  1. LF: Charlie Parker Complete Royal Roost Broadcasts

    So I have the official Savoy one you are linking to. The ones I'm seeing out there are: Complete Royal Roost Broadcasts and he Complete Royal Roost Live Recordings on Savoy Years Vol. 1-4 By the looks of these, they include the full broadcasts which is what I'm looking for. Anyone have these and/or can you confirm these are the complete broadcasts including the stuff the Savoy release cut out? Thanks
  2. Hi all - I'm looking to acquire the most comprehensive collection of Bird's Royal Roost Broadcasts. Before I scour on eBay and Discogs, I wanted to see if anyone here has a collection they're interested in selling. Thanks, BfB
  3. New Charles Tolliver

    Listened today and also agree. I found it a boring listen.
  4. LF: Mosaic Larry Young box set

    Have you tried Discogs?
  5. I recently purchased Vol. 1 & 2 on CD via Discogs and was successful in digitizing Vol. 1 but my CD reader will not do the same for Vol. 2. I like to drop these on my phone so I can listen on the go. Does anyone know where I can purchase a digital version of Vol. 2? I've searched and searched but these seem to be pretty obscure in terms of digital products. Thanks
  6. Love that lick! For Trane, "Moments Notice" is where I first really noticed it.
  7. Musicians - Post Your Music Here!

    I've been working on a Konitz solo on the "Indiana" changes - - my video has both solos before/after piano. A couple of flubs here and there but mostly accurate. Would love comments, critiques etc. Thank you to those who take the time to watch :-) BfB
  8. >>and Hank wasn't really all that great here<< I would love if someone could explain why this seems to be the overall sentiment w/ regard to this session. As a player and a very discerning listener, I'm not so sure I would agree. FWIW I've heard all of the false starts & alternate takes of this session and from what I hear, these guys were having a lot of fun in the studio and I think it shows in the performances they culled for this release.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    How is this not better known or widely discussed? Holy smokes this is a fantastic session
  10. Anyone on here check this album yet? I've been listening via the Tidal service - btw much better quality then Spotify - and I gotta say, this record is a nice surprise. I suppose it should come as no surprise that the interplay btw. these three is solid but they're particularly telepathic on these recordings. A learning moment for me was not being aware that these Swallow tunes seem to lean into standard chord progressions (is "Awful Coffee" on the changes of "All The Things You Are?") quite a bit. Scofield seems pretty adventurous on these tunes and to my ears, his lines are some of the most interesting I've heard in a long while. I suppose I started to feel a 'sameness' in some of his releases so dipped out for a few years. On this one, there are nice displays of long Konitz-esque lines with start/end points bleeding over bar lines and punctuating in unexpected places. Curious to know your thoughts.
  11. They are. I can confirm that these are breakouts of the individual sets from the infamous Trumpet Box. On that note, I'm pretty sure they are sealed. Anyway, just wanted to share as I know that one goes for stupid money on Discogs and Ebay.
  12. FWIW - the OTC metal box is going for $70 USD on the official Miles store site -
  13. Hi. I happened to see you bought the Hodes Mosaic in Portland recently. I live just under 30 minutes away. Any chance you recall the name of the shop? I should probably check out the p!ace. Hope you're enjoying the collection. Tom

  14. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    Picked this up for $40 sealed at a great little record shop in Portland Maine. So good!
