  1. Chambers himself writes about it in the introduction to the one volume edition of his book published by Da Capo Press. ( It's unfortunate that he's never been given the chance to issue a revised edition-- De Capo merely added this new introduction but made no changes to the original University of Toronto 2 volume edition. )
  2. I was given that cd by Forrest Westbrook's daughter who was responsible for its release.
  3. Does it touch on the debt the autobiography owes to Jack Chambers' biography of Miles? I got the impression that Miles/Troupe used it as a guide and every-so-often outright cribbed from it.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    IIRC it was originally on United Artists.
  5. Jazz recordings associated with Esquire Magazine

    I'm happy to send you mine if you don't mind waiting for cheap, and presumably slow, delivery. Sounds like you'd appreciate it more than I do. (I'll put it in an envelope and mail it. Given its size I think I can get away with that-- though I'm not sure.) DM me your snail mail address.
  6. Jazz recordings associated with Esquire Magazine

    You're right. Because it's literally deteriorating in my hands I only looked at a few pages. BTW Where is there a market for this? Maybe I can sell it before it completely disintegrates.
  7. Jazz recordings associated with Esquire Magazine

    Here's and example from 1944. Mainly reprints of earlier articles form the magazine but concentrating on what they consider "hot" jazz.
  8. Jazz recordings associated with Esquire Magazine

    I have 4 of "The Esquire Jazz Collection" including the above mentioned "Toward the Light". The others I have are: "Breakthrough", "The Voices of Soul", and "Crosstown Traffic" and they contain cuts from Bluenote or other EMI owned product with an explanation of the parallels between Bluenote and Esquire. (Basically they both started in the '30s.) Happy to send you a scan of the note if you like. I presume I got them for free. Don't know why else I'd have them.
  9. Now reading...

    Happy Bloomsday!
  10. Dance remix of A Love Supreme!!!??

    And here it is. (They played it again on KCRW. ) No but I tapped my foot.
  11. Essential Benny Goodman

    I'm not sure that there is much of that in the Savory Collection. As to the Goodman that's there, I'd like to see the release of at least the items with Charlie Christian, though IIRC there are no new titles.
  12. I had worked at Universal a few years before and lived relatively nearby. I remember the night of the fire worrying about what was stored there.
  13. Dance remix of A Love Supreme!!!??

    It wasn't either of these. I'll try to find out. (Not that it maters.)
  14. I just heard a dj on KCRW play a dance remix sampling At Love Supreme (including Trane's "vocal"). Can't find the name of the artist because although KCRW has a playlist on-line, the 20 minutes during which this was played is, for some reason, not posted. Is this sacrilegious or spreading the word?
