  1. Well, no. The last five sets before the Black and White all went beyond the late 50s. The Desmond was from the mid-70s, The Tristano went up to 1970, the Armstrong to '66, and so on. gregmo
  2. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    Ditto. Now it has to make its way out here to the Best Coast! gregmo
  3. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I still have all those Spotlite LPs, even though I long ago replaced them with the Complete Savoy and Dial Recordings box. It was a considerable point of pride for me back then when I managed to get hold of those LPs. And the music was--and is--so very fine! gregmo
  4. More on Pujol from Jazzwax

    If you type "Keynote Box" in the search box you'll find a couple of discussions of it. gregmo

    Yes, it was, and you're probably right, but hope springs eternal! Thanks for the response. gregmo
  6. What Are You Watching

    I liked the first two episodes well enough to stick with this one. gregmo

    I'm bumping this one in search of some info. I recently bought (off a discount bin) Basie's "LET'S GO TO TOWN" on Sounds of Yesteryear. It gives no personnel and no recording dates. Some sites claim the four sequential shows (numbered 237, 238, 239, and 240) are from 1957. Lord lists the first six (of 22) tracks as "poss. 1962" and gives one personnel, then lists other tracks from three different shows as "poss. 1960." I don't think it's '57. Joe Williams is on hand for all four 15-minute shows and is constantly referred to as "one of our graduates" by Basie, so he was just guesting. And it can't be from two different years if the shows are sequential. Does anyone out there have accurate info for this one? The sound is very good, and there's some especially nice Williams on the disc. gregmo

    Ditto. I love this goofy series!
  9. RIP, Ray Liotta

    Me too, regardless of how it's spelled! gregmo
  10. What Are You Watching

    I agree. I think it's the most "Trek" of the recent CBS shows. gregmo
  11. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    Yes, but who knows how it will all come out in the wash? We'll see. I do note that my card has been billed, which could mean the set will soon be on its way! gregmo
