Wow, the sound clips of that McDermott sound great! I should have posted here first because now I need to put in another order  8)

Yeah. but I was hoping there'd be a sample of the tracks with the band.  He's a really good pianist.

Just ordered from the Louisiana Music Factory:

Charlie Halloran & The Quality 6 - (self-titled album)
Just opened up the shrink wrap on this and discovered the liner note says "Recorded in my living room." Now that's an indie production.

I recently bought a number of those cheap boxsets of multiple albums by some of my favorite jazz musicians:

Paul Chambers



Harry "Sweets" Edison



Ben Webster



Jelly Roll Morton



Sidney Bechet



Count Basie



James P. Johnson



Teddy Wilson



Milt Jackson



Mary Lou Williams



And one New Orleans compilation of bands from the '20s



These are incredibly cheap, and focus on the prime years for each artist.

I have been enjoying the 1956-1959 Red Garland collection on this same label (I think--they're very cheap in any case!). Check that one out if you like him: 8 LPs on 4 CDs for $14. I will get the other ones eventually, but I like to take enough time to appreciate each one before buying more.

I am looking at getting the Johnny Griffin Riverside Collection 1958-1962 next. I knew virtually nothing about him until recently hearing some very nice tracks on KCSM.

Love Red Garland, and will check out his collection.  That Johnny Griffin set must be excellent sine that is his prime period.  Great player, and usually backed up with monster bands.

That 1920s New Orleans set looks tasty. I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on the selections in there.

Good one (but that can be said for any Ellington recording).   ;)

These cheap boxed sets are the shite.

Just received this Paul Desmond set--unfortunately does not have Happy to be Unhappy, but that is a good candidate for a special vinyl purchase.



And also this Johnny Griffin (as mentioned above):



And the Dark Tree by Horace Tapscott:



And this delightful one by Eddie Daniels.

Great stuff, Valkyrie! I'm unfamiliar with the Daniels album but I love The Dark Tree and I have two or three of the individual releases from those Desmond and Griffin boxes. To use an old phrase from around these parts: pounds the table!

Hi Alek,

Thanks. I only know one of the pieces on the Daniels CD (haven't even FLAC-ed it yet), from listening to KCSM 99.1 ("The Bay Areas Jazz Station", San Francisco). Probably about half or more of the jazz on my wish list is from listening to that station, especially the show The Jazz Oasis, which airs M-Sa 6-9 Pacific Time. Or you can stream it any time. The theme of the show is relaxing after a day a work, and during your commute home. They play a great mix of things--all relaxing, but not "soft jazz"/musak like Kenny G or anything like that.

My wife and I have been members for years: https://kcsm.org
