eMusic have recently added loads of great CDs from the Swedish tax label - on eMusic they are under the 'Ancha' label.

Live transcriptions from:
Coleman Hawkins/Erskine Hawkins
Artie Shaw
Benny Goodman
Bunny Berigan
Will Bradley
Charlie Barnet

(Sound quality is mixed but largely acceptable on some of these in my opinion)

Swing Music Series CDs from:
Red Allen
Slim and Slam
Maxine Sullivan
Red Nichols

(Sound quality is very good on these)

As usual, I don't know about the geographical availability of these - all I know is they are available for download in the UK. (Thought: it would be very useful if the online music suppliers would state geographical availability for their downloads next to the music).

Here's a link to the Ancha label on eMusic -

This label is also available for download from Amazon in the UK, but for me eMusic is quite a bit cheaper.
