It feels like Spring! Beautiful day for a little stroll to flea markets
Here 's what I 've found this week end:

Jazz auf Amiga vol.4 and 5
The Historic Donaueschingen Jazz Concert 1957 (MPS)
Dee Daniels with the Montry Alexander Trio (rare album on small Belgian label)
Max Greger Sunshine / Starshine (Polydor) ... for the funky track Soul House and a few other ones.  One of his better albums.
Monty Alexander Trio - Full Steam Ahead (with a version of the Stones' Satisfaction)
Jazz & Hot Dance in South Africa ... SA Jump Blues!
Chris Barber Jazz & Blues Band -Sideways : weird combination of trad, soul jazz and british prog/ jazz rock.  Great drumming by Pete York (ex-Spencer Davis Group / Hardin & York)
Memphis Slim - Clap Your Hands (1964) ... pure French Mod sound with Mickey Baker, Jacques Denjean on organ, french jazzers (Gerard Badini ...) 

Average price: € 5!  


  1. Congrats! Nice work. Donaueschagen 57 a beaut.

  2. The Chris Barber date sounds wild...

    1. I'll check if it is OOP and will post it.

  3. Where are you then? Max
    Greger looks the cover!
