Mostly a mix of Ellington's "The Duke" 40cd box set from History (the 1920's stuff is fantastic!), Denny Zeitlin Mosaic box (with Live at Trident thrwon in for good measure), Dylan's Mono recordings box set, and Davis's Cellar Door and On the Corner sessions. Yeah, I'm all over the shop, but having a good time!

The complete Chuck WIllis 1951-1957 - Okeh & Atlantic (JSP)

Is the Freddie Jackson who ran Chuck's band the same as Fred Jackson, who later worked with Lloyd Price, John Patton & Baby Face Willette?

http://en.wikipedia....n_(saxophonist) - This seems to indicate that he was.

Thank you, Paul.

Depends on how you feel about jazz flute. It's something close to my nightmare, right alongside those "and Four Flutes!" albums from the fifties. Even though it's Threadgill you can likely pass.

Flutistry is wonderful, in my opinion.

Thanks colin and kh. I'm a fan of jazz flute, Newton, Rivers, Kenyatta amongst others and Threadgill definitely so I think I may plug the gap

I got this because I had little Django and it was well priced. I'm not versed in Django discography. Turns out there are his earliest recordings plus a never released rare test acetate with three tracks. But what is a mistery to me is the mastering. I don't know if it has been properly mastered for this reissue or if it has been taken over from another release. the credits state the name of the engineer (Mathieu Bameulle) and the place but not the date. So that leads me to think it was not done purposely for this set. But La Source Mastering is, I think, a present day mastering studio.

Note that there's an error on Disc 1 of this box. Track 4 ("Messin' Around") is not the version by Cookie's Gingersnaps. Rather, it's the version by Jimmie Blythe and His Ragmuffins. Jimmie Noone is not the clarinetist.

and who recorded Hootin and Tootin, which I have, I thought as I saw this. But then I thought: but is he? Is it the same man? And on reading the Wikipedia link I see he is.
