    I started to scroll through your catalog, and before I was even a quarter of the way down was in love. This is an astonishing collection; so many artists and collaborations I either was unaware of or never had the chance to experience. Kudos to whoever is behind this, as your love for great music, live performance thereof, and desire to share it with the world (freely, no less!) is a blessing to the planet and its inhabitants. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Hi LJL,

    Thanks a lot for your time and dedication for the music. Your web is an oasis. No bad links, no popups, and the only publicity and promotion is for the music of the artists. I’m an amateur musician, and as an artist I would be proud to, some day, be so good musician, that my music could be in a web like yours. Perhaps some day Bill (or the people that advice him) will understand that your web is a good way to promote the music.

    All my best wishes to you and your comunity,

    Xavi B

    Thank you so much for maintaining this website, an incredible vault with tons of good music. Picture me almost drooling on the mousepad while browsing for the first time through your archives. Being a pro musician I really appreciate what you are doing here. I have been collecting radio broadcasts of live jazz myself for a long time and tried to attend many live concerts even if that meant driving hundreds of kilometres. Nevertheless there are shows too far away or others I could not see because of myself playing the evenings.

    Peace, love and jazz, Stephan

      Thanks for this incredible resource. As one who listens to the recordings of many of these artists, I’ve always wished there was more music to hear than what is available commercially (all of which I’ve purchased, often more than in one format!). So, having these live recordings available is a godsend. And you’ve done a beautiful job of organizing and making it easy to listen to the music.
