Guest Column: Blue Note Angst (10 comments)
I tend to agree, with the caveat that a lot of people are more interested in the artifacts than the system they’re played on. I collect (primarily) avant-garde jazz, which certainly doesn’t come cheaply these days, but dealing with small label privat […]

Blue Note 1568: Bah, Humbug (23 comments)
Let’s start a ‘top fifty most collectible American jazz records’. Its important for the younger collectors to know about the holy grails before that knowledge is relegated to the coffee houses of Japan. I’ll start with these four gems:

A Fine Array From Blue Note and Prestige (9 comments)
Two months ago, the Blue Note Gods were smiling on me. I purchased a first pressing VG+/VG copy of 4031 for less than 3 figures. I realized I did well. Now I realize I did even better ! Love it when that happens. Moral is to keep looking […]

I recently came into some jazz photos with autographs and I have no clue where to find out their value – I have offers but I don’t want to get ripped off . Do you know of anywhere I can go? I also have pictures from the Blue Note Night Club […]

Jazz Vinyl From Blue Note and Vogue (6 comments)
Referencing “Related Posts,” the 1954 George Wallington “Showcase” 10-incher on Blue Note is a particular favorite of mine. I bought it when it came out, and have greatly enjoyed the arrangements and solos. Japan later issued a 12-inch LP that contai […]

Originals vs. Reissues, Another Point of View (51 comments)
If you collect records but never play the records, then sound quality means very little–right?

Looking at the covers, checking off the boxes of the have and have not become the sole reason for the hunt. But if you are buying the original pressin […]

I sympathize. I live near Santa Cruz, California, where one long-standing record store, Logos, closed a few weeks ago. They had the annoying practice of putting those pesky price tags not only on the record cover, but also on the actual record label […]

Blue Notes and Monk at 100 (23 comments)
I think the seller of that Monk lp hurt himself by not accepting returns. I recently had a nice sale of a 10″ Monk which sold for an excellent price. I don’t think I would have had such attractive bids if I refused to accept returns. Accepting return […]
