  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Is it true that there was a (no longer extant) show in which Chet Baker played some Bix tunes?
  4. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    Given that's the basis for her article......
  5. 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.
  6. 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.)
  7. Well obviously not just Downtown, then. I think I first heard about his passion for Petula from Marshall McLuhan who was a friend of Gould and with whom I was studying in Petula Clark's heyday.
  8. TEST POLL

    Uhh Not sure anymore. Sorry I'm an idiot.
  9. APRIL POLL - COVID 19

    Don't seem to be able to. Get the results right away.
  10. BFT 193 Link and Discussion

    It sure sounds like Ray Nance to me on number 11 (Delilah) though I don't think I've ever heard Nance with a group this modern and I have no idea who anyone else is.
  11. APRIL POLL - COVID 19

    Probably not. Can I get back in?
  12. APRIL POLL - COVID 19

    That's strange. I voted and said that I knew someone who was severely ill but when I checked the results it said no one had said that.
  13. Glen Gould used to like her. (Though maybe it was just Downtown.)
  14. “Jazz Omnibus” and Duke Ellington

    IIRC some of the individual cds are the same as previous cd releases, others seem to be new editions (or at least I haven't seen them before) .
  15. “Jazz Omnibus” and Duke Ellington

    Number 2 is 2:41 on Brown Penny. As is Twist on Primping for the Prom.
  16. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    That just proves that stupidity isn't genetic. My FB feed is full of ads from price gauging ads for toilet paper and masks.
  17. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    Tell it to Wallace Roney. Then go out and lick a subway door. My FB feed is full of ads from price gauging ads for toilet paper and masks.
  18. “Jazz Omnibus” and Duke Ellington

    2:41 but it seems to be the same as theme part 2. I found this out because checking Amazon I discovered that Primping for the Prom is available for download. And as is mentioned above both Asphalt Jungle Twist and Cop Out are on it. (Though the mix seems quite different than the Theme Part 2 on Brown Penny.) https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0067GSBCU/ref=dm_ws_sp_ps_dp
  19. “Jazz Omnibus” and Duke Ellington

    They're both on a release called Brown Penny. I think The Asphalt Jungle Twist may have been a single release of the theme.
  20. Wallace Roney R.I.P (COVID-19 victim)

    I saw him a few years ago with Geri Allen on piano. They were great.
  21. “Jazz Omnibus” and Duke Ellington

    Listed as the Asphalt Jungle Twist?
  22. “Jazz Omnibus” and Duke Ellington

    Cop-out is on the latest legitimate (i.e. Sony) cd of Ellington Indigoes. I think Asphalt Jungle Twist is just a renamed Asphalt Jungle. (At least it's not listed in the usually accurate New DESOR.)
  23. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    You got that part right.
  24. BFT 192 Link and Discussion

    Is number 2 The Sons of Kemet? (Though I only hear one bass.)
  25. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This is a great record. Somehow a 12 inch of it was at my family house. Not sure who bought, I think my sister who was hardly a hipster. Then again she bought me The Hawk in HiFi for my 12 birthday.
