  1. Joke of the Day

    What happens to duck when it flies upside down? It quacks up….
  2. Kenton Presents Mosaic

    Yes it really was. It was a store selling instruments and sheet music. The EP’s were sold at $1.98, 2.98, and $3.98. Over e few weeks I probably bought 30 or so. I sold most on eBay about 4 years ago along with another 40-50 I had picked through the years. I still have some that didn’t sell.
  3. Kenton Presents Mosaic

    I just brought up my copy of this set. Funny, mine does not have the hinged cover. Anyway, with snow falling this will be my morning listening. Weirdly, I had a good portion of this music on 2 and 3 disc 45 rpm EP sets that I bought as NOS from a record store in Providence in the late 70’s.
  4. A Jazz Guitar Christmas No. 2 - 1995

    Thanks for posting, and merry Christmas.
  5. Thanks for posting. I subscribed to Jazz just as they folded, sent a check but never received any magazines. I was working in a record store in1979-1980 and playing jazz pretty much the whole time I was on shift. Personally I was looking backwards, not forward and was playing and buying records of dates from the 40’s-60’s at that time for the most part. So I guess I wasn’t helping much.
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Benny Goodman, Benny’s Bop on Hep. Hearing these V-Disc performances is a thrill for this Wardell Gray fan.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Lucky Thompson, New York City, 1964-1965, Uptown. Listening to disc1, octet.
  8. Active Trombonists

    Plug for Alan Ferber.
  9. Western Union

    Rocky Boyd was another tenor with Miles for a cup of coffee.
  10. Mosaic Posters

    The posters are approximately 32x24 and were $40 when new. They were numbered. I have the Rollins and John Coltrane (cover of Blue Trane). The Rollins is from Sonny Rollins Vol 2.. The edition was for 3,000, I have #4 on the Coltrane and #3 on the Rollins. These were released along with the 1st or second Mosaic releases or thereabouts. I could afford $40. The archival prints that came later though….
  11. Bud Powell

    I agree with Lon re the 1953 Birdland recordings which have been released on vinyl and cd by a lot of different companies. Airshot fidelity but great playing. Stuff I continue to go back to.
  12. Um, sounds a little toot tooty. I think I once picked a cd by Daniel Smith but I didn’t enjoy it. Michael Rabinowitz sounds so much more at ease improvising on bassoon.
  13. Tom: The 7 inch disc is included in this reissue, in its original sleeve. I hadn't looked at it in a long time, let along play it.

  14. Jazz LPs For Sale

    Is the Mingus, Music Written For Monterrey…But Not Heard the 1984 reissue? If so, is the 7” single included?
  15. Naxos CDs set to rise to more-or-less full price

    It seems like a long time since I have seen any Naxos cd’s (other than at my house). I’m trying to remember what I paid for new Naxos jazz releases, I think it was under $8.00.
