Kickstarter for Jazz Vinyl - Jerome Sabbagh's The Turn

There's a new Kickstarter project to help talented saxophonist Jerome Kabbagh press his latest recording on vinyl. But not just any vinyl -- he wants Doug Sax and the Mastering Lab to handle this. See, the man has taste. Check it out - this is a project of love not commerce. There is hope for music when an artist is this committed, but only if he can reach a supportive audience. Take a listen.  I've heard the full recording and it's excellent, with strong supporting guitar too. This group is worth knowing.  Now, tell me where you can get a mint, high quality pressing of original jazz on three sides of vinyl for $20.  Less than the price of yet another edition of Kind of Blue, or another Zep reissue...I'm in, give it a shot and you can get to influence what gets released.
