  1. RIP Johnny Mandel

    Many thanks! Amazing performance indeed. What a band. And George Benson plays as God.
  2. RIP Johnny Mandel

    Has ever this UA LP been reissued digitally?
  3. Buying from Amazon Japan

    I love amazon.co.jp because I can get cds with all duties/taxes prepaid shipped in 4 days to my door in Athens.
  4. Not surprisingly, a marvelous big band new recording. It made my day today. Highly recommended. Fresh and juicy, wonderfully recorded too. " Christian McBride solidifies his role as the champion of the past, present and future of jazz with his GRAMMY® Award-winning Big Band’s new album in tribute to Jimmy Smith, Wes Montgomery and Oliver Nelson. Featuring special guests Joey DeFrancesco and Mark Whitfield, "For Jimmy, Wes and Oliver" honors the historical legacy of the jazz legends who shaped the soul of music for generations to come. "

  7. Lee Konitz R.I.P.

    So the label is incorrect? They wrongly pressed the wrong master for this single?
  8. Lee Konitz R.I.P.

    Although Miles is listed on the label: A nice story about it at: https://jazzcollector.com/features/finding-a-rare-lee-konitz-right-on-my-own-shelf/comment-page-1/?unapproved=452946&moderation-hash=cb91c9cb25edcd95181764a50c49e232#comment-452946

    Revisiting his Verve records: Absolutely. Marvelous series. I would never have had access to these recordings without these series. Viva the CD! So, your post made me revisit my japanese Lee Konitz collection:

  11. Lee Konitz R.I.P.

    RIP. I missed him when he played in Athens in 2014 (my mom's illness was at the final stage). edit: the last survivor from the Birth of the Cool sessions. Gunther Schuller before him.
  12. When Jazz populated NYC

    Thanks! Gunther Schuller had mentioned to me that dramatic decline in jazz clubs on NY, when he was in Athens 6 years ago invited by the Greek-American Union. He was so dissapointed namely for the musicians who cannot make a living out of jazz.
  13. +1000 I just saw that my udiscover order was shipped on Tuesday 24/12. Their message went to the spam folder. No tracking number though... Let's see.
