  1. Your Favorite Album Covers

    Where's Joni Mitchell?
  2. I just read the following in an on-line essay about The Sound of Jazz: " In 1956, he recorded a blues with Giuffre at Music Inn, ." (The "he" being Pee Wee Russell.) Is this correct? I can find no reference to a recording of Giuffre at Music Inn except the record with the MJQ.
  3. Jimmy Giuffre and Pee Wee Russell at Music Inn?

    Yes, They're on both the supposed rehearsal record (I always thought it was a CBS tie-in recording session) and the tv show. So is he on the legitimate MJQ with Giuffre cd? It appears not on the Discogs credits.
  4. I still hear people use Miles's (really Kenny Dorham's?) Theme. The first one, recorded for Prestige.
  5. I Like it too. The only piece that's repeated really a lot is "Eat That Chicken" which is very short and which he uses as a theme to signal the end of a set. How can you you have too many "Eat That Chicken"s?
  6. David Raksin Tune

    Sorry, I'm confused. (I'm often confused.) Are you talking about The Bad and the Beautiful here?
  7. I saw 14. Art Farmer, Benny Golson, Monk, Sonny, Art Blakey, Milt Hinton, Lawrence Brown, Dizzy, Count Basie, Mary Lou, Horace Silver, Mingus, Gerry Mulligan and Willie the Lion.
  8. Happy Birthday Rooster Ties!

    Happy Birthday, young man. (Oh to be 50 again!)
  9. LF Dale label 10-inch LPs

    Surely these were bootlegs?!
  10. Ed Bickert, RIP

    I moved to Toronto in June of 1965 and presumed that your Saturday morning show as well established. Didn't realize that you had just begun. Listened to you till I left in June of 1980.
  11. I'd go for almost all of these but I doubt if they'd sell very well. BTW When you say the Victor "Bix and Lang/Venuti" sets is that mainly Whitman?
  12. Ed Bickert, RIP

    Is Coda on-line somewhere?
  13. Hal Blaine, RIP

    Billy Higgins? I think I read that Earl Palmer played on even more records.
  14. USC used to be known as the University of Spoiled Children. It's been scandal ridden for the last few years. I've always though a couple of the state schools along with Stanford were better.
  15. I have a faint memory of there once being a discussion here about Bird's longest recorded solo but I'm not finding it using search. Anyone remember it or know ho to find it?
  16. Now reading...

    As Lew Archer says: "It's all one case." https://smile.amazon.com/Its-All-One-Case-Illustrated/dp/1606998889/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1M9OJOI0KBWHI&keywords=it%27s+all+one+case&qid=1552468915&s=books&sprefix=It%27s+all+one+%2Caps%2C477&sr=1-1
  17. Now reading...

    MacDonald's last book. I read it because it's the one where it is most obvious that Santa Teresa is Santa Barbara. Good story but as far as I can see two murders in it are never actually solved. And I think that the epithet for every Lew Archer story should be Faulkner's "The past isn't dead. It isn't even past."
  18. Verve - The Bottomless Pit Of "Who Knew?"

    Wow! I gotta watch it someday. (I remember when it was new but never saw it. )
  19. Hal Blaine, RIP

    He also gives credit to Earl Palmer who had so too many studio gigs and he recommended Blaine for the ones he couldn't make. Palmer may have played on even more records than Blaine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_Palmer
  20. Hal Blaine, RIP

    IIRC (and I may not) in the documentary about the wrecking crew both Blaine and Carole Kaye say they started out wanting to be jazz musicians but couldn't make a living at it.
  21. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    That's sort of the Tesla model. (Though they only ask for a deposit.)
  22. Me too. Though I've gradually begun to find those missing tracks, at my age I'm worried death will find me before I find the rest of them. BTW Aren't there also a couple of tracks from a label called "Hits of the Week" or something like that?-- I'm travelling and away from my cds and reference books. I think at least some of those tracks are on the Naxos Duke series.
