  1. I hope this weblink works: https://youtu.be/bt-Z0cZhm70
  2. For those who do not already know: “This collection assembles all four historic debut concerts by the legendary guitarist in their original performance sequence.” https://www.jimihendrix.com/fr/music/jimi-hendrix-songs-for-groovy-children/
  3. The treatment room in the office of my dentist has a speaker on the ceiling that lets you hear classic rock. Sure enough, while waiting for the anesthesia to take effect in my mouth, the song selection coming out of the speaker included Pink Floyd’s “I…have become…comfortably numb.”
  4. Something I have suspected for a long time – “At $21, the cheapest seats in Heinz Hall, Downtown, home of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, are high up in the Gallery, high at the top of the balcony where the air is thin and the stage is but a distant splotch of color and motion. And believe it or not, these are also the best of the hall’s 2,675 seats…” https://www.post-gazette.com/ae/music/2019/10/14/Heinz-Hall-best-worst-seats-orchestra-concert-pittsburgh-symphony-acoustics/stories/201910070104
  5. Jimmy Giuffre on Verve: 1959-1961

    Wasn't the Piece for Clarinet.../Mobiles recorded in 1960? In 1959, I believe there was also a Sonny Stitt Plays Jimmy Giuffre Arrangements album.
  6. The woman was “just feet away and directly in front of the star,” according to: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2019/09/29/review-star-violinist-remains-unruffled-after.html I’ve heard of concert halls where the sweat of people on stage can land on people sitting on the first row.
  7. An audience member in the front row of a performance by violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, performing with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, was recording Mutter on her phone. With the phone such a few feet from her face, Mutter stopped the performance and asked the woman to stop. Instead of stopping, the woman attempted to engage Mutter in a conversation… https://www.cincinnati.com/story/entertainment/2019/09/30/audience-member-escorted-out-anne-sophie-mutter-performance/3821790002/
  8. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    Perhaps the piano was out of tune intentionally.
  9. Jimmy Giuffre and Yves Montand

    I had a chance to check the archives of the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times. Three weeks of shows were scheduled in New York. A reviewer for the Los Angeles shows wrote: "Recruited in America, the musicians - including the inevitable accordionist - succeeded in capturing a thoroughly Continental jazz flavor."
  10. Jimmy Giuffre and Yves Montand

    Has anyone ever heard of French singer Yves Montand being backed by Jimmy Giuffre on clarinet, Jim Hall on guitar, Bob Castella on piano, Al McKibbon on bass, Mel Lewis on drums, Tommy Shepherd on trombone, and Frank Moracco on accordion, for a few shows in Los Angeles in November 1959?
  11. Woodstock 50th Anniversary Releases

    I bought the Legacy edition of the first Santana album when it was released and the liner notes say “Interestingly, the band opted not to perform ‘Evil Ways’,” at Woodstock. Maybe the liner notes have been corrected in reissues of the Legacy edition.
  12. Woodstock 50th Anniversary Releases

    Speaking of the original Woodstock album: …Two of the Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young tracks, “Wooden Ships” and “Sea of Madness,” came from a Fillmore East show shortly after the festival, since Neil Young was reportedly happy with the recordings. Arlo Guthrie’s mic gave out during “Coming Into Los Angeles,” so the version heard on Woodstock was taken from a show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles…. …The crowd chanting Country Joe McDonald’s “The ‘Fish’ Cheer” (“Gimme an F. . . . Gimme a U…”) weren’t loud enough, so under Blackstead’s direction, a gaggle of studio employees shouted along in the studio. The same went for the famous “Rain Chant,” a clatter of pots and pans that was also concocted in the studio. “There is a ton of fake stuff,” says producer Andy Zax, who sorted through the tapes for an upcoming, unadulterated Woodstock box. “To one degree or another, the Woodstock soundtrack record is a pretty fraudulent artifact. But a lot of it was defensible. There were technical reasons or artist preferences.” https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/triumph-tragedy-woodstock-album-producer-eric-blackstead-849575/
  13. Woodstock 50th Anniversary Releases

    For those who do not already know, there is a Woodstock commemorative stamp that will be put on sale on August 8, 2019 http://www.stampnewsnow.com/uspsnewissues.html
  14. Woodstock 50th Anniversary Releases

    I would buy the 38 CDs if released in a cardboard box with cardboard sleeves at a much lower price.
