      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

195 posts in this topic

Any thoughts on the snippet of MMS #8?

Here's mine: amazing drums!!!!

I'm a jazzhead but I don't have enough widespread knowlede to ID anything in this excerpt. My tastes are mostly limited to:

Ornette

Sun Ra

Coltrane

Shepp

Dolphy

Ayler

Tim Berne

John Zorn

and anything on 'avantgarde' or 'free improv' labels new and old

I've ordered but now must wait for Australian shipping....

Anyone have a copy yet?

Mine's gonna be at my place tomorrow according to my tracking info. Very excited.

My thoughts for now:

The mix is going to be great

i got mine yesterday and have been listening to it....it's very good, reminds me alot of the jazz mixes in the Mind Fusion series...

but there's alotta dope shit and it's mixed well, it's not just a collection of tracks--there's plenty of little vocal samples and crazy random shit mixed in between...

still getting the feel for it though and then i'll write a big double review on my blog of High Jazz and this one

I just got mine. I will listen in a second, but it would have been nice if I got the Clouds Over the Pacific cd with it.

I knew they were going to pull that. Glad I placed my order after COP was announced.

this is arguably the best medicine show yet if you ask me. right up there with 2 and 5. also, i think this may have some of the best interludes/soundbites of any madlib release i've ever heard (see: pharoah).

Pharoah is too sick, the whole track is just awesome.

I think it's incredible how it has grown on me from the 3rd listen onwards

I thought it was a let down after a couple listens but it clicked when I just let the music ride not paying attention to the tracks sequencing

very fine work. exquisite selections

Thank You Madlib
