  • Interests I'm a retired postal administrator. Loved jazz since my teenage years. I'm particularly interested in 50s/60s hard bop, Miles Davis, Gerry Mulligan, in fact I like most thing from that period. I'm partial to a bit of free jazz too as long as it's not too noisy. Also I've been a big David Murray fan ever since his first album in 1976. Outside of jazz I enjoy a bit of fishing when the weather's nice and can spend a lot of time watching movies (mostly dvds these days rather than the cinema.<br /><br />

  4. From the illustrations I have a second edition mono. I'm surprised as I got mine as soon as it became available in the UK. Was the first edition very limited and didn't make it over here?

    I'm with Gheorghe here. I don't know who some of these people are. But where else would I find out about musicians such as Arthur Blythe and Alphonse Mouzon for example..Maybe we can keep the RIPs for musicians.
