  1. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Not right now but earlier today, Lester Young with Count Basie 1936-1940.
  2. Bob Gibson -- RIP

    More responsible than any other person for beating the Red Sox in ‘67. Our Cy Young winner, Jim Lonborg, just couldn’t match up with two days rest for game 7.
  3. Your audio equipment?

    Downstairs B & K 442EX Sonata with matching B & K Pro 10 preamp Sony DVP-S9000ES SACD/DVD player Dual CS 5000 tt ADS 1530 speakers Upstairs Musical Fidelity A5.5 integrated Lexicon RT 10 universal disc player Sony SS m7 speakers I’ve cycled through a fair number of older-ish speakers, the pair I probably miss the most are Altec Model 14’s. I also kind of miss a Sansui AU 517. The only piece above purchased new is the turntable. I do love a used deal.
  4. Tommy's Jazz On Hands offer - IAJRC Cd's

    Put me down for Lucky Thompson.
  5. A little embarrassing to admit, it’s easier for me to keep track of cd’s vs downloads. I get that it should be just as easy to keep files in a folder on a drive. I am digitally disorganized. I actually have quite a few downloads from several ROIO sites and blogs which generally incorporate at least 5 or 6 different naming conventions. I keep pretending I’ll organize it in slack time, but it’s almost 20 years of downloads, most from the 1st ten years or so were burned to cdr, hard drives having been not so large and quite a bit pricier the further back in time you go.
  6. Another cd, lp, almost no download user here. However, most of the cd’s I’m picking up are $1.99 at Savers, with 30% off on Tuesdays (senior discount, shocking I know). Even though I am just another guy here, I look around my basement and ask who am I kidding, I have more than I will realistically listen to. Still, Allen, if you list I will peruse with interest and probably buy some.
  7. Google Play Music - the end. Alternatives?

    Watching with interest.
  8. Peter Green; Gone At 73

    Tragic case, kind of obsessed with him.
  9. Liberty Ellman

    Check out his recordings with Stephan Crump’s Rosetta Trio. Crump with Ellman on acoustic guitar and Jamie Fox on electric guitar.
  10. Does Your Wife or Significant Other Love Jazz?

    My wife loves me, but she finds very little jazz tolerable.
  11. Fascinating but not truly one of a kind. I went to Colgate in the ‘70’s when an English professor, Dr. Blackmore, was nurturing a similar vinyl collection which numbered in excess of 20,000 then. Dr. Blackmore was very approachable and I had the chance to see his collection at his home on several occasions. He told me he never left town without at least a couple hundred dollars in his wallet in case he ran into records of interest. I just wish I knew more of what to ask about then. i can’t say exactly when but that collection was accepted by Colgate
  12. The bass clarinet

    The track with Shertzer on bass clarinet is High Society from April 3, 1939.
  13. I remember stores with a turntable and headphones by the register, but not listening stations as pictured.
  14. Summer songs

    Marc Johnson, Summer Running, from The Sound of Summer Running.
