  2. thank you for the info , friend :)

  3. hey guys, oddly enough, my dad was the trumpet player of this group, Jack Kramer... It's really awesome you guys know about it! We recently cleaned up the album a little bit and got some new tracks. I'll keep a link here for a while:

    Spread the love! If you have any questions, comments, or anything about them feel free to ask!

  4. I listened to your rip, and it sounds really good, and the artwork is good too, thanks! Oh, and there's some extra songs on the album I linked to that you might like in addition to the seven you have.

  5. Thank you , Franklin. I was pleasantly surprised by your comment :) , I can upload the album and the extra songs , with your and your father's permission of course, after I listen to them. You can write the review of the album . The credit, for both, the album and the review will be yours. Thanx again.

  6. yeah, he would be totally cool (and actually very happy) if you uploaded it; at this point he thinks its awesome whenever people listen to it, so he'll really like this story about how you uploaded his album. You can go ahead and write the review for it, I'd probably be a little bit biased, and I'm not really sure how to go about it (oddly enough I don't listen to music too much). But if you have any questions about anything pertaining to the band/Jack Kramer feel free to ask and I can send them over to my dad. Actually, I'm sure he'd love it if you had questions or anything that you wanted to talk about. Thanks for uploading it!
