  1. Glad I saw him as often as I did. (I think I saw him at least once in every decade '60s-2010s.)
  2. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    Wow. I wish those photos came with sound.
  3. Gerald Wilson: "Dissonance in Blues" (1947)

    The United Artists film catalogue is owned by MGM. I'm not sure anything new is released under the UA banner.
  4. Happy Birthday Medjuk!

    Don't remind me! I have outlived nearly every jazz musician I admire. FortunatelyI I really admire Benny Carter. Thanks for the birthday wishes.
  5. Count Basie -Super Chief

    I'm away from my home so I can't check for sure but I think some of them are on the Mosaic Columbia set.
  6. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    Or the band with JJ Johnson
  7. Was this the first box set?

    How about Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music which I believe was released on 1952?
  8. John Williams-Marty Paich

    He played with Benny Carter at one point. IIRC He's the jazz piano player John Cassavetes replaces on the piano bench in the title sequence to "Staccato" . It's confusing because there was another piano player named John Williams.
  9. I saw the Capote stuff but what did he say about Bernard Herman?
  10. Unissued Coltrane

    Listening to this I was reminded of George Crater's comment "If I hear John Coltrane play My Favorite Things one more time I'm going to strangle Mary Martin."
  11. Who was George Crater?

    Listening to cds of Coltrane's '61 European tour I was reminded of George Crater's comment "If I hear John Coltrane play My Favorite Things one more time I'm going to strangle Mary Martin."
  12. Charlie Parker Boston 1952

    I can certainly see why hearing this for the first time might lead to some hyperbole. There may be Bird performances that equal this, but I can't think of any that top it. 1952 is a good year for Bird. Also I wonder if playing in the afternoon had an effect. BTW Both Symphony Sid and Bird refer to Benny Harris is as the author of Ornithology with no mention of Bird being co-author.
  13. Unissued Coltrane

    Amazon has a 4cd set entitled "So Many Things: The European Tour 1961." The 4 discs contain almost everything on the first 5 cds of the 7 disc set. It's only $22.
  14. Unissued Coltrane

    Does that set also contain the Copenhagen concert where they play Delilah? I came across it on Youtube when I clicked on the link for the Helsinki concert.
  15. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    Someday My Prince Will Come.
