A Selected Mary Osborne Discography Listed Chronologically

Many of these recordings are available on CD and in some anthologies. Search the Internet CD services for recordings by the leaders mentioned below. Most of these can be found on out of print vinyl. The recordings Osborne made as leader are generally unavailable except on vinyl. A small number of additional recordings from the 1940ís are included in some discographies, but because they cannot be documented I have left them out of this list. They may exist on studio tapes somewhere.
