    If there ever comes a point where Places and Spaces is under consideration for getting un-filed, I am officially quitting records. In my top 20 LPs in any genre, no doubt.

    Moacis Santos' Saudade is a favorite and very slept on I think.

    Montara is nice too-with my friends Bobby Matos, Johnny Palomo, & Victor "Negrito" Pantoja (RIP) on percussion-my friend Miles reissued it on CD

    Places and Spaces and Montara are both great.

    Most of the rest of the label's 1970s output was depressingly terdly, though.

    The cover is from one of Colombia's many treasured pre-Columbian artifacts (now currently in el Museo del Oro)!

    According to Jazzdisco.com, parts of Lift Every Voice were recorded in May 1969 and March 1970; Moon Rappin' was recorded in December 1969.

    Then Lift Every Voice is 1970 considering you can't release something before recording it.

    Read closer - the '70 session cuts are only extra cuts on the CD.

    Some place claim a 1970 release and others '69, I'm believing the '69.

    That Rico record is nice to consider too.

    Then it doesnt seem likely Moon Rappin' was released in '69 - discogs is accurate, it came out in 1970.

    Good call. I concede. But I honestly might start a thread about the amazing Blue Notes from 1968 and 69. Two incredible years for them.

    DB's Kofi wasn't officially released until 1995. In terms of sound, I think recording date is more relevant.

    doesnt really stand out in my head as a "blue note" album...but it is.

    When I first heard this album it flipped my wig. Love the liner notes too.



    my other fav's that I can think of have been mentioned: Grant Green Alive, Eddie Henderson: Sunburst Donald Byrd's Places and Spaces/Ethiopian Nights/Street Ladies

    From a non JFunk persp this is one of my favourites:
