  1. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    I've been pleasantly surprised. I knew so little about Herman that I didn't know I was going to hear some Ben Webster, Budd Johnson and Johnny Hodges on these cds.
  2. Lee Morgan Film

    To confuse the issue even more: whenever I noticed references to Helen Morgan I thought of the torch singer from the '30s.
  3. I find the opposite. As I get older 5 years goes by in a flash. To crib from Douglas Adams: "Everything is recent since The Beatles Broke Up."
  4. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    And you can download it at Amazon. BTW I notice that some concerts by the lost quintet were recorded by ORTF so Sony could probably get tapes. The Lost Quintet would make a great Bootleg Vol 7.
  5. Now reading...

    Probably the 3rd or 4th time I've read The Big Sleep but this is really good. Every facing page is reserved for annotations some of which are mini essays, almost all are interesting. Maybe it will even explain who killed Owen Taylor.
  6. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    I got an e-mail saying my Herman set had shipped. BTW Your Dad's in for a treat.
  7. IIRC he bought the Lionel train company.
  8. Me too. Probably last photo I'll ever buy but I had to have it. Also Leonard's Dexter and Francis Wolfe Trane. (2 of them). One by unknown photographer of Miles and one director Paul Brickman took of Bill Evans.
  9. I'm really enjoying this-- though there are too many "novelty" pieces on the first disc for me. It gets better and better as it goes along. The sides with Dexter Gordon are his first as a leader and I'm struck by how Lestorian he is here.
  10. I can't believe this is still available. The two Basie discs are must-haves.
  11. Upping this because IO'm still curious and can't find anything on Google. Could someone point out for me (a layman) examples of Oscar Moore employing flatted Fifths?

  13. Paul Bley's Daughter dies in car crash

    me too, but I avoid the 154 whenever possible even if it takes me a bit longer.
  14. There's a lot more to this but it might get political
  15. Bunny Berigan's RCA Recordings on CD?

    IIRC they often contained cuts missing from the companion single cd issues.
