  1. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    A friend (whose last name begins with "A") received his box this morning. Me? No shipping notice yet. Anyone else have anything to report?
  2. PM sent on Dave McKenna. Blues Up Piano Solo.
  3. I suggested a Bob Crosby box to Scott many years ago. It did not evoke much of a response at the time.
  4. Lawrence Brown

    A few more jump to mind: "Golden Cress" is superb. Slippery Horn Ducky Wucky
  5. Crown Records Question

    A bit of a mystery. If you look at the LP, the tunes other than "Lyons Busy" are credited to Bobby Correll. (who is also listed on the cover) It appears that he was (and still is) a pianist. Are you sure that Brubeck is on the rest of the album? The other two musicians shown on the cover (Frank Blake and Bob Kindle) may be pseudonyms. What is the instrumentation on the other sides? Perhaps Crown was trying to sell the album as a Brubeck item by including a single side by him.
  6. Wordle

    Well, the Wordle archive is gone. Here's the message displayed on the archive site: 👋 Thanks for playing! Thank you for playing the Wordle Archive, and for all your nice comments and feedback that helped make the site better. Sadly, the New York Times has requested that the Wordle Archive be taken down. However, you can still play the daily Wordle over on their official site.
  7. Jessica Williams, R.I.P.

    Damn! She was a great player. I managed to see her twice during some of her too infrequent trips to the east. RIP. You'll be missed.
  8. 1970s: a golden age for TV show theme songs?

    If you broaden the time period a bit, I would throw in The Avengers and Mannix.

  10. Wordle

    My guess is that they'll do the same thing with Wordle that they've done with the crossword puzzle and Spelling Bee. They'll make some available for free on a day by day basis but will move the archive/on-demand option behind their Diversions paywall.
  11. Don Wilson, RIP

    Oh, not this one: or this one:
  12. Don’t get your hopes up. Just got a “delayed” message from UPS. 🥺
  13. Is this really the first designed record cover?

    It’s fairly easy to find the image. Just search for “Alex Steinweiss.” He generally is credited with the idea of putting art, instead of plain covers, on 78 albums. This one appears to be his first effort.
  14. Stan Getz Must Be Turning Over In His Grave

    I had hoped that it was an early April Fool's joke. No such luck. There's an associated concert tour for those who want to suffer.
