The Gift That Keeps On Giving

How many of these do you have? Clearly, Chet Baker was a big seller for Dick Bock's Pacific Jazz label. This bit of seasonal promotion comes from the Dec. 12, 1956 edition of Down Beat magazine. Only $3.98 each, and in high-fidelity mono! Those were the days ...

Well, jazz fans, it's been quite a while. Sorry for the long absence, but I've been working on several big projects in the past year and I somehow couldn't find time to feed Gems. But with the holiday season upon us and the New Year looming, I'm going to try to get back in the groove. So best wishes to all for a Merry Christmas (as Mr. Trump would have it) or a happy holiday season, whichever you prefer. My New Year's resolution – more great downloads on Gems of Jazz!

  1. I always enjoyed the small wooden sign a coworker used to hang outside his door that said "Happy Everything." 'War on Christmas.' Please! Sounds like you've been busy. Hope everything turned out okay and that you're doing well. Thanks for all the groovy sounds.
