1000 Best Short Games of Chess by Irving Chernev
Fireside; Rei Sub edition | July 15, 1955 | English | ISBN: 0671538012 | 579 pages | PDF | 19 MB

My vote for the most fun chess book ever. The early games–these are the shortest–would not be played today by any competent high-school player…a good reason for having them archived here. All chess freaks must own this one, to recall a time before chess became the triple pillar of Soviet culture.

Label: Criss Cross Jazz | Rel:1996

For a change of pace, Eric Alexander recorded this set with an organ trio. The fact that it was cut in Europe is not too relevant, since the musicians are all Americans. With stimulating backing by organist Melvin Rhyne, guitarist Bobby Broom, and drummer Joe Farnsworth, Alexander plays five originals by bandmembers (including three of his own) and a trio of standards. However, the originals all swing and mostly sound as if they could have been veteran standards, too. With the underrated Rhyne keeping the rhythm grooving and lightly funky, Alexander often tears into the pieces, while playing the ballads with a great deal of warmth. Virtually all of Eric Alexander's recordings are easily recommended.
