For Esbjörn. . (April 16, 1964 – June 14, 2008). 🙏🙏🙏 He would have given us a lot more great music.
Because this turned into a day spent with Oscar Peterson live recordings, here’s another small 4-CD box. It’s an oddity (and a very cheap one, which you can still buy directly from the French Coda label for 19 Euro!) which, in 2019, reassembled some known […]
This one is for Ken Kuan, @kienkuan, who managed to complete his Oscar Peterson London House collection (on LP)! Instead of mirroring what he was spinning by listening to my Verve 5-CD reissue of said wonderful live recordings, I thought I’d hold this (rather rare) boxed […]

Continuing yesterday’s “theme”, here is the next boxed set I bought. At the time, I only had “Gaucho” (still my favorite Steely Dan album, sorry guys & gals) and simply wanted the rest. “Citizen Steely Dan 1972-1980” is still one of my most played box […]
