  3. Lee Konitz R.I.P.

    So the label is incorrect? They wrongly pressed the wrong master for this single?
  4. 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:

    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.
  8. 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. As a Greek I was amazed by the oriental scales played in this track. Then the explanation came with the co-crediting to the Greek-American Nick Gravenites who obviously introduced Bloomfield et al. to such scales. Groundbreaking.
