Where to get Jazz Vinyl in New York

Hiya,

I've wangled 4 nights in New York at the start of Nov, and have got a day's pass to search out Jazz I cannot get back in the UK- where do you guys recommend that I go?

Also interested in any shops selling a decent range of audiophile Vinyl reissues

And if anyone is considering coming over to the UK I can return the favour

Cheers

Re: Where to get Jazz Vinyl in New York

I asked Fred Kaplan about this. There are lots of stores that sell vinyl LPs in their original pressings. Here are a few Fred recommends (the stores on Bleecker and West 3rd are just a few blocks from one another, and he also recommends the aforementioned Jazz Record Center):

Academy Records
77 E 10th St

Bleecker St Records
239 Bleecker St

Bleecker Bob's
116 W. 3rd St

Rebel Rebel
319 Bleecker St

Jazzfan,

It was great to see you appear again in these forums.

Last we heard I believe you were being "Transported" to the Netherlands. An update would be great, and as always, inquiring minds would love to hear what artists are currently moving you?

The best...

RG

Thx guys,

Jazz record centre was one that kept coming uop on google, and I have a sneaking suspicion I went there about 10 years ago, so will definately search that out

My wife lived in the vilage about 10 years ago,and she remembers lots of places around Bleeker street - looks like they are still there - great stuff

Cheers - and remember to PM me if anyone wants the same kind of info for the UK

Hi Simon,

FYI:

I've found that the (used) record stores in the Village, i.e. Bleeker Street area, tend to price their vinyl anywhere from somewhat expensive to just plain outrageous with very few, if any, bargains. On the other hand, both The Jazz Record Center (JCR) and Academy Records, do offer the occasional bargain along with their more expensive (but still quite reasonable) fare. In addition, the JRC has most of it's selection very carefully organized so finding what you're looking is pretty easy.

Re: Where to get Jazz Vinyl in New York

Thanks for the replies

Had a great time, and went to all the places recommended both here and in PM's

nowhere was "bad", but 3 places really stood out:
Second hand rose - got somne real nice original blue notes
other music - really eclectic selection - great place if you want to expand your taste
Academy records - excellent stock - got lots of classical vinyl, as wellas some jazz - very reasonable prices

I also went to Chicago, to visIt the work head-office, and managed to get down to the Jazz Record MART

In the end I had to get another suitcase to carry it all - just as well the wife is the understanding sort

If anyone ever wants the same info on London please let me know

Cheers
