got the jazzin' wreckroom blues

jeesh, i love cd box sets!
we went out to best buy friday nite to blow some of our refund moola. sharon heads for the music dvds, and i stumble over to the box set section . i was lucky to find a copy of ken burns' 'jazz'.
it is great! i watched the series when it was on pbs, but never got around to the set. there was always something else i wanted first, like martin scorsese's 'the blues', or sun records 8 cd set, '50 golden years', that we got at sun studios in memphis for only 60 bucks, (which is now almost impossible to find for less than $150!).
so we have been jukin' and jivin' and singing the blues all weekend, with the occasional dvd foray, (we plowed thru the u2 'elevation' dvd, next up is the 'crossroads guitar festival' show w/ eric clapton et al and i really can't belive sharon sat thru the whole 'end of the century - the story of the ramones', had to be the wine).
well, time to put another dime in the jukebox . . .

and here are few gems that have had the wreckroom jumpin'!
louis armstrong and the dukes of dixieland - bourbon street parade (stream)
duke ellington - st. louis blues
carl perkins - blue suede shoes
r.l. burnside - darker blues
louis prima and his new orleans gang - caldonia

louis jordan's version is much better, but i found this link, so . . .
louis prima lived a block from my house in vegas when i was growing up there. that house was always partying, as i guess our house was too. it was a closer knit community then. now i hate even stop-overs there.

my old roommate got the ken burns jazz box right before we parted ways. i am soo jealous of both of you now. all i got to do was look at it (he picked it up for a class).
