Lots of pre-ordering today May 10, 2008

Posted by Mike C. in Jazz, Personal.

After browsing the Upcoming Jazz Releases page at allaboutjazz.com, I just pre-ordered a whole mess of CDs:

Al Turner, “Movin'” (5/20)
Yellowjackets, “Lifecycle” (featuring Mike Stern) (5/20)
Wayman Tisdale, “Rebound” (6/3)
The Jeff Lorber Fusion, “The Jeff Lorber Fusion” (re-issue) (6/10)
The Jeff Lorber Fusion, “Soft Space” (re-issue) (6/10)
Gerald Albright, “Sax For Stax” (6/24)
Nick Colionne, “No Limits” (6/24)
Eric Darius, “Goin’ All Out” (6/24)

Last April, I bought the original “Jeff Lorber Fusion” and “Soft Space” LPs on eBay, thinking it would be ages before those albums would ever be released on CD.  When they came, I recorded the tracks on both from my turntable to my DAT (Digital Audio Tape) recorder.  Then, I recorded what was on the DAT to my computer as WAVE files, which I also saved as high-quality MP3s.  Now, they’re coming to CD on Wounded Bird Records.  Go figure.  At least the LP versions held me over for a year.

I pre-ordered David Benoit’s new album, “Heroes,” a week ago.  That comes out May 27.  Outside of that, I had no idea any of the other albums listed in this post were coming out.  But I know now and look forward to hearing them.

P.S. Still bored and lonely.
