  • 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 />

  1. Shorty Rogers Mosaic At Last!

    True,but not really what I'm looking for. The reissues seem a bit of a mish-mash unless I've missed something.
  2. Pretty important stuff in my opinion. Is there anywhere else you can hear Mobley and Morgan developing their solos over several takes?
  3. Shorty Rogers Mosaic At Last!

    Good as the Atlantics are I'd like a nice collection of the RCA smaller groups.
  4. Discs 3 and 4. All classics or near classics
  5. Now on YouTube. Apologies if this has been posted previously
  6. Blue Note 45s - pressed by Plastylite?

    You don't see many of these in the UK Dmitry.
  7. Blue Note 45s - pressed by Plastylite?

    I only have two 45-1773 Lou Donaldson - The Truth/Goose Grease 45-1774 Lou Donaldson - Politely/Blues for JP Off subject I also have a "Stereo Little LP2" by the 3 Sounds, L4248 Vibrations. With it I have a sheet of title strips and a sheet of small illustrations of he original album cover. Presumably for juke box use.Disc has small centre hole and VanGelder in the dead vinyl and Division of Liberty Records on the label. A nice little curiosity. If there's any interest I can post an image.
