Tarik, life & times of:
born 1992 in California. Grew up there. Became jazz fan in 2003 while in 5th grade (thanks Dad), and have been constantly tapping my foot/snapping my finger ever since. Also began playing trumpet in 5th grade (shout-out to the band teacher for not letting me play saxophone like I wanted). Discovered Dave Brubeck in 2006, still dealing with consequences.
Graduated from high school in the summer of ’11, briefly studied at a community college. First half of 2012 spent out of school and working. Went to University down in Dixie in the fall of 2012 as a Nursing major, graduated six years later with a nursing degree, and now I work. Yahoo.
Became mildly interested in vinyl in 2011, then became an enthusiast the following year as I began to search for Brubeck recordings available only on vinyl. In the ensuing years, I have spent way too much money increasing my record collection, which is 89% jazz, 5% classical, 5% easy listening albums from the 1950’s & 60’s (don’t judge), and 1% random stuff. To contact me about the site, talk jazz records, or the like, shoot an email at email@example.com

I’ve come across a comment of yours on the LJC blog about you having a copy of Miles Smiles with tracklisting errors in the labels. Would you be able to provide photos of these labels for me please?
Sure. Send me your email address and I’ll email them to you.
Great, thanks Tarik. My email address is:
martin at mskelly dot plus dot com (spelled out in an attempt to confuse the bots!)
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can have the actual address! Bots won’t even be a problem!
I’ve got this red album also. One of my faves!
Honestly, I don’t know how I got to your blog. But let me tell you, it’s wonderful. I am a jazz collector from Buenos Aires, Argentina and I always search for records and recordings. From what I see you are much younger than me, you could be my son, but boy if I had a son like you. It would be the glory.
I will keep my eyes on your blog, surely you will discover wonderful records.
Best wishes, Diego Viegas.
