  1. I may be wrong (I often am) but I believe that though the recording may be pd in Europe the composition is not and the Arlen estate is owed money from the European record company. Good luck with collecting that.
  2. I wish I had this signed photo.

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

    75! A mere child. (Says the 76 year old.)
  4. I just got a note from Facebook saying it's Chuck Nessa's birthday. they wouldn't lie would they?
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. IIRC he played bass clarinet when I saw him at a rock festival a couple of years ago.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Abusive and violent jazz musicians

    Juan Tizol pulled a knife on Mingus while they were both with Ellington.
  12. I don't remember much about it except that I thought it was real, real good.
  13. 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.
  14. BFT 182 link and discussion

    KATANGA! (I needed to shout.)
