Los Angeles Jazz Institute (LAJI) CDs

15 posts in this topic

 

I am looking for LAJI-01 "Jazz A La Lighthouse" and LAJI-02 "West Coast Rarities".

I will pay $75 for the 2 CDs. Must be originals with all front and back matter.

Please PM me.

I'm planning on going to Amoeba in the next week or so for my birthday. I'll keep an eye out for them

I you happen to have any idea what the covers look like it would help. I search the "Various Artists" section every time I go to Amoeba but have no clue what I'm looking for.

Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars' "Modern Jazz a la Lighthouse" (LAJI-01) looks like this:

Here's a tiny picture of the cover to Howard Rumsey's "West Coast Rarities":

It looks like you can still get the West Coast Rarities CD if you become a member of LAJI ($50).  They no longer show that particular Rumsey/Lighthouse All-Stars disc as being available, though. 

L.A. Jazz Institute membership

I continue to look while I’m out but no success yet.

From the LJI website, it looks like they've issued 10 CDs but only four of them are available. The $50 membership sounds like a good idea.  

Please let us know how you make out.

Thanks for the leads everyone, but I'm only searching them on behalf of Stonewall. Since I'm in Los Angeles I thought the opportunity of finding them used local would be greater.

I hope you find them.

LAJI issued 300 copies of each. Unfortunately, a number of the "Modern Jazz a la Lighthouse" were defective and did not play through.  Consequently, that one will be much harder to find in playable shape.
