NO SIR, It's not easy single-handedly running what has often been referred to as: "the best free vintage music website on the internet".
And it may very well be, but this wonderful resource still costs thousands of dollars per year in operating expenses alone.
All the while long unpaid hours are spent daily updating, expanding and developing our future content.

This is from Budd Johnson's first recording session when he was 19 years old. He takes two two-bar breaks toward the end of the record. Budd was a major component of Louis Armstrong's 1933 Chicago band, Earl Hines' band all through the mid 30's to the mid 40's and Billy Eckstine's "Cradle of Bebop" band. He was a fine arranger as well as a distinctive alto and tenor sax soloist. He also played a major role in both Ben Webster and Lester Young's development into tenor sax immortals. -Daniel Weinstein
