Sahib Shihab-Sentiments

Just trawling thru my records this weekend and realized, just how much stuff has been uploaded to the blogs already!!! so its difficult not to duplicate but i will try my best lol!!
Anyway i dont think this album has been posted in recent times, but it has a reissue which is a two album CD featuring both storyville recordings. The other being the Danish radio jazz group album which is available for purchase at all good record stores!!!! ;)
I think this may of had a japanese reissue on vinyl at some point, but my rip is the original....
Side a is the strongest IMO feat 'MA'NEE' And 'THE CALL' which are my choice cuts...also the title track 'sentiments' which is rare funky organ workout by sahib....

Ripped at 320....Njoy n leave a comment...............

Lee Konitz-Stereokonitz

Hi ya'll this is my last post for a few days...away on work duties..sigh!!!
Anyway, this album is available to buy at dusty groove etc (although sold out i belive there for the moment...) but i dont think its had a full album posting on the blogs but dont quote me on it lol!!!
as quoted.. at dusty...
"One of our favorite-ever Lee Konitz albums -- a really unique session with a wonderful kind of sound! The record is one that might not please all Konitz purists -- as Lee plays a bit of Varitone sax and flute in addition to his usual acoustic alto. However, the set's got an amazing edge that you don't really hear in his other work -- and was recorded in Italy in 1968 with a hip group that's working in a tight modal soul jazz mode. The other players include Italian luminaries Enrico Rava on trumpet, Franco D'Andrea on piano, and Giovanni Tomasso on bass -- and the group grooves in a way that Konitz ensembles never do, pushing Lee to do these solos that actually open up a bit more than usual, almost even showing a bit of the spiritual jazz influences of the time. Titles include "Komonia", "Midnight Mood", "Take Seven", "Tune Down", and "Terre Lontane"

Now my rip is a french reissue i believe on RCA MASTERS and im not sure what the original cover looks like, prob the italian reissue is the correct cover??
Cant say iv seen the original vinyl for sale, so im interseted in its value anyone???
Anyway ripped at 320..a must for modal nuts like myself!!!!
