  1. Dear Jazz lover

    "On hearing a tape of a Candid recording by Cecil Taylor, Glenn Gould, a titan among great classical pianists of the 20th century, is said to have remarked:
    ``This is perhaps the most formidable pianism these ears have heard: This is the Great Divide of American piano playing.''

    I seem to remember to have also found a news that the track listened by Taylor had been O. P. Take 1 of January 9, 1961 (maybe in the information of some Candid records that I can't consult now).
    Can anyone confirm my opinion? Again: there are other reports that indicate how Gould appreciated Taylor.

  2. Please: LADY BE GOOD Featuring Mary Lou Williams & Coleman Hawkins JAZZ 1944 is this really about Lady Be good? Again: Rifftide Coleman Hawkins; Hackensack Thelonious Monk but is it the same song or there are some differences?

  10. *****Lester Young Corner*****

    Well, instead to reply at the topic I have a question and I hope someone will be able to solve it: readind the Martin Willias note on Crisis we can read: Space Jungle is a collectively improvised relatively light-weight, and perhaps light-hearted but far from frivolous, piece. On it, Coleman plays his violin, Dewey Redman plays clarinet, and Cherry plays Indian flute, an instrument on which he gets a lovely sound. Well the titles in which Don plays flute is Trouble in the East (also in the recent CD reissue by Real Gone Music.) So what's the mistake? We can considerer correct space jungle for the flute or Williams wrong on wrinting his note? I'm not sure to be clear I hope you are able to understand my request Greetings Luciano

      Luciano

      Dear Chuck,

      I'm a friend of Roberto Terlizzi who, in the 70s wrote something for Coda.

      If I remember well you know who had the tape of the:

      Los Angeles, Atlantic's Studio, November 29, 1961  who contain:

      The Idiot ecc..

      I'm a Don Cherry's passionate, I knew him in Hastveda in 1973 and I organized several concerts for him in Italy during the mid 70s and in 1982.

      I hope that session will be published sooner or later (better sooner I'm 74 years old)

      Anyway happy to know you are the critician.

      Have a good luck for your life and work (you and also your loved ones)

      Greetings

      Luciano
