A friend gave me this box set yesterday, and wow—so good! Quite a treasure trove of later Benny Goodman. I’ve been aware of the Yale Archive releases for many years, but had picked up only the one that covers big band recordings from 1957-1964. I’m just one disc into this collection and have already ordered its V. 6-10 followup:

Listening to the first disc of the second Music Masters Benny Goodman Yale archives box set, which includes a 1966 gig at the Rainbow Grill with Herbie Hancock filling in for Hank Jones—who knew?!?

Starting at disc 9, when Jimmie Blanton had arrived, right now I'm spinning disc 11. Let's see how far I will get.

One of my all-time favorite jazz box sets. I’ve listened all the way through three times, I think, since I purchased it all the way back in 1999. Wonderful booklet, too, though my copy has started to come apart over time.

A great box - as is the ‘Nucleus at the BBC’.

Yes, I'm happy with it. Purchased with practically zero foreknowledge, but have really enjoyed it and listened to the whole box through several times.

I opted for Nucleus's 6-CD Torrid Zone box on Esoteric (instead of the BBC set), and that was probably my favorite 2021 purchase. Would like to hear the BBC set, but doubt that I'll make the significant expenditure...

Now this baby  -


Never heard of this one. Looked at Discogs' track list and was struck by Julia Lee's session for Premier. But not "Lotus blossom". what happened there? Mercury forget to buy the master when they bought the other stuff?
