  1. I am offering for sale or for trade the two massive box sets put out by Third Man Records, The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records, Vols. 1 & 2. Both are in like-new condition, with all pieces intact. See the links below for more information on each set: Volume 1: http://thirdmanstore.com/the-rise-and-fall-of-paramount-records-1917-1932-volume-1 Volume 2: http://thirdmanstore.com/the-rise-and-fall-of-paramount-records-volume-2 Both of these sets are stunning pieces of art. I highly recommend them. I'm selling both due to looming space & financial issues. I'm not setting a price, but rather asking for offers. If you are interested, please PM me. I will also consider some trade offers, principally Mosaic sets and also, as I indicated in another thread, The Complete Galaxy Recordings by Art Pepper. Anyway, thanks for looking.
  2. Hi, If anybody would be willing to sell their copy of Art Pepper's Galaxy Recordings, please PM me. Thanks! David
  3. It's not surprising. Mosaic has probably run its course in many ways. Not because they adhere to a physical format, but because the audience for jazz is getting older and older, and once they had gone through the Blue Note catalog they've mostly focused on stuff from the 1930s and 1940s, which must have a pretty small potential audience.
  4. I have for sale a like-new copy of the Mosaic Complete Savoy Bebop Sessions. Discs, booklet, and box are all in like-new condition. I will sell this for $130, shipping included for US deliveries. I will ship internationally at cost. Paypal only, PM if interested. Thanks! Item is sold. Thanks for looking!
  5. Hey, So I'm interested in picking up the huge Ellington Centennial Box Set. There are a few copies floating out there right now, but I thought I'd check here first to see if anyone here has a copy they are interested in trading or selling. Send me a PM if that is the case.
  6. I have the following box sets for sale. Paypal only, PM if interested. Prices include shipping to US. Will ship internationally at cost. The Veloso is still sealed, with minor shelf wear on the outer box; Montgomery and Parker are like new in terms of the discs...the Montgomery has moderate shelf wear on the outer sleeve. Charlie Parker -- The Complete Live Performances on Savoy $30 Charlie Parker -- Bird: The Complete Charlie Parker on Verve (This is a Euro version of the set) $50 Caetano Veloso -- 75-82 Quarenta Anos Caetanos $75 Bob Dylan -- The Cutting Edge (Six-Disc Deluxe Edition) $75
  7. Thanks! Yeah, I'm not yet 100 percent on Birth of Bebop. I agree that the stuff on Hawkins is out of proportion but I like the way the book is written. So I'm not sure on that one yet. I am sure on Notes and Tones and Blues People, both books that I think will provoke a lot of discussion, and I'm almost certainly going to assign the Feld book on Jazz in Accra and the Muller book on Sathima Bea Benjamin, because I want the course to be transnational and I think both of those books do a good job of illustrating those connections. I'm also thinking about Robin D.G. Kelley's book Africa Speaks, America Answers, although I think the Feld book might cover some of those themes better than Kelley does. I haven't read Erenberg or Stowe, I will definitely be checking them out.
  8. So next semester for the first time I am teaching an upper-level undergraduate course on the History of Jazz. In a way it is an offshoot of a course I currently offer on black music more generally, which has a strong focus on using music as a window into social, cultural, and political history. To supplement lecture material, I like assigning monographs, biographies, autobiographies, or even novels that explore themes related to the course and that are intended to provoke discussion and debate. I've been trying to put my course readings together and have identified some texts I want to assign, but there's a gap in material where I don't really have much on pre-1940s music. So if you guys have any suggestions on books to assign that would cover early jazz history, please leave them here. To get a sense, these are the texts I have identified as potential readings for the course so far (I won't use all of these necessarily but it's the list I'm working with right now): Leroi Jones -- Blues People Scott DeVeaux -- The Birth of Bebop Art Taylor -- Notes and Tones John Szwed -- Space is the Place Valerie Wilmer -- As Serious As Your Life Steven Feld -- Jazz Cosmopolitanism in Accra Carols Ann Muller -- Musical Echoes: South African Women Thinking in Jazz I've also considered using the George Lewis book on the AACM, but am worried it's too long and dry. I've also thought about Linda Dahl's book on Jazz Women. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have.
  9. If you have this, and are interested in trading or selling your copy, please send me a PM. Thanks!
  10. Hi, I'm looking for the Dexter Gordon Steeplechase box, The Complete Trio and Quartet Studio Recordings. Will consider offers for sale or trade. PM if you want to try to work something out. Thanks!
  11. Also looking for Paris recommendations, mainly for record stores. I will be there from 9/6 through 9/10. Haven't had time to do much online research, so any recommendations are very much welcome here. Thanks!
  12. For some reason the message didn't show up with my other PMs. I sent you a message back. Let me know if you didn't receive it.
  13. Up with final edits and price drops. Much of this stuff is going to EBay at the end of the week if it doesn't sell here, so if you are interested, send me a PM!
