Since we've confirmed that Ormandy did make acoustic recordings, he may be in a small club. As we've
said Stokowski didn't make any digitals and if Boult did, it wasn't released. Fiedler definitely
made digital recordings (Soundstream, 1977, backup to Crystal Clear Records, direct-to-disk) but I'm
not sure that was ever released. Did he make later digital recordings before he died?

I believe Johnny Hodges may have as well but I cannot be absolutely positive about that. Acoustical
era to digital that is. Perhaps Eubie Blake did too...
