so now. (Not bad for just a little over a year of collecting). Even with the brilliant re-releases done by CC and Mosaic in recent years, I still find myself going to my LP's of the same album rather than the new CD's even though the CD's have extra tracks.


All the best,

Re: For all vinyl fans

The information I have found is that Waxtimes owns to the German Braun-group, which issued under dozens of different label CDs. If you go their homepage, you can change between German and English, but on the English pages only a selection of CD labels offered. Waxtime- vinyl label- only on the German page and offers mostly old ,,original" LPs of jazz artists like Armstrong, Basie, Brubeck, Miles Davies, Chet Baker, Anita O┬┤Day, Nina Simone, Oscar Petersen, Stan Getz, but also Johnny Cash. http//www.in-akustic.com/de/MuM/label.asp?Buch=A&lab=waxtime&move=1 I have found on a German jazz page a report, which praise the high sound quality. More I can not found about this theme.- Dieter.

Re: For all vinyl fans

Thanks, Dieter.

I'm afraid the link you supplied is defective but gets me part way there. This one seems to do it.

Re: For all vinyl fans

The album is now listed on UK Amazon, but as 'not yet available'.

I much prefer LPs to CDs. They are 'warmer' (I think it was Alan Dell I first heard describe LPs in that way). I learnt a great deal about the music and performers from reading the backs of LP sleeves - something not so conducive with CDs. Also, the artwork benefits much more from the LP format, I think...

Re: For all vinyl fans

What is fun (and informative) to do is to take the booklet from the CD and read through it or keep it nearby for reference when listening to the original LP. I find that quite entertaining while listening to "Seasons", El Senor Bing", and "Southern Memoir" to name a few. Now that so much more is known and written about them one can grasp a better "feeling" for them.


All the best,

Re: For all vinyl fans

While I like the Collector's Choice edition of the "Seasons" album, especially for the supplementary material, I just can't stop loving listening to the LP of the album.  In fact, if I haven't listened to Bing for some lapse of time, that LP is nearly always the first thing I long to play.

Dieter, it is very nice to think that Bing is still coming out on vinyl, thanks for sharing the news.
