Jazz From America On Disques Vogue (Part. I)

A totally cool little package — one that features 20 different CDs, each done as a different tiny replica of a 10" LP that originally appeared on the Vogue Records label overseas! Vogue was well-known for recording important sessions by American jazzmen in Paris in the early 50s — but this package brings together work that was recorded in America by many of the same artists, and issued by Vogue in unique packages overseas — many of which are replicated here, along with bonus material too ! The set features 20 CDs, but includes 40 different albums — as each CD features tracks from original 10" album releases — with full details on tracks, personnel, and other information in the large booklet provided — a great complement to the records by artists who include Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, Red Norvo, Lester Young, Mahalia Jackson, Spirit Of Memphis Quartet, Wynonie Harris, Earl Bostic, Charlie Parker, Charlie Christian, Art Tatum, Erroll Garner, Sidney Bechet, Miles Davis, and others !

Simply marvelous! Thank you.

Thanks so much. Very appreciated

jm said...

I keep saying (almost as often as "I am not a robot") that you are my teacher about many musical things, and a teacher who gives gifts embedded in the teaching that are far better than the "gold stars" sometimes awarded to young students in American schools, exactly because your teaching is so deeply embedded in appreciating the reward itself. This particular set, since spatial diffusion is a process so profoundly a part of the history of jazz, is among your best gifts. NO, I can't say that -- it's one of very nearly countless best moments.

Very nice post!
Many thanks, Melanchthon.

Dear Mel,

Staggering, will I ever get through such a quality list,....phew.

Something for you if you may be interested and your 50's jazz guitar fans.
This is worth a read whilst some of the technical music theory stuff may not appeal to non musos.
