Carolina Soul weekly offering: all 900+ album auctions ending on Sunday and Monday come from the collection of the late Lew Keck of Durham, NC. A lifelong jazz enthusiast and avid concertgoer, Lew met countless jazz greats after their performances and asked them to sign the jackets of albums that they played on. More often than not, Lew's best albums are autographed by original band members! What's more, by carefully affixing ticket stubs to many of the jackets and saving the concert programs, Lew effectively created a document of the concerts and his encounters with the performers. A final note: the condition of the vast majority of these is VG+ or better. Please join us in enjoying this very special offering. To browse this week's selection, click here.
