On November 12th, Egon’s hosting his last record store of 2016 at Rappcats, selling records from his collection, one-day only. This event will continue in 2017, once every quarter, with unique records being made available at each event. For this event, he’s also selling rare jazz records from the 50s, 60s and 70s, all sourced from the well-maintained archives of a serious Pittsburgh collector: from first press, stellar copies of classics like John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps” to Ian Carr’s 70s modal fusion. Of course, records from Island funk to West African highlife to Brasilian bossa-nova will also line the walls of the 1500 square foot Rappcats space in Highland Park.
We at Now-Again have recently issued the World Experience Orchestra’s two spiritual jazz masterworks as part of our Now-Again Reserve subscription series. A career-wide retrospective of Houston drummer Bubbha Thomas and his Lightmen Plus One group – including many unreleased tracks – has been in the works for the past decade, and is planned for issue in 2017.
Also available on site will be the entire Now-Again catalog — for a one day discount of 25% less than our normal retail prices. If you can’t make it to Highland Park, all online Now-Again orders from the Rappcats store placed on November 12th will receive a 25% discount as well.
