    • Gildo Mahones, RIP
      R,I,P, One of those unsung jazz greats who never played a bad note and always found the perfect notes to play, in good taste and spirit. All of the many Prestige dates he did as a sideman in the 1960's are worth listening to, but his two LPs worth as a leader still has some tracks unissued and never was on CD. He came a long way,starting with Charlie Singleton's band in 1949, Lester Young in the early 1950's, Julius Watkins' band Les Jazz Modes, accompanist for Jon Hendricks and Lambert, Hendricks & Ross/Bavan, settling in California and playing for many singers, Lorez Alexandria in particular. His only other recrding as a leader was an LP for Interplay in 1990. To me, he was the perfect tasteful modern jazz pianist.
    • What Is This Dance? What Are These Songs?
      Not born into it, so I wasted twenty years not dancing! In college I was lucky to have a very good dance history teacher, who got me into lindy hop, and a graduate student friend who was (and still is) a professional tap dancer, who got me into tap. I watched as much of the existing video as possible, and talked to and studied with the old timers (Norma Miller, Frankie Manning, etc.) or those one step removed (Sylvia Sykes, Rusty Frank, Chester Whitmore, etc.).
    • Cecil Taylor RIP
      Shatz wrote: "....Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “This Nearly Was Mine” on his 1960 album The World of Cecil Taylor—one of the last standards he would ever perform...." In 1962 (Copenhagen and Stockholm) he was still playing What's New? and Flamingo, the latter of Earl Bostic (but not written by) renown.
