  4. what are you drinking right now?

    This weekend's evening bottle - 2019 Riesling vom Löss, trocken, Lorcher Kapellenberg. I'm not a Riesling fan, but this one tastes nice. A gift from a friend whom I supply with my CD doubles.
  5. Sexiest album covers

  6. Harold Nicholas and his orchestra 1959--personnel?

    The Lord Disco has no personnel. I'm afraid there was none listed on the original cover, although I can't find a pic of that issue. It could be it was a compilation of tracks issued on singles and EPs, like this one: Two of these tracks were on a 45 with Jimmy Walter's Orchestra: https://www.discogs.com/Harold-Nicholas-Accompanied-By-Jimmy-Walter-Et-Son-Orchestre-St-Louis-Blues-That-Old-Black-Magic/release/15407452
  7. Some of John Klemmer's ABC and Elektra albums? Smooth with intensity.
  8. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Excellent recording, great performance concept, very good booklet notes. The best recording of these pieces so far.

    New arrival today. A highly individual sounding original 17th century Italian harpsichor.

  11. I have been compiling serious discographies with the BRIAN database for several years now, but at the time I do not have the time nor the funds for putting up a proper website of my own - don't ask me why. Since I regularly donate to this forum and consider it an appropriate place to poublish such information, I decided to make them available here. I'm sure they will find interest. The html format of these discographical reports works fine here. I will edit the posts as soon as I have an update. Feel free to post any questions or omissions, but please wait until all parts are posted of thge individual discographies. Sources for these data are many: my own record collection; discographical data available on the web, like the Tom Lord Jazz Discography, discogs, or allmusic; printed label discographies like those compiled by Michael Ruppli; and, most importantly, information from musicians, members of this forum and other collectors the world over. I seriously recommend using BRIAN to anybody wishing to compile a discography - it forces you to do meticulous research and look for all information available to identify a paricular track. But. most importantly, listen to the music carefully - this alone made me discover many obvious errors like mistitled tracks or instrument attributions. Feel free to post any questions. Thanks for your attention. All these discographies are about the musical legacy of musicicians that are important to me. They now will be viewable online on the jazzdiscographies website and be omitted here - updates are easier there.
