New New Stuff
1 Miles Davis
The Complete In A Silent Way

I've never listened to this album before but have only heard rave reviews from numerous friends. Whenever I buy a Davis album I usually wish I had gotten the complete box set so I went ahead and got it straight off this time. I'll be listening to it later today.
2 Derrick Gardner and the Jazz Prophets
A Ride to the Other Side

Derrick Gardner on trumpet, his brother Vincent on trombone. I heard the opening track Funky Straight on NPR the other day and it was strong enough for me to buy the whole cd, which came out in 2007. It's the most recent jazz recording I have in my collection. A very fun and overall enjoyable album.
3 Robert Lockwood Jr.
The Legend Live

Robert Lockewood Jr. was the step son of Robert Johnson and was personally taught by him. He was also the first African American to appear on a radio show with the famous King Biscuit Show. He played weekly in downtown Cleveland until his death in 2006. Enough said.
4 Thelonious Monk
Monk's Blues

Apparantly this is Big Band Monk, should be interesting.
5Bob Dylan
Live 1966

The fourth installment in the Bob Dylan bootleg series, this is the infamous Albert Hall show where a "fan" heckles Dylan and calls him Judas for playing an electric set and betraying his folk roots. Even though it's a shame this fan was a complete asshole, it did drive Bob to a spectacular performance in spite of him. Highly recommended
6 Woody Guthrie
The Asche Recordings

This is a huge 4 disc box set of Guthrie's best. in all 105 brilliant folk songs, many for adults but the children's songs are special treats also.
7 The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings

This is a HUGE book with reviews of 14,000 jazz cd's, giving information on both the quality of the music as well as the best reissues for sound quality. This will be indispensable for me from now on.
8 The Real Book 6th edition

I had an old 5th edition that was falling apart and more and more jazz players are calling for newer songs that don't appear in the older edition. I already miss the 5th edition though and recopying all my notes has been a royal pain in the ass. Oh well, that's the price of progress.
