  2. Lee Konitz R.I.P.

    A true giant!! Thanks Lee for the music you gave us.
  3. Joe Henderson

    I saw him perform probably about a dozen times and have read some articles and interviews and yet he seems among the most enigmatic personalities of the jazz musicicans whose music I have loved. In performance he never addressed the audience. I have little idea about what his personality was like and there are no books, etc. to help like you have with many of the jazz greats...wonder why. Did he like fast cars, boxing, women? I don't have a clue. Have I got this wrong?
  4. Mike Longo R.I.P. (COVID-19 victim)

    I saw Mike Longo several times on the bandstand .....very much enjoyed his playing. But one thing no one has mentioned so far ----are his instructional books ---which are great. In the 90s, when I was studying jazz and sax, my teacher suggested Mike's books: The Improvised Melodic Line, Theory and Musicianship, and Voicing and Voice Leading for the Contemporary Jazz Pianist. The first two come with accompanying recordings with Mike explaining or playing the concepts he has in the books. I found these to be extremely helpful. And as an aside, when I went to purchase these, I ended up in his apartment as he was selling them from his own place. He was gracious and kind, asked me about what I was trying to learn and even demonstrated a few concepts for me while I was making the purchase. What a great guy! As TMJ derailed my sax "career", I don't use these any more. If someone is interested in these, please let me know.
  5. I have one of these on an acoustic 12 string. Had not pulled it out for months....but the red light indicator just keeps going round and round when I turn it on. Is it most likely a battery issue or that I am so far from the note I need to tune it to?
  6. I would sell this entire collection for $30 delivered to a US address. If you play jazz or sax, there is something here for you. If not a sax player but play jazz can sell just those items or just the sax issues.
  7. I have a good collection of both Jazz Player and Saxophone Journal from the 1990s. These are filled with great interviews, transcriptions of jazz tunes, exercises to improve technique. Probably most impressive are the issues which give you a Masterclass from guys like Dave Liebman. These are unique and each issue comes with a playalong cd. These were originally priced at $9 to $10 per issue. I would sell separate issues for $7 delivered to a US address. Would sell the entire collection for $50 delivered to a US address. RCD-4 I attach a list of all of these issues.RCD-4
  8. FS: Bundy II Alto Sax

    I forgot to mention that the price above includes a hardshell case made by Bundy for the sax and a mouthpiece and ligature if you want them.
  9. If you are reading this you probably know that Bundy is made by Selmer and is considered a student model. I bought this in the early 1980s but I have kept it in great shape by having it regularly serviced by NY area repairman Bill Singer who is the best. So the pads have been changed several times and the horn has been lubed and cared for. I would say that the finish is in very good condition. Obviously the best would be if you live in the NYC metro area where I live you can try the horn for yourself...but willing to ship. I am asking $250.
  10. up once more for your consideration

  12. because the right hand is farther away from the bass notes on the piano!!!
  13. Limited edition 5 CD compilation of legendary Cleveland singer/songwriter, guitarist and rock legend, Peter Laughner who died in 1977. He also wrote rock criticism for Creem and other publications. He was a member of Pere Ubu and Rocket From the Tombs among other bands. Comes with a lavish hardcover book filled with photos, tribute articles by friends and fellow musicians and selected record reviews and rock criticism he wrote. After a rave review in the New York Times on August 8, 2019, entitled "The Lost Work of a Rock 'n' Roll Tragedy", the set sold 80% of the copies in one week. If not sold out now, it soon will be. Excellent condition. List price is $100 or more. I am selling it for $80 delivered to a US address.
  14. It seems like a lot of online complain about the sound. Is there a good sounding version or what is the best version?
  15. Price reduction to $70 delivered to a US address
  16. Up for consideration again. Would do a good deal if you take all the remaining volumes!
  17. João Gilberto RIP

    thanks Jazzbo for the helpful clarification!
  18. João Gilberto RIP

    Is Joao Gilberto on Elis and Tom? I was not aware of that. BTW- Gilberto's death is such a huge loss....what a contribution he made. An aside, at a memorial concert for Jobim in NYC, I saw Joao and Astrud perform together....I think it was the first time in decades. Wonderful concert.
  19. any interest? Let me know
  20. I would be willing to cut a better deal on these, particularly if you take them all.
  21. Best Jazz Clubs in New Orleans?
