In 2006 I lived Simonoseki City in those days.For a family trip I went to ‘Osamu Uchida Jazz Collection’ (in Okazaki City).
The tenor sax of Miyazawa Akira (yesterday’s blog photo) are permanent exhibition.
The photo is what I received from the clerk of the jazz collection.
There are a lot of precious historical materials. Jazz fans I think the place to visit.

CBS broadcast had a permanent wire installed at Carnegie. Also New York Philharmonic every Sunday was broadcasted by CBS. CBS master control at 485 Madison Avenue.There was the custom transcription studios. The networks and stations had modest facilities for recording reference air checks for their own purposes.
The lion’s share was done by independent operations. They thrived because a lot of people needed such recordings. Ad agencies, advertisers, performers, band leaders, writers, producers and others all needed air checks.
When an air check was required, the studio would simply open the circuit to the appropriate station or network and take the feed. Technically, it was not an “air check,” since the signal was taken directly off the line wire.
This was why Goodman’s Carnegie Hall concert could be recorded so routinely. It was not broadcast, of course. But it was easy for an independent studio simply to phone CBS master control, request the circuit to Carnegie Hall to be opened, and take the feed that way.
I quoted from the article of the IAJRC Journal – Vol 39, No 3, August 2006
John McDonough writes for Down Beat and The Wall Street Journal.
It is a completely different performance as the record that was introduced in yesterday’s blog.
I saw The JATP in ” Osaka Castle Hall 1983”.
Of course the last performer was Ella.
While listening to this record, I think I miss those days.
My favorite record in Tony Bennett album is “tony sings for two”
This is the organization of only vocal and piano, but it is wonderful.
The accompanist was Ralph Sharon who died March 31.He was 91.
