Jim Hall was such a great player! Loved his style.
One of the greatest jazz albums of all time!
L.A Four - Just Friends - XRCD
Found this in a thrift store in St. Louis. Grant Green is from St. Louis...?
One of my beloved late father's favourite records.
"Feeling Is Believing"
1970; Musikproduktionen Schwarzwald (MPS)
Not sure where GG is from, but that's just a bonus purchase. Did the store even know it was signed? or did you just skate out the front door all innocent?
The Solsonics - Jazz In The Present Tense -
Ducked out at lunch today to pick up up few new records. I'm psyched—I've had my eye out for for this one for a while now...
Note: Not my images btw; my collection is (partially) logged in at Discogs, and unless it's a new version that they don't have, I'm generally too busy (lazy?) to take my own pics . But kudos to all of you who do...
Green is from St. Louis and is buried there. I found it at goodwill just outside the city limits. I noticed some writing but it was in pretty mint shape so I didn't look any closer until I got home. Then I noticed what was written. Either way was a bargain, speculating on the signature is just a bonus. BTW, speaking of speculation I was trying to figure out who Mr Burton might be. Didn't Gary Burton have a famous song called Dirge? Maybe that's what is written in parenthesis? Doubt I will ever know for sure but fun to think on.
Burton is still around, send a pic and ask him.
FOR HAMP, RED, BAGS, AND CAL
Seems like there's got to be someone who could authenticate that signature. Wish I knew who to tell you but it'd be worth investigating.
That adds a huge coolness factor. Grant was a brilliant player but to have his signature on a record cover?!!! Way cool!
Charles Mingus Jazz Workshop - Stormy Weather
Let Yourself Go
It's really odd, but I've had that happen twice now -- buying a used jazz CD, and noticing later that it's been signed by the artist. One of them was only about two years old at the time. It makes you wonder who goes to the trouble to buy someone's CD at a show and get it signed and then gets rid of it in a few years.
Elmo Hope Quintet: Trio And Quintet
Stan Getz In Warsaw
Another find from today. Black and light blue Liberty/ UA Inc. label...
