They, too, stopped shipping internationally!

This is a very, very uncool development!

Well that doesn't mean that you shouldn't share with us the titles of the little goodies you must have discovered during your recent search, right? :g Fret not, we'll help you get a few items if you need 'em.

Also I just noticed my post from last June... I forgot about that, too. :crazy:

I know we have a separate box-set bargain thread, but upping this one to mention that Kathy Sloane's book about the Keystone Korner club, which comes with a CD of live performances from the club, is currently selling new for $6.90 + $3.99 shipping.  It's a $40 list price title, and an excellent volume about the club's history (full disclosure: I'm friends with editor Sascha Feinstein, who also selected the tracks for the CD--a daunting task, as you might well imagine):

Keystone Korner: Portrait of a Jazz Club

Thanks for the tip!  My copy arrived today, and it's a beautiful book!  Kathy Sloane is a very talented photographer.

Thanks for the heads up.  I ordered a "used" but unread copy from Amazon, and also stumbled (Amazon style - they suggested it) onto a similar book by Leo Sullivan about Birdland, which I also ordered.  The whole bill with shipping came to $16 for the two books, and I used rewards points from my Amazon credit card.  Looking forward to both!

With $8 left on an Amazon birthday gift card from last month, I also pulled the trigger on the $6.90 new copy which is now somewhere between Atlanta and Tampa. Thanks GoM.

It's a great book.  I got it for Christmas a few years ago. 👍
