"what you wrote is: "since A, therefore B" but the B does not follow from the A. it's like saying: "since my car is red, i really like jazz". the second does not follow from the first. the guy doing the remastering doesn't do the docs. there may be a correlation, but it's hardly a proven strong one....

yes, they're expensive. that said: [...] since John did and Ted does remastering for all types of European labels you often get just as much documentation as on a Mosaic set your conclusion does not follow from your premise. What don't you understand about what I said? ...plus almost everything Mos...

It is expensive to produce quality remasters from the original masters that sit in the big companies' vaults. It is cheap to copy other labels' remasters. This is very true. However, JSP also do their own remasterings. They used to have John R T Davies remastering for them; the Django set is done b...

the django i'm not too excited about, because jsp has put out a very good django series with excellent sound. the only reason to get the mosaic is the booklet. i keep meaning to have a listen to it at my local library, but i can't imagine it sounding better than john r.t. davies's jsp restorations....

I have "Apollo Jump" on two different CD's and one's 150, the other is 151, so I guess I'm meeting in the middle between both of you...

I've Found a New Baby with vocals...

All I have is an Alphonso Trent and a Bunny Berigan version and the Berigan version more of a vocal group version, not quite what I'm looking for...anyone have any good vocal versions of this song?

Great song...

It's unfortunate the DJ won't tell you details of the song he/she played. What's up with that?

BTW I can't find that Svend Asmussen Cd anywhere on the web, where did you purchase it?
