  1. up again. By the way, I have a number of jazz instructional books - many with cds or dvds. If you are looking for something, contact me.

    I saw him about a year ago in a Manhattan jazz club...more than "old".... what shocked me was how overweight he was. I am not a fat shamer, but his weight gain looked unhealthy as he seemed to walk slowly. Absolutely no effect on his playing or fingers which flew all over his horn.
  3. I have met Lon, Dmitry and Catesta. All great guys!!!
  4. Otis Reddfing Dock of the Bay "Sessions"

    Thanks D, This is one of my favorite Otis tracks. Just Otis and guitar and yet you don't need anything else. Magnificent!!!
  5. Billy Higgins

    I am a huge fan. Blue Note contributions ...oh yeah. Later years I enjoyed him as part of the first incarnation of Charlie Haden's Quartet West.
  6. Maybe but it will be tough to beat the excellent film about Blue Note which was made before.
  7. Do you know Charlie Parker?

    some of the screens in the quiz are so off to the side that I can't read all the text....anybody else get that or know how to fix it?
  8. Since I just finished this Yaffe book, besides the Larry Kart interview reference - here's another interesting tidbit, to me at least. In the book, Joni is described as being friends with Dylan and that he played her an early unreleased version of Blood On the Tracks which she thought was awesome. The released version, according to Joni, was different and vastly inferior. Any opinions? (I guess some of those earlier versions are on the now officially released Bootleg Series?)
  9. Joni Mitchell and Larry Kart

    Larry thanks for posting your interview/article.....sounds like for the most part you liked Mitchell's "Mingus"album. I suspect you are being modest about the impression from the author of the Mitchell bio, David Yaffe, she was very selective about who she gave interviews to. Were you aware you are mentioned in the Yaffe book?
  10. I received the new Joni Mitchell biography as a holiday gift. The author says as one point (80s? 90s?)Joni was pretty much refusing any interviews but gave one to Larry Kart... Wonder if you would comment Larry?

  13. Not saying you should not bring hearing protection (I often do) but when I saw the Newark show I was pleasantly surprised that it was NOT overly loud. Brought plugs but ended up leaving them in my pocket.
