Hi. There are several recordings still available from the Dutch Jazz
Archives : Four LPs, H2004, H2006, H2007 and H2013 (Alabama Swing,
Rambling Around, Swing Mr. Charlie, Zuiderzee Blues, respectively),
and one CD, NJA9901 (Theo Uden Masman). The CD has the nine cuts from
the band's recording session in 1929. Try www.jazzarchief.nl for more
information, although most of it is in Dutch.
Mercury Records B.V. issued a CD (538 374-2), containing some of the
recordings made in the 50s, and Dureco has two CDs,1153872 (Hilversum
Express),and 1158042 (Farewell Blues).
I hope that this information helps.
