Phew, Conrad Gozzo and Maynard Ferguson on that sample track...!

Count me in for a PDF. I have some tracks but not all (I still remember going to Colony Records looking for some of these albums, and the prices were outrageous). Graas is incredibly underrated; his Symphony is a wonderful piece of music that I'd like to conduct one day (It is available on VSOP).

Wayne Greene

The 110 tracks are also available on eMusic for $4.40! Please send me the pdf. Thnaks!

John Herr

For those who don't want to download & re-assemble on homemade CD 67 tracks, commercial CD reissues of Jazz Studio 1-6 are available, 2 volumes at a time, on 3 Fresh Sound discs for <$10.00 each (used) on Amazon. Separately available are Jazz Lab 1&2 (1 CD) & Jazzmantics, w/ Coup de Graas (another CD). I have all these CDs, & they include discographical data.

Bill Damm

I also purchased this material from eMusic.
I would be most grateful if you could send me the PDF. Thanks so much.

Susan Graas McKeever

Hello, I am Susan Graas McKeever, niece of John Graas. Thank you for writing this review. I would like a copy of the PDF, please. John Graas's handwritten scores are all being digitized at Ball State University for those interested in getting scores for performance use. Thanks, Susan

Garth Jowett

I also downloaded this wonderful set from eMusic, even though I do have most of this music as separate albums. Could you please send me a copy of the PDF.

Many thanks,

Max Bygrave

I downloaded this from iTunes last week.
Could you please send me the pdf.
Sincere thanks

I would be very interested in the PDF so that I can check to see how much of this release I already have on LPs and/or CDs.

I have been collecting Graas, Watkins and all the rest for many years, so I am wondering what gaps still remain in my collection. I will also be checking Ms. McKeever's discography, also.



Sverre Worren

Please send me the PDF. Very interested in West Coast jazz of the fifties. Thanks a lot, Sverre
