Oh my God they tear it up on Actual Proof
Oh yes. There is a reason Spotify is #1 in subscribers.... at least I thought it was. I used it on trial three years ago. Loved the way I could play selections on my iPhone that was docked in an iPod Player, but CONTROL the player with my Android from across the room. Amazing technology in Spotify.
I may try it again. I have to decide on ONE service soon. I currently subscribe to Apple Music, Google Play Music and Amazon Prime Music Unlimited. That's ridiculous. I need to make up my mind on one.
Slacker I don't put in this mix. I have the radio subscription only for $25 a year and that's such a bargain for being able to listen to their Jazz and Hip Hop stations that I'll always keep that.
OK, now my curiosity is lit for Spotify. I'll see if I can get a week or month trial.
CJRT The Big Band Show
Nice one, Gannon. I believe there are 8 Tatum group masterpieces(?). I've had Vol 2 for a while and picked up Vol 1 a couple of days ago.
Always great to see the Elf posted here.
If you are ever in Springfield, Illinois, make a stop at Recycled Records. They have an excellent jazz section on the second floor, and the prices are very reasonable. That makes it worth it, because it's hotter than Hades in there in the summer.
Just picked this up at a local record show this weekend.
The Quintet of the French Hot Club Featuring Django Reinhardt - Dial Records 214 - 1951
VERY nice pick-ups my friend. Thanks for posting those. I wish I had known about this 5 years ago when I went to the Springfield area twice a year. I no longer get to Springfield, but will keep it in mind.
Cool. They all are such amazing recordings, Steve. I'm not sure how many of them I have. I was also just listening to the one with Roy Eldridge. The sessions with Hampton and Rich are also great.

Best Of The Gershwin Songbook
I’ve been reading Early Bird: The Life and Music of Charlie Parker by Chuck Haddix. I listened to this Jay McShann album today, it seems like a good companion piece to the book, the early years at least. Some amazing playing, of course. My only challenge is that I’m not always positive when it’s Parker soloing, sometimes yes, but others it’s more, hmmm, is that him? Good exercise in listening closely.
