  1. I can hold my with these misfires, if you get the opportunity check out Anita sings the winners, she wrote the book on scat. By way I was at Newport on that summers day, I have heard so much good jazz in my lifetime,I feel blessed, no one left to listen with, all passed away, sorry but my wife does not share my passion for this venue.      Regards, brewski.......

  2. holman and russo

    Last time I checked It was sold out.
  3. The complete Holman and russo charts
  4. Female Jazz Artists

    Anita could scat better than any female singer that I have ever heard. Try " Sings the winners" Don't sweat the things that are petty, and don't pet the things that are sweaty. Felser Rules !!! To continue, if I am senile I think my posts have influenced some of above members.
  5. Female Jazz Artists

    I would to list my top picks: Anita Oday (the best) Sarah Vaughn,Carmen Mccray, Sue Raney, Chris Conner, June Christy, Joanie Sommers, Dianne Ware, I'm sure I missed some, but I grew up with these Girls.

    Sorry about the spelling, I am sorry if I offended some of the members. Just thought it would entertaining to start this topic, you listed a bunch of singers that I never heard of. I intend to investigate them. I will thoroughly check any topic that I might want to start from now on.

  9. Jazz Crusaders aka Crusders

    These Guys have blowing my mind for years, just heard a new one "Milestones" it is friggen unbelievable !
  10. Thanks to all,now this old man has some people to commiserate with.
  11. Chet Baker.

    Anyone hear any of his earlier work ? like Live at Carnigie Hall,with Gerry Mulligan. I loved his music,and took the bad with the good,I suspect that Mulligan may have introduced him to " H ". I have quite a few of his albums, would like to hear from other fans.
  12. Kenton!

    Who was your favorite chart master for the Kenton Band?
  13. UH OH ! we all missed one, "BIRD" Lenny Niehaus,Ron Carter, John Guerin,Ray Brown. One more to thank Clint Eastwood for !
  14. Chet Baker.

    I hope that everyone has viewed the movie depicting Baker, " BORN TO BE BLUE" I bought a copy on Amazon,later found it was on YOU TUBE free. I thought that the star, Ethan Hawke did a good job as Baker. As previously stated,no one had the tone of his horn, rest in peace Chet. By the way I have 8 of his albums, if anyone desires I can list them.
  15. Chet Baker.

    Story about Chet, Once on a gig in Italy Chet was to perform with Benito Mousilini,s son who played sax,Well Chet must have been operating with a head full of smoke,as he strolled across the stage,embraced Mouso Jr and said " Gee man, sorry about your dad"
  17. Chet Baker.

    Anyone heard the collaboration , with Chet and Stan Getz ? good shit !
  18. How do you define genius , as it pertains to jazz?

    Genius is in the ear of the person listening, could he hit a higher note than Maynard, was he more lyrical than Desmond,was he smoother than Getz,one could on forever, it all ends in the ear and the person that is listening.
  19. Kenton !

    I need to hear from some real Kenton fanatics,please !
  20. Kenton!

    It was the best of bands ,it was the worst of bands. It was the pure tommy-rot of pretention, it was the soul of soaring unselfconsciousness. It was the very stuff of swing, it was an egomaniacs demented dream of pompousness. It was as light as Basie and as heavy as Beethoven. It was indulgent and ecstatic ,funereal and joyful. It was,in short,a band like no other. This G** damn it, was an orchestra. Thus spake Kenton. --- Will Friedwald
  21. Stan Getz downloads

    Not familiar with either. A real treat is the Getz/Chet Baker collaboration ,try it you will like it !
