  3. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    John Ogdon was teaching at IU when I was there. Real character. Jim Beard studied with him. I like to play the first page of the Dutilleux sonata but I'm done after that. Thanks for hipping me to the Dukas sonata.
  4. James Mtume (1946-2022)

    Heard him with Miles in 1974. Was amazed (as a sixteen year old) at the telepathy going on, how he had his eyes closed when Miles was flashing his hand signals like a catcher to pitcher. He came out a few times to gigs I played with Jimmy. In 1994 we recorded soundtrack to an episode of the cop show NY Undercover, Mtume was producing. A good experience to have. Of course we did Gingerbread Boy. What Jim said...

  6. Lloyd Price, RIP

    Couldn't tell you. Barry's the only one I know of. I got my start as a juvenile delinquent hanging out at Preston Forest Bowling Alley in junior high.
  7. Lloyd Price, RIP

    Before he had his stroke I used to go bowling at the Port Authority bus terminal with Barry Harris. We ran into Lloyd Price up there. Nice guy.
  8. Live Streaming Concerts

    Thanks for the plug Tom. One track on YouTube:
  9. Unissued Music You Would Like To See Released

    Wouldn't that be nice
  10. RIP Chick Corea

    Excellent Interview.
  11. RIP Chick Corea

    When he was at his worst, he was one of the very very very best.
  12. Big John Patton Sighting?

    I worked at the Flamingo Lounge with the Junior Cook/Bill Hardman Quintet dozens of times. There was an upright piano there. No organ in the club. So from the information you've provided there's no reason not to assume BJP didn't play just because there wasn't an organ there. It's not a record date, just a joint with a piano. https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=177304842700839
