  1. link to stream of Edison Diamond Discs

    Chewy, Some Edison discs are available from the Discography of American Historical Recordings. Go here: https://adp.library.ucsb.edu/index.php/objects/search Select Edison from the drop down menu under label and hit the search button. Click on "audio online" near the top where it says: Show only discs with audio online This will give you a list of all their Edison discs for which audio is available. Next, find a disc that you want to hear (say Edison 2493) and click on the link. This will bring you to a page for Edison 2493. On that page, click on the matrix number link (3331 in this case). This will bring you to a page from which you can listen to or download the sound file. For this disc, you should get to this page: https://adp.library.ucsb.edu/index.php/matrix/detail/2000151057/3331-My_dream_of_dreams Happy listening (although much of what is on Edison is not of particular interest)! - Jon

  4. From Krin Gabbard's bio of Mingus: "By an extremely unfortunate coincidence, Knepper stopped by to see his old boss a few days before the Town Hall concert, and Mingus hired him on the spot to copy out parts. (Knepper had beautiful handwriting, and Mingus had actually paid him to copy out parts when he ws a member of the Jazz Workshop.). As Mingus was handing piles of music to Knepper and at least two other copyists, time continued to slip away. Knepper was not producing at the rate Mingus wanted, and when Charles also asked him to compose figures for the band to play behind soloists, he refused. In response, Mingus punched Knepper in the face with such force that he knocked out a tooth."
  5. The Richard Wyands was originally issued on Jazzcraft. It's been out before on CD, on Storyville. I have this: The 1998 issue has the same 9 tracks that are on the new issue. There's no additional Wyands on the recent Wyands/Lawson set.
  6. Isn't that on the Savoy box? That's from December 1938. Is this something else?
  7. Hi Ken,

    I should be able to help you out.

  8. Hi.  I've also been looking for this CD for several years, but I've been unable to navigate the Japanese sites where I've seen it pictured.  

    Could you be of any assistance in locating it?

  10. The box has shipped. Delivery expected tomorrow evening.
  11. Bob Porter has died

    Crap. I always looked forward to catching up with Bob at the record bash in NJ and when he passed through the Boston area. He'll be missed.

  14. Covid vaccination: poll

    Had Pfizer #1 a week ago at Fenway Park. It was well organized there. Unfortunately, it took 7.5 hours about a week and half before that to find a slot on line! Had a sore arm, some headaches, and fatigue.
  15. Enjoy! Does your copy have the Tristano 45 (Untitled Blues)? My copy still has the original sales receipt inside.
