  1. Bonnie Pointer R.I.P.

  2. Tina Brooks

    Utica 10 Feb 1964, during Birdland gig of (at least) late Jan through mid Feb. Presume the same quartet too, Lefty Simms, piano; George Scott; drums; Hassan Abdullah; bass. Anyone know Lefty or the bassist Hasaan Abdullah? George Scott we "all" know from Mingus "Pre-Bird" the 1969 trio with Ronald Shannon Jackson is likely among the last of Tina's known engagements; that Shannon was himself then "sick" too adds extra dimension to the whole thing; were their connections in Utica that solid or were they bringing stuff up from the city, etc?
  3. Tina Brooks

    Tina Brooks, Utica late-January to early Feb 1969; Rick Montalbano (misspelled ad), organ, is alive-- Ron Jackson, drums, who is almost certainly Ronald Shannon Jackson, is not. I do not have the Mosaic booklet at hand but Tina played Birdland in Utica regularly since at least February 1962, not long after coming off road with Ray Charles? Also not the first nor the last time J.R. Monterose misspelled. May 1966 with belly dancer Mari-Jay (who?!). There is more.

  8. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    And what "name" is that, really? Look at Malcolm Addey's credits and I defy anyone to make the case "Steve Hoffman" has even a fraction of Addey's qualifications or artistic track record. Even if one cares for for the (overpriced snake oil hype) pop rock schlock regurgitations SH specializes in, Addey should get any gig he wants until he's no longer able to do it to his own superior standards. just one of many many dozens of killer sessions Malcolm was * engineer * for- Whip! Whop! - that's he's done brilliant work with 78s, mono, early stereo etc too is remarkable.

    below from Pittsburgh Courier 1 Dec 1945; note use of the term "DAR-ism", let Daughters of the American Revolution be as offended as they like you know there's a bio by woman named Karen Chilton? i've not read yet but it can't not be interesting
