Where can I find this unreleased Ella Fitzgerald album?

Jazzfilter: I'm looking for the Ella Fitzgerald concert with this version of "Mr. Paganini (If You Can't Sing It)" on it. Unfortunately, her discography says the concert (02/18/1961 at Concertgebou, Amsterdam) was never issued. Does anyone know where I can find this record?

Modern Touring Jazz Artists/Ensembles

Sun Ra recommendations?

Ever since this August's Sun Ra thread, I've found myself digging deeper & deeper into his back catalog, which is at turns obscure, uneven, and daunting. I could use a little guidance to figure out which albums I should track down, and which I can skip. So, Sun Ra aficionados, which albums are your can't miss favorites -- the ones you return to, the ones I've got to listen to -- and what makes them stand out to you? This thread is of some help, but I'd like to cast a wider net than that OP did: any era, any group size are fine as far as I'm concerned.

Vintage Jazz in Spanish?

I'm looking for a good sampling of 40s, 50s, and 60s Jazz in Spanish. I know Spain wasn't producing a lot of Jazz throughout those decades but there was obviously a lot of Cuban influence in American Jazz and I assume Latin American influence as well. Who were the Sarah Vaughans and Louis Primas who performed in Spanish, and more importantly where can I get my hands on their music?

I really like the music in this Ibanez advertisement. Can you recommend similar music? Song/CD recommendations would be most helpful, but artist suggestions would not go unappreciated. And I guess it would help to know what genre(s) I should try listening to.

How do I be in a band?

I love music and over the past few years have taught myself to be pretty good as a ukulele player. I'd love to get involved with a band--old-time jazz, dixieland stuff--and really learn how to make music with others. But all I know is how to play by myself. I don't know how bands work in the slightest, nor how to find others who are better than me but willing to let me "play along." How do I get started getting started? Thanks!

Excellent blues bars in Philadelphia

I want the funk! And all that jazz.

I'm looking for funky jazz, with plenty of synth, an upbeat pace, and R&B influences, in the style of the mid 1980s to early 90s work of Chick Corea and Jeff Lorber. I've noticed this style tends to be copied in video game and movie soundtracks from that period, so recommendations for those types of music are welcome.
