Rare downloads: I received the following tip yesterday from Ed Newman for those who want to save money on the recordings they read about at JazzWax.com:
"Marc: Your weblog has become a daily visit for me, and I've gotten a lot of great music thanks to it. You might want to note that a lot of the stuff you describe as being out of print is actually available at EMusic.com. Today I snagged the three Hampton Hawes discs you praised. You can get something like 72 downloads a month for $20, so it's a wonderful deal. Keep up the great work
