  1. Reminded me of a flash mob (remember those?) One of the major Paynesville academies let out for the end of the school week, and seemingly every student with access to a musical instrument (mostly drums of many types) was busting loose in a 20x20 meter cemented-in area. Sure, probably happens every week when I'm not around, but felt really special to be there. Photo too big to upload. Damn.
  2. How's the weather?

    This can be a pretty lousy time of year here, but I have had two near-perfect weeks in Sierra Leone and Liberia - 36C and humid, but few flooding rains. And it's looking good for my return to N'Djamena, 41C but 24C evenings . (Yeah, I'm happier warm than cold.)
  3. I've got the original circa 1960 version (back in the United States). Has this been re-issued? It would be nice if it was.
  4. Night Lights topics?

    Hmm. Never heard of it. Better do an AltaVista search on the word.
  5. https://theoaklandelementaryschoolarkestra.bandcamp.com/album/the-thornhill-sound My grade school, some time after my departure, under the direction of my old friend and a local hero, Randy Porter. Thornhill isn't what it once was (at least what I can tell from afar); it was progressive, even "experimental" in the early sixties.
  6. Happy Birthday, John Coltrane

    Thanks for the remind-oh.
  7. "Thanks" ain't enough. But it's what I got, in abundance. I hope you have/he has another great year.
  8. Mitch Miller???!!
  9. Oh no. Oboe. So tough to play well, that it can't be done.
  10. Enjoy. I caught Harry Allen at The 75 Club and at Smalls. Very nice evenings.
  11. Happy Birthday kh1958!

    Have a great one!
  12. Hurricane Lane

    I've been overseas for months, years. I just got back. Working in Honolulu/Aiea/Hawaii Kai. Timing is everything.
  13. Anyone else in the path?
  14. Happy Birthday Tom in RI

    Happy Birthday, Tom.
  15. Happy birthday Bebop...

    Hey, belated thanks to you all! I don't get around here much anymore - not by choice, but just because I seldom have internet connections. But I sure do miss this place. And miss music more generally, beyond what I've got on my 30GB MP3player. Hopefully, 2019 will bring a change or few. But thanks for remembering me.
