  1. Al Hirt for Miller Beer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SARe8LbW_Y
  2. I checked recently and found something that said it was LEG (like an arm and a leg).
  3. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    The only Joe Marsala Black & White session with Joe Thomas is the one from November 29, 1944. The material from that session was reissued on Solid Sender (LP) and also on the following CD (which I thought you had): Perhaps you're thinking of the Musicraft session from the following year? That session, as well as the one mentioned above, are on the following CD: Other trumpet players, like his brother Marty and Dizzy Gillespie, show up on the other Joe Marsala sessions on Black & White.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I remember chatting with him after he was done. He seemed like a really nice guy. I have similar memories of Mundell Lowe.
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    An old favorite for me also. The version of "My Romance" where Farlow divides the strings on one chorus to get those octave effects is memorable. I think I have a copy of the LP that Tal signed for me. Yep. Just checked. "BEST WISHES ALWAYS -- TAL FARLOW"
  6. Summer songs

    When Summer Is Gone Indian summer
  7. When I was a kid in Cincinnati, my dad would take me many weekend mornings to watch the trains pass through Winton Place station. It's one of my fondest memories. Here are a few pictures that I found on line:
  8. This thread brings this album to mind:

    I just did the same. Listening to Skandia Skies now... Instant gratification!
  10. Musicians as drivers

    Off the top of my head, some other notable jazz-related driving deaths include: - Wild Bill Davidson (he survived, but Frank Teschemacher didn't); mentioned above in the interim; -Eddie Costa; - Cecil Irwin died in an automobile crash, but I don't know if he was driving/ - Don Murray died in an auto crash, but he wasn't the driver.
  11. Nice Jimmy Dorsey solo from 1929

    Jimmy Dorsey was quite adept at evoking or channeling Jimmie Noone.
  12. Art Hodes

    No. I think he may have moved out your way by then.
  13. Art Hodes

    Hodes is wonderful. I was fortunate to have seen him live once with another O-member.

    This material is on the second Hodges box on Mosaic, isn't it? Or is this something else?
