  1. Great series! I want to ask your help. I'm trying to find the TimeLife Big Bands series. I seem to not be able to find the bulk of the series. I can only find a few of them. For clarification, it's this one: https://www.discogs.com/label/541645-Big-Bands?page=2

    3. I have "Time-Life The Swing Era". There are 28 cd's. I do not know if it is what you are looking for. If they are those, I will upload them little by little since they are more than 3 GB. Confirm it

    7. Absolutely great, that's what I was looking for when I told you about Mezzrow... the soundtrack!
      (...and it reminds me of another Big (Jazz) Band!)
      Thanks Doc.
