  1. Oscar Peterson session not on jazzdisco-

    OP plays piano on first 5 tracks (no organ), Lee on last 3. OP cuts were recorded in NYC at the Band Box in January 1953. Boris Rose LPs on various labels are a delightful mystery.
  2. LF Dale label 10-inch LPs

    Bump.
  3. Looking for the following 10-inch Dale Records label LPs: 1. LP-21 Stan Getz Quintet 2. LP-22 Paul Quinechette Quintet 3. LP-23 Beryl Booker and Her Piano 4. LP-24 Wardell Gray and John Hardee Quartets 5. LP-25 Billie Holiday and Stan Getz
  4. Sony Music Cuts Off Third Party Licensing (?!?)

    Maybe because of this Sony will release CDs of Dave Brubeck "The Last Time We Saw Paris" (CL2852/CS9672) and "Compadres".(CS9704).
  5. Jazz, early popular music redheads?

    Red Rodney (trumpet).
  6. Mosaic Wish List

    The Los Angeles Jazz Institute (LAJI) over the years has issued 15 CDs of previously unissued West Coast jazz sessions from the 1950's. These limited edition CDs were available only to LAJI members. The CDs would make a great Mosaic box set. Also a terrific booklet could accompany the CDs. Ken Poston is the director of the LAJI and should be contacted to see if he is interested in a Mosaic set.
  7. Looking for jazz radio stations 2018

    WUCF-FM 89.9 in Orlando is an excellent jazz 24-7 radio station. They play classic as well as current jazz. Well worth listening to. They stream on the Internet. They broadcast from the campus of the University of Central Florida.
  8. Upcoming Uptown Records releases

    For sure the last 2 cuts on disc 2 are unique. They are from a Lighthouse Allstars session.
  9. Upcoming Uptown Records releases

    Got mine today. Lots of duplication with previously issued Fresh Sound Records "Dodo's Bounce" (FSCD1019) and Lonehill Jazz "Complete Studio Recordings" (LHJ10119). I have not done a complete audit- I hope to find some unique cuts. Very nice booklet.
  10. Jazz's Transition to CDs

    To me the greatest invention after the CD is the CD recorder. I have digitized about 500 LPs to CDR. I have worn out 3 CD recorders, 1 Philips and 2 Sonys. Most of these LPs have never been released on CD so my collection includes some rare jazz music.
  11. Jazz's Transition to CDs

    Two developments brought me into the CD world. First was the invention of the CD recorder. This allowed me to digitize most of my jazz LP collection, solving the LP storage problem and enabling me to play CDRs in my car. The second was the 80 minute CDR replacing the 74 minute CDR which allowed recording 2 LPs on 1 CDR without losing any tracks. Tower Records was a god-send to jazz CD collectors. I especially remember the 2-story Tower Records store in Washington DC. The second floor was all jazz and literally had thousands of CDs. OJC and later Mosaic were wonderful providers of CDs in addition to the major labels like Blue Note, etc. I also remember that the industry suffered initially with a shortage of blank CDs as there were only 1 or 2 producers world-wide. This was solved quickly as the popularity od CDs sky-rocketed.
