  1. Count Basie 1937 Savoy Ballroom broadasts- what radio station?

    Chris Sheridan in his Basie Bio-Discography indicates the source is a WOR-Mutual broadcast.
  2. This is a devastating read! One of the very worst event in music history!
  3. Essential Benny Goodman

    Those two 'The Benny Goodman Story' LPs came out on a single CD on the Spanish Essential Jazz Classics label à few years ago. Buck Clayton was fully creditéd.
  4. Hats off to Rafa!

    Rafa is the King of France! May he live long and reign some more years...
  5. I wish I had this signed photo.

    The photo was taken at the Club Saint Germain when the Messengers played there in late 1959. Heard them there in 1958 with Bobby Timmons on piano.
  6. I would say - very roughly - one out of four images appear in those books. I should add that the new book is way better. My copy is the 2014 édition from Flammarion France. Beautiful book with fine prints. Printed in Slovénie. Very well researched. Have enjoyed it numerous times since it came out. One minor complaint: There is no photo from the Cannonball/Miles 'Somethin' Else' session.
  7. Percy France Discography Help

    The Lord discography lists an Oliver Jackson LP on Black & Blue 'Oliver Jackson' présents Le Quartet' with Percy France, Leonard Gaskin and Jackson. Recorded in New York in September 1982, it says...
  8. Very sad to learn this. Chris was ann invaluable contributor to the Board! Hope he departed peacefully!
  9. Happy birthday king ubu!

    Joyeux anniversaire, Flurin!
  10. Heavy damage but the two towers still stand. The cathédral will be rebuilt!
  11. There is a huge fire now going on at Notre Dame cathédral. I live à few blocks from the place. Hope the fire will not spread too far. No victim reported yet. Hope the damage will not be too important.
  12. Milt Buckner & Jo Jones

    Had the Lion and the Tiger and the Drums LPs when they came out. Not looking to purchase the CD set of the first but will get the Drums one very soon. Great fan of Monsieur Jones here...Fascinating stuff and lots new material added on the CDS.
  13. I am old enough by now to have seen and heard about half of those Giants. Among those I did not, I am forever sorry to have missed Wilbur Ware, Luckey Roberts, Joe Thomas, Mary Lou Williams, Lester Young, Marian McFarland and so many others....
  14. Who do you think is the guy on the left?

    Wild guess... KD ?!?
