  1. Anyone order from FNAC?

    Should have specified fnac.com not .be or .ch
  2. Anyone order from FNAC?

    Having what may be a bad experience...
  3. Which Jazz box set are you grooving to right now?

    Bass AND drums could be a bit more forward...
  4. Will there be separate releases of the individual albums, do you think?
  5. Warne Marsh on Schoenberg

    This is the film music piece, along with the story: https://www.schoenberg.at/index.php/en/joomla-license-sp-1943310036/begleitungsmusik-zu-einer-lichtspielscene-op-34-1929-1930 Pity they didn’t ask Warne about Picasso and Joyce.
  6. Streaming, eh? That and climate change. I dunno.
  7. Thanks Simon! Needle drops they self-evidently were, those Japanese and subsequent issues. Filled a gap, though - but not as much as this fine-looking box. Congratulations!
  8. Hi David,

    Let me know if you'd like the box score from the game.

    If so, send me your e-mail so I can respond directly.

  9. Tips for Appreciating Baseball?

    Thank you for looking that up! I didn’t know how to do that. Yes, I believe it was 1999, as Ashby left the Padres that year. The fact I misremembered proves my point about not fully appreciating what you see as a novice spectator. Thanks again for checking that for me. Very pleased to have my memory corrected!
  10. Tips for Appreciating Baseball?

    First game I ever saw was probably the best - Andy Ashby shut out the Dodger$ for a 1-0 Padres win - no longer remember who he was up against. That was as tight a game as you will ever see, but I wasn’t familiar enough with baseball to really appreciate it. Got the hang of it more since then - Go Padres! - but the find points escape me, as they still do with cricket...
  11. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    On the last leg. So good. Next up, Tristano /Konitz. Meanwhile in the car, Fifties Hank, all the way through. Oh yes.
  12. Couple of new tunes, mostly alternates. Im tempted by this at the price but I’m put off by the shipping, duty and post office fees. Hm.
  13. “Finally, I get to be famous!”
  14. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread
