A Collection Worth Viewing
For the past few weeks I have been having a blast looking at and listening to the records I acquired in that stellar collection from Baltimore (The Complete Jazz Collector Bruce M. West Collection). Last night I listened to two of the rarest, and greatest, jazz trio records ever recorded: Sonny Clark Trio, Blue Note 1579 and Tommy Flanagan Overseas, Prestige 7134. I have heard about these records for years, but never owned original copies. It give me great pleasure to put my own copies on the turntable and just listen to them. And they really are great. As I’ve been listening to the records I’ve been putting them onto the shelves in my collection. However, before putting too many of them onto the shelves, I did a video of some of the highlights from the collection for posterity and for insurance purposes. I hadn’t planned to show the video to anyone here at Jazz Collector, but why not? Part of the fun of having a collection is to be able to share it with friends. SoI will post the video here. It is clearly not professional and it ends with a closeup shot of my foot. But it is really cool flipping through the records and I decided to leave it as is, unedited, since it was never intended for public consumption. I’m sure there will be many comments. Please be discrete and respectful. Thanks. Here is is: Jazz Collector 12-Inch Collection From Baltimore.
