    Mingus hit Jimmy Knepper in the face. He lost teeth because of that and could’nt play for a considerable time. Knepper sued Mingus who said in his defence that it was part of his act. I don’t remember what the outcome of the case was. It is in Brian Priestley’s Mingus biography.
  3. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Today Ajax won the Dutch FA cup. Beating Willem II 4-0. No time to celibrate. Wednesday they got to beat Tottenham for a place in the Champions League final.
  4. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Tottenham Hotspur - Ajax 0-1. Not a brillant match but a win is beter than a loss. Ajax has a busy agenda for the rest of the season. Sunday Dutch FA cup final vs. Willem II. Wednesday the return against Tottenham. Then 2 more league games (May 12th and 15th) for the champiionchip no mistakes allowed. And hopefully CL final June first in Madrid.
  5. I don't know. I don't have it (yet) There are no alternate's on it if that helps.
  6. There already has been a Bunny Berigan 7 CD set. This had the Sony and Universal held recordings. His Victor sessions would result in 5 Cd’s. What would be on 17 Cd’s?
  7. Last round for Savoy

    The set just arrived. No customs charge. Declared value $15 😀. But more important. The number on the book is 1673 of 5000. This is incredible low taking into account that it is from the last repressing batch. So 2000 maximum for the upcomming Woody Herman set may prove to be just right.
  8. JSP did a complete Fats Waller in 5 boxes a total of 21 CD’s
  9. Mosaics you’re still on the hunt for

    Yesterday at the Dr jazz meeting a Wageningen (NL) I bought the Flip Philips Charlie Ventura Verve set for €60,-. I was not on the hunt for this but was on my nice to have list. The Nat King Cole set went for €375,-
  10. The Dial is OOP again and the Bing Crosby set is now running low.
  11. Last round for Savoy

    I revered to this post.
  12. Last round for Savoy

    Just got a shipping notification for the Savoy set. If this means 10 CD’s of academic boredom bring it on. I’m a academic.😀
  13. He would certainly deserve a set. Don Byas would also desreve one but his recordings are spread over too many labels to be possible.
  14. The Eddie Condon/Bud Freeman set is OOP again.
