  1. Charlie Daniels, R.I.P.

  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Music to nap to, but damn, is Hackett's trumpet gorgeous!
  3. Hi Steve! The sites I was referencing are the "official" government ones. I imagine private/commercial ones are fine. My daughter once had to tangle with government sites trying to get a visa renewed. Downright Orwellian--and she's fluent in French! Like I said, I love the country and the language and the people--have lived there a few times--but French bureaucracy definitely has its!! gregmo
  4. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Disc I. "Early Autumn" never disappoints, no matter how many times I hear it!
  5. My daughter lives and works in France, and I've been there many times. I love the country...but...I think that, per capita, it may have the most infuriating websites on the planet! gregmo
  6. Carl Reiner passes at age 98

    Trying to get out of the hardware store in "Mad Mad Mad Mad World": a classic! RIP gregmo
  7. I've been exploring Ella's post-Webb work for Decca, and I happened on this from Variety. Looks interesting: Ella Fitzgerald Documentary. I don't think I've seen it mentioned here as yet. gregmo
  8. Mosaic Records Brochures

    Interesting! Thanks for the response. I liked them because occasionally, they provided insights on what was going on at Mosaic (and because they once published a letter I'd written them asking about the process for leasing sets--remember when we used to write letters?!) gregmo
  9. Mosaic Records Brochures

    Purely as a matter of curiosity--understanding it's none of my business and you're free not to answer!--but I'm just wondering why do you want them? I mean, I have a bunch too, but that's largely because I'm just a hopeless packrat! gregmo
  10. Actually, those are my favorite tracks on the set. gregmo
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Trying to amass all of Ella's Decca material is a bit of a challenge. Good stuff here, though.
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Me neither. Discog shows it as a CD-R, and it's nowhere to be seen on Amazon. Boot?? gregmo
  13. Good to hear you're still hanging in there, Jack!! gregmo
  14. One of the greatest of all classic film comedies
  15. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    What beautiful tone he had. Good album!! gregmo
  16. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Ah, but what a lovely and delightful trail it is!! gregmo
  17. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    I'm just finishing up doing that. I've been at it off and on for a year. One LP in Volume 3 left! gregmo
  18. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Dizzy's solo on "The Champ" is my all-time favorite. Nobody, but nobody, could soar over a big band like Dizzy. gregmo
  19. Sonny never gives a bad interview. Thanks for posting!
