  1. Columbia/Sony have issued most of the Dave Brubeck catalog on CD except for "Compadres" and "The Last Time We Saw Paris". It is about time. On another subject- Jordi Pujol of Fresh Sound Records deserves great credit for issuing CDs of many, many LPs that otherwise would never been issued on CD. He continues today.
  2. Digitally restoring 78 records?

    I have learned to live with clicks and pops from 78s and LPs. Trying to eliminate them always seems to affect the music. The big guys, like Sony, can do a good job but IMHO not the typical collector.
  3. Anthony Ortega/Walter Benton

    Lord shows the 2 songs on Rex 26000 but with different players. Ray Vasquez and His Be-boppers- probably Vasquez on alto, Lucky Thompson on tenor, unknown p,b,d.
  4. Region Free DVD players

    I bought a region-free DVD/Bluray player in 2018, from It is a Sony BDP-S1700. 220-electronics makes a hardware modification to the circuit board to make it all-region. I actually talked to the technician who makes the modification. The modification costs $40 on top of the $99 non-modified price. No codes or anything else needed to play any DVD/Bluray. Since my purchase I am extremely happy- I have played all kinds of DVD/Bluray discs with no problems. I highly recommend this company.
  5. Doug & Jean Carn - Spirit Of The New Land

    A Doug Carn LP was issued in 1969 on Savoy label- "The Doug Carn Trio". Has been re-issued on CD.
  6. I used listening booths many times in the 50's and early 60's. LPs were not sealed in those days, most were mono. Typical price for an LP was $3.95 or less for 10-inchers. LPs were produced on heavy vinyl and were fairly resistant to scratches caused by playing prior to purchase. I think the emergence of stereo and sealed LPs and lighter vinyl LPs helped the demise of listening booths. Also in those days if after purchasing an LP you found scratches on it while playing you could return it to the record store for a refund or exchange.
  7. Paul Horn Corner

    The Paul Horn Quintet was recorded in a March 10, 1958 session on the "Stars of Jazz" TV series show #88. This session was released on Calliope LP CAL-3034. James Harrod's new book "Stars of Jazz" gives detail biographical information and a discography of that session.
  8. The Jones' CD blowout

    I would like the Hank Jones New York Rhythm Section.
  9. James Harrod's new book titled "Stars Of Jazz- Television Series 1956-1958" has a complete discography of the Calliope Label 36 LPs. It is available on Amazon.
  10. I had the Buddy Bolden LP but somehow have misplaced it. Darn!
  11. Pat Moran, Lorraine Geller, Joyce Collins, Clora Bryant, Joanne Grauer
  12. Lee Konitz R.I.P.

    Are there any recordings of Lee Konitz playing a clarinet?
  13. Candoli Brothers and Leroy Vinnegar.
  14. Looking for following 2 Calliope LPs: Both titled "Sessions, Live". 1. Cal-2023 Harry Babasin, Barney Kessel 2. Cal-3025 Candoli brothers, M. Murphy, Leroy Vinnegar
  15. LF One Calliope LP (Sessions, Live)

    Have both.
  16. Stunning breakthrough: CAL-3023 that had been listed for years on Amazon for $1,048 was revised to $10.48. I immediately purchased it. Now I am looking for CAL-3025 (Candoli Brothers/Leroy Vinnegar) to complete my collection. I am willing to pay a reasonable amount for the LP, although considerably less than $1,048. As an alternative I would like to borrow the LP to make a CDR. I would then return the LP and pay any costs both way. Come on someone out there in Organissimo- help me complete my collection! I have been collecting Calliope label Sessions, Live LPs since 2012. I now have 34 of the 36 that were released. I am missing 2: CAL-3023 (Harry Babasin and Barney Kessel) and CAL-3025 (Candolis and Leroy Vinnegar). CAL-3023 is listed on Amazon for $1,048 which is a tad more than I would pay. I continually look on eBay and have listed my 2 missing LPs on Discogs with no results from either so far. Does anyone have any ideas where to look? I am willing to pay a reasonable amount (considerably less than $1,048) for either LP..
  17. I now have Calliope 3023 and 3025. My collection of 36 Calliope items is complete! Bump.
  18. "Stars Of Jazz". A complete history of the innovative television series 1956-1958. By James A. Harrod. Also has complete discography of Calliope Records which released 36 LPs from the TV series. Absolutely outstanding work! Available on Amazon.
  19. Your music cataloging "system"

    With the stay at home situation now would be a great time to enter your 3x5 cards into an excel spreadsheet. Each card would be a record. It would take a lot of time but in the long run it would be worth it.
  20. Your music cataloging "system"

    Entering a collection onto an excel spread-sheet is quite easy. It would take a lot of time if you have a large collection but the benefits after you are done are terrific. The capability of excel to sort any column is very useful. At a minimum you could enter artist, title, and label in each of 3 columns. Additional columns could include source such as CD, CDR, LP, Cassette. Secondary artists could also be listed in separate columns. I find this very useful because some albums have more than one principal artist or for a particular artist that I follow. I also have a column for notes about the album that I want to save.
  21. Joe Pass "Sounds of Synanon"

    Frank Rehak LP Dawn DLP-1107 titled "Jazzville vol.2" is reissued on Dawn CD DCD-114 titled "Jazzville".
  22. Your music cataloging "system"

    I use an excel spread-sheet for my 4,000 CD/CDR collection. I can sort by Artist, Title, Label. For liner notes, etc I have to go to my shelves. Other than excel I have not downloaded any thing to hard drives, etc.

    Why do you consider John Mehegan "terrible"?
