I know it's a political website but you can skip the politics -Bergian will especially want to- and go directly to http://newstalgia.crooksandliars.com/ . Type "jazz" in the search box and you'll be offered some amazing stuff.

There were a couple of Ellington concerts that even the mavens on the Duke-Lym list serve hadn't heard. I don't know who runs this site but they sure know their music.

Incredible...

a quick search produced this gem:

Birdland 1952

A broadcast with a Pete Brown group and a Kai Winding allstar cast (with Dorham, McLean, Horace...) :)

Medjuck, you're The Best :tup

Thanks for that link, medjuck. Fascinating stuff. Looks like they're all at 64 kbps, and you can hear it too - wish it were at a higher bit rate.

Yeah, saw that 64kbs thing too - but hell, these are old air-checks mostly, so... great chance to listen to some rare stuff!

Complete set of the Jazztet at Newport

June 30, 1960

Art Farmer, Benny Golson, Bernard McKinney, Duke Pearson, Addison Farmer, Lex Humphries

It Ain't Necessarily So

The Portrait

Bean Bag

Killer Joe

Mox Nix

This is available for FLAC download from Wolfgang's Vault.

Looks like another worthwhile search is for "blues" as there are some airchecks of some early R&B, a Muddy Waters concert and others of interest.

I also notice the Messengers set with Golson and Timmons but I am guessing this was out on CD in the Swiss Radio Days series? Guess I'll need to check to make sure. Can never have enough Morgan, sayeth the Mogie Man.

Finally looked on AMG - the Swiss Radio Days releases were from the 1960 band with Shorter. I don't see any indication this has been issued officially but as it turns out a FLAC copy was posted almost three years ago on Dime. So no need for a 64 KB download. But if you don't do Dime or missed it, this is an excellent set.

The Swiss Radio Days series on the TCB label is legit and is offering some great music! Should be bought, not (illegally) downloaded!

Only noticing this now .. Ubu I never implied that the TCB releases shouldn't be bought if its possible to get it elsewhere. The Dime set isn't what they put out but anyone interested in the show that is on the crooks site should seek out what was available on Dime for much better sound.

Sorry Dan, misread your post... I had read your post above in a way that I read the "this" in "I don't see any indication this has been issued officially" as reference to the TCB disc. Things like this happens to non-natives, I'm afraid.
