Thanks, Bev, for bringing this one to my attention, though a new formula/syndrome is emerging:

Stitt + Fresh Sound = pain in the wallet :unsure:

Bill, Did you spot that Fresh Sound have issued Stitt's Blows the Blues and The Hard Swing coupled on one cd. Ordered yesterday.

How do these Fresh Sounds sound? I've been put off to date by the 'flat' sound of some of their earlier releases.

Presumably a lot depends on the source. The last couple of Fresh Sound Stitt's I bought were quite acceptable.

Buddy DeFranco -- "1949 - 1952 Studio Performances" (chronological classics)

51Co8n6KJOL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

I like snagging some of these Chrono Classics when they're offered at a reasonable price, as this one was ($9 and change, new).

Just got a few Chronogical Classics in the mail:

Mildred Bailey 1938

Gene Krupa 1940, V3, and 1945

Benny Goodman 1941-1942

Charlie Ventura, 1951-1953 and 1946-1947

Bunny Berigan 1935-1936

Charlie Barnet 1940, V2

Count Basie 1946-1947

Cozy Cole 1944

Red Nichols 1928-1929

I kick myself for putting off buying this series back when Alldirect.com existed and had them for reasonable prices, but even so, I got these off of Amazon marketplace for about $10 including shipping. About half of them were shrink-wrapped. I don't know why certain titles are so much cheaper than others, but I'll take 'em.

That's nice to hear, Paul! I thought I'd discovered this one alone! The only other Ted Brown I have is on Tristano/Marsh, Intuition. I'd be pleased to hear any of your Ted Brown recommendations.

All Ted Brown's sessions are excellent IMO - can't go wrong, pity he's only been recorded so sparingly.

Thanks for posting that link. I haven't been around here as long as some of you guys, so I hadn't seen that thread, but I'm glad I did, just for Jim's post #21. That was brilliant.

They are days I feel like a dork buying and collecting all this music and they are other days I feel cool for doing it, it's one those days I felt that picking up this stuff was the most uplifting thing I did this week and I have the coolest hobby in the world.
