  1. Sexiest album covers

  2. Milt Buckner & Jo Jones

  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    During the last few days until right now:
  4. Bobby Broom joins Northern Illinois University faculty

    Saw him with Rollins, too, and have a few of his CDs, which are excellent. Who's playing with him on that video?
  5. New DONATE button

    Same here, saving funds for replacing my prosthesis. Implants and crowns are impossible, my jawbones are too thin. One grand, still.
  6. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    For those who can't wait for the Mosaic: https://www.freshsoundrecords.com/earle-spencer-albums/2121-the-complete-black-white-recordings-1946-1949-2-cd-set.html
  7. Percy France Discography Help

    This is what Lord says: Frank "Fat Man" Humphries (tp) Herbie Nichols (p) others unknown. c. 1950 G756 Birmingham bounce Abbey 3016 G757 Doby at the bat -
  8. Sexiest album covers

    Literal translation from German - "Reise auf den Mars".
  9. Abusive and violent jazz musicians

    I've read the same was told by trombonist Melba Liston. Stories like these killed my naive belief jazz musicians might be better humans.
  10. Percy France Discography Help

    Same here. See my pm. Dan, do you have access to the Tom Lord Discography? As jazztrain said, noting with France listed there was recorded in Europe.
  11. Why not ask Maupin himself? There's a contact page on his website. http://benniemaupinmusic.com
  12. Percy France Discography Help

    Will have to go down to the basement for my Bruyninkx copy. Lord usually has everything from there, but I cannot see anything recorded in Europe. What time span?
  13. June 19 BN Japanese Reissues - uncommon titles

    Holiday For Skins is kind of in the middle between Orgy In Rhythm and The African Beat. DATC is the jazziest, TAB the most "African". But you have to enjoy drum focussed albums to repeatedly play any of them.
  14. Kenny Burrell

    As an old friend told me lasr week, "growing old is not for cowards". Glad the funding went so well, glad it all turned out to be legit, or I would have felt pretty bad for posting the link. My best wishes to Kenny and his wife - he will always stay my favourite jazz guitra player. And, seeimg all the famous musicians who donated, it feels good to see how much he is respected and loved on the scene. He deserves it.
  15. Ernie Andrews (early years)

    Now this is the perfect artist for our friends at Fresh Sound ......
