  1. Glad to be back

    The goons are still at it, Chris. Look, I like and appreciate Mike Ricci and, apparently, he's personally involved with this latest debacle. I'm sure he'll have something to say. But this is only one in a string of erratic, nonsensical bannings. I'm only too aware that being a moderator is a mostly thankless job but clearly, the structure needs some attention at AAJ. I spoke out in defense of one of the bannished and received a copy of the rules and a not so subtle warning. He might as well have pointed to the door and said, "No soup for you!"
  2. Brunch Livened Up By Jazz Trio's Violent Breakup October 30, 2006 | Issue 42•44 The Onion - America's Finest News Source SAN FRANCISCO—An ordinary Sunday afternoon brunch at Café Cleo was enlivened by an explosive physical exchange between members of jazz band Everywhere/Nowhere, which ended with saxophonist Dave Jeremy storming out of the eatery. "I was just sitting there eating my eggs Benedict with tempeh hash browns, and all a sudden the music stopped and I heard this loud 'crack' and a spit-covered mouthpiece whizzed past my head," said local silk-screen artist Sarah Wang, who was dining with poet Jenna Nowler and playwright James Lewis. "Not only did the jazz stop for a while, we also had something to talk about besides James' new one-act." After the breakup, the two remaining members of Everywhere/Nowhere played a 30-minute drum-and-bass version of "My Funny Valentine."
  3. Ron : If you really want your nose opened to what Greta does, go to the Origin website and check out some of the clips from her CDs .. better yet, check out her website: http://gretamatassa.com/index.html I'll betcha end up copping at least one of 'em!! Phil K Thank you, Phil. You're absolutely right - I will get a couple of her CDs. Talk about deserving of wider recognition! Well, that certainly applies to you, too. Her vocal on My Museum is stunning. The lyrics are wonderful. I can't recall the writing collaboration. Good luck with the CD.
  4. My Museum is superb, Phil. Congrats! And Gretta! What can you say?
  5. hand surgery

    Hey Greg, was it actually a tumor? I had one of those ganglion cysts once that look just like a tumor. Regardless, glad things are A-Okay!
  6. The passions of Mitch Albom

    And, of course, his ears are too big.
  7. Sad. One of the best programs on the air. I've been a devoted fan for years.
  8. The Yardbirds

    Thanks RT. Great stuff!
  9. The Yardbirds

    New York City Blues.
  10. The Moody Blues

    I liked a few of the songs in the early days - never bought anything. I've seen a bit of the NEW Moody Blues on PBS fundraisers and I have to say that with the fluffy wigs and ruffled shirts, they pretty much creep my ass out.

    There is none.

    Me too.

    It did take guts, and was on target much of the time, but it wasn't that funny. Guy

    With all due respect, whether you like him or not, you don't know what you're talking about.
