Don't Let Good (win) Music go to Waste!

Jack Goodwin, whose pedigree encompasses that of playing trombone with an early edition of the original Vieux Carré Jazzmen to that of an authority on, and discographer of, the great American saxophonist Warne Marsh, is looking for anyone who would be willing to offer a good home to a collection of - mainly - club or concert jazz cassette recordings contained in decent quality storage containers.  
Jack describes them as what he (and I) would call "modern jazz" - many Bill Evans concert recordings (40 approx) Ted Brown, Lee Konitz, Zoot Sims, Gerry Mulligan, many pianists, etc. etc.  All in all probably around 200 cassettes.
The charity shops don't want them and if he can't find a taker it will have to be the Blaydon waste disposal which, he says, would be a pity as there's a lot of great music on those tapes.

PS: I've posted the above pic for those of us who are too young to know what a cassette looked like!

Not really my sort of thing, Lance, but I'll give them a home if nobody else will simply to preserve them, rather than go to waste(both literally and figuratively!).

Thanks Steve, however, I think Jack may have already found a willing custodian. I'll let you know if he hasn't.
