Christmas Haul

Not a big haul, but I received some new jazz discs for Christmas. Except for a couple tracks released on compilations, the recordings from the Trio Of Doom have finally been released. The Trio Of Doom is the probably the ultimate power trio with John McLaughlin on guitar, Jaco Pastorius on bass and Tony Williams on drums. Unfortunately the album is short but there is plenty of mind blowing playing on it.

Also released this year was The Complete On The Corner Sessions from Miles Davis. The box set comes in tin slipcase with the cover painted on both sides along with a huge booklet and the six discs. A lot of the material recorded during these sessions went on to be released on many other Miles Davis albums. Can't wait to dig through it all.
