Teo Macero also recorded albums of his own.
Why don't I find any discography of these albums, i.e. personnel, recording dates, etc?

Jazzy Kat, this entire site features music done in mixes. BC has 5 years of jazz sets in which the music is mixed instead of being played in it's entirety. If you want to hear the complete songs why not create your own playlists instead of criticizing his work.

To BC: Thanks for all the years of great music, keep up the good work. I'm hoping to do a website in a similar vein in 2009, perhaps we'll get a chance to trade notes in the future.

Nice collection, but I really regret your decision of putting these masterpieces on what I call a 'DJ Style': One piece right on top of the other.
Music (Jazz) normally, has a beginning, Middle (improvisation) and an end. I think it is a lack of respect to the musicians, composers, producers and to the public not to present the themes in all its beauty rather than squeezing all them in like sardines.

Just look at that list of albums folks!
What an amazing collection of music.
Next to the artists themselves, we have Teo Macero to thank for these masterpieces. And they truly are masterpieces in their own right.
