    Actually, I recommended that Chen ask the folks here on the TB forum if someone could help him out. I can't in good conscious cannibalize my own product that the publisher spent a lot of money and resources putting on the market. Of course, the proper way to do it would be for Chen to send the book back to Book Depository, and then they would issue a replacement. But the easier way to do it is just to ask for the files from a like-minded bassist who has them digitized. I won't do it, because I have a clear contractual obligation not to do that—but I'm guessing someone might give him the files . . . and I won't be bugged about it ;) Hal Leonard used to offer replacement CDs, but I think they've stopped doing that.
     
  3. There's a lot of help in acceptance. :)

    This issue came up last year for another TB member, and I supplied the files to him, per John's approval.

    @Chenejjj, please send me a PM, and I’ll send you the information you need to obtain the files.

    Hi Michael - Would you mind if I PM'd you about the same? I have a brand new edition, and I can't help but feel like the online edition is missing the entire middle section of the book - there are no samples from the "Players" section, even though they're mentioned in the text!

    Great book though.

    Hi michael... I was referred to you by John Goldsby as a possible reference for the sound files for his book. Could I get you to send me a link? I purchased the book and it didn't come with the cd.

    I made a playlist on Spotify for just about every recording mentioned in John Goldsby’s book.

    Hey @Ukiah Bass ... Thanks a million for doing the playlist. That’s a lot of great listening in one resource. How many hours in total is the whole thing?

    141 songs, 8hr 56min. I built the playlist 3 or 4 years ago and at that time, some of the songs listed in your book were not in Spotify's catalog. If anyone spots missing songs, let me know and I'll add them. Otherwise I'm busy watching your Upright Bass Handbook on TrueFire. Getting ready to start playing a big dog!

    It looks like you mainly included some tracks from Miles Davis w/ Ron Carter, but also with Percy Heath. MJQ (Percy), Duke Ellington (Blanton/Webster Band), and Count Basie (Walter Page). 144 songs, 9 hours of music.

    In The Jazz Bass Book, I mention several albums from *each* of 75+ or so bassists in the book, so I think there are quite a few left out here. For example:

    Red Mitchell, Hampton Hawes, All Night Sessions, Vol 1-3

    Charles Mingus, Mingus Ah Um

    Oscar Pettiford, Oscar Pettiford Meets Lucky Thompson

    Slam Stewart, Artist Link

    Scott LaFaro, Bill Evans at the Village Vanguard

    Charlie Haden, Artist Link

    and the list goes on and on. It depends how extensive you want to make this list of important bassists. I would project with 75 bass players, conservatively maybe 3-4 albums for each player...the full playlist would be about 300 albums / 3000 tracks / 250 hours of music. (Give or take a few minutes ;)

    Have fun listening!

    I believe that project is unfinished! Makes you think though ... with the scope clarified by John, these bass icons were on a massively broad range of disks. Not "everything" in a literal sense, but seems like it. Makes John's work of describing the variations and creating a jazz bass artist taxonomy all the more impressive!

    ... there is too much music to listen to. It renders me impotent. I want back a life based on record collection and compact cassettes.

    All those streaming possibilities only make me dizzy and not listening good enough. And yes, I know that it's my problem.
