I’LL TAKE THEM ALL (1947)

Nothing more than a one-page ad listing the new issues for the Signature label — an impressive roster of jazz stars — with an appropriately modest description by the label’s founder Bob Thiele.

But the real treat is a little portrait (new to me) of a typically elated Leo Watson.

Now I have to go to my local record dealer, which isn’t going to be easy.

May your happiness increase.

    This brings back some good memories. Signature was a noble label, putting out a ton of fine music that still sounds great today. As I recall, Thiele was still in his teens when he started Signature — I assume he was backed by his parents’ money– but he sure knew who the good musicians were and how to record them. Strangely, if my memory is right — and God knows, I no longer count on it — despite this very substantial and lasting accomplishment, Thiele has nothing to say about it — or practically nothing — in his autobiography.
