  1. Any good starter compilations of Thelonious Monk? (on CD)

    I also like his Prestiges specifically, and there is a very good boxset of them all, containig even a session with Coleman Hawkins which was his first session for the label. Plus that boxset is a K2, meaning it has a very good sound. Very natural. To be recommended.
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    A nice bebop devoted package from the JiP collection. Now I am with the Don Byas/Tyree Glenn Orchestra. But there are also sections of the CD devoted to the Don Byas Reboppers, a Howard McGhee sextet and the James Moody quintet.
  3. I have that box and it was, I think, the first Mosaic I got. But it's a great set.
  4. Happy Birthday Michael Cuscuna - 70 Today!

    That's also true for me. But instead of ton that would be tons, if it wasn't that what you meant to say. He's all over my collection.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    A good compilation of his earlier work as leader or sideman. With Victor Feldman on vibes.
  6. Oh, I imagined something like this (more early nineties) when I saw Sub Pop as the label somewhere, but then I thought "no, maybe that's somebody else".
  7. Very good the Likes, but from when are they? Looks like the sixties.
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Frank Wess - Jazz for Playboys, Savoy. A nice one.
  9. I'd like this Louis Armstrong - Complete Hot 5's & 7's - Sony C4K63527 (long box) - $35 How much would the shipping to Europe be?
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I've had it wrapped for 10 or 15 years, but the other day I opened it. And it's very good. With Gerald Wiggnis on organ and Herb Ellis on guitar. Greasy blues!
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The 1987 edition, which I have as a cut out.
  12. Howard McGhee - Plays Music from "The Connection"

    Sounds like a good proposition for Freshsound and Co.
