  1. West Coast Jazz Today (Atlas Label)

    The dj played a track off that album. I purchased that album many moons ago I believe on your recommendation, Chuck. I think it might have been one of Shelly's last sessions.
  2. I just finished listening to an excellent program on KSDS hosted by Ken Poston which featured a good number of releases/selections from the Japanese Atlas label. It was really great to hear some music I wasn't fully aware of. A lot of guys from the early days of the West Coast scene were featured heavily. I already own a few of these releases, most notably the Art Pepper Hollywood All Star Sessions. I talked to Ken over the phone and he said a lot of this stuff is hard to find or is OOP, so it was a real treat to here some of this rare music. A real education. I'm not certain if there was a dedicated thread to this label previously, so excuse me if I'm bringing up past discussions. I'm just curious what you guys think. Do you own and of these releases. Thoughts positive or negative would be appreciated. Thanks.

  4. Walter Becker of Steely Dan dies at 67

    I am really bummed to hear this. I love this band. Music that was always well done. In lieu of jazz profiles on wkcr in New York they are instead playing a tribute to Walter Becker till 7 p.m. tonight.
  5. Gulf Coasters, Be Safe!

    I've been listening to the live stream on News Radio 740(KTRH) out of Houston. They've been taking phone calls and giving live weather updates. Boy, I feel for the folks down that way. Sadly, it doesn't look to end soon. Some of the crazy things I'm hearing is that some people are out driving in this shit.
  6. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Disc 6 which features Johnny Hartman. Never been much a fan of jazz vocals, but Johnny is always an exception.
  7. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Discs 2, 4 and 5. The Clifford Jordan sessions are nice.
  8. Thanks for the tips fellas. I may grab the needle nose plyers myself since I experienced the same difficulties. I haven't even listened to disc 2 of the Beehive set because of the fear of snapping the disc. That's crazy.
