Flippin' Eck Boz, you're like my personal music guru! Last time it was the disc for my Mum from my son, now it's a mothers day special! I'll add some heat and wait for your next awesome find, thanks honey!;)

a mate - another fab find (_;)

Hmmm nice

jaaazzzzzzz!

Hot - and "Jazz Library" weekly on Saturday afternoons on Radio 3 gives you the ultimate guide for CDs to buy. It's on BBC iplayer. AND IS FREE!

This would make a great present for my dad, real jazz lover.

Anyone know what the sound quality/recording is like?

Cheers.

Will vary according to when the tracks were recorded. Disc 1 for instance will be quite scratchy, but remastered as far as possible. None of the tracks on any of the discs appear to be very recent.

I fear Jazz.

Ordered

Ordered, thanks to op!

Cool Man

Ordered. Many thanks.

Just slapped a jazz club youtube link on my facebook page, cos... y'know.

Fantastic bargain, many thanks.
Can you find a good price for 'Ethel the Aardvark Goes Quantity Surveying' perchance?


Awesome
