  1. Singer Kenny Rogers Has Died, Really

    The death of Kenny Rogers the country singer (81) is now confirmed on the NOS (dutch public broadcaster) site. Also on the site of the Guardian newspaper.
  2. Because some vendors might still have stock I write OOP. Meaning that Mosaic does not list it any longer.
  3. The recording in the NCY library can be heard here: https://www.wnyc.org/story/204512-america-in-swingtime-benny-goodman-sextet/ For the recordings at Rutgers you have to go there. They have: Opus local 802 (16-9-39), Stardust (30-9-39), Flying home (10-12-40), Wholly cats (25-12-40), Moppin'it up/A smooth one (1-5-41). This site has the most Charlie Christian info: http://www.soloflight.cc/
  4. The Louis Armstrong Decca set is now OOP.
  5. So am I. There is enough Goodman in the Savory collection for a Mosaic set. But if they would concentrate on the Sextet they might want to look to the 5 tracks held by the Rutgers collection and the Swingtime in springtime broadcast in the NY public library collection. Just dreaming out Loud.
  6. I had It with my Mildred Bailey set. Mosaic were able to replace it. This was years ago. I don’t remember wether I asked fO r just one box and payed for the postage or asked them to sent it with an other set. The way things are today I wouldn’t ask Mosaic to sent me a replacement Box unless it could be with an other set.
  7. Louis Armstrong JSP hot 5/hot 7 set disc 3. Had not listend to This in years. This music still baffels me in A positive way.
  8. Louis Armstrong 1935-1946 Decca set is now on last chance
  9. Woody Herman disc VII.
  10. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    Woody arrived today and no customs charges. Now playing Disc II Perdido with Ray Nance, Johnny Hodges and Juan Tizol guesting.
  11. Just finished disc I Woody Herman 1943-1954. Nice arrangements. I allways have to revise my opinion on Woody's clarinet playing. It's Always better than I remember. But not on par with Goodman or Shaw. Ben Webster's solos are great but to short. Best track: Crying sands.
  12. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    I splashed out and bought the 200 CD 'Mozart The New Complete edition' After some youth works and a lot of Variations this morning CD5 with piano sonata K332 by Brendel and now CD 6 with piano sonata's K330, K333 played by Bredel and k331 by Piemontesi truly delightful.
  13. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    Just got an email from Mosaic that the Mobley and Herman sets will ship in 3 to 4 weeks.
  14. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    Just got an email from Mosaic saying that the Mobley and Herman sets will ship in 3 to 4 weeks.
