  1. What music did you buy today?

    Great haul indeed! Kicking myself for not going this time... especially for CDs it's amazingly cheap (Randy Weston Select for 15 Euros last time...) and you get to see some pretty legendary records (at pretty steep prices though...) will certainly try to make it again in November...
  2. Stanley Turrentine - The look of love My only original Blue Note LP ... and it's better than one might expect...
  3. Apparently there will be Marte Röling Covers in the exhibition... (did she do anything beyond that amazing Fontana series?) ... will report back!
  4. so happy with these Philips covers!! Best thing is that I just discovered that the Philips Museum (which is not far from here) has a "Vinyl!!" exhibition until mid-July...
  5. Horace Tapscott Live at IUCC

    that is the reason I read somewhere (probably from Steve Isoardi)
  6. Rampart Street Paraders - Rampart and Vine Chu Berry and his Stompy Stevedores - CHU brought home on my way from work and they're both gorgeous, Eddie Miller on the first one I had never really heard up to now, I really like the covers, too... judging by their catalogue numbers (7080 and 7084) these two must have hit the market around the same time in 1955 but there's no indication that they're from the same collection...
  7. Record stores

    When I was in Philly a year ago, I went to a few stores, mostly those for used LPs within walking distance from the center... the one that I liked the most by a wide margin was Long in the Tooth, but also bought a few LPs near South Street where there are several shops (Repo Records is one of them but I forgot which ones were the best...)
  8. i see you're finally leaving the mid-twenties... only an advantage on this board and i hope also anywhere else in life herzlichen glueckwunsch zum geburtstag!

  10. what are you drinking right now?

    can't really compete with that, it's merely the usual Dutch Dubbel here...
  11. Thanks! Indeed, when I see it here on its home turf, it usually wouldn't cost me that much... distribution and vinyl prices for things from the past, in particular the 70s and 80s are sometimes counterintuitive... for instance, as a cd buyer I never would have suspected how well-represented Ira Sullivan is on relatively cheap LPs... or how well-distributed Waterland Records apparently was...
  12. I see this one a lot and am always tempted... what is it like? Myself, now playing Santo Pecora - Santo and his New Orleans Rhythm Kings finally, after more than twenty years of listening to jazz, I have my first serious New Orleans/Dixieland revival phase... forgot what exactly started it but over the past few weeks I've ordered books, read most of Jeffcrom's blog, the usual... luckily, a lot can be found on spotify... but still, when I saw an original Southland album from mid-50s New Orleans featuring Harry Shields on clarinet and Lester Bouchon on saxophone I just had to have it...
  13. guess it'll come home with me the next time I see it at that price nevertheless... what I can say though is that the Beaver Harris album with steel drums and Andrew White is my type of free jazz album ... the tenor playing by White is simply world class and the steel drums add exactly the amount of color I tend to miss in tenor/bass/drums bands Russell Garcia - I lead a charmed life in contrast, this album here could not quite live up to the promise of Mike Wofford on Fender Rhodes and Teddy Edwards on Tenor.... I do like how the cover photograph suggests that Garcia is playing saxophone on the album... but then you look once more and realize it's really just a necklace
  14. Beaver Harris - Beaver is my name
  15. My personal highlight in that transaction was answering the seller's question about who McKusick was entirely in Dutch... next up is another of today's acquisitions, a Dutch organ record from the 80s with Herbert Noord playing organ and Paul Weeden on guitar...
  16. had that Loevendie/Dulfer in my hand today and skipped.. hmmm.... one that I did buy is now playing...
  17. If someone at your company helped someone fake their college diploma before hiring them, legal matters might be different, no? One aspect of this scam was apparently coordinating better SAT results for students by finding someone who took the test on the student's behalf... That must be illegal...
  18. Had that Waits cover picture on my wall as a child, next to this one guess I could still sing along with most of the album (Waits, not Cohn)
  19. Hale Smith 1925-2009

    It's a funny picture, the cigar is really just there, omnipresent, doesn't look like anybody is smoking it... but it's indeed right where Hale Smith was at this particular moment in time
  20. damn, I paid 3 for the Braff... now listening to new acquisitions from the 8 Euro bin: Nick Travis - The Panic is On Pony Poindexter - Poindexter the cover of the Travis LP is in pretty bad shape though - but it's such a great album...
  21. Ruby Braff s/t the Dutch edition of "Braff!!", the album with Coleman Hawkins...
  22. Percy France w Bill Doggett

    here's one more track (Real Gone Mambo) that someone digitized from a 78, https://archive.org/details/78_real-gone-mambo_bill-doggett-trio-bill-doggett-percy-france-shep-shepherd-doggett-s_gbia0007626b
  23. Percy France w Bill Doggett

    Hot Doggett is apparently another (just googled a bit to get a sense of what you were asking), see the back cover of the French edition on discogs where he's mentioned (but I can't read the text)(this also includes a tune called "Percy Speaks").
  24. Don Reed, Rex Hollywood 27015

    This is the jubilee version jazztrain suggests but if the trumpeter is the most talented member of the Don Reed Combo, this must be something else (Chuck Peterson is probably the least known guy in the band). Don Reed the trombonist left some traces online as a Kenton sideman... and Ray Vasquez: wasn't that Anthony Ortega's cousin?
  25. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I'm a big fan! Played one of his nephew's albums yesterday evening, too
