  2. Are there any box bargains currently available?

    Hi Guys I cannot find the Soul Note box set Mingus Big Band anywhere, any ideas. Vic
  3. Lars Gullin

    It's not all, I have 18 CD's under his name and about 5 or 6 others that is not under his name, the Dragon series alone is 11 CD's. BTW are any of you using the Cattrax filing system ?, unfortunetaly can't you buy it anymore. I have my whole collection recorded in it by it's other name Platearkivet, i have spend several hundred of hours doing it. Vic
  4. East Wind Reissue

    I have a list from CDJapan that says that on February the fourth will East Wind reissue in DSD Remastering more or less their whole catalog, many good ones in there, especially for me quite a few with Hank Jones (The Great Jazz Trio), they are pretty cheap 1000 Yen a piece. Vic.
  5. I dare hardly say what this thread is about

    I have The New York Contemporary Five in a remastered 64 bit from the original mastertape on the Storyville Label, you can find it on Amazon under Archie Shepp, it's still available. Vic
  6. I need some good Dexter Gordon Recommendations

    Like JimR says get them all, I have 90 of his CD's (not complete), many of the Steeplechase were broadcasts (there were a weekly one hour broadcast from Jazzhus Montmartre (in Copenhagen, Denmark) where Dex sometimes in the summer months had three month gigs. I would recommend you to try to find his tenorbattle (titled "The Chase") with Wardell Gray, the long version, almost 12 minutes, I think you can search under Wardell Gray, who was Dex's great friend and also a great tenorplayer to collect.. Nothing Dex have recorded compares to have heard him live during the sixties, he was something else. Vic
  7. Unknow Wardell Gray ?

    Thanks I have just checked, I have it all, but I was fooled by the recording date February 27, 1947. lol Vic

  9. Dick Berk, R.I.P.

    Sad News RIP Dick I have pleasent memories about him. I spend a lot of time with him and Herb Buschler when they were here in Copenhagen in the sixties, as part of Bill Barron's Quartet with Ted Curson, when they played in Jazzhus Montmartre. Dick was a very nice person (but a lousy poolplayer) and we had so much fun together. Vic
  10. LF: Jackie McLean Quartet, Quintet, Sextet Box Set

    I was lucky, have been hunting it for the last two years, and 2 weeks ago did I stumble over 1 copy of it on Amazon.uk, it was an Italian dealer who had one for 50£, I ordered it right away, should ariive any day now. Vic
  11. I have been searching all over the net for this one, it's very, very rare, but only found a few copies that are so expensive, that I can't afford it. I have a cd-r of it, but can't play it anymore, it have become damaged, and it is one of my absolute favorites and on my desert island list. Hope someone on the board can help me in some way, selling (at a reasonable price) or swapping or whatever. Vic

  14. Tubby Hayes

    Hi all I am looking for a very hard to find Tubby Hayes CD "200% Proof" on Master Mix, I have searched all over the net with no luck, are there somebody on the board that could help me ?. Vic
  15. Mosaic boxset in Europe ?

    Yes, Jazz Messengers carry Mosaic sets, I just bought the Turrentine from them, can't afford to buy them from Stanford, have to pay customs if I wanted to get them from the US. Can recommend Jazz Messengers, I have bought a lot from them, and they give great service. Vic
