  1. Louis Armstrong (Harmony)

    You know, I think that may have been the first record by Satch I ever bought as well. And around the same time! Always loved that version of "Tiger Rag." gregmo
  2. Johnny Hodges Mosaics

    You're right, my mistake. Didn't have the bucks to double that one at the time! And like Ghost, I also regret Mosaic never did a post-'61 Hodges Verve set. All but two are available from "Phono" and "Solar," which I'm pretty sure are Andorran. To my knowledge, "Rippin' and Runnin'" and "Don't Sleep in the Subway" have never been released on cd by anybody. gregmo
  3. Busby Berkeley really was a genius, and his eye for how to use B&W--really silver--was absolutely dazzling! gregmo
  4. Johnny Hodges Mosaics

    I think that's part of it. A few sets were "reissued" on cd not long after they came out on LP. I got the Bechet Blue Note set that way. Bought it first on LP, then when the cd set came available, I got that and gave the LP set to a library, but that's the only time I ever did that. The first sets were all LP only--Monk, Art Pepper, Clifford Brown, Gerry Mulligan/Chet Baker, Tina Brooks, and Budde DeFranco/Sonny Clark. gregmo
  5. I think Scott "defaults" to the 30s and 40s. Fine by me. I love those sets! gregmo
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Can't get enough of the Basie sides on this set!
  7. looking for: 30's jazz recommendations

    Not sure I'd recommend old Decca Jazz Heritage LPs, Chewy. The "reprocessed for stereo" sound on those is awful even if the covers are kind of cool. gregmo
  8. Magisterial performance by the great Bette Davis
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Partly: It's a Lonehill CD (yeah, yeah, I know...) that reissues that album along side "Coup de Graas." gregmo
  10. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Agreed! I bugged them about it for years, but when the Andorrans did it, that screwed the pooch. And they haven't reissued the last two! gregmo
  11. Very cool. I enjoyed listening to a couple of "rags" on the UCSB site! gregmo
