  1. Every time I think this miserable year can't possibly get worse, it does.
  2. RIP Stanley Crouch

    Like him or hate him, he was deeply devoted to the music. Well, to the music he liked anyway. And he loved Bird and Duke. RIP. gregmo
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The Original Master Recording version:
  4. So did I. And I see we were both playing it today as well! gregmo
  5. Well, they're ALL out of print, so if you buy any of it, you're buying it used. I don't think any money any longer goes back to whichever label first issued it. I wasn't endorsing the Andorran stuff, by the way (DEEP breath Steve!), simply pointing out that Mosaic is disinclined to do sets that those labels have already done. Well, except for Classics. Mosaic has done a lot of things that Classics has issued. It would be kind of hard not to. gregmo
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Nothing like some new Monk to make the miseries of the smoke dissipate from my head (if not my lungs)
  7. Ella Fiitzgerald - The Lost Berlin Tapes

    Definitely in for this one! gregmo
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Disc 7, with Kenny Dorham on trumpet
  9. A lot of the Byas 40s stuff (both the American and European recordings) was issued on cd in Europe, by the Andorrans, I think. Mosaic has tended to shy away from reissuing material that has already been issued that way, even if it wasn't done all that well. That happened with the Hodges 60s Verve material that I talked about wanting Mosaic to do in this thread. It is too bad about Byas, because he is definitely one of the masters in need of some royal treatment. gregmo
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Fine work by the late Gary Peacock on this one. Actually, my copy is disc two of the Rustbox.
  11. Dame Diana Rigg, R.I.P.

    Ah, so many adolescent fantasies in my youth! Saw her live in London years ago with Rex Harrison in "Heartbreak House." A marvelous talent who will be much missed! gregmo
  12. Issues with Paypal

    The fee I got charged was from my credit card company, not Ebay, Paypal, or the seller. gregmo
  13. With few exceptions jazz clubs have never exactly enjoyed long lives. I would imagine that if some close, others will open. Maybe that's the optimist in me! gregmo
