  1. Woodstock - How Much Were They Paid?

    On a recent PBS documentary about Woodstock you hear him say that he improvised Freedom on the spot to entertain the crowd while they tried to get other performers to the site. .
  2. David Crosby tells great Coltrane story

    I liked it. Never been a big fan but I saw Crosby perform at a charity event a year or so ago and was surprised how good he was.
  3. Woodstock - How Much Were They Paid?

    Thanks. Never knew that. IIRC they were really hyped by the Village Voice which was my bible at the time.
  4. Woodstock - How Much Were They Paid?

    What was infamous about The Paupers at Monterey? BTW Academy award winner Howard Shore played in Lighthouse. Two other Canadian band I liked form the '60s were Kensington Market and Chilliwack. (Hmmm: both are place names. )
  5. He also voiced Bugs Bunny in Space Jam.
  6. Booker Ervin

    Though on one of her film vocal performances she was partially dubbed by Andy Williams.
  7. IIRC the stereo release prepared by Steven Lasker is also on the big RCA Centennial box.
  8. Happy Birthday kinuta!

    Happy B'day!
  9. Me too. I presume the first released Handy cd is now a collectors item-- especially if the Mosaic Pops never comes out.
  10. Aren't the stereo and mono editions of JJ Johnson and Stan Getz at The Opera House completely different? Well at my age, as Douglas Adams said "everything is recent since The Beatles broke up" but is everything since 1955 recent?
  11. IIRC (and I often don 't) I had a fake stereo Miles Ahead. And there was a strange phenomena where one some early cd releases alternate tracks were in stereo while the originally released tracks were still in mono (e.g. George Russell's Jazz Workshop on RCA.) Was this because somehow stereo tapes were destroyed in making the original mono releases?
  12. I think that was one number from Rockland Palace.
  13. Woodstock 50th Anniversary Releases

    Thanks for this. How did you even find out about it? (I'll take any Tim Hardin I can get.)
  14. Looking for best places to buy records in Amsterdam

    Worth visiting Concerto even if you don't buy anything. It's just a nice place to be.
  15. Sexiest album covers

    This looks like a good record.
  16. D.À. Pennebaker 1925-2019

    He was still showing Daybreak Express as one of his favorites even after he gained fame with Don't Look Back.
  17. I just found this under a photo on Ricky's Instagram account : "Famed jazz historian, producer and author Chris Albertson passed away on April 24 at the age of 87. The Jazz Foundation of America helped find a home for Albertson’s massive collection, with most of it going to the Institute of Jazz Studies at Rutgers. But Albertson has a close relationship with Louis’s second wife, Lillian Hardin Armstrong, and the Jazz Foundation decreed that anything relating to Lil and/or Louis could go to the Louis Armstrong House Museum. Yesterday, on a sweltering hot summer day, a team comprised of Armstrong House staff members Ricky Riccardi, Sarah Rose, Hyland Harris and Junior Armstead descended upon a storage unit in Amityville, NY to search for Lil and Louis items. 210 boxes were opened and rifled through (with help from Rutgers, New School and Jazz Foundation friends) and we’re happy to report that we have brought some stunning artifacts back to Queens! This includes an autobiographical manuscript Lil and Chris worked on in the 60s; other autobiographical writings by Lil; numerous letters from Lil to Chris; rare photos of young Lil; photos of Louis and Lil from one of her scrapbooks; a framed autographed photo of Louis; a poster for Louis’s 1932 debut at the London Palladium; Lil’s framed version of an original King Oliver publicity photo; and more." BTW The photo makes the storage space look more like a warehouse than a storage space-- not quite of Citizen Kane/Raiders of the Lost Ark proportions but more like someone's basement than a Pod.
  18. I recommend the complete HRS session. They're not all necessary but enough of them are.... I think I need the Lennie Tristano. pm on way.
  19. John Cheever

    I read the Complete Shorts Stories and found them very depressing.
  20. One of the best rock shows I've heard in the last 60 years. (No exaggeration on the time: I saw Bill Hailey and the Comets about 1958.)
  21. The Raconteurs at the SB Bowl. Jack White is the real deal.
  22. IIRC (and I often don't) Martin Sheen comes out of the cave after killing Kurtz and the tribesmen are now all bowing down to him.
  23. I think (don't really know) "final cut" might mean yet another version which Coppola thinks is definitive. I saw it in Cannes when it was first shown there and I don't think that version was ever screened again. IIRC it had a slightly different ending than later versions. The sound at the screening was amazing.
  24. This is a new website for a program called The Hot Club on New York. the whole show is pretty great but at the 1 hour and twenty minute mark they play an uncirculated Benny Goodman and his Sextet featuring Charlie Christian playing a long blues solo!
  25. Moe Koffman - Norwegian Wood

    I remember him being on the Canadian version of Your Hit Parade playing Swinging Shepherd Blues.
