This mix before you today comes from part of a collection I bought over the last year from a woman in New Jersey. I saw her selling at a flea market, and when I checked out the quality of the records she had, I had to find out more. Her husband passed away and she wanted to get rid of the records that had been taking up space in her house, then her daughter's house. I bought a dozen of the records from her that day and we exchanged info. Over the course of five or six months I made trips to buy from her and ended up with a lot of really great, original jazz pressings. She told me a story about a lot of the records and the collection in general, and how she just wanted them to go to someone who'd appreciate them. So not only am I honored to have this man's jazz collection, I'm excited to have gotten these original pressings of some of jazz's greatest releases. This mix, who's cover pays tribute to the great Kenny Burrell, is for your ears all day long.
