  1. Did Vince Guaraldi Peanuts Scores Inspire You to Learn Jazz?

    Cast your fate was a big intro to jazz for me, not peanuts score, which to tell you, i associated more at the time with David Benoit doing it, as he did a popular smooth cover verion in the 80s.

  3. Tete Montoliu - April&May 1984 US tour

  4. Thad Jones/ Mel Lewis Orch. - All My Yesterdays

    is there a deeper connection between Jones-Lewis band + Duke Pearson band. or is it just that they share a lot of members because that was who was around nyc to do that sort of thing at the time. or is there a deeper connection i am missing, eg. duke was in the band etc

    yea!! We are are far removed from the reissue era- it kind of died out with smooth jazz, coniencdently. they should sell the catalog again to some who will use. it- whats the value and power of having it w/o using it?

    was going to get rid of this but then i tested it and its actually not a mood music lp but jazz piano almost more of the hard bop kind. on disocgs it says he is on the split lp on guest star shared w/ don garner feat.jimmy smith-- u think it could be a pseudonim for ramsey lewis?
