  1. I am looking for Pacific Jazz / World Pacific catalogues to fill some gaps in my collection. Specifically, the years 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, and 1963. Scans would be great, willing to share if anyone is looking for same. Jim
  2. Here is the url: https://archive.org/search.php?query=The+Record+Changer Jim
  3. Internet Archive also has The Record Changer. If you enjoy what IA is providing, chip in to help. Jim
  4. I wrote about the Bill Perkins / John Lewis alternates several years ago. https://jazzresearch.com/grand-encounter-the-alternate-takes/ Scroll to the last portion of the post for the alternates tales. Jim
  5. Yes indeed! Ralph Swickard gave me a copy of his Milhaud in Midi where he transcribed all 15 pieces. I plan to listen again this morning. Thanks for the reminder.
  6. One of my pet projects when I was working at UCI was a www presentation on Darius Milhaud. Elizabeth and Elliott Hurwitt had published an appraisal of Milhaud's works on CD in two editions of the Schwann catalogue. I contacted the Hurwitts and gained their endorsement to present their work on the web. Earlier this year I contacted Steve Albin who handles all of my internet things to request that he transfer the Milhaud presentation to a new domain name. It had been captured by the Wayback Machine and Steve did a wonderful job of bringing it to a new life. Many of things that I had planned back in the 1990s are now being realized on the site. If you are a Milhaud fan please check it out. https://dariusmilhaud.org/
  7. My ongoing examination of Los Angeles jazz clubs currently focuses on the space at 6315 Hollywood Boulevard that began life as Sardi's. The current blog is the fifth in this series with a look at 1954 and the burgeoning jazz concert activity of Gene Norman and the Granz brothers. https://jazzresearch.com/zardis-1954/ Jim
  8. I remember Richard William's account in Granta 69, In Search of a Long Lost Trumpeter. Did research for Sunenblick's reissue. Jim
  9. Boyd Raeburn fans will recognize the title of my latest blog, "Yerxa," named in honor of Ted Yerxa who wrote the Lamplighter columns in Hollywood in the 1940s and had a brief fling at producing records, most notably, Kay Starr. My piece fills in some of the blanks. https://jazzresearch.com/yerxa/ Jim
  10. I pitched the idea of a commemorative CD set to Jordi Pujol last year. Nick Rossi wrote the liner notes for the booklet, ten chapters that chronicle the arc of Garrison's career in the 80 page illustrated booklet. Nick and I are very proud of the finished product. https://www.freshsoundrecords.com/arv-garrison-albums/53984-wizard-of-the-six-string-classic-and-rare-recordings-1945-1948-3-cd-box-set.html Jim

  12. I have taken a departure from my 1950s jazz club research to post some variety to my blog. Recent posts include: Teddy Charles / Dave Brubeck / Chet Baker https://jazzresearch.com/teddy-charles-dave-brubeck-chet-baker/ Hampton Hawes https://jazzresearch.com/hampton-hawes-memorial-by-pete-welding/ Jack Wilson https://jazzresearch.com/jack-wilson/ Shelly's Manne Hole https://jazzresearch.com/shellys-manne-hole-fifth-anniversary/ Jim
  13. I have been busy adding additional hyperlinks for music from Frankly Jazz from my Soundcloud account. Recent research has also updated the dates when shows were broadcast. Here is the link for the post: https://jazzresearch.com/frankly-jazz/
  14. I will check, but suspect it is PDT, California time.
