A couple of things - First, apparently the Jazzbo Collins side is on CD along with his "Fairy Tales For Hip Kids" side. You can find it here:


Second, the Birdland All-Stars RCA sides were not actually recorded on tour; they are studio recordings with dubbed-in applause. You can find the un-doctored versions on CD here:



The Tony Fruscella track from "East Coast Jazz Scene" is available on a Jazz Factory cd called "Tony's Blues."

Rab Hines

A nice mixed bag here, thank you. Some of these are different degrees of familiar and some entirely unknown.

Great - more things to track down and buy. But, then again, that's one of what you could call a good problem.

Thanks again.

Marc, you continue to do such wonderful work bringing all this information to us. One album which I have that might have been an interesting addition to the group here is the live recording made reportedly by Urbie Green with Woody Herman when Charlie Parker played with them in Kansas City: here's the link on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Bird-Herd-Charlie-Parker/dp/B000005OFH/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1278462231&sr=1-1
