We are also producing a lot of tapes of the earlier titles, so new subscribers who have ordered those won't have too long to wait.

We have been working on a catch up run of earlier titles and we will begin shipping Nojima plays Liszt very soon, probably starting next week. Probably another catch up run after that and then we will ship The Sermon.

I can see the eyes rolling from our producers, and i apologize in advance, but since I work in an industry where every 90 days we're asked what we've done, I'll go ahead and what's the status of the Jimmy Smith tape again... It has been about a 90 days since it was last asked. ;-)

Well it's been about 4 months now since the last word on this tape status, so exactly when can we expect it to start shipping?

At the end of the day yesterday Shawn was trimming the first run of cover art, which just arrived. The first albums should be shipping next week.

Excellent news Doc!
This year there's been a plethora of great live music in my life. That and a bunch of other audio related projects have kept me pretty busy between tapes.
You know, that "live" stuff sounds pretty good too.

Jesse here in San Antonio.  Normally I don't chime in.  I agree with Ironbutt & Mithamo nothing beats live music recordings especially jazz.  Any one here going to the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF)?  This is will be my second year to attend .  I'll be seeing Charlie King there and my darn Stellavox is acting up again.  LOL Here are a couple of photos of me recording the Jazz Ensemble at Trinity University.

Hey Jesse,

If you peruse the "Events" forum above, I think you'll see that there's a number of us who will be there.
Hope to see you there!
