    https://open.spotify.com/album/63yG9h4FSLRHo20YKMx7hq?si=pqpxJ9qhQT2fj32WLWjB7g&utm_source=copy-link Eastern Moods on Spotify. Label is "Records Reissue Company". Weird label that has mostly Armenian and Greek folk music in its catalog.
  2. BFT 212 is up

    It does not seem to me that there is any Ellington (8 sounds close, but I would not bet on it, and 10 definitely not).
  3. Don Joseph "One of a Kind" LP- worth getting?

    I ordered the LP on discogs after reading Jan Evensmo's solography here:http://www.jazzarcheology.com/don-joseph/ The entire album is also available on YouTube !
  4. Here's a record of the occasion: https://www.jazzmessengers.com/en/2462/nat-adderley/live-at-the-floating-jazz-festival-1994 Nat Adderley, cornet Vincent Herring, alto sax Rob Bargad, piano Walter Booker, bass Jimmy Cobb, drums I recognize Flip Phillips' signature on the top left. He was also there the previous year: https://www.discogs.com/release/9520470-Flip-Phillips-At-The-Helm-Live-At-The-1993-Floating-Jazz-Festival There's also Dick Hyman's.
  5. Bud Powell

  6. Bud Powell

    Am curious to know what role Ellington really had as a producer of "Bud Powell in Paris". Did either Powell or Ellington ever discuss this collaboration?
  7. Have been listening a lot to "Intuition" recently (among other) - the Marsh session. Very intetesting and "refreshing". I really look forward to the Mosaic set.
  8. Erroll Garner at Symphony Hall

    I was going to pre-order the CD (11$ seemed reasonable), then saw the shipping costs to France !
  9. The same thing happened with silent films, many of which were just discarded by the production companies.
  10. Jan Evensmo published a (short) solography on Bolton: http://www.jazzarcheology.com/dupree-bolton/
  11. I also find the music more fun to watch on YouTube than listening to it on my stereo. https://youtu.be/WpQjN7yQ_8c https://youtu.be/_Tu-qDHSSZo
  12. This compilation seems pointless. The selection is all well known stuff readily available in multiple anthologies. No real effort seems to have been taken in selecting tracks. It seems they just picked the top of the charts.
  13. I wish Mosaic had published a complete Billie Holiday set, covering the same years as the complete Columbia set, as I think Mosaic would have offered better sound quality.
  14. Mosaic website

    Here is a link to the web archive of the catalog with some discographies: http://web.archive.org/web/20060805160412/mosaicrecords.com/departments.asp?dept=5

    Some of them were, but the pages were no longer linked to the main web site.
