  1. Jazz musicians that have cameos in films.

    I just watched Get Yourself a College Girl. Jimmy Smith is in it too. Laurindo Almeida appears playing guitar in the 1954 A Star is Born. I have a vague memory of someone of note playing piano on-screen in Bullitt but there's nothing in IMDB. Maybe Lalo Schiffrin who did the music.
  2. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    Wife and I just had a Zoom meeting with friends in Toronto and Paris. It was great. They seem to have extended the 40 minutes for free.
  3. On The Moth this morning: https://themoth.org/storytellers/christian-mcbride
  4. Miles in the 70s and 80s....

    Actually I don't have the Amsterdam set. Guess I have to get this too.
  5. Miles in the 70s and 80s....

    Even though it says "56-59"? (I suspect I have it all anyway.)
  6. "Last Albums" or appearances you can recommend

    I think that's where I taped it. (Then years later transferred onto DVD even though the tape looked like crap.)
  7. "Last Albums" or appearances you can recommend

    I've always presumed it was because of the number of artists from different labels who were involved.
  8. Give It Up For Booker!

    I thought it was James Booker.
  9. Miles in the 70s and 80s....

    I want Black Devil (weird I just read about it for the first time about 5 minutes ago-- I have a DVD I made from a vhs I made from a broadcast but it's not the whole concert.) Also what's on Jazz Rarities and Legendary masters?
  10. I used to see him at LA Duke Ellington Society meetings (where, IIRC, he would have books for sale) but I never saw this book.
  11. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    WE have a half dozen N-95 masks left from the fire season 2 years ago. I'm sort of embarrassed to wear one since we're told that they should be reserved for hospitals but the local hospital wouldn't take them because they weren't from an unopened box.
  12. Is it true that there was a (no longer extant) show in which Chet Baker played some Bix tunes?
  13. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    Given that's the basis for her article......
  14. Allison Miller's Boom Tic Boom - Glitter Wolf

    "Otis Day was born on September 21, 1951 in Los Angeles, California, USA as DeWayne Arthur Jessie." From IMDB. I don't think he was Otis Day before Animal House but after the film came out he adopted the name.
  15. TEST POLL

    I suspect I didn't hit "submit" and then looked at the results later. Oh, well if we're all around in another month I'll try again. (I do know 2 people with the virus, one seriously ill.)
