  1. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    My copy has the artwork taped to a jacket (loose - no glue) with the seeds record inside. Very odd.
  2. What 78 are you spinning right now ?

    I have the Savoy Be Bop 78 album but it is missing 945...
  3. Grace Kelly

    All this dance talk reminds me I have an acetate of Steve Condos with Chu Berry - trend chasers I guess....
  4. Great Finds

    Yep there is plenty of piano. https://twitter.com/russjazz/status/999828976821592069?s=21 if you want to hear a twitter size snip.

    Cool, thanks! If it works we'll get copies to you and Jeff Crompton. It's odd how difficult it is to find a home for something like this. I first thought to give then to the Jazz Museum but no response at all. But probably better to be with Tristano - she has the mission to keep it alive.

    If there is someone who could transfer them in the Minneapolis area I'd be happy to meet up. The discs are recorded right to the label and my player for 78's (Dual 1229) does not have that much arc and even if it did - I have no digital recording equipment or even a tape deck for that matter - but 9 turntables. There are a few samples on twitter where I recorded video, very dull to watch a speaker but worth it . My twitter is @russjazz if anyone cares to hear.

    Bought a bunch of acetates that are pretty cool. Tristano recordings and very early Lee Konitz & Lloyd Lifton. The Lennie records are: Lennie Tristano Quartet - with accordion (Leon Sash?), bass, guitar. 6 tunes on 4 discs. I found a new baby, night in Tunisia (2x), pick-up sticks, honeysuckle rose, one other tune. Pretty good fidelity. Lennie Tristano Trio - August 21, 1948. 3 tunes on one disc, Indiana, What is this thing called love, don't blame me. Noisy and faint - will need help. Chubby Jackson Quartet - Lennie, Bauer, drummer. September 1946. Happy Monster, Milton, (two of the accordion tunes are at the end of each side of this disc), Sherry, Wow. Massive hum on the 4 tunes - sounds like the cutter was not grounded - will need help. Lennie solo - one side - you can depend on me, just you - just me. There is one more 7" solo disc I put away for safekeeping and now can't find - but I will...I hope. Flip side of I found a new baby is the end of a Konitz / Lifton version and a solo version by Lee of in a sentimental mood. Flip side of the solo Lennie is I surrender dear by Konitz/Lifton band dated June 19, 1946. All the Lifton/Konitz tunes sound damn good. The rest of the Konitz/Lifton tunes are: Lover Man, How High the Moon (2sides), Poppity Pop, Memories of You, Out of Nowhere, My Blue Heaven, You Can Depend on Me, Don't Blame Me, Lullaby in Rhythm (2 sides), and last half of Man I Love (first half on the Flipside delaminated and lost in shipment to me). One disc of Lee singing with Bob Dunn - your driving me crazy, you are too beautiful, I'll remember April, embraceable you. Lots of cool stuff! Gonna pack and send to Carol Tristano who will hopefully make them available eventually. Kinda worried about how to safely send to Paris...
  8. Stuff You've Found Inside of Used LPs

    In a Bill Dixon record - naked pictures of the previous owner (I assume) - not pics anyone needed to see.
  9. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I went to see Defunkt in the Spring of '82 and they ended up as the opening act for an unannounced show by The Time and Prince. Bowie was not pleased. Only time I saw any of the bands involved.
  10. Things Written On Used LPs You've Picked Up

    Pablo record signed by Count Basie and Freddie Green for $3.50...
  11. Advice on Vinyl Targets Acquired

    The Marmarosa is Macgregor transcriptions and quite nice
  12. Saw one for $20 when I was not employed @25 years ago - passed in favor of food... Still wish I'd dieted instead.
