April 19

One of the surprising finds from Record Store Day 2015 was a minty copy of 1955s Town Hall Jazz Concert from saxophonist and band leader Charlie Barnet:

With a nearly perfect cover and super clean and well playing vinyl, I couldn’t pass this gem up… for $0.25!

The content on the record is ok, a (mostly) live recording from New York City in 1947, full on big band swing with hints of bebop and cool jazz for good measure. But, hey, no complaints here, the price was definitely right!
