  1. Benny Golson

    I saw him live one time at Sweet Basil in 1997.
  2. Found an original pressing of Got a Good Thing Goin' in the cut-out bin of a department store back in the 1970s.
  3. The Tone Poet All Seeing Eye sounds fabulous; much better than my blue 1970s era pressing.
  4. 55 Bar

    The wonderful live music bar in New York City, the 55 Bar, is in danger of closing. Here is their GoFundMe campaign. https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-us-keep-the-55-bar-alive Adored by patrons and musicians alike, 55 Bar is utterly unique in the New York City music scene; an unfussy, inexpensive, dive bar where audiences can watch some of the world’s best jazz and blues musicians from ten feet away. It’s a club where brilliant newcomers can launch their careers and seasoned professionals can workshop new compositions before going out on the road. Regulars include Mike Stern, Leni Stern, Wayne Krantz, David Binney, Adam Rogers, Henry Hey, Keith Carlock, Tim Lefebvre, KJ Denhert, Sweet Georgia Brown, Tessa Souter, Kendra Shank, Ayana Lowe, Duchess, Thana Alexa, Nicole Zuraitis, Ben Monder, Jim Ridl, Jim Campilongo and many, many more. Now, in an all too familiar story, this iconic venue is in danger of closing; however... 55 Bar is savable. The numbers are perhaps too big for the 55 Bar to handle alone, but completely achievable through a wider effort. To that end, we appreciate any and all donations and thank you kindly for reading, for sharing, and for your support over the years. We are all excited to continue the dream of supporting and keeping accessible...great music and incredibly talented musicians!

  9. Big Ears Festival

    I purchased my pass just now. Really looking forward to this. I did notice that hotels seemed to be fuller than usual when I booked a couple of weeks ago, so I would advise taking care of that sooner rather than later if planning to attend.

  13. Passing of George Wein

    I heard him play piano with a group including Buddy Tate, Norris Turney, Slam Stewart, Scott Hamilton, and Warrant Vache at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in 1987. Much later (in 2016), again in New Orleans at Jazz Fest, he came out on stage beaming after a Geri Allen set dedicated to Errol Garner.
