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.

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.

Enjoyed visit to Springfield years back. Lincoln museum and other sites can fill a couple days. That Recycled records shop adds to reason to return.
WUCF, Orlando again this morning.
Yeah there was another alto player in the band named John Jackson who used to solo also.
