  1. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    West Coast jazz is my main direction and the Contemporary label an important part of my collection. These are my Red Mitchell albums under his name as leader. But he is a very important musician in the complete West Coast scene and can be found on many Items.

    Ahh yes its excellent. John, have them all = the vinyls & the CD's. He is my favorite beside Shorty Rogers BB. In addition to the official CD above there has been a broadcast from that Matinee at Villa Berg on May 13, 2001 with some more tracks which do not appear on that CD. Have here a CD-.R copy with that program from my buddy in Berlin. .... and some time ago I made another CD-R for myself with material I recorded from radio HR after his visit in Frankfurt, Germany. This was recorded at the HR studio at radio Frankfurt.

    Soundwise the MPS recordings are the best IMO. Most "jazzy" trio is however for me ---> Peterson - Brown - Ellis and the earlier versions with Barney Kessell at JATP. ;-]] The late Bob Florence had a good cooperation with the german radio "Hessischer Rundfunk" in Frankfurt. Many years ago I did record some studio broadcast with Bob & some HR bigband recordings. I was in touch with Bob via email and had tried to get him a gig at the WDR . But the "big heads" there were not interested at that time. Really a loss which cannot be repaired.
