  1. I heard a tune called "Man from Monterey" from a cd called Dizzy Gillespie w/ Gil Fuller and the Monterey Jazz Festival Orchestra. I can't seem to locate this cd or even find any reference to it. I love the tune and would like to hear more; anyone know of it??? Thanks, Mark
  2. Oscar Valdambrini

    I came across a vintage photograph of Oscar Valdambrini with Lee Konitz (from a friend). The photograph was taken November 11, 1962 in Italy and signed by the photographer (can't read the signature). I showed it to Lee at the Chicago jazz festival and he was very pleased to see it. I know nothing of Oscar....anyone know where I can see more photographs/bio? I'll try to scan the print in the next couple days to post here. Thanks! m~
  3. Barak, Happy Birthday, hope it's grand!!! Mark
  4. I don't really know much about Leloir but my friend Jim Neumann just sent me an early Christmas gift, a book that is called du Jazz plein les yeux. 97 pages of jazz images I've never seen before.....outstanding! Mark

  8. Jan Lundgren

    I am joining a friend and pianist Jan Lundgren for dinner in a couple nights and I know nothing about Jan except he is suppose to be a very good player. Who knows him and what is his playing like? Any suggestions on where to start on his music? Thanks! Mark

  11. Russell Garcia?

    I just picked up a recording from Russell Garcia and was wondering why I've never heard about the guy. I know a fair amount about West Coast Jazz but nothing about him. Anyone know anything about him other than the paragraph on AMG? Any tips on his recording? I only have "Los Angeles River" on JazzCity. Thanks, m-

  15. Brotherhood of Fred

    Anyone making the "Brotherhood of Fred" show this coming Wednesday @ the Jazz Showcase in Chicago? This is the second installment of this event to honor the late, great Fred Anderson. Featuring Kidd Jordan, Tatsu Aoki, Ernest Dawkins, Ed Wilkerson, Mwata Bowden and several others. If you like your music a little left of center, this is the place to be Wednesday night. I'll be up there at some point on Wednesday and will stay over until mid-day on Thursday. If anyone's in the area, stop in and say "hello"

  25. indiana state fair stage collapses, fatalities

    Not too far away from my home....pretty sad. Five dead and 40+ injured, some badly. They are now moving concerts in doors at other venues for some time. I see Sugarland is coming back next week to perform a show with proceeds going to families of those involved. Sad....sad!
