Do you play Klactoveesedstein Frank? And if you don't play it, can you even pronounce it?

Peter- thanks for posting those Billie Holiday cards. I'm sure you are right that they are the only ones released while she was alive. Do you happen to have a checklist of the rest of the set? As a jazz fan, I got to say those are really neat.

Trade a James Moody and a Gerry Mulligan for a Chet Baker Metronome All-Star card and a Sonny Rollins rookie...

That’s my nickname Barry.

Oops, wrong thread.

Thank you all.


All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

Would have been great if there were a Exhibit.


@Gary - Yes, many of us - anyway, a few handfuls - of cloistered jazz fans here. We hardly ever make an appearance in the "Been To Any Concerts Lately" thread. I try to get into NYC when I can to the jazz clubs...maybe those smaller venues aren't considered a "concert". I dunno.

BTW - I got a "thing" for Sonny Fortune, another alto sax player (alto flute too). First time I got to see him live was in mid Seventies San Francisco, at the long since defunct Keystone Korner.

I have the Sonny Fortune album "Awakening." Haven't played it in a long time, maybe I should give it a listen.

I am almost positive there are no cards of Coltrane either. Basie and Miller have 40s mutoscopes and of course Louis has tons of cards and Ella has quite a few.

I'm surprised that no one here has mentioned of the famous New York City Jazz scene which was named after Charlie.....BIRDLAND.

Birdland was established in 1949, Charlie Parker was the headliner, and the club owners named it after him. Birdland was located on
Broadway, just west of 52nd Street. This part of the City was a hot-spot of Jazz in the 1930's to the mid-1960's.

I graduated HS in 1957, my Jazz-loving buddies and I would drive to Birdland almost every month. Admission was $5, a hard-liquor
drink was only $1.50.

Listed here are some of the Jazz greats which we saw (and heard) at Birdland.

Duke Ellington
Ella Fitzgerald
George Shearing
Dizzy Gillespie
Gene Krupa
Paul Desmond
Gerry Mulligan
Count Basie
Lionel Hampton
Dave Brubeck Quartet
Vince Guaraldi Trio
etc.


The 1950's and 1960s were a great time to be a "Jersey guy" with a car, living less than an hour away from New York City.
