  1. Jasmine (Made in Czecholsovakia)

    Needle drops I'm afraid, but the original tapes are not believed to survive.
  2. Columbia vault reissues wish list

    I have this as a Koch issue purchased from Dusty Groove about fivr years ago,so it is doubtless OOP by now. Don't hasve the disc to hand (under a pile of discs) to check for any additional material. The Tubby Hayes/Clark Terry disc was withdrawn because Polygram (as was) owns it; it originally came out when Columbia and Phillips had a distribution deal. This has come up on this site before.
  3. Charles Christopher Parker Jr

    I'm involved in a dispute over at Wikipedia over Charlie Parker's middle name. I used the "Biographical Dictionary of Jazz" (1999) as confirmation for this, although the one volume Grove (1994) is silent on this detail. Someone querying my addition on the talk page points that Ross Russell in "Bird Lives" (yes I know!) complains about the Christopher addition to his headstone, and I'm aware (from the web) that the Reisner biography (1963) quotes Addie Parker saying that Christopher is indeed false, but the confusion persists. Incidentally, the Britannica site agrees with Charles Christopher Parker, Jr being his birth name! Thanks!
  4. Fantasy CD's on sale everywhere?

    Have any of the other UK based contributors come across any domestic special offers?
  5. Fats Domino among the missing

    Fats Domino is safe.
  6. "John Fordham looks at one of the unsung heroes of modern jazz recording - Riverside Records. In conversation with legendary record producer and label owner Orrin Keepnews, they chart how the label came to record some of the key jazz albums of the fifties and early sixties. "In this first part, Keepnews tells how he dealt with the sometimes difficult Thelonious Monk in the studio, signed pianist Bill Evans and recorded one of jazz's first statements on civil rights, Sonny Rollins' Freedom Suite." Source The listing in the "Radio Times", at least, misses the word "unsung." I think I'll guffaw in less than thirty seconds when I hear this.
  7. The rip-off labels

    Classics does its mastering from "unlisted sources", as the Penguin Guide authors put it; copyright on LPs pressed since the start of 1955 still applies in Europe. The point is that Davies and Kendall used original 78s. The Italian Giants of Jazz label (still available in the UK) should be included in the rip-off list.
  8. Library of America

    The two volumes on the Civil Rights movement are particularly engrossing.
  9. Jazz on TV - Question for Brits

    Saved this from a "missing television" bulletin board a few years ago. Apart from J=Junked, the other abbreviations have some curiousity value (R1=16mm, R3=35mm kinescope/telerecording) so I've left them in.

  11. Syndication........

    Haven't television shows in the US always suffered from cuts when syndicated to local stations? As a former trekkie, I remember that this was a regular complaint twenty years ago. (The familiar grows tiresome eventually.) The squeezing of the end credit sequences happens here too, though mainly only on the more commercial channels. Damn the practice.
  12. Here Ry the way, the "about" section on the right is wrong; their are two Brian Mortons who have written for The Nation.

    What's the problem and how does the solution differ from what already happens in any case?
