12/15/2009 Dig Up The Roots

 

Certain labels and people have devoted themselves to the hunting gathering of old records. JSP has long been a haven for fanatics and the curious due to their great packaging and supurb audio restoration standards. Blues Images is a distributing arm connected to John Tefteller and his amazing and incredibly rare collection of 78 records. It is because of these nutcases that we can still hear this amazing and convention defying music.

We heard a set of big band cover tunes from a series issued on Time/Life during the early 1970's. There have always been watered down variations of nostalgia available, the music buisness trying to cash in on itself: if it sold once...

A collection of 10 inch 33 RPM records provided the material for a set going around the world from the safety of your own den. Japanese pop from the 1940's; fake Chinese music in a modern jazz disquise; modern jazz in a modern jazz disguise and Liberace doing the strangest take ever on a Slim Gaillard tune. Cement Mixer Put-ti Put-ti will never be the same.
