Some of you may know of this wonderful book:    50YearsAtTheVillageVanguard_Cover.jpg

it's already sold out on Resonance Records (the price to Europe was $135 !!!)  but I contacted Jazzmessengers in Barcelona and put them in touch with the authors and they managed to buy 6 copies at a reduced price and are offering them at 74.99 euros including postage!   I just ordered my copy so if anyone is interested I would suggest you act promptly.

I can't see this on their site, so I guess it's gone.

 Clunky -looks as though it is still in stock. Try a search by the book title.

You need to go to their Book section and scroll down the page; I was "talking" to Jorge of Jazz Messengers yesterday and it was still in stock then.

I ordered it from a third-party seller on Amazon.  It's been on my wish-list ever since it was announced, so thanks for the reminder.

I just received my one - only took 3 days from Spain - beautifully packed and really great service.  

I'll have a word with the authors again to see if we can get the PDF too.

They tried to deliver mine today but not around so it will be Wednesday when I get it. Pretty quick !

That would be beyond cool if the PDF was made available.

Mine arrived today from a seller in Illinois, along with a promotional bookmark that features the book on one side and last year's Resonance CD release on the other.  Can't wait to dig into this.

I emailed author Eric Allen (with whom I arranged this deal) about getting the PDF and here is his reply:-

Thanks for the note; I’m glad you are enjoying the book.   The last time we offered the PDF add-on by itself, we were charging $29 USD. We could offer that to you and the other people that have purchased through Jazz Messengers in Barcelona.   Please let me know if you would like to do that and I can send a PayPal invoice directly to you and anyone else who wants to purchase it. Once you pay it, I’ll send a link to download the PDF on Dropbox.

Thanks, Eric.

Hope this is ok for you all.   His email address is:-     ericallenjazz@mac.com

Ken.
