Duke Pearson Trio - Bag's Groove

barabara sounds sez:
There were a couple of comments about the sound quality of the last post, but since the imbalance appears to be inherent in the CD (not the rip), I thought the best solution would be to post this...
Essentially it's the same trio session from 1961 as for Angel Eyes, featuring Thomas Howard and Lex Humphries, but without the track Angel Eyes (not sure about why they felt the need to do that). In Japan this was on the Jazz Line imprint, whereas in the US it seems it was on Black Lion. Same difference for me.

Thanks for this superb rip.
However, it seems that the track 4 is corrupted.
Can you upload it separately, please?

Angel Eyes is left off of this disc because it is actually from a different session with Bob Cranshaw on bass and Walter Perkins on drums.

Perhaps the question should have been why they tacked on Angel Eyes onto this particular session instead of just leaving it where it belonged — on the Hush! album...
It's Not something I'm going to lose sleep over.

anyone else have problems with track 4?

I downloaded the archive twice. Tried to extact files using Power Archiver, WinRar, Free Zip and 7-Zip. The result is always the same: 04 Jeannine mp3 The file is corrupt (bad CRC).
Tried to fix the problem with Zip Repair and Winrar, but it didn't work.
So I really don't know what else I could do.

This appears to be a MediaFire-problem. Happened to me (and mates) more than once that a zip- or rar-file wouldn't extract without at least one track being corrupted. It remains a mystery what MediaFire does to the files, but it's definitely annoying.

@ Arkadin
Thanks for the input mate. I've never had problems with MF — maybe a Mac vs. PC problem? I dunno.
Usually I don't go the extra mile for people who prfeer to remain anonymous. But your input has swayed me ;—)
Track 4 has been uploaded again...

Taro nombei, thank you so much for the re-upload of the track 4.
I mentioned everything I tried and all softwares I used in my previous comment just to let you know that I'm not a bloody amateur who doesn't have a clue how to deal with the situation.
But in this case I was helpless.
Thank you for your time and effort.
It's much appreciated.

@ Arkadin … "Usually I don't go the extra mile for people who prfeer to remain anonymous"

Well Anonymous does not means bad @ all, i myself am not the previous Anonymous :-) but still an anonymous. Why? because i just don't want one google or whaterver account. BTW you Arkadin you are also just one Anonymous with a nice screen name :-)

Thanks for the track

@ Juan Perez

Now that's the kind of anonymous comment I'd go at least a kilometer for :–)

It's true that 'no google account' does not = 'bad'.
Even so, I do prefer a dialog with someone who is not concealing their identity — which of course you aren't.

As for Arkadin, well he is a whole lot more than just 'a nice screen name' — go check out his brilliant blog straight away!

thanks for dropping by JP!

Last time, I saw Jeannine the dollar signs stood in between. Was a love lost to the rising cost. But since then I've not seen Jeannine I have not seen Jeannine.......... Be glad to see some Eddie Jefferson up if you have any. Guess some people just never satisfied. No annonymities here.

Duke Pearson, primarily as a sideman, is legendary in 50's and early 60's jazz growth. Thanx for this unusual CD with Pearson leading the way.
