Mosaic Records has a box set of Braxton's complete Arista recordings... didn't know if you knew about it. You can look it up on their web site ( It is a limited edition, but it was released fairly recently so there should still be plenty of copies available.

"Happy Together Live" by Arne Domnerus and Putte Wickman. Anyone help me out here with a burned copy? They're asking $185.00 for this CD now on Amazon!!

"Music of Harry Warren" by Dave McKenna with trio, and "Skyscrapers" with Warren Vache, Scott Hamilton and band, both on Concord label.
They were never made available on Concrod on CD, wish I knew an easy way to transfer my old 33 RPM records to CD without reinventing the wheel.

This is the 21st century and technology rules, okay? Of course there is a machine that will both play your LPs and transfer them to CD. It's been around for a while.

There is a good video on YouTube about how to convert LP-s to mp3 or wave files using the free Audacity software. It's a very user-friendly software.:

If anyone knows where to find an old Laszlo Gardony/Miroslav Vitous recording THE SECRET [LP VINYL] in CD format I'd really appreciate it. Amazon only has one used LP.

Well, here is a good example of price gouging when it comes to great, out-of-print CD-s.
I found the Gardony CD, "The Secret" - except it's $203 Look:

Back to square one...

I was the 2nd person to post on this thread back in 2007 that PURPLE by Miroslav Vitous was an album that fit the format here. Thanks to Spartacus and Nitya I have finally heard the whole thing. Would hope someone at Columbia would do something about releasing this again.

I'm looking for "The Party" by deceased trumpeter, Danny Moore. Anyone able to help out?

I do not believe a recording of Danny Moore "The Party" exists. This is from a live performance at Smoke in New York, and I think the only source is the YouTube video. I could not find the recording in any discography.

I was not familiar with this name until I looked him up. He was a New York studio musician and regular member of the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis orchestra. I also have him appearing on several recordings by Oliver Nelson, Quincy Jones, Buddy Rich and Al Grey.

Since I'd never heard of him, I looked up that video. I'd never previously seen one where the audio and video are so far out of sync. There's actually a delay of several seconds from the audio to the video. I've often wondered why this problem happens (if usually less severely.) Is it a defect of certain video recorders? Is it because they recorded the audio and video separately and tried to sync them later? Or are they using separate recorders but trying to sync them while recording by using time code?

I don't believe that such an animal exists or ever will. The LP does exist though and may well be a collector's item. I've seen a picture of the album cover which might be the best part of the album. I've also seen, and even heard a bit of, an LP of the "Ventures play the Classics" (or similar title.) Surf rock versions of "Fur Elise" and such. Hysterical!

Susan and guys, thanks for all the feedback. I believe that the recording does exist so I'll keep searching. It may turn up one day. I got into Danny's playing when I dropped into Smoke one evening for a Harold Maybern gig when he had Danny on trumpet and Eric Alexander on tenor. An exciting evening of music. Danny was on fire that night. It might even have been on that gig that the YouTube clip was shot.

Tenor guy Vince Wallace has an album or 2 NOT on CD (as yet).

Odd thing: Monk was not really a rock & roll fan BUT he was friendly/pals with ace rock & roll keyboard-er Terry Adams of NRBQ. I think Adams did the liner notes for a Monk collection on Columbia, too.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 5, 2012 4:39:48 PM PDT
Shemp ,

It might have been Terry Adams' influence but NRBQ did a cover of Sun Ra's Rocket # 9 on ( I think ) their first album. Just saying. The guys definitely had bit of a Jazz Jones in their musical DNA.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 8, 2012 3:31:09 PM PDT
OH YES, NRBQ mos def did have jazz leanings....Adams has at least one jazz disc out, btw.

Here's a name from the past: Brew Moore, a fine tenor fellow!
