  1. I wish I had this signed photo.

    Sort of the way I remember the Club Saint Germain. (I saw Wingy Manone there.)
  2. Happy Birthday Chuck!

    75! A mere child. (Says the 76 year old.)
  3. I just got a note from Facebook saying it's Chuck Nessa's birthday. they wouldn't lie would they?
  4. I don't seem to even have the free service but if you do try that link I gave and see what happens. Actually I just clicked on that link and without my logging in (not that I'd know how) I've just heard three Bill Evans cuts in a row-- though one was with Jim Hall.
  5. Huh? Maybe I wasn't listening to Pandora (I thinkI was) but they were playing 3 or four Evans tunes in a row. https://www.pandora.com/artist/bill-evans/ARrwKcVZzxzbkx9
  6. I recently discovered that a couple of my friends usually have their Pandora tuned to "The Bill Evans Station" (or something like that). It's mostly, but not just, Evans's music. They keep it on almost constantly. These people are not big jazz fans so presumably others have also found this station. Does this mean that the Evans estate now gets meaningful income from Pandora?
  7. Reading the history of the band and the rest of the lyrics I on't think that's the case. Wow: how old is she now? I saw her a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.
  8. Saw The Cowboy Junkies Tonight. I loved them. No jazz content but they do have lyrics that go: Lunchtime. I start to dial your number then I remember so I reach for something to smoke and anyways I'd rather listen to Coltrane than go through all that shit again
  9. Abusive and violent jazz musicians

    Juan Tizol pulled a knife on Mingus while they were both with Ellington.
  10. I don't remember much about it except that I thought it was real, real good.
  11. Where is Paul Secor .... ?

    He sent me a pm during that contretemps thanking me for defending him when Jim literally threatened him. I didn't really defend him, just responded to Jim. Didn't seem to be a moderator there.
  12. BFT 182 link and discussion

    KATANGA! (I needed to shout.)
  13. I just read on-line that he had "come out" and was bitter about how some of his former friends reacted. I had a couple of pleasant e-mail exchanges with him and he was very forgiving about my obvious ignorance of the matters I was asking about.
