    Billy, You've hit on many of the high points covered in the BBC doc link that I posted. I missed the American Masters, but I'm familiar with his legacy. I've got a copy of Gary Giddins' bio on Bing I'll get around to one of these days, but his legacy while not entirely forgotten, is dimming. Let us not forget, he and Louis sang early and often and since he was in Whiteman's band with the above mentioned Rhythm Boys, he knew and hung around with Bix Biderbeck and Teagarden. The guy knew his stuff.

    I don't get always to post at night and Fuzzywobbles recent dive into this reminded me that I'd not aired this since I picked up my new (to me) minty 2230b. It sounds brilliant and perfect for Saturday morning 'gettin' stuff done' tunes.

    So, I've only heard this on CD, never on vinyl. At my record store today the store owner recommended this "Complete Masters" from Impulse (Verve). Funny, this was an "impulse" buy. Most everyone knows more about Jazz than me but I'm learning. There are definitely mixed reviews over this release. Listening to it now and it sounds pretty darn nice. Others talked about noise in the quiet parts. To side 1 I am hearing a faint, tick, tick, tick during the quiet bass line but I see a mark so I'm gonna clean it and try again. The joys of buying new records.

    The Title Says ALL:
    I splurged on this 180gr French printing of this LP and it is paying off. I suppose I could've hunted around and bought a "pre-owned" copy, but frankly, this is crisp, new and I'm not ashamed....not one bit. I've read some reissues are crap, that they may very well be, but it figures the Europeans, (who like Jazz-A LOT), release great quality LPs. Plus, the local vinyl on Art Blakey is scarce and at unreasonable $$. Then again, it could be argued that this was high priced, but for me it was a Xmas present.

    I have this Coleman Hawkins record, a double LP, called "The Real Thing". It's a great record. The second disc is the complete recording session of "At Ease With Coleman Hawkins". But the first disc only has 3 of the 5 songs of the session he did with the Red Garland Trio, and 4 of the 7 he did with Ray Bryant and Kenny Burrell on the album called "Soul". So I'm listening to the cuts right now that aren't on the "Real Thing" album, as well as some other things with Hawk along the way.
